Not just for Dads

Intentional Influence – Thoughts for Leaders and Fathers…and anyone who knows some!

Anyone can do this for 30 days…

“Think of something you’ve always wanted to add to your life (or subtract from you life) and then stick with it for 30 days”

That’s the simple idea shared by Matt Cutts in his TED-Talk in 2011.  And this simple idea literally has the potential to change your life. How do I know? Because I tried it and it has changed mine!

I have been doing this “30-day-challenge-thing” since last December and it has helped me grow, mature, learn and become more focused. Every month I pick something I want to work on in my life, some area I want to grow in. That could be something like:

  • Write a blog post every day for 30 days
  • Get up at 5am every day for 30 days
  • Spend quality time with my son every day for 30 days
  • No Chocolate for 30 days

You get the idea. Health, productivity, hobbies, social skills, leadership… the options are endless. The room for growth is as well.

Just 30 days.
It’s simple – not always easy, but totally do-able.

I believe we all have something in our life that we are pushing off, avoiding, procrastinating…Something that would make our lives more enjoyable, productive or meaningful – if we just got started.

I am not sure what you want to get out of life. I want to make a difference for the better. I want to have a positive influence on those around me. This is a small way to start that. It’s worked great for me so far.

Imagine what you could look back to after 30 days. Imagine what you will have accomplished by the end of the year…If you just got started today.

So what are you waiting for?

I am pretty sure there is something specific on your mind as you are reading this, that you should do (or stop doing) for the next 30 days. The temptation for you right now is to quickly close this website and get on with your busy life. DON’T DO IT. What are you afraid of? What at you waiting for?

It’s only thirty days.
But these thirty days can change your life!
