When You Begin A Game

WHEN YOU BEGIN A GAME… Dr. Pulsipher – “When you begin a game, you must first learn something about each of your opponents. Sometimes you will know quite a bit to begin with, but you can also ask people who know the opponent better than you do. You want to know if your opponent is…

Stop Setting Expectation Before The Event

Before any big festival or event, we get excited. So excited that we can barely wait for it. Our expectation increases along with excitement, and as a result the event itself doesn't feel grand. We don't enjoy the festival as much as we'd thought we'd enjoy. The festival ends, and you feel sad again that…

Be Aware of Expectation You Set

We get disappointed when an event doesn't occur the way want it to. Usually it’s cause of our own expectation, but sometimes it might not be our fault. Your friend assures he’ll arrive at your place at 12PM, but he doesn’t. That’s no fault of your own, but  you still get upset and angry at it,…

Eliminate Sadness

I usually feel sad when something doesn't happen the way I want it to, and then I bitch about it. After that, usually, I feel bad and anxious the whole day.

No Plans, Just Life

It's important to plan and consider making attainable goals to move further in your work, but I think the same approach is a bad idea while planning everyday life. I usually never plan things. I don't know what I'm going to do tomorrow. Heck, I don't even know what I'll do today. If something pops…

Yawn is a Yawn (The Difference Lies Within You)

You yawn when you feel lazy, and also, after you're tired working hard. The yawn is a yawn, but there's significant difference between the two yawns. A person who yawn's for laziness will never understand the yawn of a guy who yawns after working hard. In the same way, human experience should flow momentarily, with…

Let Go

I was writing about ‘Impossible is Not Nothing’ yesterday. I had written more than 1000 words and edited and re-edited. However, when I tried to publish it, something went wrong. And the post was lost. Maybe I had problem with the internet connection and nothing was saved. I felt frustrated. Didn’t want to write anything.…

You Will Never Win The Game of Comparison

Human needs are insatiable. When you fulfill a desire, an even grander desire arises. Say you make $50,000 per year. You move to a neighborhood where people's income average to $100,000 per year. Your $50,000 starts to seem too low. So, you move for more. You reach $100,000. Now you move to another neighborhood because…
