Some people never learn.
I'm one of those people. I'm going for try 3, and I'm 24 hours in. The difference is that this time I WILL succeed. Some changes :
I'm eating much healthier now
I'm eating after every nap
I'm sleeping with the lights dim
I'm doing 25 minutes naps
I'm slightly more awesome than before
If I'm not on it by the 28th, I lose $1500. And I like money.
I now know that by day 6, it will be gravy. 5 More to go, ladies!~WOO
I have video games.
Anyway... 3 or 4 naps down so far... no problems yet... but we all know how it goes by now.
So you are doing that sleep one does? Ah what's it called, the frequent naps never getting a full night's rest? I think that's quite sane actually. Some people don't need more than two hours sleep.
I've stopped counting exactly, but I'm around day 35 now.
How Steve Pavlina got on the schedule so quickly, I don't understand. I do understand why everyone gives up before they convert, though. It is hard. Especially that first week. I don't even think it's possible to get on it unless you refuse to even consider that you might fail. That's what I did this time, and it's made quite a difference.
Today we moved to Better Than Your Boyfriend, which required me to go through all of the old posts and edit them. At times it's easy to think that I'm not making much progress, but looking back at those old entries, It's like day and night (no pun intended).
I love to sleep. I've slept easily 10 hours on average my life so far. Even though I love sleep I realize one thing:
Needless sleep has easily been the most unproductive thing I’ve done in my life.
Oversleeping is horrible. For one I find sleeping more than 9 hours a day usually begets more sleep, making you actually feel drowsier the majority of the day even though you technically slept more than enough. Furthermore sleeping extra just takes up time. sleeping 10 hours a day as opposed to 6 or 7 means I’m not awake for a whopping 90-110 hours a month. This adds up really quickly. Those extra 3 hours could be used to learn a language, programming, watch a good movie or documentary, exercise etc. Imagine everyday you had 1 more hour to spend learning vocabulary or studying? Imagine everyday you had 1 more hour to come up with a strategy for your business?
