A general glimpse first, read this.
I believe one of the meanings of life is self-discovery, and here are my findings so far:
What do I enjoy doing
Learning by getting my hand dirty
Crafting work and life, but with LESS
Sharing unconventional things or hacks
What do I dislike
Noise - Liars, talkers, fakers, posters
Being told what to do or being taken for granted
What am I good at?
Fast learner, basically anything that I am curious about.
Exceptionally calm in urgent situations, I find those moments thrilling.
Cutting out noise and finding hidden gems - I believe good stuff is mostly low-key.
But like all things always comes with weakness 🤓️
Impatience with incompetent/low efficiency
Focus too much on details
What do I value the most
Freedom, self-sufficient, honesty
What do I care
I do not practically care about lots of things most people care about, but here is mine:
- financial independence
- freedom to learn and explore
- peace of mind
- intellectual conversations
Part of the reason why I am trying to write in English is that I value intellectual freedom too, but writing in Chinese subconsciously makes me self-censored, and I do not like it.
I don't have any problems with people doing different things or being stupid ( I respect everyone's choices) as long as these things don't bother me.
I don't like to hear people complaining without the intention of actually solving the problems; I'd solve them ASAP; otherwise, I could not sleep well at night.
I don't follow trends or whatever is the newest hot, I only follow my own curiosity.
My Understanding of the Meaning of life
I believe we come here to explore / play ( work is a form of play, too ), not be a slave.
To experience what life could offer, see what is possible in ourselves (self-expression, which leads to creative work ) and with others. (deep connection, intimacy, love )
☕️ Current routine
I don't strictly schedule every day; that's the point of being free, right?
But here is roughly what it looks like:
8/9 am: wake up, then listen to podcasts or do some thinking
10 am: get up, shower, breakfast, reading/writing
12:30 pm: a little walk for some sunlight
1 pm: lunch, have a look around2 pm: do some quick work
2 pm: explore whatever interests me
7 pm: dinner
8 pm: read books/ movies / writing
11 pm: listen to podcasts mostly
12:30 am: sleep
( Recently, I got into biohacking, I guess I will adjust it slowly )
Every day is a play day, and I like to solve 1-2 small problems.
Phones are muted 24/7
Love listening to Turkish music when writing:p
Proudest thing I have done so far
1. Learned English on my own
2. Built everything from scratch: blog, business, community, and more coming
3. Navigated myself from China into the real world, with lots of learning and unlearning
4. Set down in a non-English-speaking country (Turkey) during the pandemic
and here is a collection of weird thoughts of mine.
