6.9.2013
My first friday off from work.
I thought of the big picture and figured the best solutions is to get the thesis done first.
I aim to get it done in September. Harrass the teachers to give feedback until its done.

This is the first phase of the first draft of my long-term plan I made this morning.

Facts about startups btw:

FR and an update soon..

Yeah now..

FR 4,6,7th september 2013
So I´ve been going out 3 times a week in June, July, and August. Also hit the gym 3 times a week.
Not much to say about pickup except that I think it´s the minimum for making progress. I´ve made progress at the gym too, almost satisfied.

The few things that I learned about pickup last week was that I´ve done so much tandem approaching with J
that I´ve become a and cant approach by myself anymore.
That´s easy to fix.
2nd thing was an old one too - I approached a really hot girl and was surprised that she treated me
as an equal from the get go. Entitlement issues show their ugly face again..
More approaching hot girls and getting them home... should handle that. Just do the same game with them.


The Big picture 2013

I watched Brad´s new one on focusing on one area of your life at a time and putting others on maintenance mode.
(The Cycles of Immersion & Maintenance: The Key to Success While Living a Balanced Life)
Nothing new but cleared my thinking.

I officially gave up on my pickup goal for 2013 as of today. Not realistic anymore. I dont want to fail with all my goals so..

I must get at least my bacherlors degree this year (2/4 goals).
Then focus on making cash (3/4) .

Put gym (2xweek) and girls (1xweek) on maintenance mode for probably the rest of the year.

Planning, discipline, time management, willpower, problem solving,
choosing not to follow distracting urges like entertainment or ANY DISTRACTIONS,
working after you feel like you should take a break or call it a day
and being excited to work on your dreams
while escaping the uncomfortable present situation
and remembering the ugly alternative.


That´s pretty much the gist of what I´ve learned in 2013 this far.

Even though my primary goal right now is getting my Bachelor of Business Administration degree and make money
this is what it all comes down to..

Making money, gym, gaming girls.. even though you´re working on making money you´re also working on getting hotter girls.
Thanks Brad. (I think it was his 21 convention 2012 recap speech where he said this in a brilliant way)






FR Sat 14-9-2013
After deciding to focus on other things I had no interest in getting girls. At the beginning of the night it served me well
but ended hurting me by the end of the night.

At the beginning of the night we ran into 2 7s dressed up as nuns. My 2 friends started the interaction.
Then one of them started hitting on me and suggested a facebook close with me (Thanks gym).
I did. My wing was trying to get her at the same time which made things awkward. I thought about what the right move would have been here..
And ended up thinking that if my wing has started to game a girl first the right choice for me is to leave and let him game her.
We all got into scarcity in this one.
"The one who opens the set owns the set"

And I got quite frustrated fighting over ugly 6s and 7s and the end of the night.
So if I only go out 1 x week then go all out from the beginning!

3rd thing.
I took a glance at a really hot girl on the dancefloor. Later to my surprise she came in front of me rubbing her ass onto me.
My thought pattern was "It´ll just be a short grind and she´ll leave in 2 minutes, why even bother". Once I gave up and
danced with her for 30 seconds her friend took her away (Wave Hi to the friend, be social). But it was a damn good grinding session wink
So (again):
Opening on the dancefloor is good -> Lead her away to chat and get a drink -> Back to dancing > Back to sit down > Pull
I thought "she´s too hot, not gonna work"
Fuck that.

Lately I´ve been wondering.. "What the fuck did I spend the whole spring doing?"

That´s why I´m going to start a bit silly record of my daily actions again:

Monday 16-9-2013
work
thesis group meeting
vacuuming + laundry

Tuesday 17-9-2013

work
haircut
Added 4 new versions to Facebook campaign. Just different pictures. (My 1st PPC campaign I started testing on saturday)
Added content + links to one PR domain
(no time for thesis sad )

wed 18-9-13
work
gym
hosting for new PR domain
went through my sites and made some necessary
changes before I put SEO on the backburner too on thu


Quotes:
"If you want to get success faster you have to double your amount of failure"
"A mark of a majure adult is expecting and accepting problems as a natural and expected part of life. They can´t be avoided."
“What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.”
“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”

Thu 19.9.13 (vacation from work)
- worked on thesis
- killed flies for 1h
- wasted a lot of time and got frustrated

Fri 20.9.13
- 1 hour on finishing an old website in dating niche
- 1 hour on killing flies
- finished 2/3 of chapter 2 (out of 4)

So I'm still a master at wasting time. I've studied lots
of time management stuff lately and applied some of that right away:
- phone on silent  (answer people after work)
- minimize entertainment

When you get more excited by your future and goals than
TV and movies, that's when the ball starts rolling. You use
all your time learning about the next step towards your dream
and do it happily.

Thanks man!
Even if I fail at my plans it´s still nice to know that I might have inspired someone to get success.
And I plan to link to all the great resources I have found on this thread to give some practical tips.


Monday 23-9-13
Too tired after work and groceries. Became a "Fuck it" day.

It´s a common problem for me. After taking right action and rushing from 6am to 6pm it´s really hard to start
workin on the thesis. At that point I feel like I´ve given all I have and I havent even started on what actually counts.
Frustrating.

Everything comes down to having energy. Sometimes I have energy at that point and there´s no need for willpower.
Gaining more energy makes you a beast in getting your goals. I just dont know what more I could do in that section.

...
IM update
One site of mine has started to make me a lot money - on my scale.
Boosts my income by about 100€ per month and gave me my all time Adsense record.
But it´s not solid at all since it´s an EMD site.
But I may be able to just put up new sites like it once sites like this get penalized.



Friday 27-9-13
8th anniversary of starting my current job.
Moved on by like a 1/3 of a chapter in my thesis. I´m a lot behind my schedule.

Went out at night and got really drunk and had some nice moments including a grind with a 10 , I´d say.
Nothing big. 2 tequilas made me throw up at 10 am at home, hah. Boy that sucks..

Saturday 28-9-13
Another "Fuck it" day.  Watched new episodes of Big Bang Theory and called this one a resting day.
Decided to give Black Hat SEO a try and quickly made a new site which I´m going to blast with links
from Blackhatlinks.com.
If this works it might be awesome.
Also got 2 new 1$ hosting accounts for my PR domains.

Sunday 29-9-13

Met my sister. I only see her like once a year so had to say "fuck it" again and skip working on stuff.
