With my last semester at university ending in two weeks, a new chapter of my life will start very soon. Sure, I still need to do my master thesis in the next half year, but that is definitely something else.
Finally I will have more than enough time to focus on my hobbies and interests in life. I will be free to everything I want and do not have the pressure or fear before a test or exam.
Sure, some of you might disagree with this and think, that going back to work is in fact more time consuming compared to studying full time, but that is just not true, at least in my special case.
As you might have realized by now, I am definitely neither average nor normal. I am just a bit special in the way I do things in life.
The moment I will be back at work, doing my 40 – 50 hours a week, I know that I will be finished with this, the moment I leave work or close the laptop. With studying, this wasn’t possible for me. It was always there in the back of my head.
“Oh, you can do this, you should to that.”
And the closer I was to the exams, the more horrible it became. Therefore, I studied a lot! And with a lot, I mean, a lot!
Knowing that there is nothing on your schedule that you do not want to do, this is in fact the best thing in the world. I have so many goals I want to reach, so many open tasks that are waiting for me to get done. And now, finally the time has come. Sure, this year is already the best year of my life so far, but with the end of a need to take courses at university, this will make things even better.
But what will I do afterwards? Straight going back to work and finish my book? Relax a little bit in-between? Doing some sport, or even a vacation?
Ok, that last one was funny, wasn’t it? A vacation? I haven’t done this in a while. Four years, to be precise. I just don’t need a vacation from my life, everyday feels like being on vacation already.
Believe me or not, but I have everything I need here at my place. And honestly, I am on a mission. I have goals to reach! I can’t waste my time with something unimportant? Ok, I can! But I don’t want to! I don’t feel the desire to go somewhere else. Sure, doing a road trip in a Porsche? I am in, but I haven’t one yet, therefore, give me some more time.
With the old chapter closing, I also want to use this moment and make some changes in my lifestyle. In the past, worrying and doubting was something I have wasted too much time on. But these days are over. I will change my life even further. Going more into the extrem and forgetting all about the things that I don’t like.
In order to reach all my goals, I need to do more. This can’t be it! Therefore, I will just do things more extreme, more focused, more goals oriented.
With this blog project being kind of the thing I do in between presentations and finishing the last reports and projects for university these days, I will also have more time for this on the schedule. I finally want to make the website a bit better, going more into the details and start with new topics I haven’t talked about after all, like the world of sport for example.
This world is a magical place. You get up and get the chance to change the world you are living in. Piece by piece, step by step. Am I the most ultra motivated guy you know? I don’t know, but I will become this person!
You don’t need to be the smartest person in the room, but the hardest working one.
In fact, if you are the smartest person in the room, please, leave the room and go somewhere else where you will learn from others that are better at the things they are doing.
Do I need to be world class? Do I need to be the best? No! But I need to be satisfied with myself. In the last half year I have improved so much in every walk of life, from racing to the meditation practice. But this is not the signal to start doing less. This is the sign for doing even more in the future.
The future belongs to you, but only if you chose to take the chances and be prepared to suffer.
I will make this change! Not because I need to, but because I want to!
See you next time!
