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:
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…
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 [...]
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 […]
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 [...]
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 […]
"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 […]
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.
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 know It happens to me too. I come up with new, really genuinely interesting and good ideas, I start working on these projects...
Wonderful summer without Facebook years (I will tell you about which one and why I liked it so much here) found an idea that stuck:
A challenge for you!
A month without internet. I experienced them already three and they are different every time. In the first year I discovered my family, in the second year - books. The third time is your relationship with your relationship.
Goal of the day: 1439 words. Written: 888.
Goal of the day: 1497 words. Written: 179.
Sometimes I wonder at my impurity. Looks like I'm setting myself a challenge, it's cool... And I completely forget about it!? I've already told you about some of my writing challenges, but I haven't told you exactly how I felt on those days.
Goal of the day: 1290 words. Written: 479.
Goal of the day: 649 words. Written: 458.
Phew! And apparently that's it. I'm done. After going through paper and electronic notebooks, I discovered what drafts and texts I had written, corrected and added to these, trying not to spoil too much the style of the time, and now I present them to you.
Holy cow. And then I wrote even more!? Yep, it turns out. It's been a long time since I wrote every day, but I still wrote.
And then I was still writing. Here are some more updated texts from the archives. Where I could - I left the style so that you can see the difference with the current texts.
When I started the daily writing challenge for the third time, I set myself a goal of increasing my word count only after completing seven days with a lower limit. Yesterday, I shared the first draft of the revised, rewritten and updated texts part of.
And then yet there were attempts to write in December. After finishing the draft of the first short story, I tried to get back to writing more regularly. I didn't do very well.
Goal of the day: 383 words. Written: 421.
Goal of the day: 299 words. Written: 448.
Goal of the day: 281 words. Written: 325.
Goal of the day: 279 words. Written: 396.
Goal of the day: 273 words. Written: 275.
Goal of the day: 257 words. Written: 340.
And then, after it failed month without delay, in August 2014 I set myself a challenge every day for a month to travel. First to Turkey, then to Lithuania.
Goal of the day: 135 words. Written: 421.
Goal of the day: 124 words. Written: 743. "Slibinus" was photographed by: Linas Marcisauskas.
When I started writing more than five years ago, my skills were so good that I used to write the word "thank you" as "thank you", it took me half a day to write a paragraph, and almost every sentence ended with 🙂 and similar emoticons.
As I mentioned earlier, my The challenge of simplicity started a while ago. Here is an attempt to count all my belongings in 2015, when I was still living with my parents.
