This is an ongoing progress thread. See the previous week here.

Whats happened?
Got back into the swing of uni. Also spent a ridiculous amount of time playing chess. I've created ChemStencil V2, which builds upon the first prototype. I made adjustments, rearrangements & redesigns, and it didn't take long to make. Hopefully should get a mockup in the next week.

Also created a networking event for the Uni, planning to have many societies come together over the next few weeks.

What's next?
- Get a physical mockup of ChemStencil V2
- Continue my new habits from last week

A Gift to You.
I appreciate those who have followed a long, so I wanted to give back. I often find golden bits of information when listening to hours of content in dead time (car journeys, chores, ect). Here are two amazing phrases I heard this week:

....I then get to.... The idea of setting up rewards after completing something annoying
- If I hit the goal of squatting 70kg in the gym I then get to buy a new pair of shoes.
- If I become 1000 Elo in Chess, I then get to will get myself a pin badge to signify my goal.
- If I can get my first sale for ChemStencil, I then get to buy a fragrance I always wanted.

I get to.... its easy to forget how blessed we are.
- I whine about the gym, I get to go to the gym.
- Instead of complaining about the lecturers, I get to go to lectures & learn!
- Instead of feeling hopeless, I get to try and try again.
What a blessing.

What is your I then get to? What Is your I get to? Drop a comment, keep yourself accountable with me.

I hope you have a hard and difficult week, filled with challenges that will test you.

In my opinion and personal experience, the key to endless motivation is to completely forget about the outcome/reward you get afterwards and just focus 100% on the task.

Deriving pleasure from doing the activity itself. Letting the action be its own reward.

The more difficult the task, the better.

This is great brother, I will use this “i then get to” method and apply a reward system to life, instead of just buying whatever I want whenever, it’s an actual goal. Hell yeah ! And good luck to you my friend. Why are you so blessed to be in the right place and right time, many blessings towards you.
