The Eighty Four Day Experiment





All right here it goes.  At the end of last year, I gave myself the objective of posting one blog post a month for the year of 2019.  I am happy to report, so far so good.  But, change of plans.  As I work towards my goal of supporting women in their individual journeys through self-care, self-empowerment, self-knowledge and self-love I’m cognizant of the fact that it’s important for me to walk the talk.  Now, for the past three weeks I have been stuck.  Stuck in inertia and stuck in self-doubt. 
I have been feeling discouraged and quite frankly feeling a little sorry for myself.  Don’t get me wrong, I think we have the right to have these types of episodes.  They will come up.  But, one thing I’ve learned is that staying in this space for too long is a clear and sure path to nowhere.  So last night I made the decision to set a clear plan for myself that includes daily goals that are aligned with what I want to accomplish in the next few months.  It is an 84-day plan.  Why 84 days?  I find that setting timelines around certain events helps motivate me.  In 84 days, I will be giving a talk at the Fearless Women’s Summit here in Barrie.  I see these next 12 weeks as an opportunity for self-care, reflection and quite frankly experimentation.
What happens when I set clear action steps around specific goals and hold myself accountable by blogging about the experience daily for 84 days?  YIKES!!!

So ready or not, here are my daily action steps, for the next 84 days.

1.     Improving my nutrition by cutting out unhealthy carbs.
2.     Walking one hour a day.
3.     Journaling my progress, challenges and successes on a regular basis.
4.     One hour a day spent working on my coaching model.
5.     One hour a day spent working on my workshop series.
6.     One hour a day spent working on marketing strategies.
7.     One hour a day working on my talk series.

Let’s see how all this turns out!
Till tomorrow!
Joanne
