For a long time, I had a love-hate relationship with weekends. While I enjoyed them, I didn’t make any progress towards the life I want to live. And this made me miserable.
It was hard to figure out why I had zero motivation to do anything meaningful, as soon as the regular week was over. Waking up on a Saturday morning, all I wanted to do was make coffee and watch youtube videos or play video games.
Hey, it’s Saturday, I don’t need to be productive. This is my weekend, I can just do whatever I want to. …
After graduating from high school, I flew to New Zealand to work and travel. For a few months, I worked on a small farm in exchange for food and accommodation. I was feeding animals, harvesting fruits, vegetables, and relentlessly fighting weeds.
This type of work was mainly physical, as shoveling manure didn’t require much thinking or creativity. I was able to listen to audiobooks and podcasts while working, which made this experience even more enjoyable.
You could argue that this is a prime example of multitasking. I was doing physical work, while simultaneously taking in information and processing it. …

I want to share with you what I uncovered to help you reap much greater benefits from productivity tools and systems and realize your potential.
When life gets messy and requires you to handle many things at once, a solid productivity system should have your back. Task and project…
We often refrain from tackling the most influential problems in our lives because we are overwhelmed. Complex issues can seem daunting when we don’t even know where to start. However, if you get good at problem-solving, you will advance in personal growth and productivity, in your career, and in relationships.
Getting good at solving difficult problems means getting good at life.
When you understand the root causes of a problem, you can find a good solution. Treating symptoms, however, will mute the problem— until it recurs and knocks you off your feet. …

I often have the feeling that time is accelerating. Weeks and months go by and in retrospect, I don’t remember much of what I did. This year in particular felt incredibly short, mainly due to the Coronavirus. Staying home, we encounter less memorable experiences and exciting adventures.
Routine and regularity cause days to blend together. When nothing exciting happens, time flies by. We need to do new things, leave our comfort zone, and create memories. …
Be honest to yourself, do you actually put into practice what you learn in books, videos, and medium stories? I didn’t. At least for a long time.
On my journey towards a better personality and a better life, I increased my knowledge and understanding of important concepts for a long time, without ever acting upon it. I felt like I was making progress, but it was just limited to knowledge and theory. I needed to take real action to experience real growth.
After a few years, I noticed that I was treading on the spot. The extensive engagement with self-development…
I thought I’ve lost all of my creative power. I was stuck for quite some time. Lately, I was making hardly any progress in my writing and didn’t have a single spark of inspiration. A creative rut is frustrating.
Only because I was committed to writing every day, I kept going. And in the end, it paid off.
Today I sat down today to work on a medium draft I was struggling with for a few days. I wasn’t happy with my storytelling and just couldn’t find the right words.
I was starting to get frustrated when it struck me…

Taking action towards your goals consistently is hard.
For most people, progress towards personal projects and personal development depends heavily on leftover energy at the end of the day. Which is a very unreliable approach to growth.
Imagine you want to read more books, work on a personal project, learn something new, or get into shape. Do you have the physical and mental energy to do it when you come home at the end of your day?
Trying to get stuff done after your daily grind will be challenging. Sometimes you will have the willpower or motivation to do it…
I don’t write about growth and personal development because I have figured it all out, but because I want to share what I’ve learned from struggling.
