In my previous post, I wrote that appreciating life is the starting point to optimizing it. If you appreciate your life, you will want to optimize it. You will want to make the most out of it. But how do we optimize our lives? What are the aspects that we need to optimize? Well, there are different ways to look at it, but my preferred way is to look at life as it consists of five aspects:
As you know, the name of this blog is Life Optimizer and the topic is optimizing life. My goal with this blog is to optimize my life, share what I have learned with you, and learn from all of you. But what do you think is the foundation to optimizing life? What is it that gives us the motivation to do that? After thinking about it, I believe that the answer is appreciating life. Appreciating life is the starting point to optimizing it. Why? Because if you appreciate your life, you will want to make the most out of it. You will want to live your life to the fullest.
Do you want to stay relevant in your field? I’m sure you do. But the problem is that skills are becoming obsolete faster than ever. If you aren’t careful, your skills could also become obsolete. Take my field of programming, for instance. Many of the tools that I learned to use just a few years ago are no longer in use today. I have to learn how to use many new tools. That shows the fast pace of the world we live in. If you want to stay relevant, there is no other method than continuously upgrading yourself. You must keep your skills up-to-date. For that, you must be willing to pay the price of relearning. You must be willing to make the effort to learn new skills all over again.
