Hello Interwebs

About motivation and endurance

Hi everyone,

so this is now officially my first blog post. Not sure what else to say other than OMGFINALLYICANNOTBELIEVEIDIDIT.

It has been such an internal struggle and long time in the making to get off my a** and finally start this project :)

I guess this is a perfect first topic to talk about: "Motivation" and "Drive". I know, I know, this has nothing to do with photography - but hey, this is my blog so I can do whatever the... :P

No but seriously - I cannot believe how long this project has been in the making. People constantly talk about things they want to achieve, discuss topics they would like to pursue - but in the end they do absolutely NOTHING. Trust me, I'm talking from experience here and I myself have had plenty of late night emotional breakdowns, wide awake at 2 a.m. in bed, thinking about all the things I want to achieve in my life :D




I believe this is a proper first step to bring my thoughts out into the world and also a good lesson for myself to see if I can keep up my motivation and actually follow through - which by the way is the most important thing after you have started pursuing something new. I don't know the numbers, but it's quite a lot of projects that are neglected after the 8 days. So let's see if this blog still exists come October ;)

So, time to get started and give this website a nice look and - of course - add some of my photography work :) Pretty excited actually about this.

So long

I'm out - Sebastian
