Thought for the Day - Challenge Yourself

Need to find some inspiration to do some thing that you do not feel like doing? Need to do better than what you are doing? It only means that you are not being able to challenge yourself. When stuck in a rut and you want to get out - challenge yourself - and you will see yourself grow.

It is always the challenge that excites. Even as a leader we realise that people love challenges. Challenge them and see what they come up with. Similarly, challenge yourself and see what you are capable of doing. It gets your focus, your attention. It gets the adrenaline flowing.

As an example I must mention the experience I had at the airport the other day. Having time to kill I entered a cricket net which had a bowling machine that bowled 20 balls. I played desultorily and way below the seriousness with which I should have or could have played. While stepping out after an average performance I wondered why I was so casual about it. It struck me then that if the guy had a challenge, of not getting out, of scoring runs, or whatever, with some reward, I would have taken it up with all seriousness.It would have got me going.

Even as a business idea it should work I think. People love challenges. So challenge them and get the excitement going, Creates the buzz.
