Personal Improvement

Don’t we all want to be a little bit better? This blog was started during my MBA program and continued on through the CFA® program so there is a lot effort and words towards improving your career. I have provided my own thoughts as well as advice from experts.

For a while I was forced to do a lot of self reflection, trying to figure out what really mattered to me and what I wanted to devote my limited time and energy towards. And although I ultimately sunk way too much time into this blog and my official studies, I also read other books, watched movies, saw musicians, even travelled and lived abroad to increase my perspective.

What worked for me, may not work for you. People change over time. Priorities change over time. I’m trying to improve my health and physical fitness once again in the post-COVID world. I still want to read more. I still want to better my career. I still want to improve my guitar playing and make more time for my hobbies and personal interests.

I’m not looking to become a guru, social media influencer or advice columnist, but you can read about the things I’ve done on this blog in an effort to improve myself and if you have questions you can contact me using email or social media. Be warned, I still struggle with personal improvement.

My ongoing job search lately has lead me to do a lot of Googling and a lot of lying in bed unable to sleep, which sometimes leads to me getting up and sitting in front of my computer more. There are a lot of self proclaimed experts online, some of them actually know what they are talking about, some of them just talk a lot. Separating the wheat from the chaff is still a billion dollar problem online, as someone who continues to spend too much time online, here is how I manage my personal social media firehose…

How I lost over 15 kilos in 2015

Friday, January 8th, 2016

I put in the work and I ate less. It isn’t rocket surgery, people make it out to be to be some complicated magical process that requires a guru, a trendy diet, and the perfectly chosen gym outfit. Exercise more and eat less, it is that simple…
