Simon Parker’s goal is to cycle 1000 miles in a year, and lose the weight he put on after giving up smoking. This is the story of how he is achieving his health and fitness goal, making him the second winner of Experian’s #100DaysUseIt competition.
Experian are spending 100 days following the fortunes of three people with hopes of achieving their dreams this year. First we met singer-songwriter Emma Ballantine, now we’d like to introduce Alan O’Sullivan.
Alan gave up his job to pursue his lifelong dream of writing his first novel, and this is his story. I spoke to him to find out more about his 100 days challenge and what’s been the driving force behind it.
Did you know that as of tomorrow (23 Sep) there will be only 100 days left in 2014? What would you like to have achieved by the end of the year?
In fact, 30% of people who’ve changed jobs in the past three years did it in September, with more people retraining (53%) or taking up a new hobby (22%) in this month than at any time in the year. It’s also the second most common month for starting a relationship, buying a new car, and starting saving money.
