Ubermensch Day #50: A New Meaning (Saturday)
Meditate like a monk:
meditated for 7 minutes. (total accumulated time: 93 minutes). The time flew by really, really fast - as if 1 minute passed. This means, my body is getting used to sitting meditation. However, it also means my mind is too clouded - or does it? I need to consult the monk at the Zen center for guidance. Exercise like a War God:
Marched to the gym on a Saturday morning (10:00 AM). I need to sweat the alcohol out from yesterday, so I squat, bench press and dead lift like a boss, with very little break in between - like a speed demon. For that brief moment in time, nothing matters but lifting the weight. Put it up, put it down. Pose in the mirror like a boss. Listen to self improvement audio (15 minutes) while doing yoga stretches:
Spent 1.8 hours watching and taking notes on affiliate marketing. I'm at the link building section, pretty stoke for this. (Progress: almost done / 5+ hours, 38/42 videos)
What I learned today:
- How to "steal" competitor links using scrape box and reverse engineering their link building campaign
- Article marketing for links
- RSS site submission for links
- Commenting for links
- Links networking for links
I have perhaps 6 or more videos until I'm finish this course, can't wait. Read a fascinating book:
Read 25 pages of "What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else" by Geoffrey Colvin (Progress: 85/208 pages – physical book page count: 240).
In this part, he discuss the components of deliberate practice. It is:
1. It's designed specifically to improve performance
2. It can be repeated alot
3. feedback on results is continuously available
4. It isnt much fun
Gee, nice to know Mr. Colvin. I'm excited to read the next part, "How Deliberate Practice Works". Learn a foreign language:
Spent 25 minutes reviewing numbers from 1 to 10. I'm using deliberate practice instead of going through the motions. This is accomplished by spending the first 10 minutes memorizing how to pronounce it (without the dreaded foreigner accent), then counting the number from 1 to 10, then 10 to 1 backwards. Then I wrote a long, long string of numbers and pronounce it in Korean without looking at the notes.
Word of the day: gerontocracy / [jer-uhn-tok-ruh-see, jeer-] / - government by a council of elders. "Old tribes, they favor a gerontocracy society ya know" Building an online business (Yeah!):
I'm blasting through Unstoppable Affiliate course, I'm excited to finish watching the course so I can actually start marketing.
Here's the rough draft of the blue print:
- Gather up all the tools necessary for the operation
- Checklist from A to Z of the operation (will compile this into more detail)
- Systemized every part of the operation
- Start content and link building
- After sufficent fund is achieved, outsource every part of the operation
More details on this in later posts. Watch something inspiration:
Watched 1 episode of Chiyahafuru (Progress: 10/25 episodes). Watching cartoon has never been so exciting, an emotional roller coaster. Daily Conclusion - what Ubermensch thinks:
The "Daily Conclusion" part will no longer be about me dispensing half baked advice (the mean and condescending undertone doesn't help either)
Instead, this part will be an evaluation of me. Everyday, I'll put myself under heavy scrutiny :
- Did I spend my time wisely?
- Did I get the work complete?
- What kind of negative or postive thoughts was I thinking throughout the day?
- Was I hatching evil plans to steal kid's lunch monies?
- When I finished this one activity and moving into the next, was there a wasted gap of time between?
Since I post a blog post every 24 hours, this serves as a good way to give constant feedback to myself. The purpose of this is to eradicate dysfunctional behaviors, including denial, un-aware of competence, or negative thought patterns. It is to be replaced with a more functional behavior - deliberate practice, introspection, proper course of adjustment, thorough planning.
This is taking personal responsability to the fullest, and revealing every weak link in the armor. I'm looking forward to recifying the problems.
[Thank you MrRottenTreats for pointing out that I need to put more time and effort into building the business]
My priority right now is making more money on the Internet then I can shake a stick at.
So this is what's the new schedule will look like (rough draft):
Meditation (7 mins)
Gym (1 hour)
Read (30 minutes?)
Business (3 hours)
Anime (20 minutes)
Korean (20 minutes)
15 minutes audio of self improvement
If I finish the daily list before sleep, I'll simply loop to the top and go again.
I haven't touched the PS3 in 3 weeks. I don't feel the need to play video game anymore once I realize it's a dysfunctional hobby.
