I know I have a non-linear brain and I know that although I love many challenges, the ones that come with a feeling of “you have to” seem to not work with me…especially if it is a challenge that lasts for more than a week or two.
Clearly “you have to” is part of MY brain’s messaging center, not the rules of any challenge I have entered. But – I have come to recognize that my brain sees a challenge as a MUST DO and reacts by saying “nope – you won’t.”
Having finally figured out this possible "key_to_my_brain", I am trying a new mind game with my brain starting today.
I will not “officially” enter any challenges that last longer than 2 weeks.
I will just “do” challenges as if they were optional fun events.
I will not keep track of what I do regarding the challenge.
A one-person research project is now underway. Results to be posted at a future time. [see? no set date]
You are never too old to figure out how your own brain works…
