If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I have tried a number of 100 Day challenges: A Happy Days in 2015 and 2016 and I have just started a writing challenge recently.
I am a visual person, love colour and colouring in! I tend to keep track of things in a visual way using lots of colour if I can. I also like to see my progress all in one place. If you look on Pinterest or Instagram (#habittracker), tracking habits and other projects is a huge trend at the moment using Bullet Journals. Just have a look at the links and you’ll see what I mean!
Whilst I do some of this in my own journal, I also like to have a single piece of paper that I can stick up on a wall, that I can see every day, to keep me motivated and more importantly, focussed. I adapted one for my teenage son to do one to keep a track of the number of exams he has to write before he leaves school.
Cue my challenge trackers
These are designed specifically for 100-day type projects. There are places to both colour in and track the passing of the days. I adapted an idea from a woman who created a colourful tracker for every $100 of debt that she cleared. Amy Jones used her creativity to pay off a massive $26,000 debt over a number of years. She called it a creative project of a visual representation of her debt. She decided that each swirl on the canvas would represent $100 and every time she paid off $100, she coloured in a swirl. She coloured in 260 of them!
Tracking your own 100-day project
If you want to do a challenge like this, use one of these creative trackers to mark your progress. If you love to colour in and tick things off, these are for you! You can print them off yourself (on paper, colourful card or scrapbooking paper) and get going! I have the following trackers available for sale at the moment:
- 100 Happy Day Trackers: Includes a PDF with 5 different trackers (£2.50/US$3.23)
- 100 Days of Writing Trackers: Includes a PDF with 3 different trackers (£1.75/US$2.26)
If you are thinking of doing another type of challenge and would like to track it, let me know and I’ll see if I can create a tracker for it.
