Because comfort zones are boring...

Everyone’s got that thing.

Yes, even you. You know what I’m talking about. Your secret dream or idea. You haven’t yet started to make it a reality…but you can’t stop thinking about it.

Why haven’t you started yet? Any of these sound familiar? I don’t have time… It’s not well thought out… I don’t know how to start… I have no one to talk to about it… People will think it’s stupid… It’s too “big” for me to take on right now… It’s too late for me….

Sound like that voice in your head?

That voice is a villain. You as the hero of this story are going to defeat that villain. And you’re going to do so in a way that’s been tested with our #dothething community, people who were exactly in your shoes just a few months ago.

In this hands-on four-day challenge you will be lead through a set of exercises inspired by classic fiction writing techniques.

By the end of the challenge you will have completed a mini Hero's Journey where you will explore your ordinary world, discover the call of adventure,  identify the villain and get out of your comfort zone. And you'll know what your #thing is.  

You've waited long enough. You owe this to yourself.

Remember, if magic were going to happen in your comfort zone, it probably would have happened by now.

Let's go make that magic happen and #dothething – together.

 This challenge is based on the amazing book #do the thing written by Dona Sarkar. You don't need to buy the book for this challenge but it's a hell of a read. Get the book here
