21-Day Challenge: How to Develop Good Habits

Have you ever managed to accomplish your New Year’s resolution and turn it into a habit? If so, do you remember how much time it took you to do it? 

Dr. Maxwell Maltz had the theory that 21 days are enough to develop a habit.

At the end of 2020, our Human Value Manager Aleksandra Radujko organised a workshop on how to set our resolutions. Thanks to the examples from real life and exercises she presented to us, we found out how to achieve our resolutions. 

Now we are ready to test what we have learned, and develop new habits. So, we invite you to join us in this challenge, leave your comfort zone and develop a new habit.

How Do You Set Your Goal?

Before you start the 21-day challenge, think about something that you wish to change. When you determine the thing you want to improve in your life, define your goal and commit to it for the next three weeks.

  1. Write down what your current situation is:
  • My current state compared with the result I want to achieve
  • My current activities compared with the result I want to achieve
  1. Write down the obstacles you may come across on your way to achieve your goal.
  2. Make a daily plan:

The planned activities (write them down on the first day of the challenge)
The accomplished activities (write them down at the end of each day)

Here are some of our colleagues’ goals:

  • Develop healthier eating habits
  • Manage time better
  • Have enough sleep
  • Improve foreign language skills
  • Read a book
  • Jog each day
  • Gain/lose weight 

How to Build Your Good Habits?

To meet your challenge and achieve your goal, it’s essential that you follow the SMART criteria. And, what does SMART stand for?

Specific – Think about the purpose of this challenge

Measurable – Set the number of pages you want to read, pounds you want to lose/gain, etc.

Ambitious – Commit yourself to making your wish come true

Realistic –  Make sure you set realistic goals you can achieve

Time-related – We have already done it for you. The challenge should last for 21 day. 🙂

If you are eager to work on your personal or professional improvement by building good habits, we invite you to join us in this challenge during the next three weeks.

Feel free to write to me at m.misovic@emakina.rs and share your impressions and results. We can’t wait to share our experience with you, too.
