Day 90 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Focus

When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.
~Ken Blanchard

Day 90 - 90

WoO-HoO!  Today is the final day – Day 90 – of the 1% Change {90-Day Challenge}!

How did you do?  After looking back over these 90 days, can you see some growth?  Maybe you didn’t experience 1% Change every day, but how about every week?  If you were to rate your growth how would you rate yourself?

Today may be a day for celebration for you – you made some positive changes –  or it may be a DaY FoR ReFleCtiOn if you didn’t follow through on your good intentions.  I’m hoping it is a day for both.

And as you reflect, use these questions and come up with your own to assess your growth, as well as learn from your experience:

  • How did I succeed?
  • Why did I have this success?  (What did I do to contribute to that success?)
  • How did I fail?
  • Why did I have this failure? (What did I do to contribute to that failure?)
  • If I were to do this challenge again or something similar, what would I need to adjust to have better results?

As I reflect on my 90 days, I see successes – I kept at it even when I didn’t feel like it, but I also see failures – I lost focus from time to time.  With my successes I congratulate myself and with my failures I devise a plan for the next time I face a similar situation.

How are you going to build on your experience from this challenge?  You can use it for your BeNeFiT regardless of whether it was a success or failure.  What is your next step?

I hope you’ll use this experience as a stepping stone to where you want to go!

BeSt WiShEs!!

Day 14 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} The Two Strongest Warriors

Day 14 - 90

This morning I’m sitting at my table with a CuP oF HoT tEa, gazing out the window.  It is a beautiful morning here and the quietness and peace beckons me to stay for a while.  Just a couple of months ago, one of my mentors, Scott M. Fay, encouraged me to spend some time ReFleCtiNg.

Cup Tea

And that is exactly what I am doing. Reflecting on what I read this morning in Emotional Intelligence 2.0 {the chapter entitled Sleep On It} which began with the following:

“In the timeless classic, War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy wrote that the two strongest warriors are time and patience.”

 That spoke to me as this is exactly what my 1% Change {perseverance} is all about – time and patience!  It’s actually ironic, but something in me wishes there was a quick fix to time and patience.  How crazy is that!  The achievement side of me just wants to just RiP iT LiKe a BaNd-AiD and be done with it!

But I am beginning to understand that as uncomfortable and painful as waiting is, this is the very thing that works out the impatience and the quick-fix mindset I have.

TiMe aNd PaTieNcC.

Like the shot you hate to get, but are so glad you did when it’s all said and done.
