It’s been said that it takes at least 21 days to change a habit…or 30…or 90…or…
Do you have the “ I’ll-start-on-Monday syndrome?”
You know…whether it’s starting something or quitting something, you say:
“I’ll start on Monday.”
Then Monday comes, and for a whole 24 hours you attack that change with zealous energy.
Then Tuesday morning hits and it’s “I’ll just have a little piece of this cake”, or “I’ll exercise later today” or “I’ll check my analytics” or “I’ll get my year-end paperwork ready for the accountant” and poof! Like an unexpected breeze, the resolve is gone, and the old habit doesn’t get changed, and a new habit doesn’t get started.
As Matt says: “You can do anything for 30 days.”
You really can.
But only when and if you decide2do.
You see, when you think about it, talk about it, mull it over in your mind and dream about it, NOTHING HAPPENS until you take ACTION.
We all know it.
But we don’t all DO it.
So today, I’m issuing a 30 day challenge to all of you.
What will you DO THAT’S NEW or FOLD WHAT’S OLD for the next 30 days?
You can make your commitment in writing right here…today.
What is it that you’ve been talking about doing, but haven’t?
Today’s the day to make a change.
Will you take my challenge?
For the next 30 days, I commit to writing every single day on my “Ernest Hemingway writing retreat” book start that got sorely left in the dust when I returned home. I won’t say I “will” write. I say I DO write, every day.
What will you DO?
Today I start.
