Since the last few months (or maybe years), I’m feeling kinda “Not Awesome”.
My goals for life are big, but certain events have caused me to think negatively all the time. Many of you may have heard the phrase “Is the glass half empty or half full?“ – Well, right now I see the glass half empty all the time.
Finally, I figured what’s wrong – “Many Things”.
- I’ve not archived the goals which I set.
- I’m not that productive, how much I want to be.
- I don’t do all the things that I wanna to do every day.
- I don’t work out and most importantly – I still can’t forget certain events and people from the past.
We won’t be living forever. Moreover, this really makes me more pessimistic!
I have tried to change this a couple of times previously and every time I failed! Every time after a few days -I return to the same old rutine of unproductive, glass half empty seeing pessimistic boy.
(For me awesome simply means felling great … really i can’t fully express it, I love this word!)
So I thought … Let’s Change it. I will do this 30-day change, I will
try to change my entire routine and be a “glass half full guy.” I got inspiration for writing this public diary from Glen Allsop (He is one of best digital marketers in the world) and a 10th class girl who showed me her diary yesterday.
I bought sagarbasak.com maybe a year ago and right now I don’t have any plans to use this domain. So in this way, I will be also using this domain, that’s a good news too.
Anyhow, here’s my plan. Today is Friday, Nov 10, 2017, and the time is 12.13PM, from tomorrow I will weak up at 5 AM no matter what. I will be posting a screenshot of the time I weak up, just like Glen Allsop did on his 30-day challenge.
After waking up I will run or work out for a minimum of 20 min and then take a cold shower. After that, I will work/read the most important job that needs to be done. I am a digital marketer, so most of the times I only need my MacBook with a good Internet connection to work.
After that, I may go to college or do something else. Here are a few more things that I will be doing every day for the next 30 days –
- Meditate – Though I have watched many youtube videos where people call meditation is something that everyone should do, I even tried it a few times. But I still kinda don’t like it. But I will meditate every day.. right after I weak up.
- Write at least 1000 Words per day – I run this tech blog so I write articles anyway but being persistence is the thing that I need to do.
- Read both my college books and the books which I am buying from last few months very enthusiastically after watching for a few YouTube videos of book summaries. Also, I used to love math but i don’t study it that much now, Which is seriously sad.
- Practice Guitar Every Single Day – This one is seriously Sad I own my guitar from last 5-6 years but I am still a newbie at guitar. In all these years I only attended 2 teachers (one for 1 day and another one for 3 days I think!), Which this much practice it’s not a surprise that I’m not that good at guitar.
- Don’t eat Fast Food
- Won’t miss any Privet Coaching Dates (I don’t know if I’m writing it in the correct way) – I am not a regular student … Sometimes I can’t weak up yearly and sometimes I don’t remember the dates so I miss coaching which sucks. Gotta change it … I will be using the Callender App to fix this. PS. Also, i will attend all the Practical Classes.
- I won’t be using YouTube.com at all! – Most of the people waste their time on Facebook or WhatsApp but for me, YouTube is the main villain! Seriously I waste quite a huge amount of time on YouTube.
- I won’t be using my Headphone’s for 30 day’s unless I need to make a Skype call.
So those are the things that I plan to do. This post is pretty big but the next one won’t be … I will be writing a post every day for the next 30 days and I will be brutally honest about what I did.
Now I will just copy-paste the last few paragraphs from glesnallsopp.com (because these words pretty much exactly what I would like to say, and also I need to go somewhere now!)
I know I’ll be groggy and uncomfortable when I wake up at 5am tomorrow, but I will. I’m writing this to hold myself accountable to have a public record of my journey.
I think it would be pretty pathetic if I couldn’t make it to 30 days in the eye of a casual reader so that’s some motivation for me as well.
Wherever in my journey you found this article – I may just have started or the challenge is long-finished – I hope to inspire you to try your own 30-day challenge to test your own limitations and see how you can improve your own life.
After all, we all seem to act like we’ll live forever, but one day our family and friends will receive a call which shows that simply isn’t true.
I have big goals for this life of mine, and hope this new challenge – one which many successful and inspiring people now call a habit – will help me to achieve them while I still can.
