Life calendar is a Tim Urban-inspired tool of stoic nihilism for those going through an existential crisis. These squares are the weeks from birth to (probable, taking the average in Europe) death at around 80 years of age:
Thoughts -> topic -> statements and plan -> writing -> revision.
The "5 whys" technique is suitable for both thinking of ideas and describing the user's wishes. Can be used both in a team and alone.
This is a decision-making and planning technique. Suitable for both a team and a single person.
How to choose the best idea? Value in money.
The "Advantages, limitations, unique qualities and overcoming limitations" method is similar to SWOT technique, but more for generating ideas.
You can do the exercise both alone and in a group. The duration is about 15 minutes. Exercise can be similar to meditation, because it is not complicated, has a calming effect.
This is one of the brainstorming (brainstorming) options, where the crowd both generates and evaluates ideas during the game.
Body assault (or "bodystorming" in English) is one of the variants of the Brainstorming technique: a way to come up with new ideas.
Every content creator wants to have a large audience. But how to collect it? Content publishing is not necessarily the solution…
NFTs are not a thing, not an idea, and not rights to a thing. It is a financial instrument.
What's worse than SEO texts? Authors who write so boringly that…
don't be afraid - you don't need legs to walk. Frederic Gros in the book "Philosophy on foot"describes not pacing, but a slow, aimless, but meaningful way of traveling.
Do you want to be satisfied with your life? Stoic philosophy is very similar to Buddhist philosophy - accept and be.
"How to recognize and overcome eating disorders" is the latest book by G. Jankauskienė (and co-authors), published in 2022.
Let me share a technique I dedicate just to you: the writer.
remember your favorite childhood book... What book is it? And imagine: you not only wrote, but also published your book. People read it, enjoy it, memorize it, remember it! Ah, wouldn't that be wonderful?
What is the difference between an expert and a person who is otherwise knowledgeable? The expert is likely to have his own not only verified, but also created way of thinking.
If you can't attract readers for free, then who will buy your book? (Or another piece, as the same applies to other media.)
Romualdas Drakšas: a lawyer (and not just any law, but criminal!), a professor who writes fiction books. I remembered his name because I once read his science fiction diptych "The Man" and I really liked it as a child... So what does Romuald write these days?
Oh, how many note systems have been invented - to-do lists, "Getting things done", Kanban, Planuokis and other ways of writing down. (Now every second influencer sells his own writing, his own planning method.)
Ah, the Internet... It stands on three pillars: scams, pornography and advice on how to live.
"How sad that no one loves me and I don't have a second half...", one person I have in mind at this moment will think sadly.
Let me tell you about a weight loss program - a project, which I worked on for half a year… And purchased by less than 10 buyers…
This is a book about Israeli spies. When reading, it seems like from a movie, but according to the author, these are real stories.
Oh, how many stories, books, movies, series, anime and video games have been created about magical portals. One moment you're living your earthly life, the next you're stepping through a door (or gate), the next you're on another planet.
Micromanagement is a type of management where the manager supervises every action of his team member. The manager knows everything, the manager will explain everything, the manager is responsible for everything.
Discounts are a great way to attract customers. But, you know, buyers (secretly) don't like discounts. Not because discounts are bad - because the product used to be without them.
On the occasion of Kaunas being the European capital of culture - a book about the interwar history of Lithuania in a different way. Not a retelling of events, but these quotes!
"Ah, if only I met the right person... We'd be together, we'd be happy, everything would be better..."
A mentor is a person who will teach you how to achieve your goals.
I have a feeling you haven't heard of this book yet. I would not be surprised - criticism of Lithuanian television shows is not the most frequently discussed topic. And what to say that the circulation of this book is only 400 units...
Confidence is not lying to yourself.
Not everyone can be a hero. Not everyone can be famous. Not everyone can be successful. And it probably won't be you.
Set a goal to, say, run for 30 days in a row? Only managed to run for 10 days? Sad that you didn't reach your goal?
The argument from novelty is another type of chronological snobbery: the claim that what is NEW predates something. Although there is not.
Do you read books, but after a week you don't remember what you read? Believe me, it happens to practically everyone - it's natural.
I will sound blasphemous, but I am honestly convinced: nothing. Despite the fact that reading books is so valued.
I wish living was as easy as thinking about life, dreaming, making lists...
A few days before the day of love for Lithuania, the world celebrates another day of love - Valentine's Day. Probably the most famous day of February, forgetting the one that sometimes occurs at the end of the month. Love. Who doesn't want it? Well, judging by what this Fourteenth has turned into, almost no one needs love anymore. Because love is needed only for people with whom you want to get hot and create a brigade [...]
It is not difficult to recognize narcissists - they constantly brag about their achievements, take pictures, look for "influential friends", people they could be around and, most importantly...
I hope this page is not the first result of your Google search. You've already found tons of answers: seduction techniques and "find someone else" tips. But it's not enough for you...
What are the most popular posts on Facebook? Basically: weddings, beautiful people… And travel. Share a travel photo and you'll get more attention than on your birthday! So it's no wonder there are so many travel freaks - it's so easy to get distracted and forget the problems you should really be dealing with. In 2013, I tried to travel for a whole month. I wanted to travel around my native Kaunas for 30 days in a row […]
Deep in your heart, you probably realize this too. You will not survive on efficiency alone. Without productivity is the rest of life.
What to do if you want to cancel? Want to play video games (or gamble), lie around watching YouTube, scrolling through Facebook and talking shallow nonsense with your friends?
A photo weighing 5 MB on the Internet is madness. So how do you optimize illustration sizes easily and quickly?
A challenge that probably doesn't matter to you at all. Or at least that's what I'm guessing. I tried to be alone for a year. Or rather, without the girls who so often caught my eye, mind, heart and dick. Keep in mind: I also consider this challenge a failure. Why? I just don't know what I got from him and that's it. Although it was quite fun. I provide notes if these [...]
Malcom Gladwell, one of the most famous authors, once presented a principle: The greatest experts usually only become experts after spending at least 10 thousand hours or more with their craft.
Even before I wrote The Lazy Manifesto, I decided to try about 30 different productivity techniques and see which ones would work best for me. Later I wrote "The Lazy Manifesto": my first book about minimalism, the necessity of laziness for our health and productive work. That's basically what productivity techniques are designed for. The Kanban work monitoring system is used in the factory of the car manufacturer Toyota, and about the magic words Lean […]
There are no genes (or at least they are so uncommon that we haven't discovered them) that give someone innate talent.
I find it very difficult to write everyday. Although I work as a writer - I am not able to write morning papers, long articles, long books... For a long time I thought it was a mistake - that I am a bad writer.
It is related. Create and promote, create and persuade, create and sell… But creativity is not the same as marketing.
It's hard because I don't feel like Daniel anymore. I feel different. Different. Old topics are gone... And I feel the pressure. Fear. Loneliness. Caution.
Do you remember your childhood? A day at school? There were always children who got those fantastic treasures before everyone else. Their parents found ways to buy them LEGO, Songoku toys, they got sports bikes and a whole mountain of treasures...
Too many businesses try to start over. Looking at other people's beautiful buttocks, their skirts, panties, checking what's under them...
Smart devices are part of being human - they perform the functions of our memory, reminders, communication and some work.
"Early to bed and early to rise - this is what makes a man healthy, rich and wise." Benjamin Franklin, 18th century. politician Getting up early in my childhood was a big misunderstanding for me. Get up at six in the morning, get dressed with zombie speed, forcefully eat breakfast and prepare for the trip to the sea? Why do my parents torture me so much? Why can't you sleep yet??? But over the past year, my approach […]
It's not a curse. Not a wish. It just is.
Eat that frog - try another productivity, efficiency, technique and become better. Faster, smarter, richer...
Before age was roughly taken, companies like Ford or General Motors used people's time to make a profit.
What to do if you like a person, but you are not sure if she/he likes you back? Here's my proven three-step method:
I haven't used Facebook in over a year. This is what I feel at this moment. Maybe this will also inspire you to stop using Facebook and just delete it.
You do the work - you write on a piece of paper - you put the piece of paper in a pile. Yes, for one year, 2017, i followed every job i did.
What if you could make hundreds of thousands of euros with JUST an idea? I can say that:
My greatest desire is to stop being bored. It has a lot to do with willpower.
I was recently Vipassana in meditation training. There was a lot of talk about that everything comes in waves. It comes, goes, increases, decreases, itches more, itches less, interesting, not interesting, you want to read more what is written here, you don't want to read more what is written here, you want to fix your hair, you don't want to, you want to achieve goals, you don't want to...
How to come up with a good password? DO NOT PUT NUMBERS OR SYMBOLS OF ANY KIND.
…I'm lying. What I'm about to say isn't another self-affirmation that you're a loser that you've been looking for. It's more of a motivation to not stop.
You must have come across such people. Explaining to them that X or Y is literally impossible… Or that Z can easily be done by yourself and here's how… Or that M, L and P are not your area of work… Jthey don't like it!
I smelled your shampoo and my hand melted pleasantly under your neck. I could feel that, finally, I was together with you however… I felt lonely.
You can buy health. Time (amount of work done) too. Attention - no.
I know the feeling. You met such a wonderful person. You went on a few dates. Maybe you even kissed or did this and that more...
You can always just take it and work. Even at this moment... But what if you could work easier, faster and smarter?
Some argue that an investor's greatest asset is time…
Earnings are not what you get from customers.
You know, I'm not going to start with arguments about why veganism is good. I believe that you have already heard enough of these. Well, okay, not a little bit - those vegans are really obnoxious…
I don't even know how cringe would be in Lithuanian - disgust? Cramp? Inner pain? Someone else's (or own) shame? You know that feeling. And maybe that's why it doesn't matter what you call it.
It's simple! Say one thing and do another:
Ah, those guys… Why don't they speak first? Why not come to you?

A clear goal will help you achieve it. I agree with that. However, if you don't know what you want, how can you get it? Accidentally?
I grew up in a healthy family - we always respected nature, my grandfather raised bees (until he got old a few years ago), and my mother kept saying - garbage must be collected! Throwing anywhere is wrong.
I know It happens to me too. I come up with new, really genuinely interesting and good ideas, I start working on these projects...
Appeared for the first time:
Believing and practicing Catholics have something that many Lithuanian freelancers lack. Or rather, they have what is lacking in general for many Lithuanian residents.
It hurts to feel that you (and especially you) are not needed. Because… Well… This is true. There are thousands like you.
Remember when you thought in 1999 that 2019 would be sometime in the far future? You know, when there will be flexible phones, flying cars, and you will be happy, rich, and good for yourself?
There are two types of criticism.

Who is your super hero?
Myself. I understand that no one will do my work for me - just as they will not fulfill my greatest goals. I am the locksmith-welder of my destiny.
Received a question from a cloud girl:
I'm talking today Povilas Petrauskas, who was once a heavy drinker himself. Not a liter of vodka every day, but still destroying your brain. And he tried to quit alcohol twice in his life. Unsuccessfully. Let's hear how he fared in the third.
