Master yourself. Help others.

I recently wrote about how  what I do aligns to “Master yourself, help others” philosophy I learned from Derek Sivers.  I loved this philosophy so much that I want to make it my life motto and make sure everything I do fits into either of these buckets.

This motto adds on to the four principles I practice. Here is the complete list:

  1. Master yourself. Help others.
  2. Hell yeah or no.
  3. Believe in Evolution. Not in Revolution.
  4. Rely on Habits and Processes. Not on Willpower.
  5. Base goals on Identity. Not on Performance or Appearance.

For the fun of setting resolutions for 2016, I decided to highlight two things from my /now page.

Master yourself

I am going to work for perfect abs. This not so because I want to show off but for the fun of attempting what I think is difficult to do. Perfect abs means eating really well, great rest of the body and overall fitness.

I reiterate, I exercise to master my body and be healthy so I can give a best shot to my aspirations. External results like lean body, muscle and low body fat are nice side effects I can’t help but enjoy.

Help others

I am going to work hard to be successful in my side project code-named, Chaitanya 3.0.

I am super excited to imagine what is possible in 2016.

Here’s to 2016 and I wish you all the very best for your aspirations.
