How do you see yourself in 10 years?

After listening to an audiobook, one deep question stuck in my mind:

What DO you want?

Will, by Will Smith

This was a cornerstone moment for his carreer, as it was the moment when he verbalised what he only thought in the past – becoming teh biggest movie star in the world. This guided his actions moving forward.

I journeyed through a lot of books beyond that point peaking with the reading of a classical psychology book I had in my Kindle for some years now, and this one really sang to me: Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

I took it slowly, in small chunks, building bit-by-bit the components I longed to have in my life, and getting in the flow more often was one of the identified missing pieces.

Creating a work routine really helped more easily achieve that state.

After I’ve proactively cleared 2 hours of my calendar the day (or week) before, the routine I’m going through consists of:

  • Clean my office
  • Refill my bottle of water
  • Daily planning (I do it in AkiFlow)
  • Close distracting apps (Email, Slack)
  • Put the phone in a drawer on Do Not Disturb
  • Breathe in :) and go.

The answer to the burning question

Making life a continuous flow experience, keep connecting the dots for improving by a little bit every day really helps in unlocking movement in the direction you want to go in.

I realized that I’m really happy and I love my life now and and so 10 years I want to be really happy and love my life, and I don’t care much of how that looks like.

Improving every day is what I want.
