Anyway, I’ll even do most of the heavy lifting for you … telling you exactly how to set life-changing long and short term goals for yourself, how to structure these goals so they’re just the right amount of challenging and how to hunt after them like a mission in the Witcher 3.
Maybe you’ve already tried journaling, but if you’re like most people, you’ll do them for a couple of days (weeks if you’re lucky) and then stop. There seem to be two kinds of journals out there: Those that take forever to fill in (costing you a ton of energy) and those that don’t really change anything.
Well, let me stop you right there: With my background in board game design (the first in a series of games releases in early 2020), I have a bit of experience in making simple tasks meaningful and rewarding. In board game design, every component needs to be absolutely essential for gameplay and the enjoyment of the players, and this is a rule I followed for designing this journal as well.
And so because of that, there is very little free writing in this book. Most of what you’ll be doing is crossing off checkboxes and drawing in lines. The average time it took my test groups to do this was 4 minutes and 32 seconds a day.
The methods presented in this book are all based on my own research-driven experiments from the past decade and have been cross-checked by two independent therapists. If you took all of my money, my contacts and my reputation away from me so I’d have to start from scratch, this is exactly what I would focus on to get back to where I am today.
After all, these are the mindsets that got me here in the first place. I used them to crack 300,000 subscribers on YouTube, to accumulate 10,000,000 views, to write a best-selling book, to sell three of my board games to one of Germany’s biggest publishers and to marry the love of my life.
My stuff works, and I know that if you pick this up, you’ll be thrilled with the results you’ll get in your life. This is why I’m sought out by the most successful hit songwriters in the country, because I deliver.
