The Magical Number

I’m currently reading Zero Cash, A Little Talent and 30 Days by Jennifer Laycock. It’s a series of articles that chronicle her attempt to set up a business that would turn a profit in 30 days using her skills and free time and absolutely no money to start. She has clearly outlined all the steps that she took to reach her goal so it’s a great read for anyone who has a business idea that they’ve been considering. It’s a wonderful experiment that shows how much you can accomplish with a good idea and a strong effort. 

30 seems to be the magical number these days. Other than Jennifer’s site, I’ve also been reading many of the articles on Steve Pavlina’s site. His 30 Days to Success article really caught my eye. He suggests using a 30 day trial to develop a new habit or just try out a new habit that you’re unsure about. If after 30 days you decide that the habit you tried just isn’t working out for you, drop it. If it did work for you then it is much easier to make the habit permanent because the hardest part (starting the habit) is already over.

I recommend heading over there to check it out, he also has a huge archive of articles on topics such as The Law of Attraction, success, entrepreneurship, business, finances- the list goes on and on. There’s definitely something for everyone on there, even if you don’t agree with all of his writings you can skip around and find something that works for you.
