My Self Growth Experiments

This is the place where I document the journey of my self growth and share what I learn through these experiments with you so that you can also try some of these. I’ll also be annoucing public experiments from time to time where You and I can participate together.

Why These Experiments?

All of my growth has come from trying new things in life.

Ideas can be useful and motivate us, but without trying out these ideas we won’t know if they work. Even if ideas are time-tested without applying them in our lives we won’t see any improvements. That’s why these experiments.

Sharing the results forces me to take the experience seriously. And, by sharing my observations, I hope that you’ll able to try these ideas and experiments yourself.

Mostly, I share the results of the experiments after completing them. But from time to time, I’ll announce public experiments and invite you to join to try a new experiment with me.

I would love to hear about your current or past experiments where you have tried implementing a new idea in your life.

The Outreach Challenge [March 2019]

  • I did it during March 2019.
  • What? I believe that business and personal growth comes by connecting with the community. That’s why in March I decided to reach out to 21 past and new business partners to explore the possibility of doing business again. I am not a natural at cold outreach but a lot of good has come to me through cold outreach. So I decided to give it a shot again.

Show Up On Social Media Challenge [Feb 2019] – Updated with March Results

  • Ongoing. I started it during February 2019 but kept on with it through March also.
