  • New Year’s Resolutions: 2018

    In yesterday’s post, I talked about holding yourself accountable and by taking responsibility in your own life will give you power. This blog post is dedicated to my goals for 2018 and will also hold me accountable to work towards achieving them. Although this post is more for me to visualize and organize my thoughts, feel… Continue reading

  • Being Held Accountable: New Year’s Resolutions

    “With great power comes great responsibility” “But with great responsibility also comes great power.” Hold yourself accountable for the things you “promised” to do, or the things you need to do, and even the things you should do. The reason most people’s new year’s resolutions fail in an average of 3 weeks is that people don’t hold… Continue reading

  • No-Man’s Land

    Yesterday I wrote a poem about chasing the horizon And if you chase it too far, you end up in no-man’s land (or no man’s ocean in the poem) Stranded and alone… Truly, no one wants to be here But this is where you can accomplish great things Successful people in their fields pave their… Continue reading

  • Chasing the Horizon

    I felt like writing a poem today. Now, I am by no means a poet, but I do enjoy reading poetry, watching spoken poetry, and yes, occasionally writing it. This poem is about focusing on the progress and the process (#Trust the Process). Sometimes we dwell too much on a certain goal, that we forget how… Continue reading

  • Thoughts

    Things I’ve been pondering: Did you know that to be in the top 1% in the world in terms of income, you need to earn about $32,000 a year? Chinese people will not exist at some point in the future… as in, there will not be a single person who is genetically ONE race… everyone… Continue reading

  • Chair-ish? vs. Cherish

    This post is a response to a one-word prompt from The Daily Post Blog. The word: chair-ish. What a weird prompt… Actually, I think the word was cherish, but does it really matter? I mean, if you said either of those words out loud, no one would be the wiser; they sound the same! They may… Continue reading

  • Merry Christmas

    “If you’re in the luckiest 1 percent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 percent.” -Warren Buffett Merry Christmas everyone.   Continue reading

  • Just Give

    There is no perfect way to give. There is no perfect charity to donate money to. There is no perfect organization to volunteer for. Just like there is no proper way to apologize; there is no best time to start a new venture or business; there is no perfect way to study and learn a… Continue reading

  • Reconnecting

    When you don’t see your friends for 4 months… But when you finally reconnect again, it’s almost like you never left. That’s when you know you have a friendship to last. I missed my friends, and I reconnected with a lot of them the last few days. Laughing about old memories, and laughing about the… Continue reading

  • First of many

    I went back to my high school today to present a “Ted Talk” (to two separate classes). It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was 11: giving motivational and insightful speeches I talked about 3 things: Connections Influence Beliefs Although the talk was about 10 minutes long, I’ll cut it short to just present… Continue reading
