Motivated: Best Posts of 2014


Another year gone by and another year I almost disappeared from this blog due to an extremely time-consuming obsession; also known as cycling, and too much globetrotting. I was in Europe for seven weeks, Asia for seven weeks and had another amazing year of health, fitness, self-discovery, realization and learnings— it was definitely a dramatic life-changing year for me. I wouldn’t change a thing.

Favorite Posts of 2014:

  1. Cycling can make you feel so alive.
  2. Being healthy means taking care of your body. Have you been incorporating stretching into your routine?
  3. I was able to go on a trip of a life time … while being paid too!
  4. I loved the ‘Ways to be Flawless‘ article I found on Thought Catalog.
  5. Some of the many lessons I learned from fitness.
  6. I went through another annual Bikram’s Yoga phase. If it was cheaper and the studio near my apartment was still opened, I would still be going regularly but convenience is a huge factor when this isn’t an activity I’m obsessed with.
  7. I discovered the benefits of mindfulness and it became a central focus in my daily life.
  8. I still haven’t written about many of my adventures in 2014, but I did leave part of my heart in the Austrian alps.
  9. I became the owner of a beautiful carbon dream-machine.
  10. I am really in love with the entire process of health and fitness.
  11. Cycling ruined my life …but in a good way.
  12. I killed Mount Baker this year, compared to my super-fail first time in 2013.
  13. I finally rode from Vancouver to Whistler and back (twice) and learned so much about cycling and nutrition on those rides.
  14. Cold-weather cycling is finally amongst us and I couldn’t be anymore excited!
  15. I rode the crap out of many of my favorite routes and never got bored of them.
  16. Then I went on a two month bike diet, just as I did the year before.
  17. Have you figured out how to be a happier you?

Happy new year!

My background is in tech but now I am an expert on productivity-hacking, motivation, accountability, coaching, nutrition, and living a happy yet disciplined and committed lifestyle— and I’ve been doing so “effortlessly” for well over 10 years.

After years of studying and applying this skill we call DISCIPLINE, I’ve learned how important it is to be consistent to inspire others through implementing and cultivating good habits.

This is my journal and honestly I write but I rarely proofread. I don’t have time, and I gave up perfection a long time ago. I have been practicing this art of putting my thoughts on paper (or the web) since my mom gave me my first diary when I learned how to write. Just like my life, this journal is not perfect.
