In a fast-moving world,

where everything must be quick, efficient and cheap, we are used to do different things at the same time, communicating to different people in different channels about different topics and trying to concentrate on many things at the same time. We try to be omnipresent in order to not missing out something. The result is that we lose the ability to focus on one thing for a longer time. But if you want to achieve something significant exactly this ability is needed.

One year ago,

I read a very interesting TIME article* by Cal Newport that caught my interest. I started to observe myself on how often I am distracted by things and keep myself from doing the things I want to do. Realizing compared with other people around me I might be quite focused already but:

I am a watchmaker.

… making watches by hand. The ability to focus is very vital to make great watches. In the timepieces of my current collection there is a lot of craftsmanship and time invested to make and finish them. To be honest more than I thought in the beginning. In the future I want to make the entire movement by hand. There are a lot more skills to learn to achieve that goal. But one key is to improve my skill of “focus”.

How much time do you spend focusing on the very things you want to do? How long can you sit still doing the one thing?

Have a great day by keeping your focus!

When God created time, he made plenty of it (Irish and Celtic saying). Why then it feels like we always don’t have enough time.

When God made time, he made plenty of it (Irish and Celtic saying). Why then it feels like we always don’t have enough time for the things we want to do and for the people we want to spent time with? You can give an easy answer and say: “Time flies!” and its true! Tempus fugit!

Several years ago, I realized something about myself: I am highly motivated, when I can learn something new. It energizes me to do something I never did before and I don’t yet have the skills to do. It’s not only the result that challenges me. But moreover, the process of improving the skills and finally gaining the ability to do it, is very appealing to me.

When was the last time you did something for the first time? It’s a new start, a new year. It’s a new day and a new chance.

May be 50 percent of your new year’s resolution you gave up already. Or you did not even have some this year. Don’t worry! You don’t need a new year to start again. Often, it’s not the future we are afraid of. Its repeating the past that makes us anxious.

Steffen Cornehl repairs and restores antique mechanical watches – He is crazy about time

… for more than 20 years now. Big historical watches in museums in St. Petersburg and small disctintive pocket watches and wrist watches, that are very dear to their owners. Crazy about time.

It is the artisanal challenge that attracts Steffen Cornehl as well as the creative possibilities that come along with mastering the different crafts. Along the way, there is still a lot to discover and to learn. The current status becomes manifest in our current collection. The future starts today.
