Pain of Regret or Pain of Discipline?

When you first start out on a journey to accomplish something, the biggest success factor is to be persistence at it. Persistence is difficult. It's easier to carry out your tasks in the initial stage because you are motivated. Persistence comes easy during that time. But when things start to get redundant, your motivation fades away,…

Lessons from Crying Guy

I was sitting alongside the street watching vehicles pass by when I saw a guy stop his bike. He stopped and stood there for sometime until a woman arrived (who he had probably been waiting for). As soon as she arrived, he started crying. He walked out of his bike and kept standing on the roadside crying. They talked…

Self Trust

To create or bend a situation in my favor, I used to lie to people most of the time. The situation would then favor me in the short run, but I'd have to suffer in the long run. If you lie once, you'll need to remember the lie every time. Not only the lie, but…

Titles Dont Matter

After I write a post, my writing ends up nowhere near the title that I wrote before writing the post. The blog post takes different route from the title. Titles are only there to keep my focus intact with the post. It doesn't matter. In similar fashion, goals are there to make you focus on…
