Take the #2021Challenge

Today, I have some homework for you.  I want you to write something.  A journal entry of your perfect day.  But not just any perfect day.  This entry will be dated January 1, 2021.  And it’s going to be a celebration of the fact that 2020 was the best year of your life.  Really.

Official Coronavirus Cancellations and Postponements…

If you’re like me, you’ve been fixed on all al the activities and diversions that have been cancelled, wondering when they will return.  I have such a fix to play softball again, go to dinner with friends, and watch a major league baseball game.  Not to mention, nervously eying the calendar as the date for the Motley Crue/Def Leppard/Poison concert draws near.   (And coming to the realization that getting a refund for the extra two grand I paid to the ticket scalper is about as likely as receiving a kiss from Tommy Lee.)  I decided the best strategy was doing some postponements and cancellations of my own.  Here’s what I came up with so far.  Please feel free to add any events I missed.

Upgrade Your Thinking

One of the masterminds I participate in is a WhatsApp chat group that we’ve labeled Juxtaposed Jedi.  It’s a daily chat with three of us, where we’re bouncing ideas off each other, conducting thought experiments, and getting and giving advice.  One of the most valuable parts of the process is when we point out faulty thinking.  This could be a confirmation bias someone has, making an assumption from a bad premise, emotional irrationality, or simply sloppy logic.

The Brainwashing of Self-Sabotage

Since you were a toddler you have faced overwhelming forces determined to brainwash you, hold you down, destroy your self-esteem, manipulate you into buying shit you don’t need, consuming toxic substances, going into debt, blowing up your relationships, and basically becoming a worker drone in the collective. You were unknowingly brainwashed by these forces and programed with numerous negative, dysfunctional, and harmful beliefs.  And once you accepted those beliefs as your own (unknowingly), you’re probably been practicing behavior that is still today, self-sabotaging the results you say you want.

Building Mental Strength

Most people are aware that they can build muscle and sculpt their physique through the method of physical exercise.  Not so many seem to understand that their mental state can be improved by exercising the right thought patterns. This can play out as becoming a better critical thinker, an improved problem solver, and even actually increasing your intelligence.  You essentially transform your thought process – how you view, evaluate and respond to stimuli.
