Today is Day 100 of the 100 Day Challenge and it is time to celebrate. 100 Days is a very long time. To stay committed to something for that long takes real dedication. It means you have to keep showing up, even if it at a point where you would normally give up. As one of the challengers put it “you just have to keep going and the answers will come.” It’s true – with any challenge in life, if you keep putting one foot in front of the other, the answers, support, the finish line will eventually reveal itself.
This year my challenge was playing with social media. This was an excellent challenge for me – it forced me to learn about technology (which I don’t particularly like to do), it made me think about how I can use social media to share my message and it gave me opportunities to connect with new people. In the last 100 days I learned how to organize groups on Facebook, how to schedule posts for days when I wasn’t at my computer, how to pin something to the top of my page, upload videos, create photo albums, create personalized pictures to post on my page and I posted about all kinds of things that were happening in my life and business. I learned how to create a Pinterest account, set up boards, pin pictures, repin pictures, follow people and create visually appealing boards to look at. On Linked in I learned how to maximize my profile, improve my “searchability” change my privacy settings, update my experience and create better connections with my connections!
I also took a three day video course and a half day Social Media for marketing course. As I type all of this now, I am reeling a bit from everything that I did and learned. 100 days can add up to something pretty significant.
And that is one of the main purposes of the 100 Day Challenge. Taking small steps every day, consistently for 100 days in a row will add up to big changes. How did you do? What did you learn about yourself? What is next for you as you complete your challenge today? I’d love to hear from you!
