ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Accepted And My Personal Thoughts

Unless you live under a social media bridge, you’ve certainly heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This challenge has taken off like a rocket and could end up being the best thing (hope) to date for those dealing with this devastating, deadly and incurable disease.

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease doesn’t get a lot of media coverage, until now, and it really hasn’t been researched in a big way; with only 30,000 Americans infected at any given time, there’s simply no financial incentive for large research and mega-pharma companies to invest big money into. As sad as that sounds, it is way it is.

2 Miles A Day – 30 Day Challenge – December [2013]

It’s tough to believe that another month has flown by again but it’s the first day of December which means it’s time for a new monthly challenge.

So this month I’m going to start walking.

750 Words A Day – November 30 Day Challenge [2013]

Back in June I decided a monthly challenge was just what the doctor ordered. That first challenge? Get More Sleep! So in July, I made a commitment to sleep no less than 7 hours each night for the entire month. It truly was a challenge but a very satisfying one.

UPDATE – Day Ten: 844 people signed up for the challenge and I’m one of the 630 people still in.

This Month’s Challenge

The 30 day challenges continued with listening to every one of Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income Podcasts in August, Avoiding all negative people and communication in September, and October is to lose fifteen pounds. That leads us into my next challenge; for November 2013. I wanted to do something this month that would help me move forward with my blogging business so what better than content creation? More precisely, writing content.
