  2. “A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.”
    —Bruce Lee

    He has some of the most inspirational quotes, of course I am not sure if this was constructed by himself, but, he sure did have some profound knowledge. I am, for some reason in Bruce Lee quotes mode, nevertheless, I can get to learn a lot, if I sift through some of his quotes. I would love to implement them.

  7. i am not a big fan of nike, but, this commecial is one of the best for various reasons. it reiterates the fact that failure is to be seen just as a by-product of any action and is surely is one of the stepping stone towards achieving success.

     
  8. hypermetropic vision

    one always says that long-term thinking is better than a myopic vision. it is tough as i can realise now, going through a phase of not being able to do what i want to do, but, the steps being taken will ensure that i am on track to do what i want to do. i don’t think i have ever felt this way, before. i did my bachelors in engineering because it was something which interested me, rockets, space ( and of course, my family members being engineers) naturally aided me to take up mechanical engineering. during the course, i ended up having a soft corner for fluid mechanics, in spite of having bad scores at the university exams. most of my courses in the 3rd and 4th year were more inclined towards mechanics of solids ( yes, there is a common fiber that can link fluid mechanics and solid mechanics, but, we did not get there ). due to my brother and family, and of course out of my own interest, i developed an inclination towards research and graduate studies. if i look back, there was a need, an urge from within which saw me through until i got an admission for a research course. however, i lost steam through the course of study, due to the fact that my research was not really practical and wasn’t of much use. sometimes, you will have to do things which you don’t really enjoy to the core and it is times like these you would probably learn the most as well. skills such as patience, perseverance, time-management and other multi-disciplinary stuff are something which you will acquire during the period and will carry with you for the rest of the life.

    the biggest advantage is that it is in the field of engineering only and this is a skill which i need to learn asap to get ahead and get on with my life and do what i want. let me put on my hypermetropic glasses for the time being and listen to freddie mercury to get me going.

     
  9. best way to die, rather the most productive death

    i did not really know that one can die due to over-working and such form of death even existed, but, it actually does. my curiosity started when i read that a kid in china died due to playing video games for about 40 hours continuously. i think that if you don’t enjoy what you are doing and you are forced to work for such long hours, it doesn’t surprise me that one can attain death with this. does someone want to try it out, i would love to as i have had one near-death experience already. however, i am a bit too optimistic that i would never do something which i don’t like and that too continuously for over 30 hours.

    very difficult for me to even imagine how people could be forced to work for such long hours and just throw in a monetary compensation if their heart stops working.

    is there a way to be productive and efficient by not over-working?

    i am sure there is and actually i would love to attain death through this means, if i am working on developing on my own product otherwise i would consider it as another form of murder, to say the least.

  10. enhancing productivity

    i am a kind of person who is interested in anything and everything. i am not sure if it is a boon or a bane to be interested in a wide variety of topics. however, to enhance productivity, this is definitely a bane, therefore, focus is the weapon i am trying to use to get rid of my lethargy aka interests in wide spectrum of things.
