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.
How to speak so that people want to listen (09:54)
Brain Magic (19:46)
Less stuff, more happiness (5:42)
The danger of a single story (18:43)
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Why jobs of the future won’t feel like work (10:06)
3 fears about screen time for kids — and why they’re not true (11:51)
The revolutionary power of diverse thought (21:58)
Challenge # 4 : I will google about a country every day
Done. I googled 7 different countries. There is so much to know about so many countries. Here is the list of countries I read about.
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.
