My Typical Morning Routine

18 hours ago, for day 51 by Eric Lima 🔥

For a while now I've maintained a fairly regular morning routine and make sure to wake up at the same time each day, even on the weekend. I typically will fall asleep the night before between ten and eleven and have found that I don't sleep more than about six...


Lifting

1 day ago, for day 50 by Eric Lima 🔥

I wasn't exactly sure what to write about today and I don't have much time left so I'll go into my lifting routine and anything else related. I've been lifting/weight training for about 11 years now. It's by far my favorite way to maintain my fitness. Prior to getting into...


Writing Resistance

3 days ago, for day 49 by Eric Lima 🔥

Steven Pressfield has written some greats books, in particular: The War of Art, Do The Work, and Turning Pro. He identifies that thing we feel when we don't want to do the work that we have to do, the Resistance. Whelp, I'm feeling resistance right now with writing today. When...


The Slow Death of Cable

3 days ago, for day 48 by Eric Lima 🔥

Every day that passes I become more and more amazed that traditional cable TV still exists. I get that some people get it bundled or are just used to having it, but it's just so much noise and wasted time. It seems as though the only reason that cable TV...


Reading More than One Book at a Time

5 days ago, for day 47 by Eric Lima 🔥

For a long time, I remember only reading one book at a time until it was done. Then, once completed, I'd search around trying to find the best option for my next read, and the cycle continued. Then, one day, I wondered why I was only reading one book at...


Thoughts on Time

6 days ago, for day 46 by Eric Lima 🔥

Time is a peculiar thing. It is something that cannot be controlled and something that we can't accumulate more of. Time, or at least our perception of it, seems to be greatly based on our perspective. Have you ever worked a job you hated or been stuck in a class...


The Productivity App Dilemma

1 week ago, for day 45 by Eric Lima 🔥

I seem to be experiencing a bit of a productivity-app-usage-issue-dilemma-thing... The good news; I've successfully cut out most tools/apps to simplify things and kill off the unnecessary distraction. The bad news is that I'm still using two apps at different rates and I'm getting the overwhelming impression that it's waisting...


Something From Nothing

1 week ago, for day 44 by Eric Lima 🔥

When was the last time that you looked around and realized that everything that is something in existence was once nothing? Yes, everything at its most basic level is mostly carbon. What I’m talking about is the act of creating. Look at what you’re wearing right now. Someone, somewhere, helped...


The Impact of Our Environments

1 week ago, for day 43 by Eric Lima 🔥

I was recently thinking about how much our direct environment can have an impact on us and what we can do to control it. There are now more than a few great books (Atomic Habits, Deep Work, Peak Performance, etc.) out that emphasize a similar idea around controlling your environment...


Small Wins

1 week ago, for day 42 by Eric Lima 🔥

Have you ever found yourself procrastinating on work or waiting to get a project started because you weren’t motivated? I’m sure most of us have. Motivation, although fantastic, is not worth waiting for to start or finish anything. Instead of motivation, I would suggest starting your day with at least...
