About Me

Are You in the Right Place?

Check out the following labels and ask yourself this…

“…have I ever identified with any of these?”

  • Procrastinator
  • Perfectionist
  • Over-thinker
  • Analysis Paralysis
  • Over-planner
  • Waiting for the “perfect moment”
  • Introvert
  • Over-analyzer

…You have?

Good, that means you’ve come to the right place.

What Have You Been Waiting For?

Do you know what each of those labels have in common?


In each option you choose to either think or wait, but not act.

“Is that really a problem?” you ask.


Taken too far, each label listed guarantees that you’ll struggle to accomplish your goals.

You’re here to swing that balance in favor of action.

Why Should I Learn This From One Way Thoughts?

One Way Thoughts has a unique view point on “the big picture…”

…we ignore it.

Well to be more specific, we use a small picture focus to bust through our inactive nature.

You see, I’ve learned through my own battles with over-thinking that the big picture causes me to do one thing…


We already have a tendency to let our thoughts carry us away, and the big picture only makes it worst.

We get caught up in the fantasy of where we want to be, leading to more and more procrastination down the line.

And on the other side of things, focusing on the big picture makes our goals seem impossibly far away…

Just as bad for the non-action taker.

These are the lessons that I’ve personally learned on the journey to defeat my inactive ways.

What Will You Learn to Beat Non-action?

You will learn how to:

  • Take more action and reduce “useless” thinking
  • Be independent
  • Defeat perfectionism
  • Embrace your path (regardless of difficulty)
  • Push past comfort zones
  • Be an action-oriented introvert
  • Thrive in your own unique way
  • Leave a sheltered life to develop useful life experiences
  • Make failure into a useful tool and become your best friend

What Will One Way Thoughts Focus on?

Emphasis will always be placed on taking daily small steps.


Because it doesn’t get easier than a single daily step.

By looking down…

…and giving full attention to that one daily step, it’ll all become clear.

All those tiny actions will eventually become a gigantic goal that you’ve accomplished.

Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Ericson Ay Mires and welcome to One Way Thoughts.

Freelance blogger for hire (Me in the center with my girlfriend and buddy at the electric run in San Francisco.)

Me in the center with my girlfriend and buddy at the electric run in San Francisco.

I’ve been into personal development for the past few years and have learned a lot about myself in that time. I’ve learned about the way I think, how I act, what I value, and what my weaknesses are.

But what was the biggest takeaway I gained after all this time? That to not take action is the worst thing you can do for yourself.

Action is the foundational key to all success.

Pablo Picasso

There was a period after high school in which I didn’t really know what to do with myself. On the outside, it would appear that I was simply lazy or lacking in ambition.

But that wasn’t completely accurate, I was simply unaware of my place in the world.

I never really did much with myself in high school and didn’t have much experience being independent. I didn’t know how important it was to create experiences for myself and how much of an effect it would have on giving me a direction to work towards.

But now I know better.

I understand how important it is to take the initiative in life, and to take consistent action towards my goals. Just as important is to embrace my failures, to learn from them and quickly get back to the action.

I want to share these lessons I’ve learned with you, the reader, so that you will not make the same mistakes as I have.
