Concentrate, but How?

Hi everyone, I want to talk about study/work habits today because I just came out of a heavy study period as of yesterday and I noticed certain things that changed. We all strive for efficiency at work. The goal is to maximize the outcome and minimize the effort without cutting down on the results. If... Continue Reading →

Mental Food

Hi all, Today, I am going to talk about food again, but a different type, namely mental food, aka thoughts. If you want to read my earlier post about food-food, check out this link. We have all probably heard the phrase ‘We are what we eat’, right? That is why we should be careful about... Continue Reading →

A Mind Map towards understanding Yourself

Self-understanding it’s trickier than it might seem at first. If you don’t believe me, think about the thoughts that come through your mind. Do you know what triggers them? I’m often surprised by the sh*t that goes through my mind and that’s why I want to understand myself better. I need to know where those... Continue Reading →

Language and Mind/Culture

Hi everyone! I will do another language post, on a request long ago by Troy Headrick. Thanks Troy! I will talk about the relation between language and culture, which necessarily includes individual minds because culture happens when individual minds get together. This will be a bit longer but bear with meJ I will start with... Continue Reading →

The 10,000 Rule

Malcom Gladwell came up with this idea that it takes somewhere around 10000 hours of practicing to get good at something. I don’t know how does this sound for you, but it makes me freeze. I did the “math” and 10,000 hours translate into 417 days (24/7) or 1250 days if we work 8 hours... Continue Reading →

Work on Your Crazy Ideas

There is no doubt that crazy ideas shaped the world into the way it is right now and who knows how the world can evolve? I often wonder how those dudes and dudettes found the courage to work on those ideas, since I’m sure that everybody back then thought they were crazy. People are afraid... Continue Reading →

Successful People – Dan Lok

It’s been a while since I wrote a Successful People post. Although we both know that the definition of success is different from one person to another, there are some common core aspects throughout all of the definitions of success and they are all related to our perspective. I believe that Dan Lok is a... Continue Reading →

Money: Goal or Resource – Reblog

Unfortunately, almost daily something happens that reminds me how important money really are in this world. The car broke down? You need money to fix it. You have some guests? You need money to prepare/cook something nice for them. You need to go to a wedding? You need something to wear, you need some money... Continue Reading →

Are your priorities really priorities?

This is a sensible topic for me because I always thought I’ve set my priorities right. And it’s not that I haven’t done that, but sometimes I don’t act like it. Here is an example: I always considered this blog is a priority for me, but today I realized I’ve spent half an hour playing... Continue Reading →

Happiness is…

Those are some very interesting dots because they represent different things for different people. For some it’s a fat bank account, for others it’s a walk into the nature. Happiness is a journey, a destination and a forbidden word. It’s everything and nothing. For some it’s sweat and pain towards something whilst for others it’s... Continue Reading →

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...

Triggers are Everywhere

Did it ever happen to you to go peacefully through your day and them someone said some dumb sh*t that means something to you and that blew off your “peaceful day”? I’m sure it did, but how often does that happen? And why does it happen in the first place? It’s mainly because of our... Continue Reading →

Why is Fear so Important?

We’re always afraid of something. It’s part of our human nature and it’s a survival instinct. When we’re afraid of something we tend to avoid that thing or to run away from it, which will strengthen both the fear and our response to it. However, fear is just an emotion, just like joy. It’s not... Continue Reading →

Your Emotion is Your Energy

   Each action we make involves some energy, but where is all that energy coming from? You surely noticed that we feel more energized when we do certain actions compared with others even though no additional energy came in.    It seems that whenever we like something, we somehow find more energy to invest in...
