Any questions, post them below in the comments section and I’ll revert to you shortly. Thank you! :)

  • Ffion

    Maaaan… I’d love to get this, and the DLBL… but I’m saving for my Feldenkrais training course at the moment and I’m strapped for cash… Argh. Even though 42$… 36$… is probably a fantastic rate for such a great course… Guess I’ll have to wait…. maybe on the next run… :)

    Wishing you all the best for this new project though. It sounds very exciting. :D

    Will you be running free courses again in the near future? Like 21DJC, 21DPC etc.? I really enjoyed the last one :D They really help me figure out a lot about myself.

    • Celes

      Hey Ffion! Aw that’s a pity! I’m sorry to hear about that but look forward to when you can get the program and join us in the official runs. I definitely really enjoyed and appreciated your active participation during the last PE challenges, and I know the other readers did, too!

      As I shared in the post, I don’t think I’ll be running free challenges anymore. It took up a lot out of my schedule and was not an appropriate investment given the time and effort. It’s also why I decided to create the official program/guidebook/workbook for 30BBM, as a way to conclude the spree of monthly challenges in the past 7-8 months. Out of every single challenge on PE, 30DLBL and 30BBM are definitely the most crucial, mainstay programs one should take to boost one’s growth, and hence why I want to conduct them at least 1-2 times a year.

      • Ffion

        Thank you :) Makes me very happy to hear :D I really enjoyed the challenge.

        Aw, that’s a real pity. The challenges were always really fun, and I learned so much about myself in such a short time… :) They were really great.

        Maybe by the next run I’ll be earning some money, then I can join ^^

  • Krystle

    SO exciting… I cannot wait. I’ll be purchasing this right away tomorrow AM as soon as it is available!

    • Celes

      That’s awesome, Krystle! I hope you’ll be joining the May 30BBM too. It’ll be an exciting challenge for sure! :D

      • Krystle

        I’m patiently waiting… ready to buy, nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! :)

        • Celes

          It’s here, it’s here! :D Download link here. Let me know if you have any problems with the purchase or the purchase process!! Stay tuned for the announcement for the May run on 29 April! :D I’ll most likely have it up by 28 April (evening)!!

  • Joyce

    How do I order?

    • Joyce

      I think I missed the launch – boo hoo

      • Celes

        You didn’t miss the launch! ;) It’s on 27 April, 9am EST. As of the posting of this comment it is only 26 April, 11:46am EST.

        The sales page will go life about 21 hours from now and I will send out the newsletter as well as update this post (this very page you’re reading now) with the sales link. You will be able to download and use the program right away. :D

  • Matt

    Hi Celes

    I think 30BBM was a less intensive course than others. If I remember correclty there were several catch-up days and the exercises were simpler and took less time to complete than 30DLBL.

    Will this updated 30BBM follow a similar model to the first or will it be more intesive?

    • Celes

      Hey Matt! Thanks a lot for your question! I wouldn’t say 30BBM was a less intensive course than others – it was definitely less intensive than 30DLBL, but that’s only because 30DLBL is really intensive. I think the other past challenges like 21DJC, 21DPC, 21DMC, 21DFC are quite lightweight and simplistic compared to 30BBM.

      That said, the new version of 30BBM will definitely be “heavier” than the old version, in terms of the number of tasks and the direction of the tasks. There will be no more rest days – the new 30BBM consists of 30 daily tasks, with one task for each day. In the public run, I had the rest days because it was a live challenge and many participants couldn’t catch up, so I had to insert break days on the fly for them to keep up.

      While there are no rest days and there is a task every day, I’ve paced out the program and the tasks such that it’s very manageable – even busy people who have work/familial responsibilities can still follow the program (I think it’s a little different for 30DLBL which is so intensive that some people can’t keep up at all, which I’ll be working on changing in the second edition). For the new 30BBM, there are 9 new tasks (including Day 0 pre-work), and for the “existing” tasks, many of them have been reworked such that one looks “deeper” and gets more out of the exercises.

      I’d say on the whole on a comparative basis, 30DLBL focuses more on theory/planning (with action as well), while 30BBM has theory/planning with heavier emphasis on action. It is related to the nature of the course too, since life development (what 30DLBL is about) has a lot to do with proper planning first, after which one sets off to achieve the goals, while character development (what 30BBM is about) comes a lot from taking action.

  • Christina

    Hi Celes,

    This looks really awesome!!! I can definitely see all the hard work you put into this already, and I think I could really benefit from this program immensely.

    Unfortunately May is going to be super crazy for me–I would only be able to devote about one week to this before all the craziness starts. I’ll be moving in the middle of the month and then travelling for the rest of it into June. I’m excited about all the changes, but feeling a little disappointed that I won’t be able to participate in this. I hope to catch the next one–when do you think it will be?


    • Celes

      Hey Christina!! :D Thank you for your kind comments! I’m very excited about the launch and I believe the participants will really benefit tremendously from this new program (provided they work through the tasks duly). It took a lot of work than I realized but the end result is going to be very worthwhile.

      Aw, that’s such a pity regarding not being able to join the May run! If you like, you can definitely join in the May challenge for that 1 week, then sporadically follow through on the forum updates (if you want). It’s not the most ideal situation, but it’s one possible option. Or you can always do it in your own space first, then join in the next live run.

      As for the next 30BBM, I’m thinking September, most probably. Pacing wise, I’m planning to have 30DLBL during the mid-point and end of each year, while 30BBM will be at the end of the first and third quarters of each year. This way, there’s a challenge every quarter for us to regroup and get working on our growth.

      • Christina

        Hi Celes,

        That’s a good idea about joining up for at least part of the challenge. It makes me feel like a flake if I can’t contribute all the way, but that could be a good compromise. Let me give that some thought!

        Getting ready to pick some articles of yours right now to share with my readers–this will be fun!


  • Nikkiko

    Hey Celes,

    I’m very happy to have stumbled upon your site somewhere around the start of my exam period – when I was looking for advice on studies, future careers, as well as relationship, emotion and personal management. (Even happier that you’re a Singaporean like me ’cause our society/context seems quite unique + you totally understand the pressures here.)

    I’ve been exploring your blog and articles for around a couple of weeks. Not only have I been finding almost everything I’ve always been looking for to read on with the most constructive advice ever, I’m even more glad that your new program focusing on personal development is launching today – just nice after my last exam paper later in the afternoon! (It’s fated wahaha!!! =D)

    Thank you for putting so much effort and dedication into helping others find the best in themselves! <3

    I'll definitely be one of the first few Singaporeans to support you during the 9pm launch tonight!

    You're awesome!
    Keep it up!

    • Celes

      Hey Nikkiko, thank you so much for your kind words! That’s very sweet of you. :D It’s great to know that there’s a fellow Singaporean reading the site. I think about 20-30% of the readers are Singaopreans though it seems a lot lesser since they usually don’t post any comments.

      And that’s fantastic that your last paper is today! Congratulations on the end of your exams (I can still remember how it’s like!) – and such great timing too, since you’ll be able to do the 30BBM Program with everyone else in the May Live run! I look forward to hearing your feedback after getting the program! :D

  • Ken

    I will be back to doing this one! I skipped the April challenge because of a vacation I took. My mother came to visit the US, and I got to do one of my favorite passion, motorsport photography. So I took a break from the Challenge. But I’m back and so is my best friend! :hug:

    It was kind of funny day. Yesterday I had a really crappy day at work. And this morning didn’t start out so great. It’s just one thing after another and to think about doing this challenge May, i really didn’t feel up to committing to this. I just felt no way it’s too much. But all my friend had to say was that we can keep each other accountable, and that was enough of a reason to make the commitment.

    We are both looking forward to this! Thank you Celes for all of your hard work for this project.

    • Celes

      That’s awesome, Ken! :D I’m really happy to hear that you’ll be joining the May challenge. I really appreciated your active participation in 21DPC and I’m ecstatic to hear that your friend will be joining the May 30BBM too. You may find the program helpful in addressing whatever challenges you may be facing in work/life, so it’s not necessarily going to draw attention away per se as much as it’s going to help make things better!

  • Celes

    Hey everyone! Sorry for the downtime for the past few hours – there was too much site traffic (seems like too many people rushing to the 30BBM sales page). The site is back up, so please proceed to get your copy of 30BBM if you haven’t!! To be fair to everyone, I’ll be extending the launch offer by *4 more hours* to make up for the downtime, so the offer will end on 28 April, 1pm EST.

    For those who have purchased, feel free to share your feedback on the program here if any! I noticed some of you purchased 30BBM and 30DLBL together – note that 30DLBL will be having a second edition released on May (with 7 new tasks), and anyone who purchased 30DLBL since 26 April (i.e. you) will get the upgrade automatically for free. So purchase away without risks!

    Stay tuned for the May 30BBM live run announcement in a day’s time!

  • Ish

    Hi Celes, it’s awesome!! I could hardly wait to get back home last night to click on the link.
    I’ve been read though the first week of activities and can hardly wait for the May challenge :dance:

    I have all your books already and not likely to miss one now. It may sometimes seem like I’m a e-book / pers dev junkie. I do procrastinate on some exercises and I am not consistent throughout challenges. But looking back, since I started the first 30DLBL and with all that have come after, there have been many incremental changes in my life and my life is much better now, both on a personal level and professional as well. I’m sure it will continue to get better.
    Thanks a lot for everything. :hug: :hug:

    • Celes

      Hey Ish, aw, thank you so much for your kind words!! :D I’m so glad that you like the output.

      I never thought of you as a self-help junkie at all, even though you sometimes say that! You are constantly taking action, following up on the goals you set, and always seeking to improve yourself. That is NOT anything a self-help junkie will do at all.

      I want to also take the chance here to really thank you for all your support all these years. As you said, you have gotten all the products @ PE to date (of course I don’t expect my readers to buy for the sake of buying, but to get them because they see the value behind them), and that kind of support means the world to me. It helps me to focus on creating more content and sharing it with all of you!

      I’m really looking forward to the May live run too – some of the 30DLBL alumni will probably be there as well. :D

  • Kirsten

    Well, I did it I brought 30BBM . I may have to do it quietly on my own because of family commitments. Will it be beneficial to get 30DLBL in the near future?


    • Celes

      Hey Kirsten! Thank you for your purchase! :D That’s a pity that you can’t join the May 30BBM challenge – but there’ll probably be a live run for 30BBM again in the second half so you can consider joining then.

      For some reason, I was under the impression you got 30DLBL when it came out! The current 30DLBL live run schedule is to have one in June, so it’ll definitely be beneficial for you to get 30DLBL (either now or then, doesn’t really matter though the earlier you get the faster you can use and benefit from the program). You can definitely join in 30DLBL during the live run in June (assuming you don’t have other commitments).

      • Kirsten

        Hi Celes. yes, you are right but I seem to have misplaced that information. Will look through my emails and pc and see if I can find it. You spoke about the changes happening for 30DLBL, does that mean I will need to purchase 30DLBL, if I want to take part?

        • Celes

          Hey Kirsten! No not at all, no repurchase is needed – the changes for 30DLBL will be an “upgrade” rather than a total change in the program. My current plan is to provide the upgrade at a small nominal fee to existing owners of 30DLBL. I’ll be sharing more details in May, so stay tuned!

          • Kirsten

            Great to know, because I just found the email confirm my purchase of 30DLBL way back in 2010 but sadly can not find the workbook and guide, so hopefully with the upgrade I will be able to get the whole lot again. I am going to do the challenge with everyone and will just catch up or at least look at what needs to be done during my family gathering next weekend. I have saved it in my dropbox so i will be at look at while travelling. This going to go so well with my new exercise program.


  • Kimberly

    Just bought my copy as well… this looks fantastic so far, Celes! I can’t wait to get started. Thank you for putting this together! :D

    • Celes

      Hey Kim, that’s fantastic!! :D Thank you for your support! I’m SO pumped for the upcoming May 30BBM run!!! :D I think it’s going to be one of the most exciting challenges yet because it’s going to be in a private and more closely knitted community. :D

  • Tina

    Hi Celes,

    When will those who purchased 30BBM have access to the forum? I only have access when I view the forum as a guest. When I login in to my forum account, I do not have access.

    (Forum login: smile0826)

    • Celes

      Hi Tina! I’ll be posting a separate announcement post for the May Live run tomorrow (it’ll be a new blog post) and those who sign up via the post will get access to the forum. (The purchase system and the forums system are totally separate so purchasing it doesn’t instantly lead to access.)

      Thanks for letting me know that the forum is viewable as a guest – it’s not suppose to be so. I’ve corrected it now.

  • Ramprasad Padhi

    Just downloaded the GuideBook and the WorkBook
    Cant wait to get started
    Looks very promising ahead and hope this evolves me into something I have always dreamt of
    Thanks Celes for sharing this resource :clap:
    Appreciate tips to help get the most out of this program

    • Celes

      Hey Ramprasad, thanks for your support! :D Stay tuned for the May run announcement tomorrow. In the meantime, you can read the first chapter with the introduction and overview to get started first. Also check out page 8 which has a list of tips on how to get the most out of 30BBM. :D

  • Bette

    Celes, HI!!!!! :hug:
    This is exciting! !! A brand spanking new 30BBM! :dance: Congrats to you for your successful completion of doing all the work that has made possible this new birth/work!!!!! :dance: And also to me for signing up/purchasing and going for even deeper exploration, revealing self-discoveries, and greater insights and realizations! :dance:
    Good to know about the 120 hours to access and the 3 downloads. Glad I will be near a printer after today, since I am in the process of traveling fom Puerto Rico to Ft. Lauderdale to North Carolina! Actually, I departed San Juan yesterday afternoon, and I am in the car right now(as a passenger) heading up the highway through Georgia! Ahh, such devotion/commitment to Personal Excellence! :heart:

    I was one of the one of the ones who was on line yesterday trying to take advantage of early bird sign-in! Good to see the note from you this morning about the server snafu! I was able to complete the purchasing process this morning

    Question has to do with 30DLBL. I purchased the guidebook and workbook for 30DLBL last time, and made just one print out and wrote right on the templates/charts in the workbook. Is there any way to print out those templates for 30DLBL so I have master blank copies to print out anytime in the future that I would like to re-evaluate my self-growth? This question and idea of making a master copy of the templates so I would always be able to continue fresh, and on fresh sheets of paper all throughout my life just occurred to me when I just purchased 30BBM and read how we have 120 hours to get the info for the guidebook and workbook.

    SO good to hear from you, Celes, and good to keep growing together along with the increasing number of us who are committed to living our best life! :heart:

    Thanks for everything Celes, and again, congrats for continuing to implement your vision in ever-great and expanding ways! :bow:
    All the best,

    P.S. Another question is a combined few quesrtions, I suppose. I couldn’t find my way back to the questions/whatever after you closed the comments to 30DPC, and there was an area where we could come to post feedback. ??? Then, I couldn’t find a general discussion area where any of us could just toss out a comment to each other in the hopes of keeping in touch after we’ve met on challenges, etc. I kept looking around in the forums and seeing people’s older journals, but not a general discussion area. Am I dreaming there is such a place? Am I making any sense here?
    Gotta jump off…don’t have a car charger and have to be mindful of the battery. Will check back this evening or in the morning.

    • Celes

      Hi Bette angel!! :D It’s so wonderful to see your reply and know that you’ll be joining in the May 30BBM challenge! :D Thank YOU so much for your support and for getting the program!

      Are you traveling for vacation now?? That sounds like a very busy itinerary!! Hopefully you’ll be back home in May so you can focus on the 30BBM challenge 100%??

      Ok, I’m going to address your questions one at a time:
      1) 30DLBL Templates – Actually the workbook pdf provided is the master template itself. After you print out your workbook (I assume you prefer hard copy over digital copy, since you mentioned printing), use that as your master copy. Then, whenever you do a 30DLBL cycle, get a photostated copy of the workbook. Per page costs for photostating is usually quite low, and when you print in bulk (100+ pages for the workbook is considered bulk I’d assume), it should be at an even better price.

      But the best way if you ask me is to just use a digital copy, which is where the .odt version comes in (which came with the product package). You can create unlimited copies, easily refer to answers from past cycles, and it’s $0 cost.

      By the way, if you’re planning to print another copy of the 30DLBL workbook, hold off first since I’m working on the second edition for 30DLBL. It’ll be released in a couple of weeks time and all existing owners of 30DLBL will get to upgrade to that.

      2) Discussion area: Actually when you go to the forums, you see the “Journaling Forums”. Scroll down and you’ll see the “Discussion Forums”. “General Discussions” sub-forum is the place to go. Feel free to start any discussion you want there! Though the journaling forums seem to be the most popular.

  • Celestine Chua

    Thanks everyone for your support! :) Feel free to post any queries you have about the 30BBM here and I’ll get to you shortly! Thank you! :)

  • tracey50

    will you be running another 30BBM challenge. I have noticed it has been 1 – 3 years since the last one. Thanks

    • Celestine Chua

      Hey Tracey, thanks for your interest! 30BBM and 30DLBL switched to being self-administered challenges since 2012, with the members portal being the space for product buyers to do the challenge in their own time. There are no longer live runs for the 30DLBL/30BBM. The members portal has turned out to be a much welcomed solution as members are able to do the challenges in their own time, and I’ve also been able to create new courses and challenges on PE for both new readers and long-time readers (the Kindness Challenge, Gratitude Challenge, Affirmation Challenge, and Anti-Procrastination Course being some examples), making it a win-win solution for everyone.

      I noticed that you got your copies of 30DLBL and 30BBM in 2013 — you are welcome to log into the members portal (the information provided in the confirmation e-mails you got when you purchased) and do the challenges any time you want. There is a comments section at the bottom of each day’s task where you can post your results and use as a self-accountability tool. You are also welcome to create a journal in PE Forums and journal your challenge progress there too. There are many long-time PE readers who hang out there who journal their life progress and personal goals there, and it’s an excellent platform to get accountability and support.
