Facing so many temptations in digital and so many other forms, a person like you and I who wants to get big projects done must learn to eliminate distractions.
I know very well that there is no one I can rely on but myself to shut those noises so that I can stay focus.
The cruel reality is, the last thing the media wants is us staying focus, and they do it with so much effort, trying to lead us to an endless road of visual and audio stimulus that will eventually use up our energy tank.
我相信能照著做的人，他日必定擁有過人的成就。但人生實在有太多變數了，又不是生活在軍營，總有別人來打擾，總有urgent though not important的事要處理。
再說，一次過定七個目標，太耗意志力了，國外談論goal setting的self help書都反對這樣做，認為chasing two rabbits leaves you catching no rabbit (追兩隻兔的人一隻兔也抓不到)。
Rely on no one. Be your very own coach with your very own SELF-DISCIPLINE. Here I want to share with you some rules I have been adopting that help me move towards my ultimate goals.
1 No phone while walking and unplug after midnight.
2 Charge my phone in the morning and don’t recharge unless there is an emergency case, so that the battery of the phone serves as an indicator of my own energy level during that day, reminding myself not to overwork.
3 Don’t use the computer after shower and/or before night time skin care, because the keyboard and mouse are dirtier than the toilet seat.
4 Go to bed before midnight.
5 Have family dinner at least once a week.
6 Have at least one homemade meal throughout the day.
7 Swallow before having another mouthful of food.
8 Limit to one magazine every month.
9 Go to the yoga centre at least 3 times a week.
10 Go to the library at least once a month.
11 Sit with legs close together.
12 Notify my students before my arrival.
13 Digitalise the current journal before starting a new one.
