Perfection is a Distraction

When I started with this project here I started with the WordPress default theme. It was easy and straightforward. I knew from the beginning that I am not going to stick with it forever and that I will spend some time on making the block more matching my liking. Looking for a theme and researching the possibilities until I found something matching…

Show Up Every Day

I am sitting on flight to Amsterdam, with a stopover in Vienna, relaxed and ready to write. Now that I got all of that time consuming stuff behind me, I am ready for new endeavors in my life.

Make it as easy as possible to start

I am sitting again at the tram station after a long day. And again I noticed if something is easy to reach and easy to get I am more likely to do it. Yes, it refers to writing in my case. On Saturday the postman brought me a bag for my iPad. I don’t want to carry around the huge backpack all…

What I have learned through 31 Days of Writing

How to end the 31 days of writing challenge better than with a lessons-learned? On Friday I finished the challenge with myself. Yes, it was a great feeling.

Why I am Writing

So here are my reasons why I am writing this blog, why I am writing my journal, why I am writing every single day. Express myself Since…

Why I am using a Paper Notebook for Planning my Day

In my previous post I mentioned that I switch back to a paper notebook for certain things like planning my day. For a guy that those everything on purpose and likes to have everything available on his phone, tablet and notebook, this has to have a very good reason doing it an analog way. Let me tell you why. Intentionally Slower When…
