Note to myself on managing your physical environment There seems to be a direct relationship between your physical environment and your mental states. By physcial environment, I am referring to your apartment, your car or your office desk. It seems that one of the most basic things that you can do, when looking for mental […]

Progress is not Linear

Note to myself on progress Progress is like the finanicial markets. Most gains are made in a handful of days out of the whole year. The problem is, you do not know which once. You have to keep holding on to those assets to benefit from price appreciation in the long run.  The same is […]

Influence what influences you

Note to myself on managing the influencers in your life An old saying goes like this: Tell me who your friends are and I will tell who you are. It basically means that your closest circle of people define your frame of mind and your views on life. In 2020 this is also true with […]

It does not have to be complete nor objective

Note to myself on perfectionism in content creation There are a few subcategories of perfectionism that can be quite dangerious or at least very counterproductive and misleading for novice content creators. One of these misconceptions is the idea that a piece of content in any format including text, video or regular speech, have to be […]

Curating vs creating content

Note to myself on the value of organizing and sharing content vs creating it The amount of content that is currently being produced daily is exceeding the amount of content any individual could possibly ever consume. That means that most of us will live our lives without ever even scratching the surface of the available […]

The Power of the Smile

Note to myself on Smiling I do not know what it is, but I am not much of a smiler. I think it could be the Eastern European influence or some sort of subconscious drive to be overly serious. Maybe it is something more basic like facial muscle tension. Who knows. Fact is, when I […]

Things you should stop doing vs what you should do

Note to myself on the benefits of inverting questions during self-talk Thinking out-of-the-box, reverse engineering and other alternative ways to think about things always fascinated me. Sometimes you can develop a totally different view of a situation by inverting they questions you ask. One interesting question to invert is: What should you NOT do in […]

The idea of frequencies

Note to myself: The other day I came across this really interesting Russian author. One of his key ideas is that he classifies people as being participants of 12 levels of parallel frequencies. Each level is then subdivided in 12 sublevels. What is interesting is that he believes that if a person is on for […]

Meditation and how I got started

Note to myself: I was going through a lot of uncertainty throughout the last decade. Around 2014 I had finally reached a low point where I decided to see  if meditation could be something I could use to regain some positive momentum and to get out of a never ending stagnation phase. Having found an […]

There is something about being public

Note to myself: There are more and more people that I know, that are sharing their own content online. Some have YouTube channels, others are writing a blog. The majority use social media to communicate publically about things they care about. What is going on? What do we get out of this. Why does it […]

Why this website exists

I think the best way to start a blog is by writing a post. So let’s do that. I have an innate desire to publish and to share my ideas. However, for the most part of my life, I was not able to break that barrier, even in an age of the internet, where every […]
