September’s resolutions & New routine

I have a tendency of being over excited about anything new  and then completely leave it after some time of intense dedication to it (be it a project, a hobby, a routine). I wouldn’t say that I am not consistent with my activities, just that when I start something I also plunge into it at 120% and dedicate all my free time to it (like I did for knitting & crochet for 4 months) and then I leave those activities completely, most probably because of intellectual exhaustion. However, some only temporarily. I am excited by trying new things, but there are hobbies that I actually love for what they are and which I pursue on more normal way after the first excitement. Hence the danger of September, a perfect month for resolutions after a slow Summer, which for me is basically a free ticket to make-your-schedule-as-exciting-as-you-want-everything-is-possible! Works for January too…

Back on 5 months full of projects…to be continued

After being away for almost  5 months, today is the day I am back to being a blogger. I have missed the creativity flow of writing every day and still I needed the time. I had so much going on I had to cut on some activities and although this would have been a great thing to have as I can share feelings and write about anything, I had zero creativity as my mind was concentrated for months on organising and planning.

Week 37 – The Complete List of the Books I Bought, Read and Loved in 2017

Because I have bought, read and been positively surprised by many books all along 2017 (many of which I have already written about on this blog), here is a complete list of everything I have been happy to discover this year. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to read all of the ones I have bought or been offered but, as every time I go on holidays the “books to read” list decreases quickly, I am sure that by the end of the year most of the titles hereunder will be in light blue.

Week 31 – What would you do if you knew you would not fail? A question from Chris Guillebeau

I feel that most of the 30-Something are looking for a sense in their lives. As if people do not want to just pass by and earning enough money to pursue their hobbies, living in a nice place , going regularly on holidays and having a family was not enough anymore.  Continue reading “Week 31 – What would you do if you knew you would not fail?

Week 27 – Readings of the month (on Life, Love, Apocalypse and creating a low budget Startup)

My S.O. having left me for a humanitarian trip of 3 weeks to the other side of the world (more to come later) and my holidays not being planned for another week, I had to remember how to be alone for 10 days. Lonely however I certainly did not feel, in fact the amount of things I was able to slip in just a few days made me think that I should probably make more time just for myself on a regular base.

Week 26 – On the Power of Small habits and on Getting Things Done

In July and August the city and all offices in Paris emptied and I was left thinking about how to organize my work and my activities from September on (that is when schools start and most of the people come back to work). Because we (girls) often like to set symbolic dates to change our routines and implement new habits (like new year resolutions, birthday resolutions, “important dates” resolutions) I started thinking about how to be more active, proactive and productive from then on.
