What are some reliable telltale signs that you're life is progressing or improving?

August 12, 2022

Hard to tell by just being you and your own. Having a journal of some sort is good to get your thoughts out but what is a general good rule of measure? Is it job, career growth? What if you're seeking self rediscovery and not just the money? The amount of texts you get? What's a good measure?

I think you need to look at it the opposite way.

Having a bird’s eye view is going to be too subjective and really difficult to measure.

Instead, breaking down your areas that were fucked up and see how far you’ve come. Some will be measurable; some will not.

I like to categorize my goals by mind/body/soul. Maybe you can use this is a template

Emotional control - When I came here I was a raging alcoholic. In hindsight, alcohol was a symptom. My problem was emotion and impulse control. Since using the headspace app and joining an accountability group (less feeling|more doing), I am less reactive, maintain a fairly even mood and am so much more confident in myself.

Gym - I weighed 130lbs and my max bench was 135 when I walked back into the gym a few years ago. Today, I’m 190 and repping 250-260.

Job/Finances - I was stuck in a job that payed ok but I hated it. As a way to cope with anxiety/depression/divorce, I racked up a shit ton in credit card debt. I busted my ass by re and revising my resume and practiced interviewing. I’ve been in my new job for a year now and received roughly a 20% increase from where I was. I’ve eliminated $10k in debt, built a sizable savings account and will be paying off my car next month. I don’t worry about money anymore.

job that paid ok but


Although payed exists (the reason why autocorrection didn't help you), it is only correct in:

  • Nautical context, when it means to paint a surface, or to cover with something like tar or resin in order to make it waterproof or corrosion-resistant. The deck is yet to be payed.

  • Payed out when letting strings, cables or ropes out, by slacking them. The rope is payed out! You can pull now.

Unfortunately, I was unable to find nautical or rope-related words in your comment.

Beep, boop, I'm a bot

Good rule of measure is entirely up to you. What matters to me is different to you.

What's important is to set measurable goals, if possible in a timeframe. That way you can sit & think about how far you've come, how far you have to go, and can re-evaluate how to progress further.

I done this to get to a certain salary, losing weight & hitting gym about 7 years ago, buying my first car & rolex, and now at 26 I've given myself new targets to hit for the next few years, and some even longer term goals.

Basically, set goals, be obsessed about them & re-evaluate when needed.

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