As shared previously, I’ll be participating in Jon Acuff’s 30 Days of Hustle – a program (I kind of hate that word) designed to help us break through and accomplish a goal through habit-forming, accountability and a healthy sense of humor.
Day one of the program is simple – in theory. All you’re supposed to do is declare what you’re going to focus on for the next 30 (or 60) days. I’ve wrestled with what I’d like to choose for this effort – I’m eager to write a book, get into shape, make progress on a personal branding thing and doing some strategic planning/visioning for Apples & Arrows. But those aren’t my hustles for the next 30 days.
For the next 30 days, I’ll be working on increasing the quality and quantity of my speaking engagements.
I’ve arrived at this hustle for the following reasons:
- I think it directly relates to all of my potential ideas – if I make strides in this area, it will have a remarkably positive impact on the others.
- It’s something that I’m passionate about. There aren’t many things that fuel or excite me. Speaking does.
- I think it will be fun. The actual experience of speaking is fun – but I think the road to getting more opportunities will be also. It will involve writing, exploring possible topics, making videos and practicing my presentations. If I’m relatively excited about the daily activities, I know that I’m far more likely to complete them. Know thyself, and all that.
I’ll be updating and blogging here, so to follow my hustle, follow the blog. I’ll also be posting to Facebook and LinkedIn, so if that’s more your speed, that’s totally cool. I won’t be sharing every single post on those platforms – but I plan on posting videos, little quips and more as I progress through the next four weeks.
Here. We. Go.
