Nerdlution? What kind of a word is that?
January 26, 2014
A good one, as it turns out.
Seems “Nerdlution” is a brainchild of the Nerdy Book Club, an amazing online community of kidlit advocates, and it’s a combination of “Nerd” and “Resolution.” As in, New Year’s Resolution.
Here’s how it works: Give yourself a goal, then give yourself 50 days to accomplish it. You don’t have to do your “thing” every day, but it helps to set a schedule.
I know – it seems so simple. That’s what I love about it.
I guess what it boils down to is this: why should January 1 be the only day of the year you decide to improve yourself? What’s wrong with June 5? or September 14? Or today, January 26?
I’m a perfect candidate for this nerdlution thing, because I’m a genius at avoiding the one thing I need to be doing: writing. So my nerdlution is to write at least 500 words a day, 5 days a week. Starting today. And these words don’t count, so I gotta go.
See you on the other side. #nerdlution
