Ok here it goes everyone! My first public personal challenge: I’m going to accomplish my daily To-Do List for 100 days!
Before the end of 2013, I saw a Youtube video of this gorgeous woman who learned how to dance in a year. Her name is Karen X. Cheng. After her dancing milestone, her video has gone viral and she has been appearing in major T.V. networks in the U.S. She’s not only a dancer. She also codes and used to work in Microsoft (but she resigned already. Watch her sing her resignation letter)!
She founded GiveIt100.com with a very amazing vision that empowers people to get started, work on their dream, and accomplish it. The platforms seems like a short clip vlogging site for the starters. Their start-up aims to “educate” people that there is hard work before achievers reach the spotlight. “When you watch someone perform or score the winning point – you’re only seeing a brief moment of glory. What you don’t see is thousands of hours of preparation,” about page of GiveIt100.com.
So I decided to a start my own GiveIt100 project. Mine is about sticking to my daily To-Do list since I would like to boost my daily productivity. I’m also going to use different productivity tools every week and publish a review on our main website. I’m also going to publish my daily report here on this microblog.
I’m still considering the $100 Challenge. The rule is every time you miss a day on your project, you donate $1 to charity. It’s really cool but I think I would pass. I’ll do it for my next project.
This is just a test project and I’m still working on a more ambitious project focusing on the “real” problems of fellow Freelance Yuppy out there.
Here’s my video explainer for Day One:
