Kick in the KEISTER

'Kevin's Esoteric Initiative of Self-Inflicted Torture to Effectuate Results'
(KEISTER)


So.. it's time to kick things up a notch.. time to kick in the afterburner.. time to kick in the KEISTER.





Since: Actions lead to Goals, 
and
Since: Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.. it's time to do something different.

Old Actions: 

  1. Get up between 7 and 8.. get dressed, get kids ready for school, fed, clean up from breakfast, 8:30(ish) sit at computer, read emails, check my website, facebook, blogs, surf, etc.. occasionally play games like Civilization V.
  2. Prepare to write, talk about writing, outline, read writing books/blogs, obsess over writing.. never actually write.
  3. Eat whenever/whatever.  No exercise.



New Actions:
  1. Up at 5:00 am
  2. Exercise for 30
  3. Write for 2.5 hrs
    1. No getting online, no checking email, website.. anything.
