31 Days and 31 Ways to Get Busy Living

31 Days and 31 Ways to Get Busy Living

I officially declare June as Get Busy Livin’ month.

Since I started with my blog back in December of 2010 the tagline of “Get Busy Livin'” have really resonated with me and (obviously enough) impacted the direction that I take with this blog.  When I relaunched my blog with a defined direction back in February, I told you that I would never preach to you or tell you how to live your life, rather, that I would do my best to provide inspiration in the way of stories.  You are ultimately responsible for your life, and neither me, nor anyone else can tell you how to live it.  To get the most from life, you must make the decision to live it on your own, but I want to do everything in my power to positively influence you to achieve greatness with your life because I know you are capable of it.

For the past 3 months I have been kicking around ideas on content for this site.  The expectation level that I hold for myself is very high, so mediocre content just will not do.  I want my blog posts, my content, my stories, to impact people to make a change in their life.

Then it hit me.  Let’s just call it Epic.  Over the next 31 days, I will be posting 31 ways to Get Busy Livin’ your life.  In some cases, I will have stories to go along with these, in others, I will not.  Will all 31 ways work for you?  Probably not, but if even just 1 gets you thinking about doing something epic, then I have more than done my job.

The road of life is laid out in front of you. How you choose to traverse it is up to you.

Sure, this could end up being just 31 blog posts of me rambling behind a computer, but where the epic potential comes is from you. I want to hear from YOU.

If any of these inspire you to take action, I would love to hear about it.

If you are actively participating in any of these journeys, I would love to hear about it.

If you have any great ideas for ways to Get Busy Livin’, I would love to hear about it.
