Those of you have known me for a while know that I like to tackle personal challenges in addition to my business endeavors.
In January, I went without complaining all month.
In February, I attempted the 8:00 mile which was a two minute improvement to my initial mile test.
In March, I did 31 days of sharp clean eating and ended up losing 8 pounds.
This month, I am tackling the Spanish language with a goal of studying over 30 hours. Why Spanish?
- I am from Laredo, TX where not knowing Spanish was not only embarrassing, but also kept me from meeting and knowing so many good people.
- There have been too many times in my life where knowing Spanish would have made life a lot easier. Cleaners, mowers, workers, etc
- I’m mostly tired, of putting this one off for so long of a period of time
Like my other challenges, the goal is mostly to kick start a habit than anything else. Already in a few days of starting the challenge, I’ve found that I was making the simplest of errors for years!
In 30 days of straight studying in Spanish, my goal is to aim to continually improve to a point where I can speak simply, but with correct grammar.
I am also hoping to continue my learnings post this challenge to evolve into reading books, listening to songs (and know what they mean), as well as watch movies.
I know that’s more than can be accomplished in 30 days, so this challenge is really a kickstart into the right habits.
