We’re bringing you a follow-up episode detailing our progress to the challenges we gave each other in a previous episode (026). We are working towards greater self-discipline! Inspired by our conversation with Drew Dudley (025) and the book Living With A Seal by Jesse Itzler, we issued a few challenges to each other and this episode brings an update to our personal performance.
The first challenge we talk about is our 100-pushups-per-day challenge. The 2DD Pushup-up challenge started strong, but both of us have had a couple misses since the beginning, and since this episode recorded! Oops. Although not 100%, we talk about our progress and the discipline this challenge has pulled out of each of us.
The second challenge was to log all the food we eat for a month. We’ve accomplished the logging, but as you can see here, we still enjoy food, or make poor choices – depends how you look at it! After all, not having that birthday cupcake may have been offensive to some. This has been a great exercise for us and we are happy with the awareness it has increased for each of us.
The last challenge was to come up with a list of five lessons we have learned in our lives.
- You may not be able to choose your circumstances but you are in full control of your response to whatever circumstance you find yourself in.
- Don’t make all of your life decisions based only on money.
- Every single person has value, and it’s our responsibility to find it for ourselves and help identify it for those around us.
- There are other perspectives to things in life that we should consider.
- Be present in the moment.
- Remembering people’s names is important!
- Define your goals in life.
- Always be on the lookout for the opportunities that are presented to you.
- Fake it ’til you make it!
- Fireflies are under appreciated.
Seriously, fireflies? Kyle is strange.
