Yoda once said, “Do or do not. There is no try. Only do.” Our nerdy selves can't help but notice-- that is one HECK of a call to action. And it got us thinking, what if we all channeled our wise, inner swamp alien and became as passionate about DOING as Yoda? The world would be a way better place.

So here’s where our Weekend Challenge comes in: CREATE A CALL TO ACTION! It can be as straightforward as “Floss More” or as intricate as “Save the Manatees!” No act is too big or too small!

Need inspiration? Check out this great example!

Hey there, my grateful gaggle,

I don't know about you, but I find list-making to be cathartic. It's good to see everything at once, whether it's the magnitude of your shopping list, or the pros and cons of your decision to move to the Faroe Islands (they're so beautiful, you guys).

This week's Challenge is to make a list of some or all of the things you're thankful for, using video. In just a minute, how will you represent your list?
