30 Days…

Today – September 1, 2021 – I showed this video in all of my junior English classes. The students then had to complete a quick write about what they could try for 30 days. As a teacher and business leader, I believe that I should be willing to do the things that I ask my students and team to do. That said, I’m setting a timer for seven minutes, and here is my quick write! Enjoy!

For 30 Days…

  1. I could write every day and have a 50,000 word novel…wait I’ve done that several times! LOL Seriously though, NANOWRIMO is two months away so writers get ready!
  2. I could take a meaningful picture that will always remind me of something good. This is one of my favorite ideas from the video.
  3. I could blog for 30 days straight to grow my virtual presence.
  4. I could record daily Webisodes for my business to help grow my area of influence.
  5. I could do squats every day to help improve my health.
  6. I could make a point of reading at least one positive thing every day.
  7. I could make a point to give at least one sincere compliment every day.
  8. I could take time to read for a minimum of five minutes every day and hopefully finish at least three books this month.
  9. I could work smarter and not harder.
  10. I could create more works of art.
  11. I could drink at least 64 ounces of water each day.
  12. I could visualize my goals coming true.
  13. I could start learning a new language.
  14. I could be sure to eat at least three servings of fruits and vegetables each day (I’m working towards five).
  15. I could listen to an inspirational hotline/podcast.
  16. I could walk at least one mile per day.
  17. I could text a friend to check on them.
  18. I could keep a smile on my face and be positive.
  19. I could support local restaurants as opposed to chains (this would get costly).
  20. I could save $1 a day so that I had $30 (or I could do a bigger amount) extra at the end of the month.
  21. I could start streaming again.
  22. I could get more sleep and not just on the weekends.
  23. I could be more productive in the mornings so that I can relax at night.
  24. I could sing and dance like no one is watching!

Wow! You can get a lot out in a 7 minute quick write! I’m impressed by all of the options that I could do for 30 days! Obviously doing all 24 things from my quick write in one 30 day period isn’t going to work. However, I think that I can focus on a couple. For my physical health, I can do squats every day. For my hobby, I can read at least five minutes every day. Like Matt Cutts talked about in the video, the little thing each day can become a big thing!

Here’s my challenge to you:

  • Watch the video
  • Take 7 minutes to brainstorm ideas
  • Commit to one or two things to do for 30 days
  • Let me know how it goes

You can do this!
