Is 7 days enough time to create a lasting change? Well, I believe that 7 days of effort and dedication can create just enough space to change our perspective. A different perspective can enable us to create lasting change.
The tasks listed in the 7 day challenge may appear on the outset to be too simplistic. However, simple changes are often the catalyst for bigger ones. Students will need a notebook and writing utensil for this course. The notepad feature in a mobile device will also work.
Day 1- Make a list of the following things:
-Food, beverages, and/or restaurants which you have always wanted to try
-Skills that you wish to learn.
-Cultures and ethnic groups which you have always been curious about.
-Musical and dance genres which you are not familiar with.
-Groups/Organizations which you always wanted to join.
Day 2- Food/Beverage/Restaurant Day
Try a new food, beverage, and/or restaurant. Jot down what you tried and your thoughts about it.
Day 3-Music and Dance
Listen to an unfamiliar genre of music. You can listen to it online or attend a live show. In addition, learn some new dance steps. You can find informative dance step tutorials by surfing Youtube.com.
Research one of the skills which you want to learn by watching and reading tutorials.
Join a Meetup.com group and attend one of their functions.
Research a culture/ethnic group which you have always been curious about.
Review the past 6 days of activities and assess what worked and what didn't.
