[5:30] Finding "Me Time"
Matt and Adam are both morning people. They discovered that the best time to exercise is in the early morning. It can be challenging to find time for yourself, but you may end up feeling lost or burned out if you don't.
[9:18] The Power of Journaling
Writing about your day is cathartic. Whether positive or negative, you can release your thoughts and emotions in a journal. Your entries can also serve as messages from your past self to your future self about lessons learned.
[11:11] Life Audit with Pictures and Reading
Looking back at old pictures allows you to reflect on what you've learned since they were taken. Reading past journal entries can help you see what has changed, what you can apply in the present, and what you can teach others.
[16:45] The Importance of Tracking
Adam learned the value of tracking from his father, an Olympic swim coach. You're telling a story when you're tracking things. Tracking is an excellent tool for self-improvement because it can show you where you've improved and fallen short.
