Alarm Substitute-

So I was in Tokyo recently and for some reason the hotel ran out of converters for phone chargers. Now - since I was on roaming and not that anybody calls me, the phone itself wasn't that important but what it did serve a purpose for was the alarm in the morning! Given I had meetings in the morning, I couldn't really afford to get late - I went back to basics.

Long time back, when I was a kid, I had a massive problem of not being able to get up in the morning. My mom used to wake me up with great difficulty and this went on till as late as my under grad days. I literally couldn't hear alarms - no matter how loud they were or how many were set. Multiple alarms were tried - they came and they went but I just couldn't get up! She then gave me her secret tip. Now I will warn you that this might sound silly or attempt at a joke or just plain frivolous BUT this is anything but that. She told me if you just talk to your pillow and tell it that you need to get up by such and such time, the pillow will 100% nudge you at that exact time for that fleeting moment and that really tiny winy quick window will exist when you will open your eyes at the very time you wanted to wake up. Now it is really up to you after that whether you go back to sleep or you don't act upon it because this trick doesn't have a "snooze" option.

I did try this in Tokyo, it worked. It was magical. 6:30 AM bang, i was up! This works. Try it. I can guarantee this works. For the smart a$$es who have the question that what do we do if we don't use a pillow - I don't know, go figure it out!
