Changing our reality.

~ March 7th, 1:14pm.
~ Location: My home.
~ Music: Jungle Fresh by the Gorillaz.
~ Attire: My beat up gardening pants, and an old t-shirt (no shoes/socks).

My decision to work from home this year has me thinking more and more about our reality. Mainly, how easy it is to mold, and create whatever we want. Every single decision we make, leads to a new reality for us. Even the smallest decisions can lead us to completely different realities. Continue reading “Changing our reality.”

Take the time to reflect on yourself.

Boom! The year is just about over, in the blink of an eye. Perhaps this is a normal feeling for someone who is constantly working, but maybe it’s something else. Maybe it’s simply the fact that the world we live in, is getting busier, and busier. My 89 year old grandmother even feels it, and she spends most days at home…

Getting caught up in the busyness of this world is an easy task to accomplish. Not only does time fly by us, but we often forget to take a step back, and truly reflect on what our year was like. Spending that time to pin point where we can improve our lives is absolutely necessary in my eyes. Neglecting the thoughts, and feelings that take place between our own two ears because we lack reflection time, is a silly mistake to make. One that is easily avoidable if we’re aware enough to do something about it. Continue reading “Take the time to reflect on yourself.”

Hair and ideas.

And just like that, I’m celebrating my 16th No Shave November in a row. Until recently, I just assumed it was another odd “holiday” gig that popped up, as so many do. As it turns out, it all started around 2004 with a foundation based in
Australia, and New Zealand named “Movember Foundation”. Mo(moustache)vember, was put into place as a creative way to get more people talking about men’s health. The idea was simple, grow out some hair you normally wouldn’t, and once questioned about it, the fuzzy individual has an opportunity to raise awareness of various cancers commonly found in men.

Wake up and smell the extinction!

I’m in a ranty mood today, mostly about humanity, and this royally screwed up society that we’ve created for ourselves.  What we’ve designed, simply is not working for us, or the planet which provides us with the ability to even exist here in the first place.  When is the last time you sat down by yourself, and questioned what your role is in this life.  Why are you here, what do you have to offer, and where are you going?   Continue reading “Wake up and smell the extinction!”

Music vs Podcasts

As a real estate agent, I do a ton of driving.  Roughly 28,000 miles per year, it’s not rare for me to have days that involve me putting 200 miles on my car, simply from showing homes.  Up until earlier this year, I’d switch between NPR, and the same old stations on Pandora.  I had tried a few audio books, but never really got into them, so I dumped that idea.  This was my regular routine for 5 years while covering the valley in my green machine (definitely not a panty dropper of a car).

Whether it was from sheer boredom, or simple curiosity, I finally decided to test out some podcasts about 4 months ago.  Since then, I’ve been totally hooked, I feel like I’ve discovered a whole new part of Dragan that I never knew existed.  Perhaps I had just fallen into that lame cycle of following the regular routine, whatever it was, I’m excited to be out of it.  I have never wanted to learn more about everything out there than NOW.

It started with a couple very boring drives to Nogales, AZ, and a crap ton of Ted Talks episodes.  I listed to every single Ted Talks episode available on subjects I had interest in.  From there, it lead to listening to Tony Robins, as he was a guest on a Ted Talks show.  I listened to Tony for a month solid, then Moved on to Terence McKenna who absolutely blew my mind, and continues to do so until this day (he always will, amazing guy).  My two latest, and possibly favorite people to listen to, have been Seth Godin, and Tim Ferriss.  These last two have led me to some pretty incredible ways of thinking, and goals to achieve in life.  I’m extremely grateful to have come across them!

Podcasts have helped me rediscover my passion for reading and creating, but have also given me the ambition to simply be an amazing human being.  We all have it in us, it’s simply a matter of taking action on it.  You either choose to be an amazing person through specific actions in your life, or you coast by comfortably (or not so comfortably).  Neither choice is necessarily right or wrong, it’s got to be a personal decision.  Mine, is to challenge myself to become the absolute best version of Dragan that I can be, in all aspects of my life.

Cocos Locos!

Life doesn’t need to be nearly as complicated as most of us make it.  We have the choice to do what we want with our time, and our lives, yet so few choose to take control of this opportunity.  If you want to go sell coconuts on the beaches of Mexico, then go sell coconuts on the beaches of Mexico.  Most people will not do this for a variety of reasons, and excuses, so they simply bitch about what isn’t right in their lives.

Humans have more options than any other being on Earth as far as we know, and perhaps, that it part of the problem.  Maybe we need to dig deep, and go back to more of an archaic time when it comes to our life choices.  Food, sex, art, nature, shelter, and deeper relationships with our fellow human beings would go a long way in my opinion.  There isn’t enough time in the day, month, year, or lifetime to keep up with everything currently available to us.  Too many choices can be paralyzing, so pick a handful that are meaningful to you, and roll with them.

Go be a crazy coconut!
