Find a Fresh Sense of Direction

If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

– Yogi Berra

Eventually, everyone finds themselves going with the flow.

You go back and forth with your routine, career, relationships, and way of thinking about yourself until you’ve eroded a rut so deep you can’t see out of it. It feels familiar, safe, and easy enough. But you also wonder what else is out there.

The 30-Day Redirect Challenge forces you to break from this mindless momentum to start moving in a slightly better direction.

Where am I?

Fill Your “GPS”

The 30-Day Redirect Challenge exercises will guide you to fill the blanks of your GPS (general personal strategy):

I'm maximizing for _______. The external problem in my way is _______ and the internal one is _______. I will start working toward overcoming them by _______. 

Corny?

Kinda.

But it’s at least slightly better than your current trajectory.

About Your Redirect-or, Chris Blachut

Chris headshot

From corporate accountant to pretiree to start-up f(l)ounder to travel blogger to, now, full-time educator/coach, I’ve gained ample experience redirecting myself.

My curious combination of open-minded creativity and pragmatic analyticalness makes me adept at absorbing oodles of knowledge and experience and condensing it into fun-to-understand action steps.

It’s worked for me. It’s brought millions of readers to The Unconventional Route. And it’s what can help you figure out how to redirect yourself.

FAQ

Q: What will I be challenged to do?

A: Learn, consider, and commit.

Over the course of 30 days, you’ll get 13 emails with exercises to do at home.

They involve:

  • Learning: Consume some of the material—posts, videos, and podcasts—that can help you understand each of the four GPS blanks and spark ideas for your answer to each.
  • Considering: Spend quality undistracted time contemplating your answers to the “big” questions and accompanying smaller questions behind each GPS blank.
  • Committing: Write down your answers, email them to me to make them real, then act on them.

Q: What’s the plan?

A: One GPS blank per week.

30-day redirect calendar
Days differ depending on the month.

Here’s a quick timeline:

  • Days 1-2: Why are you doing this? Psychologically trick yourself into having a better shot at making your 30-Day Redirect a success.
  • Week 1: What are you optimizing for? (GPS Blank #1) Figure out what your measure is in the y-axis of the chart above.
  • Week 2: What’s your problem? (GPS Blank #2) Find a flame to put under your ass for motivation.
  • Week 3: What’s holding you back? (GPS Blank #3) Identify an internal handbrake that’s slowing you down.
  • Week 4: What’re you gonna start doing about it? (GPS Blank #4) Commit to a small change you can start making now that will make a huge difference down the line.

Q: What makes it challenging?

A: Lack of excitement.

“People waste years of their lives not being willing to waste hours of their lives.”

Michael Lewis

You probably won’t see or feel any immediate and obvious results from your efforts. If anything, you’ll feel uncomfortable thinking about pie-in-the-sky self-help-y questions.

Plus, thinking big picture is boring. There are dozens of more exciting things you could be doing instead.

Q: Why would I want to pay $99 for this email course?

A: For attention.

My attention: The $99 covers the time I spend reading and responding to the emails you’ll be sending as part of the exercises.

Your attention: And paying might incentivize you to give the challenge the effort and attention it needs for it to help you.

Q: What stops me from forwarding the 30-Day Redirect emails/package to others who didn’t pay?

A: Nothing.

Go ahead.

Note that I will only support the person who signed up and paid.

And I doubt anyone too cheap to invest in the Redirect will invest the time and effort required to get anything out of it.

Q: Is the challenge guaranteed to work?

A: No.

It’s a challenge. You’ll probably fail.

More likely, you’ll quit before you fail, just as the vast majority of people do in even way better online courses than this one.

And even if you complete the 30-Day Redirect Challenge, your life won’t be much different. You’ve probably worn such a deep rut going back and forth in your boring life that it’ll take a whole lot more time and effort than a 30-day challenge to extract yourself.

But it can be worth it.

As you’ll see in my own examples that I use to guide you, it helped me. And, as you can see in the testimonials at the bottom of this page, others who put in the work found it worthwhile, too.

So if you manage to complete the challenge there’s a chance that, in 30 days, you will look back and be grateful for what you started. And you’ll have a better idea of what you need to do next. Keep it up and you may eventually turn back and realize you’ve made a dramatic difference.

Or maybe you’re beyond salvaging.

In that case, the only guarantee I can give you is of the 100% money-back with no questions asked variety.

Q: What else can you do to convince me?

A: Stop stalling.

Do your future self a favor and give the 30-Day Redirection Challenge a try.
