Stranger & Coffee Challenges

Business Insider published Why Everyone Should Purposely Sit In The Wrong Seat On An Airplane At Least Once, about Noah Kagan’s Stranger Challenge, which is to do something random with a stranger, and Coffee Challenge, described below.

“We have a thing called the Coffee Challenge,” Kagan tells James Altucher in a recent podcast. “You have to ask for 10% off at a coffee store. Any coffee store. Get a muffin, ask for 10% off. Most people will make an excuse. ‘Oh, I’ve already done sales for five years.’ ‘Oh, I’m not afraid of doing that.’ ‘Oh, I don’t need a discount, I have money.’ But if you go ahead and ask for 10% off coffee, I guarantee that you will learn something about yourself that will surprise you.”
