At this moment I don’t know how to move on. What are the components of this obstruction?


I guess it is because:

  • there are things to do, but too many
  • there are things to do, but I am not sure if they are the right things to do
  • doubt about the right things to do that make the most progress
  • having a too perfectionist view which witholds me from starting
  • i really don’t know what to do
  • feeling fatigued or uninspired


I can have better days if I:

  • identify important things
  • How? Imagine your perfect day
  • What is needed to reach this perfect day?
  • What are your time wasters and things that don’t add to this perfect day?
  • What are the things that give you energy during your perfect day?
  • Do more of this
  • minimizing activities
  • automate recurring time wasters
  • starting and finishing activities instead of doing them perfect
  • when fatigued or uninspired, doing ‘more’ has never helped. just sport, go outside or see friends.
  • allocate times to work > 2 x 2 hours a day
  • read more

What do you do when you don’t know the next step?




I have some stories in me that I need to tell. Mostly fiction & poetry.
