Some things I do since a few years already:

Get up before 7am. Don’t try to fall asleep again if it doesn’t work immediately. Get out of your bed and start your day with whatever makes you happy. Head to work and get home early.

Fixed working-hours. If you have the luxury of flextime it seems tempting to enjoy the flexibility to start and end working whenever you want. However I would recommend that you set your own hours which allow you to do some life-related stuff after work.

A “yes” should be rare. Learn to say no!Say no to…

Because if you don’t, why should anybody else?

Recently it looks like every now and then people ask: “How can I get started as freelancer and get clients?”, “How can I get better at x?” “How can …” — you name it.

There is a simple answer: just value the work you do. Avoid to just execute for the sake of executing, do work that matters to you and add some value. It’s not about just throwing out stuff that looks or works the same as everything else.

It’s not about marketplaces that offer a certain amount of money just to execute. You are not just removing value…

Don’t care that much about your job title, do what you like and enjoy getting paid for it. Nobody hires you for the last job title you had: they hire you because of your track record, the things you did.

Learn as much as you can, everyday.

Try to get T-shaped which means being good in a few disciplines but at least master one.

Enjoy the time at work but care about your relationships and friendships: they are here to catch you if you fail and fall, work doesn’t.

Be nice to your colleagues and appreciate everybody in the company…

What you see on top is no secret it’s my life in digits, the only thing you can not see is how hard a friend and me worked out in two years.

I wore wearables for two years, tracked every single step until I discovered an article in a local online magazine which said that our government could use collected fitness data to rate our fitnesslevel for a better classification for social insurance when you’re self employed.

On the one hand I think this could be a good idea to wake up our society and motivate them to…
