5/15/2019 Wednesday Weekly

Another week down.
Good - Habits are good. Good nutrition and exercise.

Bad - Studying on the LSAT has stagnated. I’m feeling a bit too confident. Logic Games are solvable but I’m slow. Will be taking a diagnostic test on Friday to see where I'm currently at.

Ugly - Getting a case of the what-to-dos. I know that focus is what brings success, but focus seems to be in short supply.

5/8/2019 Wednesday Weekly

Another week down.
Good - Settling into my new place just fine. Life is good.

Bad - Nutrition, eating too much sugar. I’ve been writing a new book about what parents won’t tell their teenage kids. It’s different but I have two nephews who it’s dedicated for so I’m working through the temporary rough patch.

Ugly - Being distracted living with other people, still mostly doing my habits, but it’s getting tougher to stay focused. If it continues I’ll have to reevaluate my goals.

5/1/2019 Wednesday Weekly

Another week down.
Good - Came back to San Antonio, staying with some awesome friends. On my stuff, studying for the LSAT. Tracking calories. Being productive.

Bad - The heat that’s coming.

Ugly - See Bad.

Another week down.
Good - Almost everything. Really good week. Finished Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead, what a tremendous book. Listening to Andy Frisella, starting the #75Hard challenge. Should be good. I'm still on a low information diet, thank you Tim Ferriss. Learning to use Calibre, ebooks soon.

Bad - Might have some issues with binge eating, reading up on it and seeing what I can do about it.

Ugly -  Housing prices in Los Angeles. I’ll see you soon San Antonio.

4/10/2019 Wednesday Weekly

Another week down.
Good - Gym every day. Writing goals were hit. Read The Effective Executive. ⅔ of the way done with The Fountainhead. Chipping away at Better than Before and just started The One Thing. Tracked my time for the whole week in six-minute increments, the results were amazing. Zero TV time, I’m proud of that. I read a whole lot as well.

Bad - Tracking calories and although I’m staying in the 1500-2000 range, I’ve had a bit more sugar than I should so I’ll work on that.

Ugly - No movement on the book publishing. My schedule failed me. I’m going to now spend time on why that’s happening and have a feeling it has to do with purpose.

4/3/2019 Wednesday Weekly

Another week down.
Good: I hit the gym every day. I tracked my time and the truth was eye-opening. I read four books. 168 Hours. Deep Work. The Four Hour Work Week. What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast. Five hours of podcasts and hit my daily targets of 300 words for my books and 150 words for my blog. A good week overall, spent time with family as well.

Bad - I watched 17 hours of TV. That’s a lot of South Park. However, I took it off the DVR and that won’t be happening again next week.

Ugly - no progress in publishing an ebook. I don’t know what’s slowing me down or holding me back. I just get a case of the fuck its whenever it’s time to dive into it. I’ve scheduled some time for next week, a lot of progress will be had.

Another week down. Progress has begun on learning how to publish ebooks. That’s a positive but there seems to be a little more than expected. I’ve begun to reread The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss and I’m so glad I did. If you’ve never read it, read it. I’m sure you can find it free online somewhere. My writing, 150 words per day for posts and 300 words for books is happening.

Consistency is key.

Currently reading 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think by Laura Vanderkam and started tracking my time. If any of you have ever tracked your time, I wish you would have told me about it. I’m only three days into it and will probably stop after a week, but it has been keeping me laser focused. I have a color-coded system and if anyone wants to see how I’m doing it feel free to reach out.

3/20/2019 Wednesday Weekly

Another week down. Minus not getting any progress on learning how to publish ebooks done, it’s been a great week. I hit my daily targets and my nutrition has been acceptable. One a Day to Learn About Money is coming along faster than expected, money isn’t that complicated. I just listened to Tony Robbins’ new book, and it was about 8-10 hours. No reason for all that and there was nothing about budgeting or debt. To summarize it in half a sentence, invest for the future in an index fund, be emotionless.

Also read the Happiness Advantage, a great read. Lots of nuggets of wisdom in there. Your mindset and outlook matter more than what happens. If something isn’t going to matter in a year, why stress over it today? Handle it and move on. Also, happiness comes before success, not the other way around, act accordingly.

My blog posts are currently on a personal improvement kick, we’ll see where that goes.

3/13/2019 Wednesday Weekly

Another week down. My writing is coming along, 300 words for a book and 150 words for my posts every day. I finished One Day to Lose the Fat, just need final touches and people to read it and give me feedback. Still working on getting my books published electronically and posted online, we’re weeks away, not months, that’s as specific as I can be right now. Blog posts will be coming shortly. I’ve decided to create an 8 or so minute long podcast as well because I like the idea of having 5 minute long audio clips out there when listened to at 1.5x speed. I didn’t have a good idea of what subjects to cover for the podcast however, with the suggestion from my younger brother, Michael, I’ll be using the blog posts as inspiration. Each blog post will have its own short podcast to expand on what I've written. Thanks, Michael. The podcasts may take a little more time to create and post, thanks for your patience.
