Joined the 5am club again this morning. Got a good bit of experience with it on the back end of the summer. For some reason I find it easier to get up at 5am than any other time.

Didn't make any kind of list of new years resolutions, just had a few ideas in my head of changes I was going to make.

There's only really a few main ones; joining the 5am club, meditation right after I wake up, followed by a working out again after my elbow injury put me out of use for a year, then have other productive shit scheduled between the workout, and work.

As for scheduling, that's another one "make a damn schedule" - Dr Peterson. I discovered the benefits of this last year, periodically writing my weeks tasks and shit down and ticking them off. Having a schedule even if you didn't hit it with 100% accuracy is simply better than not having one.

Deleted Facebook off my phone on the 3rd of January. Blows my mind as well as saddens me a little that right now I know hundreds of people who have probably spent 150 hours wastefully scrolling that shit this year already. Instagram I logged out of about 5 months ago and I couldn't get back in due to a password error and I was fucking relieved. I was like bye bye cunt.

The biggest point I wish to put down on this virtual paper is that in my experience it's best not to start making any of your hoped-for changes until about 7, 10, 14 days into the new year. I figured that's why 80% of people who make new years resolutions fail, because they "fucked up" by the time two or three weeks have passed when they should only really be making a proper go of things around that time. The best thing to do is definitely to allow the first week or two to pass by and don't worry about it. During this time I was making a few mental notes and plan as to what I was going to do. I didn't need to write anything down because I'd successfully sustained these habits before. If it's new to you by all means write things down.

Glad I held off on starting the History degree, at least for now. It would have been a huge commitment to make at a time when I'm just not in a position to make such a commitment. And anyways, I'd rather first of all see what comes of this prospective online university Jordan Peterson has been talking about for the last couple of years.

Gotta get my #gainz back

In December I made a submission in response to a Facebook post created by Dr Jordan Peterson within which he was running a Christmas holiday giveaway campaign for his Discovering Personality course.

To enter, you were required to state your case as to why you think you deserve to receive it for free. It's normally about $150. My submission has earned me the course.

I know Kowalski is absolutely delighted for me ✌😎

As part of the Discovering Personality course you also get a coupon code for free access to his Understanding Myself personality test. I've done a few of these types of tests before but the free online versions I done were crap compared to how detailed, informative and relevant the breakdown and explanations on this one was.


My results of the big five personality trait scientific model are..


Agreeableness: Moderately High - 65th percentile

Conscientiousness: Exceptionally High - 97th percentile

Extraversion: Exceptionally High - 97th percentile

Openness to Experience: Very High - 91st percentile

Neuroticism: Exceptionally Low - 3rd percentile


I responded to the 100 statements as honestly as I could, and I'm really happy with the results. Having read through all the detailed descriptions of not only the big five but also their sub categories / further aspects, this was a really good way to kick off the course, as opposed to jumping right into the lectures and associated work. I'm excited for it, now that I've got a lot more to think about regarding me myself and I.

Impressed so far.

Curious results Dan. I wouldn't mind knowing about these 5 myself as Jordan often rattles on about them; especially my agreeableness (which I suspect is too high).

Is it still "available?"

If you really put the effort in to your responses as honestly and accurately as you can, the results are quite astounding.

I haven't been on Facebook since the 3rd of January, so I'm really not sure if it's still available through the holiday giveaway. Although I'd imagine it was closed after Christmas and the submissions were reviewed and the winners awarded (like me).

Drat. I'm looking for personality traits that I'm short-coming in. I suspect I'm too agreeable in my case as I don't generate much emotion in the majority of interactions I have face to face.

Still, ta for that. I'll look.

Kewl cheers for that.

For my OCEAN score I got 67%, 58, 33, 62.5 and 65 respectively. Report didn't tell me anything about percentiles.

TBH though if I really wanted to do something I was concerned about (e.g. altering agreeableness and neuroticism) then I'd pay to see a shrink rather than get this report. Something I'm considering when lockdown starts to relinquish.

Just did a quick calculation on a domain name I bought and have held for two years.

On roughly 15 quid a year, twice, there has been a 4723% increase in the value of this domain.

The domain in question is quite a catchy and snappy one. I'm not being biased when I say I believe it's worthy of being a big brand name. With the market in which it fits being the academic / intellectual / clever / but with a touch of comedy, built right in to the domain.

Whilst I'm not willing to let this particular domain go for 1500, it has given me serious food for thought.

I have two other domains on my roster. One is the .co.uk of the aforementioned domain, and another. Both have only increased by about 400/500% in comparison, but even that, if you had 100 domains doing the same thing, is not to be overlooked.

It should be clear by this point where I'm going with this.

I'm considering domain flipping as minimal time investment business.


EDIT: Why the fuck am I posting this here? These words would be better on a business forum.
