5 ways to still create something reasonable
What do I do if I’m just not able to write something reasonable? What if I have the so-called writer’s block? When the circumstances just don’t fit? When I’m distracted? Here are the things I try to do in such situations (also when writing this article):
1. World off, music on
CTRL + T is the common shortcut to open a new tab in most browsers.
About my loved Moto G 3rd Gen.
Since the beginning of 2016 I have been using the third generation Motorola Moto G. A device that set real standards in this price range at that time and is apparently still suitable to serve as a daily driver today. The first device where I don’t think after one year, I have to buy a new mobile phone again because on the old one all the applications won’t run anymore.
Because the world doesn’t stop too The world doesn’t stop. Not because of this one person who has left the world, tore a deep hole in the lives of some other people.
The other billions of people continue to pursue their professions, doing what they do every day. Every single day.
And when you consider that you may not be the only one in this situation, but this happens daily, perhaps even hourly, this is hardly comforting, but it shows that life goes on.
Unable to say goodbye in time. Goodbye forever. I used to write about what I learned from my experiences (my view of success, what motivates me in the morning or what I learned from oversleeping). Now I’m going to write to process my newer experiences, to cope with the burden and to be able to sleep without puking.
I don’t want to excite pity, or draw any other kind of attention to myself.
On November 2nd. He was just 51.
He left us far too early, at the age of 51. How can a person have so much bad luck?
My sister is 12 years old and half orphan. I am 18.
It hits my mother the hardest. They had so many plans.
He was seriously ill. For a year and a half. But nobody knew that it would happen so fast.
A few days before, we were sitting together in the hospital’s visitor’s room and he drank a hot chocolate.
And about the difference between relaxation and procrastination I am someone, who often preaches things like “never give up”, “go up earlier” or “cut all useless time consuming things out of your life”, so that you use all your time for something useful, that helps you reach your goals and live your life with purpose.
I haven’t changed my mind, since I last wrote a post here on Medium. But I’ve been silent for some days.
How I’ve gotten used to writing a 2-minute article every day
I’ve been writing almost daily for about a year now. Sometimes more regular, sometimes less. Sometimes one subject, sometimes another. Sometimes in German and sometimes in English. But I write. (Almost) every day. And almost always for as long as it takes two minutes to read.
But how does that happen?
How did I manage to get into the routine of writing every day?
And how it is nevertheless possible to achieve your goals Rejection can be hard. Rejection can make us feel that we have done everything wrong, that nobody likes us and that it would be better to disappear. Rejection is a shitty feeling. But everyone experiences this more than once and I think it is important to learn something from the experiences you gain instead of just focusing on your own misery.
My advice to avoid regret later on I write this article because I realized that I have behaved partly wrongly. Like shit. To people I really cared about.
And with people that mean something to me, I don’t mean just any girls I like or other people I look after. I mean the ones that really mean something to me, like my family.
I was selfish. I didn’t want to see them suffer.
And how the experience of death blunted me emotionally Show weakness? Showing that you’re not feeling well? Nowadays, it’s almost like a scandal. We always want to present ourselves from our best side, show how strong we are, not only physically but also mentally. It is not at all fitting for us to show weakness. But showing weakness is a strength in itself.
If you say you’re always feeling top, I assume you’re lying.
