Day 117

I have some really big goals for life. You guys all know the biggest: make $10,000 passively each day when I turn 30 years old.

There’s a lot of ways I could work to achieve this goal. I write about a lot of the strategies I do on a daily basis in this case study.

But one thing I do a lot, and haven’t really written about, is focus on those goals. It’s the law of attraction, which says if you focus on something, it’s more likely to happen.

Every morning, I write my goals down in a notebook. The constant repetition (I’ve done this for years) allows me to really focus on those goals and make them happen.

Another strategy I use is to focus on my goals is my morning iPad scroll.

I scroll through Zillow. I look at Zillow to find new property for us to buy for investment.

But, I  always end by looking at the multi-million dollar house I want us to buy. Mark Cuban did the same back in the day by driving through the nice neighborhood and imagining what it would be like to live there.

I scroll through websites looking at boats, simply because I love boats and wish I had one.

Is it objectively foolish?

Yes. I’m a young 20’s guy that cannot afford any of that. It’s a waste of time to be shopping for boats online.

But, I swear spending a few minutes scrolling through these houses and boats  will help be able to buy one myself.

What I did yesterday to make $10K a day at 30

The current phase of the plan

I’m in Phase #1:  The Job & Side Hustle Phase.  You can read more about the phases and my plan to get to $10K/a day at 30 here.

Wake up & sleep:

I slept okay, 7 hours and 32 minutes, waking up at 7:34 and going to bed at 11:43.

I have noticed that I’ve fallen into a bit of a pattern of waking up around 7:30 most mornings, regardless of when I go to bed. I woke up around the same time yesterday but I also had gone to bed an hour earlier. For the reseason, my recovery is lower.

I think this lack of good sleep played a pretty big role in me not feeling up to doing a lot of work today.

Exercise

I had that big workout day yesterday, which had me super tired today.

Again, I can’t do too much because it kills my ability to do more work the next day.

Diet

Diet was coffee, curry, and ice cream.

Same as yesterday. I was too tired so I just ate food and didn’t do much.

Absolute crap.
