我從減肥、斷食中學到的8件事

開始之前,你或許在想沒圖沒真相,所以我特別準備了一張:

不要懷疑,就是同樣的帽子,表示我很愛惜身邊的東西:)
不要懷疑,就是同樣的帽子,表示我很愛惜身邊的東西:)
不要懷疑,就是同樣的帽子,表示我很愛惜東西:)

也許你現在心裡在想……怎麼又是另一個釣魚標題教人減肥的文章。

首先,我什麼都不是,我只不過是一個普通人,也沒有任何教練、營養師、體態管理諮詢師背景,如果你覺得沒有證照的人說的話不可靠,那你可以停止繼續讀下去了,因為我不是你期望的 『專業人士』。

但是我真的瘦了一圈,也只在幾乎1個月內就有明顯的成效。 (如果你以為我要推薦什麼瘦身藥物,你也可以離開了,我完全不想跟你講話)

更棒的是,這個過程又讓我重新愛上了健身。(高中就常常喜歡去學校的健身房跟老師一起訓練、學習,畢竟考試壓力非常大,還是需要有個適當的發洩方式)

再來,我也完全不推崇任何速成、揠苗助長的方式。

給你自己一個期限,在期限內盡可能地去理解『你的身體』,再來採用適當、你喜歡的方式去 …

這是一群平均年齡只有22歲的大學生,在學生宿舍展開創業旅程的故事。

聽起來或許很熱血,但同時他們也非常腳踏實地,在創業的路上,碰到挑戰,一步一步解決,抱持著開放的心態,摸索未知、嘗試新事物。

或許你會說他們很幸運,有認識的人願意幫助他們。但其實是不怕丟臉的心態,讓 Bunny 走得更遠。

或許你會說他剛好只是有個富爸爸在支撐。不是每個人都有富爸爸在撐腰,多少人能夠面對家中落下龐大的債務下,還能保有一顆放手一博去做的精神 ? Bunny 就是這樣的一個人,儘管他同時還是個大學在學生。

大多數的人,只停留在想的階段,跨出實際行動的那一步,遙遙無期。

我從 Bunny 身上學到最棒的一課就是 — 不要怕被拒絕。

不要怕被拒絕的前提就是去嘗試,去問。所以他提著企劃找到對的人、信任他的人,開始將他的想法轉為現實。

Bunny 的故事讓我看到了更多的可能性,當然,想的同時還有腳踏實地去做的精神 …


You ask why? because you’ll give up very very soon.

The way to achieve your goal seems like the image above

Road in the desert, hard to step out and seems endless.

“I need to hit the gym 3 times per week.“, “I want to drop 3 KG in 1 month, cause I’m getting fat!“

You think you need to set a goal at first, then it turned out to be an endless loop.

Set a goal -> Quit -> Feeling guilty -> Forget

Don’t stress yourself too much.

The problem is, we all focus on the wrong things in the first place, especially when we’re just starting out trying new things. …

It is so simple but people are still looking for the “secret”.

Twenty more years went so far in my life.

I’ve been living a life with default mode — Consuming pieces of information from others, from the internet.

It made me anxious, made me feel I am useless. Slipping through a whole bunch of time — struggling, thinking, talking, lying on the couch, yelling, burn out and, still, DO NOTHING.

Inspiring stories are everywhere on Medium, in books, on the internet.

Inspiring means it makes you think then do something.

Most of the time, people including myself just feel inspiring then forget to take actions, apply learnings, ideas into our own game, our own life. …


You think it’s impossible at first until you try.

I’m not talking about those big things in life or those uncomfortable, unsafe things would possibly take away your life.

Let’s start with my past, those weird and small funny experiences.

“ Hey, my name is Simon. Are you available right now to talk? ”

“ The reason I’m calling is that I noticed that your product’s photo changing very often on your business’s social media and website, like almost every quarter, and actually we’re hand-picked and partnered with some very talented photographers to work with business owners like you at a very affordable price.”

“Would you interested in taking your brand’s image to the next level and the best thing is at an affordable price? …

It’s the best time to build the foundation then you can go far.

Lately, I started a new side hustle, asking startup founders about how they launched their careers.

One of the people I asked, Taker, my mentor, sharing life experience, career journey with me. He created an online course teaching people to build the website step by step and ultimately help his student create a life they want which means living a financial freedom life.

We talked about topics on life, relationships, and past experiences building businesses from scratch.

I learned the first step is to learn a SKILL.

Helping people, make people’s life easier, exchange for money is a win-win approach and it’s not impossible to make it happen. …


『你注定要做一件只有你能做的事』

還記得 2014 年的台灣發生什麼大事嗎 ? 整個社會氛圍籠罩在食安風暴之下,部分的消費者透過瘋狂的抵制購買鮮奶行動來表達憤怒、不滿。

我們從電視上僅能得知黑心無良大廠為削減成本,利益最大化的目的做了違背良心、藐視消費者健康,種種令人不齒的行為。

切換視角到台灣的鄉土角落,尤其著名的雲林崙背鄉,有一群人感到驚訝、甚至根本對自己用心栽培生產出的作品 — 鮮奶,最後有沒有順利銷售出去都沒有頭緒。

這天,電視打開,從報導上得知消費者的抵制行動,從驚訝、無助、無奈,到對未來感到不安。

這群人 — 酪農戶們 — 背後真正付出血汗、努力的一群人感到痛心之餘,也無端被捲入鮮乳大廠的無良風暴之中。

你能體會嗎 ? 看見自己的努力被踐踏在地,卻沒有其他選擇,只能暫時與這些無良人士合作,儘管過程中百般的被刁難,只為求得 …


I have no idea. All I know is we all on the way back HOME

2020.9.16. I opened my line app as normal, but this time kind of different.

A NEWS headline was shocking and grabbing my attention immediately.

Alien Huang, Taiwanese actor and singer, dead at 36

Seen on CNN

My first reaction to this NEWS was if this is true, he is still young……so young, like 39-year-old building a thriving entertaining career.

I don’t know what to say.

People said 2020 is a suffering year. A year full of complex series of disasters around the globe.

The legend Kobe Bryant,

The fighter Chadwick Boseman,

In Taiwan this year, many celebrities passed away one after the other. They impacted so many lives out there. …


我不知道,但我知道我們最終都要『回家』

2020.9.16 這天,我打開 Line,新聞快報標題寫著:

藝人小鬼黃鴻升猝逝於住處

類似震驚的字眼,多數人當下的反應可能會是:一定又是假新聞,媒體又唯恐天下不亂了!

我心中的第一句回應則是:如果求證後是真的。他,還很年輕啊……

2020年,大家都說是災難性的一年。

武漢肺炎肆虐全球,多少人失去工作甚至失去寶貴的生命。

多少文化英雄、明星藝人也接二連三的被報導提及,不幸的,也離開了我們。

我會說這年,是很好的時間點讓我們學會面對困境,學會感激的一年。

我們為小鬼的離世感到震驚、可惜,剛好也是因為他確實有名,甚至對那些沒有長期在關注演藝圈的人來說,他的形象也是相當不錯。

但是,世界上、這個社會上又有多少相對默默無名的人、為生命在努力奮鬥的人,也在這段期間失去了寶貴的生命呢?

這件事或許每天都在上演,只是沒有那 …


你做的事情,會反映出你是誰 Your business is the reflection of you

我曾經是 Taker 非常早期創立網頁15天課程的其中一名學生,因此我都稱他老師。

他的生活方式一直是我想追求的,一個看似毫無拘束,可以想做什麼就做什麼的生活,我稱之為 Lifestyle Entrepreneur。

何謂自由?每個人都有不同的定義,對我來說自由當然不是完全的恣意做任何你想做的事而完全不工作、付出心力。

在這時代,你常會聽到很多人說:“我要賺很多很多的錢!”; “我要財富自由!”; “我想要有很多錢的時候去環島” 等等的回應。

但我喜歡從反面去思考:

  • 如果我在毫無資源,甚至資源不足的情況下,我能夠做些什麼來更接近我想達到的目標或是我想做的事?
  • 何謂真正的富足?更多的錢才能滿足嗎?還是夠了就是夠了?
  • 我夢寐以求的旅行真的需要很多錢嗎?那會是多少錢?有什麼其他替代方式能夠讓我完成它?

這次的訪談中,聊到人生、自由
