Resolved...for only 30 days

I've said this before, but I love this time of the year--the beginning of the new year. I love setting goals and thinking about what I'll learn and experience and do in the coming year. I've been thinking about 2013, and I've got a feeling that 2013 is going to be epic.

I would even go so far as to say legen--wait for it--dary! (I just had to throw a HIMYM quote in.)



Unfortunately, I have this habit of making all these resolutions--like way too many resolutions.

Then, as the year progresses, I get overwhelmed and give up, and there goes most all my goals, out the window. I did pretty good on this goal, but kind of failed on this one. We just got too busy!

So this year, in order to prevent that discouraging failure, I am trying something a little different this year. I am only going to resolve to do something for 30 days.

Huh?

Watch this TED talk by Matt Cutts and you'll see what I'm talking about.


Yeah, I know. Doesn't that sound awesome? I can totally do something for 30 days.

My 30-Day Challenge for January will be to do yoga everyday for 30 days. I feel like I need the physical and mental benefits of yoga right now. (Don't worry, I'll also be taking some time in January to figure out a couple long-term goals I want to tackle in 2013.)

And in 30 days, I'll report back and tell you what the next thing I'm going to try. Anyone want to join me sometime for a 30-Day Challenge this year? I'd love a 30-Day Challenge buddy!

  2. LOVE this idea! Might take me 30 days to figure out how to incorporate it into a plan, but I really like it! Also, still planning to start War and Peace this year (maybe starting in June)--to be read in 30-day increments. :)
