Waiters or Doers

The funny fact is that everything created in this world was made by people. More precisely people like us, maybe smarter, perhaps more experienced, but they started at one moment when they were non-experienced and stupid.

It’s not a wrong fact to understand that you know less than someone. In the beginning, you can be upset, but this should be a motivation. The best is to compare yourself with you yesterday, or the last week, month, year. Its a competition between you and you. Other people should be an example for you that if you work, study and train you could achieve the same. So in this situation why we separate people into waiters and doers?

In my opinion, the doers understand the fact that the only measure it’s yours, and you should compete with yourself. They will measure their time and appreciate each effort as an act of obtaining something or procrastinating.

The waiters, on the other part, they blame others for their mistakes without being willing to learn and understand where is the opportunity.

Another funny fact is that we play both games. There is no clean ”doer” or ”waiter” we wear both hats. Important is to align your ”doer” personality with your priority list and your ”waiter” with your holidays time.

Please be conscious that you can choose and play the game you want.

Morning routines

I had read that the way you start your day is fundamental. It gives you power, direction, energy and focuses on achieving what you want.

In the last five years, I tried many to do lists and self-management techniques, and they helped me to achieve good results, but for greatness, I fell that I need something different. The paradox is that the only person that can stop me from making my dreams come true is me. The way it blocks me is because of the way I am.

We have a way to behave in this world, and the fact is that nobody taught us how to understand and push forward our strong side. For greatness, I realized that the most important is how I behave each day, what makes me energic, motivated, happy, focused and confident.

So, for me now is essential keep doing more of what makes me happy.

Be with people that I care, to help those that are in need, super-serve people I work with, read daily, move my body the way I feel, travel and discover the world, live personal commitments as often as I can, make this world a better place.

Books of 2017

In 2017 I was lazy and I read only a few books.

For me, those books were very important in all different forms. I had a lot of questions about stretching, anatomy, physical conditioning, body limits, forms of aggression, how to control bad energy, how to deal and meet your dark side, how to choose a career, how to master words, personal efficiency.

I still have more questions that I want to find answers and I will. No matter what, I understand more and more that the force is intrinsic, that we have a great power in our control and we don’t even understand how powerful we can be. I was amazed when I felt how powerful our brain it is. That the only limitations are our beliefs and knowledge. Our life, body, and brain are like an entire solar system that we need to research and discover. Take courage to start your self-discovery journey.

My 2017 books are:

  1. Carl Jung – Memories, Dreams, Reflections. Autobiography
  2. Steven Pressfield – The War of Art
  3. Coach Christopher Sommer – Building Te Gymnastic Body
  4. Arnold G. Nelson – Stretching Anatomy
  5. Bruce Lee – The Art of Expressing The Human Body
  6. Stephen R. Covey – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. reading again
  7. Dorian Furtună – Homo Agressivus, Why wars never stops

Errors of 2017

2017 was a long year for me. I quit my job after I hated doing marketing. I started learning design. Tried me in a new domain, as a business trainer. 10 months later I still have good results. For few months I was a freelancer working from home. My girlfriend was complaining that I will become a home guy. 😀 I get a new job in a tech company and fall in love again with marketing because of a great team. I pursue my dreams and push me thinking about how to plan time more efficiently. I did a lot of mistakes but finally, all of them have brought me where I’m now. Doing marketing, design, teaching, and coaching, trying to write more often on my blog. I have a few more projects to come, but I need 2 or 3 months to realize them.

Some of biggest errors are:

  • I was afraid to quit my job.
  • Because of a bad team, I started to hate what I did.
  • I failed to plan my time efficiently when I had a lot of it.
  • I trained few times even if I had a lot of free time.
  • I failed to remember that motivation is an intrinsic force.
  • I failed to speak up what I want and what I thought.
  • I read few books.
  • I lost myself because of too many critics of my ex-bosses. Even a good professional can become a poor performer if his boss tells him consistently that he isn’t good enough.
  • I forgot to celebrate myself and my small successes.

I will not complain I learned a lot from my mistakes and I’m grateful to the people that pushed me and made me grown up. Many thanks to everyone.
