Living Life

Executive summary:

  - Get in sync
  - Get your priorities straight
  - Stay in shape

I guess everybody has some internal guidelines according to which they live their lives. I am pretty forgetful, so while I come up with some helpful ideas every now and then, I tend to forget them just as quickly. So, to assist my scatter-minded PhD-riddled brain, I am going to note these down. I hope that, with time, these ideas will converge to a useful, personal hitch-hiker's guide to the absurdly busy and exciting galaxy we live in.


If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favourable.

You can't achieve anything if you don't know what you want, so here are some medium-to-short-term goals I want to achieve:

Sometimes, I wonder whether these criteria are in conflict, but I don't think they are. Even the PhD, which makes me sleep very badly, is something I really enjoy working on.

Enumerating all the reasons why I'm not currently progressing in all of these fields will take too long, so I'd rather focus on some constructive solutions.


  1. Get in sync
  2. Get your priorities straight
  3. Get in shape
