– Live a fasted life. Eat once a day – and twice on special occasions.
– Delete certain apps – or abstain from social media altogether.
– No secular movies or music.
– No attending Happy Hour with your colleagues.
– Certainly no alcohol. Etc…

However, when you also have some measure of success or knowledge, it can be extremely difficult to ‘stoop’ to learn from another.
