#devsummer Weekend Break Sibiu
Working on a startup is a very consuming process. Yes, it is satisfying and awesome. But it is consuming. You’re required every now and then to only live and breathe your own startup. The key to doing this is much consistency, passion and being in love with your startup. Then it’s about organizing, prioritizing and others. But the number 1 thing that will get you a great #win is the ocasional BREAK.
Yes, you need to take a break every now and then, otherwise your productivity will go down-hill, along with your imagination and the ability to stick to the greater vision of your project. All of this because of much accumulated tiredness.
Take a break! A city break, sais I.
I’ve been focused on #devsummer so much lately that I’ve mostly only worked on cif2.net and nothing else. Of course, I blogged for customers, did Social Media Management and made some new designs. But I didn’t go out as much. I had my fun, went for a jog every now and then with a great friend of mine. Hit the town a bit. But all-in-all I didn’t do much else then work at cif2.net.
So I find myself today, tired and low on creativity and I can’t wait for tomorrow to take my city break to Sibiu and Platinis.
I wanted to visit this city for a while now. I made a promise to a friend that if he gets a job in Sibiu I’ll go visit. Turns out some other friends are also joining in. Woo-hoo! I never had time to visit the city, I was just in town for concerts (yes, Jethro Tull and Scorpions). See you tomorrow, Sibiu.
Near @Sibiu, is this beautiful place called Paltinis. Everybody sais it’s awesome there and that I have to go visit, so that’s what I’ll do. Especially because the peeps from a hotel, Perla Paltinisului, there promised me some “papanasi” because I’m awesome on Facebook. Hehe. Can’t wait to eat those. I mean, look:
I will also be tweeting photos from the place and writting some blog posts right here, on my Cif2.net blog. I made this PAGE specially for the event.
Write to you tomorrow. City break, here I come. 😀
Where’s your favorite place to take a city break?
Rocking the 30 Day Challenge – Be consistent
I’ve tweeted earlier, that doing a 30 Day Challenge will not mean that you will get an Oscar or a Huge Award for the stuff you’re planning to do for the next 30 days. But it will ensure that you become much more Organized and it will help you achieve Consistency.
And it is true. Ever since I’ve started my 30 Days Challenge, I’ve seen that stuff have started to go really well, even if I didn’t believe it would, at first. But, the next 30 days are going to pass, no matter WHAT you do. So why not try improve something @yourself or just try out something you always wanted?
For me, it’s getting rid of addiction to Coke and Pepsi, watching a TED every day, to improve my creativity and thinking and also delivering a new Cif of the Day everyday. Plus, get some workout. I may have a few days in which I don’t do one of these. But I don’t go to sleep until I do the others.
Try this out. Start with something small. See how it feels. See how your life and your behavior improves.
Have you tried this idea already? How was it?

Cif2.net Dub Step – Green Tech Mix
I’ve started doing these mixtapes for the fans of cif2.net and it’s really cool doing these. Haven’t had time to search for new music until now. So I said: if I find good stuff, why not share it with the community. Right?

I’m glad Facebook finally has competition. Google+ is pushing them to be cool again
[UPDATE:] Seems they were just testing or something. I was so happy it worked again for one day. These guys really don’t know what they’re doing 😐
It was about time something happened and Facebook began to lose ground.
You can already see results of this. I mean, Facebook has finally let Fan Page invites work as they should. They’ve killed them back in March, but thanx to the threat from Google+, it seems they’re back on track with making them work again.
Keep pressing them, Google+. We miss a Facebook that actually works and is enjoyable.
