EoG ST2 day 16
Well this is very interesting. I decided to just stop fighting it and Monday and Tuesday did absolutely nothing. Laid around, slept in, napped if I felt like it, read a little, watched some youtube. Went for a couple walks, didn’t feel guilty about not working out. ST2 ultrasonic playing this whole time and masked with headphones during walks.
During this down time I basically questioned my whole business model. My entire view on wealth and how money works. And I think I’m going to take my business in a very different yet still related, so I don’t have to start from scratch, kind of way.
The driving contradiction that I have been fighting with for a long time now, and that came to light in these past two days is this: I always had lofty goals of shooting for a million dollars a year. Picturing the nice penthouse, the 5 star traveling. But I realized, wealth, like women, needs to be a ladder like progression. For me the shoot for the moon is kind of bullshit. So I lowered my goals and decided if I can do $100k in a year, I would be totally happy beyond my wildest dreams. Get there, then shoot for $250k a year. Nobody can go from not being able to talk to a girl, to taking one home that night. Same for money, nobody (or at least 99.9%) of people don’t go from getting by to millionaire in a short time.
This really feels a lot like a break up from my entire business plan, but also very freeing. I was dead set on hustling and grinding until my business made it huge. Now though, I feel a relaxed excited energy of let’s just slightly stretch the comfort zone, or ceiling, of money set point, then once you get there, push it a little bit more…
It feels like I’m abandoning something I was so sure of, yet now so sure that a change in coordinates is absolutely the right thing to do for me at this point in life.
