Being Comfortable Making Less Money

Being Comfortable Making Less Money

Aziz Ansari isn’t really my preference for comedy but this one bit about Frank Ocean on how he managed to work on projects he like really hit home. I’ve been working up to the point where my wife keep suggesting me to take some time off. Heck, even co-worker told me...

A Reason for Mechanical Watch

A Reason for Mechanical Watch

Doing begins by believing

I just realize this recently: I tend to do something if I think it is possible. If i don’t think it is possible, i’ll keep a backlog of it but i’ll probably won’t do it anytime soon. Just keeping it in the horizon - not sure when i’ll do it. A very clear example for...

New Macbook Powered by M1 Chip

New Macbook Powered by M1 Chip
