I had a post prepared for today about challenge, but it fits better closer to New Year (and points to a resource I haven’t quite finished making yet). So I’m going to look back on 2010 today instead.
At the beginning of 2010 I put together a few courses, including 7 Steps to Effective Personal Change and my self-hypnosis course AIM Your Mind. During the year, I asked my mailing list members what would be useful to them, and that resulted in Simple Stress Management Techniques and Stop Procrastinating, Start Succeeding. All going well, this week I’m aiming to finish my stop-smoking course (in time for the local tax hike at the New Year, which is likely to get more people looking for resources to quit smoking).
Creating these courses is a lot of work, but I enjoy it, and I’m always delighted when someone who’s taking one emails me and tells me that they’re enjoying it too.
There’ll be more courses in the New Year. I’m taking suggestions for topics (contact me if you have one).
The second half of 2010 was a huge time for guest posts for me – I averaged about one a week. It’s working out well in terms of contact with other bloggers and the people who read their blogs, so I plan to continue next year. Here are 5 posts with 5 tips each from a variety of blogs:
- 5 Crappy Ways to Deal with Stress at Fatwallet was one of a number of posts on stress in the lead-up to the launch of Simple Stress Management Techniques. It covered some of the common approaches that make a stress situation worse.
- At The Change Blog, I wrote about 5 Skills to Improve Your Coping Ability (otherwise known as self-efficacy).
- The wonderful Steven Aitchison of Change Your Thoughts hosted 5 Techniques to Clarify Your Dreams and Goals.
- Just recently on Life Optimizer, I presented 5 Things that are Better than a Plan.
- And last week’s post on Goal Setting Guide, How to Set Yourself a Challenge, presents 5 steps to triumphing in your personal challenges.
(Apologies to early readers, I accidentally published this post instead of saving it as a draft. I’ll continue the post tomorrow with my favourite posts published here and my top recommended resources.)
