When things go wrong at the last minute

Hello Amazing! 


What do you do if an engine fails during take-off? As the plane accelerates down the runway it will reach a speed where it is not yet fast enough to fly, but going so fast that it can't stop safely either. This speed is called V1, and it varies depending on aircraft and weather conditions. At this speed, the pilot will no longer abort the take-off. Even if an engine explodes, the other engine will keep accelerating the plane until it can lift off.


V1 speed is the key for one more reframe in your life. Mathias shares a story from his past and invites you to think about what's the V1 point in your work. How do you know if you've reached it? Is there a similarly counter-intuitive move that helps?


You can think of V1 speed in other parts of your life too. For instance, you love your kids but feel trapped in your marriage because of them. You don't want to leave them but a current life with your partner, whom you love too, makes you dead inside sometimes... You've passed the V1 point already, but one day your kids will grow and leave the home. What could you do to make you worthwhile and enjoyable until then? Ponder the fundamental dogma of Stoicism: the difference between what depends on us and what does not depend on us.

Can you learn more if you amplify a painful mistake

Hello Amazing! How hard are you with yourself usually?


Where are you on a scale from zero (I’m always kind with myself) to six (I’m my worst enemy).


If you are not used to be kind with yourself, this episode is a gentle reminder to let go inner dialogue by inner. It keeps your mind occupied with worthless worry.
