procrastination.

Posted on

there is always something that can be done now. always. even if that means not acting so you don’t go fuck up a sensitive situation or whatever that’s still something. however doing nothing is only doing something if its part of a bigger plan with, well maybe not a fucking road map but a clear idea of what needs to be achieved and a vague one of how to get there. every other type of doing nothing is called procrastination. that’s a killer. get a plan. break it down. stick to it. Its gonna get hard, and  as well as a having a good idea if you are getting somewhere or not,  you are going to need as much of the self-help PMA bullshit in your head as you can stomach. at least i think you will, how the fuck would I know I hasn’t really started yet. I’ve thrown the idea out there a little to a couple of friends but more on that tomorrow.

Money.

Posted on

People always say, that money doesn’t make you happy; and no-body listens to them. I am 26 years old, i have an annual income of close to 200,000usd, i pay less than 15 % in tax and i get 30,000usd a year as a housing allowance. I am not happy. So if it is not money that make us happy. what does? it’s a pretty simple question – what makes you happy? – and its definitely not a new debate or study, in fact I spent a whole semester studying the economics of happiness but i think it’s a question that most fail to answer. I would never be so presumptuous to assume that I can answer this question,  firstly for myself and then for everyone else but I intend to give it a shot. So with the knowledge that happiness is not found in money, I intend to leave my job. I intend to move to the other side of the world and try a living a different kind of life. I’ll let you know if I find anything interesting along the way.
