50x50 Challenge #33: Accomplish 100 Micro Feats

Updated: Mar 29

Sometimes "go big or go home" isn't the right sort of mentality when it comes to fulfilling one's goals and ambitions. Sometimes you have to think "slowly and steady wins the race," because building up your accomplishments bit by bit has benefits that often lead to momentous outcomes.



Although I have some immense goals on my 50x50 list, I understand that these types of ambitious achievements don't happen overnight, but rather develop over time and through accomplishing smaller goals that snowball into something epic. Although most (if not all) of the micro feats below may seem unworthy of mentioning or tracking, I assure you they are not. If you're down, come up with your own list of micro feats you would like to tackle and see how they motivate you into continuing on a path of success and accomplishment! Here are the micro feats I have accomplished during my forties:
