Acknowledging differences between people is good.But discriminating is not.Discrimination shows up when we label those differences as superior or inferior.Everyone is different because one person can’t do everything.We fill in for each other where the other cannot.It is about teamwork.How can you discriminate against someone who’s on your team?
You can’t drag someone down without lowering yourself below them.You can’t kick someone down from above without stopping at your own path of growth.If it’s their loss,then it is also you own.That’s what happens in a team.
When you’re trying to change, taking the first step isn’t enough. You have to reinforce your every step to feel the impact to move on to the next step. It can be any miniscule tangible or psychological award. A few words of encouragement to a coffee break, anything will work. Abstinence will plummet your self control and hence your way to the goal. Reinforcement will give you the boost to carry on to the end of the goal.
Reward of creativity is not money but innovation.
Working hard is good.But working hard smartly is more important.
We focus on worrying about our problems,rather than experimenting out creative solutions.
Make most of your strengths rather than obsessing over your weaknesses.
Internet is shifting people from the reality of democracy to the fantasies of authoritarianism.We are getting used to being surrounded by a particular view internally and externally without batting an eye to the alternatives.Change is difficult.Change in mind,body,environment,social network and so on to adapt to a new view.Very exhausting.What we don’t realize that this exhaustion is a price to pay for awareness.Surrounding ourselves with things we like,follow & prefer is not a bad thing but we need to recognise that those are not the ONLY things in the world.What feels right for me may not feel right for someone else but they must have a reason to believe it in the first place.We don’t dig deeper into something we don’t care about and hence don’t get to know why it’s significant.What is the stranger to me compared to a loved one? What is the stranger’s view to me compared to my view? Feeding our brains consciously and unconsciously with things we like manipulates us to turn a blind eye to other things and live in our own imagination.And while we do this our reality starts to crumble because we forget that everything is connected.Take out one brick and the whole castle will topple over.These intricacies are hard to notice but they build our society and we must acknowledge them all even if we don’t want to accept them completely.That’s what democracy is about.
Don’t think twice.You already invested a lot of time when you were thinking the first time.The second time will just exhaust your mental faculty and make yourself doubt you.Not to say you don’t need to proofread.And not to say haste cannot be a waste.If you made a decision first time with every resource available,then that was the best decision.Our resources keep on improving so it may feel like you made a wrong decision when in fact you made the best decisions under the given situation.It’s the doubt in you that kills future creativity.Doubt things around you to update your thinking.
Ideas are just like living things.They only thrive when they strive.Confine them and they will waste away.
Great solutions are nothing more than simple ideas.That’s what makes them so great.
