Habits of successful people” gives you about 231,000,000 results. Are people looking for patterns that they can adopt to become happier, better, healthier? Do we believe that if we follow the same habits, we eventually become successful? I would say that it’s not a proven recipe, but the odds will be much higher. I firmly believe that we can program our life using a range of habits divided into categories like relationships, health, money, and personal development. Having solid habits help to automate many things in your life, becoming principles that guide you in life, a pattern that you follow…


My future book archive. Me in front of Book Tower in the Municipal Library of Prague.

“The keys to life are running and reading. When you’re running, there’s a little person that talks to you and says, “Oh I’m tired. My lung’s about to pop. I’m so hurt. There’s no way I can possibly continue.” You want to quit. If you learn how to defeat that person when you’re running. You will how to not quit when things get hard in your life. For reading: there have been gazillions of people that have lived before all of us. There’s no new problem you could have — with your parents, with school, with a bully. There’s no…


The best performing athletes are not only outstanding from a physical standpoint but also a psychological one. Keeping a cold head in the crucial moments is vital for winning the game. Entrepreneurs, as with athletes, master their skills over time. They are highly motivated to achieve their goals and become better by raising the bar higher and higher. Often, we fight with our inner voice about if we should give up or not, but a proper mindset allows you to move forward despite failing. Being an entrepreneur is definitely not a bed of roses. It’s a constant rollercoaster when you…

When you pitch your startup, one of the fundamental questions from investors will likely be “What problem does your product solve?” This is because problems present opportunities — they are excellent catalysts for inventing new ideas. But how do you separate the good from the bad ideas? I believe that without doing any step further, you can’t because there are numerous pieces of evidence that, even initially, silly ideas become successful.

In the Beginning there is Chaos

A company that I started five years ago designs mobile and web interfaces. Below, I have attached a picture of what a standard design process looks like, and I…


Your main goal should validate your idea in the fastest, cheapest way possible. The more ideas you can test, the better. Time is a non-renewable resource, so you’d better spend your life on building a product which not only excites you but solves a real problem (and for which there is a massive market). So how can we separate good ideas from bad ones?

Fall in love with the problem. You need to be obsessed with the underlying problem. Why is it so important? Because it’s highly possible that your first solutions might not be right. (Did you know that…


Iceland 2018
Iceland 2018
“Selfie” in Iceland.

Making new year’s resolutions is a common habit, but only 8% of people stick to them. For the last 3 years, I’ve spent the last days of each year doing some introspection of what I’ve accomplished and how the year went. My 2019 was pretty remarkable.

My two main personal goals for 2019 were the following:

  1. Travel more
  2. Learn photography
