All that can be made into personal development, from thoughts to hardware, from coaching to meditation.

Suspended Disbelief

One of the perks of running a community is that you get exposed to a lot of new stuff on a regular basis. Over the last year I created – more or less without really wanting it – a community called Open Connect. If you read my blog regularly you already know quite a lot […]

How To Build An Online Community

What follows is a rather detailed breakdown of one of my most rewarding experiences as a digital nomad: namely, creating a real life community behind the Open Connect concept. If you want to know how to transform a personal, enriching experience, into a social experiment, if you love working from coffee shops or if you […]

77 Things To Do Just Because You Can

Every once in a while I get the urge to write a big list blog post, a list of 50, or 77, or even 100 items on some topic. It may be bucket list ideas, or just ways to start fresh. Whatever the topic, I have to tell you that I really enjoy doing these. […]

I love playing pool. Like in pool billiards, you know. Back when I was a student, pool was just entering Romania, as a new and somehow exotic pastime. There was an inflation of places where you could learn and play. Even in the student campuses there were at least 4-5 tables, many of them taken […]

I’m Not Doing Much Lately, I Mostly Am

When people were asking me what I do for a living, I used to give this answer: “Well, I do whatever I can to avoid a 9 to 5 job”. In other words, I used to be an entrepreneur, trying to put my ideas into practice while still being the master of my own time. […]

“Do every day at least on thing that scares the shit out of you.” I think I heard this a thousand times by now. And, to some extent, I’m religiously following it up. Meaning I do try to do every day at least on thing that scares the shit out of me. From this series, […]

Wizardry And Other Kinky Stuff

Posted on Jun 2, 2013 in Personal DevelopmentRunning by

The other day I took on a pair of shoes I didn’t wear for at least 2 years. It was a pair of sport shoes, not quite suitable for running, but still pretty much wearable on a spring / summer day. Then I took my regular walk, going to the park where I usually run. […]
