Posted on 15th October, 2017 | | 1723 Views | Me, Motivation, Self Development

I took up 4 challenges for the month of Oct’17.

Here is how I progressed in week 2.


Challenge # 1 :  I will call a friend every day

Done. I called 7 friends again in the last week. It is surprising how fast life has become that we are not able to keep up with the relationships we made I the past. I am enjoying the re-connect.


Challenge # 2 : I will write a blog every day

Done. I started off well but as the week progressed, it seemed like a struggle. The deadline was lingering on the mind. The words were not flowing. Let’s see how it shapes up next week.


Challenge # 3 :  I will watch a Ted Talk every day

Done. I watched 7 ted talks. Here is a list and link of the talks.

My learning in the 2nd week

The first week was easy. The 2nd was a little tough. It became a bit of monotonous. Some days I was excited. Some days I was not. I noticed when we do things as a target, the motivation drops. At the same time, it felt nice to complete the challenge.

Let’s see how the 3rd week goes.
