Follow your own path

Right now my head is full of ideas I want to share with all of you. One of these is the idea of your own path. Every single human has his or her own path to follow. Whether you know it or not you are on some kind of path.

It’s important that the path you follow is what you truly want and makes you happy.

Recently, i keep thinking a lot about how people live there lives and what they do for a living and whether they are happy with it or not.

I also look at my own self and think about where I’m going. I have chosen my path. I like my path.

Yes, there is a path of life -your life-, but also a path you take for a project … like a blog.

If you read older articles of this blog, you’ll notice, that the blog was not started this year, but years ago. I posted some articles with a lot of time between them, always asking myself if the things I talk about are worth it.

But to go back on track – yes also this article is following some kind of path – and i want to talk about my thoughts about the path that I take for this blog.

I’d like to share some ideas, thoughts and stuff with you, that helped me and may help you too. I don’t write for a big audience, but for people like you who like my style of writing and like to connect with me. Even if it’s only one true fan I keep writing for. It’s better to have one true reader I can help than hundreds, who don’t get anything out of my words.

I am fascinated by the idea of minimalism, so that’s part of the path where this blog is heading. What minimalism means for me and what it means for my life or your life is what you’ll read on this blog.

I invite you to follow your own path by joining me. If you decide that this blog may help you to follow your own path, that’s fine, if not, that’s fine, too. It’s your decision.


The Beginning of something new

Every new year seems to be the beginning of something new. So does this year. The numbers 2 0 1 0 i just like. This year is great. Every Year seems to be greater than that before. So this time i do not write about the things that may happen this year, but i write about them while they are happening.

I want to share with you something. I want to share with you a part of my life, some thoughts that come to my head. Some interesting ideas. Some new philosophy and mayby some philosophical views of life.

To be honest, i want to share with you a lot, but as you know. This is the Internet. I am not as free as I am as I write for myself. What I write here should be printable in the newspapers, live on CNN. To write something on the Internet which is not good to be known by hundred and thousands of people than the Internet is the wrong place for it.

Yes, the Internet gives something like anonymity, but this anonymity is no real one.

Thats enough for now. More of my thoughts will follow someday soon.


What about failing?

It’s not easy, to answer this question. It’s not that easy at all. It’s all about how you live your life. What’s important to you, and what’s not. If you keep trying to reach a goal which is not really important to you, it can be very very hard to reach it. Maybe you’ll reach it never.
But if you want to reach something with all your heart, there is power behind it.

But what if you are some lazy guy, who enjoys the present and dreams about the future, but procrastinate things, like i used to do the last years. I’m in a process, where i develop my skills in living my life, reaching my goals and one part of the process is this blog, to talk about it and get the feedback of others.

There are more complex answers and this blog is on life, to reach goals, so some articles may be a part of the answer to your life. The best and short answer on that question is, to never never give up. Yes, you can make a break on reaching your goal, but don’t give up if you fail. You may try something new, go a new way, but don’t give up. And try to find out, how to reach your goal. But never give up. You have to find your way. There are many ways to reach a goal.

This is what i want to talk about in this blog. To find the best ways, which really work, to reach your goals.


How to reach a goal

Make sure, you really want to reach that goal
If you have a goal that you want to reach, you have to make sure, that you really want to reach it.
Ask yourself the Questions: Why do i want to reach that goal? What are the advantages of it, what are the disadvantages? Do i really want to spend the time i need for it? Can i reach the goal? Make the goal your goal. Otherwise it may only be a dream which never comes true.

Make a Plan, visualize it
A good plan is absolutely necessary. Write your goal down. It’s good, to be aware, what you really want. It’s your goal. You can do this on paper or digital. I use Keynote to keep focused. For some people, written plans may help. For me, i need visualized and simple plans. A plan on which you don’t look, is no good plan. Make a plan you like. And keep it simple. If the plan is to complicated, you don’t read it. Use your imagination and creativity. Mindmaps may also work. Find out what technique fits best for you and fix on it.

Set milestones
By separating your goals into smaller parts, you’ll reach your goal step by step. Milestones are micro goals.

Set a time limit!
Define when you want to reach the goal. It is very important, to focus on that date.

Start now!
Don’t procrastinate the beginning of reaching your goal. To get on top of a mountain, you have to climb. To reach your goal, you have to start climbing. But before you climb, you should know how to climb, have the right equipment. Make sure everything is there for you and then start!

Track your success
Make sure, you know every step to the top of the hill.

If you reached your goal, celebrate!
You have done everything to reach that goal, so invite some friends, make a party, cook something very special. By celebrating we make sure, that it’s cool to reach goals.
