Charlie says

I created some PDFs of year long calendars, but they’re on my work computer, so I’ll have to share those with you guys later.

Any projects that you are going to start working on little bit each day?


Don’t break the chain

Hey everyone!

I’m here again, and I’m going to be making some changes this year! It’s going to look a little different than it did last year, but it’s still going to be awesome. All are welcome to join!

This year I’ll be using the idea of not breaking the chain. It’s an idea that I was introduced to by Charlie McDonnell last year on YouTube.

To be honest, I’m far too tired right now to look up all the links and video and such, but I plan on writing (somewhere) daily this month at least, so I’ll get you that information soon!

What have you got going this year?

Reading again

I’ve kind of fallen off the bandwagon with this whole making changes thing, but I don’t feel so bad when I look at the amount of pending posts here. It looks like we’ve all gotten a bit busy.

Last month I bought a Nook before leaving Barnes & Noble, so I could take advantage of the discount (only to have them lower the price now, of course!). It’s been awesome, and I’ve been reading almost non-stop since then. So this month I’m not only going to read 4 books (I would say 5, but I do have a bit of a vacation coming up in less than 3 weeks, and it’s not a reading type of vacation), I’m going to make sure that The Happiness Project is one of them.

I’m not used to reading non-fiction books, which I think is why it was so easy for me to not pick it up again when I put it down, but it’s what I’m committing to this month, so it’s going to happen! I hope to come out of this change with a great new appreciation for reading (and I already love it) and some great ideas and tips on continuing this 12 changes project.

What have you guys been up to? Any awesome successes? Any tips for us to learn from some hard times you’ve had?

It’s time again!

It’s it’s the first day of February, and as it stands for most of us “changers,” the beginning of our second month. I had a pretty awesome first month, as far as all of the changing goes. The whole 1:1 ratio of my favorite drink to water was just the ticket for me. With the exception of the last two days, when I’ve been sick, I had less than no problem getting all the water that I had in mind.

So what’s in store for February?

Honestly, I’m still not 100% sure.

Scratch that. I am sure. I’d started the water thing a few days before January started, and without intending to, I’d tried to start February’s change early as well. Except for that thing that I mentioned about being sick. Hell, as I write this, it’s just after 3 AM on the first of February because I’ve slept so much in the past 36 hours.

Obviously I need to be getting to bed if I’m going to make this change happen. Yet here I am typing!

I think what I’m really trying to say is that I think this change is going to be a bigger challenge for me. But so many of us have already made changes this past month, and with your support and your tips from last month, I believe I can get through it!

What are you going to be changing this month?
