My 36 for 36: July Update

by Scott on August 4, 2015

Summer Solstice Sunset

Summer Solstice Sunset

July has come and gone already and I thought it would be a good idea to take stock on how I’m doing with My 36 for 36 list and I wanted to share my progress with you in this blog post. I’ve only included the items that I have seen progress on so far. If I don’t mention an item, it’s because I have yet to see much, if any progress.

Here we go!

Interview 36 “Successful” People on the subject of “Success” & Start a Podcast and Produce 36 Podcasts

I decided to combine these 2 items that made my list because it just made perfect sense to do so. My friend, Karl MacPhee from Ripple Effect Strength & Conditioning and I will be launching a podcast later this year, which will attempt to define “success” through the personal stories of “successful” people from all walks of life.

So… if you know anyone who you would consider “successful” and you think we should interview them, please let us know!

Stay tuned for details!!

Write 36 Blog Posts – 13

This is blog post #14 here on and I’ve also written 16 posts over at That makes 30 within the first 45 days! I think 36 blog posts is very attainable.

Learn How to Practice Reiki to Treat Animals

In July, I spent a weekend taking training to become a certified Level I & Level II Reiki Practitioner. Although I can practice on humans, the intention all along was to be able to practice on animals.

I’ve spent some time practicing on Jax and it does seem to affect his behaviour and energy. I am looking forward to seeing the effect of long term practice on him.

Watch Everyone Else’s Favourite Movies

Without having a job to get in the way, I have been able to watch a ton of Netflix throughout July. I’ll be creating another post which will include the list of everyone else’s movies.

Encourage 9 People to Create Their Own List

Originally, I selected the 9 people just so I had a target to work towards. Myself and few others, started a Facebook Group for people who are making their own list. We called it ___ for ___; Your Best Year Yet.

The purpose of the group is to share ideas, updates and to have accountability partners celebrating all of your wins with you along the way. If you’re interested in creating your own list, and celebrating your Best Year Yet, send us a request to join the group by clicking here!

Develop My Lifetime Bucket List

This one was soooooo easy! Especially with our ___ for ___; Your Best Year Yet Group. Everytime I see someone post an item on their list, that I think is awesome, I add it to my Lifetime Bucket List. The best part about creating your Lifetime Bucket List, is that if you create another ____ for ____ list, you just copy and paste off of your Lifetime Bucket List – The Easy Button!

Watch a Sunrise and a Sunset in the Same Day

I wanted to make this one special so I watched a sunrise and sunset on the longest day of the year. Living in the far North, it’s very different than some of my friends who live in San Diego where the timing of a sunrise and sunset alters only slightly throughout the year.

In the summer, in Edmonton, the sunrise starts before 5:00am and the sunset can be after 11:00pm.

The Summer Solstice was beautiful!

Learn to Play Guitar

I’ve decided to use Rocksmith on Xbox to learn how to play guitar. I’ve only spent about 4 hours total so far so I still have a long way to go.

Let 9 People Know What They Mean to Me

I started this item, almost unintentionally. I received some news that my Aunt had experienced a minor health setback and I had a minor freak out! I texted her right away and asked her “what the hell happened.” After giving me the update and reassuring me that she was ok, in my own way, I told her that she needed to take care of herself because she means too much to me!

After spending the Memorial Day weekend with her and my Uncle, I’ve been very focused on staying connected with family, even when they live thousands of miles away from me.

Love you!!

Join a Mastermind Group

I suppose you could consider our ___ for ___; Your Best Year Yet Group as a Mastermind Group. However, when I decided on this item, the intention was to create a group of 5 – 7 like-minded individuals who were focused on accomplishing similar goals.

As I mentioned in the blog post: My 36 for 36: Honourable Mentions, another goal for me is to start an online business. I see this Mastermind Group as being an integral part of ensuring success with starting the online business.

There you go! That was my 36 for 36 July! What an incredible month! I’m excited to see what August has to offer!
