How I quit my 40 hour work week and started doing what I love instead

Why am I doing Welcome to Insight?

For the most part of my adult life I’ve been doing work that I don’t like to do. I’ve let myself get seduced by the quick buck that comes with the 40 hour + work week.

By taking one year off from that kind of life and instead dedicate my time to studying success, I’m hoping for this to change. I’m looking to solve this puzzle and then be able to present a good solution for other people who’s also been seduced. I believe that it’s possible for anyone to live an inspired life.

One year ago me and my wife decided to quit our jobs, sell everything we owned and move from cold Sweden to sunny New Caledonia. I decided that I will take the opportunity to stop doing things that I don’t like and instead do what feels right. At first I found myself falling into old routines. I started to say yes to things that I knew I could do but I didn’t really want to do. Like installing kitchens. I soon became miserable in my new country. I remembered what I had promised myself and so I decided to quit the “installing kitchen” job!

That’s when I started to write this blog. I knew that if my friends back home would find out they would think I was crazy, so I decided to start my new life as… anonymous. That’s why I sign all my posts with “B”. I just want to have a good head start when my family and friends catch on. I’m curious if it’s possible for me to find my own path without all the background noise of my past. I’m trying to find if it’s possible for someone like me to become the director of my my own life. Or is this just a myth?

Throughout my life I’ve had a lot of things that I love to do with my free time. I like playing guitar, singing, photo, film, editing, mixing, writing music and more. But for 40 to 60 hours a week I’ve been helping other people to get rich. I’ve been doing all kinds of jobs, everything from factory work to clerk. I’ve also liked partying, smoking and dating beautiful girls. As you might realize this has put a limit on how much time I can spend on the things that I love to do. On top of all that I’ve been a procrastinator.

Can I defeat my own weaknesses by forcing myself to copy the routines and habits that successful people use? I develop tools to avoid procrastination. You can have a look at them under the tools menu. I’m getting more and more convinced that I am on to something. I both see and feel a difference in my life. I’m losing weight, get up at 4:30 am every morning, I write and I study. I am very impressed by my progress so far. I’m just waiting for it all to fall apart, ha ha!

So today I can only offer you a report of what’s happening on the journey to mastery in my life. In the future I’m hoping to be able to give you a road map so that you could do the same, if you want.
