“Learning to code is learning to create and innovate.” — Enda Kenny, Taoiseach, Ireland

After 2 years I came back to learning programming from the beginning.

Back in 2018, I started to learn to program with an Udemy Course on Web Developing teaching you HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

It was great. I felt really passionate about it.

However, as the course came to an end I felt like I know less and less of programming.

You ever felt that way? Why is that?

I guess a lot of concepts that I learnt in the 5 months of study I didn’t…


“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer” — Jim Carey

Yes, I know you think money is gonna bring more joy, happiness, better health, better food, and more opportunities.

You are gonna soon realize that all you did is fulfill your materialistic ego. This is all short term.

If you are a dumb ass right now, after buying a 1 Million Dollar house you are gonna be just the same dumb ass with a house. Welcome to reality.

There are enough people in…


“Good posture can be successfully acquired only when the entire mechanism of the body is under perfect control.” – Joseph Pilates

I am the worst when it comes to good body posture

  • Sitting in front of the computer all day.
  • Sleeping on any side but not on my back.
  • Lifted weights at the gym and now I have a hernia.
  • Sitting in a chair with my back bent like a banana
  • And many more…

This resulted in: Both Anterior and Lateral pelvic tilt problem, hernia, front-forwarded shoulders, falling head forward.

When you add all these problems it results in headaches, getting tired fast, poor blood circulation, gaining weight and many other…

From the book “The Creative Habit” by Twyla Tharp

So I am reading this book “The Creative Habit: Learn it and use it for life” by Twyla Tharp. Its an old book but is the first time I am reading and I find many interesting things to think about and meditate about.

Starting with a nice quote of her.

“I read for growth, firmly believing that what you are today and what you will be in five years depends on two things: the people you meet and the books you read.”

Every chapter of the book ends up with an…


That was the moment I thought “What If my body is not in balance and the problem is not my lower back but my entire body.”

As every 18 years old I was looking to extend the boundaries of my body by becoming more muscular and strong. The first thing that comes to mind “I need to go to the gym, lift big weights and drink protein shakes”.

I really like going to the gym. Little muscle growth was keeping me motivated. Training every muscle group twice a week was mandatory at the time. …

“These models will recognize the inter-connectedness of all things, turning away from the mindless materialism and consumerism that has destroyed the ecological capital on which we rely.”― Paul Austin, Microdosing Psychedelics: A Practical Guide to Upgrade Your Life

Apparently, there is a big trend amount of startups in Silicon Valley on the topic of microdosing psychedelics for productivity. I don’t know how people find out about the benefits of psychedelics on productivity but my experience started with one article from “Better Humans”. It wasn’t like I didn’t know about this at all. …

I played computer games since the age of 5. The first game I played was a version of GTA in 2001, which is similar to how Fortnite is today but wasn’t online and much less interactive. As I grew up I started to develop a passion for strategic games like World of Warcraft, Battlefield, and Call of Duty. The one game which I played professionally and competed at tournaments was Counter-Strike.

Gaming was never a career for me but I still kept playing because of the emotion rush and brain activity it was giving me at the time.

I have…

“Focus on being productive instead of busy.” — Tim Ferris

As a young adult working in a fast changing industry where being up to date with latest technologies has become a competitive advantage it became hard to find focus on what is actually important in life.

Instead of focusing on how to connect us better, social media giants apps on how to retain users on the platform as much as possible.

Authors of the book “Make Time” Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky, ex-employees of Google Ventures and YouTube have been studying the topic of “time” for a decade. …

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” — Albert Einstein

Upon starting my studies I was deeply concerned with my future.

Where do you see yourself in 5–10 years?

This question pressured me into thinking whether I am making the right choice for my future.

Will I be successful in 5–10 years? Will I be happy? Will I have everything what I want in life?

Influenced my motivational speakers of the hard work they have put in their 20’s and the grind life.

Biased by my friends, family and surrounding of the value of money in…


“Meditate. I practice Transcendental Meditation and believe that it has enhanced my open-mindedness, higher-level perspective, equanimity, and creativity. It helps slow things down so that I can act calmly even in the face of chaos, just like a ninja in a street fight. I’m not saying that you have to meditate in order to develop this perspective; I’m just passing along that it has helped me and many other people and I recommend that you seriously consider exploring it.”―

Ray Dalio,
