Ubermensch Day #5: Gradual Improvement
Wake up in the morning at noon, failed polyphasic sleeping schedule, but I slept 1 hour less (7 hours) then minimum usual. Gradually adapting to a polyphasic sleeping schedule (4 hours total)
Went to the gym
Read 40 pages of “Good To Great” by Jim Collins
Consumed fish oil
2 episodes of Anime (40 mins)
My day is just half way through, I still need to do online marketing and learn a foreign language (currently Korean). Then lucid dream.
Principle Of 20 Miles March (or sustained progress)
-> For sleeping: Sleep for 8 hours per day, the next 50 years you’ll spend 146000 hours sleeping, or 6083 full days sleeping. If you sleep for 4 hours per day using Everyday Man sleep schedule, you’ll sleep 73000 hours sleeping over the span of 50 years. Or 3041 days. In essence, you “gained” an extra 3042 days over the span of 50 years if you sleep 4 hours per day.
-> For reading: 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)
-> For fitness: Going to the gym 1 hour per day. Gaining 2 pounds of muscles per month. Doesn’t sound much but within a year’s time that’s 24 pounds of muscles. (Likewise, for weight loss)
-> For media: 2 episodes is roughly 40 minutes. That’s 20 episodes in 10 days. Every 12 days that’s an anime series completion.
Lessons learned from the book “Time Management Of the World Class”. Have goals and visions for the next 6 months, year, 5 years, and 60 years ahead into the future. Whoa.
My personal journal have reached 86, 336 words. An average 240 page fiction novel contains 40k words.
Up coming things to write about:
My online marketing adventure, AKA “make money while you sleep”.
Edit: Just learned an hour of Korean, I find that using google docs is immensely helpful to keeping track of what I learned. Here is the simple format I’m using:
Learn foreign language
