In 2014 I talked a lot of trash and I still do. Now that 1/4 of the year has passed since those lovely new years resolutions it’s time to take a hard look at the fucking results. Pun intended xD
1.Get in to non poker business. Make at least 1000€ in revenue. Make profit.
Got in to a non poker business. Have made 0€ in revenue. Have made a tiny loss. Maybe cocky to say but I am going to crush this goal. I only said 1000€ because I thought I would focus on some passive income shit. Not the case. This is active and this is hard (jobless) WORK.
2.Get 12 girls
So far I have had 4 so I’m on pace to get 16. I was a bit afraid that I would come back home and would regress back to the old habits of not stepping up and approaching the girls. Good news, I am still not a pussy 🙂
3. Don’t drink more than 4 servings of alcohol more than 12 times in 2015.
Had only 2 drunken nights, so I saved one for the future. I am going to be behind on this goal though because I am about to go to Estonia next weekend and I am going on a cruise the week after that.
Btw. This goal should have been that I can get drunk once per every girl. That would have been cooler. Maybe next year.
4.Improvement in my areas of interests (Learning, reading) – Read/listen 50 books.
I have read 18 books this year, on pace for 72 books this year. However getting to even 50 might be though since business and life are increasingly taking time out of my reading.
Learning is going good anyway. I have watched some programs that are supposed to help me crush life. And at least for now I am dedicating my Monday nights to my sales coach ranting about closing 😉
5.Using my time effectively. (Living life) – No more than 5 hours a week of bullshit TV. BS=Anything that is not aligned with values.
Well. This is one of those hard to measure ones. I haven’t played any video games and I am sure I haven’t watched more than couple hours of BS TV per week so in that sense I can say that time was well spent. However I can’t quite give myself full props on this since I haven’t been fully effective on my business execution.
6.Get a business mentor or join a business mastermind group.
This is the first goal that I completed! Hooray! I feel really good about this, it helps so much to be able to ask people whenever you have problems. And the group is really kicking me on the butt if I don’t execute.
7.Eating healthy – Have more consciousness of what I eat. Don’t eat junk foods more than once a week. Don’t buy chips, candy, chocolate <75%. Don’t eat more than 4 liters of ice-cream.
The only thing that has been my little weakness is my urge for late night kebabing. However I haven’t eaten out more than once a week. I had 1 ice-cream cone. Full points.
8. Achieve the bachelor’s degree in business.
Almost finished my thesis, 30 pages on the practices of human resources in small companies. It was so good my tutor wet herself when she read it.
I still have some courses that I need to pass in the autumn but right now I am exactly where I need to be in terms of this.
9.Exercising to have a healthy body – Exercise at least 3 times a week.
This is a hard one to judge. Despite what I said I didn’t exactly keep count. I’m right at the edge on this one so I’m going to give myself the green on this one since it’s within the margin of error.
10. Be more introspective and strict about skipping things to the future. Procrastinate less. You can reschedule to calendar once, but then YOU DO IT.
Maybe I have procrastinated little bit less than before but I still procrastinate a shitload when it comes down to doing my sales calls. It’s early to judge myself though, I am just getting started on building a really difficult habit.
11.Interesting life with a lot of rich experiences. (Travel) – Travel to a new country.
Nope. Made plans though. We shall see whether it happens.
12.Keeping a better track of my investments. Review my investments weekly. Mark down what is my net worth every weekend. Keep track of the change in % & €.
I did this for about a month. Then I got bored and lost the habit 😀 It has been great investing again. When it comes to stocks I seem to invincible. I have been running like GOD for 3 years straight.
13.Learn Spanish. Complete 2000XP points on Duolingo.
Nope. I am going to get on this in Q3 & Q4. 2000xp is a lot though, I might not seriously have time for that much. I got accepted to study in Leon Spain for the spring semester in 2016, that will motivate me to learn. Getting under to the dresses of all those Spanish senoritas.
14.Write 10000 words of business content on the blog.
Fuck this goal. I am not doing this.
Who cares about writing?
Executing is the thing that will change lives.
15.Find a cool girl that I love to hang out with that is a win-win for both.
I have been able to find some love but I have dated very very little. Maybe it just hasn’t been enough of a priority. I should have followed up more with the street girl that had some potential.
16.Developing a healthy social circle in Wasa. Getting connected with people who have a positive outlook. Hanging out with friends at least once a week. Having a good vibe within the group.
Well. Apart from the pussy, I can’t really say that I have any new friends.
Most my friends are quite positive though, so that’s awesome.
I have managed to not live on isolation and, have met up with at least someone every single week.
17.Make monthly goals. That I split to weekly steps. Prioritize.
Well. Not really. I hate committing to planning and I love to just wing it. Just see where the inspiration is any given day. I did have a goal of writing my thesis 3 X 3 hours a week and that worked out really well. My business mentor makes me have business goals every week but so far I have failed them miserably, we at a beginning on it though.
This was good list though. Without this I don’t think I would have got half the things done.
I guess it’s kinda what happens most of the time. The top goals are the ones more likely to get done and I don’t mind this. I would rather crush life on 9 goals than be mediocre on 17.
Right now my focus is on the business. In the words of my mentor:
You do this and when everybody else will be freezing their balls off in Finland
you will be on the beach of Thailand fucking Swedish girls.
That’s some motivation right there. Keep living life on the attack 😉by
