Doing One Thing [71/365]

To make progress, one of the best solution is to focus on one single thing. For me right now, I have my day job, this daily writing, and I want to create a project that can help me become independent. This is too much. Since I have a family to take care of, I cannot just quit my job. I have committed to this daily writing for a year, so it is hard for me to quit that. Read more

Not Giving Up [70/365]

I’ve missed a few days of writing. To be very honest, that’s discouraging. It’s not been easy to choose to continue writing, I almost just gave up.

There are thousands of reasons you can find. Instead of seeing those as obstacles, try to turn them on their head and make them a positive. You have little time to work on your side project after work ? Read more

Focus Is Key [65/365]

In everything I do, there is one thing that can stop me completely from even trying: The fear of being disturbed. I think that once I focus on a task, I can just take it, slice it up, and get it done very quickly. The problem is to get to the focused state. If I get a message, or a notification every 5 minutes, it just will not be possible for me to get down to it. Read more
