  • 51. Grit

    January 25, 2017

    So today I spent a lot of time marketing my new company, and nothing really happened except that I spend a lot of time. And began to doubt that I would ever make it. I guess the only sane response to such feelings is to grit your teeth.
  • 50. When I Escaped the Future

    January 24, 2017

    Don't make future goals more important than they actually are.. Sure you have to think about the future and important goals and all that, and sometimes at the expense of happiness in the present. But when does the balance tip? When is it too much? When have you become a hostage of the future?
  • 49. Phased Life

    January 23, 2017

    This blog is what I've been wanting to do. Because there is so much more to share. I don't think I would have done it as CEO of that other company. Then I would have been counting beans now. Not thinking about so many other things to share. So maybe I am in the right place, and those phases of life (finish education, get career, start family) are just illusions. At least insofar as I think of myself having 'failed' to complete a couple of them 10 and 20 years ago.
  • 39. The Solution to Whiners

    January 13, 2017

    I can start looking for the real solutions to the world's ills, including President Trump. Whining on social media isn't one of them.
  • 37. Not a Description.

    January 11, 2017

    Your ability to earn money is a measure of how well you handle a tool that allows you to live as you want to live - and therefore be. It is not a description of who you already are and what you are worth. But in our society you have to work harder to internalize that perspective well and truly - much harder than you ever have to work to earn your first million.
  • 27. Soul Geography

    January 1, 2017

    Your soul will take you were you need to go. Feel the truth of these words instead of automatically denying them, because you don't believe in 'soul'. Just feel what the word does to you.
  • 24. The Burning Heart

    December 29, 2016

    If you've seen any good boxing movies you know that they are not about winning in the ring. They never were. They are about winning over yourself. As you get older, you discover those are the victories you never get too old to have.
  • 16. The Key

    December 21, 2016

    Peace is first and foremost an Inner Experience, an Inner Journey. So outside events can be pretty screwy and it is still possible to create inner peace, in principle, as long as the focus is on it and not primarily on controlling outside events. Some events, of extreme stress cannot be controlled - inside or outside. ...
  • 11. Simple Power

    December 16, 2016

    Acting on the fear, putting something in motion, even if you don’t solve the fear … that probably has a positive effect. I’ve felt so on my own a number of times. Like when I make myself feel more mentally calm and ‘on course’, by just doing the dishes. Not frenzied action to escape unpleasant feelings. Orderly calm action with purpose, even if it doesn’t change anything right away or is substantially relevant to the feelings at hand. Doing all the dishes doesn’t solve my unemployment problem, but it makes me feel that maybe I have what it takes to solve it myself. Even if that is only proved, when it is proved.

    Making order and focus in my surroundings tend to gradually pull me back to a feeling of order and focus in my mind. At the very least, I will feel some sort of accomplishment. And that actually counts for more than I first thought.
