Student, artist, writer & tutor
I'm Aleksander (Alex, Alek, Olek), a student from Kraków, Poland.
I love asking questions and helping others. I'm interested in art, philosophy, psychology, urban planning, productivity & effective education.
Above you'll find a few quick links to my top pages & projects.
Below you'll find my current projects, ideas and more about me.
Let's chat. If you're ever in Poland, let me know. Or let's connect virtually
is the way I realize my ultimate life goal of helping people. If you're a student of any age, and you want to move the needle, let's talk.
is my personal blog, where I try to write something thoughful every single week. I do often fail at that though.
The Productive Student
is a YouTube channel, website & Discord server for students who want to improve their productivity, master deep work & manage their school-life balance (links coming soon).
is my daily blog in Polish.
is my personal, weekly newsletter. In it, I share thoughts, observations & stories from my quest of finding The Balance.
is a collection of communities based on various platforms all about the all-in-one productivity app called Notion.
I figured that doing this section in the form of questions and answers is the best, here they are:
Who are you?
First of all, I'm a human being. Right?
I was born in Kraków, the second biggest city in Poland on a rainy Tuesday in June. I've lived there ever since.
I'm a human version of Google Maps. I know all the countries. And their capitals.
Flags learning in progress. I love sharing completely useless, but fun geographical facts.
I'm an artist. Mainly a photographer. I used to share all my work on Instagram, now keeping it mostly for myself & friends (contact me if you're interested!).
Oh, and did I mention that I love productivity? I'm very invested in becoming a better learner and teacher. I've been a Montessori student my whole life, so effective/alternative education is my vibe.
There are many other things I am. It's hard to summarize everything into this tiny website.
What do you want to do in life?
Help others. Give what I have and listen.
Can you help me?
I 100% want to. If you're struggling with productivity/schoolwork/motivation, or are working on a project that I could help with, contact me.
I like you, can we connect?
Why do you never show your face online?
With all the deepfakes, manipulations & privacy issues, sharing your face (arguably the most personal thing you own) doesn't sound like a fun idea to me. Although I am a real human being, and we can connect!
