Create something new everyday

Let’s try something new here. Besides sounding cool, one of the main reasons I called this company New Territory is to present challenges and push people to enter new territory, something a little bit out of their comfort zone.

So in that spirit, I’m going to present weekly challenges. Something to try out, push your boundaries, change the default. Some will be less challenging than others. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. While I encourage you to try the challenge for the amount of time specified, if you feel like continuing feel free to keep going.

The first challenge: Create something new everyday this week.

It can be physical. It can be digital. Try to do something that isn’t already part of your norm.

For instance, if you’re an avid Tweeter, posting Tweets wouldn’t be a good expression of this challenge. But if you’re a frequent Instagram poster, sharing your thoughts in text on Twitter might be a good daily challenge. And the point is it can be something as simple as 140 characters (or 280 depending on your account). Or it can be something more complex (write a blog post, cook a meal, sketch, draw, etc). The point is to put something out into the world and get a 5-day streak.

I’ll be doing this challenges right along with you. For me, I’ll be posting a video everyday on YouTube. My biggest struggle is getting too tied up in quality. For this I’ll be focusing on quantity, not quality (to a certain degree. I still want the videos to be watchable????).

So if you’re not subscribed please go check out my YouTube channel.

What are your thoughts about this? Are you going to do this? What are you going to create? Do you think this is stupid? Share your comments below!
