I just read THIS STORY about a guy who set himself five New Year ‘challenges’ instead of resolutions.
His 2006 challenges were to:
1) Appear on TV
2) Meet someone who has starred in a computer game
3) Start a celebrity-signed teabag collection
4) Break a world record (for eating most brussel sprouts in a minute)
5) Fly in a helicopter.
I think this is a totally neat idea!
I never bother with resolutions because I know that they’ll be forgotten by the time February rolls around. The concept of establishing clear objectives to be achieved in a defined time period is much more up my alley – my competitive instincts just won’t allow me to resist a challenge like this. Plus, it’s fun of course, especially because I can challenge myself to do some of the things that I always say I want to do, but never actually do.
So I’ve decided I’m going to set myself five challenges for 2007.
