Intentional Life 5-Day Challenge – Starts Monday!

Have you been intentional about the way you speak, think, and spend your time over the past few months?

When we put thought into what we’re saying, how we’re thinking, and what we’re doing with the time we have, we can better reach our goals and make the most of every opportunity.

Intentional Life

This free 5 day challenge will give you a push toward approaching your life in a more purposeful way, based on your values and goals.

The challenge takes place in The Goal List Community on Facebook, starting Monday, April 24. Request to join the community and then RSVP to the challenge event to get your place on the scoreboard.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Each day, there will be a prompt posted in the discussion for this event.
  • Follow the prompt, and then check in by replying to the post to say you did the activity for that day.
  • Get 1 point for completing the activity, and 1 point for checking in (2 points max/day).
  • If you can’t do one of the activities on that day, instead check in with your plan for when you’ll complete it. This will give you 1 point max.

The person with the most points by the end of the challenge gets a surprise!

“Taking it one step at a time”

“If you have the opportunity you need to grab it when it’s there cause you don’t know when you might have the opportunity again. I go traveling just to make the memories…taking it one step at a time.” -Charles

That quote is especially interesting to me because of the context. Charles gradually lost his vision as a teenager, but he doesn’t let that keep him from enjoying travel and nature. In a short video made by Pursuits with Enterprise, he says, “Nine times out of ten when somebody asks you how does a blind man do this or that, the answer is just carefully.”

When I think about travel or other bucket list adventures, sometimes I think of the challenges or fears that make it difficult to accomplish my dreams, which can become overwhelming and keep me from enjoying life. Charles’ statement, “I go traveling just to make the memories,” reminds me of my favorite Aesop quote: “Adventure is worthwhile.”

I don’t like the idea that my fears could keep me from having adventures or making important memories.

This video reminds me that whatever barrier I’m facing, there’s likely a way around it… but I might have to think more carefully about how to move forward.

Watch the video and then leave a comment – What’s holding you back?

4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals – Adam Luff’s Story: “Have Friends on Similar Paths”

goal-achievement-series

This is part of the 4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals series, a walk-through of the process I use to accomplish many things throughout the year. I’m also highlighting stories from people who’ve accomplished big goals in their life or business.

Today, Adam Luff, a freelance screenwriter from the UK, gives us an update on his life since his earlier interview. In the last five years, he’s built up film credits in writing, directing, producing, and editing, and in 2016 really focused on getting into the film world. Adam shares his reflections on this goal, tells us his key to success, and lets us in on his direction for the year ahead.

Check out the posts in the series to read more about clarifying your goal or celebrating success, and be sure to leave a comment about your experience.

The four steps each also have worksheets that help you walk through this process. If you want them, be sure to answer Yes!! on that section on the Insiders signup form (if you’re already signed up, you can update your profile by giving the same email you used before).
