Life is tiring and chaotic.
People wake up, watch the local news, eat a quick breakfast (or none at all) before commuting to work. Some stoically drive to work, while others race to work, running over an old lady along the way.
STOP! Relax. Feel the morning breeze through your big, low hanging testicles.
It’s time to have an amazing morning. The kind of morning you wished you had more. Get your morning off to a good start and you’ll build momentum to have a good, productive day.
The morning routine of an uber human.
15 minutes of meditation a day, keeps the demon away
Have you ever had a gun pointed to your head and some guy threatened to blow your head off? I had.
Reality seem different – time slowed down, every thing in the environment was magnified and thoughts didn’t enter my mind. At that moment, I was truly alive – I was aware.
To be aware, is to be human. We need to practice awareness – and the first step is meditation.
At it’s core, meditation is about awareness.
Instead of going through life as a zombie, we’re conscious of the present moment.
I’m aware that I’m breathing manually. I’m aware that I scratched my ass 3 times during sitting meditation. I’m aware that she has big brown nipples, yum yum.
Popular among middle class white people, meditation is about reducing stress.
Deeper into the rabbit hole, meditation is about figuring out the meaning of life and death.
Instead of having an idea of reality – meditation helps us know reality. It’s the difference between reading a book on swimming and jumping into the sea, swimming for dear life.
15 minutes every morning adds up. According to my meditation app, I meditated for 30 hours so far.
Meditate your way to enlightenment, comrade.
If it’s a life worth living, it’s worth writing down
Imagine big events in your life – for some, it’s his first honey moon or drunken sex with a lady boy in Thailand.
Now you’re 75 years old and you read your journal entry from 50 years ago. Your mind is blown.
Not sure what to write? Suggestions:
- what inspires you?
- what is your ideal life?
- what are you grateful for?
- what’s bothering you in life?
- what’s your plan for next year?
- what needs to get done in your life?
- what’s your biggest fear?
- what do you think of your life?
- what did you do yesterday?
Personally, I write on the computer. I recommend Red Note Journal since it’s available for free on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Writing brings clarity. Clarity for your thoughts, past memories and future hopes.
Don’t let your life be forgotten – write down your hopes, dreams and triumphs.
Years from now, reading back to your old notes, you’ll be glad you did (I have been writing every day on my journal for the past 5 years)
If it’s a life worth living, it’s a life worth writing down.
The biggest breakfast mistake most people make
- Not eating at all and later snacking on junk food at work
- Shitty breakfast full of salt, fat and sugar (eggs, toast with jam, sausages, hash brown, concentrated orange juice. This breakfast was good back when people actually did labor)
Many years ago, I had an 18 years old chubby girlfriend who had a double chin.
Her hobby was eating fried bacon for breakfast. I told her to eat more healthy.
“No, you’re not my boss and you can’t make me. Beside, I grew up that way” she leered.
I recently saw a picture of her and she grew horizontally, about 65 lbs worth.
This is not to demean her.
She’s fat because she failed to see the error in judgement – eating bacon every day is a lot of bacon in 365 days (sometimes she would skip breakfast to “lose weight” only to eat more bacon the next morning)
Nowadays I eat two small breakfasts – oatmeal with fruits. And chicken / eggs with vegetables.
According to scientists, the healthiest diet in the world: mediterranean diet.
Do your biggest goal – just 25 minutes
Aggressively pursue your goals, even if it’s a mere 25 minutes each morning. You know how I build this blog? You guessed it – 25 minutes at a time.
The best productivity “trick” of them all: Pomodoro Technique. You set your timer for 25 minutes and do your task without multi-tasking or distraction. Then you get a 5 minutes break and repeat the work again.
My favorite place to work without distraction is the kitchen table. I turn off my phone and no distraction on the Internet.
Coffee shop is another good place to work. I’m 50/50 on music – I listen to 1 song on loop or I don’t listen to anything at all.
If I don’t feel like writing, I still do it anyways.
I tell my mind “just 25 minutes, then you can go look at supple tits on the Internet.” Similar to sex, when I write I want to write more.
Similar to multi-millionaire who have enough to retire but they can’t stop – there is always the next million to make.
“Whatever state your mind is in, ignore it. Think only of cutting,” said Miyamoto Musashi, the samurai who wrote “The Book of Five Rings”.
Here is another passage from this awesome book: “… you ought not to forget to stab at the face. You must pursue the value of this technique through training.”
Ignore your mind and take action.
The modern life is hectic – it’s time to aggressively carve out time
I know – people feel tired at the end of the day. They finished work, come home in the evening and desperately want to relax and sleep. Tomorrow is another battle at work.
… yet, the uber human walks the extra 10 miles, every day.
I feel tired as shit writing this blog post but here I am, writing this at midnight before going to bed.
It’s easy to let our dreams die – “I don’t have any energy left to do anything! I’ll just do it tomorrow,” the mind rationalize.
Tomorrow turns into next week and next week turns into next year. Then the person dies, along with his hope and dreams.
Don’t let that be you. Inch by inch, step by step, climb to the fucking top. Who’s awesome? You’re awesome.
See you next week.
