Day (456) – Phase II of the Better Man Project
I want to introduce you to phase 2 of The Better Man Project. So lets see…it all started February 9, 2011…and today is June 6 2013…800+ days later. I wrote a post earlier today talking about how I have just felt lost lately – and by lately, I mean over the past 3 years since baseball ended for me. While I did find out a lot about myself during phase 1…I have come to a point in my life and in this project where it is time to seriously apply everything towards a large goal. What is that goal? Well actually…let me also introduce you to the book I am working on.
A 365 day project…where I commit myself to a new challenge each and every day. These challenges could be anything, but first, get ready to see my bucket list items completely scratched out. The point of this though is to go after the dreams and goals I have always had on a day by day basis and also attack larger goals throughout the year. I truly believe that writing about an experience while you are in it delivers an awesome look at what actually goes on when people are confronted with victories and defeats and how they respond. For me, there are a few key things that I am going to do every single day that will help me reach a fantastic end result after 365 days of repetition (fitness and life related tasks). In fact, I am trying to simplify my life and remove as many distractions as possible. I often get sidetracked by new shiny toys or the next “big thing” and lose focus. So call this a bit of buckling down.
Another piece of this puzzle is collaboration with others. I love writing and will continue – that is a promise I have made that I will take to my grave – but I also want to be involved with sharing / co-blogging with other people who are passionate. So if that is you, or if you have music, photos, quotes, anything that can motivate and inspire other people, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @BetterManProj. I look forward to hearing from you.
I am also making a huge commitment to YouTube over the next 365 days. In fact, I will be recording a short 5 minute video every single day about something that is on my mind. I will also give you a glimpse into what the challenge was for that day in case you want to join me on this journey.
Love. Passion. Never Quit. These three words have defined the first part of my journey – now its about pouring gas on the fire and taking everything to another level. Lets go.
