30-day Challenge

I discovered Steve Pavlina’s weblog by accident about one year ago and have been an avid reader of his articles ever since. I have been constantly striving to incorporate some of his tips into my own “workflow.”

Steve has recently published an article titled “30 Days to Success.” His idea is very simple: it is pretty difficult to commit oneself to drop a bad habit or to acquire a good one with no time horizon. Instead, he suggests having a “free trial” period for 30 days, which is much more achievable. After 30 days, the thinking goes, the new habit becomes a second nature, so it would be much easier to stick to it.

I am going to take Steve up for his challenge. For the next 30 days, I will go to bed no later than 12am and I will also work out no less than 3 times a week. I have been trying to stick to these rules since time immemorial and I never managed to last more than a couple of days. Let’s see how it will pan out now.

What will you succeed at in the next 30 days?
