I’m hopping on the 30 day challenge band wagon: here’s why…
Have you ever set a New Years resolution? How long did it last?
If you are like most people the answer would be less than six days!
I came across this great Ted Talk this week by Matt Cutts about the power of a thirty day challenge. It has convinced me to stop chasing only big goals, but also focus on the small details. (Running time 3:27)My favourite quote occurs at 3:01:
“The next 30 days are going to pass whether you like it or not, so why not think about something you have always wanted to try and give it a shot for the next 30 days?”
I must admit that I am the type of person that won’t attempt something that I consider to be insignificant. I have high expectations, which is a good thing. However I sometimes miss out on opportunities because they catch my attention or I consider them too small for me to spend my energy on.
The concept of a 30 day challenge has challenged my thinking on this, so I am going to give it a go. I’ll let you know how I go.
The secret to a successful 30 day challenge is found at 2:00 and 2:35
I would love to run a thirty day challenge with a group of students and witness the outcome. I have a suspicion that it would be spectacular.
What could you achieve if you just applied yourself for 30 days?
