The 100 days of A&S challenge

Safiya bint al-Shadhid’s system to track her 100 days challenge 

Baroness Ameline of Rowany has laid down a personal challenge, and invites the Kingdom to participate if they will:

“I propose a challenge. In the style of the armored combatant Century Drill (100 blows for 100 days), I am undertaking an A&S Century Drill: 10(+) minutes for 100 days.

Hopefully it will serve dual purposes – building habit & consistency, while also reducing UFOs (unfinished objects) and UFIs (unfulfilled ideas)! And hopefully also hijacking some post [Rowany] Festival enthusiasm. Will you join me?

Obviously 10 minutes is the minimum, and as far as what counts – you know it when you see it. Ie, purposeful research counts just as much as actual crafting – but procrasti-faffing on Pinterest does not. And as I am reminded, if you miss a day, your day count resets to zero. Pick your own start date.

I thought about a fb group or event, but I think this is actually what a hashtag does best: #100daysofAS – whether in a facebook community, or on your own page, if you post an update of your progress.”

Her Excellency’s challenge has inspired the Kingdom. People are participating with projects around food, embroidery, music, costuming & shield painting.

If you’re on facebook you can follow along with the hashtag OR if you’re not on facebook and still want to take up the challenge you can post to a blog or twitter or tumblr or other online space, and let us know by commenting on this post.
