Here’s Your Challenge

Alright, Here is you Challenge. Right now I want you to set your timer on your phone for 60 minutes. Now quickly go through this list and tackle each item. I bet it won’t even take you one hour, but you might find a few extra things to toss in the bin along the way.

If you can’t do it right now, and no finishing your Netflix episode is not a valid excuse there is a pause button, plus it’s good to get up after you’ve been sitting for awhile….but IF you really can’t do it right now then right now write down a date a time you are going to do it.

If you put it off it only becomes a bigger job. So why not just tackle this short list today, you’ll be stoked with yourself afterwards!

Happy Tossing!
