Don't catch yourself with these excuses

Don't catch yourself with these excuses

  1. I don’t have enough time: It’s okay to identify things you don’t want to do and set boundaries.
  2. I don’t have the right background: Background has little to do with your success once you find your passion.
  3. I don’t have the support: Don’t let other people’s opinions distract you from your path.
  4. I can never get to that level: It's important to visualize yourself at that level through meditation, journaling, etc.
  5. I’m not lucky enough: Waiting for something to happen to you won't help you succeed

The importance of marking a book

Why is marking a book indispensable to reading it? 

First, it keeps you awake, not merely conscious, but wide awake. 

Second, reading, if it is active, is thinking, and thinking tends to express itself in words, spoken or written. The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.

Third, writing your reactions down helps you to remember the thoughts of the author.

Making Bad Decisions: Being Intentionally Stupid

Our various cognitive biases make us behave irrationally, even though we believe we are acting logically. If we are tired, in a rush, or are distracted we tend to rush towards a bad decision. Other factors include working with an authority figure or in a group.

The rule to follow is to never make important decisions when one is emotionally weak, tired, distracted, or in a hurry.
