Life Check: Are You Still Alive?

I have felt the weight of time. Every moment fleeting.

I wrote about how fast the past year had gone in my journal when I was 8 years old. I was excited to be 8 years old and start the next chapter of my life. How can I be older? When you’re having fun, time flies.

I realized I am close to 50 when I turned 34 this week.

Alex Honnold climbed the El Cap rock wall without ropes. The climb took three hours and 56 minutes, making it the fastest free solo ascent ever achieved. It is one of the greatest human feats I have ever seen. It is a testament to the strength and determination of the human race. I was so blown away by Alex’s mastery preparing, and then crushing the climb in the documentary Free Solo, that I saw it 3 times in theaters!

Alex and I are the same age. We have been friends for a long time. I always compare myself to someone who is my age. I sometimes wonder if I am achieving enough in comparison to them. When someone is the same age as me, I tend to compare myself with them. It helps me to strive to reach their level of success if I compare myself to them.

I try to understand who they are. What makes them tick? Understanding what motivates people, what drives their emotional and psychological state, or what underlying factors influence their behavior can be referred to. What’s their obsession?

The Mirror of Time

What have I done with the same amount of time? I’m proud of the things I’ve accomplished in my life, and I want to use my time to set new goals for myself. I don’t look at how much money they have. Ask yourself if I’m really living.

The pace is getting more frenetic. I’m exhausted trying to keep up. There is the immensity of existence. The speed. I have been tethered to the internet since I got my first laptop at 8 years old. I’ve been looking at its endless possibilities ever since. We are still connected even when we are not. We all share the same humanity, and that connection will never be broken.

I don’t like the mundane. I want to experience something extraordinary and break free from the mundane. If I have done something a few times, I don’t want to do it again. I’m always looking for new things to do. Is it possible to post on social media consistently? Constant posting on social media with engaging and valuable content will help you gain more followers and build relationships with your target audience. No thanks. Editing blog images. Is it possible to write on a set schedule? Setting a regular writing schedule will help you stay motivated and on track to reach your writing goals. Uhh…

I am good at starting things, but struggle finishing them. I am driven if I am inspired or curious. I try to learn something new every day. I don’t need goals or schedules to make it happen. I’m going to take it one day at a time and see what happens. It is difficult to go through the motions if I am not interested. If my heart isn’t in it, I won’t be able to perform to the best of my ability, that’s why I try to stay open minded and give every opportunity a fair shot. Time is precious.

This has served me well because I don’t waste time doing things I don’t enjoy or pursuing things I’m not into. I have been able to focus my resources and energy on what matters most to me. Instead of following a strict schedule, I follow my intuition and get a higher return on my time. I have been able to focus on more important tasks and achieve greater success.

This case has the highest level of joy and impact. The highest level of joy and impact it creates is measured in terms of return on investment. Sometimes that means making more money in less time, and sometimes it has nothing to do with money at all. It’s important to find solutions that will bring the most satisfaction to your life.

Does Practice Make Perfect?

We live in a world where the routine, habits, and repetition are seen as the path to success. This can lead to stagnation and a lack of creativity, which can limit our potential for growth. It takes 10,000 hours to master anything, and repetition and consistency are sold as the path to mastery. Repetition and consistency are important components of mastery, but should be balanced with adequate rest and recovery to ensure optimal progress.

There is a huge difference between repeating and becoming. It takes effort, dedication, and sometimes a bit of luck to become successful. You can get good at something if you repeat it, but mastery comes from becoming. To achieve mastery, you need to keep pushing and strive for improvement.

It comes from obsession. The practice of masters becomes the thing. They inspire others to reach higher levels of understanding and achievement. They are always getting better because they have no other choice. It becomes them.

Alex practiced thousands of hand and leg movements in order to feel comfortable climbing without ropes.

Alex has been preparing for that climb his entire life. He wanted to experience the view from the top and the excitement of reaching the peak. He first started climbing when he was a kid.

He had repetition and practice, but it was his obsession that made mastery possible.

Are You Truly Living?

When the mundane, noise, and everyday fade away, you are left with your true self. You will be able to explore and experience your true passion in this moment of truth. Alex is climbing mountains. He loves the feeling of accomplishment he gets when he reaches the summit, and the breathtaking views that make all of his hard work worthwhile. He is connecting with nature and all life.

You can see Alex’s soul when he climbs. He is connecting to something deeper. He’s discovering a new sense of purpose. He’s truly living. He’s fully alive.

With all of the opportunities to connect and make money online, what we are giving up is often greater than what we are getting. Technology can have its own set of risks and dangers as a result of this. We are trading time. Let’s make the most of it. We will never get back. It’s important to remember that life is short.

The internet never sleeps. The internet will always have something new to offer no matter how much you browse. Neither do we.

We All Disappear One Day

We don’t have much time to create in today’s world. It’s important to take time to appreciate the things that don’t last forever. This is not the internet. The speed that connects us erases us. It can be hard to stay connected. We all disappear.

I don’t feel alive when I’m scheduling Tweets, scrolling through Instagram, or writing a I don’t know if the post will rank on search engines.

I feel most alive when I spend time with people I love. I don’t want to spend my time on it if it doesn’t fall into those three categories. I will only focus on activities that are enjoyable and beneficial.

How much time do you have left with your loved ones? You have to make the most of it. Not as much as you think. Check this out:

How are you spending your time? I’m learning new skills that will help me in the future.

One of the reasons I wrote Financial Freedom, was because it’s a physical book. It’s an object. It is me outside of me. A variety of different ideas could be represented by this sentence. You can hold it. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket. It does not require an internet connection. It is an ideal choice for areas with limited internet access. After I leave, it will be on a bookshelf and in libraries. I hope readers enjoy and learn from my work.

The ideas spread through time. The impact of the ideas has been felt for centuries and will continue to do so in the future.

I was watching a documentary on the dark side of social media. It was a stark reminder of how quickly our digital lives are changing.

There was a lot of effort lost in an instant. It was a tragedy that no one could have predicted.

This moment is all there is. All there ever will be.

How do you get away from the mundane?

How do you find your interests? Taking the time to evaluate your motives can help you understand your obsession.

How do you decide if it’s worth it? It’s importantto consider how much effort and resources you will need to commit in order to get the rewards of your time.

Just ask yourself a simple question:

Is this enough to make me feel alive? I know that this is what it means to be alive, and I can feel it in my veins.
