Trying something new for 30 days:

I first watched this TED talk about a year ago, and I thought it was brilliant, but failed to take any action. I’m feeling very fortunate to have stumbled upon it again, because its the type of thing I mentally tell myself to try, but often never actually do. Well, this time is different:

I’m new to this, so I’m going to start out small. This is sort of embarrassing, but for most of my life I’ve been a once-a-day teeth brusher. The advice of every dentist, pamphlet, or online resource on dental care that I’ve read is to brush teeth two or more times per day, but I only brush my teeth before going to bed every night. So for the next 30 days (and hopefully beyond), I’ll be brushing my teeth when I get up in the morning and before I go to bed at night. 

It sounds like a simple thing, but I’m having visions of thousands of dollars in dental bills saved, and hours of painful dental procedures avoided. I have no idea how realistic this is, but its a nice motivator. 

Finally, I instructed my personal assistant Siri, who lives in my Ipod touch, to remind me to set a new goal on October 12th, 29 days into this 30 day challenge. 

What would your 30-day challenge be?
