30 Day Challenge

Here is a TED talk: 30 Day challenge. Basically the presentation is a by Google techie who has decided to try something new for 30 days. On this challenge he realizes that 30 days is just the right amount of time to add or subtract a habit in your life. Instead of months passing by they become memorable.
Well this is the perfect thing to start a new year by. So I encourage my fellow readers to try out like me this 30 day challenge. Sometimes the challenges we set ourselves are a bit too difficult but 30 days sounds easy.
I'm taking paper to pen or hand to keyboard to write down my 30 day challenges to make it more concrete:

1-Do 15 Suryanamaskars everyday for 30 days
2-Wake up at 7 am everyday for 30 days
3-Devote 2 hours a day to reading everyday for 30 days

Hope to hear your challenges

The Red car

I had to go to work yesterday, on a Saturday. Working on a Saturday is exceptional, this Saturday was an exception, I don't work on weekends. Normally a cab comes to pick me up but due to some error I was rostered on Sunday instead of Saturday. Never mind, I'll take an auto, so at noon I step out and walk 200 metres, but as there is no auto I keep walking on the busy road. It's winter, I'm covered head to toe with woolens. As I'm walking and notice a red car has slowed down near the pavement I'm walking on. Sharp as a knife I turn left into a dirt road calling a guard. The red car turns left with me. I take a quick double turn and land back on the main road where thank the heavens there is an autowallah dropping someone off, I sit in and don't discuss money and go off. The autowallah understandingly speeds up. I check the mirrors to see if the red car is following me and arrive safely at my destination. But I have to go back. Shit.
Shitty men in a shitty city.
