If we do not challenge ourselves we do not grow. It is important to push boundaries. We need to have a goal--it could be anything, even a small thing like 'I will wake up at 6.30 am every day for a week.'
Break down your goal into small bits. Accomplish those goals. You will feel really good about yourself.
That is one of the reasons I do a blog marathon. It's not easy to write a new post every single day for a month. I have a LOT of things going on in my life, especially with my new book just being out. There are newspaper interviews, launches ,promotions.
(Oh we--appeared in the Deccan Chronicle today!)
But I decided that it would be a good challenge to do. Hence I committed. (I have done a blog marathon, every year for the last 9 years. Blog marathon means I blog every single day for a month).
The other thing I do is illustrated journalling. Every day, I sit down and draw my day. I share my pages daily on my instagram.
These are two of my pages. You can follow me on Instagram to see them in my stories as and when I finish! I don't post everything on my blog.
Commit yourself to a small challenge which makes YOU feel good. Commit for 5 days if you think a month is daunting.
Tell me in my comment box, how will you challenge yourself?
If you share, I am listening.
