A new experiment every week…

I had a crazy idea last week.
.

It's Summer time...a time when I like to do fun and or interesting projects or experiments...for example in the Summer of 2019 I got rejected 1000 times.

.

Inspired by "The 10,000 Experiment Rule",  I  decided I was going to step up my "experimenting game" by starting a new experiment every week!

.

These experiments will be in the areas of health and wealth and self-improvement and sales prospecting and growing a business and whatever else interests me at the moment.

.

Last night I saw an ad on FB about the "30 Day Flexibility Home Stretching Challenge".   That's an example of an experiment I would do, so I added it to the list.

.

This isn't limited to Summer 2021, it's going to be part of my lifestyle moving forward.

.

Why Should You Care?

.

You definitely shouldn't care. 

.

You've got your own life to worry about.

.

I'm doing this for 100% selfish reasons.

.

I discovered during my Summer of 1000 NOs that being public about goals and projects kept me accountable. 

.

It also encouraged people to get out of their comfort zones and try new things themselves.

.

I know my life will improve if I stick to things and I'm more likely to stick to things if I have an audience.

.

"He who experiments the most, wins" - Me?  (Did I just make that up?)

.

If you could use some ideas about improving your life in any area, then follow along.  

.

If you've got it all together, you can leave now.  You've got better things to do.

.

Still here?  Great!

.

These experiments will vary in length...7 days, 30 days, 100 days?  It will all depend on the experiment.

.

I've got a sweet tooth, so committing to 100 days without sugar is not realistic without a very powerful reason, so 7-14 days would be the perfect length for an experiment like that.

.

I'm not starting from scratch...I have some experiments I started in June or July...

.

HEALTH EXPERIMENTS

.

1. Intermittent Fasting - I've done this off and on for years but recently stumbled on a book entitled, Fast Feast Repeat by a gal named Gin Stephens.

.

Another health experiment I've been doing is a little weird.

.

I think I first read about it on TikTok...yes a boy of my advanced age learns from TT videos.

.

One of my experiments will be building a following there.

.

As soon as the bathing suits I've ordered have arrived, look out!

.

Anyway, this random picture of some guy on the internet shows what the experiment involves.

BUSINESS EXPERIMENTS

.

These are going to be fun.

.

Over the years I've done some weird experiments to get customers and clients but even though many were very successful I often didn't repeat them for some reason.

.

First up this time...

.

3. Cold Emailing:  Since July 1st I've been cold emailing local restaurant owners with a proposal to get them to review my text message marketing services at www.InstantHungryCustomers.com

.

 If you have your own business and you sell to other businesses this is an experiment you might be interested in...click here to keep track of my results.

MONEY MAKING EXPERIMENTS

.

4.Testing Survey.com's Merchandiser App

.

This is money maker involving smart phones and going into stores and doing various short term projects like taking pics of Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice bottles and labels.  CLICK HERE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED ON MY FIRST TWO ASSIGNMENTS.

.

 

SELF IMPROVEMENT EXPERIMENTS

.

5. Morning Pages.  This is a practice recommended by Julia Cameron in her book, "The Artist's Way"

.

The practice is every morning you hand write 3 pages. 

.

.
6. 10 Ideas A Day - This idea is courtesy of James Altucher's book, Choose Yourself.    The idea is to exercise your "idea muscle" by writing down 10 ideas a day on any subject.
.
.
.
.

So that's what I have going on so far.

.

I will add at least one new experiment every week.

.

Moving forward I will have separate posts for each update.

.
