9 Ways To Be Fucking Awesome TODAY

Hello fellow Cheetahs, today’s post is totally badass. The reason why it’s badass is because it’s a list of ways to be FUCKING AWESOME TODAY, stuff you can do before you go to bed. Why fucking awesome? Because being awesome kicks ass and being not-awesome is totally lame.

Whatever you’re doing, wherever you are, make it your goal to be FUCKING AWESOME today. When you’re done with that, wake up and do it again tomorrow until forever.

Before I get to my list, I’ve decided to make March the Month of Inspiration here at H&L. That might sound weird coming from a blog about dating/relationships/sex, but I think it’s a much needed thing. Most blogs in this niche talk about the shitty side of dating and there’s little to get pumped up about. Elsewhere, we see inspirational writing on topics like creativity, ditching your job, making money on the Internet, etc. So, I wanted to tackle the challenge of making H&L a font of inspiration for a least a month.

On to my kickass list…

1. Have a real, honest-to-God conversation with someone. I don’t mean a work conversation, or talking about your day, or a Facebook chat, or even a phone call. I mean a real, no bullshit, face-to-face conversation about cool stuff that requires discussion to work through. The kind you have on long road trips or in those early gushy dating stages with a hot chick. Remember those? I’ll be honest with you, I think this is the hardest item on the list. I’m okay with a phone convo if it’s bundled with #5 below…

2. Donate $20 to a worthy cause. Self explanatory. Don’t be a dick and shy away from giving. I donated twenty bones to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation because a friend of mine’s kid had cancer (I didn’t shave my head). If you listen to NPR, and I know a lot of you reader-of-blogs types do, they’d be happy to take your money.

3. Read 2 chapters in a good book. Show of hands, how many people have read an actual book this year? I haven’t, and I consider myself an avid reader. That sucks. Absorbing information from the Internet is threatening to take over our minds and that includes the parts I reserve for books. That also sucks. I’m a big fan of going to the bookstore and killing two chapters in a new book.

4. Totally crush your workout. Don’t slog. Crush it. Beast mode.

5. Connect with an old friend. You know how we rarely talk to long distance friends any more and allow ourselves to substitute Facebook for a relationship? Fuck that. Call an old friend, someone you haven’t talked to in awhile, and catch up. If a phone call is impossible, write a long email with some seriously good content.

7. Identity something that inspires you. Reconnoiter your various channels and see if you can find something that truly inspires you, and preferably moves you towards a positive change. Perhaps it’s this post!? Art, a good idea, a killer blog, something someone said, whatever. Write that shit down and live it. I found a couple of inspirational blogs that are doing it for me: High Existence and Think Traffic.

8. Come up with an Idea. Could be related to #7 above. I came up with an idea for a series of blog posts for my work blog that I think will go over awesomely with our clients and prospects. I’m starting in on it tomorrow. Find an idea, write that shit down, execute like KGB.

9. Have sex like a total beast. What fucking awesome day would be complete without it?

This post was inspired from Corbett Barr’s The Quest to Be F*cking Awesome and Julien Smith’s The Short and Sweet Guide to Being Fucking Awesome. I hope those fine writers don’t mind me appropriating their idea for this post. I got super pumped up after reading their stuff.

Obviously, this is not a comprehensive list. What else can you do to be fucking awesome TODAY? Be a rockstar and leave your ideas in comments.

    Believe it or not, I’ve done all of these things in the last week, save the donating $20 thing, fuck charity :).

    After reading this post I have can say I have done all these :-). Though honestly it was more like over the last month unlike Hammer above, for me to get them all completed.

    That makes me AWESOME then :-)

    It’s been one of those scary reads when your like “Shit I only just did that”. For example 3 days ago I contacted a friend who I haven’t spoken to for ages cos’ he moved to New Zealand.

    Also for the first time ever I raised money for charity by getting people to sponsor me (i sponsored myself as well) to shave my hair and beard. I have given money to charity in the past but this is by far the coolest thing I have done. Plus my girlfriend is much happier cos’ she doesn’t get a rash from my beard any more. Women don’t like beards trust me ;-).

    Great post

    Preston, props for reading and commenting. You, sir, are indeed fucking awesome! Some of the items on the list are so simple, but get pushed aside because of our dependence on technology and social media. It’s good to reconnect in a human way. Also, I like that you sponsored yourself for a good cause, good on ya.

    Glad you agree :-)

    Just so people know, the good cause was ‘Alzheimers’. One that is close to my heart.

    Props for writing the article. You have succeeded in giving me even more inspiration to continue in my current vain of form.

    Hey Preston, are you a contributor to the Social Masters blog? Saw the link to it, wanted to check.

    Hey Lance I help David run the blog in general.

    This includes writing articles, monitoring comments, adding new blogs to our ‘best pua blogs on the planet list’, etc.

    David helped me out a hell of a lot when I was really down about life a few years ago. He has helped me get to where I am now. So it was a natural progression to help him run the blog when he finally decide to start writing one. It’s great to help others like David helped me.

    Side note: Just so you know, I double checked to make sure your blog was on our ‘Best pua blogs on the planet’ list and I am glad to say it was :-)
