I know the posts are ugly. I’m thinking of ways to improve it. Bear with me.
Stayed up late recording videos of myself playing PUBG, hoping to get better. Missed a basketball appointment with my dad ;.; Also missed playing games with Casey Jones. I don’t wake up very easily.
Past Comfort Expanding Ritual Task:
Devote eight hours, additional to whatever I may have done before writing this post, to the full implementation of the scientific method with relation to experimental design, Fast Experiments, and business.
- Estimated Start Time: 18:30 | 18:30
- Estimated End Time: 06:30 | The next day
Just devote another four hour session to this after this. After a four hour session, play for a bit. Use friends to contradict what I*’ve learned. Then get back into it by 02:30. Play PUBG after that.
Past Recovery Task:
After this four-hour session (or maybe during):
- Do a recovery “potion” anytime my energy dips below “30%” in any quadrant (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical) – nap, deep breathe, meditate, work out, watch a funny video.
Do it. | Played a lot of games. Might’ve done a workout, but I don’t remember.
If I* will commit to constant and never-ending improvement, I will see superiority in all I I commit to. (Working belief until I get something more specific.)
FP -> Comfort Expansion:
Good: Did more than two four-hour study sessions. Threw myself into some complicated math and extremely useful stuff–namely Taguchi and Response-Surface methodology.
CP: Whether and when to sign off. What to respond with when I don’t. How to handle commitments that interfere with me mid-game. What to do when things get interesting, or I* don’t understand something. What to do when I* get overwhelmed.
Good -> Better: Set time limits on my home ec and game playing. Make sure I* get what I* go after within my four hour sessions. Be present always!
Not-So-Good: I played games, stayed online, when I still had work to do. Now, I still have an hour’s worth of questions and a chapter left to read, when I* could be onto the next thing.
Different Than Not-So-Good: Sign off! Stay signed off until my goal is done. Keep going, especially when it seems overbearing.

Next Recovery Task:
“Drink a recovery potion” anytime my energy dips below “20%” in any quadrant (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical). This really means nap, deep breathe, meditate, work out–in that order.

Next Comfort Expanding Task:
When I was sixteen or seventeen, I was asked to watch my neighbors dog. As a self-repressed, semi-homosexual, I found the idea of sucking the dog off and having the dog hump me an interesting exploration of this part of me. So I did both those things. While I’m sure the dog was okay with it, I’m sure it’s in general something I probably shouldn’t have done. I have many fears about admitting it to the owners of the dog, but ultimately, I’m a better person now, and I value a clean conscience–and the support of the firm belief of “authenticity is the best policy” with action–so my task for today is to admit this to said people.
- No times because this should be quick and is already done. I feel sort of sick.
Intensity: 4/5 (Would have been a 4.5 if I were talking to them in person.)
