In the TED talk above, Matt Cutts’ makes a case for taking things 30 days at a time. Taking some cues from Morgan Spurlock, Matt raises some good points and makes it clear that small changes can really end up changing your life. He also highlights that even if you don’t continue your project past the 30 day mark, you can be certain that you will have learned something from the experience. We all have ideas that pop into our heads, goals or mini-dreams that we put off because we just can’t conveniently fit them into our busy lives. What would happen if we actually realized these mini-dreams? Now’s your chance to test the theory. Thirty days are a lot easier to wrap your head around than 365, so why wait until next January to challenge yourself? July is just as good a month.
We are 192 days into 2011, which leaves 173 days until we ring in 2012. That equates to roughly 5 30-day blocks for you to experiment with. What do you want to try for 30 days?
