I’m gonna change.
This is a goal setting lifestyle report. I’m setting long term concrete goals for my 7 beneficial habits, to be achieved by a year from now. I aim to reach these goals by implementing specific behaviours for a trial period, then continuing them if they work for me.
Here are my goals for each of the 7 beneficial habits, to be achieved by July 11th 2013
My plan for this simple – got to bed progressively earlier over time, nap and meditate.
Work (non paid work and GTD)
Gonna have to turn up and work hard to get 70%, but I’m determined not to have a repeat of this year. The blog promotion will be achieved by writing regularly and promoting my blog in a way that still contributes to the manosphere, the other 3 will just take some serious band hustle.
I have a reading list I’m burning through, just finished Sex 3.0 and about to start 4 hour body.
The first 2 will be achieved by taking all the over time I can get my hands on over summer, combined with student finance and careful budgeting. The third will be achieved through the development of passive income businesses, affilate marketing and whatever else I may learn through the year.
The first will either be done with those android apps, or by adding a rep each day – I’ll dabble with both until I find something that fits. I’m restarting CC from the beginning. I’ll be experimenting with various diet and supplementation changes to succeed with 3 and 4. Goal 5 will be down to gradually more frequent walks and some form of high intensity cardio once a week, as well as reduced smoking and drinking and a paleo diet.
The former requires the maintenance of my current unfenced relationships, the latter requires, to be blunt, going out more.
This will be achieved by gradually increasing the amount of time devoted to it, and doing it first thing every morning.
Reading through, it is pretty obvious that this is a grand undertaking, and most well versed in self-dev know that taking on too many changes at once can be disastrous. My solution – only 1 change in each area every 2 weeks. For example, the first set of changes could be napping, writing a batch of guest posts, reading 1 chapter per day, hounding work for overtime, start re-using the calisthenics android apps, making sure to work on one prospect each day and writing for half an hour each day. Once these have been successfully maintained for 2 weeks, they can either be dropped if they don’t work, or kept and added to if they do. This spreading out of change means that later on the original changes seem like they were always there.
And now the final piece of the puzzle – I’ve made a tumblr to track all this. The tumblr will detail new goals specifically, and publish daily progress reports. This means that the only progress tracking of mine still on this site will be the lifestyle reports. Is daily reporting on goal progress obsessive and anal? Yes. But I need the accountability, and don’t want to clog up this site.
So yeah, basically, follow me on tumblr to give me moral support or talk shit at me.
