Waste Time on Improving Yourself

Today is about working hard. 
Normally, I go back and forth about working hard. Some days I’m a champ, and a lot of days I’m a total loser. Today, I feel fired up. This may be related to the fact that recent days have been more on the loser side. I started the day today with some Wim Hof breathing techniques. Then a Wim Hof cold shower. Now I feel fucking jazzed!

Ok, some advice.

My advice for someone today would be: realize that you have power. Realize that you have the power to mold your life. You have the power to change your world. This is a combo of a few different components. Part of it is the hippy dippy “believe in yourself” crap, and part of it is practical tools that you can use to actually improve your life and the life of those around you.

I’ve realized recently that I’m special. I really do have something unique to offer this world. Now don’t get too mean on me calling me vain, because part of this message I’m bringing today is a message that you have great power too.

I see the world in a unique way, and I have a unique toolset, or skill set to be able to utilize my unique vision.

Today’s piece of advice: waste time on things that improve yourself. By this I mean meditation, exercise, walks, journaling, things like that. I say waste time, because for me, that’s always been the struggle. When I wake up, can I afford to spend 30 minutes meditating? I need to get to work, I need to start doing some work. But the truth is, for me at least, when I’m off, like when I’m mentally or physically off, my productivity can go to shit. When I’m having an off day, I can stare at a computer screen for two hours and not do anything useful or productive. Now do the math, and instead, if I had done 30 minutes of meditation in the morning and that saved me the two hours of nonsense during the day, I would still technically be up one and a half hours.

So that’s my challenge— tomorrow, waste time on something that improves your body or your state of mind. Then report back here to let me know how it went.
