When goals become obsessions

I had a sudden insight today. Goals and desires won’t be achieved until they transform  into something real until they become  an obsession. Only in the moment when the only thing that you think about it’s that particular goal, only then that goal will go on the course of becoming reality.

Until then the goal it’s just a wish. Something that you say to make yourself feel good. Something that you look upon, but you never really dare to go to.

When I realised this, I was sitting on a bench. Eating some pizza and listening a podcast on my phone. Looking at the pigeons that were swarming around me. Continue reading When goals become obsessions

How do you know you’re being productive?

I’ve haven written for ages for this blog.

I could say that I have a good excuse, but to be honest, I could’ve found some time to write something here as well. And I say here as well, because I haven’t been sitting on my hands all this time. I’ve been writing. Quite a lot lately. And I’ve changed jobs as well.  True story.

But, let’s get to the point. How do you know you’re being productive? Continue reading How do you know you’re being productive?

I’ve made 27 years

First of August is my birthday. And I feel a little bit strange. Not because of the age or because I got older or other unimportant stuff like this. But because, looking back at the last year, so many things have changed.

If I’m looking back on what happened from 2015 to 2016, there wasn’t that much. You could probably say that I was a little bit worse. A little bit more overweight, a little bit more money issues and other stuff. It wasn’t better. Continue reading I’ve made 27 years

The story of me running 21 kilometers

Ever since I’ve signed up for this semi marathon, I’ve always doubted myself that I will be able to finish it. I’m not a runner, I’m not a guy that does too much physical activity. As I was saying in my story about my weight loss, I do little to none.

Since March I started to run, but the most that I’ve managed to run till now was 5 kilometres. And that run had exhausted me. But time doesn’t wait and little by little, day by day, the set day for the semi marathon arrived. No matter if I was prepared or not.

23rd of April 2017.

I woke up as usual for my week-end days. Around 6:30. I was trying to pump up myself. I was thinking about those 21km from the beginning of the day. I made myself a light breakfast and I started to do some stretching, I’ve massaged my feet, trying to be in my best condition for the run.

My biggest fear on this run is was that my body will break down. That my feet will give up. In my training runs, I’ve always had issues with this. After the first kilometer, my feet hurt. My shins burned. And this is why I’ve never managed to run more than 5km. Continue reading The story of me running 21 kilometers

How to beat procrastination

Ah, procrastination! The pompous word that is starting to replace laziness. We aren’t lazy anymore, we are procrastinating. Because lazy is an adjective, while procrastinating is a verb.

I’ll go a little bit into grammar (which, I’ll admit it, it might not be my forte). The adjective is used to describe things, while verbs are defined by action. This is why we are more comfortable about saying “I procrastinate” rather than “I’m being lazy”. Lazy will attach us a label, while procrastination is an action that we do, and we can stop it, eventually.
