What can you do in 100 days? I wrote a letter/card/note a day as part of The 100 Day project. Here is what I learned:
1. It was challenging to keep up for different reasons (who to write, what to write)
2. Once you build a habit, it feels good as it helps carve out time in your day to dedicate to your 100 day project. So you can use this to help build a habit.
3. If you can do something for 100 days, why not keep doing it every day. Well in my case that may be a bit much to keep on writing letters/postcards, but say you wanted to do yoga. This may be a good challenge.
I didn’t have to write to 100 different people, in fact it started becoming a pen pal experience. After the first 30 people, I started repeating, and occasionally finding a new volunteer who wanted to receive a card in the mail. And after some time, I started receiving notes back. It was fun, like back in the ‘old’ days when the internet did not exist and people used to send real letters in the mail.
I invite you to a challenge to write a letter to someone. Maybe you’d like to write every day for a month. Or if that’s too much, maybe one a week, one a month. You choose. Surprise someone, and you may get a surprise back.
