My 1,000 challenge was taken up by people as far away as Australia. One group of 50 people in Florida, headed up by Master Turnbull, did 28,783 pushups, 39,884 crunches, 45,380 punches, 40,800 squats, 6,000 kicks, 2,200 step-ups, 300 jumping jacks and 400 weight lifts. That's a lot, no matter how you break it down.
But what is really impressive is the potential of this collective effort. If a dime had been collected for each of the pushups, crunches, squats and punches, $25,799 could have been collected and donated to a charity. That's just what 50 people in one day could have raised.
Collective effort - eating the elephant one bite at a time - can make a huge impact on any targeted project.
What collective effort will you create or join this year?
