One of the best ways to kick off the New Year is by starting a 30-day trial of a new daily habit or activity. Instead of creating a New Year’s Resolution that probably won’t stick, just commit to a short-term change. Make a January resolution only. If it doesn’t work out, you’re completely free to abandon it on January 31st, but for the first 30 days, use every ounce of resolve and self-discipline you can muster to stick to it, whatever it takes. At the end of the 30 days, you’ll be in a great position to decide whether you want to commit to a permanent change, having 30 days of success behind you.
Some actual results people have achieved with this approach include:
- quitting smoking
- becoming vegetarian or vegan
- launching a new online businesses and/or blog
- learning to invest
- getting out of debt
- starting a new exercise program
- waking up early
- going to bed early
- practicing daily meditation
- practicing a talent or skill like playing a musical instrument
- learning a new language
- improving computer skills
- improving social/dating skills
- learning to type faster and more accurately
- reading daily
- setting aside time for school work
- completing a thesis
- doing daily organizing and/or cleaning
- giving up TV
- giving up soda
- quitting coffee
- … and lots more
Some people have found that after testing a change for 30 days, they realized it wasn’t right for them, but they were glad to learn this from direct experience. Even when the 30-day trial ends with a return to old habits, the trial can still be beneficial. Usually people are grateful for what they learned, even if it doesn’t work out as expected.
I find that I do best when I take time to prepare for about a week in advance. I immerse myself in the new habit I want to install by reading about it, thinking about it, and imagining what it will be like. I hold myself back from starting until I feel a strong internal pressure to begin. This helps me make it through the first several days with high enthusiasm, which helps a lot since the first week.
When you subtract out the sleeping time, commuting time, working time, and time for things you have to do each and every day of your life, almost all people don’t have more than one or two hours each day to do what they like to do. And if they had the time, would they have the money to do it?
