Summer is here, and while I welcome it with open arms (I love the sea!), it also brings a general slowdown to business. Here’s a good article on how you can beat the summer slowdown. It’s packed with useful tips which I think you’ll find interesting. Do you use any of these tactics?
Today I came across a really fun infographic about Neil Patel. It was designed by FATDigital and they are calling it a biographic, which is a nice term, would love to see a few more biographics every now and then. Enjoy!
Another week gone, so it’s time for my weekly update of my fitness challenge.
Here is this week’s table.
|Week 4||Week 5||Week 6|
I must admit that these last two weeks were not the best, I lost focus on my diet and ate some unhealthy food at times. Since I had to train at different times than my trainer, I also lost out on that motivation and charge that he gives me, not to mention the spotting assistance that helps me lift more weight in a controlled manner.
I also felt that some changes were needed in my diet, as I was constantly feeling hungry. I’m going to incorporate more food but of course keep it restricted to high protein stuff. I am looking for a balance of training and eating that I can sustain on a long-term, so feeling hungry all the time is not sustainable at all, I’ll end up binging on food at times when my resolve weakens. So hopefully, eating more food in a controlled manner will do away with the hunger and make me less prone to quick fixes that usually involve unhealthy food.
On a more positive note, I do continue to feel stronger, and I’ve managed to do some yoga positions which I hadn’t been able to do before. My body is definitely becoming more balanced, the core is getting batter and flexibility has improved.
Having bootstrapped all my business ventures to date, I lately had a curiosity to find out exactly how startup funding works. Luckily, I found this great infographic which really made the whole concept very easy to understand. I’m considering getting some funding for a particular idea I have, and this infographic helped me see the big picture.
I’m currently enjoying Malta but I’m already thinking of where to go to next Winter.
After our excellent experience in Thailand, one option is to repeat that and maybe explore some more Asian countries.
The other option I’m considering, and towards which I’m leaning, is to do some countries in central and south America. Hottest on my list are Argentina and Mexico, with a visit to Chile also on the cards.
I’ve been reading many good things about Mexico for digital nomads, while Argentina does look a bit expensive for a long stay. Time to check some flights and accommodation options.
Anyone has thoughts? Please feel free to share…
