Today, I went to the hairdresser and got my hair cut 2cm shorter. I want to let it all grow out, but went to the hairdresser to get the dead ends cut off.
After that, I went home and took a cold shower.
A cold shower? But Mark, that’s so uncomfortable!
Yes. Yes, it is. After 8 months of continuously taking cold showers, it’s still uncomfortable. At maximum I last five minutes before I am done with it.
But when you’re done, oh boy, what a feeling!
You feel as if you are gazing at a starry night, feeling small and as if there are new worlds to be conquered.
You feel as if you are a Superman, ready to save the world.
You feel as if your body is ready to go beyond its limits.
You feel like you will definitely get something out of this day.
I won’t lie. Usually I start my showers warm, cleanse myself and shampoo my hair. Then when I’m clean, I turn the knob to cold and breathe in and out deeply.
It takes discipline to turn that knob to cold. Discipline and a high amount of zero fucks given.
It’s like the Nike commercial. Just do it. You will be a better person after.
Knowing that it will make my day better makes me transition from warm to cold.
It’s because I hate lazy days. I feel worthless when I do nothing and my confidence crashes to the ground like an airplane that was shot out of the sky by a Buk rocketlauncher.
That’s because being productive is what defines you as a human being.
You are valued by your output, not your input. Anyone can make it.
We all just have to obtain the right customs.
I have experimented with some lifestyle design things and am sharing what has been working for me.
Cold showers, meat, excercise, reading, not masturbating… Read this blog and you will find out more.
Don’t worry, the blog is free.
I am digressing. Let us continue to what I’ve been doing today.
After the cold shower today, I went to the postal office to send out some editions of Paisley to friends who had commented on the Give Away blog from yesterday. There are still some spots left, so don’t hesistate to leave a comment if you want one. Anyone can enter.
I did some productive-ass shit. Wrote some pages for my upcoming book, did 100 pushups, lifted weights, brought my bike to the repair shop, ate a hamburger, cooked salmon for my mother. Did the dishes. Read the Illiad.
Taking cold showers really makes you a more productive man.
I don’t argue against warm showers. I just tell you that those are best taken before bed, to relax your body.
Cold showers are best in the morning.
Taking cold showers is good for your semen, too. Hot baths kill your semen while cold showers leave your semen intact.
Try not to kill anybody with that loaded gun.
Until next time.
