Do you have a daily practice to improve 1% and using 90 day benchmarks

August 30, 2016

Summary: In the past 90 days have you been growing 1% and have a daily practice to keep growing the next 90 days. Or are you stuck threading water on your current path?

Body: The fear of facing the truth is uncomfortable for most of us. And living in the moment of the daily ritual of life is quite easy. Even though we might hate it. It's simply easier to hate one or multiple things, rather than take time to reflect and change what's not working.

How has your last 90 days been in health, freedom, money and relationships?

  • How long have you been unplugged?

  • What are your ten latest victories?

  • What are your three current sticking points? What part of it makes it hard?

  • What is your daily practice that makes you grow 1%? Why is this step important to you?

  • Can you trust your daily practice to give you the desired outcome for the next 90 days?

Example: Do you have a stable job and going to the gym, but have trouble finding time to approach new girls? Or have a stable long term relationship and approaching new girls daily, but feel stuck in your current career? Or you are going to the gym, earning more money each year and slaying pussy every week.

Maybe you are moving forward perfectly on your life path. Or maybe you need to correct course. Reading TRP is great to learn, but using the knowledge is just as important. Writing it out in private, or public makes you think.

Some say it’s good to keep your goals to your self to not get validation and praise, making you believe you’ve come a long way to achieve it. Others believe you should be public and tell all your friends because it puts pressure on you.

But all agree it’s good to have written down goals and practice daily to achieve them. By the way, this is not a measuring contest of who has the greatest success.

It's taking a moment to reflect and take the necessary steps to achieve your life goals.

Great progress in the gym, school and passing your drivers theory. What is your greatest struggle with women?

For me personally, it took about a year until I broke through the learning phase. And second year I had much greater success. Looks like you have a solid plan.

Finding motivation and meeting women. I did no-fap for 35 days and got three matches on tinder. Unfortunately none of these amounted to anything. Being in a campus for a technical college means there are only like two women present, one is spoken for and one is a diesel dyke. Basically the struggle is getting my foot in the door.

Try to learn social dancing. It's a great way to meet and be near women. The better you get = the more attention from women you get. And the hotter they'll be. Learn an international dance like salsa, kizomba or/and west coast swing and you can meet women everywhere in the world.

I know that feeling of "finding motivation", which is an invisible script for; I might fail. I might be awkward. She looks busy. She looks to fancy. I don't feel like like talking with her rigth now. I don't have my dream job yet. The people behind me are watching.

Just got home from walking in the city now and had a couple of small chats and one long chat with a German girl when I could easily have had ten.

There is only one way to get out of your head and improving. Say "hi" to one girl every day. Then. Two. Then three. Then do five every day.

As saying hi becomes easier and easier you will naturally want to extend the conversations.

At least that has worked well for me, it might work well for you.

I work in retail. I talk to plenty of women in a day. Like I said no-fap really helped with that issue.

I appreciate a lot of what you've had to say here.

I find myself in a similar mindset towards personal growth.

It's incredibly motivating to see someone tread along similar lines.

If there were only 3 books you could recommend for someone interested in personal growth, what would they be?

[–]hbPUA[S] 6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Three is a great number and I will expand on it for you to have a bunch of books to read as you feel like it. I often go back and forth between multiple books.


  • Meditations by Marcus Aurelius.
  • The Discourses by Epictetus

The idea economy

I used to be amazed how others could have such great ideas and be able to innovate markets. But reading these books and going deeper of what they recommend have made me come much closer to actually innovate my own thoughts. And influence others.

  • Choose Yourself by James Altucher
  • What to do when it's your turn, and it's always your turn by Seth godin
  • how I found freedom in a unfreeze world by Harry browne
  • Abundance by Peter har diamandis and Steven kotler


The first book I got as my five year LTR agreed we both should move on is how to win friends and influence people. Highly recommend it to start if you haven't already read it.

  • How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie
  • influence, the psychology of persuasion by Robert b cialdini
  • what every body is saying by Joe Navaro

Redpill literature

These are some great books that have helped me to develop the framework and a fun attitude (book of pook).

  • The book of pook by pook
  • models by Mark Manson
  • the Rational Male by Rollo Tomassi

Great stories

Great stories are read to develop better story telling. The better you are at story telling, the better you will connect and influence others.

  • The Old Man and The Sea by Ernst hemmingway
  • the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
  • The Wheel of time by Robert Jordan
  • 1984 by George Orwell

Book on sports and history

Read about the sports you practice or want to try on. Every great champion have studied both the sport and it's history. Because all the great games have already been played. Therefore looking for the past to predict the future is actually a great idea that I learned rather recently.

Practicing sports also develop the killer instinct to go hard in the gym, business and relationships.

This was a bit more then you asked for, but they have all influenced me a lot and highly recommend them all.

This is fantastic. I'll be adding these to my book list. I'm especially a fan of the reasons you gave for diving into genres of books that may not always strike a chord with self-improvement, like say sports.

As a side note, Dale Carnegie's book,"How To Win Friends and Influence People" profoundly and fundamentally changed my life for the better.

That was the first book that really cemented in me the idea that self-help books are not some voodoo magic—that there are some very practical and effective strategies at play there, if one takes the time to research them.

  • talking with girls and getting dates. I achieved it with one girl since my breakup but for me its hard cause i was always introvert. But im working on it ;)

  • getting my english certificate C2. But im a bit lazy with it, i have to establish a habit with learning.

  • How long have you been unplugged?

Three years.

  • What are your ten latest victories?
  1. I save at least 10% of my income in cash for emergency's and money that could be used to walk away.

  2. I have a job that pays my bills, shelter, food and hobbies.

  3. I have a second job that I actually enjoy and able to grow with.

  4. I have enough money that makes me not to worry about getting fired. Making me see a bigger picture.

  5. I have a long term relationship with a girl that I enjoy spending time with.

  6. I keep talking with five new girls every day to keep sharp and see if I want to meet her again.

  7. I have read from multiple books, wrote ideas how to improve myself, wrote this post, and taken walks in the woods.

  8. I have tried new things this week for example I tried escape rooms with my LTR. Where you get put into a room and have to solve multiple puzzles to win. It was really fun, and she sucked at it.

  9. I've quit porn and video games and consistently don't indulge in it.

  10. I invest in myself by reading books, taking online courses, and booking appointment such as naprapath treatment.

  • What are your three current sticking points? What part of it makes it hard?
  1. Working a job I used to enjoy, but now don't. Sitting down to research and start my online business.

  2. Working a lot leaving less energy to exercise, be creative, date new girls. Relaxing during work, to have more energy after.

  3. Having one LTR that could end any moment, leaving me in a dry spell. Moving forward and talking with new prospects.

  • What is your daily practice that makes you grow 1%? Why is this step important to you?

To sleep 8 to 9 hours. To read every day. To write ten ideas of what I've learned or things I want to do. To work to provide for myself and relationships. To exercise. To eat well.

It's important because I need to be healthy, before I can help others.

  • Can you trust your daily practice to give you the desired outcome for the next 90 days?

I can trust the daily practice and follow the simple steps because as I get a little better each day. I correct course automatically and have a system in place that leads to my goals.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
