Right now I have gotten

Challenges goes on....
Meditation (22nd day)
Continuing....my previous record was 80 days of meditation, stopped and finally getting back into it. For the past 22 days I was able to slowly meditate for 15 mins though some days I still break before time up though getting to 15 mins more and more days.

Picking Nose (2 days) I finally managed to go from picking my nose daily in public to certain days not picking my nose at all....My next goal is to not pick my nose at work for seven days continuously.

GSD system of top 3 things (X days) I stopped counting this as it is an (almost) daily habit, I write down what is to be done on Trello free version and check em to tick off the things I have to do. I however is not very strict about GSD's method of having only three items that I need to finish before moving in new items as I shuffles items alot back and forth, if any of you have any experience on this I appreciate it.

Next challenge Make my bed (starting today)

I know many of this challenges seems minor, but my motto is to learn to manage myself better, to be discipline. I have many more goals to get at, get better at public speaking, be more confident etc, but let's get this smaller challenge going.

Challenges conquered
Early rise (done) in 2020
I gave myself this goal, though I never wrote it here. To wake up at 6:30 each day, I have by and large done this since early April, except for weekends and odd days. If any my goal is to move the goal post to wake up at 6am. The challenge is whether I can continue once I get back to work in the office, where evening socials craw back in. The biggest inspiration is that many successful people have this habit.
No sugar (done) in 2019
No Facebook (done) in 2019
No coffee (done) in 2019
Exercise & diet (done) in 2020
It's not a challenge per say as I have always been doing moderate exercise 3 - 4 times a day, but I have recently take it to the next level by myself and upping my regime to a level I have never done before - approximating my calories, protein and also recording down my workouts. What I need to do next is to buy a mini kitchen scale and confirm guesses
No Fap / No Porn (done) in 2020 20 days (Feb 26), stop counting, 20 days (Apr 26), 20 days(May 15), 7 days (May 23), 20 days (June 12), Day 0(June 13). This is probably my biggest challenge and just an example how hard I finally got to my third 20 day goal yesterday and last night I actually fap four time.....I know I will not be able to NoFap forever so I set a 20 day challenge and tell myself to do it thrice. And I managed to do a 3 x 20 days NoPorn and NoFap thus graduating from this goal. I am going to list this goal as achieved unless I fallback to fapping, my next goal is to NoFap for 30 days....as an obvervation. As said, I've done longer abstinence before but the mandatory stay home is making it a whole new challenge hence I gave myself a challenge to do three 20 days abstinence to consider myself overcoming this.

For those who actually read, a big thank you!

So after 21 days of no fap I slid back into fapping for five times in the past four days...again. It's really hard to do this with all the restrictions going out.... It's day zero again. When I first started no fap it was the hardest the first few days and I only lasted couple days before giving up, now it's easier to get into no fap but the deal breaker is that once I slide back in after X days I will just fap and fap as if it's like gorging after fasting....

Other issues I am facing is that I can't really get the momentum going for meditation despite doing for over six months....in those easier days I can just sit for 15 minutes and try to space out my random thoughts, but in those lousier days I can only do it for five minutes before giving up, the myriad of random thoughts got the best of me.

Really appreciate if guys that have been there done that give some advice.
