Determine What Is Enough For You



How do you define enough? What is enough? It's a thought provoking question that most of us don't think about. I'm guilty of this myself. I know what is enough for me in say I just want a small home or a small wedding but project wise? I want to do a lot of things. Ideas are spurring out everywhere that sometimes I don't even know where to begin or worse, I don't know what's important anymore. I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad thing to be a jack of all trades and a master of none or vise versa. It's debatable.

This is something to think about, not just career wise but to really examine your life and how you want to exist. Then build your life around it. Simple.

Don't Save It All For The End

Don't Save It All For The End


I've been reading the 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss and one of his stories strikes me. I needed to share it in hopes that you may learn a thing or two as well.

"Jean-Marc had passed the point of no return, but it did't matter. After two weeks of adjusting to the breakfast, lunch and dinner, he had no desire to escape. The most basic of foods and good friends proved to be the only real necessities, and what would seem like a disaster from the outside was the most life-affirming epiphany he'd ever experienced. The worst wasn't really that bad. To enjoy life, you don't need fancy nonsense, but you do need to control your time and realize that most things aren't as serious as you make them out to be.

Now 48, Jean-Marc lives in a nice home in Ontario, but could live without it. He has cash but could fall into poverty tomorrow and it wouldn't matter. Some of his fondest memories still include nothing but friends and gruel. He is dedicated to creating special moments for himself and his family and is utterly unconcerned with retirement. He's already lived 20 years of partial retirement in perfect health.

Don't save it all for the end. There is every reason not to."

I Don't Have To Look At The Big Picture Now

I Don't Have To Look At The Big Picture Now


My mind has been all over the place lately and it still is as of this morning. But as I'm writing this, I told myself to take a step back, pause for a moment and breathe. What making me feel miserable? What do I want to achieve and how do I achieve it?

Before I begin I realize the pen and paper I have on hand, jotting down my usual to do list is what's causing it. I'm crunching time, doing everything I wanted to do in the few hours I have in a day, not knowing if it's the right one is making me head go ballistic. Because I began to question myself. Is this the right way of doing it? Should I be doing this instead of that?

I was so caught up with the steps to get to my goal that I forgot the very essence of why I'm doing this in the first place. Why do I wake up at 4 am everyday to workout? Because I want to feel good in my own skin. Why am I spending so much time on this new project? Because I want to change how people think about consumerism.

I realize I have to live each day with an intention and purpose and that I don't have to look at the big picture now because that exist in the future. What I have in my head may not exactly be it. It's just an idea of what I hope to achieve but that's about it.

Nothing On My Mind


I have a lot of things in my head my right now and I feel like time is just passing without me pinning down on exactly what I need to do. I meant that for this moment right here right now and not in the future. I should be working but instead I'm taking this time to clear my head.

You see I have a ton on my to do list but I don't know how to navigate through them or if I did I'll just go around and around without a plan. So here I am blabbing around this page without a clear purpose.

I should be reading, watching videos, fixing up my site, figuring things out etc etc etc...
