For most college students, you’re within a month of beginning as a freshman or within a month of returning to college. In either case, you can probably use a mental refresher about setting new goals for the semester. Or, alternatively, perhaps you want to commit to a new study, work, social or athletic regimen.


If you’re in one or more of these situations, Matt Cutts’ TED talk on trying something new for 30 days is the ideal pep talk for setting a goal and moving forward. Enjoy.
