This is a philosophy I live by.
I take a goal I want to achieve, craft it into a fun, boundary-pushing project and push myself to finish it over some set interval of time. It’s led to some pretty awesome achievements (emotional resilience development, becoming a technologist, solo-backpacking 30+ countries, becoming fit, giving a TEDx talk) but most importantly, it's given me a framework that makes goal achievement actually fun and easy.
If you like this theory and are interested in learning how to apply it to your life to achieve certain goals, I'm in the midst of writing a piece on that - available here. Otherwise, below are some of the projects & challenges I’ve worked on. Enjoy!
