Every Wednesday, I publish one essay & 10 interesting things that will help you become healthy, wealthy and wise 👇
Essay of the week
This week I decided to build a cohort-based community where we all come together and build small habits like writing, reading, meditating, running, etc.
The idea is very simple.
Give a group of interesting people the same goal, give them a challenge, make them support each other and develop habits while making friends from around the world. Also, win NFTs to complete the challenges.
One5: One habit, 15 minutes for 15 days.
When the pandemic hit in march 2020, I was slacking on lots of things. I eventually realised later that I have to start small.
Do one thing for 15mins for 15days. same time, every day. That’s all.
Write for 15mins every day. Run for
Then I did the same for 30 days. then I took up more interesting challenges like 30 days of discipline (Though I badly failed in it) I also learned that I would have crushed it if I had a community or a group of people doing it with me.
This club is 2 years in the making and I’ve done lots of experiments over the years, and this summer I want to help 1000 people build small habits.
I created a gumroad page quickly and shared more FAQs.
Habits you can develop
Things I will provide after you pay?
How did I come up with this idea (You’d love this story)
The whole process & the deadline to join the first cohort.
I was watching Shawshank Redemption this week and this quote stuck with me 👇
I realised sometimes these cages are in our minds. Cheap dopamine, extreme procrastination, constant distractions, etc are stopping us from reaching our full potential.
But I honestly believe the readers of my newsletters are way above that. They cannot be caged and even if they are, they aren’t meant to be caged. Let me help you. The world is always looking for ways to get your attention but with the help of a community, we will be able to build the right and necessary habits.
Sometimes we talk about how a small change in the past could absolutely change the present, but we rarely believe that a small change in the present could absolutely change the future.
Start making the small changes today. Start building the right habits now and change your future. Join the first cohort of One5 Club and become a part of the history 🚀
I’m also giving out 50% scholarships for the first cohort to anyone who needs it. You have to join before 26th April 2022 to be eligible.
