Today Is Life Optimizer’s 13th Anniversary

On September 7, 2006, I published the first post at Life Optimizer. That was 13 years ago! At that time, I was taking my master’s degree overseas. Personal development had been a passion of mine and I decided to start a blog.

It was a (very) slow start. For months, I barely had anybody read my writings. But fortunately, it then got some traction. In 2009, I made enough from the blog to quit my day job. Fast forward to today, I still publish new posts roughly once a week.

You know what? After all these years, I’m still passionate about the mission: helping people reach their full potential. It still resonates with me. On the other hand, I know that I could do a lot better at it. I’m not as good at the mission as I should be.

So, going forward, I plan to focus more on the mission. I want to be better at helping people reach their full potential.

My plan on how to do that is to develop apps that are aligned with the mission. I might also build a sister website or two to complement Life Optimizer. They will have the same mission but cover different aspects of it. I’ll give you more details when the time comes.

Thank you for being with me on this journey! I hope I can better help you in the future.
