A Simple Challenge… Or is it?!! : A colleague of mine offered a challenge which looked so childishly simple. I had to write 1 to 500 without a break. ( like this… 1,2,3,4….499,500). No stopping and no corrections. The bet was 500 bucks. I was game. I mean, who wouldn’t. Easy money. A fifth grade student can do this. Right? Yeah, I thought so too. So I started on the challenge. And failed. Five other people took the challenge and *all* failed. My friend was so confident that he dared anybody to take this up.
The combination of over confidence, fatigue, quirk in concentration and the sheer boredom from monotony gets to your nerve very fast. See if you can give it a shot. And if you succeed (touch your heart and be honest), let me know.
