#PersonalProgressChallenge Week Five: A Pursuit of Knowledge

If you’ve been feeling slightly discouraged the past few weeks, don’t be! It can get difficult when you’re working on multiple long experiences, but this week you’ll be completing SEVEN experiences, six from the value of Knowledge. We’re also 1/3 of the way through with the entire challenge!

Hopefully this week will help jumpstart the excitement as you pursue knowledge. While all the Knowledge experiences can be completed in just a day, they are more labor intense than some, so don’t get stressed out if you can’t do it all in a week.

#PersonalProgressChallenge Week Three: Fulfilling My Mission

We’ve reached week three, which means we should all have the hang of it now, right? I know I’ve fallen behind on a few things, but I’m still trying my best—and luckily I’m ahead in a couple other areas, so I can spend those weeks catching up! This week I discovered HashAtIt.com which shows posts across social networks with the same hashtag, and so I decided to use it to keep an eye out for the #PersonalProgressChallenge hashtag. I’ve installed the hashtag widget at the bottom of the website so I can keep track, especially since I’m not an Instagram user.
