All 30 Day Challenges (Roadmap)

What are 30 Day Challenges?

Back in 2011, I was inspired by a TED Talk by Matt Cutts about the 30 Day Challenge and decided to embark on my own. (If you haven’t watched it, Matt explains it better than any summary I could muster):

Uhh… Why?

Hopefully after 30 days of doing something worthwhile, you can maintain a good habit and incorporate it into your life. These challenges test your personal motivation and I think are most valuable when they’re not explicitly restrictive in nature (e.g. cutting out soda, sweets, caffeine, etc). I try to design these challenges to produce content or try new things.
