Quick Progress.

Quick Progress.

Second post under 200 words. A quick one. About a quick Progress. Not necessarily is the Progress a slow process. Sometimes it can definitely take a swift, even sudden nature. Then it only takes moments for it to happen. And it can even be a big step in your life.

A couple of days ago I realized that I don’t feel comfortable about the way I reside, that I need a change as soon as possible. From my previous experience, looking for apartments is time-and-energy-demanding obnoxious process. Offers go as they come and it’s hard to find a suitable one – location, style, price. However this time I was so determined that it only took 3 days to find and sign one. It took another 3 days to move all my crap between apartments. I say WOW! Never before it was so quick for me. And this is something new, this is Progress. Open up your mind to new things, be determined!

Here I am sitting in my new apartment, sweet sensation. I felt the need, I did the move, the pay-off is satisfying. Just take the fucking action when you are hesitant but feel like doing something important for yourself.

The beauty of hiking.

The beauty of hiking.

Recently, me and a bunch of my old friends had a nice hiking journey. In fact, we have it as a tradition. Back in the days when we were high school kids we started this habit. We had plenty of time during summer vacations so we thought it’s a wonderful idea to explore the beauty of Slovak nature. Slovakia may not be an industrial giant or too powerful country, but the nature that is on its territory is spectacular. Anyway, this year was an anniversary – 10th expedition since we started trippin’ every summer. As a destination we chose Slovak Paradise¹, a National Park  we visited on our first hike.

Short posts – yes or no?

Short posts – yes or no?

You may have noticed that all posts on my blog are relatively long. I just like to breakdown my thoughts and think them through. It’s a sort of therapy – once you write your thoughts you can see them from completely different angle compared to the viewpoint while they are still in your head.

However, the problem with longer posts is that it takes a lot of time to compose them. At least in my case. Because I am non-native English speaker, it also requires some time to work on editing, choosing correct words, etc. That is the main reason I am not posting regularly, or several times per week. I have ideas, I just do not have enough time to process all of them. Most probably, I will not have more time for my disposal. I guess it is time to start publishing some short posts. And you know what, this is Progress as well! I believe it will help me to express my thoughts in more straightforward way for instance. More benefits will reveal down the road.

Let this be my first post under 200 words, and it will start the series:

Importance of Workout Music.

Importance of Workout Music.

I love music. Even though I cannot produce music, I love listening to music. I mean, today you can just hit a couple of tones and call it modern art. But no, I don’t have skills to give tones a proper form and deliver a track. A skill I always admired, wanted to have, but hated to sit on my butt and practice, thus it was obvious to give up on that dream. Of course, I am not saying never.

Now I want to share how important music is for me and the quality of my workout. I understand that everyone is different and some people just do not listen to any music, but there is one powerful psychological thing about it. And for that sake it is worth a try, or just grabbing the idea and applying it in a different, more suitable, way.

Play on…

Friend, an Ingredient of Progress.

Friend, an Ingredient of Progress.

Lately I was a bit busy. Although, busy is not the best word to describe the state in which my mind happened to be, let’s just put it that way. The result is that no post was published for quite a long time. Whatever, I am doing this for myself mainly and if i don’t feel like writing I will not. Period.

I was stuck in a situation that I was subconsciously creating and was not able to understand how to step out of the circle. Nonetheless, it is already gone. Perhaps, I will write a post about it later, with some time passed so I can have a different view.

Negative things aside. I want to share with you the unbelievable positive energy that I received from a buddy of mine. Fortunately for me he stayed around for almost a week and every single day was special. I can’t precisely tell why, but I surely can feel it.

The meaning of friendship…
