Doing Lots of Different Things

I have been going through lots of change in my life right now. I've grown past my old self. Writing was very important goal for me some years ago. It still is, but other interests like photography and film-making is taking over it. There's always a change in perspective and interests in life. If not,…

Improving Along with the Blog

I hate the blog post I wrote yesterday. It was uninteresting, had no underlying lessons, and was just a waste of a blog post. However, I don't regret it though. My first instinct was to delete the post, or write again. I didn't do both. Instead, I thought of posting it as it is. It's…

Stop Craving Short Term Satisfaction

The only time we regret our action is when it's not yielding the result we want in the long run. My friend had birthday some days ago. After celebrating his birthday, we thought of eating cakes. There was a store nearby which offered 40% discount after 8 PM. It was already 9:30 PM when we…

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…

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.

Learning to Not Regret

We usually end up in situation where every possible path we can take leads to regret. Whatever you do, you'll regret at the end just to realize if taking the other path would lead somewhere better. There are two things that can happen when you choose a road: Either you'll regret, or you wont. And…
