30-Day Challenges can be tough, but I believe they are the best way to make positive changes in your life. They say it only takes 30 days to form a habit, and we all have lots of habits we’d like to adopt:
Eating healthy, no fast food
Make new friends
Watch less TV
Read more books
The list goes on and on.
If you’ve been to my Facebook page, you might know that I’m in the middle of a 30-Day Challenge to write a blog post every day. I set this challenge because I want to become a better writer, and the more I write, the more my skills will improve.
I started doing 30-Day Challenges at the beginning of the year, and I’ve already completed 5 and am on my 6th one right now (I overlap them as I see fit).
So far this year I’ve completed:
One Vegan Meal Per Day (100%)
Our First 30 Days Together (97%) – did something special for my wife every day, missed one
Complete the Miracle Morning Every Day (100%)
No Coffee for One Month (100%)
Daily 30 Minutes of Play with My Boys (100%)
My next one will be my first poker challenge for the year: Study Poker 1 Hour Every Day. I’m sure you can see the value in this. I’ll start it on May 18th.
Poker 30-Day Challenges
Regarding poker, there are many positive poker habits that I’m sure we’d all like to make our own. Here’s a list of Poker 30-Day Challenges I’m considering this year (the first two I’ll do for sure):
Daily Warm-up before session (I’m sometimes overeager and fire up tables right away)
Post a hand on a poker forum each day
Give up alcohol
Read a poker strategy article each day
Read two poker strategy books, one every 15 days (break each up into 15 parts)
Record 30 minutes of game tape each day and watch it the following day
Write a detailed post about one HUD stat each day; broken down 8 ways from Sunday
Create a Twitch account and broadcast a session every day
There are so many more I can do, but if I get all these done this year that would be amazing! Here’s a snapshot of my current 30-Day Challenge Tracker that you can download here:
I think it’s time you started your own 30-Day Challenge to improve your poker game.

Make your next session the best one yet!
