4 Reasons Why Sleep Matters!

Since yesterday I posted something about dreams, I’d continue the “series” with the reasons why sleep matters so much. Since we sleep somewhere around one third of our life, I think it’s important to find out what’s its purpose, don’t you think? If you’re a human, you sleep. However, let’s get a more “professional” look... Continue Reading →

Where do frustrations come from?

Our inner universe is so complex that we end up having different thoughts and emotions without knowing where the hell they come from. Obviously, that’s where frustrations come from, but what actually triggers them? What creates them? Is there anything we can do about them? Should we do something about them? I believe we need...

The Courage of Being Yourself – Reblog

We can learn a lot from nature (I guess that’s why it’s called Mother Nature) regarding how unique can something be. Think about trees, for example. There are not two identical trees in the whole wide world. It’s impossible to have the branches exactly the same and the flowers/fruits/seeds/roots with the same size. Each tree...

Attention (semantic) seekers…

You have somebody's full attention! Now, let us shed our ideas of extraversion and introversion and focus on the attention itself. How would you want to be considered in their eyes? Interesting, Intriguing, or Entertaining? Is there is a difference? (Come on, it's me. IMO of course there is.) I've always wanted to be interesting,... Continue Reading →

The Funny side of Psychology

“How can you say that? It’s not funny to have psychological issues! You’re a horrible little human being!” Yes, I am! But psychology is more than therapy. It’s about humans and humans aren’t boring. I know because I’m part of human race (believe me, I AM). Okay, so what’s funny about psychology? Well, think about... Continue Reading →

   This movie is about a dude that gets his hands on a remote control which controls his reality (you can find more about it here). He can pause (stop time) whenever he wants, he can fast forward the moments he doesn’t want to be in, he can put people on mute and so on.... Continue Reading →

Quotes by Epictetus

   In one book I was reading I found a quote by Epictetus and I liked it so much that I started to search for more. This dude had some deep thoughts about things that are still valid. Here are the ones I love the most.    “There is only one way to happiness and... Continue Reading →

Pointless (or not) Quotes

   Today I decided to let some experts talk so I put together a list of quotes that I found interesting.    “Failure is just an opportunity to start again in a smarter way.” – Henry Ford      “Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill      “You should...

Successful People – Mel Robbins

   Mel Robbins is mostly known for her book The 5 Second Rule which is a revolutionary way to “hijack” your brain so we can do things. I think she is successful because she found a great way to overcome the habit of hitting the snooze button in the morning and the habit of procrastination.... Continue Reading →

The 80/20 Rule

   Do you ever wonder how much our actions really matter? Well, in 1895 Vilfredo Pareto wrote about this. According to him, 80% of what we’re doing brings us 20% of the results we have, and 20% of what we’re doing brings us 80% of the results we have.    WTF, right? I think that... Continue Reading →

Why do we get angry?

   Today I came across an interesting theory about why we’re getting angry most of the times. In his book The Brain and Emotional Intelligence: New Insights, Daniel Goleman talks about the fact that we have two ”bosses” in our head which controls the way we see things and we make decisions. There is the... Continue Reading →

   This movie is about a young drummer who gets to be mentored by an instructor who keeps pushing him to get better using an interesting technique (you can read more about it here).

Movie Thoughts – The Prestige (2006)

   This movie is about two magicians that compete to determine which has the best magic trick (you can read more about it here). I found it interesting how we can get obsessed in pursuing something we think we want and because of this obsession we don’t realize what we’re sacrificing along the way.   ... Continue Reading →

Why do we have nightmares?

   I think that the reason is the same as for dreams (eliminating some thoughts and feelings). Through our whole life we’re encounter many thoughts and feelings we might not be aware of. They might not be important for us to let them through our conscious mind or maybe they are too strong and we’re... Continue Reading →
