You have to be willing to fail

As of writing this (March 16th, 2022), I am 1/5th of the way through this apprenticeship with my teacher. I am not a good athlete, but my teacher expects me to be doing handstands & exeorcising every day. I’ve been slowly working my way up in fitness level, trampolining for an hour every day, doing pushups, and the like. And along the way, I have failed to create a habit of doing harder exercises, like handstands.

Sometimes, I set targets but then fail. I’ve set goals & expectations that are unrealistic. At the beginning of the year, I set the goal to record 1500 talking head videos. 3 1/2 months later,  I’ve recorded ~70, and have published 20 or so. Realistically I can only record a half-dozen or so in batches on occasion. I can record a 1-3 minute video daily as a warmup exercise. I used to publish these warmups, but have kept them private since my Instagram got banned. And the material I taught changed from public speaking, media training & crypto. To mindfulness & meditation, which I am much more cautious about oversharing as of now.
