Finding motivation to set and reach goals -
one month at a time.

The Mandate

Take any one interest and focus on it for one month with the goal of having gained a skill or produced a product at the end of the month.

The Rules

  • Each project will begin on the 1st of the month
  • Each project will have a specific goal in mind
  • The goal should be completed in 28 days.
  • Any remaining time in the month will be used as a retrospective and for planning the next monthly mandate.
  • At least 1 hour each day should be spent working on the project.
  • A blog post per day will be written describing what was done the day before and what is planned for the current day.
  • Each week a set of tasks will be chosen to be accomplished that week.
  • A budget of $75 will be allocated for each project.
