30 days is a pretty common number here on Jalup. You know those monthly achievement threads we’ve been doing here since 2014? That’s 30 days of realizing your Japanese goals.
I had first gotten into 30 day challenges from a popular Ted Talk video from nearly a decade ago.
The idea is simple. Do something for 30 days, and you will change your life. This can be creating a new habit or breaking a bad one. But just do it. Don’t think about the long term – just focus on those 30 days, and watch. While there is no science that says 30 days (or the previously popular 21 days) is the magic number, it is a decent chunk of time. And by making it to 30, you have a high probability of making it for good.
I love 30 days challenges and have been doing them for years. But I wanted a better way to organize them for myself. I wanted easily viewable progress, daily reminders, and motivational images. All the apps I had found on this topic were fitness focused. Others were too general. So I decided to create my own little app for myself, solely around the 30 day challenge.
What is 30toWin?
30toWin is a small pet project of mine. An iOS app to aid in 30 day challenges. I just released it in the app store, and it is 100% free for anyone who wants to ramp up their goal setting. There is no grand vision for this app, but there are a bunch of small features that I personally want, that I plan adding over time. I thought it might help some people on this site struggling with setting Japanese goals, so here we are :)
Breaking bad habits and creating new good ones both have one thing in common – they take time and effort. But if you can keep up your goal every day for 30 days, there is a good chance you will win. That’s where we come in.
With 30toWin, you:
1. Set your goals
2. View your progress
3. Are reminded daily
4. Motivate yourself to make it to day 30
It’s not easy changing your life. We’re here to lend a hand.
