Announcing the 30 Days to a Better Man Project

Posted By Brett On May 29, 2009 @ 12:23 pm In 30 Days to a Better Man,A Man's Life | 21 Comments

Starting June 1, The Art of Manliness will begin a month long series called “30 Days to a Better Man.” The goal of this project is simple: to encourage men to be better men in all areas of their lives. I’m sure all of us have made goals to improve ourselves. But often our goals become one of those well meaning intentions that we plan to do…. some day. And if you’re like me, some day never comes, and you’re stuck in the same place of mediocrity you were before.

Personally, I’m more likely to follow through with a goal if I have a specific plan, instead of just some ethereal intention. I’m also more likely to accomplish a goal if I have a group of people who are encouraging me and keeping me accountable.

The 30 Days to a Better Man Project is designed to provide a specific plan and accountability to help you become a better man. And guess what? It’s 100% free. Are you up for the challenge? If so, read on.

How it Works

The Roadmap. Each day in the month of June, we’ll be publishing an article that gives you a specific task to accomplish that day.┬áThe article will begin with a theory component in which we briefly explain the benefits of doing the task and how to go about accomplishing it. After that, you go out and do the task. The tasks will cover a variety of areas of a man’s life including relationships, health, career and money, and style. Even if you already do the things we assign, it’s always good to have a reminder to keep on doing it.

The Accountablity. In addition to the articles, I’ve created a 30 Days to a Better Man Group [1] in the community section. Join the group and interact with other men who are taking part in the project. Hold yourself accountable to the group by sharing whether or not you completed the task. You can also swap tips and discuss how the day’s task went for you.

Make a commitment. The first step to becoming a better man is deciding not be afraid of making commitments. While we hope each article in the 30 Days series will be interesting, they’re not designed as passive entertainment. The project requires you to put what you read into action. So make a commitment to yourself that you will do your very best each day to accomplish the recommend task.

I’m really looking forward to the 30 Days to a Better Man project and I hope you’ll join me. My hope is that by the end of the month, we’ll all be better men.
