Do not feel guilty, be like the stoics

Here we go again

I'm really commiting to do this daily log for myself.

Today, was pretty good. Althought I didn't reach my goals or follow my schedule and habits I don't feel to much guilt.

Of course, I felt anxious and distracted through out the day but I'm feeling better and better as I'm completing this NOFAP challenge which is actually amazing. I'm also trying to practice not to feel guilt of what I did, and I think that is different of regretness because regret as an action might teach you one thing or two, but guilt is just the feeling and that really don't help me at all.

So, not great day but still very good, after my meditation I cleared my mind which gave me some thoughts about doing it twice a day and maybe for longer time but for now 10 to 15 min is fine for me.

I hope tomorrow I can hit better my schedule and I'll try my best for the really important things which are my business with my dad and learning new things every day.

Oh, I forgot, I lost like $50 today (out of 200) so that piss me off but I'm really trying to mantain calm in this trading part of my life as I planned to do it for a long time because I really like it!!!!.

Anyway, I need to write a bit more everyday, work in our family business, take my online courses (organize that) and just enjoy the day. I think that the most important thing to improve is the whole feeling of the house as is really shallow and sad after my brother left. How to fix it? lets see

Oh hey, welcome back! I was thinking of you yesterday - in mid-March you wrote that long essay/blog post about how timing is critical for an entrepreneur, and right then covid hit, and you mostly disappeared and I felt bad for you. Good luck with everything!

Regrets are just a way to realize past mistakes to not make them again in the future.

@Achaius Hey! Thanks for the welcome back! Yeah man, I quit my job right before the pandemic and went to work in the family business which is really bad because of it so I was in a bit of a downtrend. But I'm back and I'm glad, thank you for remembering me and I wish you well also!.
Actually I wrote my first official articles this couple of months in the lockdown if you want to check them out :D

@JustMegawatt Regret is good for us, guilt is not. Thank you for the insight
