If there is no struggle, there is no progress - Frederick Douglass
Dreams. Expectations. High hopes. If we won’t schedule them specifically they will just stay what they are right now. This 100 Days Journey is not about big leaps of change. It’s about small changes, tiny adjustments and habits forged day by day. Change is not given, found or won. It’s produced, it’s created, it’s wrenched from our fears.
Everyone wants to create some kind of a change in their life. But how should we start? What’s most important in the beginning is to find the right strategy, plan and organize your change. Then we need establish sustainable habits, create the change and learn how to maintain it.
If there is no struggle, there is no progress - Frederick Douglass It’s corny title I know, but nothing else better reflects what I’m going to do. This is an introduction and invitation to my Journey. It will not be about big leaps of change. It will only be about small changes, tiny adjustments and habits forged day by day. I know this not what most people are looking for. You won’t find any magic formula, overnight success or recipe for greatness here. It may seem that it will be about arduous, repetitive and boring baby steps. But that’s how […]
Don't be afraid of change, it is leading you to a new beginning – Joyce Meyer Once you start your Journey don’t expect anyone to notice. Don’t wait for approval, don’t wait for help and don’t expect it. That goes with the territory. It’s yours. Approval People who get the most approval and respect are the ones who care the least about it. Once you start being busy doing you’ll notice that you stopped concerning yourself about other people’s opinion. Advance confidently on the Journey towards your vision and dreams even if it’s against the judgment of your entourage. […]
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit – Aristotle Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut not making the progress in the personal development that you wanted? There are a couple of things you can do to break that pattern (Creatures of patterns). Block time The one that works best for me is blocking time for my morning and evening routines. But how can having and doing a morning and evening routine help me be more focused, less stressed and more successful? Before chaos It insures the very […]
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right - Oprah Winfrey January 15th How is your new year coming out so far? How is your plan? How are your resolutions?

January is already over and I really wanted to tell you what happened during that 31 days. You might think what could possibly have changed in a single month? Did anything change at all or am I just embellishing reality? Bear with me and you’ll find out. DaybyDay Let’s start with the biggest thing right away. If I could only name one thing that made the biggest difference and gave the best outcomes, without any hesitation I would say scheduling and organizing my day before and after work. This doesn’t sound like anything big but it’s really huge. Scheduling each […]
Based on a Jeff Olson’s ‘The slight egde’ Water or soda? Do you ever have a choice between a glass of water and a glass of soda and you pick the soda because “well if you have a glass of soda today, it’s not like you’re going to wake up overweight and unhealthy tomorrow?” Paradox That’s basically how we all like to think that somehow, success only comes from doing huge, important things right. We have that big paradox. On one hand, you’re right. The little decision doesn’t really matter. This one decision won’t really affect your health […]
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together -Vincent Van Gogh Today You went to bed last night and you had all those ideas about how you’re going to get up this morning and things are going to be different. Today you’re going to start. Start taking steps towards doing some of those projects that you know that will get you closer to living that dream life you keep playing over and over in your head. Cubical world Different from practical life that you’ve got to get up and meet every day. To go […]
Meaningful blink of an eye Let’s start with a tiny question. Do you think 100 days is a long time? Well, it’s only a matter of perspective, right? If you are a child waiting for Christmas or your birthday, 100 days will feel like eternity. If you’ll find yourself only waiting for something that you have no control over you won’t be either present in the moment nor grateful for the ride. In this case it can turn out to be a total waste of time. On the other hand, having a clear plan, taking actions and appreciating your journey […]
