About

Hey! I’m Michal. And this is my digital journal.

I’ve created this space to practice learning by building in public, with four main intentions:

  1. Develop bias towards action. I often get stuck in collecting ideas for the sake of it and/or perfecting them infinitely before making any practical use of them.

  2. Practice vulnerability by sharing my process and ”unpolished” content online, and ideally–create feedback loops to improve my thinking by engaging with you.

  3. Explore play in the digital space. Digital often feels laborious and/or overwhelming. I know that the key (for me) is to make it playful. Let’s see if I can find digital workflows and toolkits to give me a similar sense of play and freedom to the offscreen world.

Last but not least:

4. Document my process of building sovereignty, sense-making, and living a happy, healthy and fulfilling life–for the benefit of all beings.

One of my cards reminding me to always seek a “triple win”.

Triple Win – A “win-win-win” scenario, meaning a win for me, a win for the other, and a win for all beings. 🌍🐲

It’s (obviously) easier said than done, but that’s a principle I would like to embody in my day-to-day life.

Disclaimer

This is a continuous work in progress and I’m freestyling my way though it. There’s plenty of unfinished pieces and the structure might feel random at times—that's because I'm constantly making changes to figure out what works best.

Oh, and to add more fun to the mix: English grammar is not my forte, and I'm slightly dyslexic. Enjoy the ride.

My thoughts on the process are in the meta section:

If you'd like to hear from me on semi-regular basis, here's my newsletter:

Naming the Elders 🧙🏻‍♂️ (although they’re not really that old)

This little project is inspired by the work and support of a few amazing people, but these three definitely should be named explicitly:

Thanks, Richard Bartlett, for emphasizing the importance of taking action and focusing on verbs, not nouns. And thanks for Microsolidarity. Your work is magic. 🙏

And thanks, Anne-Laure Le Cunff for building this little beauty, which provided the ignition spark that kick-started building my digital journal in public. 🙏

Finally, thank you Silvia Bastos, for being the most amazing (and fun) creature I have ever encountered. 🙏
