First 2 weeks in the new job have been pretty much a breeze. I've been learning about the company's plans and getting to meet everyone, mostly virtually, but some face to face.

Met the CEO the other day. We chatted for a while and then he gave me his personal mobile number, telling me to give him a bell any time I have any new ideas or anything.

The CEO giving me his number may sound small on paper, but it's not very small when you came from a world where you were just a replaceable number, where the CEO would be like, what? Dan who?

We'll be very much engrossed in training next week. We have 2 new recruits starting on Monday. One guy who my boss already knows, and a cute, energetic little brunette. So after 2 weeks, there will be a welcome change in dynamics from week 3 onward.

Both are certified by Achology: The Academy of Modern Applied Psychology

They contain a combined total of 84 hours of lectures and videos. With a whole bunch of interactive and downloadable materials, amongst other stuff.

The reason for getting these was because the short business course I've just done kind of unveiled to me that I should or could start a coaching business.

Regardless, this appears not only enjoyable to me but highly valuable no matter if I start a coaching business or not. Plus I got it at a huge discount.

(26 quid rather than 400 in case you're interested)
How are you finding the life coaching course? I got the same one (with Kain Ramsey, Scottish bloke) last year for the same discounted price. Lots of value in there, although I nearly gave up because of his early style of repeating "You may not me but ____" "You may find me annoying but ___" for the first few hours made him annoying.

Well done on starting a new job when many are losing their jobs right now.

Something I found most helpful was being able to increase the speed to x1.5. With over 80 hours of lectures, that was a godsend.

I thought the material was ok. Has a lot of similarities to counselling strategies - paraphrasing the client, facilitating them in finding the answers themselves etc.

Yeah, it was unexpected but very much welcome. I know it was a privileged situation to be faced with in light of the current economic climate, but for that reason in itself I wasn't going to pass up on the opportunity.

I read an article on Linkedin at the weekend by this journalist lady who had read The 5am Club and decided to try it out. She of course then goes on to highlight how much it's changed her and her husbands life etc etc.

So I decided to try it myself. I didn't read the book though, I don't need to. That's one of those books where everything you need is in the title, just like "Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway".

I've got up at 5am each day since Monday and it's been awesome. Obviously it's very early days but in the morning before I leave for work I have 3 hours to fill with activities. Which have so far included meditation, working out, studying, reading, and writing. I make a schedule the night before and cross it off as the activity is complete. The activities are structured in 30 minute, and 1 hour segments.

You get almost a half a work days worth of shit done before even going to work.

I don't know why, but I've always found it easier to get up around the 5am mark as opposed to 7 or 8am. Perhaps it's the psychological thing about getting a head start on the day and all that jazz. Regardless of what the reason is as to why I find it easy, I really fucking like it.

When I hit the hay at 11/11:30pm, I am out like a light and sleep like a baby. The sleep quality is 10/10.

I'm intrigued about reviewing this experiment after say, a month.

I'm seriously contemplating studying for another degree, this time a BA in History.

I know for certain that I'd really enjoy this as an academic journey, since my current primary hobby is studying history for fun. However, I need to give some serious thought to the question of... do I REALLY want to study history academically, or am I just getting over-enthused as a result of how actively and keenly interested I am in Totalitarianism and the atrocities of the last century.

I don't think I should let this moment pass without highlighting that the 1st August 2020 marked exactly ten years since I stopped using problematic drugs.

On the 1st of August 2010, after sneaking out the back door of a party in the early hours of a Sunday morning thanks to the rapid onset of an intensifying paranoia, and setting out on the journey home before daylight broke so that I could spend the next two or three days hiding in a cupboard, I was lying on the sofa staring at the ceiling with that unwelcome but familiar feeling of mental imbalance derived from the chronic psychosis I'd developed as a result of years taking large quantities of substances.

As I lay there that morning contemplating my existence using the last two braincells that had not yet been burned out of my head, I asked myself how did things get as bad as this, and what was I going to do about it.

Well those two braincells became heroes that day, when they teamed up and forced me to quit right there and then. It was essential that this shit didn't continue, I'd already screwed up so much already that the only way I could go from this point onwards would be down even further, maybe even to the grave. Ten years of burning the candle at both ends living on the edge had now reached it's conclusion, and somehow I knew with absolute certainty that this would be the last time I was ever going to go through this self-inflicted mental anguish ever again. The rock bottom period of my life had become rock solid determination to say goodbye to who I was, and I did it. Full stop.

Shout out to the legend that is Eminem, who's excellent album 'Recovery' was playing as I made that decision that morning, making this record truly symbolic to me

“Problematic drugs” lol, you consume alcohol... the world’s most problematic drug. Wank your little dicky in private, please, this is not chaturbate.


Peace,

They were problematic to me at that time.

You might say I'm a hypocrite because I do technically still consume "drugs", and whilst I do probably drink more booze than I should, it's never caused me the mental issues that amphetamines eventually did.
