Mazatlan Seashore

Going To Mazatlan, Mexico

Quick geographic and/or tourist mexican lesson for you guys!

I live in Culiacan, Sinaloa Mexico.

Culiacan is the capital city of Sinaloa and Mazatlan is a touristic city on Sinaloa as well.

And well I’m going to a quick mini trip vacation in Mazatlan for the weekend and I won’t be around until next Monday.

This is happening in two hours and I still haven’t even packed my things.

I’m NOT taking my laptop with me since I don’t intend to record any training videos while having a few coronas!

But I am taking a digital camera, a flipcam and a few other things in case I need to record something for you over there.

…see? I think about you! ;-)

Mazatlan is a quick two hour drive by car and a three long boring hour drive by bus from the city I currently live in, which as I told you before, is Culiacan.

We used to go there a lot before but somehow we just stopped going.

I believe sometimes the violence is pretty high but whenever we go, we normally try not stay too late on the streets, basically we go out for a bite at some restaurant, party for a while, then get some extra beers and head up for our hotel room and that’s it, at least for the night.

So we pretty much take care of ourselves as we can!

Taking Breaks Once In A While

Anyway, I am (or was) in the middle of creating my first training course and I will have to leave it as it is right now, as this is a special date since a very close friend of mine is getting married and I just can’t miss it!

Taking these quick getaways from my workplace have proven to be nothing but inspiring whenever I need to brainstorm for new and fresh ideas.

Perhaps if you watched the video inside the post about Getting Mentored, Gurus and Flying Solo then you know I have been making a LOT of changes in my life recently.

This of course, includes getting rid of a few obstacles, getting rid of the things that make me unproductive and trying to exploit those that bring results.

I am willing to take a good rest on this quick leisure/wedding trip and I just hope we don’t lose my main man before he makes it to his own wedding (watching the “hangover” movie gave us so many ideas haha).

My Lovely Girlfriend and Sergio Felix (me)

My girlfriend which never wants to be showcased (hope she doesn’t kills me haha)
and myself in a Mazatlan’s bar

I wish you all nothing but the best and stay put for next week!

I intend to start releasing a LOT of training stuff on several formats, start guest posting on blogs, documenting my first product creation process and so much more so I hope you’ll stick around, it’s going to be definitely lots of fun!

Last but not least important, take care and don’t do anything I would never do for the weekend ok?

Salud! ;-)

    I hope you two have a great time and the wedding went off without a hitch. I hope to hear the results upon your return.

    Your girlfriend is beautiful Sergio, great taste, but you already knew that. So maybe we’ll see a video or two, just of you guys having a good time!

    Either way, have a great time and glad that work is not on your mind this weekend.

      Hey Adrienne,

      Everything went perfect with the wedding and whew we definitely had a blast there.

      We arrived yesterday in the afternoon and funny that now we need some vacations from the mini vacation LOL but I’m ready to get some serious work done.

      Thank you for comment and your nice compliment!!

      My girlfriend saw it on her smartphone and had a huge ear to ear smile haha thanks! (I owe you one)

      Take care and have an amazing start of week! ;-)

    Hey Sergio,
    I fully agree with you that a change of location is good for encouraging productivity.
    I also find that when I go away somewhere – even for a day or a weekend – that this somehow inspires me to have many new ideas which I don’t get when I stay at home.
    I am sure you had a great weekend.
    Maybe you had too many beers.
    But I am sure you are back working hard now.

      Hey Patrick,

      Totally agree with you, getting out of the routine works like a charm to get some great ideas.

      It happens to me whenever I travel, when I jog, while I’m in the shower LOL so I believe it’s not completely related to traveling per se but more about leaving the workplace and NOT thinking about work!

      The only drawback is that I wasn’t carrying my flipcam at the wedding (I was carrying TOO MUCH stuff already on my pockets and suit) and I forgot to take it with me a few times but overall I did manage to take some pictures which I’ll try to upload later.

      We definitely had an amazing time and you can’t never have “too many beers” Pat, that’s not how it works! LOL j/k buddy!

      Take care and have a great start of week man, looking forward to catch up with your blog ;-)

    Ahh Sergio Corona is the best, I love it! I also sound like an alcoholic lol.

    I agree with Patrick, you always come up with new ideas and thoughts when you are away chilling out and relaxing. Your brain switches into another mode and becomes more relaxed but more inventive (well it does for me any way).

    I recently returned from Spain where I took the revised edition of the 4 hour working week by Time Ferris. Loved the book, juts chilling on the beach. Never had a phone or notepad, but borrowed a pencil from the waitress and filled the back page with notes.

    Have a great Amigo

      Hey Daniel,

      So you like Corona’s too, smart man!! ;-)

      And I agree with you two guys. Being relaxed is key to get creative, not when we’re actually trying to be creative… funny how the brain works right?

      You were recently in Spain? Wow man that’s cool, I was there not too long ago and absolutely fell in love with the place.

      Something you won’t believe, is that I still haven’t read Tim Ferris book. I’ve seen mixed feeling reviews about it but I’m going to get a copy anyway and read it so I can have my own opinion about it.

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving your first comment, hope to read many more in the future and I’ll work on that 7 Link Challenge too!

      Take care and have a super productive week, speak soon! ;-)

        You can see where some people may have mixed reviews about the 4 hour WW as I got the feeling you really needed a great product to begin with to live the same dream, however it is still quite inspirational.

        One super productive week coming up. I have 20 or so videos to complete 4 MP3 and a whole bunch of website development to do. You could say I’m going to be busy :-D

          Hey Daniel,

          Man I don’t know if I should envy you or cheer you up! haha

          Good luck with all your tasks mate, I have a lot to do as well but not as outlined as you do! ;-)

    Sergio,

    I hope you both are having a great time in Mazatlan.

    It is always good to take a short vacation sometimes. I find that I come back rejuvenated and ready to work.

    Looking forward to your training you are coming out with.

      Hi Dee Ann,

      Getting out of the routine certainly helps quite a lot!

      We already made it back home, I’m crafting a new blog post for tomorrow with the details.

      Thank you for your interest and for your kind comment, take care Dee Ann! ;-)

    Wow Sergio that is good for you. It is always great to be on vacation and you have a lovely girlfriend too! As you promised, update us with the lovely pictures from your tour and don’t forget to tell us everything that happened (I mean everything!)

    My only worry is that be careful as you have already acknowledged the crime rate. Stay safe and continue posting such great stories. Catch ya later!

      Hey Martin,

      Thank you for your kind compliment!

      I’ll work out something for today, have been a bit ill but I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to write something good.

      Crime rates over here are ridiculous high so even having the extra care about it, no one is safe (which is a good motivator to make it big and flee the place).

      Anyway, thank you for stopping by and leaving your first comment, hopefully next time you leave a backlink to your blog so we can interact more!

      Hey Rochelle,

      Mexico is indeed beautiful, the only thing I’d recommend before visiting it s to pick the cities with a bit lower crime.

      Thank you for your kind comment, I’m pretty sure my girlfriend will have a big smile from your comment as well.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your first comment, take care! ;-)

      Aww what a nice and kind compliment!

      Thank you for that Dee, I am feeling a little bit better, hence I just wrote a new post… finally!

      The trip was mean to relax and I got a cold (sickness) from it! LOL

      Take care and thank you for all your comments, really appreciate them! ;-)

    Mama Mia! I hope you have a blast. You know what they say? Whatever happens in Mexico stays in Mexico…unless you have facebook. Anyways, it’s always goo to take a break from life and try to find the medium between re-energizing and relaxation. Once you find that balance you’re ready to kickstart and begin your grind.

    I was recently reading a book entitled, “ReWork,” In which it states that to be successful one must always find a way to take a significant break.

      Hey Jonathan,

      I did have a great time and LOL yeah I guess we need to be very cautious of Facebook in parties!

      ReWork… never heard of that one, going to check that out.

      Thank you for stopping by and sharing a bit of your insights, take care man, all the best! ;-)

      Aww thank you Linda!

      Yeah we were not getting married LOL a friend of ours was!

      And yes you’re right, I’m making a training course but I can’t say much yet, it’s not going to be a huge thing, just to get things started basically!

      Thanks again for all the support and take care Linda, looking forward to speak again! ;-)

    Hi Sergio!

    Congratulations on the wedding and it sure seems like you had a great time in Mazatlan- and looks like a nice place to visit as well :)

    You have a beautiful girlfriend and you both look wonderful together. I guess you should forget everything and just have a great time on your trip- that is if you are still there. :)

      Hi Harleena,

      Yes it is beautiful there but sadly it has some high crime rates as well.

      Thank you for the lovely comment about my girlfriend too! ;-)

      I’m already back in town, I just brought a cold from Mazatlan with me lol

      Take care and have an amazing day! ;-)
