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.”
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 […]
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?
How do we celebrate the little things in life? What about all those small wins we have each day that we should be proud? I’ve often heard that you should celebrate the little things in life. But I always had trouble implementing the act of celebrating into my life.
Every now and then I find myself procrastinating on taking even small steps towards my goal. Maybe it’s the same for you?
Sometimes it’s because the goal seems like an insurmountable obstacle. It just doesn’t feel like I’m making any progress if I take one or two small steps. So why bother, right? Other times there’s too many steps available. I don’t know where to start. And then there’s the dread of “what happens if I don’t like the goal when I get there?”.
I often find myself procrastinating on tasks, and I’ve always wondered why people procrastinate. Is there a set of common causes out there? Which ones are they? What tactics can you use to combat procrastinating?
Currently I’m at a place where I want to improve myself, but I lack the energy to do so. I honestly find it really hard to get up early in the morning, work and exercise. At the same time I really want to change right now, but at the same time I’d rather change tomorrow. From experience this state doesn’t last forever, but I don’t want to wait for my motivation to come as I really want to change myself right now. This is also the reason I’m writing a blog about it, because I know that writing and planning to get better usually increases my motivation.
Last week concluded my first three month project—my new work routine where I work no more than three month in a row then have 1 month break. Albeit its name ‘three month project’ this project was only 6 weeks long; still, I want to assess what worked and what didn’t work. In essence this post is a review of the three month project work routine.
As the semester grows closer to its end I feel like I lack structure on how my days should be structured. In the previous article I figured out and decided what I wanted to do each day, but not how the days should be structured.
Do you have one habit or belief that greatly limits your actions? My habit is rising early from bed, or rather not rising early from bed. Some days and weeks everything goes well, others days I can sleep until 11am on workdays and even longer on weekends. I’ve been working on solutions for 6 years now and I’m starting to doubt there is a permanent solution to this problem; whenever I come up with one strategy the mind comes up with a counter-strategy, stupid mind (or intelligent). Sometimes I’ve thrown in the towel, but after a week or two I get tired of not […]
