Sometimes it’s needed to start something new. I want to use this time during quarantine to work on some new projects I’ve always had in mind. I’ll be taking a break from my daily blog to try to focus on them (I don’t believe I can share as much value while focusing intensely on these […]
Practice instead. Learning means being receiving information and keeping it stored as knowledge. It’s a really useful skill to have. Practicing, on the other hand, is finding ways to apply knowledge until you get good at it. It’s very easy to sit back and learn. Play some background music while doing homework. Listen to a […]
“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened” Mark Twain Certainly feels like they have though right? I’ve never stopped and thought about how many troubles I’ve actually had in the past. It just seems like they’ve been a part of my life, as I’m […]
Don’t Say No For Someone Else
It’s easy to look at a job posting and think we aren’t qualified. It’s natural to want to share something new and think we aren’t worthy. It’s just human nature to look at ourselves and think we aren’t enough But if we don’t believe in ourselves, who will? Go into the interview believing you deserve […]
Want to Talk To The CEO of Google?
You’re probably thinking it’s not possible. When Tim Ferris challenged a lecture hall of Princeton students to contact the highest profile person they can (George Bush, Bill Gates, etc.) and ask them a question, no one did anything.

Where’s Your Attention?
Daniel Kahneman, a researcher at Princeton, conducted a study where he gave participants a simple task. At the sound of a rhythmic pacer, memorize a string of 4 digits shown and then add 3 to each digit. He dubbed this the Addi3 experiment Simple task right? Turns out, the effort to do such a task […]
Chicken or the Egg?
Which came first? Or maybe it’s worth asking, why does it matter? There are a lot of questions worth asking for a lot of people. But some are perhaps not as relevant as we thought. We can only look to answer so many questions. Let’s focus the ones worth answering.
Organize By Essence
There’s so much to do each day. And often it feels like so little time to do it. But the truth is, there is a lot of time. 24 hours can be utilized extremely well, even considering 8 hours of sleep, 2 hours of eating, 1 hour of exercise, etc. Oftentimes the issue isn’t that […]
The Right Questions at The Right Time
Usually the question comes only when it’s needed. But perhaps the right time is before the question is necessary.
