Goodbye 2013!

Saying goodbye is never easy...but I'll be back soon!
Saying goodbye is never easy...but I'll be back soon!

Wait a second — 2014 is only a little over a week away??? Wow. That means that the 29-Day Giving Challenge ends this Friday! I don't know about you, but I've been loving this year's challenge even more than the past years'. The experience seems to become richer and even more powerful the more I do it — or maybe it's a cumulative experience, where I'm feeling the rewards of every giving challenge that I've done before. In any case, I hope that you're enjoying giving just as much as I am. Now, before I wrap up the blog for the year and head out for the holidays, I want to take a moment to recap the challenge giveaway requirements, just so we’re all on the same page.

  • If you haven’t already done so, make sure you share one of your gifts in the comments section of this blog by the end of the day on Friday, December 27th. You can do it at the bottom of any Challenge blog post (including this one), just make sure you get it in by the end of tomorrow evening.
  • Email a list of all of your gifts to by Friday, January 3rd. You don’t need to go into detail for this list — a brief summary of each gift will do just fine. If you have gifts of a very personal nature, just do your best to get the idea across.
  • To remain eligible to win any of the career coaching prizes, you must also submit a short paragraph detailing why you think you would benefit from them. Simply include this at the bottom of your gift list email.

That's it! Simple, right? So, during this last week, make sure the challenge doesn't get lost amongst all of the holiday excitement. Keep it up and "give" it all you got!

Additionally, I hope you take the time to really enjoy yourself as the year comes to an end, and that you’re able to reflect on everything that 2013 has brought you. Taking in everything that you've accomplished, and learning from what's still left to do, is such an invaluable part of getting ready for what's to come. With that, I’m signing off for the year and I’ll see you in January. Until then, have a wonderful holiday and a very Happy New Year!!
