The Useful Art Of Making Effective Plans, And How It Can Help You Achieve Your Goals.

Thinking, Organization, Ability to “foresee” the future.
These are all needed and useful things you should take in consideration when making a plan.

But becoming a careful planner can serve you in multiple ways.

Let me give you some pointers on HOW to formulate a good plan.

Before we begin though, we need to dispel a Myth.
And that is that planning it’s something accessible only to geniuses or high-IQ freaks – It’s not.

Even your average Joe it’s capable of mindblowing feats, if he only sets his mind to it.

So, what do you need to be able to make a good, effective Plan?

1) PURPOSEFUL THINKING

I’ve just came up with this term – cool right? Purposeful Thinking it’s divided in two areas : Brainstorming & Analyzing.

Brainstorming it’s pretty self-explanatory,
Either with others or yourself is the discussion to produce new ideas or solve problems.


Analyzing includes : The Pros & Cons of that specific thought\idea, the efficiency of it. (Is it doable? does it costs me much resources, aka time, money, endeavor – what do i gain or lose from it, how can you tackle potential problems? ecc…)

Ask yourself this:

WHAT ARE THE STEPS NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THE END GOAL?

And write ’em down. IT’S CRUCIAL.

The Alignment with your goals: Is it something that naturally flows for you and the place you want to reach? this may be a little vague but hear me out,

It’s those little things and details that make you say: “That’s exactly how i imagined for it to go” basically, the compatibility with YOUR SITUATION In relation to your Goal.

2) POSSIBLY, A TEAM

While it’s COMPLETELY POSSIBLE to achieve things on your own,

ESPECIALLY For bigger goals, having a group of carefully selected people, it’s advised.

These people MUST :

  • BE COMPLETELY ALIGNED AND INVESTED WITH YOUR VISION.
  • Be Trustworthy individuals (You don’t want snitches, backstabbers or people who lack values or morals)
  • Be specialized in something. (Variety makes good teams – You need unique individuals that bring in some VALUE that’ll help long-term.)
  • Not be fazed by hardships and challenges – aka they need to be tough.
  • NOT be toxic\negative people (they complain, bring others down, they see problems and not solutions, ecc..)

3) ACTION.

Too much thinking can be good or bad.

Thinking needs to be coupled with Action,
You can’t think of things and expect to manifest themselves, period 😀

You need to put in act all that careful thinking – hard work, perseverance, MOMENTUM & SPEED.

Once your plan is formulated it’s time to execute the “steps” that i previously mentioned – in coordination with your team, or alone.

Having a map that tells you where to go is great, but if you do not actually walk it’s useless right?

So do whatever you need to do to reach the next step, you should have already in mind the sequence of actions you’ll take, some examples\ideas you could use:

  • Make powerful connections.
  • Do paperwork/grinding stuff (contacting clients, putting in “the work” needeed for a specific business or whatever)
  • Gain Useful Assets.
  • Gain support from people.
  • Invest money in high ROI stuff (Return on investment) so things that benefit you long-term ecc…

Take care.

3 Manly Things You Can Do To Feel Amazing AND More Masculine Right Away.

Sometimes, as Men, we feel the urge to dip and engage into old-fashioned masculine “rituals” that can renew our spark-so to say- and can let us feel all those good emotions, and why not, at the same time, to build and strengthen the bonds with our male brothers. Or hell! even just experience some wholesome masculine activities.

Here I list a few things you should DEFINITELY try when you want to express yourself as a MAN and\or relax.

  1. HAVE SOME ALONE TIME IN NATURE

Spending some time alone in nature can really help you relax and recollect your thoughts – you can walk and literally “lose yourself” (which is a very manly thing to do) without really losing yourself though, and why not – you could even get a fire going and cook some crunchy bacon on it or a steak, topping it all with some nice black coffee!

Nature it’s always the way to go when you’re in need to reconnect with your manly side. After all, that’s where we came from!

2. CREATE SOMETHING.

Men ARE builders, creators.
So it makes sense that we feel connected the most when bringing something into existence,

It can be anything, really:

  • Craft a Hut\ something where you can store all of your tools.
  • Make some furniture for your home.
  • Write a Poem or a Novel.
  • Make a Videogame!
  • Paint something.

The possibilities are ENDLESS. In short, be creative!

3. GIVE ATTENTION TO YOUR LOVED ONES.

This.

Caring and looking out for the people who matters most in your life it’s one of the most manliest thing you could do.

Spend some time with your Parents, take them out to a fair and have fun eating all kinds of food!

Play with your kids!

Reach out to your friends and do something together, or just check on them!

Have fun\tease your Wife\GF into something “spicy” ;D


Build anticipation with her at the start of the day, give her some intense and sexy looks without giving out your intentions.

Lead Her into bold and new things – she’ll love you taking the lead.

And sprinkle it with a little of romance on top.

AND I’LL MAKE SURE TO DO MORE OF THESE.

Take care!

Gratitude And its Jewels.

Sometimes, or a lot of times I should say, I find myself in deep thought – the kind of thinking in which you’re not satisfied until you’ve explored every single facet of that thought, its pros & cons, its consequences, the impact that may have if you actually carried on with following through with that thought. That’s how i “met” gratitude.

But what is gratitude?

I think that gratitude is not just a feeling, not something you can get instantly like anger, joy, and happiness. Instead, it’s… A state of being.

Something that you can only discover day by day as you continuously move through life by being grateful and giving thanks:

For the air you breathe,

For the food you eat,

For the pain you feel,

For the chance you’ve been given to LIVE.

Those are just some examples, but you can be grateful for whatever you want really, for your enriching relationships and the people that loves you, for the material possessions that are helping you to live life with more comfort…the possibilities are endless, you can find gratitude everywhere – you just have to be still and…actually look for it, feel it, wait for the feeling to manifest, don’t force it because it will happen naturally.

What if all these things that you take for granted suddenly disappeared from your life- how would you feel? wouldn’t you rather feel at peace with everything around you?

I know I do.

The gifts of gratitude are very concrete yet very abstract in my opinion. At times gratitude won’t make itself visible until you’ve lost something very valuable to you, even. Only then you will understand. But just losing something won’t let you experience it, you must couple the loss you feel with the feeling and decision to Start over and try searching for it, especially if you just came out of a difficult situation.

Then, in the end, after you’ve been through all this and finally started giving value to everything important in your life, only THEN those gifts will appear, you will be at peace with yourself and everything that surrounds you, you will have a new outlook on life- and the problems that before seemed daunting and caused you anxiety or trouble will seem trivial and funny! and these are only minor effects that gratitude will cast upon you.

BUT...

You must take the lifelong effort of searching, maintaining and expressing that feeling NO MATTER WHAT.


In a way that someday will become who you are:

Truly grateful.
