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:
- Master yourself. Help others.
- Hell yeah or no.
- Believe in Evolution. Not in Revolution.
- Rely on Habits and Processes. Not on Willpower.
- 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.
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.
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.
