Have you ever found yourself paralyzed by fear, unable to take action? And you’d rather do anything but the thing you fear? Is there any way you can use this energy to take action on something else you’ve procrastinated?
An extensive summary of the journey on my raw vegan trial. What did I learn? What was easiest/hardest? How much did it cost? Weight gain or loss?
When I started out as an entrepreneur, I was easily distracted by all the notifications around me. I would jump from task to task every 10 minutes, trying to multitask to the best of my abilities. Answering emails, messages, and calls.
Little did I know that this approach is highly inefficient. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon the WorkAwesome blog, the book Eat that Frog by Brian Tracy, and most importantly the Pomodoro Technique.
The problem I have with learning is that skip parts that I find difficult instead of tackling them. But what’s even more common, is that I want to progress in the perfect order, even if I’m qualified to jump over the “beginner tutorial.” When I want to learn something new or when I practice a piano piece I often want to do that as efficiently as possible, but I also want to learn it “the right way.”
Three days ago, on the 1st of May, I started my 80/10/10 raw vegan 30-day trial, which is one of my new year resolutions for this year. I used to be very skeptical about this whole raw business; why would your health get better when you eat raw? How come I’m less of a skeptic now? A few of my friends have tried eating raw, and every single one of them has reported health improvements. I’m always trying to improve my health, and the benefits intrigued me. So I’m excited to try this diet and see how my health changes […]
The first quarter of the year has ended; it’s time to review and reflect how I’m doing with my 27 resolutions for the year.
To be honest, I’m not sure how I’m doing. I know some resolutions are lagging behind, while others are on track. But I’m looking forward to writing this journal-like article as I most likely discover a few new things about myself. And journaling is a great way for me to get a snapshot of how things are going, and what I’m struggling with now.
Have you ever sold and promoted the hell out of a movie, a book, or product? You don’t seem to be able to stop telling everyone how great it is. About a week ago I had an epiphany. I was ticking off one of the week’s action items: To journal what I’m great at doing. One of the things I wrote down was that I’m great at selling products I love. I’ve convinced a few people to buy apps that I use because I love and believe in them so much. I can easily convince people why they should listen or read […]
A few of my readers have asked me how I eat growth content. So I figured I could write a short article on how I eat growth content for breakfast. 🙂 On average I eat a bit more than 2 hours of growth content every day. But I only spend 1 hour eating content; it’s all about being efficient 😉 I link to all podcasts, blogs, and apps again at the bottom of the article 🙂 Be effective I follow a lot of content, but I seldom have time to read through and listen to everything. That’s not entirely accurate. I do have time, but […]
“I’m ugly. I’m boring. I’m not sexy.” Those used to be the lies I told myself in the past. Especially the thought that I was ugly and not sexy. I believed these thoughts so much that it took a great deal of time to change my belief. I honestly thought that I would be ugly and not sexy for my entire life.
Have you tried many different systems to organize your life, but none of them seem to stick? This used to be a problem for me. I tried lots of systems, but I never stuck with them longer than at most a month. So how come it’s so hard to stay with a system for a longer time?
