#1 "A Day in a Week" - February 7, 2022 - February 13, 2022. To stay or not to stay?

Updated: May 1, 2022

The finish of a book, in this week's case 2 books. Job opportunities and the search for anything but this.

Sometimes a single quote can randomly appear on your new tab on Google Chrome, and you say to yourself, damn, that sums up my week.


I'm going to use those blog posts as an alternative to journaling, and I will try to make them super short, both to myself and the one potential reader from a Galaxy far, far away.


*******************************************************************************************************************

The thing is that I was in search of a job and in the process of reading Tribe of mentor by Tim Ferriss. That turned out to be a good combination.

I took the NO's with ease, and I said NO to any YES, that I got for all the positions that I got a call; or an interview back.


Did I apply as a Data Analyst in 30 firms? Yes!

Did I want to apply as A Data Analyst in 30 firms? No!

Were the positions well paid? 1000$ per month, NO! (the above-average salary in Bulgaria, 2022)

So, why was I happy with all the NO's, and why did I turn down all the Yeses?

To answer this, one should know me, but I assume you don't. In short, I do not dream of working 9 to 6, five days a week, so that I could afford to pay rent or mortgage for 50 years.


In second short: after listening to so many podcasts" The Tim Ferriss Show, Tom Bilyeu, Tony Robbins, and many more, it turned out that the majority of people who are happy in life were in my place many years ago, and when you see that one person can live on his terms, and second, and a hundred, and a thousand, you come to realize that life has much to offer if you dare to jump into the unpaved roads.

The problem is that with one mediocre average solution to a problem, you open the door of a thousand issues that are waiting for you around the corner shortly.

If we reverse that, a bold, brave and analytical solution that will cause you discomfort and even pain today and in the near future might hold the key for life-lasting success in the long term, and it might even teach you to be grateful for the more challenging today.

I mentioned two books in the beginning. I won't get into the books; anyone who wishes can research the books or view the 10-minute highlights on the countless YouTube videos out there.

I will simply mention the two books I could read/listen to this week and might or might not share a few quotes from the books.

Note: It was a pure chance that I could listen to 2 books in a week, I usually listen to one book per month or two, and the other time I am mainly on a variety of podcasts.

  1. Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferris

skyboy46 books tribe of mentors

"Often, all that stands between you and what you want is a better set of questions.

Timothy Ferriss, Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World

"Don't do things that you know are morally wrong. Not because someone is watching, but because you are. Self-esteem is just the reputation that you have with yourself. You'll always know."

Timothy Ferriss, Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World

"Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued. . . . Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it." —Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning"

skyboy46 books to read man search for meaning

That is the second book I finished this week. I will be rereading it again because I think each reader must feel the emotion while going page by page, especially the book's first half.


"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."

Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."

Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning


"Those who have a 'why' to live can bear with almost any 'how'."

Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

"No man should judge unless he asks himself in absolute honesty whether in a similar situation he might not have done the same."

Viktor Emil Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

GLOBAL IMPACT - BECAUSE WE NEED SOMETHING POSITIVE ECH WEEK

I want to highlight some good positive news that happened recently. We, as humans, rarely focus on the positive I think it will be a good idea if we focus on some of the not so ugly things on our planet. One might even find them fascinating and charging.

Note: Those were just short highlights/headlines that I found to grab my attention. If any headlines get your attention, links will be provided for each headline.


*******************************************************************************************************************

To end a seven-day week in a single Sunday post wasn't a success, but one thing is sure.

I have a 'why', and I will find my way to 'how.'

Keep on Rising,
