Yesterday, I completed the second month of ‘The Power of Everyday project.’ For those of you who haven’t read about it before, let me share a brief overview of the project.
The Power of Everyday is a project that investigates the effect of consistent deliberate practice on the body, mind and soul. Each month I pick up a few actions that I resolve to repeat every single day. In the end of the month, I reflect on the progress and learnings along the journey here on my blog.
Last month, I had five challenges to complete everyday-
1) To wake up before sunrise and write a page about it with my left hand (26/31)
2) Daydream for half an hour and write a page about it (25/31)
3) Practice Yoga every single day (25/31)
4) Celibate (31/31)
5) Write and publish a blog post every single day (30/31)
So how did I fare this month. In the month of April, I had a 100% success rate.
While I could not have similar success this month, I still learnt a lot.
I have mentioned in the brackets how many days out of 31 days of May was I able to finish the task.
The days I missed out on doing the tasks were mostly because of my peripatetic lifestyle at the moment. It is difficult to keep doing the daily tasks while being on the road, when you don’t know where you’re going to sleep at night.
Keeping that in mind, in June, I am only taking up those tasks that I can fulfil considering my current travel lifestyle.
I will keep sharing individual posts about what I’ve learnt from each of these experiments in the month of May over the next few days.
Meanwhile, I would like to share the projects for June for ‘The power of everyday project.’
Tasks for June :
1) Daydream and write two pages about it
2) Practice Yoga every day
4) Write and publish a blog post a day
5) Spend 10 minutes on ear training every day
As you can see I’ve only added one new task this month.
I wish to be realistic and choose tasks that I can complete every day when I’m travelling.
This month, I wish to have some company in this project.
I invite you to choose a simple task that you’d like to do every single day and experience the progress first hand.
We all want to improve, don’t we?
Let’s commit to one simple task and take little steps to an evolved version of our self.
You can share your task for the month of June for ‘The Power of Everyday’ project in the comments below.
Let’s keep each other accountable and engineer our personal growth.
I look forward to know how you are challenging yourself this month.
