Good sleep, good wakeup.
This marks the first time I’ve consecutively recorded anything for 100 days. This is a huge step in the right direction for my entire project.
I remember when I was a kid, I was obsessed with recording habits. It started with my dad who was really into yoga - in a Hindu family, meditation was the key to everything, and I grew up on stories of heroes going into the wilderness to focus on themselves, to train themselves to be great. Later on, I got into martial arts. I remember picking up a book that claimed to teach the secret arts of the Ninja - and the beginning stretching exercises, which I practiced every day before going to school, were going to transform me.
As a child of the 80s, it’s not surprising that I was fascinated with this. Most of the video games I played and cartoons I watched involved a hero questing, developing ability after ability over the course of what later, looking back, was a paltry amount of time.
Throughout my life my attempts at record keeping would fizzle out after a week or two. I got a planner in high school and later in college - I still have some of them and I remember my diligent notes - I would do crunches, I would run, I would practice music - whatever my obsession of the hour was. But at some point I would absent-mindedly leave the plans in a drawer, forgotten until I would remember them again after a few months, wondering at what point I had abandon my plans for self reconstruction.
It’s good to know I’ve made some progress since then. Here’s to more progress in the future.
