You’re the hero in your movie and right now is when the fucking movie starts and your life is a shitbag disaster. Like every fucking Arnold Schwarzenegger movie where he wakes up and makes a blender full of pizza and ice cream. Those guys on the brink… they put a gun in their mouth and they put it down because the see a picture of their daughter. Pretend that’s you. Pretend right now that you’re in the part of the movie that starts and it shows you as a fucking loser and just decide not to be a loser anymore.
Live your life like there is a documentary crew following you around and you are analysing your own behaviour. Do what you would want to do so that your kids one day would look back at it and see that documentary and look on it with pride. Wow, my Dad was a bad motherfucker he really did what he had to do.
DAY 1: START A NEW BOOK
Our 1 month of radical self-improvement begins with a new book. Aim to complete it before the end of the challenge.
DAY 2: OUTDOOR WORKOUT
Embrace the elements, it’s time for a functional outdoor workout. Find yourself an outdoor gym, a playground, a climbing wall or failing the aforementioned suggestions head into the forest and start utilising the environment.
DAY 3: LOSE THE CLOTHES YOU DON’T WEAR
You haven’t worn that shirt in 2 years! It’s time to clean out the wardrobe. Get them on eBay for some extra cash, or show some kindness and take them to your local charity store.
DAY 4: EXPLORE SOMEWHERE NEW
It’s time for a day trip – Explore a town, city or area which you have never been before.
DAY 5: DOWNLOAD 5 PODCASTS
You can listen to podcasts almost anywhere – On the way to work, in the gym, while you’re walking the dog. Download 5 new podcasts of subjects that interest you and begin to enter a new realm of information. Finish them before this challenge ends.
DAY 6: VISIT A MUSEUM
What type of museum? Totally your choice! Take a moment today to appreciate the works and history of your fellow man.
DAY 7: NO TECHNOLOGY TODAY
We’re off the grid today. Lose the telephone, the laptop, the watch, all of it! – This is a day of connecting with your native environment with zero distractions. Who knows what you’ll take away from this day?
DAY 8: MAKE SOMETHING CREATIVE
Today you will literally create something unique that wasn’t on this planet yesterday – A painting, a drawing, writing music, a poem, a short story – It doesn’t matter if you think you suck – get as creative as possible!
DAY 9: BEGIN A JOURNAL
For the remainder of this challenge, I want you to free up 30 minutes before you go to sleep to write about each day. For those who aren’t used to expressing your thoughts into writing, this is truly an excellent exercise to perform that challenges your brain into articulating your observations and thoughts.
DAY 10: CHALLENGE A FRIEND(S) TO A GAME/SPORT
It’s game time and we’re playing to win. Pick your challenge and get your fellow competitors onboard.
DAY 11: PLANT SOMETHING THAT WILL PROVIDE FOOD
“Growing your own food is like printing your own money.”
It really is. Find yourself some seeds, place them into soil and embrace the magic of nature.
DAY 12: WATCH A DOCUMENTARY
Watch a documentary about something important/highly relevant in the world today that you know very little about. Perhaps you’ll agree with the message or perhaps you won’t.
DAY 13: HIKE
It’s time to get into nature and get in touch with your wild side. Remember, your modern lifestyle has existed for a minuscule 0.001% of human history.
DAY 14: REMOVE THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE
“What is the one thing you could remove or stop doing today that would have the most positive impact in your life?”
Smoking? No more junk food? Have a really good think about it, you have all day after all. Then, remove it for the remainder of this challenge. (or forever!)
DAY 15: RUN
Humans are excellent runners – And that is really great for us because if we do it regularly it brings us many benefits.
Surprisingly some people don’t do it enough. Today though, that is not you – Pull up a map and set yourself a nice target. Run to it and run back. Simple.
DAY 16: CREATE A HARD-DRIVE OF LIFE
Get yourself a hard-drive, encrypt it and then fill it with your life photos, achievements, creative content, documents, videos,
journal entries and anything you deem appropriate for your digital treasure chest. This is an excellent private, secure, life resource to have offline.
DAY 17: REACH OUT TO 3 OLD CONNECTIONS
Get in touch with 3 old connections – Social media is an excellent tool to easily reach out to people who have made an impact in our lives these days. Think of 3 people who you highly respect and haven’t spoken to in the longest time and let’s see what is going on in their lives.
DAY 18: PROVIDE A POWERFUL CHANGE
This is a strategic upgrade – Take a moment to think about this:
“What is the one thing you could realistically begin today that would have the most
positive impact in your life?”
Is it joining a gym? Learning a martial-art? Do it.
DAY 19: PLAN THE PERFECT DAY
What would your ideal day look like to you if you could get full oversight? What time do you get up? What is for breakfast? What do you do next? Who do you see?
Today we’re hovering over the strategy table and writing down our ideal day in clear-cut detail and executing this plan tomorrow.
DAY 20: EMPEROR FOR THE DAY
No plans, no distractions – Pull out yesterday’s plan and execute.
Operation Emperor is now in effect.
DAY 21: A DAY OF SELFLESSNESS
It was a short reign ah? Today we look outside of ourselves – Give blood, donate to charity, take a bunch of old stuff to a charity store, visit someone in need, do some volunteer work, whatever – Today is about giving!
DAY 22: WRITE 2 MESSAGES TO YOUR FUTURE SELF
Fire up the calendar on your phone or computer and create 2 new entries. Write your first message to yourself 1 year from now and the second, 3 years from now. Perhaps these messages will be the fire that gives your future self the boost it needs?
DAY 23: TALK TO STRANGERS
Maintain eye contact and engage with 3 complete strangers in public – Single? Ask for their number – In a relationship?
Pretend you’re doing a poll and gather information. We’re simply breaking social convention here folks. Engage with your fellow creatures on this big rock called Earth as it orbits this mighty fireball. It’s No big deal.
DAY 24: DO SOMETHING YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO DO
Humans are social creatures and we’re easily coerced and manipulated into thinking and doing stuff we don’t necessarily want to do in order to fit in. This is a call for you to think for yourself and do something today which is on your own terms (Hint for the unimaginative – Perhaps leave the toilet seat up?)
DAY 25: DEFINE YOUR PURPOSE
Let’s answer a question today:
“If you had all the time and all the money in the world, what would you do?”
Take this question seriously, This is a powerful question that forces you to actually question what it is that drives you on this earth.
DAY 26: TELL SOMEBODY YOUR LIFE STORY
A family member, a close friend or even a complete stranger! One person who can give you a bit of their time today and relax, as they listen to the profound tale of your life here on Earth. This will be a captivating tale which takes the listener through your childhood and beyond with your profound insight along the way.
DAY 27: NO NEGATIVITY FOR 1 DAY
Mastering the cold face – Today we will not utter one negative sentence for an entire 24-hours. We will embrace the darkness of life on this day with nothing but control and calmness.
FINAL DAY: WHAT DID YOU LEARN?
It’s graduation day and if you have made it to the end of this challenge, give yourself a tap on the shoulder sir, you’ve earned it. Look, it’s not that this entire challenge is the most difficult thing to pull off, any capable man can tackle these exercises individually with ease. What makes this an impressive feat is the fact that you made a conscious decision to incorporate a foreign task into your life that lasted 4 weeks and you executed it. I guarantee many who started this challenge can’t say the same.
So, on this final day. What was the biggest lesson you learnt about yourself during the previous month? Maybe the journal isn’t for you after this challenge – But you gave it a go, right? Perhaps that date didn’t go so well with that girl who you got the number from at the park? – But you tried anyway.
Take a moment to establish your final lesson from this entire experience and take that with you into the future.
