Things fall through the cracks because well intended people get busy and commit to more than is possible. That was the nugget I learned two weeks ago when I pulled the verb, Slip, as my... Read More »
DO52: Let’s Get Started!
At the very minimum, DO52™ can serve as the gateway to a year of adventure and, when fully engaged with, this tool can be the catalyst for a year of transformation.
Today marks the first week of my fourth year of participating.
Sunday evenings I randomly draw a stick from the set of 52 verbs and then I invite that verb into my week. For the next seven days I think about it, listen to it, try it on, and generally look for any ways that the week's verb may be sending messages about how I may shine a little brighter.
The indirect, yet personal, nature of the insights provided makes DO52™ arguably more powerful than attending a counseling session or reading a battery of self-help books. The reason is because, deep down inside most of us already know what we need in order to be our best.
We already know when our relationships are out of whack, when we need to step outside our comfort zones, when we've let our actions get our of alignment with our values, when we need to loosen up or toughen up. We already know.
The issue isn't do we know, the issue is what do we do about it?
DO52™, by virtue of it's very name, is focused on getting you to take action. One verb a week, inviting you to do what, deep down inside, you already know you need in order to shine a little brighter.
Each year brings with it a new edition of sticks. Fifty-two intentionally chosen verbs, involving hundreds of people in the process and happening over the course of months. Each week brings with it a new surprise. My randomly selected verb this week is: ACT.
On most Mondays I will share the story of my weekly verb; how I interpreted it, what it prompted me to do, or how the experience led to some sort of aha moment.
In the meantime, I will use this week's seemingly fated verb to invite you to act. If you don't already have a set and want to participate along with us then visit our store and order your set of sticks today.
If you already have your set then make sure you act by joining our DO52 Facebook page and sharing some of your adventures with the rest of our community. We will have fun activity (and giveaways) going on throughout the year and you won't want to miss it.
Here's to 2015, a year of being, doing, and sharing your very best!
