The thing that I dreamt of as a little boy

Are you supposed to have dreams at 36? Isn’t that for children? Wasn’t that supposed to be killed in primary school where they teach you what you should do and how you should do it? What about us who don’t fit into that mold and who still think that this world has more to offer than show up at work, show up at home, get paid once a month, repeat? We don’t belong to the

What is critique?

Are there human relations without critique? The critique rarely says anything about you. Instead, it gives away a lot about the critic’s perception of you, or about their perception of something you did or failed to do. If your actions are always rightful, there is nothing to worry about because you know you did exactly what needed to be done. That’s why it’s important knowing what’s right and acting in the right manner. People will

Change one thing and improve yourself

According to Jordan B Peterson, if you want to change yourself, pick one thing that you want to improve and work on it until you’re satisfied. When picking that one thing, you need to think carefully; you might want to think how important that thing is, because changing your hairstyle probably won’t do any good to you, but changing your time management skills will definitely have a huge impact on your life. And, time management

Sleep

is the most important activity in a day. Imagine how stupid nature would be if it had made us spend the third of our lives doing something completely unnecessary or even moderately important. Two main goals for living beings are to reproduce and survive and sleep is one of these things that helps us survive. Yes, we are vulnerable during sleep and predators can’t kill us without any problems, but that’s why we evolved to

You are enough

When I was a kid, and when I attempted to do anything, my parents would compare me to someone who was a master in that field. They had the best intentions when they compared my painting attempt with Picasso, or my writing attempt with Dostoyevsky, but we all know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. When you say to your child that she is a little Mozart, the first time she

Vacuum cleaner

Certainly in your life there are people put you down; as if they were sucking up all your energy. If you meet these people for lunch or coffee, usually after that meeting you start to reconsider all your life decisions, including something trivial like – did I really need to see the latest Spiderman; what if it really is a trash and if it’s not worth watching? You run into these banal dilemmas because whatever

Different Paths

Although two different people may have the same goals, they are very likely to be on different paths or different parts of the same path. Let’s say two people want to lose 20 pounds, one will increase physical activity, the other will change diet, the third will apply both strategies, but the diet and exercise will be completely different from the exercise and diet of the first two people. The case is same when someone

Engaging in Harmful Activities

We all know how harmful cigarettes are, but there are people who still smoke. Some claim that cigarettes calm them down, others claim that they find it difficult to leave cigarettes, and most leave cigarettes tomorrow. Although nicotine is physically addictive, we are more dependent on serotonin and dopamine, the so-called happiness hormone that is secreted after we receive a dose of nicotine. For some strange reason, every time we bring in nicotine, our body

Shuold I stay or should I go?

This time I’m not talking about whether or not I want to write a blog. I’ve been under a lot of stress these days; my site was hacked; I went to Beijing to make a new passport, and we all know how stressful it is to deal with government institutions and how enjoyable it is to spend the whole day on the train. Nobody likes to do what they don’t have to do, which is
