I’ve been looking back over some of my older posts and I realized that once again I’ve been trying to take on all of the aspects of my life- budget, job, food, exercise, mental health, relationships, etc. But I realized that this is all an ongoing thing for everyone. Perhaps I have less good habits in place than most people, but when you think of common new years resolutions or what you see in advertisements, everyone is trying to improve these things all the time. And my attempt at simplifying didn’t really work- when you think about it there’s no way it could have. Life is complex, and all the areas are tied together.
I’ve mentioned my Mindvalley quest before. The quest I’m doing is called Hero, Genius, Legend. It contains a lot of great insight and lessons from Robin Sharma, who coaches billionaire CEOs. As a result I’ve been working on creating some habits and routines, though some days I’m just too tired to do anything. But I still try to get up and do the 20 minutes of exercise, 20 minutes of journaling, and 20 minutes of learning that he recommends. And this has definitely had a positive impact on my days. I’ve been using an app called fabulous to help. I’ve modified the morning routine to make it work for me, and it’s really great at reminding me and tracking my progress. Currently this blog is serving as my journal from time to time. Eventually I think that will be evolving, as I would love to do the whole “make an income from your blog” thing. So we’ll see what happens.
