Today will be the best day ever.
This morning I didn’t prepare. Last night I streamed a lot later than I thought I would. And today I woke up thinking that I had work when I really didn’t.
Also I didn’t prepare because I locked myself out of my apartment, ripped my dress pants, and climbed over the balcony LOL.
It’s these situations when you’re forced to think on the top of your head that give you the best ideas. Sometimes the best ideas are not planned out, but rather spontaneous and letting the brain force itself to find a solution.
It’s one of the reasons I feel hyped right now at this coffee shop and the reason why I’m up early trying to plan my week out.
It feels good to be one of 3 people at this coffee shop actively trying to work something out.
As I’m watching the Gary Vee/Tim Ferriss show as well, I’m realizing that I want to buy his book. Not only that, but maybe I need to set hard boundaries in my life.
Not necessarily hard boundaries that “take away” in my life, but rather fulfill me as well.
-Like no working after 6 PM.
-Must workout everyday or do something physical
-Must write in my morning pages everyday
-Read an interesting article everyday
-Read for at least 10 minutes a day
-Meditate and do the male breathing pattern daily for 5 minutes
Jocko was right. This is part of being a man. Discipline = Freedom.
I was also thinking this morning as well. Mom told me I have about 10K in bonds. I could use that money to pay off my loans. Or I can use that money to build a cryptocurrency portfolio. Should be pretty dope.
How I’m thinking about structuring it is taking $10,000 of my own money. And investing it into cryptocurrency. Then with the education bond money, I will use that to pay off my school loans month by month for about a year… That’s what I roughly have anyways.
So when crypto moons, I’ll be good. Either way it’s sort of like “free” or unexpected money.
I was also thinking about taking the current cash I have an investing it into stocks like Nvidia or things that support the backbone of cryptocurrency.
I think in life it’s important to double down on the things we believe in. I also believe that James Altucher’s Microcap or 1% advisory isn’t really worth it.
It’s cool to have, but honestly I haven’t even made my 2K worth. I need to make more money off the product and earn past what I’m making from the course.
I look at the gains I’ve been getting from cryptocurrency and it truly makes me feel like I found a potential way out. It’s a lot easier than setting up a business… which is something I want to do and I will do. Fuck. I am doing it.
It pretty crazy sometimes I get caught up with less empowering words like “I will” or “I’m trying”. Those are pretty low commitment words.
If I change my language to dominate and to go balls deep, it will change how I approach certain things. I think it’s time to go back to basics and figure out what I care about and what I don’t give a fuck about.
One of the things I want to do is leave my job. So how will I go about doing that?
Maybe a few steps strategy…
1. Grow my YouTube to document my journey quitting pharmacy and taking control of my life
2. Cryptocurrency (50%)
3. Invest in traditional funds (40%)
4. Invest in 10% stocks
5. Grow Refugee Hustle into a business
Some thoughts about Refugee Hustle. I should take sometime to work on the action steps from 2 weeks ago. If I don’t then I am setting up myself for failure. Maybe I can email a few people on the list to do a one on one interview as well.
And instead of doing monster posts, I can do shorter 500 words posts which focus on one point rather than 3 points. That way it is more focused rather than being everywhere.
How do I want to organize my time between YouTube videos, blogging, coaching calls, learning, and a product launch?
1. First I need to calculate number of free hours that I have and intentionally set something on my schedule.
2. Then prioritize level of importance of my goals
3. I also need to add buffer time.
Honestly I think doing the morning pages are probably one of the most important things I’m doing right now. It allows my brain some downtime and allows me to create what I want to create. It allows me to “mastermind” rather than put out the fires in my business.
