GET IT STARTED CHALLENGE...

DAY #1

WHAT TICKS YOU OFF

What are the things that tick you off? Get you angry in the world needs to do something about this type of feeling?

Jot down anything and everything that comes up for you...

Use the workbook and brainstorm all the things that tick you off.

DAY #2

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?

On a similar note, what do you get excited about, what could you talk about for hours? What makes you more excited than a school girl meeting her K-Pop crush?

Write it all down...

When you are done, drop your favourite GIF in the group

DAY #3

THE MESSAGE

Why does the world need to hear your message now?

Sometimes, a TED talk isn't the subject matter that the speaker is known for. Sometimes it is an idea that needs to be released into the world.

What is your message? ( work-related or not)

And why does the world need to hear it?

DAY #4

HAVE CONVERSATIONS

Bonus homework... talk about your passions, Have conversations and listen, really listen to what others have to say. Read, watch, listen and play with your ideas.

  • Talk to your partner about it
  • Talk with it to your kids (subject matter age-appropriate)
  • Crack open a bottle of wine with the girls and dive in deep with it.
  • Bring it up in conversation over coffee with a friend.
  • Join groups with the subject matter as the prime focus and get chatting online or in person.
  • Put a call out in your community to get on zoom and have an hours chat.
  • Ask in the Wonder Moms group to see if there is anyone who wants to chat with you about your passion.

DAY #5

WHAT ACTIONS ARE YOU TAKING?

Are you walking your talk?

It's no good ranting about the overuse of plastic if you make no effort to cut use yourself or do anything more proactive to make things better.

If you are not actually taking action on your passion, brainstorm ideas on what you could be doing... If you are taking action, how can you take it up a notch?
