Thinking Time

Thinking Time – Think First Then Act – Work Smarter Not Harder

Thinking Time

Today is the most essential day of your life.

Thinking time is the most essential time of your day.

Thinking TimeThat’s why I want to share my questions, for which I am finding answers every morning (before I get up) and write them down:

  1. What would I do today if I died tomorrow?
  2. What would I learn today if I lived forever?
  3. How can I love myself and the world better?
  4. Which action will I take today to move in the direction of my major goals?
  5. Which of my dreams can I make even bigger and initiate the next little step in its direction?

This is actually a priming exercise, which serves you with new answers to the same questions, almost every day. It gets you out of the dilemma of having only two choices: Yes and no, black or white or move on or stop. By the end of the week, you can choose which answer serves you the best.

What are your thinking time questions?

About Live Your Dream Klaus Forster writes in his book Networking at Dream Beaches:

“An old dream which I almost forgot became true in Bali. I dreamed that I was living in a basic wooden house next to the ocean. While I was earning my money by day trading in the hammock between two palm trees. In which I saw myself with the laptop on my stomach, a cable to the modem and another one to the phone network. One of the palms had a phone connector to serve me with an internet connection. In my mind, I always had a picture of Queensland in Australia. The combination of working online with the digital nomads during the day at Villa Mimpi Manis and spending the sunsets at Echo beach matched exactly the feeling I had in my dream.

By the way, “Mimpi Manis” is the Indonesian expression for “sweet dreams”, so it made my sweet dream become reality!”

Sleep Rhythm: Getting Around With 2-4 Hours of Sleep a Day – Part 4

Week 2: Adaptation of  The Sleep Rhythm

In my posts from last week about reducing the sleeping time I shared the principles and some techniques I utilized to do so. Here comes my assumption of the second week of my experiment.

Being able to sleep anywhere and instantly is the key to reducing the sleeping time

Most of the days I was able to stick with my sleep rhythm during the day. Sometimes I skipped one sleep. But during the night I always needed a longer sleeping period. Mostly I got around with about 6 hours of sleep. Further, I did not find a good reason to stay awake all night and realized that getting up at 4:30 🕟 a.m. was not so effective. The 8 o’clock sleep was in conflict with my fitness training🏋️‍♀️, and 12 noon with my lunch 🥗.

Tuning the sleep rhythm

So I changed my sleep rhythm, having a long sleeping phase from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. and having subsequent phases at 9 a.m., 1 p.m., 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. for up to 30 minutes each, which is up to 6 hours in total. Which already adds 2 to 4 hours to my days, compared to my former sleeping habit of 8 to 10 hours. Even if I found that the long sleeping phase was not more relaxing than the short ones, and I got awake several times during the night.

I found out that making love 💕 is a good way to get awake after sleeping 😴, as well as to fall asleep. Obviously, you won’t be able to utilize it for each sleeping phase of the sleep rhythm… but for the long one, it is quite pleasant, and on top of it, it’s pretty satisfying!

Measuring the sleep rhythm

To enable tracking of my sleep rhythm I downloaded the app “Sleep Cycle” on my phone. It listens to my breathing while I am sleeping and based on that it analyses the bedtime and the sleeping depth. The biggest benefit was, that I was able to choose a wake-up time window. It chooses a lighter sleep phase to wake me up within 30 minutes before the chosen time and promises, that you don’t feel as sleepy as waking up from an alarm during your deep sleeping phase. My first impression is, that this works, but I do not use it long enough to be completely confident about it. Unfortunately, it does not support short naps, nor sleep rhythms with multiple sleeping phases during the day, so I have to adapt the wake-up time each time I go to sleep.

On Saturday, which is my junk food day, I took a day off from this sleep rhythm, not taking any sleeping breaks during the day, and sleeping at night as long as my body wants to sleep. I assume that it will support me being disciplined with my sleeping the sleep rhythm on the other days because the junk food day helps me to stick to my healthy diet for the rest of the week. So I am modeling an effective habit, I already use in a different field. Modeling is actually the quickest way of learning. Now I am curious how it will affect my sleep rhythm in the future.

Analyzing the sleep rhythm

Using the Sleep Cycle app made me aware how much time I spent in bed during the day: Even if I was able to reduce the sleeping time with my strategy, I got aware, that I spent almost as much time in bed, as with only one daily sleeping cycle of 8 to 10 hours. I have the feeling, things are getting pretty complicated now, which fucks up every business, habit, and strategy. I probably have to focus on some simplifications of the sleep rhythm, I expect my day off will help me to think about that. So far I couldn’t make it with less than 6 hours. Let’s see how the next week goes with the modifications to my schedule, and which ideas I will find to simplify the strategy.

Networking at Dream Beaches, The Freedom of a Digital Nomad’s Life

Author Klaus Forster

“Wow, are you on vacation?” – “No, I work here!”

A laptop and a reliable, fast WiFi are the only tools required for many self-employed people today. Due to this, they can work as so-called digital nomads and live wherever they like.

This freedom results in a happy life as an entrepreneur. And to experience that, it is necessary to be able to let go and be free from a mistaken belief. That one’s own business can survive only through one’s own work.

In this book, Klaus Forster describes how he has embraced the life philosophy, of the digital nomads. How he optimized and digitized processes so, that he is able to enjoy life in harmony with his work. This book is an homage and invitation for the self-employed, to go with him on a trip to Bali. Get inspired by his experiences, to create your own entrepreneurial life of freedom and happiness.

The freedom to work from wherever you want

At some point in life, we will have to make some decisions, that will affect our being. We belong either to the group of those who want to increase their wealth, expand their possessions and increase their status or renounce everything material and live only for life itself. Our social system and education suggest that only these two ways are possible. But remember, we always have the freedom of choice, to find and go the alternative way. This is not an ‘either-or’ decision. Being and giving are not mutually exclusive. They instead result in economic success, which arises as a natural and logical consequence.

About the author Klaus Forster

Music Dream Maker and Author Klaus ForsterI, the music dream maker Klaus Forster, was 44 years old when I founded my company Rooms4Music in 2009 and started business operations in 2010. It is a typical “old economy” business, where I rent commercial space, in a very special market niche. I rent large spaces, which no longer meet today’s standards and rent them out to bands and musicians as rehearsal rooms and recording studios. In fact, my business is nothing but a real estate agent and facility management, with the only difference being that my tenants are musicians.

At the same time, I was a caretaker and receptionist. I took care of the vocal equipment and amplifiers during the opening hours, set up the rehearsal studios and filled up the refrigerator with drinks.

In no way, I ever imagined that this business could be automated or virtualized in any way. I had to be present on the spot for thousands of reasons. I spent many hours every day at the rehearsal studios, and I was continuously thinking about the possibilities of a structural improvement in this direction, which was always working in my subconscious mind.

Fortune or Focus?

Vision: In 2022 the most successful German bands will come from StuttgartFortunately, I came across a book by Stefan Merath, that gave me a very special entrepreneurial way of thinking and helped me to develop my company vision “By 2022 the most successful German bands will be from Stuttgart”.

Over the consequent years, I implemented most of the strategies and methods described in the book in my company. After a period of time, I was ready to take one week of remote work each month. At the same time, I discovered that traveling and the freedom associated with traveling were much more important to me than the music I originally wanted to support with my rehearsal studios.

Lessons learned

Even if your dream seems like an illusion, imaginary or almost unreal, do not dismiss them! Within them is your true direction. Even if they seem remote from the “real” world, the core that dwells in them is what you long and strive for.

Start with a great goal that seems almost unattainable to you. e.g. like my vision that “By 2022 the most successful German bands shall come from Stuttgart”. Your dream should be so attractive that it will give you drive and energy even in difficult times and will always give you the direction you want. Even if you cannot see the future because of the many tasks that lay ahead. Always live your big goal, your BIG PICTURE is worth everything. Always remember, concentrate on your vision, anchoring this goal in your heart. Daily!

Networking at Dream Beaches, The Freedom of a Digital Nomad’s Life


Just letting go and taking some time out seems to many self-employed and entrepreneurs an impossible dream: Yet without it, they sabotage the business altogether!

For Klaus Forster, fate had to start the turning-point of his life: after the death of his brother-in-law, the independent pro-renegade, dropped everything to stand by his beloved sister. From his own experience, he describes how he learned step by step the full benefits of a digitized world, automating business processes and having a happy life in harmony with his work. A key experience was a workation in Bali, where he quickly moved his home office to the island to exchange knowledge with other self-employed workers, on a joint holiday and to get closer to his own vision, distancing himself, from the otherwise mundane tasks of his everyday life.

In his book, he gives valuable tips and encourages self-employed and entrepreneurs to be inspired by his story.

How to Practice Gratitude

How to Practice Gratitude

How to Practice Gratitude

Almost every day I am writing down 5 things I am grateful for. And I am doing it already for some years. As soon as I was feeling the benefits, I started asking myself: how to practice gratitude in a more intensive way. And I found that during and after meditation the feeling of gratitude appears. So the easiest way to intensify it consciously is to concentrate on gratitude during meditation.

Why to practicing gratitude?

Gratitude is the opposite of fear and grief. Both negative feelings disappear if you are grateful. I will explain this in this video in more detail: An easy exercise against grief and fear.

Learn how to enable English subtitles for the video.

Here is how to practice gratitude:

Sit down in a lotus position and close your eyes. While you are breathing diaphragmatic, lead your breathing energy down to the Muladhara chakra. This is the source of your tantric energy. You can optionally intensify it, by tightening your pelvic floor muscles.

How to find your pelvic floor muscle?

Hold this tension of the pelvic floor muscle for some breaths. You may start holding this tension for 2 or 3 breaths. And then consciously release it. Because if your pelvic floor muscle is not trained, you will lose the feeling for this tension after a short while. When you got a bit of training, you can increase the number of breaths for holding the tension of the pelvic floor muscle to 4, 5 or even 9 out of 10 breaths. Take in total 10 diaphragmic breaths while you are thinking:

I am grateful for my energy

How to Practice Gratitude

Smile and correct your seating position. Unconsciously you might have started pulling with your hands on your knees. But then your spine ends up like a banana. So, straighten your backbone and release any tension you find in your body. My running coach always said: Imagine there is a helium balloon above your head, which is pulling your head up. This image helps to sit with a straight back.

For the next 10 breaths, lead your breathing energy to your navel. And hold the tension in the pelvic floor for the first few breaths. Imagine the energy flow from the pelvic floor to your navel. So you got two energy streams, your breathing energy, as well as your tantric energy. One is flowing down from the nose and the other one is flowing up from your center of energy, the pelvic floor. Keep the energy flowing. And think for 10 breaths:

I am grateful for my consciousness and having my life in order

Correct your posture. And for the next 10 breaths let the energy flow in the same way while leading the two energy flows to your stomach. While doing this for 10 diaphragmatic breaths think:

I am grateful for my job, the work I am doing, my wealth and all of my assets

Are you still smiling? For the next 10 breaths let the energy flow in the same way while leading the two energy flows to your heard and think. Remember to hold your pelvic floor muscle for the first few breaths.

I am grateful for loving myself, my life, the people around me, the world and the entire universe

Then you are leading your energy, the same way as before to your throat and think:

I am grateful for the water I drink and the healty food that feeds me

Is your posture ok? Then lead your energy to your mouth, while thinking:

I am grateful for honest words

Did you keep up the energy flow? Keep it up. Then focus on your nose:

I am grateful for the air and oxygen I am breathing

Are you smiling? So focus on your eyes:

I am grateful for everything I see

Is the helium balloon still pulling your head up and your spine straight? Then focus on your ears:

I am grateful that I can listen and learn

Now concentrate on your third eye, with is above your nose, just between and above your eyes:

I am grateful for my inteligence

And finally to your crown chakra, which is outside of your body. It is just above your head, where the helium balloon is located. You might say, there is nothing. But still, you can focus on that point above your head and lead the two energy streams there.

I am grateful for my wisdom

While doing this, the energy flow from your pelvic muscle will be the strongest. Maybe you even get a goose flesh, while letting it flow.

When you are done, you might enjoy your gratitude and the quietness inside of you. After a while, you can open your eyes and you will experience the world in a much more positive state. Go ahead and do so and enjoy!

Improve your way how you practice gratitude

How to Practice GratitudeYou can modify what you are grateful for. For example, if you have a pain point, add it to the meditation. Focus on it, let the energy flow into it. Be grateful that you can heal it consciously, only by the power of your thoughts. It is not about the technic, but only about what serves you best. So choose what you are grateful for what works and resonates the best.

And don’t forget to smile. In my opinion, most of the yogis take this much too serious! If you can think about something that makes you laugh out loud, even better:

Let the world hear that you are happy
and
that you are willing to rock her!

Sampoerna

Sampoerna – My First Indonesian

After I booked my flight to Indonesia, I recalled, that my former boss Johannes asked me during a BBQ: “Do you remember Sabine?” – “Yes, certainly I do.” – “She moved to Bali.” – “Oh no, I didn’t know that” and the conversation about Sabine was over.

But recalling Johannes statement, I thought it would be great to meet Sabine, while I am in Bali. But I only recalled her given name, Sabine. I had no contact details anymore, no old emails. All of this information was gone when I quit working for Johannes company.

My First Indonesia Trip

But thinking about it, I recalled that Sabine told me, that she wrote a book about managing the fear of flying. And so I asked Google to search for her book. I found the book “Flugangst”, her full name Sabine Engert, her webpage, and there was her email address. So I wrote her an email saying that Johannes told me about her living in Bali now, and about my planned trip to go there.

She responded within one day. And she was enthusiastic about me coming. She wrote: I am here already for 2 years and none of my German friends have visited me yet! I invite you to stay at my place. She even organized a driver to pick me up from the airport to bring me to her place.

Sabine, my first Indonesian point of contact

One of the first things Sabine asked me: “Klaus, I don’t remember if you smoke. Do you want an Indonesian cigarette? They are special, they have a clove aroma and the paper tastes sweet.” So I responded: “Usually I don’t, but I am always happy to try something special”. And so she shared one of her cigarettes with me.

Already with the first sip, I realized that I knew this special taste. It was on Christmas eve 1988 when I was on my first overseas trip. On a campground in Queensland in Australia, I met a German, who just came from Indonesia. He told about the wonderful atmosphere, low cost of living, how friendly and open-minded the Indonesians are, and how special the cigarettes taste. He brought some Sampoernas to Australia and shared them with me.

So I realized that I had a 28-year break between my first and my second Sampoerna experience!

Sampoerna, my first Indonesian cigarette

Since that day, it was a perfect way to enjoy the sunset at Echo beach with one Sampoerna, usually with a Bintang and spicy sweet corn from the BBQ.

Unfortunately, the number of Sampoernas increased over time. I kept having one with each Kopi Bali, after sex, when socializing, and even during my thinking time. Due to that, I lost the special feeling I had connected to the clove aroma and the sweet tasting paper. So I stopped smoking again because it was about to reduce my fitness and physical growth.

Sampoerna goes over the edge

That’s why I am limiting smoking Sampoernas only to my junk food day. And after sex, if my girlfriend enjoyed it too because that gives us an additional perfect way to connect.

By the way, the Indonesian word “sempurna” (which is pronounced the same way as Sampoerna) just means “perfect”.
