Much of my own personal growth has revolved around 30-day challenges. A 30-day challenge is essentially a 30-day commitment to a new daily behavior that is outside of one’s normal comfort zone. The idea is that it takes roughly 28-30 days of daily ritual for your subconscious to adopt a new habit. This isn’t always the case, every habit will be different, sometimes it will take more than 30 days to install, sometimes less. But 30 seems to be a great benchmark for testing something out.
For example, if you want to change your eating habits, you might do a 30-day challenge of cutting out processed foods, wheat, meat, among other possibilities.
My most impactful 30-day challenge was the one that started this website, which was my 30-day rejection challenge. It was hard, uncomfortable, challenging beyond belief, and when I completed it I was a completely different person and will forever be changed for the better.
Much of this website will probably revolve around 30-day challenges I take on for a couple reasons. The first is I like to share what I’m up to and inspire others to embark on their own journeys of growth. The other reason is that by making my commitments public, it makes it much harder to quit. When I did the 30 day rejection challenge, I posted videos on my Facebook wall every day, because I knew that if I didn’t, the chances of me quitting, giving up, or talking myself out of it would be that much greater. The more people counting on you to fulfill on what you say, the more likely you’ll finish what you started.
