I was told recently that my writing had changed a bit. I’ll admit, I’ve been working on these posts almost every day. I have also noticed a shift in my focus, topics, and approach to the practice.

The things that pop up time and again are entertainment, lifestyle, technology, organization, time management, and health and wellness. Additionally, I’ve got a number of notes with various ideas scribbled down, hoping to be made into a post eventually. Working at this daily, I’m finally making progress.

Still, even more ideas come up daily, and I think the best way to handle them is just to jot them down. 

I imagine that, going forward, my voice here will continue to change. Hopefully for the better.


Schools really do encourage bad habits. For starters, always aiming for a perfect score. We’re talking about encouraging a mentality of perfectionism that can lead to students becoming overly anxious and stressed out. It also creates a focus on getting the right answer rather than on learning and understanding the material. 

Moving out of the classroom setting, you now have adults who think the only way to succeed is to achieve perfection. But that’s a stifling mindset to have! There is no 100% mark after graduation. It’s a sliding scale of successes and failures, and both are acceptable, and expected. 

We all make mistakes, and to learn from them and grow, we must not be afraid to take risks. But believing that perfection is the goal, you end up becoming more risk averse.

Learning to accept failure as a part of the process is key to finding success. By doing so, we can be better prepared to take on any challenge that comes our way.

Then there’s the obeisance to a teacher. Now, as a child, that structure is certainly necessary. But they’re not the same as the boss you have once you enter the working world. The relationship with a teacher is like a relationship with a parent: it involves trust, respect, and obedience, but it is not the same as the relationship between employer and employee.

You are very lucky if you find an employer genuinely interested in your well-being and development. The corporate world is profit-driven, and what their looking for isn’t you turning in a well-researched homework assignment. Instead, they’re looking for someone who can bring them tangible results. To stand out and make a difference, you need to be proactive and take initiative. Make sure to show your worth and determination to succeed. Which may mean stepping out of your comfort zone, and taking the risks.

As an adult, it is important to think and act independently, rather than relying on an authority figure for guidance. We must learn to accept failure as part of the process and be willing to take risks in order to find success. It is also important to recognize that the corporate world is profit-driven and employers are looking for tangible results. To stand out and make a difference, we must be proactive and take initiative, even if it means stepping out of our comfort zone.

Your mission

Having a personal mission can help someone live a meaningful and fulfilling life.

It outlines what your purpose is in life, and provides a roadmap for making decisions and taking action. 

It should be something that is meaningful to you and that resonates with your values and beliefs. 


It doesn’t matter whether or not you understand how a fuel combustion engine works – if you turn the key in a car, it’ll most likely start. You don’t need to know formulae to understand Newton’s laws – if it goes up, it’s going to come down. 

But there are mechanics – who better know how that engine works. We have physicists who study, teach, or experiment. Just because the general public doesn’t need to know the specific of something doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be those who do. Specialists fill a vital role in the world, providing indispensable expertise and insight into complex problems. Their knowledge is essential for the development of new technologies, and for the advancement of society as a whole.

And that is the main reason to specialize. In something.

The search for happiness

Happiness is a feeling that we all strive for. It is something that can be hard to find, or it can smack us upside the head.

One of the most important things to remember when searching for happiness is to be mindful of the present moment. Many times, we can become lost in our thoughts, worrying about the future and ruminating over the past. This can lead us to miss out on the joys of the present. To seek happiness, it is important to be mindful and appreciate the small moments and beauty that life has to offer.

A digital library

When Guttenberg invented the printing press in 1450, it revolutionized information access. What could have taken years by hand could now be achieved in days. Though widespread literacy was still a long way off, the potential of the printing press thrust society forward by allowing it to disseminate ideas and information cheaper, faster, and more effectively.

Advances kept coming, but nothing was as drastic. Nothing, that is, until the internet took digital information and made it accessible instantaneously. The internet has revolutionized communication and information, with the potential to bring together people around the world. It has enabled the free exchange of ideas and knowledge, and has given people the power to create and share content in ways never before imagined.

Thus, with digital libraries, information can be accessed faster than ever before, stored in the cloud or read via computer, eReader, or phone. And so, nearly six centuries later, we’ve reached a new pinnacle of ideation and its dissemination. This digital revolution has changed the way we think, create and communicate.


Many times, it’s just that one flash of inspiration.

That moment of clarity can be the difference between a creative breakthrough and stagnancy.

Having a creative spark can open new doors and possibilities.

It helps to bring new ideas and perspectives to the table, and lets you capitalize on them.

Let it be

Life is interesting. If you let it be.

There’s always something to learn, something to explore, and something to discover. We just have to be open to it.

Life is full of surprises, and it’s up to us to take advantage of all that it has to offer.

Game theory

Game theory is the study of how people behave in strategic situations, where the outcome of a participant’s choice of action depends on the choices of other participants. It can be applied to a wide range of topics, from economics and business to politics and military strategy. Currently, its uses are widespread, though somewhat academic. 

For instance, game theory has been used in recent years to help predict the outcome of elections, as well as to model the behavior of markets and their participants. To put to practical use, we would need to develop algorithms that can interpret and analyze the data generated by these models. We would also need to identify patterns in the data and use them to accurately predict the outcome of certain scenarios. Finally, we would need to develop strategies that can be implemented based on these predictions.

In the example of election outcome, without contributing factors that may influence the election, it’s little more than a prediction model. And influencing elections in significant enough ways to alter the results could run dangerously close to ethics violations.

Still, with enough data and powerful enough computing, real-world predictions could be made about very nearly any subject matter. This could lead to a whole new world of data-driven decision-making in politics and policy, as well as other areas like health care, transportation, and education. Such an approach could potentially revolutionize the way we make decisions.
