Day 333: Semantics

Many people set goals, resolutions, or just don’t do anything. I, however, don’t like the words goal or resolution. Instead I like them to present what I think the idea behind them should be. This is why I like to use the word CHALLENGE. If something is so easy you don’t really have to try to do it, then what are you really accomplishing by doing it? If something is too difficult that you have almost no change of doing it, then you probably won’t. So instead the word challenge seems appropriate. It’s something that won’t be easy, but will be worth it at the end of the year. Now while this doesn’t seem like a huge change to move from resolution, goal, challenge, etc the idea that you are ready for a challenge seems to be a good mindset. It means you’re actually going to care about what you’re doing, and not just do something to do something. Therefore, I challenge you to consider setting some challenges for yourself this year, not resolutions, not goals, but challenges.
