Here are 5 things I learned about meeting a challenge that seemed almost insurmountable, by resolving to make and post art for 30 days in a row.
week 1:: Just Start. If you are scared, take a leap of faith.
week 2 :: Stay curious. Relax by trusting the process.
week 3 :: Work through the need for perfection & fear of vulnerability
by asking yourself "what's the worst that could happen?"
... and then connecting with the freedom that comes from courage.
week 4 :: Variety & Fun are helpful to develop endurance
& a sustainable practice.
week 5 :: Focus and keep it going, because, as my dad would say,
"lo mejor es el enemigo de lo bueno," or "done is best."
I loved taking on a challenge and I think I will do it again in a month or two... In the meantime, check out the musings of these other rockstar challenge-takers:
