The rules are simple.
Every couple of months, starting next week, I'll post a new 30-day challenge. You can participate any way you like – including using the online tracker or paper tracker here on 30GO30. I'm not here to judge you – do the challenge however it fits your life, and if you miss a day here and there (or decide to take weekends off), don't sweat it. I'll try to give each challenge a 6-8 week window, so that there's room for a few missteps.
This isn't reality TV.
I have to admit that I kind of admire people like or who go all out for their 30-day experiments, but this blog is about practical, day-to-day life changes. I want to hit the basics – exercise, diet, bad habits, good habits, learning new things, organizing, etc. I want you to participate.
I'll keep the challenges general. For example, I won't post a 30-day challenge like "Learn How to Scuba Dive," but I might post a challenge like "Pursue A New Hobby." I want this blog to be a learning experience – I want to hear what you're doing, how it's going, and where you're running into trouble.
I'll practice what I preach.
I will do my best to participate in every challenge, and if I fall short or screw it up, I'll admit it. Each week during a challenge, I'll post my own progress. I'll encourage you to talk about your progress in the comments of those updates.
So, let's get started.
Next week, I'll post the first 30-day challenge. Here's a hint – it's something we probably all should do after we spend an entire holiday season eating cookies.
