Challenge Yourself

How often do you challenge yourself in your work? I mean, really push your limit?

There’s an annual challenge called 24 Hour Comic Day. The goal is to create a 24 page comic in 24 hours.

Your level of ability doesn’t matter. What matters is your willingness to commit to creating a full comic (as much as you can do) in the timeframe allotted. It can be challenging.

Want to get in on the action? Keep an eye out here for more information. It sounds like a lot of fun. Or you could just do it on your own.

Is this something you have to do? Not at all. But challenging yourself is always a good way to grow.

Push your limits. Find a new way to do something, or something that works better for you. Stuck in a personal trope (something you always do)? Do something new. Evaluate it, then work to get better at it.

You may be surprised at what you find.
