I have a friend who became a vegetarian. For 30 days. As a meat lover, that makes me shudder. But it’s only 30 days, right!?!?
Matt Cutts, an engineer at Google, gave a talk at this year’s TED conference about 30-day challenges. He argues that you can set a 30-day goal and it’s just the right amount of time to make it both achievable as well as potentially putting you on the road to a new lifestyle.
What could you do for 30 days? Professionally? Personally?
Here are a few ideas for you:
-Call a donor every day for 30 days. Just say thank you.
-Even better, call 30 donors a day for 30 days!
-Write a personal handwritten appeal to acquire a new donor every day for 30 days.
-Tell at least one member of your team how much you value them every day for 30 days.
-Tell yourself the same thing every day for 30 days.
-Set aside one hour a day just to think about ‘big ideas’ for your organization every day for 30 days.
That’s just a start. The clock is ticking and the next 30 days starts. . . right. . . . NOW!
