The Challenge

Wake up, work, gym, eat, sleep and repeat. Every day the same old thing. Days merging into weeks, weeks merging into months until one morning I woke up and decided this needs to change.

No more boring routine. No more just getting by. I want to LIVE!

To help me kick-start my new and improved life I chose 30 things I want to achieve by 31st December 2014 (starting from 1st August 2013).

These are things I’ve always wanted to do but have always had an excuse not to do it. Not any more!

I will be writing about my progress as I go so follow along. I’d love your support.
