A few days ago, I watched the TED presentation by Matt Cutts where he explains how he changed things in his life by trying out new things for thirty days. Towards the end of his presentation he also admits that it doesn’t always work, like when he tried to go thirty days without sugar. However, I think that the essence of his story might work for me. I usually set enormous goals for myself and then never start them, because I decide upfront that there’s no way I can achieve said goals.
So what am I going to do? For the next thirty days (starting tomorrow, Monday 26th), I’m going to spend at least two nights a week on improving my skills, instead of improving being a couch potato. Because my kid usually doesn’t sleep before 8pm, and I need to get some sleep as well, a night will consist of two to three hours. So, let’s see how it went on October, 26th!
