Busy Without Actually Being Busy

When I didn't have a cell phone, I would just think about a topic and dwell on it. That would make it easier for me to write something the other day. But now, I have been distracted by my cell phone. Either I'm using my laptop or cell phone. I don't have free time for…

I Actually Finished Reading Musashi

Sebastian Marshall and Tynan highly recommended the book "Musashi". I thought of reading it since it was highly recommended. I checked the book and figured it was almost 1,000 pages long - nine hundred and something pages. I thought it was impossible to read that book. I had never read any books so big. I…

Rinse and Repeat

I usually feel demotivated to organize and work on self improvement after I fail to master it. I try and do it again, and fail again. It then starts to get very frustrating. I was aware that I need to work on it constantly, but not sure how much. I have been doing the same…

Sitting is the New Smoking

"Why not even exercise will undo the harm of sitting all day—and what you can do about it" got me thinking about how much I sit everyday. I sit almost whole day in front of my laptop. Everything I do is on my laptop: writing, programming, brainstorming, entertainment, reading, journaling, creating, learning, etc. And I…

Set Small Goals Everyday

I was just reading Radhika's new post, "What do you deserve" and found this: Remember, set small goals everyday, and then build on the momentum of completion. For example, if you want to read a book, tell yourself you only have to read one page. Chances are, once you start, you'll keep reading. As soon…

Superficial Set of Standards

Society has set of standards which defines what you should be like to be successful at something. There are basically two superficial standards which we desperately try to fulfill. We have believed that those two superficial…

It Will Fade Away Eventually

I suddenly joined 6 day meditation course while reading "The Power of Now". I took the course two years ago as well. This time I had specific purpose for taking the course. I wanted to stop my mind from wandering and thinking. My mind was thinking on auto-pilot. I figured that out while reading "The…

It’s Difficult to Come Back

Last week, I joined a 6 day happiness course. It was intense and fun. I was solely focused on it. I didn't do anything except for stuff relating to that course. Which means, I didn't write, speak on camera, program, move projects forward, etc. I did nothing. I was solely focused on that course because…

Not Writing for Fame

I don't do aggressive promotion of my blog posts. The chances of people finding my blog posts are pretty low. I don't care about that, though. I'm writing this for myself, to improve life of people who read it, to improve my writing, and finally improve myself as a whole. I know I have written…
