Rob's Challenge: Go 3D in 2012

New Year is just around the corner and everyone is talking about the New Year resolutions once more. Shouldn’t we? Well, as for me, it is a good time when everyone else joins the hype of some resolution at the start of the year, to reflect for myself the accomplishments and blessings for the past year. And it is also a time to face the incoming year with a big bang and a resolution to be the new or better me. Do all your rituals, superstitions and celebrations but do not forget the most important- to be resolute to start again. So let me pose a challenge to everyone to go 3D in 2012. Just three things to do over the weekend:

1. Dream. Whatever it is, not necessarily something to accomplish this year but something you want. Keep it in mind and resolve to claim it for yourself. Travel to Europe? Build a farm? Start a business? Lose weight? Look 10 years younger? Join a marathon? Raise your income? Get your dream job? Buy a house? Identify 3 dreams you want to get in three target years. Stagger them in short and long terms to make it realistic- for example, it can be in one year, in 5 years and in 20 years.

2. Dream Board. Yes, buy a cork board or a white board where you can post or write your dreams. I picked this up from a friend in Facebook and thought it was a good idea. Writing it down, seeing it everyday, and being proud of it makes you want and need it. As my favorite saying goes, “Throw the hat out of the fence so you have to go out to pick it up”. Feel free to use your creativity to write on your dream board.

3. Do it. Really, seriously! Go to the storage room and see if you have a whiteboard. If not, buy one. It does not cost a fortune to do so. You need to do this within 3 days.

So there you have it. My 3Ds. The first step to your dream. My challenge is for you to do these three this weekend. We can make this fun and at the same time serious. So everyone who takes up to the challenge, please share them in this blog by commenting on this post on what you think, any feedback or suggestion. Once you have done the above, send me an email and share your dream/s and when you want to have them (year), a picture of your dream board and how you are progressing. Note that whatever you sent, we may publish them on the blog. Let’s go 3D in 2012!

    It helps to write/doodle about dreams in a small notebook, too 🙂 I regret not starting the habit earlier, I would have laughed at all the absurd dreams I once had. Decide on a standard notebook size (mine has to be moleskine-sized, but not necessarily moleskine cause those darn things cost a fortune,) so that they look really pretty when stacked :))

      Thanks for visiting Inacaps. I also have a small notebook to write down my goals and progress. I found that it helps to have this and check on a weekly basis by spending a quiet 10 minutes time. However, the dream board is like a strong push as it is always there to remind you every morning if it’s hanging somewhere in your bedroom. And in case you want to start this year with a dream board or a small notebook, do remember that dreams are meant to be achieved. Why not make the step again?
