$14.25 per day, or1.92 pounds per week, break it down!

Mortgage and Lending with SWBC Mortgage 410-960-2061 NMLS 196068

If you want to lose 100 pounds in a year, you only have to lose 1.92 pounds per week, or .27 pounds per day....now that doesn't seem so overwhelming does it? 

On Commission and want to earn $100,000 in 2011?  That's $1923.08 per week.  What do you need to do to make that happen?  2 houses per month?  1 loan a week?  3 photo jobs a week? 

Paying off debt?  How about a spending moratorium and putting just $20 more to the biggest debt? Have anything you can put on Craigslist or Ebay?  Any services you are paying for that are not making you money?  Cancel them and put the money toward your debt. 

Is you goal to clean out the junk from your home, break it down by room or by drawer.  If you do one drawer per day, how long till your whole house is clear of the junk?

I am participating in the Iron Girl Triathlon in 236 days. As you may have read, I am raising money for through the Team in Training for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I am required to raise at least $1600 for the charity to participate in the Training program.  I have been trying to figure out the best way to do that.  I not only have money to raise, I have a significant amount of weight to release (I don't want to say lose cause I don't want to find it again!)...I will break that goal down too!

I have $1425 to go to my minimum goal (I have set my goal higher).  I got an email about a 100 day challenge and thought what a great idea that is. Even though I have 236 days to the Tri, I want to get the fundraising part completed well before so I can really concentrate on my training (of course, I will be happy whenever I raise money for such a great cause!)  

For the first 100 days of 2011 I would like to get 100 people to sponsor each day at $14.25/day.  Of course you are welcome to donate more (Margaret Rome did! Thanks Margaret!).  Do you have someone you lost to cancer or know someone currently fighting you would like to honor between January 1st and April 10th?  For just $14.25 I will dedicate my blog and my training that day to them.  You can sign up for a specific day (their birthday, anniversary, your child's birthday or just pick a day (or a week) to sponsor.  I would like to get sponsors for each day of the 100 days.  I will send a reminder email just before your sponsored day so you can make your donation through my Team in Training web site.  Of course you can donate more or less than the $14.25, every dollar helps!  Will you help me to meet my goal?

As you set your goals for 2011 set them high and break them down into small pieces.  It won't be so overwhelming and you may be amazed at how much easier they are to accomplish.

I see you in 100 days!  Will you be completely overwhelmed with all you have to do or will you be 100 days closer to accomplishing that Big Fat Audacious Goal!   Let's get started.  Will you be one of my 100??
