I had so many ideas for the next post, for the next YouTube video, for the making of my new website, for that side project that I loved so much…

I cannot go there.
I cannot do anything from here if not video calls to cheer up my family.

We all know how important is to work on side projects for your skills, professional and personal life.

People want to start these side projects but often they get stuck thinking too big. They want ideas that are original, big or never been tackled before by other companies.

That’s not always the case while working on side projects.

Many people often ask me:

How can you wake up early in the morning?

How can I workout consistently every single day?
