Challenges Day 8

Challenge 1: Cold Shower Therapy

Still working hard at this one. I seem to be finding it not too difficult to maintain the rage. Once I get in the shower I am totally fired up for the day as well. Though as I near the end of the 30 days I am starting to wonder if I might not just keep it up for another 30 days.

Challenge 2: Spanish Vocabulary

Loving the learning of the Spanish. It is really starting to take hold in my brain. Though it will be a long while yet before I am having decent conversations. Looking forward to reviewing the material from the first course before then beginning on my Lean Spanish: The Fast and Fun Way textbook.

Challenge 3: Teeline Shorthand

Books arrived yesterday. Pretty happy! It is going to take me a fairly long time to get the hang of it I think, but I will just continue to persist. It will be such a useful skill going forward. It will essentially give me the ability to have a memory of every meeting, or presentation that I see. My aim is to get to about 100 wpm as I think at this speed I could comfortably record and participate in a conversation. I am also going to practice my typing, by typing straight from the Teeline outlines, as this will help with reading the Teeline and building my typing speed back up again.

Challenge 4: Lumosity Training

Brain is definitely starting to feel the benefits of the Lumosity training. I am definitely feeling a little sharper and my scores are definitely improving. Looking forward to the end of the month when I will display my graph on here.

Challenge 5: Journal

Got a little lost on the journal. Missed my weekly review and reflection that I wanted to add. I broke my rule of not missing 2 in a row for any of my challenges, but I just need to pick myself back up, jump on the bike and get back to speed. No wasting time feeling sorry for myself or lamenting my inability to do what I set out. I just need to keep moving forward and trying to get it right. It gets easier and more likely that I will achieve what I set out for each time I set out.

Days Remaining: 25
