The Perfect 30-Day Challenge

Peanut Butter and Jelly. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Pride and Prejudice.

Some things just naturally go together, and today I found out that two of my favorite things – TED videos and 30-day challenges – are being combined together.

Here’s how it works, from the TED site:

Beginning on July 1, once a day for 31 days, you’ll receive a TED-Ed Lesson in your inbox — chosen just for this challenge. Then, watch the video and answer the questions. That’s it! You can do the lesson on the same day you get it, or you can wait and do a few at the same time — just so long as all 31 lessons are done in July. However you choose to do it, we’re cheering you on!

Ready to learn something new every day for 31 days? Sign up here and you’ll get an email starting up the challenge on July 1.

I’ve written before about 30-day challenges, and I’ve shared a few TED videos over the past year-and-a-half in my posts. So this challenge seems like the perfect combo and my wife and I are looking forward to participating.

While the beach and boardwalk maybe the ultimate July combo, I don’t have the time, or money,  to spend the entire month of July at the beach. So watching a different TED video for 31 days straight, with the added bonus of learning something new each day, doesn’t seem like a bad alternative.

I wonder if there will be any vuja de moments?
