If you already have the motivation
to pursue new resolutions for 2021, you may think that there's no need to commit yourself to make 30-day challenges. Maybe you think that writing down something like, "I want to be able to speak Japanese in 2021" is enough for you. But here's the thing: Research
has shown that when you set goals that are difficult and specific, you are more likely to put effort into achieving them than goals that are too easy or unclear.
Why 30 days, though? Well, regardless of what new habit you are trying to build, forming it requires consistent repetition
over a certain time. A habit is successfully formed when you do the action automatically, meaning you don't need to talk yourself into it every time for the habit to be performed.
Although there have been debates on how long you should perform an action
for it to be a habit, we believe that 30-day challenges are a great way to start forming your habit.
