Good Will Wednesday – The Start

I have yet to build a habit related to giving generously. It has been difficult for me to reconcile the idea of coming off as a braggart versus using this blog as a way to focus my efforts when developing better habits. Ultimately, this blog is for personal development, and I know my intentions are pure.

Habit: Perform a Random Act of Kindness every day for 66 days

Start Date: Sunday, 10/16/2016

Projected End Date: Wednesday, 12/21/2016

Action Plan:

  • Volunteer at the RW Food Shelf
  • Read 2 books about philanthropy
  • Watch 3 TED Talks about philanthropy
  • Watch a documentary about philanthropy
  • Find online volunteer opportunities
  • Find volunteer opportunities in the RW art community
  • Find a volunteer opportunity with the Project Management Institute
  • Complete the Headspace Gratitude pack
  • Track my random acts of kindness on Twitter
  • Post weekly on Wednesdays about my progress

Incentive: If I complete a random act of kindness everyday for 66 days, I will celebrate by participating in a fun charity event.

Lofty Goal: Give generously

I’ll be building this habit throughout the holiday season. Focusing on acts of kindness and becoming more active in my community should only increase my holiday spirit!

  1. I enjoy helping sort food at the food pantry and volunteering in the class room for Junior Achievement (educating children on financial literacy). Two things I should do more frequently!

  2. Kudos, Cori! I’m just about to volunteer for serving meals to elderly people. I also help out at my local library. Keep up the good stuff! It pays back in ways you can’t imagine, no joke!
