August was quite a month for me. I had good days and bad days.

  • Good days because I travelled to Pondicherry and Bengaluru with my close friends. This trip was one of those things which we have been discussing/day dreaming since our first college days. We got to realise this dream last month – Makes me happy 🙂
  • Bad days because I broke up with the girl I thought I would live my life with. I felt depressed for 2-3 days, but moved on pretty quickly. Thanks to few close friends, online articles, and a bit of self-motivation.

Quick tip on dealing with heartbreaks/failures is to have multiple happiness baskets in life as suggested by Tim Ferriss. The concept of having multiple happiness baskets is to have/do different things which makes you happy. For instance, I love playing football, cycling, designing, sketching…etc. The point of having/doing multiple things that makes you happy is to have backup when you fail at one of them. For example, if I lose my leg one day (which I don’t want) and I can’t play football or cycle anymore, there will still be designing and sketching that I can do which will keep me happy. So, my life won’t get blank and dark all of a sudden. So work on creating different happiness baskets….it works…..trust me.

Moving on, there are things to achieve and things to enjoy in life 🙂

I have been missing out on goals in the past few months because I set a lot of them. So this time, I’ll be a bit realistic based on past records. Here are my goals for this month (September/October) posted below.

Goals for September/Octorber 2015:

  • Exercising every alternate day – I recently came across a youtube video [Link] of two guys who built pretty amazing stamina, fitness level, and body. They achieved all that without hitting the gym. The video explains the workout process they follow…which suggest to workout extensively a day and rest the next so on and so forth. So, I have started following the same routine of exercising alternate days and leaving weekends to take breaks and rest [Update: 3 weeks done]
    Here’s what my activity log looks like :

    Fitbit data
    Week’s activity – Data by Fitbit Flex

    A healthy day 🙂 – Data by Fitbit Flex
  • Buy and eat dry fruits, 2 bananas and 2 eggs daily – Exercising, building stamina and building muscle needs nutrients. So forming a habit to get those nutrients on a daily basis. By the way, dry fruits have some amazing health benefits.
    Here are few: [Link]

  • Read book: The 7 habits of highly effective people – [Online purchase link] [Update: Read 80/400 pages]
  • Clear 20k/70k of debt – Have around 70k debt as I switched to a different location and bought things along the way. But, I have stopped using my credit card and resolved to not using it again. Debt is bad. [Update: 50k left 🙂 ]
  • Sankalpsinha.com’s landing page re-design – And also start developing if get time. [Update: Development started]
  • One blog post other than this – Framed it roughly – Writing on forming habits.
  • Create contact backup in an Excel sheet – I recommend everyone to have a contact backup somewhere in your email or saved in hard-drive for emergencies – Best is to have it online for easy accessibility. Also, send one of the copies to your relatives and friends. More on this in different blog post. [Update: 0% done]

  2. I almost never leave comments, but after looking at a few of the comments on this page Shopping for….guest columnist: fashion designer Cynthia Rowley | In The Bag. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it just me or does it look as if like a few of the comments look as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? And, if you are writing on other sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of all of all your social community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  3. Caro Luogotente la categoria SU non è cresciuta pur avendo un enorme potenziale anche grazie a chi come te si nasconde dietro al nome di una moglie. è una lettera troppo tecnica per essere scritta da una donna estranea all’amministrazione. a mio avviso è una paura immotivata la tua!! nessuno ti avrebbe tolto un capello!! la Costituzione Repubblicana ti avrebbe garantito e protetto ampiamente!!

  4. This is something I’ve definitely been working on for my internet site. I’ve recently made some wholesale changes to my web page to make it simpler for others to share my material across their social platforms as well.

  5. The longer the cut ‘n paste, the more convoluted the bullshit…not that that the cut ‘n pasters understand exactly what is it their cut ‘n pastes, mind.The more they cut ‘n paste, the more desperate they seem.

  6. bonjour a tous, je voudrais savoir tous les pourcentages des billets acheter dans chaque province de loto-max dans les 2 derniere annee et le pourcentage des gagnant dans chaque province aussi merci, je me pose de serieuse question sur loto-quebec,pourquoi si peux de gagnant au quebec ? je pense que loto quebec fait des doubles des mise eclair a grande echelle au quebec, peux tu repondre a sa merci.

  7. Rastgele olmayan eylemin temelinde istek yatar. İsteğin de motoru arzulardır.İnaçlar değil.. inanç insanı eyleme sevk edemez, soğuktur inançlar. Arzularımıza köle olurlar. Bazen onlara kayıtsız kalırız, o zaman ölü inançlar olurlar. bazen de bizi aksini yapmaya iterler. o zaman da tam zıttını yaparız. İnaçlar, isteklerimiz elinde oyuncaktır.

  8. runasim I never took Roth too seriously, but I've enjoyed his boods for their entertainment value. He has a similar effect on me than the many old English mysteries I've read. They're relaxing, because they don't require much intellectual input, while the occasional insightful passages are quite rewarding, because they come as a surprise.

  9. You really should really think about working in growing this amazing site into a dominant authority on this market. You obviously have a concrete grasp from the topics we all are searching for on this web site anyways and you could probably even produce a dollar or even three from some advertisements. I would certainly dive into following recent topics and also raising the amount of posts you offered and My partner and i bet you’d start to see some great traffic soon. Just a new thought, good fortune regardless!

  10. Hello,How do others get involved with this? I posted this idea on my Linked-In Generating Social Capital group a few months ago and there is a group of us who have been discussing this around my blog and in the coffee shops.If there is a way to engage some of us who are also working on this (in Canada mostly) I would be most appreciative in being a part of the process and bringing my network to the table.Thank you for getting back to me,Gena

  11. These are results have to be a complete joke, so much unrelated content is now surfaced to the top it's sickening. As a funny example check this one out….Search VIAGRA and look at the results on first page for USA queries.Two completely unrelated .edu's without viagra or ED in their content.Another site about poetry with not even a mention of viagra anywhere to be found.Then two more sites that in google that have this site may be compromised warnings.LOL what a joke this update is.Sell your Google stocks now while you can.
