Over the last few days, my time has been taken up by trying to get the 12for12K Challenge out of the starting blocks. When I first came up with the idea, I knew it was ambitious but I guess I didn’t realize how ambitious until getting down to the nitty gritty of pushing it. But it needs to be ambitious or what’s the point, right?
You’re always worried when you take on something like this that it will fall flat on its face – but that’s the risks you take when you want to effect change. But thanks to you, 12for12K is becoming less a dream and more a reality every day. The Facebook group is growing; the website is taking shape; and there are some fantastic people offering their services to help – and I truly want to thank you all for becoming involved so soon.
It’s just under three weeks to the main launch and the charities that will benefit are starting to take shape. This is just the beginning – I’m glad you’re here with me.
Which kind of leads me on to my next point. Because I’m looking at various angles to make 12for12K as successful as possible, I’m probably ignoring people I shouldn’t be. It’s not that I mean to, believe me – and if it feels that way, I’m sorry, truly. Obviously the charity is taking up a lot of my time, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to spend some with you either. You’re the people that inspired it and are making it happen, after all.
So all I ask is please be patient. I respect and cherish all the connections I’ve made over the last few months, and I look forward to making many more. I guess it’s like the old saying, “Normal service will be resumed shortly.”
In the meantime, keep sharing all that you do – it’s what keeps me going. Thanks, guys.
