Another not so super good night. The loud party bass noise in the hotel or the underground discotheque was an obstacle for a calm sleep. That’s how I got up. I pushed myself to the breakfast table, then a few minutes of sun and off to the day job - a five-hours session. I then caught up with sleep (4 hours) in the afternoon and it was like heaven…
…Yes, there was the cleaning lady who interrupted my sleep twice but the overall calm was awesome. That was the recovery sleep that had the big impact on my health. I like that kind of sleep the most!
I let dinner follow eating at a Libanese place directly at Agadir’s Marina (145 MAD for a shrimp soup, Falafel and a beer which is around 13 EUR). Normally, I don’t eat outside or I try get something for to-go but this time I rewarded myself.
In the open air restaurant I also got the chance to continue reading Amber Rae’s „Choose Wonder Over Worry“ (I can identify with her struggle - thanks for being vulnerable, open, direct, honest, transparent). It’s the only book I’m having with me for my 4 weeks of traveling and working. Accordingly, I can dive into it.
For whatever reason was I thinking about living the life of a Buddhist monk. It’s not the first time that I thought but the more I think about the less meaningful I find the Western world’s ideals. It’s boring and valueless. Why doing a kind of work that adds no value to the world? Why having a career in a company you don’t care about? What is the meaning of all that? Why work your ass off for a thing you don’t give a shit about?…
…For power, money, reputation? This whole Western game is slapstick, or as a new friend said „a caricature“ referring to the USA as the „prime example“ for what the Western world stands for.
If a thing a has no meaning to you, do not do it. Don’t do meaningless shit because shit is what you flush down the toilet.
A final day job session and financial orga stuff followed. And that was the end of the day.
Tomorrow, I’ll have my sabbatical for a week. My favorite time! It means I’m taking one week off from the day job and dedicate 7 days only to things that I really want to do: in this case studiolist.io.
Thanks for reading.
I appreciate you.
This was day 10 of 120, I’m validating my 👷♂️ startup https://studiolist.io within 4 months while traveling and working (day job, voiceover). If there’s no market validation until Jun 1, 2019 the startup 🧟♂️ dies.
