The first 1000 blog posts are difficult…

I haven’t written about blogging for some time. However, today’s blog post from Seth Godin, an entrepreneur and an author of 18 books and a long-time blogger with 7000 posts to his credit (never missed a day), reminded me to talk about my blogging journey. Seth has been encouraging people to blog. “Daily blogging is […]

Six-hour working day

We are overworked, stressed, and not living the lives we are meant to live. Mere four hundred years ago, there were no jobs. People did what they wanted to do and earned their living by creating value in their unique way. Then came the industrial age. Big factories came into existence which started employing people […]

Happiness is may not be good for the economy but might be good for the planet

The above excerpt is from Matt Haig’s book “Reasons to Stay Alive,” and there is a lot of truth in it. Business thrives and flourishes on one main human trait: dissatisfaction.

A better question

I am reading Mark Mason’s book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck where I got struck by an interesting point. Mark writes, when asked “What do you want out of life?” most people respond by saying something like, “I want to be happy, have a great family and a good job.” This response […]

Where the day has gone?

You are hoping for a solid day’s work. Brainstorming and writing in the morning, editing and polishing in the afternoon and reading at night. Not too much to ask for especially when you have the whole day to yourself. Your day starts well, you mind-map three articles and write three pages before I taking the […]

Happiness is overrated

Why is everyone so obsessed with being happy? Why can’t we accept that happiness is a feeling which comes and goes just like sadness, anger, love, and frustration? None of these feelings last forever, not even love. Why would happiness? How many of us have stayed in a state of bliss forever? We all have […]
