What we know is that it is very difficult to change someone else’s mind. We also know that is can also be very difficult to even change our own minds. While personal bias, prejudice, ingrained thoughts and behaviors can all very difficult to overcome there is very solid sociology and science to help us along that journey.
The rat race, we are all participants in some form or another, going hard, pushing and doing our best to get ahead. What if all of that energy and motion is actually just us flailing around and being dangerous to others? There is a better way...
So basically Bryant had a really great idea… What if we stopped trying to do some huge things, that we rarely accomplish, that we have to commit to for 365 days and start making smaller incremental changes for 30 days at a time? It is brilliant!!!
New Year’s resolutions have always been a bit of a mystery to me. Until about five or seven years ago (something odd), I simply ignored them altogether. It was at that point, that my understanding of resolutions changed, which in turn changed how I approached them.
The challenge is simple: Each month we (Bryant and Stephen) will start a 30 day journey focusing on one meaningful and achievable goal. We begin on the first day of each month and end on the last, at the end of each month we will evaluate how we did, what we learned and set the focus for the next month.
