https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCr9-7It7fY Watch this video from Jack Ma. Not only it is the best career advice I have heard but it is also a sincere and profound statement about regrets in life. It made me think about my own career path... How about you? "Before 20 years old: Be a good student but make enough mistakes. Enjoy the ride. Before 30 years old: Follow somebody. Go to a small company. To learn passion and dreams. And learn to do a lot of things. It is not which company you go to but which boss to follow. From 30-40 years: Think about whether you want to work for yourself. Do you want to be an entrepreneur? From 40-50 years: You have to do all the things you are good at. Do not try to jump to a new area. Focus on your strengths. 50-60: Work with young people and invest in them After 60: Spend time for yourself.

As a test to see whether I actually was, I decided to do something out of my comfort zone, that I never thought I could do but that I thought I would really enjoy! So, I have started running 4 months ago. I really couldn't run before: One minute into it and I was out of breath! I was also out of breath after a flight of stairs. I won't go into details in this article of how I have achieved it technically but as a result of beleiving-working on specific personal issues with my coach, I can now run 5K!! 4 months ago, I was really helpless at running and I am dreaming now of running marathons… Nothing is impossible! My other objective was also to reach the state of Flow, which is the ideal state you want to be when you coach! A state of absolute focus, ignoring ego, internal mental interferences and barriers. Your ideal self in a sense. Some can experience it by meditating, painting, singing, playing an instrument, or running! In general, while doing an activity you enjoy greatly and feel immersed in the process with no other external interference. You are then surely at your best at this moment. For a coach, it is about quieting all the noises around and listening attentively to your client, which should in turn [...]
