New Year’s resolutions are pretty typical. Health and fitness. Finances, relationships, and organization. Yada yada yada. Usually by this time, 95% of people have already broken their resolutions. But Kim and Jason Kotecki have come up with a plan that is not only going strong, it’s attracting people from all over the world to join them.

“Kim and I were fed up with the stresses of life. We call it Adultitis,” says Jason Kotecki, cartoonist and author. “So we came up with a 40-day plan to get us thinking and acting in a more childlike way.”

The couple calls their project The Escape Plan, and they created a blog to document their progress. Each day, they compete against each other in a series of challenges, such as “do something that is seen as inappropriate for someone of your age,” and “find a reason to celebrate and do something to celebrate it.” For the latter, Kim and Jason celebrated the year’s first Hump Day and Earth at Perihelion Day, respectively. Since they began, people from Wisconsin to Australia have joined in and have been posting their experiences.

“It’s been very exciting to see how other people are responding to the challenges,” said Kim, a former kindergarten teacher. “For us, this is about becoming more childlike, not childish. It’s about re-programming our grown-up selves to see life through a different lens.” For more information, please visit http://www.TheEscapePlanBlog.com
