Discover more from A Better Life
Thursday Talk-Thread 7
Let's talk about 10-10-10-10 goals (and the huge milestone we just hit)
Heeellloooooo there. Hope you’ve been doing well and kicking ass every day. Before we dive into today’s topic, guess what happened a while back?
WE CROSSED 1000 SUBSCRIBERS!
And guess who’s to thank? It’s YOU. So, thank you from the depths of my heart → It’s the fact that every piece I publish here goes DIRECTLY into the inbox of hundreds and now 1000 people that motivates me to keep going.
As much as I love to write A Better Life, it does take quite some effort. To commemorate this occasion, I’ve thought of adding a paid subscription option.
Now, mind you, NOTHING changes. The free version is going to continue EXACTLY the same → you’ll receive the Scalers, Talk-Threads, and Posts as is.
The paid subscription would be just an upgrade → Extra value-packed exciting stuff. Since this newsletter has always been about the readers, I designed a short survey.
With just 3 MCQ questions, it shouldn’t take you more than a minute. So, kindly fill it up → It’s basically to decide how to structure the paid subscription and what all to offer.
Now, with that out of the way, let’s dive into today’s topic.
What are your 10-10-10-10 goals? I mean, what do you want to achieve in 10 days, 10 weeks, 10 months, and 10 years?
I’ll go first (as usual). In 10 days, I want to get a writing-related project (a surprise) out and complete some long-pending bank work.
In 10 weeks, I want to achieve some strength numbers in the gym → A 315 lbs squat, a 225 lbs bench, and a 75 lbs pullup 2 Rep max. Also, I want to complete and release my audio productivity course.
In 10 months, I want to hit 10K followers on Medium and grow this newsletter to 2k subscribers. In the gym, I want to get back to sumo deadlifting and achieve a 550 lbs sumo deadlift. I’d also want to get a 265 lbs bench and a 350 lbs squat.
In 10 years, I want to be financially independent and write fantasy novels. Maybe I’ll have a personal development company, I’m not sure.
As the timeframe stretches, the goals will invariably become vaguer, so don’t worry → Just the act of putting them down in words increases your motivation and clarity towards them.
