My 36 for 36: An Epic Failure

My 37 for 37: My Best Year Yet

My 37 for 37: My Best Year Yet

At the end of 2013, I had a friend give me an idea to create a 35 for 35 list. A list of 35 items to accomplish over the calendar year that I turned 35.

There were so many incredible stories that came from this experience. Just to name a few:

Last year, I had decided that I was NOT going to create another list. By the time June rolled around, I felt like something was missing. I felt that I needed that list of items to pursue. So I scrambled and created a new list, my 36 for 36 list.

I wasn’t working when I created the list. I had decided to leave my employer who I had worked with for the last 6+ years so I had plenty of time to focus on accomplishing things.

I had struck a line through a few items:

  • I bought a stranger’s meal in a restaurant – this was a lot of fun because of the situation that presented this opportunity. Read the story here.
  • Start a podcast and record 36 episodes – I am completely set up to start recording now. I anticipate recording a few episodes over the holiday break. Who is the most successful person you know personally?
  • Encourage 9 other people to start their own list – This was a lot of fun, to see others create their own list and start working towards their own exciting accomplishments.

But then something happened! I went back to work and my progress hit a brick wall. I began working 12+ hours a day (sometimes as much as 17 hours a day) and, on some weeks, I would work 7 days a week

I arrived home a few days ago for the Christmas break, completely burnt out. I look back and see My 36 for 36 as an epic failure minus one thing… The failure makes has created a deep desire to make My 37 for 37 an Epic Experience and the road map to “my best year yet.”
