Κάνε κάθε λεπτό να μετράει!
Αχ αυτός ο ιός που μας έκλεισε στα σπίτι μας. Μας δίνει χρόνο να αναλογιστούμε πόσο πολύτιμος είναι ο χρόνος μας επάνω στη γη, αλλά και πόσο λίγος είναι, Ξαφνικά και από εκεί που δεν το περιμένεις μπορεί να τον χάσεις. Εμείς όμως επειδή είμαστε άνθρωποι με πάθη και λάθη, δεν το σκεφτόμαστε συχνά. Πορευόμαστε με μια άπληστη σιγουριά ότι όλα είναι καλά και κάνεις και τίποτα δεν μπορεί να με εμποδίσει στη ζωή αυτή. Να που δεν είναι έτσι τα πράγματα. Να θυμάσε να δίνεις αξία σε κάθε λεπτό μέσα στην ημέρα σου. Είναι στο χέρι σου. Είναι στο χέρι μας να μην αφήνουμε στιγμή να περνάει χωρίς να την εκμεταλλευτούμε. Ο χρόνος μας εδώ εκτός από πολύτιμος είναι κα μετρημένος, γι'αυτό μιας και έχεις αρκετό χρόνο τώρα σκέψου πως θα ενεργείς όταν όλα επιστρέψουν στην "κανονικότητα". Εάν σου φάνηκε χρήσιμο το επεισόδιο αυτό σκέψου την επόμενη φορά να το μοιραστείς με κάποιον δικό σου, να κάνεις ένα like ή ένα review σε όποια πλατφόρμα και εάν το ακούς. Να είστε όλοι καλά και να πλένετε τα χέρια σας.

5 πράγματα που θα μάθουμε από την πανδημία!
Σίγουρα υπάρχουν ακόμα περισσότερα και θα ήθελα πολύ να τα ακούσω και να τα μοιραστείτε μαζί με όλους εμάς.  Εύχομαι να είστε όλοι καλά και ασφαλής στα σπίτια σας. Είμαστε μαζί σε όλο αυτό. Καλή δύναμη. Θα περάσει.

Being part of an organizing team | Startup Weekend Thessaloniki
Το 2017 μου δόθηκε μια πολύ μεγάλη ευκαιρία και συμμετείχα για πρώτη φορά στην οργανωτική ομάδα ενός startup weekend, στην πόλη της Καβάλας. Έκτοτε είχα την τιμή να συμμετέχω στη διοργάνωση ενός startup weekend στην πόλη μου τη Θεσσαλονίκη το 2018 ενώ τέλος τον Μάρτιο θα είναι η τρίτη μου φορά στη διοργάνωση για μία ακόμη φορά στη Θεσσαλονίκη. Νιώθω πραγματικά ευγνώμων για όλα αυτά που έμαθα, για όλους τους ανθρώπους τους οποίους γνώρισα αλλά και για όλα όσα θα έρθουν στο μέλλον. Τον Μάρτιο λοιπόν, από 20 έως και 22 στο Ok!Thess θα πραγματοποιηθεί το startup weekend Thessaloniki για όλους όσους επιθυμούν να προσπαθήσουν για το δικό τους επιχειρείν. Στο επεισόδιο αυτό μιλάω για τα θετικά που απόλαυσα μέσα από τη συμμετοχή μαζί με άλλα παιδιά στη δημιουργία και στήσιμο του event αυτού. Στο σύνδεσμο θα βρείτε περισσότερες πληροφορίες για το startup weekend, 20 με 22 Μαρτίου 2020 >> http://communities.techstars.com/greece/thessaloniki/startup-weekend/15770

The power of journaling | An effective method of documentation
Είχα ακούσει πάρα πολλά για τις ευεργετικές ιδιότητες του journaling! Πρόκειται ουσιαστικά για μία μέθοδο καταγραφής της καθημερινότητας, των ιδεών, σκέψεων και συναισθημάτων. Σε βοηθά να μείνεις συγκεντρωμένος σε όλα όσα είναι σημαντικά για εσένα, αρκεί να είσαι ειλικρινής με τον εαυτό σου. Δεν περίμενα ότι λειτουργεί και ήμουν επιφυλακτικός. Με κάποιες δικές μου παραλλαγές χρησιμοποίησα και εγώ τη μέθοδο αυτή όμως και κατάφερα να ανακαλύψω πτυχές και πράγματα που δεν περίμενα ότι υπάρχουν.  Τελικά αποδείχθηκε ότι καλύτερο! Και φυσικά το συνιστώ σε όλους!   Στο επεισόδιο μίλησα και για το Startup Weekend που θα γίνει στη Θεσσαλονίκη τον Μάρτιο αυτό >> http://communities.techstars.com/greece/thessaloniki/startup-weekend/15770

Read before you think!
Κάτι που με βοήθησε πολύ στο να διαμορφώσω άποψη και γνώμη για πολλά θέματα, ειναι το διάβασμα! Πλέον γνωρίζω καλα ότι ο τομέας ο οποίος θα ηθελα να απασχοληθω μετά την τωρινή μου εργασία ειναι το μαρκετινγκ και η επιχειρηματικοτητα! Με την ανάγνωση βιβλίων μπορω να παίρνω την πληροφορία όποτε θελήσω ακόμα και να ανατρέξω σε αυτή οποιαδήποτε στιγμή! Ειναι κάτι που με διαμορφώνει και με κάνει νιώθω σίγουρος για τον εαυτό μου! Για το νέο χρόνο έχω ξεκινήσει το προσωπικό μου challenge, a book per month, δηλαδή η ανάγνωση ενός βιβλίου κάθε μήνα! Κάντε join και εσεις και ελάτε να ανταλλάξουμε απόψεις, γνώμες, πληροφορίες και γνώση!

In 2020, we start from scratch!
This has never been a better time for me to start things over. Meaning let's start this podcast over! From the very beginning of this year I have been consistent in publishing an episode per week.  This led me to understand to some more changes I have to make with it. Saying that this podcast is documenting my journey until I find my dream job and yet not describing anything at all about my process, is unacceptable. So, starting from now with these weekly episodes I'm gonna try and document each and every little thing I do in order to get there!   Moreover, my dream for now is to create our #cmscommunity, that means people that have and want to quit their jobs to pursue a life truly wanted!  Let's dive into this episode.  Listen on: - Spotify --> https://open.spotify.com/show/3EVZ0y0VpBYyhrmDvcPINc?nd=1  - Itunes --> https://podcasts.apple.com/gr/podcast/creative-mind-sessions/id1448411573?l=el

Age is just a number!
Το 2020 ήρθε και μας φόρτωσε έναν χρόνο ακόμα. Τα πρώτα άντα που λένε όταν τα πλησιάζεις είναι σαν να παθαίνεις ηλεκτροσόκ. Ρεύμα διαπερνά το σώμα και την ψυχή σου όταν κοιτάζεις πίσω στην πρώτη δεκαετία της ζωής σου και βλέπεις πόσο καλά δούλεψαν τα πράγματα για εσένα. Μόνο που ξεχνάμε να σκεφτούμς πόσο δουλέψαμε εμείς. Το 30 είναι απλά ένα νούμερο. Υπάρχει χρόνος να ξεκινήσεις από το μηδέν όσες φορές θελήσεις. Αρκεί να προσπαθείς για τη ζωή που πραγματικά θα ήθελες να έχεις.

Συνάντησα τους Trip Flakes!
Αναπάντεχη συνάντηση με δύο άγνωστους πρίν το τέλος του 2019. Δεν θα μπορούσε όμως να είναι καλύτερη αυτή η γνωριμία, με δυο παιδιά που ξεκίνησαν τώρα το δικό τους podcast.  Μέσα από το Trip Flakes ο Χάρης και ο Αργύρης μοιράζονται με όλους εμάς ιστορίες και στιγμές από τα ταξίδια που έχουν κάνει, μέσα από ένα πάντρεμα με ταινίες που συμάδεψαν τη ζωή τους και όλα αυτά όταν ο ένας βρίσκεται στην Αγγλία και ο άλλος στη Θεσσαλονίκη.  Δεν γινόταν το αποτέλεσμα να μην είναι καθηλωτικό.  Ακολουθήστε το podcast αλλά και τους ίδιους παρακάρω: Trip Flakes on Spotify - - > https://open.spotify.com/show/1MApL1kPj4jfC4t4ZjUWjR Χάρης - - > https://grecontrek.com/en/ Αργύρης - - > https://www.instagram.com/argichatz/?hl=el

The thing that surprised me the most this summer!
And it is not something new. It was me that didn't want to see the problem! But it does exists and we have to do something.  We are to change someone, who will encourage another one and goes on.

What a week!!
I had the best week until this time of the year! I was honored to participate with the greatest innovation ecosystem of Thessaloniki, at the International Fair of Thessaloniki. You were able to find at Pavilion 12, Stand OK!Thess!  OK!Thess is Thessaloniki’s leading startup hub and a catalyst for the growth of the local innovation ecosystem. It helps entrepreneurs bring innovative ideas to market through an acceleration program that includes training, coaching, matchmaking with mentors and access to capital. OK!Thess is also the place where community meetups and open events allow like-minded peers to mix and connect. So, if you got the idea that world needs, bring it here and make it happen.

DAY 49 - Work ethic
This is something that I've been thinking lately and I wanted to share with all of you. Work ethic does not anymore exist as we know it. Bad for us. We need to triple down on that. It is something that everybody needs to work with himself. There's no one to blame for our words and acts.
