What does your morning (routine) look like?

giphy

I don't have anything like a morning routine, unless you count "getting out of bed at some point and going to the bathroom to pee". Oh, and checking my phone for stuff that came in overnight. Anything else is chaotic at best.

Blonde, dark brown, slightly greying

AT THE HAIR SALON

6/21

Purpose is:

To wake up in the morning and say to yourself, "If I'm not busy with anything else, I know exactly what I want to do to change the world a bit."

THE SECRET SAUCE OF LIFE

This law should exist:

§

Hypocrisy is unavoidable, but it would be nice to penalise double standards more. 🙂

ABOVE THE LAW

15/21

Complete the following sentences!

Perseverance is a superpower that most people don't understand

Responsibility is a more or less useless word, because everyone defines it differently

Vulnerability is something we crave in others, but are afraid of in ourselves

Gratitude is usually wrapped into unnecessary spiritual mumbo-jumbo, but doesn't need to be

Curiosity is very hard to teach, but incredible if you want to learn

THE MISSING PIECE

20/21

What’s something you have been doing wrong all your life until recently?

Pricing. "Recently" in this case goes back 3-4 years, but considering there are 43 years in total, I still call it recently.

NOTE TO SELF

21/21

How much would you pay yourself per hour?

If I understood how good I was, I'd think I was cheap at the price I charge. But I'm not sure I'd be convinced of my own skill if I wasn't inside my head.

17/21

What are three things you want to learn next?

1. To sing - I've wanted to learn how to do that for years

2. To drive a car - I thought I'd never need to learn how, but it seems I was wrong

3. To stop being so annoying. This one is tricky, though

LEARNING AS A LIFESTYLE

19/21

???

What’s the best question you have ever been asked?

"Would you like yourself?" - I still don't know the answer to that one.

THE RIGHT TO REMAIN THOUGHTFUL

2/21

Which items should people scratch of their bucket list immediately?

1. I'd never tell anyone to scratch anything from their bucket list
2. In fact, I'd instead say that it's impressive how there's an audience for everything
3. And then I'd share that I hated Phantom of the Opera, but that I appreciate many others love it. 🙂

THE UNBUCKET LIST

10/21

Which film role would you like to play?

I think I'd do quite well as Han Solo, in case the original movies were remade.

DREAMCAST

IMDb

7/21

What is it like to be you?

Complex. It's incredibly easy in some ways, as my Privilege-o-Meter is almost maxed out due to my nationality, gender, sexuality, ablebodiedness, etc. But in others, it's not easy at all (massive debt and quite a bit of shadow boxing). Some parts of "being me" people tend to envy - others they wouldn't want for their worst enemy.

WO / MAN IN THE MIRROR

16/21

How can you measure whether an idea is good or bad?

You can't. You can only guess. Experts tend to guess right more often than non-experts, but even they get it wrong sometimes.

FOOLS AND TOOLS

3/21

Transformation is:

Transformation? The process that took you from who you were to who you are.

TRANSFORMATION TRANSCRIBED

11/21

What question would you like to ask your fear?

😱

Why do I need to remember you so often?
