A few years ago, I (FEEL) like I was stuck in a rut, so I (DECIDE) to follow in the footsteps of the great American philosopher, Morgan Spurlock, and try something new for 30 days. The idea is actually pretty simple. Think about something you (ALWAYS / WANT) to add to your life and try it for the next 30 days. It (TURN) out 30 days is just about the right amount of time to add a new habit or subtract a habit -- like (WATCH) the news -- from your life.
There's a few things I (LEARN) while (DO) these 30-day challenges. The first was, instead of the months (FLY) by, forgotten, the time was much more memorable. This (BE) part of a challenge I (DO) to take a picture every day for a month. And I remember exactly where I (BE) and what I (DO) that day. I also (NOTICE) that as I started to do more and harder 30-day challenges, my self-confidence (GROW). I (GO) from desk-dwelling computer nerd to the kind of guy who (BIKE) to work. For fun!
Even last year, I (END) up (HIKE) up Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. I (MODAL / NEVER / BE) that adventurous before I (START) my 30-day challenges.
