Child, Brother, Husband, Parent: The Cycle of Life

As we grow up and grow old, we tend to forget our responsibilities.  There are factors to answer why.  Naming few are stress, lack of time, and distractions. 

I love my family.  We all do.  Problem is that when you get old, things can get slow or fast.  Slow, when you are waiting for someone when you have an available time.  I work during night shifts, so tendency is that I could not find time to spend it with my family.  Because either they are already resting when I am up and when they are available, I am the one that can’t provide time.  Fast, in the sense that while you are waiting for something to happen, when it happens you can’t seize the moment and it just happened without you feeling the joy.

Focus: Why is it Important and How Anyone Can Improve

"Always remember, your focus determines your reality." - Qui-Gon Jinn (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace)

In a world where distraction is unavoidable, focusing is one thing that is hard to do these days.  We have laptops, tablets, smart phones and all sort of technologies buffering our way.  And it seems that there is no stopping distractions, we need to learn how to somehow equally divide our attention to what matters to our lives.  Imagine what you can do with just less time when you allow yourself to give 100 percent to something that you really have to do.  Even if you have a lot in your hands for one day if you start to learn how to focus,  you will be able to do all of them, or if not you will eventually get there.

Respect Does Not Come in a Plate. Ways of Earning Respect.

I love it when I talk to old people.  It is easier to talk with them, you can see honesty in their eyes when they talk and they seldom use words that you don't get these days.  They must have been thinking that their days is about to come that is why you will feel the honest stories.  And the words that they use perhaps is beautiful because they have learned that talking with sense is better.  I mean they have come far when it comes to experience and they know being disrespectful to others will always have a bad ending and you will feel that once you listen and hear what they have to say.

How to Plan Weekends: Guide to Making The Most Out of Your Off

I really don't know why weekend is the most anticipated days of our lives.  Even when it is only monday, you will start greeting your office-mates, "How was your weekend?" "Wow that is great, are you planning the same thing next weekend?" or sometimes "What, why didn't you ask if I can come?"  Things like that.  But as a human being, it is not really bad to look forward to Saturdays and Sundays.  It is not a sign that you don't like your job.  It is just a sign that you want to put the breaks so you can pedal the gas before Monday comes.

The South Beach Diet Theory

I came across with this type of diet program because I have an upcoming important event that I need to look and feel good.  Not that I don't feel good about myself, but of course it is a one time event and It will be better if I am at my top by the time it happened.

The Brain Tapper: Overview of Using The Six Thinking Hats Theory and How to Organize Your Thoughts

The Six Thinking Hats was written by Edward de Bono.  I bought this book out of curiosity and really not knowing what was the inside of it.  I thought that it talks about a certain color that separates individuals base on what their favorite color is.  Bottom line is that I bought the book thinking that when I get to the register is that I will be looking cool, intelligent and deep.  I can never forget that day and the lessons learned from the book.

Experts: The Human Side

With a slight miscalculation, everything changes
With most of what is happening these days, a slight miscalculation can change everything.
What separates experts from others is that they practice at first the basics all the way up to the advance level.  And when it comes to mistakes, they will try to lessen their probability of making one.
Because if they do, they know the aftermaths.

When we do a routine, we usually know what we need to do to get a task done without even thinking the steps.  It is like, when you brush your teeth.  You don't go, step one gargle, step two wash toothbrush, and so on until you are done.  You don't do that because it is already printed to your brain what to do.  I guess, it will take me a lot of blogs about foresight but for now just a general blog about this and I hope I can share more.
