    I really like your journey and how it's organized, I'll take the inspiration and start doing as you do (keeping track on calendar). Wish you good luck!!
    Now some questions :)
    Which bot do you use for Instagram for following/unfollowing? How many posts do you post per day on a single account?
    Which sites do you use for freelancing?

    I use the free bot Instapy. One post per day on all 3 accounts. I also post the same thing as a story in the comedy account. It didn't have much of an impact when I did the same with the nature and food accounts, so I've stopped stories in those two.

    As for Websites, Guru was my favorite, but now with regular work, I don't use it as much.

    Green Streak up to #16

    Today went exactly as per plan as well. I reached my ideal target of $30 through Freelancing and posted the scheduled content on Instagram. This earns me another Green Day and pushes the streak up to 16. I feel I've gotten into a good routine and things seem to be settling into place. This gives me some much-needed confidence and reassurance that I am indeed doing the right thing. All I have to do is stick to this plan and stay disciplined.

    Instagram: I posted the content and ran the bot with the usual settings. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: I stuck to the plan of using a countdown timer and working without any sort of distractions till the timer goes to 0. I did this twice and by the time there were about 5 minutes remaining during the second countdown, I'd already achieved my ideal target of $30 for today. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And that brings us to my calendar which ends bright green with the month coming to a close. A new month, fresh with challenges and possibilities awaits me tomorrow :)

    [​IMG]

    I shall now head to bed peacefully and continue listening to the audiobook I have, while I drift off to sleep :D

    Oh, and by the way, you guys should definitely try this concept called broken sleep. The concept is that you sleep for about 4 hours and then wake up, maybe browse the phone or something for about half an hour and then go back to sleep. This second sleep will be much much more relaxing and you will be rested much better than if you just slept continuously for 6-7 hours. I've been following it for several days now and it is wonderful. The second sleep is so amazing. Try it out and you'll never want to stop doing it. Until tomorrow then guys!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #19

    Today being a Saturday, my target was only to achieve my minimum target for the day $10. However, I went on and worked a bit more and earned $15 today. That gives me another Green Day and thus, take the streak up to 19.

    Instagram: I posted the scheduled content as per the plan and ran the bot, same as usual. My Nature account hit 3k followers today :) Super happy about that milestone. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: Like I said, I reached my minimum and target and then did a bit more work today to earn $15 today. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, here's my faithful calendar with another Green Day marked.

    [​IMG]

    Now, I can enjoy an excellent Sunday tomorrow. Just need to schedule Instagram posts and that's that. Will probably go and watch a nice movie and treat myself I guess :D So long guys. Until tomorrow then!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #20

    Today being a Sunday, the only thing on my to-do list was to post the scheduled Instagram Content, run the bot, and schedule the next 7 days' worth of content for all 3 of my Instagram accounts. I did all of it and earned my Green Day which takes the streak up to 20.

    Instagram: Here's the progress graph.

    Green Streak up to #21

    Today was a textbook Monday with all the laziness of the weekend spilling over. I did wake up late but managed to rush and got back to my routine by mid-day. After that, it was a breeze and I achieved my ideal target of $30 from Freelancing. I also posted the scheduled content on Instagram and that earned me another Green Day, thus taking the streak up to 21.

    Instagram: I posted the scheduled content and ran the bot as usual. Here's the progress graph.

    Freelancing: I achieved my ideal target of $30 today. Check out my progress graph below.

    So now, I can go off, peacefully listen to an audiobook and drift off to sleep :D Until tomorrow then guys!

    Green Streak up to #22

    Today was the hardest day so far. I was down with a high fever all day and it was a real struggle to sit in front of the computer and work. I rested well throughout the day and in the evening, when I felt a little better, I managed to achieve my minimum target of $10 through Freelancing. I also posted the scheduled Instagram content from my phone to get a hard-earned Green Day and take the streak up to 22.

    Instagram: In addition to posting the scheduled content from my mobile, I also asked my brother to start up the bot and so Instagram went smoothly today. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: The total earnings for today was $12 which is way below my ideal target of $30. However, I'll take anything above $10 and considering my condition today, I'm pretty happy that I managed to squeeze in some work today :) Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, here's the hard-earned Green Day marked on my calendar.

    [​IMG]

    Super proud of myself. Big thanks to all those encouraging me here on BHW too. That gave me the motivation to put in the required work and earn my Green Day today :D

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #23

    Today, the fever continued and so I remained in bed throughout the day. In the evening, I managed to work a bit and earned $12 for today, thus earning myself a Green Day and taking the streak up to 23.

    Instagram: I posted the scheduled content and ran the bot with the usual settings. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: I managed to force myself to work for a while and earned $12, which is above my minimum target of $10 for a weekday. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, here's my faithful calendar with the new Green Day marked.

    [​IMG]

    Now, I head back to bed and hope that the fever subsides tomorrow. Until then, so long guys!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #24

    Today I felt slightly better but the effects of the fever still lingered on. I managed to work for a while and earned $18 through Freelancing. Instagram went smooth as usual and thus, I earned another Green Day, taking the streak up to 24.

    Instagram: I posted the scheduled content and ran the bot as usual. I'm also doing a lot of unfollowing these days, such that the net effect each day is negative. This is to bring down my following/followers ratio, which I suspect has an important place in Instagram's new algorithm. Let's see what impact it has on the engagement which has fallen sharply over the last month. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: I managed to earn $18 today. This is less than the idea $30 I would've loved to make but considering my fragile state, I'm happy with it. Here's my progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, here's my faithful calendar with the new Green Day marked.

    [​IMG]

    Now, it's back to rest and recovery. Until tomorrow then guys!

    Cheers!

    I’m probably going to try it too! It seems like a dope strategy to push the brain to a different level! Do you have any other positive outcomes?

    Like I mentioned in the first post, I initially tried this Green Streak thing to get myself fit by working out every day. That's still going on too; just crossed 250 days yesterday.

    More than anything, it's the fear of having to admit failure on a public forum that terrifies me and gets me working :D

    Green Streak up to #25

    Today, I spent most of the day at the Hospital, checking if my fever was Viral or something worse. Post that, I returned and managed to work just a bit and hit my minimum target for a weekday by making $12 from Freelancing. I posted the scheduled content on Instagram and thus earned myself another Green Day, taking the streak up to 25.

    Instagram: I've been noticing that my Follow-back percentage has been steadily dropping over the last two months and in 2 of my 3 accounts it is now less than 10%. So I've decided to unfollow continuously on all 3 accounts for a while and improve my Following-Followers ratio. Hopefully, this will improve the follow-back percentage again. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: Still feverish and having spent most of the day at the hospital, I'm actually proud of having made $12 today but disappointed at the same time about a poor week. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And finally here's my calendar with the new Green Day marked.

    [​IMG]

    More rest now. Fingers crossed for a quick recovery and a return to full efficiency :) Until tomorrow then guys!

    Cheers!

    Green Streak up to #26

    Today, the test results from the hospital came and whoppe, I don't have any viral infection! I felt almost completely fine immediately and so, in spite of it being a Saturday, worked a lot and managed to earn $24 from Freelancing. Instagram was also smooth and thus I earned another Green Day, thus taking the streak up to 26.

    Instagram: I posted the scheduled content and ran the bot with the settings changed to Unfollow only. I plan to continue with this setting until my following-followers ratio improves. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    Freelancing: I managed to earn $24 today. That's more than my Saturday target of $15, but I wanted to make up for all the days I've not hit my ideal target this week. Here's the progress graph.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, here's my calendar with the new Green Day marked.

    [​IMG]

    Now, back to rest and more sleep. That should drive the fever out and make me strong again :)

    Cheers!
