In one my early posts, New Year Resolutions, I had postulated that when we make too many resolutions on the new year day, they are bound to fail. A better option is to make a new resolution every month and then follow it diligently for the whole month. That way, it becomes a habit and hence difficult to break.
I believe in practicing what I preach.
So on 1st January, I made a resolution to write a blog post everyday. And by now, as I wrote in yesterday’s post, it has become a part of my day.
Today is 1st February and the time to make another resolution. I am making a very unusual resolution today.
In today’s hectic life, time is the commodity which is most short in supply. We barely have time to do our regular stuff. Finding time for exercising is almost impossible. What if I could find a way to easily sneak in exercise without having to specially make time for it? Believe it or not. I found a way.
We moved to our new office yesterday. The office is on 11th floor of the Platinum Techno Park in Vashi. The building also has two parking levels. So our office is actually on 13th floor.
The building has 4 lifts.
Including the waiting time it takes between 5 to 7 minutes to reach the office using a lift.
I made a resolution to walk up the staircase everyday. I park the car in the basement. So I need to climb a total of 14 levels. Each level has 23-24 steps. So I need to climb approximately 325 steps.
I did it today. It took me approximately 7 minutes. I had to stop twice while climbing to catch my breath. I am sure, I will improve my stamina as I continue. I want to make sure that I keep my resolution and hence as I said in this post, I am making a public commitment about this resolution.
