One question you should to ask yourself to take back control over your money

When Cedric and I decided to leave London, we came across the big question – what the hell are we going to do with all our stuff? Furniture was easy; it stayed in the flat. The problems began when we started to empty those cupboards and drawers. It was like opening Pandora box.

The piles and piles of stuff we forgot we even had. Looking at dozens of bags filled with things we decided to give away, sell or throw away was overwhelming.

How I killed my ‘I’m not ready’ syndrome overnight

This story happened some years ago.

Back then I wasn’t very happy with my life – chasing deadlines, tired and stressed, living from Friday to Friday; enjoying the occasional breaks when I could sleep longer than 6 hours, read book at home rather than during morning commute and of course dream about all that I was going to do with my life… one day…

…when I had more time

…when I was less tired

…when I had more money

…when I had a better idea

…when I felt ready

…when when when… a word that became my mantra; my excuse;

I was drifting through life dreaming of a day when all the stars aligned and the change would happen.

How I Spent All Day With A Fugitive

Dominika and I did something a bit unusual this Friday: we spent most of the day with one of our email subscribers – Axel – who lives in Spain.

When he offered to visit us in Malaga, we thought it could be really cool. We didn’t know he’d bring beer, wine and cheese – that made it even cooler ;)

Anyway, he turned out to be an awesome guy and we spent a lot of time talking about his situation, his life and the great business project he is working on.

The First Pancake Rule

If you’ve ever made pancakes, you know the rule: the first pancake always goes to the bin… Or to an impatient, hungry kid hanging around you. Or to a dog ;-)

I have no idea why, but the first pancake never looks good. It’s never round and it’s either burnt or undone.

The really interesting part is how we react to this weird rule of nature: everybody just kind of accepts that in order to make bunch of perfect pancakes, you need to screw the first one up.

The Cool Thing About Hating A Job

I know this is definitely not the most appropriate thing to write on a career change blog but I’ll write it anyway:

I used to love my job.

Seriously.

It was a proper corporate job with all the trimmings: nice suit, PowerPoint slides and endless (often useless) important meetings.

When I started it, I was all in. Proud of it. Excited by it.

Yet I ended up hating it.

This rejection was the outcome of a slow and steady transformation process we should all be aware of.
