So here's a weird one for you...
I've decided to cut out cheat naps. I don't think they help, and I can stand cutting them out.
4:25am - woke up from my 4:00 nap
7:00am - feeling pretty sleepy, go to sleep for my nap
7:25am - wake up feeling like a zombie
10:45 - find myself sitting in my office with nothing on the screen, and think "what the hell did I just do for the past three hours". I literally don't know.
I checked my motion detector logs, and it looks like I walked around the living room and kitchen, but spent most of my time in the office. I didn't go back to sleep in the bed at all. The log says I took a shower around 7:30. I vaguely remember that. The aquarium light is on now... I kinda remember that. I have a nearly completed bowl of cereal sitting to my left.
Maybe I fell asleep around 9:30 while sitting up... after that time there's no walks through the living room. I don't remember any sort of wake up though. Maybe I was just in a trance and passed the time. I really have no idea, but it's weird. Time for my 11, now.
I haven't taken a nap since my last update, but I wrote a huge long motivational letter to myself. Here it is :
Dear Ty :
Hey man. Look, I know it's probably REALLY hard for you to stick to the sleep diet right now, but PLEASE PUSH THROUGH FOR ME. I've put some serious time and have gotten you most of the way there. You're doing the hard part now, but you can make it!
Just think about how great it's going to be in just a day or two! You will never sleep a full night again! The power is going to be amazing! You're going to start your new business! How fun will that be?? With all this free time, you can make it to a million by 25. I know you can. You've been hustling and that's awesome
I can't wait to tell people 'Actually, I don't sleep.'. THIS IS SO TY! You are going to make it and be a badass. It will help with everything' you will be a mini celebrity just for this if you play it correctly.
It's amazing how good best practices are, and it's sadly too easy to get away from them. I planned Day 33 the night before:
1. Plan Mongolia logistics 2. Shopify 3. Review goals 4. Do weekly review, set tasks for next M-F 5. Blog post 6. Gym 7. Reading
Note it was only 7 objectives, and only 3 of them were "hard" or otherwise not automatic. That works much better -- trying to go overboard on too many things often leads to none of them getting done. Here's how the day went --
Awake: 10:15AM (8 hours)
1:15PM: Set all travel plans for Mongolia, bought flights, figured out train timetables, etc. (180 travel-planning)
