JFJ Big Idea Challenge - Day 31: Challenge


What are some of our biggest challenges? How do we face and confront them?

Our lives are filled with challenges, some welcomed and others not. We might have challenges with our health, our emotions, our finances, our relationships, our work, our neighbors, and our environments. A flat tire when we’re running late is an annoying challenge. A spouse asking for a divorce is a life altering challenge. Moving to a new city for a new job can be an exciting challenge. We might struggle to get out of bed in the morning or make it to work on time. Or we might bring a new challenge on ourselves like picking up a new hobby, getting more exercise, or finding more time to make art. Life is full off big and little challenges. How do we rise up and meet them?

For the last day of the JFJ Big Idea Challenge, explore some of the challenges in your life. Maybe it’s about a minor challenge you deal with everyday, or maybe it’s a big, life altering challenge. Maybe it’s simple a reflection on the last 30 days and the Big Idea Challenge.


It’s been awesome seeing those posts, and remember that it’s ok if you didn't get to complete them all. So don’t feel like you need to catch up, but if you’re still working on them, don’t forget those hashtags. #jfjbigideas or #jfj16

Do you think you will make a worksheet of all 30 days of this challenge like you did for 15 for 30? I'd buy it.

Jennifer, I do plan on making a PowerPoint and PDF of this challenge like the 15 for 30, but I don't know when I'll have it available.

Awesome! My artistic accomplice & I are using the 15 for 30 to teach visual journals to our students and then doing a journal swap. It is really exciting to see how many artistic interpretations there are from these prompts.
