The scope of the discussion was not to state the […]

the ART of LETTING GO

… about trusting life Few weeks back we went on a canoe tour. I never would have thought, that I will enjoy it so much, but nowadays I can barely wait for the early august canoe tours. It was in the “year of Corona”, that I first participated on such a boat trip. I knew […]

SUCCESS

a siker útja the road to success

SUCCESS … about why goals fail I previously wrote about goals and the specificity required to chart out a strategy around them. This is enough to set them, but it is hardly enough to achieve them. While most spend the beginning of the year planing, setting goals, I like to spend it in retrospect. Why? Because […]
