How To Achieve Your 10-Year Plan In The Next 6 Months

While lots of the article reads kind of accurate – some is just false.
“Would it be hard to give up a bad habit if you only had 6 months left to live? Probably not.”

As someone who went vegan after being sent home “terminal cancer” and “palliative care only” having been told I could be “dead in 6 weeks” and had a 2% chance of living 2 years; I did make many significant changes. It was hard – far harder than training myself to hold my breath for 7 minutes for example.

I am over 7 years since my last tumour, but my experience has been that most people would rather die than make the sorts of changes I did with the consistency that I did (I have watched many do that).

So my experience absolutely contradicts the “Probably not” assertion above.

My experience is that I am in a very small fraction of people (less than 5%, possibly less than 1%) who actually manage to make significant, consistent changes; and maintain them across multiple years without exception. And my experience is that making those changes with that level of consistency was the hardest thing I have ever done, and I am no stranger to challenges.

I seem to be in a very tiny fraction of humanity who will actually devote significant amounts of time and energy to optimising the probabilities of survival and freedom for every person; consistently.

Very interested in the observations of others on this subject!
