Three Minute Inspiration

In my Yahoo feed I came across a website called “Give it 100 days: Practice something for 100 days.”

Three minutes was all it took to inspire me to try something different.

Participants chose weight loss, ukulele playing, learning to dance, or sing. I’m sure this “practice something for 100 days,” could extend to writing what you’re grateful for in a journal, penning a rough draft for a novel, cooking, love letters. The ideas are endless. 

On Give It 100 Days, taking and posting a video everyday to their site is required, although you can do your new thing without a public video. If you’re very determined and extroverted you’ll post a video.

What I decided to do is learn to play the piano. (But no video). This idea fit right in with my intention word for 2014: Move.

I have an old Emerson piano that my daughter learned to play on several years ago. I found her old piano practice books ” Prep Course for the Young Beginner,” and flipped through the illustrated book for 5-10 year olds.

The keys now have taped letters “A,B,C,” on them to help me know where to place my hands. Looks a little tacky but who cares. I’m going start on page one of that young beginners book and give it a try-at least for 100 days.I may just learn a whole song or two.

But back to the three minute inspiration. This came after I viewed Lakiesha’s time lapsed video ” Losing Weight and Finding Love in Myself.” This young woman made a 100 day plan for her health and because she loves herself. 

Check it out.

Do you have a 100 day plan inside of you?

  1. (Hmm. This is my second attempt at leaving a comment. Please erase if I am doubling down.)

    I took piano lessons on and off since I was a kid. It’s one of my regrets — giving up. I don’t believe I have the musical genes.

    I like the idea of 100 Days. I struggled with the notion of New Year’s Resolutions, but maybe taking this approach will work for me. Thanks much for sharing!

    And best of luck on your piano practice. I hope you do an update at the end of your 100 days.

  4. Good luck with the piano! I’m pretty envious of those who have musical talents in spades, which happens to be mostly on my husband’s side. At least I get to listen to them…

  5. Ha, I don’t have any musical talent nor does anyone in my family (extended included). My daughter quit after a year. But I’m giving it a try anyway.
