Hey, so, this is the page where I try to get you to subscribe to my blog. I mean, that’s what I’m supposed to do here. The idea is you can get email updates, and then when enough people have asked me for email updates, I’ll email you all and try to sell you a book or something. I don’t really remember how it works, but it’s something like that.
Honestly though, it feels a little weird to just ask you for stuff. I’m supposed to brag about how cool I am (the evidence is, at best, inconclusive) or how much fun we’ll have together (I must admit I am pretty fun).
Maybe I could make up “5 Reasons You Need To Subscribe Today” or something. Would that do it? I don’t know. It feels a little desperate.
Maybe I’ll just start by telling you what The Monthly Experiments Project is about. (I know… it’s pretty hard to tell from the name.)
Well, it’s about a guy (me) who doesn’t always know what he’s doing. This guy wants to make his life better, but he’s not an expert at that, so he just tries different things. Little experiments. One per month.
He’s really interested in the idea of habit change.
Someone once told him it takes 21 days to change a habit. He figured that there are 21 days in a month (sometimes even more), so he could try to create one good habit every month.
But he’s afraid of failing. No one knows why. Maybe he should see a psychologist or something. Anyway, he thought it would be less scary to treat everything as an experiment.
So, one day, when he was depressed about his life, he decided to start changing it. He picked one area of his life to improve, and focused on it for a month.
The first month, he stopped being a workaholic. It was pretty amazing. He went from working 16 hours a day to working 9 hours a day. He got really happy, and started enjoying his free time more. He picked up old hobbies. His relationships improved. He even starting making a lot more money. It was weird, but wonderful, and he was hooked.
In one month, his life changed in a really big and meaningful way.
So, he kept trying new experiments. Then he started writing about them. Other people did their own monthly experiments and it made them really happy too. It was great.
The guy felt a sense of purpose. He felt like he was helping people, and making his life better, and trying fun new things. He loved it. He was always learning something new.
Life was an adventure.
Wait, why am I referring to myself in the third person? That’s weird, right?
I think it’s because I don’t really like to be the center of attention. So, let’s not talk about me.
This project isn’t just about me. In fact, it’s much more about you. So, let’s talk about you.
I’m glad you’re here. I don’t know how you got here, but I’m glad you did. You seem pretty awesome.
Hey, can I ask you a personal question?
How’s it going?
I mean, are you pretty happy? I hope you are.
Is there something about your life that you want to change? Or maybe a big goal you want to accomplish?
Thousands of people around the world have taken on a personal experiment and made big changes in their lives.
Our philosophy is simple:
If you dedicate yourself to something new for 1 month, treating this change as an experiment, you will grow and change more than you can imagine.
