Have you ever wondered what would happen if you started saying “yes” to everything? If you just removed the word “no” from your vocabulary altogether and shrugged off any internal doubts or anxiety? That’s exactly what Michael Buchinger did. And when he found himself in hospital just six days after adopting this newfound philosophy, he may have asked himself whether it was all worth it.
It’s no secret that life has a way of settling into the same old routine once we reach adulthood. With the freedom of college or high school behind us, the demands of a career set in, and things can get pretty monotonous. It’s important, then, to find new ways to keep life interesting.
And in 2015 Buchinger came up with a plan to do just that. An author living in Vienna, Austria, Buchinger hosts a YouTube channel with over 150,000 subscribers and also performs regular cabaret shows. But even with all that going on, he was still determined to change his life in other ways.
