Hey Guys Last month myself and my girlfriend took a challenge for raising money for a hospital. The challenge was run/walk/cycle one hundred miles in a month At first moment we thought:What challenge as we are not good runners. First step was follow the plan 100 miles divided by 4 weeks is equal 25 miles. 25 miles divided by 7 days is equal 3.5 something - it's not a big deal, right? In the end we got our challenge done. What we have learned 1 - Breaking down big goals into small measurable goals is the key to achieve anything. 2 - Surround yourself with people who have similar aims 3- Support and motivate each other is very important 5 - Having a plan and stick to it is crucial - some days we couldn't get the miles done due to weather conditions 6 - Be prepared to adapt - as a said above, despite of having a plan we couldn't control the weather conditions so we had to get more miles done in the following day. Tell me what was the last time you took a challenge? What did you do and what did you learn from it? Have a great weekend!

Hey Guys Last month my girlfriend and I took a challenge to raise money for a hospital. The challenge was to run/walk/cycle one hundred miles in a month. At first we thought: Why are we taking this challenge? [Or, What were we thinking?] We are not good runners! The first step was follow the plan: 100 miles divided by 4 weeks is equal to 25 miles. 25 miles divided by 7 days is equal 3.5 something - it's not a big deal, right? In the end we got our challenge done. What we have learned: 1 - Breaking down big goals into small measurable goals is the key to achieve anything. 2 - Surround yourself with people who have similar aims 3- Supporting and motivating each other is very important 5 - Having a plan and sticking to it is crucial - some days we couldn't get the miles done due to weather conditions 6 - Be prepared to adapt - as I said above, despite having a plan we couldn't control the weather conditions so we had to get more miles done the following day. Tell me when was the last time you took a challenge? What did you do and what did you learn from it? Have a great weekend!
