Good Enough

We all are told that greatness is the route to success. But Good is not the enemy of Great.

Going by the epidemic of clinical anxiety, employee burnout, depression, and other stress-related problems we face, we need to ask ourselves if we even know what success means.

Thich Nhat Hanh

“Success means finding happiness in your work and life, in the here and the now.”

Out of the Dream World

Remove the fairy tale, magical thinking from your life, and accept who you are and where you stand. Recognize your circumstances as they are and take appropriate action.

Patience is Key

If you want long-term changes and improvements in your life, the ones that last, you will have to be patient.

To get true results, you will have to go for the long-haul.

Being Fully Present

In this age of optimization, we are compelled to do more, to multitask and provide quick results.

The key to happiness is to be fully present in whatever you are doing.

Being Flawed

Being vulnerable and flawed is a virtue, not something to look down upon.

Social media is full of people showing off their perfect lives, and we fall victim to this constant pressure of being invincible and perfect.

Tweeting is not Meeting

Texting and emailing are not the same as actually meeting someone.

Allow for more in-person connections instead of virtual ones. Real connections with real people will foster genuine and meaningful relationships.
