Well, I am not really good with diary, but I am creating this one as a reminder to myself to focus my energy in right direction and not to waste any second of my life on worthless things (you know what I mean). It’s more or less like a personal journey to hold myself accountable towards the action I put every day. Although it’s a personal journey but if anyone wants to tag along feel free to join as well. There won’t be any scores, it’s just to share with people honestly how you spent your day, what personal project you worked on, or what have you learned. Feel free to express yourself.
Spent my time playing around with blender, made something really basic using free 3D models and stock images. Looking forward to next day to practice something new.
Brilliant work buddy! Keep perfecting your skill
Thanks a lot brother @CoffeeMan
Day 2 (14/02/23)
Couldn’t do much today, cause of too much work. Just had few hrs left before sleep. So I thought to review my own script today for the game that I am planning to make someday.
Day 3 (15/02/23)
Spent my day fixing the windows driver issues and remaining time spent on following the basic tutorial of blender low poly modeling.
Day 4 (15/02/23)
Relapsed again after completing 5 days. Continued the journey on low poly modeling today.
Starting again afresh, no turning back again.
Day 5 (16/02/23)
Finally Friday Night is here, weekend is up means more time for personal stuffs.
Finished another lesson on low poly modeling in blender.
To stay engaged while following the tutorial, I was playing this ambient medieval music, it gave me some great vibes.
Check it out if anyone wants to listen as well…
Overall a good day, no urges just using my energy in right direction.
A well planned is more successful than the dreamer of success
If i ask you this question answer it honestly without telling
What plan do you want to execute tommorrow??
Life is not accident you have to plan for the 5 dayz first, see if you can accomplish that task and guess what??
Self trust will build up to a such a piont that it will be easy to find solution to any problem
Thats was a quickie tip just keep going and soon you will find your success
Thanks for the tip brother, you are right planning the day is crucial or else your mind will plan the day for you.
Day 6 (18/02/23)
Spent my time today searching a few more tutorials on blender and digital painting. I was tired of drawing ovals and lines, so played around to make things funny. Tried gesture drawing and damn it made me realize I have to practice drawing ovals and lines for a month or more. Gesture drawing in a min was really overwhelming. So thought to drop it there and followed other’s loose drawing tutorial, made some inaccurate shapes and did very basic coloring. Not much of a productive day but ya I took some power naps in between to not overload my mind.
For some weird reasons thought of my ex today and quickly snapped out of it, some chapters of life are supposed to remain closed, no need to open them again.
So to summarize, today was a balance of rest and productivity. No urges, fewer distractions and had fun too. Going to try continuing the journey tomorrow.
Tired of ovals drawing, so made this out of nowhere haha. On a side note, that’s many of us when we relapse so don’t relapse, stay strong!!!
Day 7 (19/02/23)
Spent my day training in blender, although I was distracted but I didnt let it ruin my entire day. Explored various editors in blender watched few movies made purely in blender. Overall a great day, going to continue studying more in coming days.
Are you reading any books lately?
Nope, I was actually thinking to make a habit of reading some in coming days.
Oh, better stay away from fiction. I mean that’s my 2 cents. It’s a free country though.
I would suggest you to pick one that has something to do with one of the following: Finance, Psychology, Intergender dynamics, Negotiation… Basically anything that upgrades you as an individual.
- Rich Dad, Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki
- Never Split the Difference - Chris Voss
- The Rational Male - Rollo Tomassi (I’m reading this one now)
Try reading - The Compound Effect
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck ( Amazing book )
It’s on my list.
Will check it out for sure.
Forgot to mention one of the most amazing book - Can’t Hurt Me…
That’s all for now…
Thanks brother @CoffeeMan and thanks @SwatiV
By the end of 25th Feb, I’ll be having limited access to my personal laptop for almost a week, so definitely gonna check these out.
Day 8 (20/02/23)
Slept on time, but woke up late. Not much productive day, busy in work. Hopefully after the coworking week, I can start afresh. Not much of urges but there are some triggers that sometimes pull me in, for now snapped out of those triggers.
