Welcome to my blog
I write on self-growth, productivity, psychology, society, and whatever I want to talk about.
The 6 pillars of my ideal, balanced life
I love many things in life. Why not do all of them ?
For years I tried to understand which activity I would never be tired of doing. By spending so much time on that activity I would eventually be very good at it, if not the best. I was obsessed with specialisation.
The society and social media rewards those who are the best at what they do, through salaries and likes. I wanted that.
I tried lots of activities including sports, music instruments, video making, video game playing, dancing, coding, etc, etc.
After years of experimentation, I finally figured out what’s that fabulous activity to focus on:
I discovered that balancing makes everything enjoyable.
I discovered that I don’t care about the number of likes on social media, nor having the highest payroll.
My ideal day would contain:
- creating: a few but deep work hours, playing music, writing
- exercising: surf, ski, workout, combat sports
- learning: reading a book, practicing a new skill
- socialising: seing friends and meeting new people
- exploring: physical & mental traveling
- resting: because all 5 above are worthless if I’m tired
Some activities join 2 or more of these groups:
- practicing a language with someone groups learning and socialising
- ride a new ski slope groups exercising and exploring
- practicing a song groups creating and learning
I’m building this lifestyle progressively.
I’m on a journey of relative independence from the society:
- fewer but deeper work hours versus regular 9-to-5 praising distractions
- nomad life versus having a fixed home
It’s a journey of carving my own path.
This is hard, but terribly exciting
How about accomplishment ?
These 6 first pillars are the ones I need to have a well balanced life.
But that doesn’t make me fulfilled.
