Always reach out to your fellow man.
I was reminded how awesome and helpful this community is. Within the last month alone, I have met several truly remarkable people and made great friends.
Only through reaching out online and taking every opportunity to meet up in person. I am truly amazed.
Remy Sheppard from www.conqueringyourlife.com invited me on his podcast, and I felt very honored by that request. Humbled, even.
He has been running blogs for years now, and I am merely starting out.
We just connected on Skype and started chatting – and he gave me ample opportunity to talk…
… and to introduce the German version of “Sesame Street” (or something kind of close to it) to the American audience. 😉
Some things we focused on included:
God and Religion – is what we directly experience really all there is?
Government and corporations, political correctness. A short venture into “shirtstorm”.
Arguing in a mutually beneficial way – how to step out of your ideological “box” and focus on the real issues.
Moxie and moving forward – embrace your heart and confront your fears. Killer Instinct = Emotional Honesty.
Chasing after money vs. providing value.
Jokes and the German language.
Gaining life experience by reading autobiographies.
How consistent reading and writing has helped me change my mind – becoming happy is something you have to WANT.
Time – the most valuable resource everyone has.
You can check out the podcast (plus Bernie and Ert!) here:
I am sleeping my regular time, though was still a bit tired over the day. That may have two reasons:
#1 – If I worked very intensely one day, the next day is almost always less productive.
#2 – 6.25 hours is still not enough sleep for me.
I’ll stick to my 6.25 hour schedule and see if my tiredness is something consistent.
Sweets and snacks
No problem. I have so many other things that require my attention – foregoing Social Media is not difficult.
What have I achieved?
I have to say, writing is real fun for me, and I am quite happy that I started to get into a regular writing habit more than half a year ago.
Because now I have a collection of many moments and experiences from my life, and the exciting part is – I can actually share them with the world through my blog!
And nobody can do anything to stop me 😉
Don’t worry, I make sure they are relevant to the main question – how can we become as happy as we want to be?
My main point here though is that I have a lot of drafts for future articles. Editing is more work than I thought – it takes the same time, if not more, than writing the draft – but I can start with a solid base and already know what I will be writing about.
As I mentioned above, Remy Sheppard was kind enough to invite me onto his podcast. It was great to just shoot the shit and talk.
I am in this for ca. 3 – 4 weeks now, and even though this blog is online, I have already made a handful of connections and met awesome people in person.
That is truly something to be grateful for.
NoNothingNovember continues: Day 21 tomorrow.
