When I started this blog, it was to record the weekly activities of my yearlong challenge. Fifty two challenges in fact; from weight loss to de-cluttering, and zip wires to novel writing competitions.
Setting such a challenge would make anyone feel overwhelmed, I know I was! Coping with any change in our life can also feel overpowering, such as quitting smoking, losing weight, redundancy or health issues. They all set up a mammoth task that can feel like it’s too much to handle.
To enable me to succeed in my fifty two challenges, I had to break this huge goal into small chunks. I took it one month at a time. January was all about weight loss. In February, I concentrated on fitness. March was a creative month, and so on. Adopting this principle helped me see my goal as more achievable.
