3 Reasons to Complete Personal Challenges
What I like best about assigning yourself challenges is:
1) They are a surprising learning opportunity
Changing your habits of TV/Exercise/Sleep/Cleaning/e.t.c., sheds a big light on your relationship with those habits. If you want to know how you use the letter “b” in your writing, try using the letter twice as much or try writing without it. If you want to know the impact that TV has on your life, try giving it up.
2) They are a gateway to continued good habits
When you exercise everyday for one month. It is almost effortless to exercise a several times a week the following month.
3) They teach you how to integrate good habits into your life
Logistics are a big stumbling block to adopting good habits. For example, sometimes the hardest part of exercising is figuring out when to do it, where to shower, how to pack a bag, and how to handle laundry. When you force yourself to exercise, you also force yourself to solve and practice all the logistics involved.
