How do you feel when you stumble upon something remarkable that makes you sit back and think?
Do you feel fortunate, thankful.. Inspired? Does it suddenly ignite that “Aha!” moment inside your head when you think – “Geez, That’s what I was subconsciously looking for!”..
Do you wish you had known that earlier, so that it could have grown to help you do what you’ve always wanted?
For a while now, I have been observing these memes.. how they develop like tiny droplets and gradually create ripples that grow into giant waves. Yes, I have been procrastinating too (which is why you haven’t heard from me since a while now), and wallowing in happy unhurried explorations on the Internet…
Sigh!.. Drastic situations call for drastic measures. So to push out of my own contended bubble, I have come up with this personal 10 week challenge which will jazz up and swing me into action. The rules go like this: Every week from now, I will post about a life changing Idea which has influenced the way I think (and could probably change yours!)
Why 10 weeks? Well 10 is a nice and even and round number, sort of official looking like the 10 commandments. And I’m hoping that in this infinite universe of awesome ideas floating around, I can dig out 10 unique ones which will make our lives richer..
So, what exactly are these life-changing ideas? My own definition goes like this.
A life changing Idea is:
- Something that transforms the way you think about life
- Challenges your regular go-to approach
- Helps you gain insights you would otherwise have missed.
Frankly, I haven’t thought about all of them yet, but am hoping this quest will make me discover many on the way. And yes, John Steinbeck had better be right when he said – “Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen”!!
So without any delay, let’s begin with Idea #1: Start your day like a Rock star!
