Summer is coming to an end. Experimenting time is over and I'm wrapping up three new projects. It's time to leave Vietnam, come back to France, and say goodbye to my family to seclude myself in a new land.

This Autumn will be harsh. I'll run out of savings in a years time, I have to focus on growth. One thing you learn by playing sports: growth results from a healthy amount of stress balanced with rest. My plan for the following months is to settle down in a city in Eastern Europe to live, work, and meditate by myself.

I want to operate a breakthrough before the start of the Christmas holidays, which is about a hundred and twenty days from now on. This breakthrough is called Product/Market fit, and it's going to take a lot of work. It's time to accelerate. Time to ship more, to write more, to talk more, to be more.

I've been a full-time digital nomad for more than a year now. I know what works for me and what doesn't. I'm currently looking for a quiet Airbnb studio with Wi-Fi, a kitchen, a washing machine, and a gym nearby. A $500 rent top, no shared facilities. I'll just take the simplest apartment I can find, with the best Internet speed. I wanted to go to Istanbul, but Romania appears as a better option: already been there, among the very best telecom infrastructure in Europe, and cheap living costs.

The idea I want to follow is simple: I can force my luck by increasing my iteration speed. To do that, I need an environment where I can spend long hours focusing on my work. I also need a place where I can unwind and rest as easily without any unnecessary distraction - draining people, mindless consumption, hot temperatures.

I'll explain my framework and the operational steps I'm taking in a future post. Will you become my accountability partner?

    @basilesamel - Baz - I just asked two people to be my accountability buddy and it felt like I asked them for money.

    I would like to be your accountability buddy too if there is a spot available. I just finished setting up my goal for the 12 week year and this will be my first iteration. In that process - it's a once a week check in. How are you doing it?

      @basilesamel - In makerlog? It is the same. Keni.
      I haven't started to use the makerlog yet. But I have joined. This should push me to use it regularly.

      @valentino @brianball maybe we could create a channel on telegram to keep each other accountable with our respective projects?
