BE INSPIRED Reading Challenge

January 1 and March 31st, 2009 (Read)
April 1st and December 31st, 2009 (Action)

Jenn has done it again, she's come up with a new challenge. It's the BE INSPIRED Reading Challenge.

I, personally, am HUGELY guilty of being majorly inspired by a self-improvement book, but then never actually putting its principles into practice in my own life. So I’m never changed by it. I want to get out of that habit, and see these books actually HELP me, more than just increasing my *knowledge* of things. This challenge will hopefully push me to do just that!

The “Be Inspired” Reading Challenge asks you to:

* choose ONE self-improvement-type book (be it for weight-loss, finances, clutter-control, spirituality, or whatever), and read it between January 1 and March 31st, 2009.

* take one or more principles from the book that INSPIRED you to make a change, and actually APPLY it in your life bewteen April 1st and December 31st, 2009!

* Edited to add: You may have to go through a couple of books before you find one that truly inspires you, and that’s okay, too… but hopefully you can find one before the March 31st “deadline“!
