What if my dreams were all dreamt, all achievements were achieved and all games were played? What if that was the case at my current age of 33 years?
Then I think: HOW BORING WOULD THAT BE! I prefer to continuously walk the muddy road rather than achieving it early. The fun is in the ride. Arriving is only a deliberate break to ponder what the next goal will be.
So, #hustle and #make more of the good stuff as long as you haven’t arrived (yet). You actually never will… 😉

I’ve tried this new thing. It’s called offline status updates!
> Wait, what’s that?
It’s when you have something (important) to say but you don’t tell it to cyber selves but only those you can see in the eyes.
> You are a crazy man.
I know, I know. But I like being on the forefront of cutting edge stuff.
> I admire you.
I do, too.

As a child, teenager and early adult I used to be in the following mindset:
- I have to know this automatically, just like that.
- When I learned something new or found out how something worked I felt I was cheating.
- When I achieved something I diminished, even negated the achievement: I told myself I was lucky and only the circumstances made me accomplish that. It was not my effort that caused the result.
Obviously, I was standing in my own way punching myself down whenever I „had“ to learn something new because I was not good or smart enough to know it „just like that“.
Don’t be stupid. Don’t sabotage yourself.
