When I first started this blog, one of the things I did was try a concept called the 30-Day Habit Experiment.
Today I’d like to talk about this concept; why I initially failed with it; and how it’s now helping me get incredible results with my Internet lifestyle.
Introducing the 30-Day Habit Experiment (30DHE)
The 30-Day Habit Experiment (30DHE) is a popular concept in personal development. The idea is simple. You “test drive” a habit for a month and see if it sticks.
We all want to live better lives. Lose weight. Quit smoking. Make more friends. Get that promotion. Find that special someone. These are all goals people make for themselves. But they often fail because it’s hard to make a permanent change to their behavior.
The reason people fail is because ‘forever’ seems like, well…FOREVER. If you wanted to quit smoking, it’s really hard to say you’ll never have another cigarette.
With the 30DHE, you don’t talk about forever. Instead you make the promise to develop (or change) a habit for only a month. That’s it. After the month is over, you evaluate this habit and decide if you want to keep doing it.
