Wrapping up 2018

Reflections on 2016 and a look forward

Can’t believe it’s been another year. This one was busy and quick. Even though a lot happened somehow I feel like I’ve missed it. This is almost the last day of 2016 and I sit here now, in London and look back to reflect on what happened, what did I achieve and what I can do better in 2017. Work I…

Without a word, next month passes by

It feels like it was just a blink of an eye, yet another month just passed. I’ve promised more frequent updates but I still don’t have enough time to do that. This month I’ve spent more time flying than running… That give me something to think about.

Keeping the fire burning

Sometimes it’s easy to loose the focus. I get it all the time. One week is great, then next one feels like a two steps back. Sometimes good, sometimes hard. What is important, is to keep pushing forward. I mentioned this before. I often don’t work hard enough for what I want to achieve. Trying once…

Slow but steady, February winter edition

Sometimes the journey is slow. Sometimes it’s just feels like you’re in the same place. If you’ve ever felt this way, then welcome. This month was just slow. I mean, it wasn’t nothing.

A journey to minimalism starts in January

So, the first month of 2016 was dedicated to some cleanup, clutter reduction and simplifying. I’ve set a goal, to get rid of one thing for every day and today 31 days passed. Here are the results. Cleanup I ended with reducing much more of digital clutter, but nevertheless, it’s the action that…

Marzec 2015 - raport i przemyślenia

Z lekkim poślizgiem postaram się przeanalizować poprzedni miesiąc. Z końcówką lutego zacząłem w miarę regularne treningi i marzec był pierwszym miesiącem, w którym udało mi się to całkiem dobrze. A więc do dzieła. Statystyki Wg Stravy w marcu zanotowałem: 17 treningów, na których przebiegłem 15…

Niedługo miną dwa lata, od kiedy zaczęła rozwijać się moja pasja związana z fotografią. W ciągu tego okresu zrobiłem parę tysięcy zdjęć, poznając zasad tej sztuki, odkrywając możliwości aparatów i ciągle doskonaląc swoje umiejętności, powoli ucząc się na własnych błędach.
