I want to improve things I want to reach the year 2100 in good health and shape. That's all well and good, but why? Apart from the fact that it's natural we don't want to die, there has to be something more that pushes me to this goal, right? It sounds really good as the ultimate goal, but I couldn't…

What I learned this year
Some study material

Do something for the first time It's perfectly normal to learn new things, we are even being encouraged (forced even) to go to school. Until we grow up. As soon as you graduate from whatever education you had, you have to stay in that very specific field you studied. Or is that just me? I often get the question from…

In my last post I explained that I have two goals: Live at least past the year 2100 in good health.Help two billion people make sense of “difficult” things, while trying to reach goal 1. I explained why I think having goals is important, in general, but also for myself specifically. Now, the goals I stated for myself might seem…

Photo by Clark Tibbs on Unsplash Why set goals? Goal setting is a hot item. Everybody should have goals in their personal life, in their career and for their loved ones. Unfortunately, along the way, we all lost the (real) reason why you should goals for yourself. And with that I really mean only for yourself. Yes, your boss will…

Why and how I run. The first and I hope also the last post I write about it. Running is hot. Or depending on who you ask cool, mindful, healthy or all of the above. For me it’s just the easiest and cheapest way of working out. And I love running, because I can do it anywhere, I can choose to…

This happens when you go early. You can have a nice view of a soundboard though. And follow the shiny lights along the floor.

Originally posted on Medium on June 16, 2018. I don’t know if this is something Dutch or if this happens everywhere.

While only some of us are lucky enough to live near a beach and can go whenever they…
