The Best Ways To Declutter Your Mind

The Best Ways To Declutter Your Mind

I have been unusually passive the last few weeks in everything I am doing, and I took step back to see what is causing this.

You might experience something similar; you might call it writer's block (although that is just a bogus excuse), or any other feeling around being stuck in the middle and not knowing what is next.

So, what is the best way to find footing again? Probably writing about it to get it off my chest I guess... What is the best way to declutter your mind than to get back on track?

Here we go:

Looking At Showmanship From Within

Looking At Showmanship From Within

Being on stage is an art form of its own. We all know how it feels to experience a good show, an exceptional speaker or a brilliant band. We also know everything about bad shows. If you want to emulate one or the other, it is inherently easier to copy a bad show. However, standing out and perform to your best potential is a long road and needs a lot of practise and self-reflection.

Creativity Is Like A Flame - It Needs Air

Creativity Is Like A Flame - It Needs Air

As a marketer first, I breathe on creativity and content. My hobbies are also creativity focused, be it music or writing or taking pictures. So, as you could imagine, being original and creative 100% of the time is impossible and I envy people who are for example professional writers who put out original content everyday. 

What I wanted to get into for the weekend is the process of how to get your fire burning and keep it lit so to speak. This is also a perfect opportunity to share your experience with others, everyone might have another method - so feel free to post a comment.

The Importance Of Planning Free Time For Yourself

The Importance Of Planning Free Time For Yourself

Being constantly consumed by an immense schedule to keep up with our work, our family and friends, as well as hobbies and the daily chores we all face - the save haven of sweet free time is rigorously being cut. But why would you cut the one thing that is the most precious to you? 

In a society that pushes you to live life to its fullest, one quickly gets caught in a vicious cycle of event /vacation hopping as well as an typical "YOLO"-attitude (You Only Live Once)...

How To Make Time?

How To Make Time?

Not everything needs to be perfect, but by pushing yourself into doing stuff, you'll get the luxury of finally realising what your strenghts are and how you might achieve perfection, at least to a degree. Pareto's Law (20/80) was never more relevant in our modern world, where we are over-stimulated with information...

Why You Should And Shouldn't Make New Year's Resolutions

Why You Should And Shouldn't Make New Year's Resolutions

So first off, I personally like making New Year's resolutions (yes, plural) but over the years I realized that I never really take off with my plans. So every year started with false promises and ended somehow in oblivion. That doesn't necessarily means I'm a bad person, it just means that this concept just didn't work for me, so I opted for a different approach.

Focus On Self-Worth In This Age Of Distraction

Focus On Self-Worth In This Age Of Distraction

Our lifestyles become faster almost every day with telecommunication, Social Media or simply the capabilities of your smartphone. People are constantly looking for the next big distraction and they don't stay calm very long.

Sometimes it all goes so fast that you find yourself wondering if it's all worth it or if anybody even cares about you or your work. Let me tell you, that they do(!) but they might be to distracted to take the time and move on quickly. I've seen this phenomenon in the work place, during my studies and also in my private life - after a while you think you've become dependent on feedback from others or are just lost when left alone.

Surround Yourself With People Who Are Smarter Than You

Surround Yourself With People Who Are Smarter Than You

The reason why I want to share with you my experience is that I believe in valuable and long term relationshsips and the best way to improve yourself or to motivate yourself in becoming better at your job or as a person, is to look up to others. Kids and teenagers do that instinctively with their idols.
