Thank you, Matt Cutts

I’m realizing I never gave proper cred to my 30 posts in 30 days challenge.

You have to watch this TED Talk by Matt Cutts – Try Something New For 30 Days.

Go ahead, I’ll wait. It’s only 3 1/2 minutes.

Matt says,

“Think about something you’ve always wanted to add to your life and try it for the next 30 days. It turns out 30 days is just about the right amount of time to add a new habit”

And. BONUS. He learned that by doing 30 days challenges, the months stopped flying by in a blur and instead starting becoming much more memorable. He did one challenge where he took a picture every day and he could look at those pictures and remember exactly where he was and what he was doing when he took it.

And what’s even cooler is I went to look up his twitter to thank him for it. He actually did this talk in 6 years ago. And the first thing I see in his twitter feed?

6 years later and he’s still doing 30 day challenges.

That is amazing.

30 posts in 30 days

As soon as I watched this I immediately knew what my thing was that I wanted to add into my life.

I wanted to get back into writing.

And thus was born my 30 posts in 30 days challenge.
