A few months ago, I decided to make a commitment to myself to start a new 30 day challenge every 30 days to begin tackling my goals. My first 30 day challenge of blogging every day was really successful.
My second 30 day challenge was a bit of a bust. Partly because I lost track of what my 30 day challenge was (I tried to do two at once) and also because I got a bit lazy. The two 30 day challenges I was trying to implement was to start watching a TED Talk every day and to meditate for 20 minutes each day.
I’ve realized that in order to make a 30 day challenge work, you really need to focus on one new habit. So, my one habit that I’m going to be working on for the next 28 days (I started two days ago) is to bring back writing “Morning Pages” which are part of the Artist’s Way Course. I’ve talked about the Artist’s way a lot in my posts because it has been one of the most valuable personal development activities I’ve ever done.
In terms of my failed 30 day challenges (TED Talks and Daily Meditation), I’m going to still work on making these regular habits but I’m going try to bring them back one at at time starting next month.
