We’re here already? Hard to believe there are only two weeks left in the Challenge. Now is the time to actually complete, to finish all the way through to the end. Don’t quit now because you think you’ve already got all that you’ve came for.
At this point, it’s great to start looking back — to remind yourself of how it was for you pre-Challenge and back in week one. Think about the things that were really hard then that are now normal today. You’ve made some significant changes over these past six weeks.
The easy way out at this point is to just say, “I’ve got this…” and to stop paying attention, stop logging your score, stop being accountable. But that is the first step down the slippery slope to where you were when you started.
Take advantage of the next two weeks. To continue being conscious, accountable, and in the game.
