555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 107.
Time Awake: Roughly 8:30 a.m.
Each day there are numerous tasks to be completed. Sometimes it feels like 24 hours aren’t enough. Sometimes it seems that there just isn’t time to get all the things done.
A method to make getting everything done easier and more time efficient is called Lumping. With lumping, you take multiple tasks that might seem unrelated and do them together. The brain processes them as one single task and flows accordingly.
For example, I need to go outdoors every day. I crave soaking in the sun and being out in nature for hours. But there are also many other things to get done. Instead of not doing one of them, I’ve combined multiple things with outdoors. I lump Hungryman Breakfast with being outdoors. I set up my exercise mat and do the morning routine while outdoors.
Lumping. It’s one of my favorite time utilization methods. Try it and you will find more time than you thought you had.
555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 102.
Time Awake: 9-something a.m.
The things in Life that matter, the ones that lead to growth, change and improvement, all of them are not simple. They’re not easy. They take time. Effort.
Nobody can do the things for you. And if they offer to, decline. You have to do things for yourself, to build a foundation of understanding. Doing it yourself will allow to learn and take that information forward. Accepting advice is fine, but the actions have to be done yourself.
I have a lot of not easy things going on. The elephant in the room that I still cannot speak about. Talking about issues that were either not addressed or were left unresolved. My weight loss.
And others. For each item, I am working regularly. I have lists, and cross off things as they are accomplished.
I’m building Mike 2.0, don’t you know? That takes work, which is worth my time. The changes are already staggering. Onward.

Join me as I soak in some outdoors sun and nature.
Rockaway Beach, Queens, NY. Not from today, but still brilliant.
