Cannot Stop Thinking?

I have been meditating for a while just to make myself feel good that I'm meditating. I didn't see any change in my thoughts and feelings. Today I thought of doing a 20 minute serious meditation. I kept alarm in exactly 20 minutes and started meditating. The main goal for me was to not think…

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…

Decluttering and Letting Go

Right now, this very moment, I'm just writing and letting my thoughts flow. This usually doesn't happen. I always think of various other stuff I should be working on while performing a particular task. Other days, I would open my laptop, check e-mails, blog subscriptions, my blog stats, Facebook, Twitter, messages, etc. I would then…

Abundance of Motivation

Almost always, we are inspired or influenced by something and then we set goal to achieve it. We feel highly motivated to work on it. But the motivation eventually fades away and we stop working on the goal we set up initially. We set up goals but struggle to achieve it, mostly because motivation is…

Twinge of Responsibility

I have been writing blog posts frequently. I have no idea how many people read it. Some days ago Radhika posted a blog post called "What am I consuming?" I saw my website listed there. Almost all other websites are of people who I think highly of. As soon as I saw that she was also…

Gun Pointed at You

We were wishing new year 2014, and now it's already mid-april. 4 months have passed since that day. Time travels fast. Every new year or new month, I try and improve one aspect of my life. But I fail. I have constantly written about my failure regarding resolutions. That's why I have resisted making any…

Review Philosophies Before Living by Them

I have learned a whole lot of philosophies, techniques and teachings from books, essays and posts written by lots of specialists in their specific fields. I live by their principles and writings after I read their books or articles. But, it eventually fades away. I slowly start to move towards my own rules and way…

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…

Figuring Out The Perfect Reading Workflow

I have been reading lots of books. I had planned to read a book every week about a year ago, but I failed at it. So I never pushed myself hard to read books. I can, of course but I won't be able to work on my projects. This month, I should be focusing on…

Not Letting the Idea Muscle Atrophy

I have been writing lots of blog post since February. It seems pretty difficult to write blog post everyday, but it isn't. You need to figure out just one idea during 24 hours. That's it. And human beings literally think thousands of times during the day. If we can just capture one idea from that…
