Forgot? Forget! Keep Going

"Forgot? Forget! Keep Going" is a rule I use while I establish new habits. Habits need consistency to build up. At the initial stage of forming habit, we usually don't miss any days. But as time builds up, motivation fades away and we slowly start to move away from our habit building goal. During this period,…

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…

Afraid of Success

What's the worst thing that can happen? Travel and end up in North Korean Jail? Limited water, limited food, limited life and plain struggle? But I'm not afraid of that.

But since people generally look crying as a sign of weakness, we try to refrain from it as much as possible. By suppressing…

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…

Avoiding the Downfall Chain

I was about to not write anything today. I'm very sick. I can barely lift my hands and fingers to type this. My head hurts as hell. I had severe stomach pain last night and today I woke up tired and without energy. I should be taking rest. I have been writing everyday and I…
