The Cave You Fear To Enter Holds the Treasure You Seek in Daily Journals Posted March 29, 2017 · Report reply 12 Days Game FreeNotes: Have had a lot more time with the break from work, felt a few pangs to game in moments where I knew I had some time on my hands, but I have put it towards other things with good results overall. As evidenced by my streaks, doing better with exercise (back in the gym yesterday) and writing. Not shown are all of the things around the house I am finally getting around to. Good stuff. Up through the first week I had a good chain of posts. Rethinking how I want to approach the Daily Journal, as I just kept putting it off. The fact that I haven't gamed doesn't mean that this sort of tracking isn't a good thing for me. I think I will set a time aside to do it each evening and put a reminder on.Meditation: 10 minutes morning, now have 100 sessions and 20 hours on Headspace, which is a pretty satisfying number to look at. Also on a 13 day streak of that, pretty cool.Body: Beach with dog, walk with dog. 4.6 miles today. Rest day from lifting but probably could have done jiu jitsu if I had planned ahead better.Mind: 1 chapter of Willpower Instinct, Dan Crlin's Ghosts of the Ostfront III, two Writing Excuses episodes.Writing: I wrote for several hours today, as well as getting some research done for a writing competition I am entering. The pressure to do it well is good, as long as I don't let it keep me from starting. I hope that this journal is not going to become procrastination from writing.Short Term: Keep waking up and getting shit done.Write a significant portion every day, with a draft done by Thursday.Mid Term: Complete application for writingResume polishTaxesSurfingLong Term: Complete, draft, edit novel for considerationPush outside comfort zone, try new things.Typing those out was actually a really good thing for me to do. I can see how it gets people to remember what they're after and drop off stuff that has become irrelevant, tedious, or that gets done.
