Happy New Year!

I wanted to write something. Less Focus is more important now than ever. With the constant false values of everyday life. Media and material driven.

I’m reading (audible) great book right now called “Lost Connections” by Johann Hari. I found this via Blinkist.

The book is about depression, why we get depressed, and how to get happy again.

The fact that I’m reading a book about depression, goes to show you what the end of 2018 has been like. Really Q4 2018 (I think my mind works better in quarters.)

My TalkSpace counselor says that holidays are a stressful time for a lot people. Sage words.

This brings me back to Less Focus.

When There’s too much going on, when you feel overwhelmed, most likely you are spending too much time, energy, resources on the wrong things.

You need to do less. You need to focus on the things that matter. You need to focus on emptiness. You need that peace of impermanence.

My 2019 brings lots of joy to you and yours. It’s the start of your brand new life.

What’s going on?

I can’t believe it’s been more than 6 months since my last blog post. An apology to myself… but what have I been doing?

I’ve been working on OrgNote. My magnum opus.

I felt I couldn’t write, and sufficiently focus on OrgNote at the same time.

It’s all about focus after all…

Update on OrgNote

So where are we with OrgNote? I’ve been focusing on the soul, aka data structure of notes. All back-end… it actually doesn’t seem like I got a lot accomplished.

But I think I’m close… to the feeling of euphoria of inventing this something that hopefully scratches more than just my itch.

What’s the most important thing?

Do you have to give up your life, for your art?

What’s more important, your life’s work? Or your life?

I’m going to continue development of OrgNote, I think I owe everyone, including myself, that much.

The foundation is there, the whisper of maybe something, maybe.

So I’ve Blogged Again

Whoa, can’t believe I haven’t blogged since May!

Lots have happened since then, the biggest news is my 4-year old went to his first day of pre-k this week!

Hooray, so proud of him.

Also, I’ve been putting my nose to the grind stone on OrgNote. I hope to be in the position to complete the prototype soon! But sadly most likely not going to be available for awhile, perhaps a year, but ASAP! 😏

The reason I felt compelled to blog was that I wanted to share this great book called “The Power of When” by Dr. Michael Breus.

I’ll do a write up of the book soon.

RIP ZenOverflow

In life, things come and go, life & death.

The reason I started this blog was because of Seth Godin, recommendation to write everyday and Steven Pressfield’s influential War of Art.

I was doing pretty good with blogging everyday from March 2016 to June 2016? So you cay say, it was 60 days of writing and publishing your thoughts everyday.

I also forced myself to tag every blog post. Sure some of it was just rants, but a theme emerged.

I learned a lot. I learned what I liked to write about. I learned what’s motivating to me. I had discovered my voice.

I am not that skilled of a writer. My writing are short. I rant about random things/current events. But I learn I love to write about happiness, a philosophy for living. I like to write about habits, productivity & routines.

I discovered my life motto, “The Art of Stress-Free Success”, (inspired by GTD)

Then I stopped, I think I felt like I was adding pollution to this world. Perhaps I shouldn’t have stopped, but the benefits have been gained. I know what I want to talk about. I know what I want to do.
