Another 30 x 30 challenge has come and gone and I’m interested in hearing how things went for you. Folks are often in a great mindset in January to create new habits (I know I am), and I’m hoping that those who chose to participate in the January 30 x 30 challenge (30 minutes of genealogy research for 30 days in a row) found it beneficial!
So please, report in! I’ll start. Unlike last October’s challenge, this challenge for me was terrific. I was able to research each and every day and it was never a hardship. It helped that I had a lot of time at my desk this month (which I’m particularly grateful for because it’s been so cold out). And I think it also helped, for some reason, that I was also doing yoga daily. Something about combining those two daily habits was synergistic, I think. In any case, my research log is a thing of beauty because there’s an entry every day.
So what’s next? For me, I’m going to work on vanquishing the genealogy paper pile I discovered late in the month by spending 30 minutes a day with it until it’s gone. (That counts as research, in my book.) I’m not declaring a formal challenge but I’m hoping that I’ll work on it each and every day. Two months of daily research would really make me happy!
How about you? How’d your January 30 x 30 challenge go? Did you find it helpful?
