This year, I decided to do the 100 Days of Code challenge to help my career and possibly future job prospects. I decided to do an inverse New Years Resolution. Instead of starting on New Years Day, I want my goal to be finished on New Years Day! The idea being that most resolution fail because they're not measurable and don't have a time limit. Saying "I'm going to eat healthier" is easier to break than "I'm going to eat healthy for 100 days." (Plus I can add another accomplishment to this year!)
So I challenge all of you to try something new, or work on something you already do, for 100 days, starting September 23rd! If you've always wanted to learn an instrument, practice for 100 days. If you want to lose weight, kick sugary drinks for 100 days. If you like to draw but want to get better, draw for 100 days. Just make sure it's something attainable and it won't hurt you. (Don't run 15 miles every day, unless you're already a high mileage runner!) Good luck, everyone!
6am daily routine; I struggle everyday to get myself out of warm bed, into the cold outside to walk 15 mins to gym, n then need to pump myself up to get hyped and actually get a decent work out done, While am contemplating this state of internal lethargy in between reps, I caught this guy in the corner of my eye, average height really well built, wouldn't say buff but you can tell he works out, I see him fumbling a bit at one of the weight machines, first thought he's just changing the weights setting and will get on it, he's taking he's time, but he's arms and hands are moving kinda fast, wait what, he is patting around, like he's sending space with his hand, wait a min, I focus on his face, the guy is visually impaired, not completely blind, but clearly disabled, took him a good 30 seconds to set up the machine and get in position to start doing the weighted pull downs, and am thinking damn, the patience this guy has, with himself, he totally understands his limitation, yet has the focus and perseverance to keep pushing himself, day in day out, am telling ya he's built, he's been doing this for years, and to think I was moaning about trivial shit
