Onetenzeroseven Challenge: One Hundred Yeses

100 Yeses,

When I completed my 100 Happy Days photo challenge I mentioned that I’d quite like to start my own challenge to fill the hole it left in my life!

I’ve been pondering this for a while and as I’m currently reading Yes Man by Danny Wallace (and when I was lucky enough to meet him at a book signing he challenged me himself!) it seemed the natural choice to challenge myself to say yes more. I do admit that I’m a little hermit; I find it easier to lock myself away at home, listening to music, watching awesome shows and working away until bedtime, but it’s not much to write home about when someone asks what you’ve been up to. It doesn’t get me outside of my comfort zone. It’s safe.

If you haven’t read the book, I feel for sure you’ve seen the film and on most days I am Carl before he takes the Yes Man challenge. I’ve gotten better at not avoiding offers to spend the evening out, but as it’s so easy to slip back into old habits I am challenging myself to 100 Yeses.

I thought about a ‘100 days of yes’ challenge, but I felt I was setting myself up to fail. What would happen if there were no invitations one day? How would I motivate myself to create a yes? So instead I’ve settled for yeses on any day, at any time until I reach 100. I could say yes to 3 things in a day, but then none for a week. Of course if I turn something down it will take longer to complete my challenge. I will be documenting my achievements here on my blog, but for up to date progress you can follow along on the hashtag #100Yeses on Twitter and even join in if you feel so inclined! I’d love the motivation of having friends to share the challenge with!

Will you be joining in? What challenges have you set yourself?

Loves x xx
