It’s timeless advice to help you be YOUR best.
The overall goal of the site was to help you master productivity, master time management, and achieve work life balance. The idea was that by spending a little time each day, you would get back lots of time and energy and produce better results. And we all need an edge in work and life.

So if you’re struggling with any of the above, you might find just the piece of advice or the one or two ideas that help you find your breakthrough.
The Making of 30 Days of Getting Results
Behind the scenes, when I wrote each of the 30 days, I gave myself a 20-minute time limit (a 20-minute timebox for you in the know.) I would then write as if writing to somebody where I only had a small window of time to help them as best I could to achieve better results, in any situation.
It might seem like the first few days start slow, but things pick up from there pretty fast. Also, it’s self-paced so you can hop around to any particular day that you think you need the most.
I’ve had many people tell me that it was the course that they needed that helped them set and achieve better goals, while also helping them make new habits and break bad habits. It’s also helped them find more energy as well as enjoy more of the things that they do. It’s also helped them find ways to spend more time in their strengths and do what makes them come alive.
I will say that the user experience isn’t that great. The site was a test and I didn’t want to spend a lot of time on the site design. That said, it’s pretty straightforward. When you go to the home page at 30 Days of Getting Results, you’ll see a brief intro and overview, and then you can dive in from there, by either starting with Day 1: Take a Tour of Agile Results, or by clicking through the 30 Days on the left-hand side of the menu.
30 Days of Getting Results at a Glance
Here are all the days at a glance for your convenience:
The course is free. Hopefully that doesn’t de-value it. It has a lot of the lessons you would learn in some of the most advanced productivity and time management training.
The Structure of the Daily Lessons
The structure of each day is the same. It includes an outcome, a lesson, and an assignment. And right up front, I include a relevant quote and picture. Here is an example of Day 24 – Bounce Back with Skill:
|Quote:||“Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.” – Anonymous|
|Your Outcome:||Your Outcome: Bounce back with skill and roll with the punches. Learn to draw from multiple sources of strength and energy, including your mind, body, emotions, and spirit.|
|Lesson||Welcome to day 24 of 30 Days of Getting Results, based on my book, Getting Results the Agile Way. In day 23, you learned how to design your week with skill to get a fresh start, establish routines that support and renew you, and spend more time on the things that count for you. Today, we learn how to bounce back with skill. Bouncing back with skill helps us roll with the punches, refuel our bodies, and keep our spark alive. It’s how we keep our engine going when the rest of us says “we can’t” and it’s how we “shut down” or “turn it off” so we can bounce back stronger.

Get Started with 30 Days of Getting Results
If you want to start off well for 2015, and you have big dreams and big goals in mind, then give 30 Days of Getting Results a try:
If you want to take it slow and steady, then just try one lesson each day. If you’re feeling gung-ho, then see how quickly you can make it through all 30 at your own pace.
To help you stay on track, if you take the slow and steady route, build the habit by adding a simple reminder to your calendar in the morning to go and take the next lesson. Do it Monday through Friday and take the weekends off.
Enjoy and best wishes for your best year ever.
