“When you’re everywhere, you’re nowhere” - Rumi
How often does social media make you feel like you’re not doing enough, working enough, achieving enough, or just not good enough? Probably often? More like always? No wonder people feel stressed out and depressed as a result. The social media image of happy people looking like they have it all figured out sometimes makes … Continue reading Overachievers are overrated
When was the last time you stopped for a moment and took a look around you and the pace everything seems to be moving at? Life seems pretty fast? Months feel like weeks, weeks like days, and days like hours. And 2018 is almost over. We're always trying to beat time when in reality time … Continue reading Slow down
Perhaps one of the most underrated skills in life — figuring things out on the go, as you start a new job or a new project; while trying to learn a new language, skill, tool; or when trying to switch careers. It also works when you get lost during traveling or in life. Just figure it out. … Continue reading Figure it out
You’ve got to be careful with what you say because every word and sentence that comes out of your mouth will never come back. Don’t over promise when you’re under pressure, you will regret it later when you can’t deliver. And people will not take you seriously or trust you anymore.

We compare people with other people when nobody is or will ever be the same, we compare experiences with other experiences when they’re very different from each … Continue reading Compared to what?

The truth is that none of these … Continue reading Who cares anyway
I’ve always thought of my life as a short one. And I’ve lived it as such — doing all the things I feared, all the things people said it’d be crazy or impossible to do, and in short, doing everything I’ve always wanted. I think of my life every day as something that could end up at … Continue reading Short and sweet life
What makes you who you are today are all the unknown experiences — be it tragic or wonderful. Wait, what are you talking about? Remember all the tough times you went through — when you failed at things that looked simple but weren’t, were bullied by people you considered friends, broke your bones in an accident yet came out … Continue reading The unknown is you
