If you’ve made a small step forward today, then you are on the right track.

I decided not to write an article for today because I thought my mind was cluttered recently due to overwork. After writing yesterday’s article, I found out that I made many minor mistakes in my writing that I regretted. I kept saying to myself, “I should’ve proofread the article 100x times.. what an idiot”. I know that ranting on myself is not a good idea. But, having to write an article every day does make one crazy at some point.

I guess I was pushing myself too hard. No one told me that I had to do all those work…


Personal Development

Try working out different time of the day and see which one works the best

Everyone’s goal for the new year is to start working out and have a fit body by the time it reaches summer. But, what are the chances that everyone will be working out daily? Many of us will likely quit in the middle and come up with the same new year goal the next year.

To stop the same cycle from repeating, I’ve been iterating many different ways for the past few months with exercising. I tried to go to the gym in the morning but realized that my energy level drained by the time it was afternoon. …


Investments

Knowing the company before investing can be a game-changer

Over the past few months, I’ve been investing my money into stocks. Although I hadn’t made significant gains yet, I am more fulfilled than ever about my investments. And the reason is that I’ve only invested in companies that I know and use.

In our current times, we are too swept away by the mind-boggling profits people make with their investments. Many of us invest our money in companies that we don’t even know because someone told us to do so.

I was one of those people in the past. With the eagerness to make more short-term profit, I’ve invested…


Emotion

Instead, staying in the range isn’t too bad after all.

Happiness.

It’s a term that many of us use to describe what we ultimately want in life. Yes, physical goods can bring us happiness, but we’ve all figured out that it does not last permanently. The more we have, the more we eventually want.

Doesn’t that same apply to happiness?

If we gain more happiness, we also want more happiness. But, where is the end of happiness? Is it a subjective matter or an objective matter?

I’ve been thinking about what the point is in life for a while—like anyone would. The more I think, the more difficult it became.


Productivity

Knowing how to add habits to your life can take you a long way.

In the past few years, I’ve been working to live my day so that I feel fulfilled at the end of each day. To do that, I’ve implemented dozens of tasks I needed to complete each day. It can indeed be overwhelming, but at the same time, it is how I run my day with everything accomplished.

Being satisfied at the end of each day feels amazing. We all know that time never comes back, and knowing that we’ve spent our time wisely makes us want to repeat the next day. I guess this is what motivated me from all…

Implementing the right habit is the key.

Habits are one of the most fundamental aspects of life that creates who we are as we repeatedly do. As there are good habits that allow us to grow and prosper, bad habits degrade us over time. To bring positive results in our life, it’s essential to implement positive habits. Not only do our lives get better, but we also feel better as we do these habits.

Below are some of the habits that I’ve done over the past few years that allowed me to become who I am today and I’m grateful that I took these habits seriously in…


Entrepreneur

Who says doing a side job while working full time is bad?

Photo by Jakob Owens on Unsplash

In the past three years of working full-time, I have learned and executed countless side jobs. Some failed, and some worked out. Indeed, my side jobs haven’t reached my full-time income level yet, but I am confident to say that it will happen at some point in my career.

When I ask a few of my friends whether trying out for a side job, the responses are usually, “I’m too busy to do that” or “I can’t take any further risks.” …


Innovation

Knowing how to leverage disorder can be a superpower.

Photo by Hans-Peter Gauster on Unsplash

Even though I clean my room every day, I somehow maintain my room to be messy all the time. It can be because I use too much of a space to do my painting works at night, or it could be because I forget to clean right before I sleep.

Entropy is all around us, and we might not realize it.

To me, entropy is the universe’s sign of order, whereas it’s a sign of disorder for modern humans standard. We want everything to be clean, sleek, and simple. However, the universe always makes it chaos in some form or…


Personal Growth

Creating and sharing the result can bring more than just satisfaction.

Photo by Angelina Litvin on Unsplash

Oftentimes, I come across a thought on what life would be like if we didn’t create anything meaningful. Will we regret it later in the future? Or will we be exhausted thinking that there is no limit to how much we can create?

Creating (something) is difficult, and I know it because my life revolves around creating something new every day. Whether it’s writing, drawing, painting, or planning, all works nowadays require some kind of creating.

We all struggle with creating, and that is totally natural. Although the process is difficult, the results are usually worthwhile.

Like how all great…

Taking a break is a key component of greater productivity

Drawing By Author

I’ve taken few weeks off from writing because of my most recent trip to the United States. Being far away from an environment where I am used to being productive, it was honestly difficult to follow my aggressive productive schedule.

It felt weird at first to suddenly drop everything and do nothing for the first few days. I felt as if I was degrading my life which made me worried that I wouldn’t return to my productive state.

But that worrisome disappeared after a while, and I learned some great takeaways after having this experience.

By taking a break from…
