We are drowning in data—and we live like that data is knowledge. It’s like mistaking a firehose for a drinking fountain. Without taking time to pause and evaluate, we can only react to the onslaught. Survival instincts take over and we let emotions choose.
It’s uncommon in a fast paced world to regularly stop and honestly evaluate our choices and how they impacted our lives. Without honest reflection, it’s easy to break the promises we make to ourselves. Over time, broken promises can easily become the status quo. Results become far from random—they become predictable. You get the same ones over and over.
By reflecting back on how and whether your choices have served your interest you can make data and information into knowledge and wisdom. By giving yourself space to reflect on how what you are doing affects your results, you can quickly course-correct and home in on better choices. You start to see results that line up with how you imagine your life could be.
During the game, you will post a daily reflection in a public journal. This is where you can consider things like how the Challenge is going, what you have learned, and what you want to change.
Your daily Reflection is where you get real with yourself. You won’t always do what you say you’ll do, but acknowledging where you broke a promise to yourself and didn’t follow through allows you to close the circle and set a new intention.
