Self Improvement


  • Humans are always drawn to pleasure but it may be a selfish indulgence that does not last. 
  • Truth, rationality and wisdom are the lasting virtues that one should be after.
  • People derive pleasure in millions of different ways, some beyond our understanding.

Example: People who hate sports cannot understand why thousands are cheering in a stadium for a few men who are chasing a ball.

Self Improvement


The quiz is the oldest TV format of them all; the earliest TV shows were quizzes adapted from the radio.

There are probably four rules to a good quizshow:

  • The game’s got to work; there’s got to be something intrinsic about it that sustains itself, day in, day out. 
  • It has to have an element of proper jeopardy: lots of the best ones hinge around a single decision – to play on or not, to take the money or not take the money?
  • The hosts are key.
  • There’s got to be something familiar yet slightly different about them.

The catch to the dilemma of non-attachment is the way we define our desires and attachments.

If we begin from a basic understanding that in life, everything is lost in the end, everything, as nothing was truly ours, the concept of non-attachment comes to light. We must be willing to accommodate the inevitable loss.

The first American reality TV show

The 1973 "An American Family" was the first reality show aired on PBS. *It offered an intimate examination of a single family alongside a powerful critique of American society.

The show was aired from January to March, but it was too realistic for a TV audience accustomed to sitcom perfection.

Bruce Lee

“The less promise and potency in the self, the more imperative is the need for pride. The core of pride is self-rejection.”
