What does Self Management mean to me

Working in an environment where you are wearing many different hats can be quite intense. I am the tech lead at a e-commerce company and I got quite a few duties there. On the other side I am investing a lot into myself, time and energy. Indeed, that is a lot to take care off and that’s not all, I also want…

The Routines that Drive my Day

Yesterday we talked a bit about planning your day, but I totally let out a major part, that helps me every day; routines. When I started to think more about productivity and a meaningful life, I also read a lot about creating routines. Fixed procedures in a fixed timeline that should help you to start or finish your day. Personally I got…

Why And How To Prepare For The Next Day

Let’s do that, first I will tell you why it’s so important to plan your day and then how you could do it. I hate suprises…

Plan Margin

The last few weeks have been quite intense for me. Appointments over and over, traveling, starting my writing challenge, challenging myself even a bit more… I experienced days where I thought that’s it, here is the limit. I cannot push myself any further. But instead of giving up on my challenge, I did another thing; adding margin and doing that in advance.…

An approach to turning down the noise

This topic fits kind of well, today I got some noise canceling headphones. I really thought about that for a long time and finally went out to get some.

And since I am visiting my parents on the weekend I also thought a little about my childhood. I actually had a great childhood and have grown up pretty normal, I would say.…

Things you NEED to buy

When I was also doing reviews on YouTube I watched a lot of this bigger YouTubers that this unboxing and gear videos. They had titles like 10 things every videomaker needs or 10 gadgets you neeed for your mac. Back then, I basically also purchased some of that stuff. Today, as I am into minimalism and really think about that stuff, well…

Hanlon‘s razor

It tells the following; „Never attribute malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.“ Let‘s dig a little into this.

Meaningful Relationships

Today I had a chat with one my friends, that I haven‘t met or talked to for at least 2 months I think. Yes, I am still considering him as a friend. That‘s what I want to talk about today, how I think about that topic. It‘s normal – don‘t worry If you are remembering back to school, didn‘t you have this…

Is it worth it?

This is something I am often thinking about, is the way I am living worth it? Why I am not just taking an easy path, like other people do. Working their 8 hours a day, going home, turning the TV on and don’t think a second about any goals or anything they want to achieve. Instead I am coming home, most of…
