Inspirada by TED: Life Change in 30 Days

Share this:



Recently, I made public my love for TED. Some who read that confession probably thought that what I professed as love was rather infatuation. However, I am happy to report that my love for TED is evolving. I continue to watch more TED Talks. The other day I watched one that is perfect for this time of the year when many of us start thinking about our possible New Year’s resolutions: lose weight, exercise every day, walk the dog every day, go to the gym, save money, finish a long overdue project, and so on. Although resolutions seem definite, most lack specificity. For example, ask yourself: “How long am I going to be doing that activity that I haven’t been able to do for some time?” In one TED Talk, Matt Cutts suggests something simple and clever: “Try it for 30 days.” If you want to lose weight, instead of setting an unreasonable goal of losing “x” number of pounds a month, set the goal of eliminating sugary drinks or juice for 30 days. Also, if you haven’t done something you enjoy, try it for 30 days. I’m not waiting for 2012 to try something  for 30 days.

What about you, what would you try for 30 days?
