You may remember that a while back, I posted about the idea of trying something new for a period of 30 days in Forming a New Habit. Well, today I came across this great little Ted Talk by Matt Cutts. It’s just 3 and a half minutes long but I really enjoyed it.
Here are some things you might like to try for just 30 days:
1. Stop watching TV
2. Keep a Gratitude Journal
3. Get up Early
4. Perform a Random Act of Kindness
5. Try a News Blackout
6. Learn a New Word
7. Take a Walk
8. Eat 5 pieces of Fruit/Veg
9. Bike to Work
After watching the talk, I hope you feel inspired to try something new and, as Matt says, something really different and even dramatic – something way out of your comfort zone.
When I tackled the ‘write 1000 words for 30 days’ trial, I can report that it certainly had the desired effect both on my blog traffic and on me personally – it is now firmly a habit and something I don’t feel I ever want to break.
