Nothing is to be gained if you don’t step out of your comfort zone and do something different every once in a while.
Does it make you uncomfortable? Do it anyway.
Are you afraid of the consequences if you’re wrong? Do it anyway.
Are you uncertain? Do it anyway.

How you gaze at the summit!
So awestruck, it’s almost silly.
The path to the top will only grow longer if you belittle yourself.
A mountain peak does not exist to show how small you are,
It’s there to provide you with a goal.
If you have time to wander down a side path,
You should use it to climb up instead.
It won’t be an easy climb.
You may have to spend your entire lifetime.
Step by step, steady as a turtle…
It’s possible that you’ll never reach the top,
You may burn out halfway,
But one thing is certain:
You’ll have a better view.

It’s New Year’s day! It’s that time of the year when people go about trying to make their resolutions for the new year, and finding ways to stay on track. Time and again, I’ve done the same, only to break them in a week or two! For once, I decided to sit down and try to figure out why.
The experience has been exciting in itself, but that’s a topic I may come back to later. It turns out that the problem lay more in my inability to make proper resolutions, than in keeping them! This really stood out in the resolutions where I was:

  • Trying to change too many things at once
  • Aiming for something I’m not passionate about
  • Setting the bar too high
  • Making resolutions which don’t translate into actual Tasks
  • Being vague about the goals

Keeping these in mind, I’ve made my resolutions for 2013. I hope I can stay on track a little longer this time around.

Happy New Year, Folks!

The first step. Sometimes that’s all it takes; sometimes it doesn’t make an inkling of a difference. Either way, one thing’s certain—you’ll never know until you take it! If you do, and get nowhere, at the very least you know that you did not let the chance go by.

The thing is, people do not like to take chances; they’re afraid of change, and of failure. When that happens, I reckon the best thing to do is ask yourself “what’s the worst that can happen?” If the answer doesn’t look too grim, go ahead and take that chance. You may not be able to figure out what all strange new possibilities arise due to that one small step!

There are 7 billion people now
Flitting about their daily lives
Working like drones for a queen
Oblivious to the world around them

Amongst the bourgeois
What is it that you alone posses
What is it that makes you stand out
What is your identity?

It’s surprising how inflexible people can be with their opinions! They may be the smartest people you know, they may be leagues ahead in many ways, but they can shock you with the nonsense they spout when their opinions are challenged.

Even if you’re infinitely confident you’re right, keep your thoughts open to contention. You may know a lot, but there will be at least a minimal chance that you may not have factored in everything.

Be smart about your opinions. Close mindedness did not help men discover fire. Open up!

This is good wine.
Helps me forget all my worries for the moment.
I’ll be reminded of them again tomorrow,
And I think they’ll be even bigger headaches than they were today.
It’s not like I can run away from them.
But this is good wine.
