Ubermensch Day #3: From Good To Great
Sunday is the lazy, do nothing day. With no real schedule. Read this book called Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t by Jim Collins that studies why some companies thrive while others die.
He talks about the 20 Miles March – a guy who marches 20 miles every everyday, then he reaches his goal for traveling 300 miles or so. Same principle applies to losing weight, like a fat chick hitting the gym everyday for an hour. (too bad most of them quit 2 weeks in. True story, bro)
Life is short. Will it be spent watching Football and playing video games, or will it be spent into doing something “great”. I ponder this. Indeed, life is about racing against time.
So far here are the daily habits:
- Read 30 pages per day. That’s over 10,950 pages every year. Or 39 books per year (assuming an average book is 275 pages). In 5 years time, that’s 195 books. Not bad. (Been reading on the kobo daily since April this year)
- Take 3 fish oil pills per day for breakfast. Good for the heart and brain. (Been doing this for the past year)
- Going to the gym 5 times per week, for 1 hour per day. (Been doing this for the past year)
- Work on building the online business (Sorely slacking in this area)
- Meditation, lucid dreaming daily
- Approach women and accosting - er, I mean, asking them out on dates
- Spending 10 minutes every night planning out the next day, next week and month.
- Spending 30 minutes every Sunday planning out the upcoming months and years
Becoming an ubermunsch is a fusion of intelligent and physique. Life is suffering. Either suffer from the pain of discipline, or suffer the pain of regret.
