Another 30-day challenge?! Why I’m taking the Day Designer May Challenge

As long-time readers of this blog may have already guessed, I’m a sucker for a good challenge. 30-day challenges are my biggest motivator in life, for whatever reason, so when I saw that Day Designer was offering a free “30 Days To Your Best You” Challenge, I knew I had to sign up.

The goal of this challenge is to focus on daily habits. Having recently read Gretchen Rubin’s Better Than Before, I’m now armed with a lot of self-knowledge and information about habit formation, so I’m eager to start forming, reforming, and cutting habits from my daily routines.

In short, I’m pumped!

But… I still don’t have a planner I really love yet. (And no, I don’t own a Day Designer, either, in case you were wondering whether this is a paid advertorial. It totally isn’t!)

So today I’m printing out a bunch of Day Designer’s free pages, to prep for the challenge, and working in particular on their Intentional Living Worksheet.

As a Rebel, this strikes me as rather corny, but since part of the challenge is also to keep an open mind, I’m doing my best to think about what I, Rebel, really want to do with my month, and how to accomplish that. Despite my rebellious tendencies, I still need to get things done, so planning everything out and figuring out a good schedule that will work for me is the key to tricking myself into doing what I really want to do. It sounds a little backwards, but that’s me.

Will you join me?

The challenge is starting tomorrow, May 1, so there’s still time for you to join! If you’re interested in signing up, just click here.
