Motivation Mondays: Try Something New (For 30 Days)

It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of empowerment to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation is: Try Something New (For 30 Days!)

In this 3 minute TED talk video we see Google Engineer and Webmaster, Matt Cutts, give a most interesting talk on how “Trying Something New For 30 Days” can help you achieve all of the things that you have ever wanted in your life. Crazy, right? But, apparently not so.

And so, Matt Cutts did not only prove to his audience that he wasn’t crazy (such as biking to work everyday or completing a novel in 30 days), but has discovered that making the smallest changes in our habits can be the most rewarding when it comes to sustainability or consistency, which Cutts says, “It’s more likely to stick.”

We all have a childhood dream, no matter how old you are; that dream will always stick in your mind. But what often kills that dream is doing the opposite of what Cutts and Morgan Spurlock did: not trying it [furthermore not setting it for a fixed amount of time to do it like 30 days]. Although I can not tell you on what I want to do for the next 30 days (because I have been told by Derek Sivers not to), but this TED talk has really motivated me and everyone else to really take control of the time that we have and start setting goals for each month; and practically doing them.

 “The next 30 days are going to pass whether you like it or not, so why not think about something you have always wanted to try and give it a shot for the next 30 days?” –Matt Cutts

So whenever you see someone doing what you have been always wanting to do, don’t be envious of that person. If a senior citizen can complete everything on his or her bucket list within 30 days or less, why can’t you? Why not try it for 30 days? And don’t wait till the last minute of your life to do it. Not only will you enjoy it, but you will gain new confidence in yourself.
