I love chess… trust me I’m going somewhere beneficial with this, stay with me…

I love how eccentric some chess players are (just look up Bobby Fischer if you don’t believe me), I also love the amount of preparation, work, concentration and effort it takes to play on a high level. It’s far more than just ‘thinking a few moves ahead’; top level Grand Masters (GM) know hundreds if not thousands of games of by heart.

Bobby Fischer

In 1972 Bobby Fischer destroyed the field and became the first non Soviet/Russian Chess World Champion since Max Euwe (Dutch GM) in 1937. …

I love Brendon Burchard.

After recently hearing him speak, a quote of his burned itself into my mind.

“People who avoid turning on their phone for the first hour of the day are 33% more productive.”

Immediately, after hearing that quote my ‘Croatianess’ took over, ‘BULLSHIT’ I thought.

But I was intrigued so I continued to listen.

How does keeping your phone turned off make you more productive?

  1. It’s human nature to want to compare. You might not think that you do, but when you’re on your phone,(time on social networks makes up over 50% of the time most people spend on their phone) you are comparing yourself to other people…

Growing up, I always thought that strengthening your weaknesses was a great idea. Sports and video games dominated my formative years and if an athlete had a weakness or if you couldn’t get passed a certain boss then you spent your time getting good at it.

Real life doesn’t work like that all the time

Then, as I grew up and entered the world of entrepreneurship, I realized very quickly that there were many more things that I sucked at (like really sucked at) than I was good at. When you’re new, have no money, and grow up with sports and video games, you think you have to be…


I have a new project that I’m starting. That’s not true, I’ve already started. I need and want to learn more, faster, and I need a way of holding myself accountable.

That project is to become an investor, and the way that I’m going to hold myself accountable is to report to you on a regular basis.

Why do you care that I’m learning how to invest?

Because you can benefit. You can benefit by learning along with me, from the mistakes I make, and the lessons that I learn. …
