Day 2 of of 30 (Day 1 75 Hard Reloaded): Today I earned $200 in fake money, became a brand…and learned nothing in Python

Despite the crappiness of today, I am starting to see that I’m actually learning to be an entire human being.

The things I’m trying to learn-programming, investing, entrepreneurship…These things weren’t taught to me.

I learned “photosynthesis”

So, even though all of this is hard and over my head (but I’m picking up a little). It’s hopefully going somewhere.

Second, I made $200 in my paper trade.

Third, I was supposed to learn how to install a module in Python. I LEARNED NOTHING FROM TODAY’S LECTURE.

Fourth, I have redefined myself as a MORE entrepreneur (Multi-income online remote entrepreneur (You can read the story here)

Fifth, my body still feels weak but I did do a Madbarz workout and will try the rest. If I finish, it will be day 1 of 75 Hard.

Today is not a good day. I have been in back pain and a loss of energy ALL morning so much that I’ve been laying down for most of the day.

I am proceeding.

If I feel well enough to catch up with 75Hard, I will. If not, I will restart tomorrow.

The thing, I had made such a beautiful schedule for today.

Artist Date 3: Watch “Hacking Your Mind”(Lesson: Human Brains in Modern Societies are Stupid)

So, humans are stupid. I am stupid.

I thought this video would be about how to “make your brain smarter”, but it was actually about how stupid our brains are…and how politicians, marketers, etc. use this information on us.

The video showed that our brains have two primary modes of thought, “fast” and “slow”. (If you read “Thinking Fast and Slow”, you might be familiar. “Fast thinking” is the part of our brains that make split second decisions:

-Do I eat the chocolate cake or the apple?

-Is this person nice or mean?

-Is this person dangerous or friendly?

“Fast thinking” is what we use for things that require quick decisions like whether we should buy something RIGHT NOW, while tying our shoe, figuring out what to eat, etc. I

“Slow thinking” is the logical, rational part that we often associate with thinking….but it requires more energy….so our brains won’t use “slow thinking” unless we’re in a new situation or unless we consciously choose to.

The video showed how, in just about every situation…when we have limited time and a little bit of information we tend to choose “fast thinking”

…..when seeing a sticker on a used car at a dealership

…..when we’re hungry and see a Kit Kat bar near the check-out line

….when we see a picture of a horrific event vs the stats behind the event

…when we choose who is a better politician or someone who think might be a criminal

….when we have to choose between someone that looks like us vs someone else who didn’t

And this starts early. The scientists in the show were able to prove with 3-year olds that just putting on an orange or green-colored shirt made the children think people with the same color shirt were better…for no other reason than the color of the shirt.

(And don’t worry, the adults did the same…even when they thought they were “smart”.)

The video theorized that the reason we make these biases is because our brain is still hardwired for life as our earlier ancestors, where we lived in small tribal groups, had to eat everything we hunted on the same day, and had to rely on split decisions that could be life or death.

But we live in a global world with lots of people, have a lot of access to food and have to make split decisions, like “Do I skip this YouTube ad about doughnuts when I’m on a diet?”.

While the decisions aren’t life or death, our brain still act use the same fast vs slow thinking process with a bias toward “fast thinking” because we don’t have time and energy….and we tend to go with our “fast thinking” brain (“It’s just one ad about doughnuts, what could it hurt?”) versus the “slow-thinking” brain (“I should probably skip this ad on doughnuts” because it doesn’t help me.”)

Using what I learned from the book “Effortless” , this explains why it’s so easy for us (and I include myself) to do the wrong thing at the wrong time. It explains why I meant spend two hours nerding out versus sleep and get off track.

The key to improving your habits is making the “hard things that we want to get right” as easy as possible. So, instead of focusing on willpower alone, we should also focus on creating systems and situations that make it easier to say “yes”. It won’t guarantee you will always say “yes”, but it will increase the chances dramatically….and with that you can change your life.

…but only if you are aware and use the power of both “fast” and “slow” thinking rather than let marketers, politicians, etc. use that power against you

So, with that I’m going to take my fast-thinking, but dumb a** brain to sleep after I get “Thinking Fast and Slow” on my read list.

PS Updating Artist Date because I’ll be expanding into new areas…

Day 29 of of 30 (5 am club): Today is a horrible start, I installed Pandas (Python), and screwed up everything in life…but I’m going forward

Despite all of the optimistic stuff I posted yesterday, this morning is starting off like a horrible and complete screw up.

I did not get much sleep.

I missed all of “Hour of Power” except the reading.

I didn’t do any kettlebell or bodyweight work, no breathing yet, and no water yet.

I also felt pain yesterday, didn’t eat much at all, had caffeine, messed up with a client at work.

It was just a mess…especially when 75 Hard is just around the corner.

So today is a mostly “Off” day where I just do what I feel like while planning a high structured schedule for the next 30 days!

But still moving forward.

Day 28 of of 30 (5 am club): Reflection, Redirection, Rededication…48 hours and counting to 75 Hard

I will continue getting up. It may not always be at 5am exactly, but I’m OK with that. I will also continue the “Hour of Power” from 5 am club and the”60 Hour Student”. I also gained an interest in Wim Hof because of the 5am club, and will continue forward.

Going forward with this revolution of the 75 Hard (Phase 2), I am cautiously optimistic. In the first original 75-day installment of 75 Hard, I learned a lot more about my demons: distraction, lust, and sugar.

In the first 30-day installment, my nerve damage worsened which forced me to really re-evaluate everything I knew about health, fitness, and faith…but I learned to adapt.I learned that you can persevere.

And within that adaptation, I learned new possibilities: kettlebells, Wim Hof, deep breathing, visualization, Bob Proctor, manifestation, and entrepreneurship.

So, I go forward (in less than 48 hours), more aware of the boundaries and demons in my life as I go through the next installment of the 75-Hard program (48 hours and counting…)

These experiences have left me more respectful of time and my health. I am sharper, more adaptable, and more perseverant than ever.

Day 27 of of 30 (5 am club): The bitter-sweet taste of a 75-Hard Prep walk, Juggling kettlebells..3 days Before 75 Hard

Getting up at 5:30, felt better. It’s not 5am, but I gotta listen to my body.

I was planning my next steps with kettlebells…and ended up getting into kettlebell juglling. I start that after hitting day 60 until I get the second kettlebell, mace, and pullup bar.

And then there;s the chronic illness.

Despite all of the good things I’m achieving, my health is still ruining my life. I can do upper body stuff (kettlebells, pushups, etc.) but I’m starting to notice more that the nerve damage that was just in my leg is spreading upward. I can walk a little better, but it’s still uneven and unbalanced.

As I keep moving forward, this mysterious part is like gloomy shadow that never leaves.

Nevertheless, I have gained persistence from what I’ve been through so far. I finished the 45-minute walk

Day 26 of of 30 (5 am club): Adapting to a (potentially) chronic illness, motivation, Wim challenges, and I reached my first savings goal! (Yesterday!)

First, I got up late again. This is becoming a pattern that I think is not because of laziness (although that might play a part), but my body. I mean, fatigue. Part of the symptoms of sciatica (or whatever the heck I got) is that I can be tired…even I get a full 8 hours of sleep ( or more).

So, I’ve decided to give myself a little more than 8 hours. For now, I am moving wakeup time to 5:30.

The other thing was the emphasis on rest and adaptation. If I were not experiencing nerve damage, I would probably do running outside. As of right now, I can’t, so I walk. If needed, I take breaks.

I now listen to my body a lot more now than I used to.

This also leads to my next point about motivation.

I’ve been down about this myscterious chronic illness (currently diagnosed as chronic sciatica) for A LONG time. It has altered the way I move, my dreams, everything (and that’s just the symptoms I’m open to sharing!)

But, I’ve come to a point where I realize I have to create something within this boundary.

No, I cannot run like Usain Bolt or even a fast-moving grandma, but I can build up an awesome body, I can slow down the progression of sciatica through walking and lower leg/back rehab, I can create something.

It took a while to even consider that because sciatica and chronic illness (in general) had a hold on me. I don’t know if I can ever run with my future son. I don’t know if this will “chronic disease” will progress into a wheelchair or one day just go. (The doctor doesn’t even know).

I do know that I can use all of the wisdom I gained about eating better, moving better, Wim Hof to not live my life defeated….as many in my family already think I am.

Lastly, I reached my savings goal just like that! All I had to do was make an automatic 10% from my paycheck and it’s there!

5am Club

Hour of Power: Move-Missed Reflect-Completed (approximately) 10 minutes of box breathing and 5 minutes visualization Read-Finished skimming “Becoming a Supple Leopard” I will buy this book because there is just too much to learn. It inspired bracing practice (learning to sit and stand with better posture) and movement repair (Lacrosse ball/foam roller) and also got me more into functional/primal movement away from my earlier obsession with just doing a lot of pushups and situps and going nowhere. Working with kettlebells and simple basic movements, for me, has actually been effective .

Nex book is Movement: Functional Movement Systems. From Kelly Starrett, I learned the importance of screening, assessment, and repair. So now, instead of just trying to do a lot of reps, I’m actually looking at how I perform these exercises.

I will be skimming this book to decide if I want to buy and then going to “No Holds Barred Fighting: The Ultimate Guide to Conditioning: Elite Exercises and Training for NHB Competition and Total Fitness (No Holds Barred Fighting series). I want to focus on primal movements, combatives, weapons, and old-school fitness (kettlebells, etc.).

At some point, I know, I will need a mentor, but for now, I’m just dabbling through these books to pick up simple exercises I can do now until that time.

12 Week Year Goals Reloaded: Week 2 of 12

Target Date: November 11, 2021

Vision: I am a bald, fitter and healthier me with a new, responsive doctor. I am able to do at least 25 pushups, 10 pullup, a 2 minute plank, and walk up at least 25 minutes without a cane with ease. I am free from any of my past addictions (porn, fapping, procrastination, or crappy food). I have a foundation for savings (emergency, investment, and health) and my bills are fully automated so I don’t worry about them. I am in a new apartment, rebuilding my wardrobe with clothes that were designed with my brand’s logo with an established meditation routine and weekly retreat with God. I am reconnected with family and regularly give out surprises (gifts)

Tactics

Here’s the updates…I’m going to organize these as I gain clarity on it and use the organized updates as a check point to monitor my progress. I’ll be adding indicator shortly.

Body:

Health Repair:The doctor told me to call and I had my MRI,which is leading to another MRI. I set up a small amount to go from checking to a credit union account for saving. I added Wim Hof breathing and cold showers to the mix. I will slowly be moving into a Candida cleansinr routine which will include taking a probioitic and fish oil in the morning, replacing coffee with sugar with tea, possibly dry brushing, adding more herbs and spices. I can’t completely change my diet over night, but I can improve it more. Also will take a look at including movement cooldown after walks. Naps

Fitness: 75 Hard Phase 2 starts soon. Kettlebell/bodyweight with walks

Fitness Test will be done later today:

Pushup-14

Plank-1:04

Negative pullups-15

Appearance: Having started shaving, but 30-days challenge begins today(while prepping for a babership using The Cut app)

Sex: Only focusing here on fake/digital sex here. NATURAL SEX IS AWESOME! Currently on day 43 of NoFap & Day 102 of NoPorn

Career

Employee: 60-day max effort challenge (minimanl absences, max 401k, and max productivity…Still defining, but I have an idea

Gig: Do my best work and creating epic results at my current job Goal: earn a minimum of $50 through survey, software testing, writing, and content mills sites in the next 10 weeks. Current: $7 something

Freelance: No amount set here yet but I’m getting close. First, I need to revamp my profile (again!) to provide a simplified profile that doesn’t focus on the benefits to the customer. I will be focusing on cold email writing and (possibly customer service on weekends?), something I already do and need to refine. Portfolio goal is 100 cold emails within 30 days and will be used for prospecting

Store: My goal here is to create either a Shopify store that has everything I want in it or a print on demand store and a Shopify store. First step is to refresh myself on the basics of Shopify store and create a plan over the next 30 days that I will implement over the next 10 weeks.

Money

Save: $52.19 of $100

Invest: $58 of $100

Earn: $7 of $5 (I will be seriously updating this expctation once I get freelance set up

Move

-I’m going to do an impromptu plan created (just now!): 30-60-90 plan. At least 30 minutes per week removing stuff that can go (Swedish death cleaning), 60 minutes on apartment searching, and working on a small step for 90 days to improve my rental application (income, credit, etc)

Relationships

Weekly Retreat: This is an area that I have missed out on. I will make a better effort of having a a retreat. For now, I did decide to make it a digital retret (no phone or computer during that tme)

Family: Not sure what to do yet here. I knw what I envisioned, but not yet sure how I want to implement it.

Date: I’ve been so busy that I haven’t really worked in this area yet.

Artist Date: Started!

Spirit

Time with God (Prayer): This has been another area that has weakened when I changed my morning schedule to start getting up at 5am. I had a routine for prayer when I got up at 8am, but now it’s becoming hit or miss because I already have something in that slot.

Bible Reading: Finish Bible “Read Bible in a year” app. Day 266 of 365. I was ahead but I want to stay ahead. I used to read Bible and then prayer (for 10 minutes after I got up). I need to restart that.

Meditation: 1,834 out of 2,000 meditation sessions. 166 sessions to go.

Day 24 of 30 (5 am club): Wim Hof Exercises & Kelly Starrett’s Book Had Me Feeling Like Superman

First, I LOVED that line from the movie “Hobbs and Shaw”.

It inspired today.

But getting back to me, I had a few moments yesterday after the second run of Wim Hof breathing and cold shower where I didn’t feel pain and things in my body actually felt normal…even great.

Now the first time, I felt OK, but things quickly felt worse. This time, I actually felt full movement in legs and arms. No joke!

I am thinking of doing a mini-session each day.

Adding in information from Kelly Starett’s “Becoming a Supple Leopard” , I learned more about how I wrecked my body with horrible body postures and not paying attention to my body. I don’t know how much I can correct or fix, but it was fun to start thinking about the possibilities. I’ve been in some kind of pain for quite a while and the thought of being pain free (even awesome) was great.

5am Club

Hour of Power: Move-Half done. Since I don’t work today, scheduled to complete later today. I did do a quick 10-minute WOD Reflect-Half done-I did the box breathing (no instruction), but did not do visualization and affirmation Read-Caught up. “Becoming a Supple Leopard” Goal is to unlearn fitness and continue relearning functional fitness

60 Minute Student (30 Days of Python): Day 16 of 30. First, I didn’t realize that there was more the the Coursera Google IT Automation course than just ONE course. Second, I rolled everything into a 1 hour session, so I do one section of the first Coursera course, one section of the second Coursera course, and one section of the Free Code Camp. I will either be a Python expert or really confused in the next couple of weeks.

Traffic U: I am dropping this because I keep on forgetting this.

75 Hard Prep

(25 minutes Exercise): Day 10. Will schedule later today

(8 Critical Tasks) Listed, better because I aligned these goals with all of my other goals so what I do on a daily basis directly ties to my goal

(Workout B-Walk): Scheduled for later, my pain went into overtime yesterday so I will keep an eye on this. I will probably shorten the walk if things get bad or rest first and then walk

(Gallon of Water): Not even a liter yet

5 min Cold Shower/Wim Hof I will be doing Wim Hof and a cold shower after each walk

Progress Photo Done

Body

90 No Fapping Few hours from Day 44 no fapping. (Day 102 no porn). Littleover 24 hours from reaching Day 45 of 90.

60 Days Kettlebell : Day 52 of 60: Will do what I can

Money:

Employee: Will be doing a 60-day “max income” plan where I seek to gain as much income (meaning as little absences as possible…doctor exvepted) and max productivity and max 401K. After the 60 days we’ll seee

Gig: Total $7.19.

Freelancing: Did not finish profile yesterday, but I have time today. I separated this from gig because it’s a different approach than something like Mturk

High-Income Skill Development: Python– 1 hour Copywriting– Have to catch up here. The cold emails I write here will form the portfolio used for freelancing Strategy- This will focus on actually one of 2 goals, a print-on-demand store feature my brand (which doesn’t have a blog yet!) and a Shopify store featuring retro clothing. My goal is to use courses, a lot of Googling, and my nerdy brain to create a plan for the Shopify store then slowly start setting up the store (buying membership, etc.) after savings. Today will be 2 lessons on a Shopify POD course.

Save: Total: $51.20. Savings should be automated with next paycheck.

Invest: Totals: Real estate: $21.50 Stocks: $20 Getting ready to drop the micro-investing apps except to invest directly in the company (For example, owning Robinhood stock instead of tiny shares using Robinhood).I will also be doing P2P investing. P2P Lending: $26.92 This has actually been earning a 6% return ( I know it’s low but that’s MUCH better than a bank!) This is my tiny step into passive income/asset acquisition. This will be the fund I use to pay for future business ideas…rather than Google a bunch of random business ideas that pan out by the end of the day.

So yeah…
