The blessing of people

2019-09-13T21:19:39+00:00

To continue from yesterday’s conversation, I do think that People are the most important asset that you can have in your “boat”, whether that boat means marriage, a company or a team of whatever type.

You are only as strong as the people on your team. No matter how good you may be, there’s only so […]

A lot of times, it’s the boat you are on that matters (not your rowing ability)

2019-09-12T21:38:30+00:00

Usually, it’s very tempting for successful people to attribute their success to talent, skill and hardwork. They rank their efforts as prime factor for their success. They discount the people, and the external resources of their immediate environment and how all of these contributes into making them whatever they get to become. It is small […]

Becoming an Artist (Part 2)

2019-09-11T18:12:56+00:00

….another vital component in practicing Art is the Making process itself.

You know, for the fact that real Art is scary makes it scarce. It is easy to do what you did yesterday, the same way, without putting any thought into it. That’s what Robots do and they don’t get tired. And it is the way […]

Becoming an Artist

2019-09-10T19:02:36+00:00

Yesterday, I gave a manifesto on why we should all be Artists.

Today, I’d like to take it a notch further by sharing a few ideas on how to do Art and bring creativity to our work.

You know, someone has said that everybody looks but not everyone sees. That seeing is a unique ability that makes […]

The artist of the 21st century

2019-09-09T21:03:28+00:00

When you hear the word Artist in the past, you would probably think of a musician, dancer, poet, or painter. Usually what comes to mind is someone who makes some kind of public performance.

But that was in the past!

In 2019, Art has a new meaning. An artist is someone who brings new thinking and innovation […]

L’espirit de l’escalier

2019-09-06T19:47:59+00:00

According to Wikipedia, that’s a French term used in English for the predicament of thinking of the perfect reply too late.

For example, you are engaged in a heated debate or argument and you only remember a perfect point of attack after the argument has finished. Or you remember a better answer that you should have […]

Emotional energy is not infinite – it’s like a battery

2019-09-05T17:18:22+00:00

There are not many people who can be excited all day. It’s hard to find people who brim with smiles all the time. If you are one or you have such people in your circle, it can be such a blessing.

It is not hard to put a performance once a while, and display emotional energy […]

Are you selling your time for a living?

2019-09-04T18:32:52+00:00

Since the advent of industrialization and capitalism, “going to work between 9-to-5” has become a norm rather than the exception. The world has been organized by these forces to become a system were individuals, exchange their time as an asset to earn a living – “you give me your most productive time-block of say, 9am-to-5pm […]

What to do and what not to do

2019-09-03T20:25:02+00:00

Let’s be honest. None of us know for sure what will make us successful. In the labyrinth of life, we would not be immune from uncertainty, risk, and fear as we navigate life’s complex journey. Life will often not give us its best on a platter. It is the way it is and the way […]

Action bias and the power of waiting

2019-09-02T17:51:19+00:00

Waiting in today’s world is an unpopular thing. It takes a lot of character to wait – to take our turns in the queue and to pause for others to lead the way. Fast food stores are one of the highest revenue earning food business because people like it quick. A family or group of […]
