280 Day Challenge

280 Day Challenge - Bring Your Dreams to Life

Welcome to the 280 Day Challenge!

I am so happy to have you join me on this exciting adventure that takes us from where we are now and moves us one giant baby step closer to where we want to be.

280 days is the length of a typical human pregnancy. It is the perfect length of time to give ourselves to achieve some of our other “babies” – our big goals through which we work toward our vision of who we want to be. Like a pregnant mother, we need to talk care of ourselves along the way, grow our supportive relationships and make daily progress toward our goal.

Your goal is just that. It’s yours. So what are you dreaming about. What idea sings in your soul? What daydream has grabbed you and won’t let go? Let’s give it our best 280 days and see where it takes us.

Are you ready to get started?

This isn’t like a lot of other challenges. I’m not going to push you. I’ll be encouraging you. I’ll be sharing insights from my second 280 Day Challenge (feel free to follow along). But the pushing? That’s all you, with maybe some help from your touchstones and other supporters. The guides below will help you prepare, and you decide what your goal is and when  you will start – when the time is right for you.

For now, we’ll take our preparations one week at a time. Don’t be afraid to do things at your own rate. Life happens and we can’t always keep the same pace as everyone else. That is perfectly okay. Do the best you can and make the time and energy decisions that are healthy for you.

Getting Ready for Your 280 Day Challenge

A 280 Day Challenge is like a promise to ourselves to start when we are ready, when the building blocks are in place for the foundation. We’re taking a few weeks to make plans and shore up our personal resources. Then, when we’re ready, we’ll set our start dates (conception) and our finish dates (happy birthday baby!).

Enjoy this journey! Are you excited? Me too!

If you would like to see how it looks a little further down the line, I invite you to take a look at Monica’s first 280 Day Challenge and now my second 280 Day Challenge – Editing my Novel (already in progress) and the headway I have been making. It is exciting, nerve-wracking (in a good way!), and energizing to be going down this path!
