#ygkChallenge: Help Someone Reach Their Goal

helping handWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Help someone realize a personal goal. For many of us, Summer is a fantastic time to kick back and relax, but it can also be an inspirational time where we dream of tackling new projects. Finding the time and harnessing the skills and creativity to get ‘r done can often be a daunting task. This is especially true when your personal goal is somewhat outside of your comfort zone. Knowing the right people to seek advice from is especially important if you want to make real progress towards success. Conversely, being able to lend a hand or guide someone through an exciting challenge can be equally as rewarding. Whether one of your friends is looking to do some renovations, make some healthy lifestyle changes or run for municipal office, remember the old adage that there’s strength in numbers.  Don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves and help out, even if it’s an area where you’re not totally an expert.  Your selfless act of helping someone else achieve their dream could teach you new skills and build stronger bonds between you and loved ones!

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines.
