Just Do it Journal!-Going from Mediocre to Mighty

Recommended Posts

YOOO! What's good Game Quitters? It's KO! Day is the day. What makes this day so special? Absolutely nothing! I'm just going "monk" for one year while I record my progress. Abstaining from all time wasters and vices. And replace them with more meaningful activities. After every week and month, I will give myself a debrief and then a final review once one year has elapsed.No excuses just effort and execution.


LET'S GO!

Sounds like you have this down to a perfect, precise, execution! Just reading that made me more pumped and motivated hah. Your positive attitude and high energy coming from your personality really seem to show in your writing. Looking forward to seeing the progress KO!

I found that trying to quit everything is easier to do than just trying to quit gaming, because one bad habit can trigger another. Looking forward to reading about how you are doing!

Wow! You're off to a flying start! I look forward to seeing how you do, but keep in mind that it'll take both discipline and commitment. Emotions, even motivational ones of the best kind, can be fleeting, so having methods and plans in place will allow you to apply your commitment and build discipline. How are you going to keep yourself from engaging in 'time wasters' altogether?

All the best for your new journey :D

DAY 1

YOOO! What's good Game Quitters? It's KO! Starting day 1 of my EPIC journey. I decided to quit video games, specifically MMOs because they are all monotonous!  I grind, grind and grind for levels so you can reach the fun parts. Do some more uninspired questing because I “have to”. And obtain the best gear until it becomes obsolete in couple of months. It wasn’t fun at all, it was the opposite! Down right frustrating. I tricked myself into thinking that I was an accomplished bada**. Once I logged off  nobody cared who I was. Time is one of my most precious resources. Why would I waste it on; something that isn’t real, provides no value to my life, and fails to entertain me. Why not invest my time and energy into useful?“The Matrix” red pill and blue pill metaphor made more sense to me. Either drink the blue potion and keep on playing games to escape life. Or I chug the red potion and accept that my life isn’t great but I can level it up it I grind it out. 

Noob Traps:
What holds me back in the game of life. And how I counter them.

Internet browsing-I set blocks and timers for websites I spend too much time on.
Video Games-uninstalled all my games and deleted all my accounts, no point in going back.
Drugs-Too expensive and I cut all ties from people participate in drug culture. 
Porn-Multiple adult blockers. Nofap button. 
TV/Videos-I will only watch lectures/informative videos. I will cut any non stimulating TV show such as Big Bang Theory, Friends, Family Guy, etc. I will only watch stimulating TV shows during my downtime(Sundays). For example: The Wire, Sherlock, Seinfeld, Rick and Morty, Duckman, etc. 

Daily Quests:
I’m starting small with my daily habits and gradually add more once I start to get into my routine 

Meditation-Yes/No
Fitness-Yes/No
Reading-Yes/No
Project-Yes/No
 

Achievements:

The long term/short term goals I set for myself

 

Scroll(s) currently being read:

Every week or two, I will read a book and discuss it

Adventure Log:

Keeping track of what happens everyday 
-Woke up around 5:30 am but didn't get up until 8:00 am
-From 8:00 am to 9:00 am I was idle
-9:00 am to 10:30 am I wrote in my notebook

-11:00 am to 12:23 pm Workout
-12:40 pm to 12:50 Cold shower

I really appreciate all the support :)

Love the cold shower! That really helps getting us out of our confront zones!! What sort of work outs are you getting up too dude?

YOOO! Cold showers are awesome! Especially clearing the mind. I'm doing a variation of Greyskull LP with accessories and calisthenics on off-days. The basics, bench, squat, dead-lift chin ups.

Sounds like you have this down to a perfect, precise, execution! Just reading that made me more pumped and motivated hah. Your positive attitude and high energy coming from your personality really seem to show in your writing. Looking forward to seeing the progress KO!

YOOO! Glad I could motivate someone :)

looking forward to your posts, I especially like the rating system of your attributes and your keeping track of what happens everyday!

 

YOOO! Haha, thank you. One of the only good things I got from video games :)

I found that trying to quit everything is easier to do than just trying to quit gaming, because one bad habit can trigger another. Looking forward to reading about how you are doing! 

YOOO! I agree with this, if I quit gaming and still browsing the internet until 4am

Wow! You're off to a flying start!

All the best for your new journey :D 

YOO! Thank you, I agree, discipline>motivation. Quitting cold turkey, recognizing habit cues and blocks are all I have so far to combat time wasters. :D

<----- big fan of cold showers

YOO! The benefits are amazing! The best one is being done fairly quickly. :)

I like your style of tracking your 'stats'.

 

I also tried to quit reddit, porn, games, meditate daily etc all at once.

My advice is when you relapse on 1, dont relapse on all of them. It is inevitable you will relapse on 1 of them sooner or later. At that time, try not to be so hard on yourself - and be proud that you still have your other habits going.

I relapsed on every habit except games, felt miserable - but happy I can still say I ahvent relapsed on games in 77 days!

YOOO! What's good Game Quitters? It's KO. I have not been consistent with the journal and lost faith in myself. I was on Facebook and read a post that two of my high school friends recently passed way. I started to question my own morality, quarter of my life is almost gone and nothing to show for it. Unless you count crap like capped characters, achievements and gear. Life is way too short to get caught up in bullsh*t! I plan to reboot my journal on Monday.
