#CountdownChallenge, #13: How has the year been for you?

This is the question #13 of the 13-Day #2013Countdown Challenge as we count down to the year of 2013 as one PE community. The challenge is now over, but you can still read more about it and participate in your own time. Visit the overview page for all 13 countdown questions.

Welcome, welcome, and welcome to the 2013 Countdown Challenge! I’m Celes (Celestine Chua), and I’m your host for this challenge. Thank you for reading this and being on board with me! 😀


Have You Signed Up Yet?

Just because you are reading this or receiving this email does NOT mean you are signed up for the challenge. You have to officially sign up by way of the three steps here:

Why sign up? I know from past challenges that some “participants” do not sign up. Instead, they observe the challenge by the wayside, skim through the daily tasks (since they are on the newsletter), pick the ones they feel like reading, and jump in to post their comments when they feel like it.

I can understand such behavior, but I don’t feel it’s good participation etiquette. I always feel if you want to do something, you commit yourself all the way. That’s what I do, and that is why I consistently get great results for what I do. If I do something, I commit myself 100%. If I decide not to do it, I will not do it. As simple as that.

Wishy-washy, half-baked efforts will give you wishy-washy, half-baked results. Full commitment will get you to where you want to be. Pledge yourself for this 13-day countdown challenge and commit yourself to the 13 questions that are coming up. I’ve already committed myself to being in this challenge with you in the next 13 days, and so have over 140 180 official participants (and counting). So why can’t you join us in this wonderful end-of-year reflection and 2013 countdown?

I look forward to seeing you sign up. 😀 Again, sign up here:

13 Days of Countdown, Starting Today! (Dec 19)

For the next 13 days, starting today (Dec 19), I will be posting one question a day pertaining the year of 2012 and how it has been for you. Your role is to reflect on this question each day and post your answers within the day itself.

To mimic the countdown fashion, I will be posting each day’s question with a number. The first question will be numbered “13”. The second will be numbered “12”, and so on and so forth.. all the way till we reach “1” (Dec 31) and finally “0” (the final roundup day of the challenge).


If you don’t know what I’m saying, no worries. Just reflect on and post your answers to the question I post each day. You’ll know what I’m saying soon enough! 😀

Please Sign Up First Before You Proceed

Once again, please sign up at https://personalexcellence.co/blog/2013countdown-challenge/#signup before you proceed to the first question. Sign ups are 100% free. Signing up is something you do for yourself and also to the community as your pledge of commitment will spur others to commit themselves to this wonderful initiative too!

2013 Countdown, Starting with Question #13…

The first question of the 2013 Countdown Challenge is:

How has your year of 2012 been?

Your Task

  1. Reflect and answer today’s question. There’s no word limit – whether minimum or maximum. Write as few or as many words as you want. It’s all up to what you want to express!
  2. Share your answer. After you are done writing, copy and paste your answer in the comments area and post it there.
  3. Check out other participants’ answers. Other participants will be sharing their answers too, so feel free to read and reply to their answers. This is a community challenge, so let’s support each other in these 13 days leading up to the new year! 🙂

Look forward to reading your answers! 🙂

(After you are done, proceed to #12: What are 12 things you love about year 2012?)
