A kid asked if I am just too bored during quarantine. I have daily blogs in both English and Chinese every single day. Taiwanese podcast episodes twice a week and English podcast on air every Sunday. It's crazy I have so much things to say. For this blog I set a 100 days blog challenge. I must write every single day for 100 days. Anything and everything related to music, singing, education or you kids. Everything you want to do, you don't have to do it forever, just set a "100 days challenge" and achieve it.
1. You learn to find time.
Everyone always said I don't have time for this and that. Wrong. You do. It's just a matter of priority. You learn to set priority well. Think about it, how much time you waste in a day on your phone or TV? You can always find time to do anything. Priority is the key. "Todoist" all is a very good tool that you can use daily.
2. You learn how to be persistent.
I am a very persistent person. If I said I will do something, I will do a detail plan straight away. Break down to small achievable task everyday. I use my habit share app all the time and make sure everyone knows my plan. So if you don't do it, everyone knows. If you want to do something, tell the world and you will have to do it. Sometimes your own willpower is just not enough.
3. You learn to be more aware of your own thoughts and observe the right "input" to your brain daily.
To produce all these "output" information on blogs and podcasts regularly, you will need to put a huge amount of "input" into your brain daily. Read the right books, watch useful youtube, learn new things and talk to smart inspirational people. You are also more aware of your own thinking and constantly think of a way to digest and share with others. That's an invaluable skill to have. Even if you only do it for 100 days.
4. Put yourself on the back when you achieve it.
I know I will complete these 100 days challenge and at the end of the journey I will pat myself on the back and feel really good about the whole thing. How many times in your life that you genuinely pat yourself on the shoulder? We create all these challenges constantly and imprint confidence in yourself continuously.
What do you have in mind that you always want to do kids? You don't have to do it forever.
Just do it for 100 days.
