The most noticeable ones are (alphabetic order): adventurer, freelance trainer, keynote speaker, piano player, singer and composer, people developer, psychodynamic master coach, master diver, mentor, motorcycle rider, world traveler…Work in progress to become a certified skydiver.
Looking at this ingredients and flavours, I would easily split them in two main areas or categories: personal development/pleasure and people/business development. Basically, Andrei’s life is about…development. :)
One day I’ve found this quote that became a guide for my life: “Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life” – Confucius.
It took me many years to get there. I’ve been trough so many jobs and experiences, in extremely different domains, from call center, to technical, sales, management and eventually, one day I’ve discovered training, which was the closest one to the quote above. Years after, getting in touch with coaching and then psychoanalysis, I realised that this two where the missing puzzles, to complete the picture of the confucian quote in my life.
In my opinion, balance is all about being conscious.
We might consider that “balance" means an even split of energy and/or time spent into work vs personal life, but balance, actually is a conscious choice of investing and sacrificing your main resources, for goals or achievements.
On the other hand, unfortunately, we are so often guided by unconscious impulses and we have no idea how on earth we became “workaholics" in a job that we hate!? Or we have no clue that we are constantly running into personal pleasure and satisfaction only (like: all day long on social media, way too many daily hours at the gym or spending lots of resources on things or activities with no return on investment), with zero investment in personal and career/job development!? And this is what I call “unbalanced life-work”.
I believe that a mentor is something you become, and it involves trust, loyalty, experience…
A mentor needs both, human skills, like empathy, adaptability, communication, tolerance, creativity, resilience, critical thinking, wisdom and hard skills like technical/professional expertise, analytical attitude, teaching, coaching, and many other skills that provides a wide rage of opportunities to help others grow.
We are investing lots of resources in cars or motorcycles to make them work great. We often buy the best engine oil, the best accessories, we clean it constantly, we spend many hours in service every year. If you don’t have a car or motorcycle, use this example for your house, bicycle, snowboard, fishing rod, cooking tools, sport equipments, aquarium, musical instruments, DIY tools and instruments, clothes, TVs and speakers…etc
If you are investing less time, money and other resources in self development, it means you are less important for yourself than a car/bicycle/aquarium/TV/etc…
Think about it! 😉
