After your sleep, diet, and exercise are working well, the next step to take is to cut out as many bad and time-wasting habits as possible:
A: Delete social media ala Twitter, Facebook. Minimize(Give yourself one day a week, for an hour or two) or cut youtube.
B: Stop watching porn. Use K9 Web Protection and at least one other blocker. After giving exceptions for important things(Like this site!) change both passwords to something you don’t know. Do the same for your phone if you have to.
C: Stop internet addiction/news addiction. Give yourself 15 minutes a day to check news(Mostly headlines!). There is an exception to this if you are not WOKE enough, but after a year or so you are not getting a benefit from reading 3 takes on something- at that point you are more of an “expert” than 99 percent of the people in media!
D: Cut nasty, hopeless, needy, or otherwise useless people out of your life. If they are family then use the Dale Carnegie techniques- listen to their gripes and complaints, do not let them destroy your internal mood, let them do the talking, etc.
E: Cut all video games.
F: Limit all other time wasting activity as much as possible
***G: Stop listening to evil music, watching whiny or evil tv and movies, or feeding your mind any kind of pointless negative information! Delete it! There are admittedly things on that spectrum that rise to the level of true art. Take the important lessons from them, and then only re-experience them when your memory had faded (Once a year for ex)
Implementing these things may be hard for you to do but DO NOT GIVE UP!!! Believe you can do it, and think of how much time you will have to accomplish your very important goals!!! BONUS: Discipline gives you a feeling of pride in yourself that tops the feeling of being entertained ten fold!
(Step 3 will be about changing mindset and other things: Read “The Magic Of Thinking Big” post for the in-depth on mindset)
