Starting A Yet Another Challenge

I know, it’s getting boring, but that’s what happens…

I’ve been super busy working lately, so again you will have to settle for not so carefully crafted out message. My goal for this week is to re-evaluate my life after the pretty sobering realization last week that I’m not really knowing what I’m doing.

The challenge this time around will be very, very simple and to an extent somewhat easy as well. We could dub it the Consistency Challenge since I’ve been insisting on giving silly titles to all of my challenges.

The Consistency Challenge

I’m tired of constantly forcing myself into complicated schedules and stuff like that, so this time the challenge is really easy – just score at least 30 points in Universal Awesomeness Score every day. During the days that I work I always score that easily – what I’m looking for here is to maintain a level of doing useful stuff during those off days. Thus the name consistency challenge. Scoring 30 points in my system is nothing insane, it’s just decent, but I don’t need to go insane all the time.

Especially at this point of my life. In a month, my GF is going to come to Finland to visit me, and I definitely don’t want to be working brutally hard during that time. Besides, my move away to Malaysia is finally finalized. I will leave my home behind on January 7th. It took me almost two years to achieve, but I’m finally at a place financially and in terms of my capabilities, that I can make the move happen.

What happens now is just enjoying the final few weeks at home. I’m excited for the move cause that will be a total life transition, but I already know it won’t be easy either. That’s why this challenge will run until January 7th. Once that day rolls around, there will be challenge enough in my life without anything self-inflicted.

As for the reward for my challenge… I can’t really think of any. I hope a challenge this easy will be weathered through with just the intrinsic motivation of completing it.

Planning for the Future

As said, I’m choosing to use the time that I have to weigh the options for the future. To think what exactly I’m striving for in the long-term, and what will be my focus on the short-term, what piece of the jigsaw I choose to concentrate for now. I have a general idea of course in my head already, now I need to flesh it out and clarify.

I’m not sure whether I should write out my plans to my blog publicly, whether it would be an useful exercise or not, so let me know what you think.
