Rules are dumb but have their place

Do-One-Thing-Every-Day-That-Scares-You

One week until the challenge commences. I guess I can check day one off because I’m scared to death about this shit idea I came up with for the following reasons: rats, being completely transparent, actually completing something I start, and above all perhaps finding something out about myself that would’ve been more comfortable left in the deep dark depths of a place I call denial.

Thought quite a bit about attaching rules or at the very least some stipulations to this 100 day event, but thought rules and stipulations are lame and will only put limitations on something that is supposed to be encouraging the exact opposite. So, in short, rules suck and have no place here.

I decided yesterday I am going on a road trip. Conveniently my running buddy said he would like to do the same. So we leave Sunday. Good way to start this challenge I think.

Destination: unknown. Length: undecided (will most likely depend on how my travel partner and I get along… or don’t). Purpose: to make bad decisions and meet some cool folk along the way. Oh, and do stuff that scares me every day as well.

We’ve compiled a bit of a list and some rules. I know I said I wasn’t going to make any rules for my 100 day challenge, but for a road trip, we thought it necessary to incorporate a few rules.

  1. no being a pussy
  2. no asking of directions or use of a GPS
  3. no phones
  4. no more than 6 hrs of sleep a night
  5. no “I’m too tired” bs
  6. no farting in the car

Suggestions welcome!

Good God I hope this Eleanor Roosevelt chick is onto something when she says to do one thing every day that scares you. Nonetheless I’m interested to see how it turns out…

What are you scared of??

See The awesome-ness of fear for what this challenge is all about…
