A few years ago,

2000
Pyrma dažim godim
es sasajutu, kai byutu īsasprīds kasdīnā,
00:17
I felt like I was stuck in a rut,
1
2000
3000
00:20
so I decided to follow in the footsteps
2
5000
2000
deļtuo izdūmuoju sekuot
00:22
of the great American philosopher, Morgan Spurlock,
3
7000
3000
dyžanuo amerikaņu filosofa
Morgana Sperloka pāduos
00:25
and try something new for 30 days.
4
10000
3000
i 30 dīnys paraudzeit kū jaunu.
00:28
The idea is actually pretty simple.
5
13000
2000
Ideja ir cīši vīnkuorša.
00:30
Think about something you've always wanted to add to your life
6
15000
3000
Aizadūmoj par kū taidu,
kū sovā dzeivē vysod esi gribiejis padareit
00:33
and try it for the next 30 days.
7
18000
3000
i paraugi tū cytys 30 dīnys.
00:36
It turns out,
8
21000
2000
Izaruoda, kai 30 dīnys
ir taišni eistuo laika šaļts,
00:38
30 days is just about the right amount of time
9
23000
2000
00:40
to add a new habit or subtract a habit --
10
25000
2000
kab dabuotu jaunu īrodumu
voi pamastu kaidu vacū,
00:42
like watching the news --
11
27000
2000
pīvadumam, ziņu vieršonuos
00:44
from your life.
12
29000
2000
nu sovys dzeivis.
00:46
There's a few things I learned while doing these 30-day challenges.
13
31000
3000
Ir koč kas, kū īsavuiceju,
dorūt itūs 30 dīnu aizdavumus.
00:49
The first was,
14
34000
2000
Vysu pyrma
00:51
instead of the months flying by, forgotten,
15
36000
3000
mieneši naproskrieja garum, aizmiersteibā,
00:54
the time was much more memorable.
16
39000
3000
i beja daudzi vairuok kū atguoduot.
00:57
This was part of a challenge I did to take a picture every day for a month.
17
42000
3000
Daļa izaicynuojuma aizdavuma beja
kotru mieneša dīnu sataiseit vīnu fotografeju.
01:00
And I remember exactly where I was
18
45000
3000
Es atguodoju, kur taišni beju
i kū tymā dīnā dareju.
01:03
and what I was doing that day.
19
48000
3000
01:06
I also noticed
20
51000
2000
Pamaneju,
ka kai dareju vaira
i gryušuokus 30 dīnu aizdavumus,
01:08
that as I started to do more and harder 30-day challenges,
21
53000
2000
01:10
my self-confidence grew.
22
55000
2000
auga muna ticeiba sev.
01:12
I went from desk-dwelling computer nerd
23
57000
2000
Nū sātā sādūša datortuorpa
01:14
to the kind of guy who bikes to work --
24
59000
3000
es tyku par puiškinu,
kurs brauc iz dorbu ar ritini.
01:17
for fun.
25
62000
3000
Prīcys piec!
(Smīklys)
01:20
Even last year, I ended up hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro,
26
65000
3000
Pārnajā godā saguoja izkuopt Kilimandžaro,
01:23
the highest mountain in Africa.
27
68000
2000
aukstuokajā kolnā Afrikā.
01:25
I would never have been that adventurous
28
70000
3000
Pyrma izsuoču sovus 30 dīnu aizdavumus
nikod nabyutu tveics piec taidim pīdzeivuojumim
01:28
before I started my 30-day challenges.
29
73000
3000
01:31
I also figured out
30
76000
2000
Es saprotu, ka eistyn koč kū gribi,
01:33
that if you really want something badly enough,
31
78000
2000
01:35
you can do anything for 30 days.
32
80000
3000
tod 30 dīnuos var padareit vysa kuo!
01:38
Have you ever wanted to write a novel?
33
83000
2000
Asat nazkod gribiejuši pīraksteit romanu?
01:40
Every November,
34
85000
2000
Kotru novembri
01:42
tens of thousands of people
35
87000
2000
desmitim tyukstūšu cylvāku
01:44
try to write their own 50,000-word novel from scratch
36
89000
4000
30 dīnu laikā rauga pīraksteit
sovu 50 000 vuordu romanu
01:48
in 30 days.
37
93000
2000
nu nullis.
01:50
It turns out, all you have to do
38
95000
2000
Izaruoda, kai jiusim tik viņ
kai vīnu mienesi kotru dīnu juopīroksta
01:52
is write 1,667 words a day
39
97000
3000
01:55
for a month.
40
100000
2000
1 667 vuordi.
01:57
So I did.
41
102000
2000
Tai es ari dareju.
01:59
By the way, the secret is not to go to sleep
42
104000
2000
Cyta vydā, nūslāpums ir naīt gulātu,
02:01
until you've written your words for the day.
43
106000
3000
cikom naasat pīrakstejuši ituos dīnys vuordus.
02:04
You might be sleep-deprived,
44
109000
2000
Jiusim varbyut byus mīga bods,
02:06
but you'll finish your novel.
45
111000
2000
nu dabeigsit sovu romanu.
02:08
Now is my book the next great American novel?
46
113000
4000
Voi muna gruomota
ir jauns dyžanais Amerikys romans?
02:12
No. I wrote it in a month.
47
117000
2000
Nā! Es tū pīraksteju par vīnu mienesi!
Jis ir baimeigs!
02:14
It's awful.
48
119000
3000
(Smīklys)
02:17
But for the rest of my life,
49
122000
2000
Tok vysu tuoļuokuo dzeivi,
02:19
if I meet John Hodgman at a TED party,
50
124000
3000
kod TED večerinkā
sasateiku ar Džonu Hodžmenu,
02:22
I don't have to say,
51
127000
2000
maņ nav juosoka:
02:24
"I'm a computer scientist."
52
129000
2000
„Es asu datorzynuotnīks.”
02:26
No, no, if I want to, I can say, "I'm a novelist."
53
131000
3000
Nā, nā, ka grybu,
varu saceit: „Asu rakstinīks.”
02:29
(Laughter)
54
134000
3000
(Smīklys)
02:32
So here's one last thing I'd like to mention.
55
137000
3000
Vei, pādejais, kū grybu saceit.
02:35
I learned that when I made small, sustainable changes,
56
140000
3000
Es īsavuiceju, ka dorūt mozys
i ilgtspiejeigys puormejis,
02:38
things I could keep doing,
57
143000
2000
tū, kū es varu dareit ari iz prīšku,
02:40
they were more likely to stick.
58
145000
2000
tys īrosts palyka.
02:42
There's nothing wrong with big, crazy challenges.
59
147000
3000
Lelim i trokim izaicynuojumim
nav ni vainis.
02:45
In fact, they're a ton of fun.
60
150000
3000
Eistyneibā, tī ir dyžan ļusteigi.
Tok tī drūsai viņ nabyus īrodums.
02:48
But they're less likely to stick.
61
153000
2000
02:50
When I gave up sugar for 30 days,
62
155000
2000
30 dīnys atsasokūt nu cukra,
02:52
day 31 looked like this.
63
157000
2000
31. dīna izaviere koč kai itai:
02:54
(Laughter)
64
159000
2000
(Smīklys)
02:56
So here's my question to you:
65
161000
3000
Tai niu es jums vaicoju:
02:59
What are you waiting for?
66
164000
2000
Kuo jius vēļ gaidit?
03:01
I guarantee you the next 30 days
67
166000
2000
Es varu drūsai saceit, ka cytys 30 dīnys
03:03

68
168000
2000
īs iz prīkšu taipat, kai guojušys.
pateik jums tys voi nā,
03:05
whether you like it or not,
69
170000
2000
03:07
so why not think about something
70
172000
2000
tod parkū napadūmuot par kū taidu,
kū vysod asat gribiejs paraudzeit,
03:09
you have always wanted to try
71
174000
2000
03:11
and give it a shot
72
176000
2000
