Everyday I'm hustling...

A while back, I read about the 30-Day Hustle. This seemed really perfect for me because I knew I would fail if I made a New Year Resolution. But, doing something for thirty days? Easy, breezy beautiful. But, I read about 30-Day Hustle on my phone right before I went to bed, so the details were really sketchy the next day.

I spent the next few weeks trying to find it again. Yeah, I suppose I could have checked my history, but I don't like doing things the easy way--except for New Year's Resolutions. I googled 30-Day Challenge, Issues, Resolutions to no avail and finally it was January and I posted my own Monthly Challenge. I'm not saying I failed because I did what I wanted to do, but I wasn't more productive, which is what I thought the result would be.

Last week, as a new month (or 30-days) approached, my friend Nicole posted on my wall that she'd mentioned me on her blog ... where she was finishing up 30-Day Hustle. Um ... Yeah. That's the word. And then my late night surfing came back to me, and I remembered I was reading Jon Acuff at the time. I enjoy reading Jon Acuff because he's so smooth, like a swimming pool first thing in the morning before anyone has jumped in.

Before I had a chance to forget, I signed myself up, and today is February 1, so it's time for me to hustle!

from my good friend Jon:

1. Find one thing you are going to do in the next 30 days.
I will exercise every day.
2. Make it specific. (Don’t say, “I’ll get in shape,” say, “I’ll lose 5 pounds.”)
I want to do yoga or walk or a 10-minute DVD every day.
3. Make sure its your goal and not someone else’s goal. According to Heidi Grant Halvorson, Ph.D. “People are even better at keeping their New Year’s resolutions when they feel that the resolutions reflect their own personal desires and values.”
This is my goal for me. I will encourage my girls and my hubby to do this with me, but I'm not going to make them do it with me. This is my goal.
4. Write it down and post it somewhere you will see it.

I'm ready to hustle.
