It has been over a year and a half since I first learned how to do the Rubik’s Cube. Upon completion I felt amazing. It was tantamount to climbing a mountain. To this day I am still very proud of my accomplishment. But now, it is time to get better, and by better I mean faster.
To this date I have solved my cube in 1.01 minutes, twice. Heartbreak. So close, yet so far. I know I can do better though. There are a few algorithms that I am using as a crutch and are slower than learning some new ones, so it is time to learn again. Soon I will beat my time, and ideally I will do this today. We will see how good I can get my time by the end of this year, but I have plans to get it to at least under 45 seconds. And then when that happens, I will have to get better.
Life is always about improvement, and working towards some goal. To me, that is precisely what brings happiness. Finding a task, a project, something to work towards, something to improve on, and something to complete. Then when that happens, on to the next task.
Well, the blog post for today is done, time to cube now!
