I had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine just recently and he asked the question, “What is life all about?”. What is interesting is not just the question (which it is), but our own readiness to face that question. I’ve had countless conversations over the years about the meaning of life with all […]
A Review of Sorts
For the past month I took time out from blogging to review my own blog progress. Blogging is a new medium for me so this has been pretty much a new experience for me as well.
I wanted to make the blog more action orientated but somehow the flow doesn’t quite seem right here. So I’ve decided to work on another site which is more targeted for action takers and keep this site for philosophical thoughts. It’s being built right now, piece-by-piece as I take my time to enjoy the process of setting up a website.
How will it turn out? Honestly, I don’t know. I certainly hope it will turn out well but until I test it, I will never know. And that’s how progress is made. One way or the other.
One good way to get positive energy to start the day is to read, listen, or watched something motivational. Just 15 minutes or so would be good enough if time is a factor.

Discipline and Accountability – the first two factors which are essential for guaranteed success are very much dependent on you. It is something you can personally influence and develop. The third Essential Element is not something you can easily influence. Yet without it, most people fail. It is also the one element where some people […]
The second thing that you need for guaranteed success is Accountability. We (that’s you and me) are great at lying. We lie to everyone. We even lie to ourselves. Okay, that’s a bit harsh. I don’t mean we lie in a bad guy way, like what you see in movies. I’m talking about deceiving ourselves. Umm… […]
Guaranteed Success. Who doesn’t want that? So a guarantee to success is a big claim. But who can guarantee your success when they don’t know you or your work ethics? The truth is, nobody can. But there are certainly ways which will tip the statistic of success in your favor. Most people wishing for success are doing just that […]
Here’s an interesting question: Does achieving success lead to happiness? Or, are happiness and success the same thing? Sarah Vermunt, in an Entrepreneur article Success vs. Happiness: Don’t Be Fooled Into Thinking They’re the Same gave her thoughts on this. There is a difference between real success which leads to happiness, and the superficial type of success which […]
