To make the most of your trip through life, you need an idea of where you want to go.
The 30-Day Redirection Challenge will stop you from coasting through life and help you find a fresh sense of direction by filling the following blanks of your GPS (general personal strategy):
Making the most of my life means maximizing _______ and tackling the world’s problem with _______. To do so, I need to overcome_______, which I will start working toward by _______.– You, after completing the 30-Day Redirection Challenge
Yeah, it’s corny. But it’s way better than going with the flow.
Start Apr. 1
Q: How exactly will this challenge help you?
A: Find a fresh sense of direction.

The 30-Day Redirection Challenge will pull your head out of your butt to get you asking questions most people are too busy or scared to think about.
And it will push you to come up with answers that will get you off whatever well-trodden path you’re stuck on now (black-dotted line in diagram below) and onto slightly less complacent one (green-dotted line).
Q: What will you be challenged to do?
A: Think, consider, and respond.
Once a week, I’ll send you an email with one redirection-finding question and ask you to:
- Think: Spend at least 10 minutes a day of undistracted quality time contemplating your answer to the “big” question and the sub-questions that will accompany it.
- Consider: Read some of the supplemental material that might help you come up with your own answers.
- Respond: Write yourself (via me) an email with your best attempt at an answer.
WARNING: If you don’t write your emails within the leisurely weekly deadlines, I will boot you from the challenge immediately.
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 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 “What do I want from my life”-type questions.
Plus, thinking big-picture is boring. There are dozens of more exciting things you could be doing instead.
Q: Is the challenge guaranteed to work?
It’s a challenge. You’ll probably fail.
And even if you complete the 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, 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. If you carry on, you may eventually turn back and realize you’ve made a dramatic difference.
Q: Why’s it free?
A: To encourage you to experiment.
Look at the 30-Day Redirection Challenge as an experiment. If it works for you, great. If not, no skin off your back (or money from your wallet). You’ll learn either way.
It’s an experiment for me too. It’s my first time implementing these coaching strategies via email. So if for some reason it blows up in my face, I don’t want to have to deal with refunds. Plus, I’m not that desperate for your money.
This makes it a potentially sweet deal for you. The strategies from this course have worked wonders for people I’ve worked with in the past. And I’m going to be extra engaged and involved with you because it’s my first time running this challenge.
So it’s basically free coaching. Or, if the word “coaching” gives you the heebie-jeebies, a free outside perspective.
Q: What’s the catch?
A: Stop looking for excuses.
Do your future self a favor and give the 30-Day Redirection Challenge a try.
