Master Number

The Most Important Number on a Journey
(last month change: -2% )
46%
A number is generated from various most important totals of this month. If a number is increasing monthly = growth. If not, then it's a stage of 'stuck'. Or even worse, going down the hill... It's as simple as that. No more 'lying' to one-self, or walking through life in a blind!

Commentary

Finally! The new, more advanced Monthly Updates page is here... took me a great deal to get this one sorted.

This new approach made me look way deeper into everything about the campaign. Which also, by itself, pushed into re-structuring / improving the entire Blueprint as well. More space for improvements is definitely available, but it feels things are going on a right track now. 

What it also did was to teach me a new way of setting up and working on my goals. I realized I was doing it only half-hearted before, hence would end up missing on important details in a process. For all months from January to May... lessons learned!

All details below are to share the entire journey. My aim is to make these updates as Visual as possible. Yet, to keep it simple too (bearing in mind that it's the entire life journey is tracked here... there sure are many details to look into!)

In summary:

INSPIRED LIFESTYLE OF AN IDEAL DAY: was little shaky journey in April, as chart (above) shows. Holiday period and financial challenges (again) threw me around a bit. One detail I added to a chart was 'Loved My Days' indicator (green line). I learned that even though Ideal Day journey appears was bumpy, the 'Loved My Days' score is still pretty high. Reason being, if using this month's example, I enjoyed my days a lot during a trip to Norway, even though I did not follow a Blueprint. I figure, what matters the most, in the end, is not some graph to tell me if I am living an Ideal Day lifestyle, but key is, really - if I'm actually loving my days while walking along this journey! So this was an eye opening realization.   

MASTER NUMBER: since beginning of Can I Fail journey my Master Number seems to be decreasing. It could be for various reasons, and I'm yet to find out what exactly is pulling me Down, instead of Up. By the way it looks the biggest obstacles I was facing, so far, were: financial challenges, environment and family issues. Haven't managed to overcome the financial issues yet, but some changes occurred in environment & relationships categories.To note, I celebrated April 7% more & my Emotional state went up by 4% from March, so this sure is a positive sign. Let's see what's next!

BUCKET LIST & GOALS: is a bit of a drag to this campaign. I managed to hit 60% of my monthly goals and only 3% increase to Bucket List 2017 Goals. It's May already and I'm miles away from my overall 80% targets. I know I'm not being lazy here, so it could be that I simply had set unrealistic goals and expectations to begin with. On another hand, I currently have 38% Bucket List activities in progress, once those done there should be one big jump in performance records. In any case, we have another 7 months to go till year's end, will be looking to do whatever it takes to move things forward faster to reach my targets!

Top 3 best performing categories this month (in terms of goals achieved & Success Rates) were Relationships, Time and Physical. While 3 biggest laggers were Wealth, Mission and Give & Spiritual. See each category for details (below)

INCOME, OUTGOINGS & TARGETS: this category in actual Blueprint was also greatly improved. Gives so much clearer picture! Details with selected few charts are shared in a section down this page. 

NEXT MONTH GOALS: while number '28 goals a month' could appear to be high, somehow I have a feeling that this time around I should be able to manage and hit at least 70% if not 80%+ of them in May. Simply there is so much more clarity now to what needs to be done, and how! Happy with the way month is starting, so far. 

MONTH IN 10 PICTURES: again, to make it Visual as much as possible I include pictures to most memorable moments. I decided to keep a number down to 10, no more, so that it really makes me think - what was the most important to have happened over last 4 weeks? Need to learn to capture life in more color, though... a new skill to develop!

Thank you everyone who's here, to help keep wheels spinning.
Most Memorable Part(s) 3 Biggest Lessons Learned
By far, the  most exciting was Norway trip & visiting my cousin over there
---
Working on my Lifebook in the eve, makes up for whole day... regardless how the day went
---
On the other hand, sleeping on a mattress for a whole month at sister's daughter room was a down part of April. Makes feel 'low'. But I'm grateful for... my sister & her family  Challenging financial & no income situation can really drag my life down. Emotionally

I really do need to start living my life, with color. I feel missing out on life, if just working & working...

Inspired Living by 7 Virtues

The Ideal Day Blueprint, which was designed around 7 Timeless Virtues of Enlightened Living, as guided in a book 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari', by Robin Sharma.

Crafted for an extraordinary day, full packed with ingredients to lead into fulfilling lifestyle.

Totalling together, the 7 Virtues of Enlightening Living numbers tells me how close or far I'm to be experiencing the the Ideal Day Lifestyle.

The aim is to hit 80%+ to Ideal Day Lifestyle Project totals (currently stands at 74%).

Wheel of Life (Reality Checks)

One of the things I had to do, when started working on taking a turn in life, was to perform my Reality Checks. And be very honest with myself. Wasn't easy.

Wheel of Life idea was borrowed from Tony Robbins, as learned during his Unleash the Power event, London 2015. A powerful experience. 

Having thought thoroughly, through ingredients needed to include into each category, and having added few more guides, I was able to understand my current reality way clearer than ever before. 

Results in the image tell a story: 1. Blue circle is first ever reality checks, performed in Oct 2016; 2. Yellow circle is the most recent (reality checks are performed every 3 months)

Emotions & Meaning, April
Last month change: +4%

Emotions & Meaning

Various emotional checks and tests are undertaken on monthly basis. These include self-fulfillment, peace, happiness, human connection, self-esteem, feeling appreciated, gratitude, forgiveness and several more. 

Throughout experience of this journey I found that relying on just one type of test (happiness, for example), provided by one type of source (psychology website, etc.) is not always a reliable report to follow. I learned that a combination of such tests, coming from few different sources is a better option. 

Takes only 30 mins a month to complete, but it adds so much more clarity to your daily life. Tells a story how your emotional state affects others areas, too. Well worth to keep a close eye on!

Income, Outgoings & Targets

This has been the toughest category out of them all, during this journey.

I currently rely on trading and investment strategies as my main income source, but it wasn't going well. This month Profit/Loss: -£40. After encountering huge losses in March, I'm now 122% away from my Year 2017 income targets (set as £5,000)

Big drawdown (outgoings) this month occurred due to some money temporarily moved out from accounts. Will be returned next month.

The charts are here to share the complete story. So far.

Too, as one of other few activities, here I also note how the financial situation does affect Ideal Day Lifestyle & the Emotional Life as well. These doesn't help to generate income, but it sure is a powerful tool to have in place. I believe, on any journey.
