Today I had a very productive day. I woke up at 4.00 am, as I couldn't sleep. Then I wrote my newspaper column. I write a regular column in the Financial Chronicle, and it appears on Saturdays. I have to submit it on Wednesday. Most of the time, I file it by Tuesday evening.
Last Saturday I had written on growing old.
Today when I told my daughter that I am starting my blog marathon, she said 'Haven't you done so many of them? Why do you do it?'
I told her that I have done one every year, since 2010! I do it as it is a HUGE challenge to write a new post everyday, despite everything else that is going on in your life. I told her that no matter what your job is, or what your occupation is, it is important to challenge yourself, to push the boundaries, to be able to grow.
You never know what you are capable of, till you push the boundaries. Decide on one thing today--that you will undertake one task, which you have been meaning to do but kept putting off, and that you will do it every single day, for whole of this month. It can be anything! Even a simple thing like tidying a bedside drawer. Or going for a walk daily. Or giving up sugar to lose weight. Or giving up alcohol. Or writing a journal. Absolutely anything you want to do, but haven't done yet. NOW is a good time to start! New month. New energies. Push your Boundaries.
Are you ready to accept the challenge?
If you are, do join me.
I will be blogging every day. You can come here and leave a comment, and tell me in my comment box, how you fared with your own challenge that you set yourself.
And yes, one more request. When I write a novel, or a newspaper column, I get paid. On my blog, I do it simply to connect with you! My payment here is the comments you leave me :)
Not kidding. Like any blogger, I do feel very happy to read the comments. It's always nice when the readers say something back. So do leave a comment in my comment box.
Will see you tomorrow.
Lots of love!
