Do too many and you fail.

That’s me. I do too many. I do ride my bike for money and I do run ~5 blogs on passions and no money. But riding a bike is a passion too, right?

A hero of mine once told me in the middle of a conference, while I was speaking about the way I manage my two very-very different blogs and teams, that doing too many things at once will make me fail.

Although he is one of the persons I most admire, I thought: “No way, I live by doing tons of different stuff. I’d get bored fast if I’d work only with one of my passions and not with more simultaneously!”.

Almost 6 months later I officially do more stuff at once that I’ve ever done before. I started an NGO, I started a bike courier company, I run a team of ~25 people that are so fucking cool, I’m trying to book 4 different conference rooms in 4 different hotels in 4 different big cities in Romania (so I can make a week full of workshops though this country), I’m preparing a “Good bye 2010” BikeWalk with people riding on bikes while being dressed up in Halloween costumes (yup, this is an old dream of mine) and whatever, many more.

Aaaand… today… I failed. Although all I do is based on passions I feel like running to Russia or whatever strange country for a month or two and hide!

But tomorrow’s a new day. And I’ll try and make the best out of it, just as usual. :)

    Dap, dupa ce am invatat ca in 99% dintre cazuri sa nu renunti e cea mai buna chestie pe care o pot face, am mai invatat una tare. Ca in 1% dintre cazuri cea mai desteapta chestie pe care o poti face este sa renunti. :)

    Mare parte din lucrurile misto pe care le-am realizat in viata au fost facute fiindca am stiut sa renunt la timp la altele. Si da, e greu sa stii cand sa te incapatanezi si sa nu renunti si cand sa zici “stop, e prea mult”. Dar cred ca e unul dintre lucrurile care fac diferenta intre cei care reusesc si cei care nu. A sti cand sa alegi ce.

    As vrea sa iti spun ceva, dar nu stiu cum sa exprim. Ideea principala este: I trust you Ariel :).

    Te invidiez pentru ca esti atat de bun in tot ce faci. Acum mi-am dat seama de ce. Esti foarte bun pentru ca faci numai ce-ti place :).

    Keep walking. Everything will be just fine >:D<

    Numai vezi sa nu Keep Walking with Johnny Walker…ca atunci e de rau si ametesti.

    Bafta multa in tot ce ti-ai propus si, ca sa fiu in ton cu post-ul tau, break a leg! :)
