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).
On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL
I woke up at 4:30AM this morning, and went for a run in the dark and empty streets of Kuala Lumpur.
It's peaceful. I walked at the end of my run, and I could see delivery trucks getting set up to start the day. On my way back to the little place I'm staying, I picked up a coffee and some water. The first light of day was breaking over the city, and men were loading large stacks of newspapers onto the back of trucks.
14 hours later, I'm starting to get tired, even though it's only the early evening. Some part of me wants to sleep, but I'm in a highly creative state right now. Right now, I'm making all sorts of connections and I'm seeing things really clearly.
I just did an exceptionally good half-hour of work. I solved about five hours worth of bang-head-against-wall type problems with some efficient, elegant work. It flowed smoothly and naturally.
I'm tired. I want to sleep.
