100 Days…What Will You Do?


We are told that habits can be created in 21 days. In his book The Purpose Driven Life, Pastor Rick Warren states that even though it takes only 21 days to create a new habit, it takes another 21 days for the new habit to become ingrained in you. This is why there are so many 40-day events in the Holy Bible. U.S. presidents are measured by the amount of work they complete in their first 100 days in office that is called their honeymoon period. It is thought that by watching what they complete in the first 100 days, people will have a good indication of their character and integrity.

Since I challenged you to a 40-day journey in 2015, I want to challenge you to go on a 100-day journey with me this year. What do you want to conquer in the next 100 days? Lose 10 pounds? Exercise more? Try Meatless Mondays? Floss twice a day? Practice a new language? Be kinder to your neighbor? Learn a new dance?

What have you been wanting to do but have been putting off? Whatever it is, put aside the putting aside and commit, with me, to challenge yourself for the next 100 days. You can share your goal with me, or you can keep it secret. But whatever it is, we will start today. Are you with me?

If you are interested, here is a simple little chart that you can use to add a Y for yes or an N for no if you were successful in your goal each day. If you collect a few Ns along the way, don’t worry as change takes time. If you collect more Ns that Ys, you should ask yourself how important the goal is to you. If it is important, ask yourself what is stopping you from completing it each day. If it isn’t important, change to a goal that you can commit to and start again. Remember, it’s the journey, not the destination that is important. See you along the change path.
