Happy New Year 2019

Wow, in the blink of an eye, 2018 is over already! I can't believe time has flown so quickly - I thought my sabbatical just started, gosh (I'm still on sabbatical by the way).

Am not in a rush to exit my sabbatical, though it's really fun

  1. Spending time with my kiddos - this is by far the BEST thing that I can experience. Nothing in the world can replace this experience, it's priceless.

  2. Exploring ideas and ventures beyond therapy business, such as in NalcoHealth and exploring Amazon Kindle Publishing beyond stoic philosophy of Seneca the Younger (am still re-reading some of his timeless classics such as on the Shortness Of Life - timeless wisdom.

  3. Spending time reading books like the updated 4-Hour Workweek and Body (Tim Ferriss), Bible (God), Principles (Ray Dalio), Maverick (Ricardo Semler) and others.

I have my wife to thank for allowing me to take a sabbatical like this to detox and relax and renew my heart and mind for the next phase of my life.

I've also been doing some diet and intermittent fasting experiments on top of my Slow Carb Diet (SCD) that started some time in 17th of November 2018. More on that in a separate article.

what i'm gonna do in 2019

I'll continue spending time with kiddos and loved ones - this is not negotiable - it's too precious not to do or to delay this. Spending time with them is awesomely precious, and time flies by just too quickly!

I LOVE WRITING. That goes the same for self publishing too, naturally.

Other than the stuff I've published on Wisdom On Seneca on stoic philosophy, I'm already working on a new Amazon Kindle Book that I'm experimenting on, as beginning of my publishing adventure following my Amazon Kindle Publishing training course that I went on recently on 1st and 2nd December 2018.
