I have devised a new challenge for myself that I’ll be rolling out here on my blog, called my3*6*5…
I know there are variations of this out there, including Project 365, which I believe in so very strongly…But I had to create something that suited my needs and still provided a solid challenge that will keep me motivated to keep my two loves, writing and photography, a high priority in my life.
I will also be rolling out a variation of this with my advanced composition students that I will be teaching next year. Our goal is to get them started as early as June 1, which will coincide nicely with their graduation in about a year. More on their variation soon.
Here’s what I’m doing. Tell me what you think.
Every week, I need to complete a minimum of my3*6*5, which includes the following:
- 3–contacts to unique people previously not contacted during the my3*6*5 challenge
- 6–photos that capture my life
- 5–journal entries that chronicle my story.
By the end of these 365 days, I will have completed the following:
- 156–number of unique contacts
- 312–unique photos capturing my life on a daily basis
- 260–unique journal entries
This may sound a bit idealistic, which is why I made this a weekly thing and not a daily trip….I figure that, when the photos are laggin’, the pen will be mightier, and vice versa.
I will record everything here, beginning June 1.
So….what do all of you think? Care to join me?
