Running For My Life – from zero to ultramarathoner

The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”

And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.

Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.

If you want to know how I got out of this space, eventually, check out my latest book on Amazon and Kindle.

Running For My Life -from zero to ultramarathoner

I’m a serial online entrepreneur, story teller, geek, blogger, father, runner, light seeker. I also think happiness is a process, not a goal.

In this space I help people to become more productive, to get healthy habits (like waking up early), to start their own business or to run marathons and ultra-marathons.

Ultimately, I try to live a better life, keep away from screwing up and be always ready to start fresh.

If you want to know more, you can go straight to the blog.  (I’m also writing in Romanian, every now and then, here).

What's Inside, You Asked?

Personal Development

All those things that are making us better in some way. Even if (or especially if) they are challenging, difficult, taking us outside the comfort zone.


We’re social animals. We do need other people in our lives. We crave to relate. Sometimes the dynamic of these relationships gets weird. And fascinating.

Online Business

I started my first online business before Google (and successfully sold it 9 years later). And I still love being in the online business, growing, learning, sharing.


A few years after starting this blog, I also started to run. I am now a marathoner ultra-marathoner, enjoying races longer than 100km. Or more.


Being an entrepreneur is a tough thing nowadays, so I had to learn how not get burned out. And I event invented my own productivity framework.

Money & Wealth

Yes, I do think money plays an important role in our lives. Hence, the need to properly relate to this thing. Which I consider to be a form of energy.
