Describing myself in three words? Analytical, structured and calm.


My Background

When I was younger, I used to play video games for 8 hours (on average!) every single day! You name it and I’ve played it.

They created a subjective reality in which I could escape the miserable life I was leading. Over time, playing those time wasting games took a heavy toll on me. (See zombie-mode picture)

I like this picture, it reminds me where I’ve come from.

I was alone, depressed, unhealthy and by all standards unfulfilled. Until one day, I decided I had enough and it was time to actually start taking control of my life. Actually manning up and being responsible for where I was going in life. From that day on, I’ve sworn to myself that I’d never be the same, weak person again and that’s where my journey really started. This was late 2013.

I started following role models like Owen Cook, Elliott Hulse and Greg Plitt (✞) to discover what kind of man I wanted to become.

I started reading books, exercising more, going out to nightclubs, meeting women and exploring all the interests my mind had to offer.

Life felt limitless.

And I truly believe that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Staying engaged in life at all costs. Pursuing greatness in all areas of your life

In this blog I give advice on your mindset, health, money, relationships and how to deal with problems as they come along to maximize life quality. I also (try to) do a review of my life every 3 months. I mostly fail horribly at this. here’s an overview;

I don’t pretend to know all the secrets to the universe – No-one really does. I’m just giving my perception on the world as I see fit. Hoping to make some impact with my ideas. (I’ve kinda grown fond of writing as well lately)

Things I find important whilst blogging are openness & practicality.

The values I stand for are;

  • Strength 
  • Intelligence
  • Morality
  • Kindness 
  • Calmness

Current

Currently I spend most of my time in working fulltime as a web-developer and am currently working on a Netflix-alike website. On the side I blog, and build up my side-company TrueTech (webdesign). My non-work time is spend in playing strategic boardgames, meeting up with close friends, going to the gym and reading.
