Stayed in last night. I finished work at midnight, I wasn’t ready to go out till 1 and then I just really didn’t feel like it. My time was not wasted though. I finished reading The Kybalion, which is a book that’s been recommended for people who go out. It was solid and is directly applicable to game, and life. But I actually got more from another book called Relentless. In it Grover says that the guys who are world class don’t have excuses, they just do it. It’s raining and cold? Go out. Blizzard? Go out. Your sick? Go out. Feel like shit? Go out. No wingman and you hate gaming solo? Go out.
That’s a message I can relate to as it’s more or less what I do with game (the irony being I stayed in last night). I’m committed to becoming world class at this and I’m going to do whatever it takes to make it happen. So onwards and upwards. Only three nights of game left in Berlin. Then I’ll go to Budapest for one night, a tiny town in Hungary to see my friend for two nights, Budapest again for two nights, then back to the greatest city in the world, the glorious and always exciting NYC.
-Keeping momentum is essential. You’ll never see me miss more than one day of going out. And if I don’t go out, I’m going to be doing something social with friends or a girl.
-When I go back to New York one of the things I’m going to do is build a massive social circle. I don’t really know how, but I’m going to figure it out as I go along.
-Travel is great because it puts you into uncomfortable situations that you get to overcome and become more confident in yourself.
