For 2017, I set myself some objectives and after my calculations, it seems I achieved 65% of what I set myself, generally speaking.

[CHALLENGE] 2700 squats in December

I have finally finished the December’s challenge and I’m feeling not as I’ve supposed I’ll feel. It’s weird. Maybe because it’s also the last challenge of this year.

The month that has just passed was important for me for two reasons: I’ve got a 9 to 6 job and started the Pomodoro challenge. Moreover, I believe the 9 to 6 job timed really well with this challenge. But I failed it! And I decided to fail it because it brings me a tremendous lack [...]

By | 2017-11-24T10:03:51+00:00 November 24th, 2017|Categories: Mindset|Tags: , , , , , , |

I remember I’ve always feared to interact with other people. You have to open yourself, share personal information with others, and you believe most of your personal information is weird and nobody will understand it. That was me. That was the way I was thinking a few years ago. But everything changed when I actually did [...]

But the more you run from it, the more it will affect you the second time you’ll encounter it. Unfortunately, there [...]
