    I am interested to hear about what happened about your talking about Millenials/Gen Z. I am always surprised that people try to pigeonhole other people so much and to try to prejudge based off of a group of years in which they are born.

    That’s what I’m trying to retrain myself to do. Something is better than nothing, but it’s easier for me to say than do. I’m certainly getting better at it, though.

    When it comes to professional development - I've decided to give myself a point until the end of the contract because I'm just doing so much. A couple of weeks ago, one of our computers started breaking down and I got this message that I need to change a fan because it's running hot. It's a switcher computer and we use it for show recording, streaming, show support and it's an essential piece of equipment. So, I call IT, they take one look at it and say: "this is too complicated, we don't deal with those computers," and they walk away, never to be seen again. And I'm standing there like ok, I have a degree in film production, I mean, I am also a technical person but opening up a computer and doing this is another level for me. So I literally googled the sh*t out of this and did it myself. Happy to report that the computer now lives and I did it. And at that exact moment I realized, once again, I'm not paid enough to do this.

    Also, I started doing a couple of leadership/management company courses to better myself as a manager, leader, whatever, so by the time I'm done with the contract I'll have 4 completed courses, so that's fun.

    Alright, now a quick little post about discipline. I believe, at least I found it to be true for me, that discipline stems out of two factors: character/personality and habits. I've met people who are incredibly disciplined and will just do whatever needs to be done. No second thought to it, they just do it. One of my cousins is like that. My grandmother is like that. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people. I've always been a procrastinator and if something is not urgent, I'll try not doing it. This is where habit building comes into place. When I start building a habit, it's not just that not doing something might be bad for me (I'm talking about good habits replacing bad ones) but not doing something also feels bad. This is especially true when I start replacing a bad habit with a good one. It feels bad to do the good thing and not to do the bad thing. But, through persistence the good habit starts feeling good. So, ever since last year, when I started this thread, my primary goal was to get my life together and, as a side effect, I also started building some new habits. Now, another thing about me is that whenever life gets a bit though the first things I'll throw out of the window are my physical and mental health. I became aware of this and I'm trying to change this. I had a pretty tough period in my life a couple of years ago and everything went down the drain. I went into a spiraling depression and I gained 10kg in a year. That's not 10kg of muscle, unfortunately. (: And then, slowly, slowly I started changing. I started working out, had periods when I trained and periods when I'd let everything go. These cycles also lasted for a couple of years. Just before I found this thread I had this epiphany. I'll try and do something every day. Even it's the littlest thing, like the Hand workout or Footwork. But I need to do something. And ever since, I've been changing for the better. This is why staying disciplined is so important to me. It's not about the streak, ultimately, I don't care about that. But I want to earn it fair and square. And when I do, I'll feel a sense of accomplishment. Like I do, every time I add a new little victory to page 1.

    A rest day can sometimes do more good than just striving to keep the streak. You are doing great, keep it up

    streak is secondary (a steak always primary ). Joke aside, always listen to your body. if it calls for a rest day, than you need it. And don´t forget, you make the rules. Not doing a program or a workout, but a heavy chore or just a bit of walking instead is also doing something. The same goes for winning against yourself and standing up, etc. Just think about it.You define your streak. Wish you a great start into your weekend.

    I think a streak mustn't be a goal on itself, as I hear you, a total rest day could be more beneficial for your overall well being than keeping your streak no matter what

    I think I found the laziest way to keep my streak going but today all I want is to watch a movie and eat snacks in peace.

    So after this I basically crashed. I am re-starting my streak from today onward, I realized I only have 60 more days to go, and I'll do my best for those 60 days. (:
