Orain dela urte batzuk,
nolabait errutinan trabatuta negoela sentitu
00:15
A few years ago,
00:17
I felt like I was stuck in a rut,
eta hortaz
00:20
so I decided to follow in the footsteps
Morgan Spurlock filosofo estatubatuar handiaren
aztarnak jarraitzera erabaki nuen
00:22
of the great American philosopher, Morgan Spurlock,
00:25
and try something new for 30 days.
30 egun oro
gauza berri bat egiten saiatzea hain zuzen
00:28
The idea is actually pretty simple.
Idea nahiko sinplea da berez
00:30
Think about something you've always wanted to add to your life
Pentsa ezazue
betidanik egin nahi izan duzuen zerbaitetan
00:33
and try it for the next 30 days.
eta ekin iezaiozue hurrengo 30 egunetarako.
00:36
It turns out,
Diotenez, 30 egun dira
ohitura on bat lortzeko beharrezko egunak;
00:38
30 days is just about the right amount of time
00:40
to add a new habit or subtract a habit --
edota txarrak kentzeko,
00:42
like watching the news --
Adibidez, albisteak ikusteari etetea,
zure bizitzatik kentzea.
00:44
from your life.
00:46
There's a few things I learned while doing these 30-day challenges.
Badaude 30 egunetako erronka hauetan
ikasi ditudan zenbait gauza
00:49
The first was,
Lehenengoa,
hilak hiltzen utzi beharrean
00:51
instead of the months flying by, forgotten,
denbora askoz gogoangarriagoa zela
00:54
the time was much more memorable.
00:57
This was part of a challenge I did to take a picture every day for a month.
Adibidez, egunero argazki bat
atera nahi izan nuenekoa da hau
01:00
And I remember exactly where I was
eta argi gogoratzen dut non zen
eta baita zertan ari nintzen ere.
01:03
and what I was doing that day.
01:06
I also noticed
Honez gain,
gero eta erronka zail eta anitzagoak
nituela ohartu nintzen
01:08
that as I started to do more and harder 30-day challenges,
01:10
my self-confidence grew.
eta nire konfidantzak gora egin zuen.
01:12
I went from desk-dwelling computer nerd
Aulkira lotutako nerd bat izatetik
01:14
to the kind of guy who bikes to work --
lanera bizikletan doan horietako bat izateraino.
01:17
for fun.
Ta guztia ondo pasatzeko!
01:20
Even last year, I ended up hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro,
Joan den urtean, Kilimanjaro igotzera heldu nintzen
01:23
the highest mountain in Africa.
Afrikako mendi altuena.
01:25
I would never have been that adventurous
Badakit, 30 eguneko erronkak hasi ez gero, ez nintzatekela inoiz orain bezain abenturazalea izango.
01:28
before I started my 30-day challenges.
01:31
I also figured out
Bestalde, zerbait bai edo bai nahi izanez gero
01:33
that if you really want something badly enough,
01:35
you can do anything for 30 days.
30 egunetan zehar
edozer egiteko kapaza zarela ohartu naiz.
01:38
Have you ever wanted to write a novel?
Nobela bat idaztea amestu duzula?
01:40
Every November,
01:42
tens of thousands of people
Azaro oro,
hamarmilaka pertsona
01:44
try to write their own 50,000-word novel from scratch
zerotik 50.000 hitzeko nobelak idazten saiatzen dira
01:48
in 30 days.
30 egunetan.
01:50
It turns out, all you have to do
Hortaz, eguneko
1667 hitz idatzea tokatzen zaizkizu
01:52
is write 1,667 words a day
01:55
for a month.
hilabete osoan zehar.
01:57
So I did.
Ta horixe bera egin nuen.
01:59
By the way, the secret is not to go to sleep
Gainera, sekretua lo egitera ez joatea da
02:01
until you've written your words for the day.
behintzat eguneko hitz kopurua amaitu arte.
02:04
You might be sleep-deprived,
Baliteke loa faltan botatzea,
02:06
but you'll finish your novel.
baina nobela amaituko duzu.
02:08
Now is my book the next great American novel?
Hala ere, nere nobela
hurrengo amerikar best-sellerra al da?
02:12
No. I wrote it in a month.
Noski ezetz, hilabete baten idatzi nuen.
02:14
It's awful.
Txarra baino txarragoa da!
02:17
But for the rest of my life,
Behintzat, John Hodgman
TEDeko festa baten aurkitzen badut,
02:19
if I meet John Hodgman at a TED party,
02:22
I don't have to say,
ez daukat zera esan beharrik:
02:24
"I'm a computer scientist."
"Informatika ingeniaria naiz".
02:26
No, no, if I want to, I can say, "I'm a novelist."
Ez, ez, nahi izanez gero,
zera esan dezaket "nobela idazlea naiz".
02:29
(Laughter)
02:32
So here's one last thing I'd like to mention.
Azken gauza bat esatea gustatuko litzaidake.
02:35
I learned that when I made small, sustainable changes,
Ikusi dut
aldaketa txiki egonkorrak egin izan ditudanean,
02:38
things I could keep doing,
denboran mantendu ditzakedanak,
ohiturak barneratzen direla.
02:40
they were more likely to stick.
02:42
There's nothing wrong with big, crazy challenges.
Ez dago ezer txarrik erronka handi eta zoroetan.
Izatez, oso dibetigarrik dira,
02:45
In fact, they're a ton of fun.
baina ez dute denboran irauten.
02:48
But they're less likely to stick.
02:50
When I gave up sugar for 30 days,
Azukrea 30 egunetan zehar utzi nuenean
02:52
day 31 looked like this.
31. eguna honelakoa zen.
02:54
(Laughter)
02:56
So here's my question to you:
Hortaz, hau da nere galdera zuentzako:
02:59
What are you waiting for?
zeri itxaroten zaudate?
03:01
I guarantee you the next 30 days
Hurrengo 30 egunak
03:03
are going to pass
nahitaez pasako direla ziurtatzen dizuet
03:05
whether you like it or not,
03:07
so why not think about something
zergatik ez pentsa
beti egin nahi izan duzuen zerbaitetan?
03:09
you have always wanted to try
03:11
and give it a shot
Eta ahalegindu zaitezte!
03:13
for the next 30 days.
Hurregon 30 egunetan zehar.
03:15
Thanks.
Eskerrik asko!
03:17
(Applause)
