08 Apr Talk 2 More People – A 30 Day Challenge – Day 1 London, England
I can usually sleep on flights, but unfortunately not this one. Although the direct flight from Calgary to London – Gatwick was comfortable, I was unable to rest much at all. This was just fine however due to the enjoyable conversation with the two people next to me. We chatted on and off throughout the flight and shared many laughs.
Once finally in central London I had several hours to spend before meeting some old friends. I took this opportunity to have a walking tour through Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the South Bank.
As this 30 day challenge has now officially started, I met several people along the way. Interestingly, there are less people who speak English in central London than I remembered from when I lived here in 2000.
I got to have good chats with some dancers, a gymnast, and a family while visiting these sights. The dancing in this video was after their show. I asked permission to use some video of their work in my video and they greatly appreciated the free publicity. Perhaps one day this little video could help them find an opportunity? Who knows?
@Talk2MorePeople Try this challenge! Instructions are below today’s video.
Are you interested in getting involved? It’s pretty simple. Here’s how:
- Decide on a date to start this challenge. The sooner you decide to start, the more likely you will be to actually start.
- Simply approach and meet someone new in your day-to-day activities every day for 30 days. If it suits you better, you can meet 30 people over the course of the 30 days and not every single day.
- Keep track of this either on your own, with the downloadable and printable TTMP 30 Day Challenge Coffee Card (below) or with any of the below social media.
- When appropriate, invite those who you meet to take the challenge as well.

The home base for this during the month of April will be on the Talk2MorePeople Facebook Page. I will be posting videos there from England, Italy, Spain and Canada this month.
Go ahead! Print this wallet sized card, fill it out and enjoy the opportunities you create by meeting new people.
