This 3-minute TED video sets the stage for my blog posts this week. Matt Cutts works for Google and has an intriguing 30-day challenge for you and me.
High points from the video:
- Try something new for 30 days.
- 30 days is just about the right amount of time to start a new habit.
- Instead of months flying by, the time was much more memorable.
- Self-confidence soared as the 30 day challenges became more challenging.
- You can do ANYTHING for 30 days.
- Small changes = sustainable results.
- Question: "What are you waiting for? I guarantee you, the next 30 days are going to pass whether you like it or not. Why not think about something you have always wanted to try and give it a shot … for the next 30 days."
MY 30-DAY CHALLENGE
I will write more about this tomorrow, but my 30-day challenge is to notice and record the "magic" moments of life. My wife does a marvelous job of recording our life using the philosophy behind Project 365. She takes a picture each day and writes a short blurb about the picture. She has been doing this for over a year now and it is a great way to remember our life. This is highly recommended.
Recording "magic" moments is about finding the small, magical times in life that we experience but rarely record. I will explain the process and, hopefully, compel you to try this 30-day experiment with me tomorrow.
QUESTION: What have you been putting off that could be the object of a 30-day challenge? Please leave comments below.
