In progress.


✅ Since January 6th, I walk 5-10 km (3-6 miles) every day. I’m able to do heavy work on our garden again. Since September 9th I started to practice Ashtanga yoga 5 times a week for 60 minutes a day.

✅ Since February 26th I design one t-shirt a day. Now, more than 300 designs generate me $1,000 a month.

✅ Since March 28th, I take the coldest shower possible for two minutes as the first thing after waking up. I feel like a terminator. Suddenly I’m not sick when someone just sneezes around me.

✅ Since June 14th I wake up at 6am every day, even on weekends. And since October 4th at 5am. It adds me 3 productive hours a day.

✅ Since October 4th I don’t use the internet or any other digital technology for procrastination and escape. It tripled my productivity to 7 hours.

✅ Since July 21st, after ten years, I overcame my fear of driving. Now I drive to the yoga lectures twice a week.

✅ Last eight years I was becoming the forever alone meme. On July 13th Martin challenged me to ask three random girls I never met out. Face-to-face obviously. Tinder or anything digital would count as cheating. On October 19th I overcame my biggest fear of rejection and I asked a girl I met in my yoga class out. There was no need to ask another one because we have been dating since then.

  2. No girlfriend for years.
  3. Stuck in life when others are progressing, depression and zero energy.
  4. Fifteen years behind a desk and physical condition when unable to run more than 500 meters (even though my weight was about 65 kg for 183 cm height).
