Google's Matt Cutts presents the idea of improving your life by making your own 30-day challenges. He proposes that adding and/or subtracting something in your life for at least 30 days can lead to a number of improvements. At the end of 30 days, make more changes.
Citing his own experience, he experienced a better quality of life and even got into better shape. Of course, that is dependent on what your 30-day challenge is.
Some examples you might consider are:
- Bike to work for 30 days
- Take a new photo every day
- Give up sweets
- Write a few pages of a story every day
