The founder and CEO of Facebook set a goal to run a mile every day of 2016.
Sounds like a sidcha to me!
Detractors claim he’s not running every day or the whole mile or that it’s too polluted to be safe. At least he stated the intent.
I hope he keeps it up. Since he says he’s only doing it for the year, learning the concept of a sidcha will help him start another when he’s done running so he can keep up a sidcha practice even if he stops running.
Here he is running in Beijing:
What’s your sidcha?
EDIT: A reader responded “He better not miss a day, then he could miss two.”
It turns out that he responded to someone pointing out that 2016, being a leap year, has 366 days and he said he would run 365 days this year, â€œWe can take a day off.”
I would suggest otherwise. I’ve found this dictum motivates and simplifies:
It’s his life and he probably has personal trainers he pays to motivate him, but why rob yourself of developing as a person? Money doesn’t change that it feels good to grow.
