Because what else would you do with old hardware?

Do you have an old dusty computer standing around in the corner just waiting for someone to boot it up and do something cool with it already?

Well, then let’s make good use of this old hardware by building our own completely self-hosted GitLab instance and making it remote-controllable from…


Weigh your options carefully — decide efficiently

For a long time, I’ve tried to implement the habits of highly successful people. Do exactly what they do, and it will lead to the same results.

Like many others, I followed this idea for years, until I discovered John C. Maxwell’s How Successful People Think. This book completely changed…


If you want to learn, listen closely to the ones with the most experience

Today I stumbled across a video called Life Lessons from 100-Year-Olds. I was immediately blown away by the idea of this video and the statements of the people within it. So much so, that just had to write an article about it.

Of course, I highly recommend watching it by…


Blood, Sweat and Tears

… ZU DIENEN!

These are the words every Austrian soldier has to shout out loud after 4 weeks of basic training in the Austrian military.

Achieving your goals faster and more efficient

How can highly successful people get so much done during their day?

That’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot. It’s become almost a daily habit to read, watch, or listen to those people, to find out what their secret is.

Recently, I’ve stumbled upon a book called Getting…


Lessons for all the newbie writers out there

Before we begin, let me warn you right away: This is not going to be a “How I Make $1000 Every Month On Medium” type of story. It won’t be that exciting, interesting, nor motivating. Maybe, it’ll even be a bit boring.

But what this article definitely offers, is honesty…


If you’re a beginner writer, listen closely

Within the past three months, I’ve published exactly 42 articles.

Back when I wrote my first piece, this was just a fun little experiment. To be honest, I started writing because I read a few articles about how much money authors on this platform make. …


If you decide to consume — do it the right way

Sometimes, I don’t want to produce. I don’t want to write an article, do the chores, exercise, or finish something for work.

I just want to sit down and watch a YouTube video, or read a book. But then I find myself watching some Twitch livestream for over three hours…
