I have been thinking, daydreaming, pontificating and procrastinating about this idea for too long now. So, instead of wasting anymore time trying to figure out the best way(s) to make this idea a reality, I am just going to kick start it by throwing some digital flotsam and jetsam on a virtual wall somewhere out there in cyberspace and see what, if anything, sticks.
Let’s call this idea the Catch Your Limit Challenge.
The Challenge parameters are simple: out of thousands of entries, let contributors pick their Top 100 to be published in some form or another. The Top 100 winning entries will each be awarded a FREE Official Catch Your Limit t-shirt for their contributions.
Small Print: Entrants must be breathing and potty trained to to be eligible to enter.
John Edwards has disqualified himself.
To loosely quote Thomas Edison: Rules? We have no rules around here, we are trying to get something done. The whole goal is to get your ideas, thoughts, stories, commentaries and take on ways that help you (and could help your fellow life-travelers) catch your limit.
Ideas could target in on life, love, play, work, relationships, whatever … no-holds-barred. Whatever your focus, focus on how you can get the most out of whatever you do. It’s that simple … or, that challenging.
So … no rules other than each and everyone is encouraged to get your head in the game, participate fully, passionately and ultimately weigh in on which ideas are the most meaningful to you.
Oh yeah, there is one exception, don’t take on the literal translation and share your tips, techniques and tricks on how to load the boat with fish. I already have my limit in the freezer from a great day on the Gulf. Take this to a higher plain, so that each of us can learn from you important ways to “catch your limit”.
The Catch Your Limit Challenge will either take on a life of its own, or slip-slide down a virtual wall and go poof. Let’s see if we can’t make a louder noise than that. Let’s see if we can’t make it sound more like the finale of a fireworks extravaganza on the Fourth of July.
If the Challenge catches on (no pun intended), we will create a site that allows for easy collection of your ideas, comments and votes for the Winning 100.
Enter as often as you like, just like what you enter and don’t bog us down with drivel. After all, this is a pretty tall order Challenge and if helping your fellow human kind is not incentive enough to give it your best … how about that free t-shirt?!
Take a look at our Credo and you’ll get a sense of what we stand for and why your thoughts on the subject of how to “catch your limit” will be valued and supported.
The people we touch find joy in being challenged, stimulated and encouraged to feel a part of and accountable for their mutual success.
Catch Your Limit is about people paying attention to people … about the power of good ideas that passionate, motivated, fully energized people can generate.
