28: Andy and Michael – Supporting Others and Practicing a Skill

By May 18, 2015Podcasts
Reading Time: < 1 minute
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

We’ve just come off of a great week… taking the extra time each day to read reflections, comment on what others are doing, and support them simply by engaging.

I don’t know about you, but for me, it truly does make a difference. It makes it clear that we’re doing this in the context of others…  the idea that you are there, right along side of us, moving in the same direction, makes straying from the rules when the going gets tough something I have to really think twice about.

This week we’re on to the practice of working on a hobby or skill. This is so much fun & it can be literally anything… reading a book, practicing an instrument, working on your cooking or knife skills in the kitchen, or practicing handstands. Your only limit is your imagination.

Looking forward to hearing about all the great things you’re up to in reflections and in the Whole Life Challenge Facebook Group.
