“Live A Better Life in 30 Days” Challenge

So what exactly is this about? Previously I’ve been alluding to this challenge in Facebook/Twitter, as well as in the previous article 101 Ways To Live Your Best Life, and have been receiving many interested responses.

30-Day Month

What’s going to happen: For the entire month of September (30 days), I’ll be conducting a 30-Day Challenge To Live A Better Life (30D LBL).

What’s going to happen is I’ll share a task every day on the blog, a task which will move you towards living a better life. These are not gimmicky tasks – they are important tasks that will improve our lives for the better. Each of them embody the principles I share here at the blog to live your best life. Each task has been specifically created to drive you on the path of self-discovery, conscious living and personal growth. I have personally designed/set each of task and have also done them myself, so I know they have their intended effect.

As with anything that creates real, long-term change in life, each task will take time to think through and digest – from 1-2 hours every day.

While this may look like a lot of time, this is a valuable investment of time that will move your life to a better place at the end of the 30 days. What random activities do you spend every day that you can cut out for this? Facebooking? Twitter? Watching TV? Doing things for others? Are they more important than you living a better, more conscious life? Many 30DLBL participants have told me how just doing the tasks from the first few days have already made them feel lighter, clearer, awakened, more focused and more proactive about life. They already feel motivated about what’s ahead of them, vs. previously. It’s amazing just witnessing and hearing about their changes.

This is not a race. This is not a competition, even though it’s framed as a challenge. This is a movement to change your life for the better, to enable you to be better than who you are, to move you to greater heights in life. If there are days where you can’t commit the time, then follow through in the next day. The most important thing is you take the time out to improve your life. This challenge, without doubt, is a high value Quadrant 2 activity.

I’ll unveil the activity every morning at the blog. Your focus for the day is to do that specific task for the day, and share your results in the comments area of that day’s post. That means at the end of 30 days, you would have done 30 tasks. The tasks have been set in a specific order to deliver the end objective, so it’s important you do them in that sequence.

The end goal at the end of 30 days is for you to emerge a better, more aware and conscious person living a better life compared to 30 days ago. :D

Daily Outline for 30 Days ahead

  1. Morning, 6am: I’ll post the day’s task Singapore time (GMT +8, Greenwich Mean Time. Refer to The World Clock on time differences between SG and your country) here at the blog. I recommend you to read in the morning. Why? Morning is when you start the day and no better way then to start off with a focus on what to do. Also, when you read it in the morning, you have the rest of the day to think over it/do it. SG timing is ahead of most of the world, so the task should be online during morning your time. Join the free newsletter to get the mail delivered in your inbox at the end of the day.
  2. The Task: I’ll share (a) What the task is about (b) Instructions on how to do it. I’ll also be sharing additional documents applicable. Each day, there will be a journal template where you can fill in your thoughts/insights/reflections.
  3. What you have to do: Your focus for the day is to do that task. Don’t put it off to the next day or think of accumulating the tasks to finish in a day. Simply stick to 1 task a day. I recommend you set aside 1.5 hours each day for this (some days will take less time, some take more) so you’ll get quality output. Some readers mentioned they spent 2 hours on each task, but that’s purely at your own choice. If you’re willing to invest more time, you’ll gain more. The more time you spend, the more results you get.
  4. At the end of the day: Share your experience in the comments area for that task. Also write down your thoughts/insights/reflections in the daily journal template that will be provided. This means at the end of 30 days, you’ll have 30 insights to look back on.

#30DLBL Hashtag for Twitter Users

It’s going to be an exciting 30 days ahead, and while each task in the 30 days is an activity that can be done independently, it’s always better when we have user support.

I’ve started to do that an hour ago and other twitters are following on now.
