Human. Being

It took me months to have the time to write again, and every time I want to write about marketing, digital or e-commerce the chemistry of my brain says: Do it on LinkedIn. 

So, deal with it.

When I was a kid, I was labelled "bad boy" for many reasons, and i wouldn't disagree with them.  I scared the hell out of my parents when i jumped from the first floor to our garden because they told me "You don't have the courage".  It was not a good idea, though. 

We all have a tendency to lose touch with what we loved as a child. Something about the social pressures of adolescence and professional pressures of young adulthood squeezes the passion out of us. We’re taught that the only reason to do something is if we’re somehow rewarded for it.

I used to build things, I used to dismantle things and re-build them again, it was a passion, Not because I wanted to impress my parents or teachers. But for the sheer joy of it. But I stopped for some time and I don't remember why!

Until I faced the reality and took the decision to build things online. It was absolutely the simplest thing to do. I start to read more, attend workshops, meet people do the same thing, and it worked.

We all were passionate about something, and we stopped doing it because of many reasons, but are you pursuing what do you really want in life? 

Finding the "WHY" of your life is much more important than anything else, during the journey of finding the "WHY" expect to eat your favourite flavour of shit sandwich. 

For many of us, the enemy is just old-fashioned complacency. We get into our routines. We distract ourselves. The couch is comfortable. The food is good. And nothing new happens. But if you had one more year to live what would you do?

I will tell my little dirty secret, it takes courage to find the "why".
So, do you have the courage?
