The main point I got out of it is to try and discover the reason why you want something. Say you work hard at work, get multiple degrees, stay long hours, help others, is it because you want a promotion and you are money motivated, or because you like to be liked at work? There are multiple ways of getting the reward you really need, but that reward needs to be identified first. For example, Arnold watched Tarzan when he was young and then went to the gym the next day and worked out for several hours. Unsurprisingly, he was unbelievably sore the next day. He said he loved the feeling, because he could see how it was getting him closer to the goal of looking like Tarzan. A different person might prefer a constant state of feeling good and avoid being sore at all cost. One good advice he gave us was to make a 90 days plan, and to set a 5 year goal. These should be draft at first, and the most important thing is to actually create the plan, no matter how shitty. The plan is not a contract but a first draft that can be perfected as time goes. Right now, I have a hard time seeing beyond my prep. It's all I can think of and I'm beaten, sore, and hungry, although incredibly motivated. I want to have a solid plan ready before Christmas that I can start implementing on January 1st. All I know is that I want to try and spend one year without drinking. It's not a problem because I'm obviously still achieving a lot of stuff despite drinking once in a while, but if I would have to identify the worst habit I should kick off right now that would be it.
