Some time ago, a co-worker asked me how I was able to consistently wake up at 5:45am every day. It’s then that I realized that it had actually become easy for me because I “Fuel on Crazy Goals”.
When I had prepared my list of goals for the month, I went a little over board. I had started working towards them, and the results had been phenomenal.
“The day before something is a breakthrough, it’s a crazy idea” — Peter Diamandis
Here were my list of goals for the month:
- Gain 5kg of muscles;
- Lose 3% body fat;
- Become a much better and more efficient writer;
- Start making money;
- Release Soul Reaper on Steam;
- Become much more fluent at day-to-day Spanish conversations;
- Restore my eCom store: De Viking Butikk;
- Restore Text-to-Speech app;
- Find partner company to help with Soul Reaper;
- Meditate every day.
Here were the results of the first 12 days:
- I woke up at 5:45am with ease;
- I gained 2kg;
- I got most of my daily articles published and 50% of my Quora answers became Top answers;
- I spoke Spanish 80% of the time (I was in Spain at the moment);
- I found a partner to help me with a Text-to-Speech app I had started doing 3 months ago;
- I had the final call with a potential partner on Soul Reaper;
- I meditated every day; and
- I started investing a minimal amount of money in crypto-currency.
But more important than the achievements is the level of energy I had.
I was so driven. Throughout the day, I was almost constantly in the state of flow.
There’s no “Should I keeping doing it?” when I woke up in the morning. I was pumped to start my day. There were so many things I “had to” accomplish towards these insane goals that not getting up early is not an option.
