Apr 29th, 2020 – it is what it is

Face what you face, do what you need to do, with the omnipresent calm, peace, and clarity in you.

The battles hardened machine… Remember, you decide what to focus on, what things mean, and what you do with them.

Be a big person, or a small one. It’s your choice. Stay calmly focused on your mission, or get emotionally entangled in the small battles with small people.

Apr 28th, 2020 – realistic n honest point of view

Take a cold harsh look at the reality. Act based on what you found, not what you wish.

Assets and cash flows.

Abundance is all around you, you just need to pay attention.

Self limit you not. Figure out how.

You will be required, and you should be able, to execute the engineering tasks that keep the ship going. However, you have to be a visionary if your mission is to steer the ship towards the new continent.

Apr 22nd, 2020 – construct

Guard your mind. Guard the hours and minutes in your life. Let your calling guide your focus.

We all create a version of the world in our minds. Is the construct in your mind helping you or obstructing you?

You would have known the answer long ago. Shut out the noise. Live by the basic principles that make sense to you.

Take seriously only the people, the matters, and the remarks that deserve your precious attention.

You need very little though you may want a lot. Many shout for your attention but you should ignore most of them.

One tiny step at a time. Start.

Again, be very, very clear what you are here for, all the time.

It’s the mindset that differentiates.

Apr 21st, 2020 – walk to unclog

There are only so many hours and days in one’s life, it’s simple logic then, that whenever you add some content (or activity or task or whatever) to them, you have to subtract some too. Optimizing productivity and improving efficiency can only bring you so far, even the best optimization solution can’t reduce your time/energy input to zero. It’s not a rigorously tested proposition or scientific argument, just a casual reminder to use opportunity cost mindset in your daily life.

Knowing life is short is one thing, really appreciating it is another. It takes event(s) or experience, and is reflected in what you do, not what you say.

Focus on your core mission and the essentials, the must-have. Those good-to-have will then, hopefully, fall into place with the help of the universe. Just commit to your calling, and have a little faith.

Almost always, you should look past the official, superficial, and obvious; and figure out the real underlying factor/ driver/ message.

Look no further, the diamonds are in your backyard.

Strive not to be good at the tasks that machines can do perfectly ; learn to harness the machines instead.

Clarity, clarity. It guides your action and direction.

Back from distraction or detour, you carry on and finish up the important tasks. Those which you never compromise.

Feb 12th, 2020 – pick up where the ink dried

Small changes in lifestyle for big increase in happiness.

Focus on what brought you here, what you have got, not what annoys you.

What does originality mean? New combination of old elements. Milk and dark chocolate goes well together by the way.

Clarity in purpose, clarity in priority.

Whatever that is free comes with a price. Think Google and Facebook.

Sometimes you need to have clear understanding of the reasons causing your problems. Sometimes you don’t, so long as you figure out the solution.
