This is my third attempt at a 90-day reboot. I relapsed after 18 days, and 36 days. Using StarCraft-2 to overcome PMO, and get better at life in 90-days. Every relapse is different and requires different strategies. That's exactly what my new reboot is all about. Strategy. I'm going to give up PMO for 90 days and use StarCraft-2 as a variable in determining my progress. I'm not just doing this to have fun and play a game to relax or escape my troubles. I'm going to attempt to learn the game and improve my skill level over it, and develop a better understanding of how it's played. To develop habits that I can transfer over to other areas of my life and help me become a better person. Think of it like someone getting better at chess, or pool, and how much time and effort they really have to put in to it to be good. Sure there are naturally talented players, but as an average Joe, you have to do the work. There's a reason why it's called Star"Craft" because it is just that. It's a craft and a skill game. A real time strategy. Arguably the best RTS ever made. Now I know I can't just lock myself in my room and play StarCraft-2, nor would I want to. So I will have to go outside, weather permitted, (I say that because it's basically flooding outside right now, and I don't drive.) and do something social/non-introverted. Such as going to a coffee shop to read, or riding my bike, gym etc. at least once a week. Going to work doesn't count, although I get to be somewhat social there. There are several ranks in the ladder system. Right now I am "Gold" which is about the third tier. It goes: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Masters. My goal is to reach the Masters league in 90 days. Now how does one go from third level "Gold", to sixth level "Masters", in 90-days? I have no fucking idea. I know that porn isn't going to help me get there. StarCraft will be a 90-day metaphor for life. I've been playing this game, for fun, and somewhat as a hobby for over 10+ years. I played the original and now the second one. I'm not that great of a player. I do a lot of random strategies and I don't take it too seriously. That's about to change. I'm going to use this as a metaphor for life. If I can succeed in StarCraft, I can succeed at anything I put the time in to. I know that for a fact. StarCraft is a fucking hard game. At least, I perceive it to be. To get good at it, you have to put in the time and really understand what's going on. Maybe if I learn a few new things it won't be hard anymore, who knows? I'm going to give it 100% for the next 90 days and see how far I can get. I do have 30+ hour a week job that will be taking up some of my time but I plan on spending at least 6+ hours learning and playing this beautiful game, everyday. To put things in to a little perspective I actually spent $2,000 on a brand new computer and desk to play StarCraft-2. I haven't been playing it much, maybe once or twice a month. So I'm really bad at this game right now. All of my experience means jack shit. I have no idea what the current meta-game is, or what the hell I'm doing. This is going to be a shit show for sure. What I'll be doing to get better at StarCraft 2: 1) I'm going to practice one new build order every morning from 5:30am to 6:30am per week. 2) I'm going to review replays of games I've played from 6:30am to 7:00am. 3) When I have a window of time (after work, or before work) I'm going to practice that build order in real time against opponents in ranked games, over and over, for four hours straight. 4) I'm going to spend two hours studying/posting about strategy on a StarCraft-2 forum. 5) I'm going to spend at least one hour watching strategy videos on YouTube. 6) I'm to spend 30 minutes after I'm done doing all this to meditate, hopefully about StarCraft. Now only one question remains... Which race do I play?
