当我在30天做这些挑战性事情时,我学到以下一些事。
00:49
The first was,
14
34000
2000
第一件事是,
00:51
instead代替 of the months个月 flying飞行 by, forgotten忘记了,

我清楚地记得那一天我所处的位置
01:03
and what I was doing that day.

我都在干什么。
01:06
I also noticed注意到

我也注意到
01:08
that as I started开始 to do more and harder更难 30-day-天 challenges挑战,
21
53000
2000
随着我开始做更多的,更难的30天里具有挑战性的事时,
01:10
my self-confidence自信心 grew成长.
22
55000
2000
我自信心也增强了。
01:12
I went from desk-dwelling台栖 computer电脑 nerd书呆子
23
57000
2000
我从一个台式计算机宅男极客
01:14
to the kind of guy who bikes自行车 to work --

59000
3000
变成了一个爱骑自行车去工作的人--
01:17
for fun开玩笑.
25
62000
3000
为了玩乐。
01:20
Even last year, I ended结束 up hiking徒步旅行 up Mt公吨. Kilimanjaro乞力马扎罗山,

01:25
I would never have been that adventurous爱冒险的
28
70000
3000
在我开始这30天做挑战性的事之前
01:28
before I started开始 my 30-day-天 challenges挑战.
29
73000
3000
我从来没有这样爱冒险过。
01:31
I also figured想通 out
30
76000
2000
我也认识到
01:33
that if you really want something badly enough足够,
31
78000
2000
如果你真想一些槽糕透顶的事,
01:35
you can do anything for 30 days.
32
80000
3000
你可以在30天里做这些事。
01:38
Have you ever wanted to write a novel小说?

83000
2000
你曾想写小说吗?
01:40
Every一切 November十一月,

2000
数以万计的人们
01:44
try to write their own拥有 50,000-word-字 novel小说 from scratch
36
89000
4000

01:52
is write 1,667 words a day
39
97000
3000
就是每天写1667个字
01:55
for a month.
40
100000
2000
要写一个月。
01:57
So I did.
41
102000
2000
所以我做到了。
01:59
By the way, the secret秘密 is not to go to sleep睡觉
42
104000
2000
顺便说一下,秘密是除非在一天里你已经写完了1667个字,
02:01
until直到 you've written书面 your words for the day.
43
106000
3000
要不你就甭想睡觉。
02:04
You might威力 be sleep-deprived睡眠剥夺,
44
109000
2000
你可能被剥夺睡眠,
02:06
but you'll你会 finish your novel小说.
45
111000
2000
但你将会完成你的小说。
02:08
Now is my book the next下一个 great American美国 novel小说?
46
113000
4000
那么我写的书会是下一部伟大的美国小说吗?
02:12
No. I wrote it in a month.
47
117000
2000
不是的。我在一个月内写完它。
02:14
It's awful可怕.
48
119000
3000
它看上去太可怕了。
02:17
But for the rest休息 of my life,
49
122000
2000
但在我的余生,
02:19
if I meet遇到 John约翰 HodgmanHodgman at a TEDTED party派对,
50
124000
3000
如果我在一个TED聚会上遇见约翰·霍奇曼,
02:22
I don't have to say,
51
127000
2000
我不必开口说,
02:24
"I'm a computer电脑 scientist科学家."
52
129000
2000
“我是一个电脑科学家。”
02:26
No, no, if I want to, I can say, "I'm a novelist小说家."
53
131000
3000
不,不会的,如果我想我可以说,“我是一个小说家。”
02:29
(Laughter笑声)
54
134000
3000
(笑声)
02:32
So here's这里的 one last thing I'd like to mention提到.
55
137000
3000
我这儿想提的最后一件事。
02:35
I learned学到了 that when I made制作 small, sustainable可持续发展 changes变化,
56
140000
3000
当我做些小的,持续性的变化,
02:38
things I could keep doing,
57
143000
2000
我可以不断尝试做的事时,
02:40
they were more likely容易 to stick.
58
145000
2000
我学到我可以把它们更容易地坚持做下来。
02:42
There's nothing wrong错误 with big, crazy challenges挑战.
59
147000
3000
这和又大又疯狂的具有挑战性的事情无关。
02:45
In fact事实, they're a ton of fun开玩笑.
60
150000
3000
事实上,它们的乐趣无穷。
02:48
But they're less likely容易 to stick.
61
153000
2000
但是,它们就不太可能坚持做下来。
02:50
When I gave up sugar for 30 days,
62
155000
2000
当我在30天里拒绝吃糖果,
02:52
day 31 looked看着 like this.
63
157000
2000
31天后看上去就像这样。
02:54
(Laughter笑声)
64
159000
2000
(笑声)
02:56
So here's这里的 my question to you:
65
161000
3000
所以我给大家提的问题是:
02:59
What are you waiting等候 for?
66
164000
2000
大家还在等什么呀?
03:01
I guarantee保证 you the next下一个 30 days
67
166000
2000
我保准大家在未来的30天
03:03
are going to pass通过
68
168000
2000
会去经历
03:05
whether是否 you like it or not,
69
170000
2000
你喜欢或者不喜欢的事,
03:07
so why not think about something
70
172000
2000
那么为什么不考虑一些
03:09
you have always wanted to try
71
174000
2000
你常想去尝试
03:11
and give it a shot射击
72
176000
2000
并在未来30天里试试
03:13
for the next下一个 30 days.
