Join me for “Thirty Days of Fundy’s”

What’s a Fundy? It’s short (and silly) for Fundamental – plus it’s FUN!

Starting Monday, April 11th and running for 30 consecutive days, each person (including me) will choose ONE NEW practice to add to his or her life.

Now can be the time to finally start doing one action that you know you need to do (and that’s good for you)! Maybe it’s flossing, stretching, reading, or smiling. :-)



The challenge has launched April 11, 2011. If you’d like to be notified for the next challenge, fill out this form:


You’ll receive a daily email as a reminder and I’m brainstorming other cool stuff to include (if you have ideas, let me know)!

There is scientific evidence that it takes at least 21 days (without missing a day) for our brain to form a new habit – we’re in this game of life for the long-haul, though, so we’re going to ensure it’s there by rocking out a full month!

The emphasis is definitely on one habit, as we baby step ourselves towards success. Ideally, this is something that takes you 15 minutes or less each day to complete.

And if you’re not already flossing everyday, that might be a great one to start; as it’s something we know is good for us and we know is important, if we can master flossing daily, then we can handle anything!

For more ideas on what you might want to add to your life, check out this post.

Other items to consider with your new habit:

  • Performing it at the same time each day, whether it’s specific (9 am), or relative (when you first get out of bed)
  • Wearing the same clothes and/or being in the same room – use as many of your senses as possible in the ritual to help condition your brain and create associations

How will you improve your life?

    Hey Nathan!! This is a fantastic idea! I’ll take you up on the offer and COMMIT to 30 days of completing my AM ritual. I’ve heard again and again that doing fundamentals first thing in the morning is a powerful way to get leverage over one’s life, so I commit to waking up at 7AM, drinking a green drink, doing 35 minutes of Qi’Gong/Yoga/basic calisthenics/breathing, and another 35 minute of journaling, meditating, and setting my intention for the day. Excited to join you April 11th!

      hey john – this sounds awesome! as i know you’re a sharp guy, i also like how you found a loophole to the “ONE new practice” (as you combined about a dozen there)! make sure to sign up via the link on the page so that you’re kept in the loop! mahalo bro and excited to see all the goodness you’re going to rock!

    Hey Nathan,

    great idea! I’m still thinking about what habit I want to start (having some resistance/fear coming up around doing this thing EVERY SINGLE DAY no matter what – isn’t being flexible a good thing too? this is my smart-ass excuse :)

    Was curious about your ideas, but this link didn’t work for me:

    “For more ideas on what you might want to add to your life, check out this post.”

    I’m glad I have some time to figure it out…

    Have a magical day!

    • Nathan says:

      hey marianna! thanks for checking this out. in my experience, the longer i let those gremlins in my head rattle on, the less chance i have to actually commit to something. it’s through the discipline of daily practice that we’ll start to see what we’re really capable of. i definitely think many of us are wired with an internal glass ceiling of how high we can climb – by committing to these practices, in some ways we’re looking to smash through that!

      and remember, this isn’t all the ways you can change your life – could be something really easy and simple. baby steps and Kaizen are the way to go, i’ve found.

      and thanks for the note about the link – it’s been fixed above:

    I’m trying to create a habit of doing 50 pushups a day for 30 days every morning when I get up. Excellent blog Nathan I have never seen it before, but I think it’s awesome. Love meeting more cool bloggers like you.

    • Nathan says:

      thanks so much for stopping by wilson! really appreciate the comments. you have a great goal and with this challenge, i believe you’ll be able to take that “try” out of the equation! feel free to sign up – link is above. :-)

    Hey, Hey, Nathan,

    Finally was able to take the time to surf your site. Good things going on here, as I would expect nothing less from someone with a mind like yours. It was great catching up with you Sunday. I could totally use more days like that in my life. Walking, talking and getting your thoughts in to open air with those that are receptive is something that I find very important. Thank you for that. But I digress!

    I am going to take you up on your challenge! As we discussed on the subway, flossing is something that I think I need to do daily and have found it difficult to commit to (for unknown reasons). SO I am with you, friend. As a sidebar, I started meditating today, before I attempted anything else. I was going to take your advice and start with 30 seconds or so only to find that I slipped off for 7 minutes. I came out surprised. Wondering how long I can slip away for next time.

    Hope you are well (as I’m sure you are), and know that your friendship has been greatly appreciated.

    Be well and talk soon,


    • Nathan says:

      AWESOME bill! yeah, i had a fantastic time, too – glad we were able to connect in the real world, outside! glad to have you part of the challenge – look forward to you rockin’ it! :-)

    On Feb.4th I committed to no mainlining sugar. It was my birthday and I ate two small slices over 2 days – this is a world record for me! A week later, I committed to 100 sit-ups/day. I missed one day by accident. Some days I do more, or add a few other floor exercises.

    I have committed to taking a raft of supplements, including some horrible-tasting protein powders (hemp is the worst and when it is gone I will spend my money on versions of whey), omitting white carbs, more green veggies, and more frequent getting up from sitting. So far – excellent!

    Up comes your challenge (via Joel D Canfield) and I think, what more can a girl do? I think for one month, a girl can commit to logging on to her stock investing account and spending at least 10 minutes looking and learning.

    P.S. I already floss.

    • Nathan says:

      i LOVE what you’ve already committed to, caitlyn – and that hemp comment made me smile! :-)
      thanks for being part of the challenge – excited to see what you (and your investing account) can do over the next month!
