Hello, I’m Jalex, Filipino, of legal age, married, 2 kids, and 1 wife. Hah.
I was an electronics engineer by training, was licensed to practise, but swayed away from the profession by a plethora of opportunities offered by the online & business world.
My work experiences cover teaching, ICT, marketing, freelancing, and entrepreneurship. I had a break on our latest start-up, I got some free time to make a blog.
There are plenty of possible topics, but aside from psychology, making money, and marketing, I am most fascinated by human nature, personal development, and existentialism. And that’s what we’re talking about here.
What do you want out of life?
How do you want to be remembered?
What legacy do you want to leave?
Join me in my journey about self-[re]discovery, dream chasing, and pursuing “more”
Inspired by Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs:
Psysiological Needs – air, water, food, sleep, shelter, clothing, reprodution
Safety Needs – security, source of income, health, wealth
Love & Belonging – family, friendship, intimacy, sense of connection
Esteem – self-esteem, confidence, recognition, social status, time-money freedom
Self-Actualization – sense of fulfilment, living to full potential, and inner peace
We can summarize these needs into two categories:
CRAVING TO BE APPRECIATED
Anyhow, let’s fulfill them level after level!
There’s so many lovable things available to do, yet we can only have fixed amount of time. So a saying goes “spend your time on things that will give back the best value.”
