Wake Up Now team leader Marian Gurowicz has come up with a novel way of help you unclutter your life…and earn CTP Experience Points in the process.
Called Freedom Day, it takes place this coming Saturday (June 28) and the aim is to allow you a dedicated 24 hours to complete all those niggling little tasks that you have always been meaning to do…but just can’t find the time to complete.
Marian puts it like this:
“I suggest that you make these all those short tasks that drain your energy and yet you never get to because all your bigger project keep getting in the way. You know the ones I mean, like cleaning out a closet or the junk drawer where you can never find what you need or organizing the files on your computer.
“For game day you may chose a few little projects, one medium project or part of a really large project – just make it something you can handle over the course of one day.
“Then, simply join our game on Spreecast at 9:30 AM ET for the first check-in and share the first item on your list that you’d like to tackle.
“We all share our projects very quickly as we get poised and ready for action. Then we hop off the call and get busy. We check back in together at the bottom of every hour, (or every other hour if you are on a roll and don’t want to break your stride), and share what we have accomplished.
“Be prepared for CHEERS from the crowd! It may sound corny, but it works, and it’s fun. “
TimTech is one of the main sponsors of the event and has come up with a series of prizes which should appeal to CTP Teams members who see the value of getting rid of the clutter from their lives.
Personally I don’t think there is a single person reading this who could not benefit from this kind of decluttering exercise. (For me I have been meaning to tackle my (growing) list of unread emails but have not found the time to do it. I have other unfinished tasks which are similar in nature but which doggedly remain unfinished and I am sure you can think of many too.)
So here are some examples of how you can gain XP for taking part in Freedom Day on Saturday:
- Posting To Do List Prior to start – 1,000 xp
- Checking in 4 times out of the 10 times – 2,500 xp
- Checking in 8 times out of the 10 times – an additonal 2,500 xp
- Completing a To Do List – 5,000 xp
There are other prizes on offer donated by Marian, Karen Kuty, Geri Gerstner from Jaguar Hits and Paul Caraway.
Marian is also looking for more sponsors for the event so if you would like to get involved then get in touch with her for more details. There is a contact page on her Freedom Day website.
