I feel broken and that feeling just isn’t going away easily. I was tough on myself, gave myself a break, took things one step at a time, and tried many other ways to feel better. Yes, I get through the day (not without difficulty) but this is not the way to progress, get the things I want in life, or create happiness in the long-term.Continue reading “Navigating Rock Bottom”

To begin with the good news, I finally started reading a book! And I did my reading while doing exercise! It was a super half hour for me today as I have been trying to build both activities into my regular habits for a long while. The book that stood out as the one to get me going is called How to Become a Really Good Pain in the Ass by Christopher Dicarlo.Continue reading “5 Big Qs to Ask Yourself and Others”
Dealing with people lately has been one frustrating ordeal after another for the last few weeks. On the personal side, fighting around me is making me sad and inflexibility from others is pushing me to the edge of my easygoing nature. Professionally, people have just not lived up to the essence of that word; the idea of paperwork has just became a joke and that was just not acceptable from my side.Continue reading “No Man No”
For the past week, trying to become an entrepreneur with an actual business has been an emotional rollercoaster for me. One minute, I feel ready to market and deliver everything; the next minute, I think I cannot do this so should just look for my next desk job.
Yes, entrepreneurship is a risky, challenging, and overwhelming feat to take on. But if you really want it, you will accept all that and keep going. Sometimes, I really question whether I accept that or not. But I know the alternative of working the desk job all my life is not what I want. Is that a good enough reason? I won’t give up on this dream and I know I will really regret later in life if I look back and think I gave up opportunities and effort.Continue reading “Lessons for Entrepreneurs I”
Trying to understand depression and how it should be managed or overcome is something that comes up a lot. I realized that we all face our own version of it, triggered by different pasts and having unique sources of comfort. I just wanted to share some thoughts about what my version of depression looks like.Continue reading “What My Depression Looks Like”
It seems quite counter intuitive. But I picked up the book with this title by Jocko Willink because, as time has passed and I have struggled, I realized this was true. Discipline does not tie us down; discipline creates freedom and more – relief, happiness, achievement.Continue reading “Discipline Equals Freedom”
In the blank isolation of a hotel room between flights, I found a great time to make a list of all the reasons why I launched this project and why it is so important to me. The list is lost somewhere in my luggage now but the exercise was good for me. All these answers are what I need to remember often and use as motivation.
I want to do this…Continue reading “Why?”
