July New Concept 2023
Somewhat recap for many who have forgotten.
This yr I’m aiming to thunk 5 samples/decants every week. Extra if attainable, there’s a tonne of them right here to be handled. Each thunk is known as a WIN, as a result of let’s face it who doesn’t want a couple of further wins? These are simple wins however hopefully will give us all a way of accomplishment that can carry over into each day life.
How It Works
- It doesn’t matter what measurement the pattern or decant it solely counts as ONE win.
- To depend as a win the decant MUST be thunked. Yeah, I do know however that is how I’m enjoying it. You’ll be able to have your individual guidelines if you happen to like.
- Multiples in a day are acceptable. So, if you happen to empty one thing within the morning, one other after work and one other earlier than mattress that counts as THREE wins.
- Producer Journey Measurement will not be a pattern or decant.
- On the finish of every efficiently accomplished month I’m allowed to reward myself with a splurge from ONE fragrance retailer. Yeah that’s proper. Positive you should buy 20 issues if it makes you cheerful however it must be ONE etailer or retailer in ONE TRANSACTION.
I’m going to have fun by freely giving a US$50 Present Voucher to Surrender To Chance for each profitable month to at least one fortunate random commenter. Cool eh?
