Your response was overwhelming (a big thank you is in order – I think I’ve got back to most of you by now but apologies if I missed someone!).

At the end of December I decided to challenge myself. I wanted to make January the most productive month of my life so far. To give myself a push I announced it publicly here on the blog, and many of you guys decided to join in. I was (and am) so happy to see that so many of you were willing to put yourself to the test too.
Now that a month has passed it’s time to look at how it all panned out. [Read more…] about A Month of Supercharged Doing: Aftermath
