My 1st Post

Welcome to my first ever post, I guess every journey has a beginning and mine is no exception. My name is Anthony and I’m a man who wants to be a better man, live a better life and do better things. Sounds pretty straight-forward on paper, right? In reality it’s a lot more complex and I’m sure you’ll know what I mean. After years of working 50 hours + weeks with only a few measly hours left for our downtime, after giving so much of ourselves to our boss and to our responsibilities;  it’s very easy to lose a little track of what we truly want as individuals and to ask ourselves the important questions.

Did you ever decide to choose the ‘path’ that you are on now, or did you simply just accept the easy option? Life is weird and the vast majority of us would rather feel constantly miserable than take the harder route and make the big changes which could eventually lead to our happiness. Well I’m not signing up to that class and I urge you to join me.

I’m not going to lie; it’s not going to be easy. Here I sit, as a man who is disillusioned with life who has committed to leaving the comforts of all I have ever known, leaving my comfy, first world country in an attempt to take the giant leap of creating the life that I have always dreamed of. And the big fat truth is;

I have no idea how I’m going to do it!

I believe that the above statement is the main reason why people don’t strive for better and why people let their dreams fall by the wayside. The fear of the unknown is a scary concept but it’s no excuse to bury your head in the sand.

The future of Manvsclock: Before the clock on my sidebar hits zero, (365 days from now) I aim to have by this point:

  • Quit my job
  • Leave England on a one-way ticket to a faraway destination (Forever)
  • Eradicate my £16,000 personal debt
  • Find a way of making enough full-time online income
  • Travel The World

Consider this public accountability starting from…now!!!

Hi, I'm Anthony!

In November of 2010, I took on a mammoth challenge against the clock in a quest to upgrade my miserable life. I went out of my comfort zone and turned it all around. Ten years later, I’m completely location independent…
