I’ve been secretly working on an online course during the past couple of months (hence my rather scarce activity on the blog lately). As a matter of fact, I’m still working on it. I still have to upload a few lectures, and to add a few case studies, but, other than that, I’m pretty much done. It’s a course on goal setting, and it’s already available on Udemy.com. There’s a little bit of a story to be told about this course, but if you are anxious to see what’s all about, here’s the link:

I’ve been writing about goals, generally speaking, and how can we have more meaningful, fulfilling and attainable goals a lot. Which means I did a lot of trial and error in this area. I went from being obsessed with goals, chasing them and building my self-esteem on top of more and more goals, up to the other extreme, when I completely ditched them, and replaced them with monkeys. At some point, I realized that this experience could be packed in a more meaningful package. In the beginning I thought about a book. I already self-published 6 ebooks, so I kinda know the drill here.
But, since I do love challenges (which, I admit, can be a challenging thing in itself) I decided to take another approach. I decided to make an online course from it. With scripts, filming, video editing and all the stuff. It wasn’t easy. But it was fun. As I said, I’m still uploading content at the moment of writing of this post, but the main part of the course is already available.
I started to work on it in September (after playing around with the idea in my head for a couple of months) and then entered full speed in October. I established (and blowed) a few livelines (I hate the word deadline, that’s why I use “liveline” when it comes to meaningful milestones). But, in the end, I did it. I have lined out all the scripts, I filmed more than 80% of the material and more than 50% of the entire video content is already available. That’s the main reason I’m posting this right now: if you want to get full access to the course right now, then go on and click on the link above. After all the coupons are used, the course will be available only at $69. The coupon above gives you full access to the course for only $29.

Running For My Life - from zero to ultramarathoner
The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”
And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.
Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.
