SAT JULY, 2
NEW ORLEANS, LA
12:30pm: Woke Up, India House Hostel
I need my beauty sleep (6 - 8 hours), but beyond that is too much. I could set an alarm clock, but I believe they're unhealthy.
1pm: Switched Rooms
The hostel was fully booked a week in advance of the July 4th weekend so I lost my room. Luckily I'm tight with the staff so they hooked me up with a bed on the floor of one of the rooms. Living large and in charge!
1:30pm: Walked to the Bean Gallery Cafe
1:30pm - 3pm: Blogged
3pm - 6pm: Programmed
6pm: Walked to Panera
6pm - 10pm: Ate & Worked on Blog, Panera
I completed my 30 Day Challenge, Blog Everyday! I'm committed to doing another 30 days
. But if I don't have 25 subscribers by the end of those 30 days I'll stop blogging. BAM!
I enjoy blogging about my journey and I'm happy to hear you like it! But I have to be practical. It takes me 2 to 3 hours per blog post. That's 2 to 3 hours per day I could be working on Live to Challenge
, which is ultimately where I plan on making my $$$$.
I like to set these benchmarks because it holds me accountable to my hypothesis, which is that people like to read about other people's day-to-day lives because it reveals what's possible.
10pm - 2am: Socialized at India House Hostel and watched Kevin Hart Standup
Jack Kerouac who works in the hostel asked me an awesome question, "What is the point of work?" This is a question we NEED to answer as a society in the coming decade as technology eliminates 50 millions jobs!
I said that as an American, I believe America should always strive to be the leader in innovation. He asked to what end though? I said it's never ending. We will constantly push. We will constantly strive to be a "more perfect union". We will push to the edge of the universe and then keep going. U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A! So in other words, the point of work is progress and "progress = happiness."
3:30am: Sleep, India House Hostel
