30 Day Challenges


I first came to know about the '30 day challenges' from Matt's Blog. Matt is a Googler and the guy behind Google's Webspam team. I have been following his blog for quite some time now and I came across his 30 days series of blog posts.
30 days is enough time to build a habit. However, I'd read somewhere that if you do a task for 21 days continuously, then it becomes a habit. I don't know how did they calculate exactly 21 days.

So I've decided to try the same for 30 days. The days are going to pass, whether to try something new or not. 30 days will make a month and many such months will make a year and finally one day you'll die. Then why not try something new, something good, something innovative for the next 30 days. If you like it, you can continue. If you don't, nobody will force you.

My 30 day challenge is to write at least a page everyday in my diary (and upload it to the blog, if possible). Thus, this post today, makes me complete my 1st day of my 30 day challenge.

Other 30 day challenges I would like to try :
  • Read at least 30 pages everyday.
  • Get up early at 5'o clock and try doing yoga or go for a walk.
So what are you thinking to do for the next 30 days? And here's the inspiring video of Matt Cutts on 30 day challenges.

We Have Lost Touch With Humanity

I was reading Robin Sharma's - "Who Will Cry When You Die?" . Love reading the book because I can start reading from any page. And each small lesson of these little book provides food for thought. I read this book whenever I'm short of time, but want to read. It is great. A small excerpt from the very first lesson of the book: We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy, but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library. We have e-mail, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity. We have lost touch with our purpose. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most. Isn't it worth pondering? We're busy checking our phones and emails every 5 minutes but we forget to check our purpose, our goals and our family members. We continuously try to refresh our news feed on Facebook

However, it's a different story that I'm running less and walking more. But the important thing is, the needle is moving. Apart from running, have also started doing a few stretching and upper-body exercises . My initial goal is to complete 5 km run. Became member of Central Library, Gandhinagar and read 2-3 books namely, 1. The Palace of Illusions 2. Curfewed Night and currently reading Akoopar (Gujarati). In between I also read Chetan Bhagat's The Girl in Room 105 Rudraraj and Rivanshi are not here in Gandhinagar. So I can engage myself in Running and Reading.
