    1. The best version of me lives in Athens for a moment, but usually he's with me all the time.

    2. It's early afternoon, he smokes and listens to "Space Oddity" of David Bowie. I really can't think of better version of me then this (and it happened about 6 months ago, it was a really mystical afternoon).

    3. I'm nomadic, I can feel nice everywhere.

    4. I don't need anyone when I'm the best version of myself.

    5. The question is dismissed.

    6. The usual things I do - study, smoke, drink coffee and enjoy music.

    7. Some t-shirts with symbolic stuff, I kinda express what I feel with my t-shirts.

    8. Music, smoking, coffee

    9. None! I feel calm and full of joy

    10. Huge difference - The best version of me doesn't care about anything, my other versions are always under pressure,in a hurry or stressed one way or another

    11. Drink coffee, smoke and listen to music.

    Yup! Kind egoistic version but it was the best

    The journey to become a better me is such an important part of my inner psyche that I kind of hope there is no 'best' me. I hope I keep questing after those improvements forever.

    I really like the idea of this!

    1. Where is the best version of you living?
    It doesn't matter as long as there is WiFi, mountains and a climbing center.

    2. What kind of work does the best version of you do?
    He programs for a huge games company... probably being the lead programmer of the company.

    3. Is your home an aspect of your life or are you nomadic - on an adventure?
    He is an adventurer, he barely has anything at home as all his money goes to backpacking around the work in his time off work. He go on weekends to nearby places and different countries when he can.

    4. Who are the important people in your life, as the best version of you?
    His family, his friends, his coworkers.

    5. Why are these people important?
    You are a reflection of the people you spend your time with. I will choose my friends well so he can enjoy good company. They will be good people that anyone would enjoy spending time with.

    6. As the best version of you, how would you spend your time differently than you do now?
    He spends SO much less time gaming, watching videos, in bed, masturbating, wasting time.
    He spends almost all of his time working on himself, improving every skill.

    7. How do you dress on a regular basis as the best version of you?
    Casually, jeans and a tshirt. Shorts and a shirt etc.

    8. What activities do you do for enjoyment as the best version of you?
    Climbing, running, walking, reading, socialising, exploring, travelling, meeting new people, playing the guitar.

    9. What challenges do you face as the best version of you?
    Money only. Life and all tha comes with it isn't a challenge if you love it.

    10. How are you physically and mentally different as the best version of you?
    I am stronger and more in-tune with who I am. I am fit so people can see I work out but not excessively - I don't want to be a bubble.

    11. What can you do tomorrow, to get closer to being the best version of you?
    Stop wasting my time on pointless things. Not pmo. Exercise. Meditate. Wake up early. Do things that will improve me, not keep me where I am.

    1. Where is the best version of you living?

    Someplace where there is water. There are some evenings that I walk to the end of the breakwater in my town. The salt air and wind helps calm me down. I think I would like to live outside the city somewhere.

    2. What kind of work does the best version of you do?

    I have spent two years spinning my wheels trying to figure this out and haven't yet. It has to pay well enough for me to pay the bills, own my own place, enjoy my hobbies, and have some left over for savings. I don't want my job to occupy my entire life, and it doesn't involve working at night or shift work.

    3. Is your home an aspect of your life or are you nomadic - on an adventure?

    I like adventure, but having a home base to come back to is important.

    4. Who are the important people in your life, as the best version of you?

    My SAA sponsor, a select few SAA members, my uncle, and my grandmother.

    5. Why are these people important?

    They are the few people that I trust and they aren't trying to micromanage my entire existence.

    6. As the best version of you, how would you spend your time differently than you do now?

    I would likely spend more of my time out of the house.

    7. How do you dress on a regular basis as the best version of you?

    If I am outside working, I'll stick with t-shirt and jeans as I always have.

    For going out in the evening, I already got some nice button-up shirts for that purpose. Probably have a couple of pairs of nicer pants for this as well.

    For formal stuff, I would probably get a couple of nicer matching suits but nothing too extravagant.

    8. What activities do you do for enjoyment as the best version of you?

    Mostly the same hobbies that I enjoy now. Cooking, reading, creative writing, scuba diving, classic cars, spirited driving, road trips, outdoors, urban exploring, travelling, wet shaving, etc.

    9. What challenges do you face as the best version of you?

    Not sure how to answer this question. If I have become the best version of myself, shouldn't I have overcome the worst of the challenges already?

    10. How are you physically and mentally different as the best version of you?

    Physically - I am more or less where I want to be physically. Maybe have a bit more muscle though.

    Mentally - I want to be in a place where I am accepting of myself, confident, in a positive mental state, and not dependent on any addictions to be happy (even if its only temporary happiness). I would like to be a little more upbeat than I usually am. I want to be assertive and not allow dickheads to walk over me. I would like to be less closed-off and be a little more outgoing. But I don't want to overhaul my entire personality...if that makes any sense.

    11. What can you do tomorrow, to get closer to being the best version of you?

    Staying committed to NoFap obviously, and not procrastinating. It is so easy for me to sit here and type that I will not procrastinate though. Who I am I kidding? It is hard for me to motivate myself when I feel so far gone.
