The 30 Day "Idea and Create" Challenge

I just came up with this literally 5 minutes ago, but it could save my life - or sanity at least. Maybe it could do the same for you. One of my great struggles in life is that I over-analyze everything.

  • Should I write this post?
  • What will happen if I choose this instead of that?
  • Is this the right strategy for me?
I could probably write 100 of those if I had the time. But you get the point.

Beginning today, I'm starting a 30 day "Idea and Create" challenge for myself. The thought process behind it is as simple as it sounds. Have an idea that I want to pursue? Start creating content around that idea. Go hard for 30 days. See what happens.

I'm going to take the same approach to social media. I overthink every word on every post I make. I guess I'm worried that my 76 followers on Instagram won't approve, and obviously I'm trying to create for the 'likes', which never works out anyway. I spend far too much time thinking about what my profile should say...but that doesn't really matter when I never post anyway, now does it.

For the next 30 days, just document my life on all platforms. That is going to be the goal. Make at least 1 post on Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok, and LinkedIn. Maybe even Facebook too.

Have an idea and go to work creating. It's the only way I'm getting out of this rut. Can't wait to see how this process plays out.
