    This thread is a personal experiment:
    Can I can change my daily routines with the help of social pressure?


    It might turn out to be a horrible idea, but it's worth a try.

    ___________


    I've noticed a decline in motivation lately, which has been followed by apathy. I'd like to change that.
    I feel like I'm letting myself down by not using my own potential.

    In this thread, I'll try to post what I have done each day.
    If I spend all day wasting my time on facebook, playing league or some other activity I deem "useless", I'll post that.
    If I spend my day finding a cure for cancer, saving princesses from dragons, or other "good" activities, I'll post that.
    This is in order to try to stop spending too much time on leisurely activities, and actually do something useful with my time.

    I believe that if I post what I do in this thread, I'd want to post good things, and that will force me to actually do those good things.
    Kind of like patting myself on the back in a public place.

    ___________


    Feel free to join me and post your own activities each day!
    In the future, I think the optimal situation would be that we are 4-5 people sharing our activities in a closed group. It'd be awesome if we could make that happen.

    I mean, you can do what you want, Rufus, but sharing your private life with the public of the internet?
    A place with countless children hiding behind nicknames & idiots being idiots?
    You sure about that?
    I mean, if you feel that this may help you, why not simply pick some people who are trustworthy
    and share it with them rather than publically?

    Just my two cents, you do what you do.

    @San
    Not nothing, so much I didn't have time to visit Hive in the evening. :O

    I went to the gym, went for a run, spent about three hours doing mathematics, cooked nice food and then a big part of the day was spent at a party (from 17:00-06:00).
    So I just now woke up, being able to share.

    Notes:
    I actually was more productive than I usuallly am.
    Shar Dundred might be wise.

    @Shar Dundred
    Well, I might also be a child, hiding behind a monitor!
    Agreed though, that sharing personal things with strangers might feel strange. However, I would not like to share those things with people I really know.
    Maybe Hive is not the place, since I do other things on this website too, but I'm not really involved in any other forums, so this had to do.
    Maybe a personal blog for just myself could work though, but that would require some commitment to oneself.

    I know.

    Not really hiding, you have shown your face on a few occasions, Mr. Wizard!
    Maybe not share it with people you really know, it can still be people from the internet, I am
    merely arguing against sharing it with public like that. The internet tends to be toxic, childish,
    trollish... I could add more adjectives but I don't have all day.
    Again, your call how you wanna do it.
    Isn't commitment the whole point? :p

    True, But I don't have much of it yet. I need to build it first!

    Maybe I'm that great of a magician so the magic trick is to make people think I'm a magician while I'm really not?
    It is true the Internet can be quite harsch, it might happen, but I'm not too worried. Even if it does, I'm not sure it'd be hard to ignore.
    But yes, optimally, I'd like to create a group of just a few people that I really don't know and share with them, and have them share with me. I'm not sure that would work, but it could be really interesting!

    Spent all most of the day doing math and preparing a for a special Swedish test called Högskoleprovet (a test which you can use to get into university studies if you do well enough), and got a great score on the mathematical part (90%!).
    Also went for a short and intense run, with mediocre results.
    Also, I went to a beautiful girls house in the evening, and things... ended well. Yay!

    A good day. :D

    @Zombie
    Right!
    Maybe that is a better thread for my purposes actually.


    EDIT:
    Also, pls don't ever +rep me again. I'm at exactly a thousand.
