Once you’ve managed to enter the realm of productivity, never let yourself out of it.
Getting my life together was one of the hardest things I had to do. I was never able to properly organize my work, studies, and training altogether in a healthy way.
I want to become successful. And to do so, I know what my duties are. I need to write and publish every day, use my time properly, and be fit and healthy. In my opinion, these are the main ingredients to the recipe for a successful life.
Some won’t agree with me on the last one, but having a good and healthy body is actually necessary. What you eat impacts your mood, behavior, and decision-making. The healthier and fitter you are, the happier and more confident you will be.
Now, getting back to my point. I need to be productive, smart, and fit. How can I do that? or, if I ever managed to accomplish a perfectly balanced day, containing all the main components I desire, how can I maintain it?
Long story short, I recently achieved a perfect month. But I couldn’t keep it up. I altered my productivity flow thinking I had it all figured out. I was very wrong, and I regret every moment of it.
In my perfect month, I’ve helped more clients than any other month, reached my maximum weekly word count, and lost 2–3 Kg. I got accommodated to waking up early and saving time; I was running every day and going to my Crossfit class 4 nights a week; I was reading 60–80 pages of a book every day.
I had 5–6 hours of free time available every day to spend with my friends. It was like I’m the clock wizard. I had so much control of my time, It made me so excited. Even when my day wasn’t the best, I was rarely upset.
The Mistake That Destroyed Me
I used to spend all my free time with my friends. I know I previously said I had a lot of time to spare, but it felt like I lost control. I wanted more free time, time to relax and let loose.
There is no greater offence than harbouring desires. There is no greater disaster than discontent. There is no greater misfortune than wanting more.
