Matt Cutts was “stuck in a rut” with his life so he took the advice of a fairly modern American philosopher – Morgan Spurlock – which was to, “do something new for 30 days”.
So he thought of doing something straightforward that he has always wanted to try and add it to his life but for just 30 days. 30 Days full of challenges – to change his life in some way. He tried adding and subtracting things to make his days more memorable. Like biking to work, taking a picture everyday and even writing a novel!
He said no to TV, sugar and things like caffeine. What he learnt was that his time was much more memorable and as he started to do more his self-confidence grew. He hiked up Mount Kilimanjaro and figured out that he could actually write that book he had been yearning to do, which he did but hardly without any sleep, however he managed it.
He now categorizes himself as a novelist. But he makes small challenges stick as big challenges take more time.
The next 30 days are going to pass whether you like it or not so why not try some new things within those days and give it a go – you may change your life!!
