This week’s Fierce resource was originally published by Ted.com and explores how trying something new for 30 days can lead to achieving your most ambitious goals.
The idea behind it is simple. If you really want to achieve a new goal you have set for yourself, try it for 30 days and measure the results. One of the issues with ambitious goals is that we never seem to get the ball rolling because the task at hand is so daunting. We start to form questions in our heads like: Where do I begin? How can I really accomplish this with my schedule? It is easy to populate our minds with these thoughts and put off our goals for yet another year.
If your 2016 goal is to get healthier but you cannot commit to a routine, take the 30 day challenge. You can do anything for 30 days, right? Try biking or walking to work and you will be amazed by how much you can accomplish in such a short time. If you want to be more engaging with co-workers, set aside a little time every day for a personal conversation with someone you are out of touch with. You can accomplish a lot in 30 days, but it is up to you to challenge yourself.
