Paintings: Impressionist Style Of Art

First seen in the mid-19th century, impressionist art captured the immediate impression of scenery or moment, communicated by the artist using light, reflection and separated colours.

The capturing of light was done using short brushstrokes done quickly and freely, making the painting appear rough and messy to some.

Self Improvement

Fearing performance reviews

Performance reviews are inherently subjective and our fear of getting booted out of the company often makes us think and act out of fear.

During performance reviews, other people's perception of you is a heavily impacting factor but being able to understand the elements that can be built up before your review will improve its outcome.

Emotional Intelligence: The Assumptions

Emotional Intelligence(EQ), or the ability to be able to identify and respond to the other person’s feelings is a soft-skill based on two flawed assumptions:

  1. It is possible to detect or gauge the emotions of the other person accurately.
  2. Emotions are triggered by outside events and can be controlled by rationality.

New studies find that faces and bodies are not the perfect communicators of a person’s emotional state, and one cannot control someone’s emotion using logic, making the traditional understanding of Emotional Intelligence outdated.

Black history month honours the contributions of African Americans to U.S. history.

The celebrations began as "Negro History Week," created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator and publisher. In 1976, it became a month-long celebration. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

Early European chess players changed the game

Early European chess players turned the chess game to reflect their society's political structure.

  • Originally, chess was a game of war. Horsemen, elephant-riding fighters, charioteers and infantry protected the "shah" and his counsellor, the "firz."
  • But Europeans changed the "shah" to a king, the "vizier" to queen, the "elephants" to bishops, the "horses" to knights, the "chariots" to castles, and the "foot soldiers" to pawns.
  • Instead of representing the units in an army, the pieces now stood in for Western social order - those who fought (knights), those who prayed (clergy) and those who worked (the rest).
  • Delayed Gratification: Scheduling the pain and pleasure of life in such a way as to enhance the pleasure by meeting and experiencing the pain first.
  • Accepting Responsibility: I can solve a problem only when I say “This is my problem and it’s up to me to solve it"
  • Dedication to Reality: The only way we can ensure our map of the world is correct and accurate is to expose it to the criticism of others.
  • Balancing: The capacity not only to express our anger but also not to express it. Moreover, we must possess the capacity to express our anger in different ways. 
Memory: The Hard Disk Of The Mind

Our memory is perceived by us as a database in our heads that can never go wrong.

New evidence paints a different picture, and our memory may not be as consistent or even as true as believed.

Stoicism and life's adversities

Stoicism is generally understood to be detached and non-reactive towards any of life’s adversities.

In the words of the philosopher William Irvine, the ultimate goal of Stoicism is ‘tranquillity’ or the avoidance of ‘spikes’ in one’s state of mind. The things that are in our control are not something to be worried about. The things that aren’t in our control, we can do nothing about, so it is no use worrying about them.
