Given the year that it’s been, there’s a good chance you may have neglected a few New Year’s resolutions. There’s nothing like a global pandemic to disrupt the best laid plans. But never fear, there’s still plenty of time to get your bold achievement fix before 2020 comes to a close. In fact, if you set your mind to it, you can reach more than one major accomplishment by then. And what better way to say goodbye to 2020 than with something of which you can be truly proud!
As we enter the fall season, you have roughly three months to accomplish a bold achievement (and remember, as per Ed Kopko’s PROJECT BOLD LIFE: The Proven Formula to Take on Challenges and Achieve Happiness and Success, Achievement is an essential Pillar of a Bold Life!). This is more than enough time since this is the same amount of time it takes to acquire new habits. Recent discoveries about our brains prove this offers ample time to learn new behaviors and skills. Regardless of your age, you can make tremendous strides toward any goal thanks to your brain’s capacity for neuroplasticity. This is the process by which our brains develop new pathways to help us adapt and change. With that in mind, here are 10 major accomplishment ideas you might consider.
- Learn a Foreign Language – While you may not be perfectly fluent, three months is ample time to improve your foreign language skills. There are many different apps that make learning a new language easy and fun. By spending an hour a day, you’ll be amazed at your progress. And this bold achievement is definitely something you can continue to build upon.
- Meditate for 90 Days in a Row – Some may not consider this a major accomplishment, but meditating consecutively for a long period of time is powerful. By committing to this bold achievement, your life will change dramatically in a very positive way. The insights gained and the wellness enjoyed certainly make this endeavor a worthy one.
- Learn to Play a New Instrument – Some people are gifted in musical talents while others are not. But anyone can learn the basics of a new instrument within 3 months’ time. This bold achievement is something you can share with friends and family. What better time to show off this major accomplishment than around the holidays!
- Earn an Educational Certificate – With COVID forcing us to become more adept online, you may also consider taking a few virtual classes. Massive open online classes (MOOC) are readily available with many free of charge. And if you wish, you may even take certificate courses that will look great on your resume. This is a major accomplishment that’s easy to complete before year’s end.
- Organize a Community Charity Project – Giving back to your community is naturally a bold achievement that empowers all of us. Even with lockdowns and social distancing, organizing a community event or charitable drive is possible. With the right connections online, you can create an outreach in which others will gladly participate. And you’ll strengthen your community in the process.
- Learn to Brew Your Own Beer – Perhaps, this is not the major accomplishment you had in mind. But brewing your own beer is creative, technical, and fun. Choose to brew a classic style, or experiment with a fruit beer. Who knows? This might be your calling. Your bold achievement project might just turn into a lasting hobby or even career.
- Master a Dozen Gourmet Recipes – Whether you’re a great cook or not, you can always up your game. Therefore, one major accomplishment to consider would be mastering a few awesome recipes. Don’t simply try a recipe once and move. Actually, try to master several as your end-of-the-year bold achievement. Your friends and family will love you for it!
- Launch Your Own Business – In 3 months’ time, you can also launch your own business with the right level of commitment. Though it might be a major accomplishment, it can be done. Writing a business plan, getting permits and licensing, and arranging everything you need to open will be tight. But if you’re looking for a truly bold achievement, this would certainly be one.
- Learn a New Dance – All work and no play may not be for you. But learning a new dance as your major accomplishment over the next few months might be. Even though dance studios aren’t likely open during COVID, YouTube videos and a good partner can go a long way. And once the pandemic subsides, you’ll be ready to show off your bold achievement.
- Read a Book Every Week – Coming off the heels of summer, you may not have had time to kick back and relax. This may have been especially true if you were keeping children entertained. But now that school has resumed, you may find that you have a little more time. If so, reading a book every week or even month can be a bold achievement. Plus, there’s several books that are simply must-reads if looking for something inspirational.
Other Bold Achievement Notable Mentions
As you may have noticed, dieting and fitness pursuits were not included on this major accomplishment list. That doesn’t mean these shouldn’t be considered, however. Over the next 3 months, a number of bold achievement goals related to diet and fitness can be attained. If this is one of your top priorities, then they deserve your attention. But how you define them depends on what you consider truly bold.
Diet and fitness goals tend to be more specific to your current state of mind and level of fitness. For instance, you might want to run a 5K by year’s end, or you may want to have your best running time in a marathon. You may want to shed 10 pounds or 30. The way you define bold for yourself will determine the diet and fitness goals you pursue. But these types of major accomplishments might also be considered.
Basically, there are a variety of things you can pursue and achieve before 2020 comes to a close. There’s little doubt that this year will be one we will all remember for a long time to come. But why not make it memorable for the bold achievement you attained before the year ended? There’s no time like the present to turn things around and realize the boldest that you can be!
