Sunday Inception: How I Deal with Uncertain Times

We are living through the hardest of times. The quality of life that we experience is subject to the amount of uncertainty that we face. Everything around us has become uncertain. There is no denial of the fact that as an individual, as a family and as well as a society our future is under scepticism. But the worse thing that we can do at this moment is to become cynical. When you become cynical you start to believe that you should be in control of the environment around you. You think control brings you security and happiness. But when…

Do You End Up Using Every Skill You Learn?

Do you end up using every skill that you learn? Throughout our lives, we learn so many skills. When you were a child you were told to learn so much of subjects to get you through formal education. It’s important to get primary education. Your knowledge of basic science and mathematics will always come handy. But the career-defining skills are learnt in your younger years as you enter college or at least we are told so. Is that true? Will you be using every knowledge or skill that you learn at college in your career path? Countless studies confirm the…

Sunday Inception: Legacy is Not Built by The Initiator

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” Uttered the first man who landed on the moon. For mankind to land on the moon was a transcendent endeavour ever set out. We do love who take the initiative. We appreciate new endeavours. We glorify a new invention. We remember the names of those who did it for the first time. But what is left unsung is those who maintain the glory. Somehow it appears that we overvalue the beginnings of an action rather than how the action is pursued in the long run. A dozen men have…

You Might be Wrong About What Makes You Happy

If you think you have an absolute conviction of what makes you happy, you probably are wrong. One of the fascinating psychological studies that were conducted to understand the truth about happiness is by Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman. According to his studies, people are wrong about how happy they are. In his TED Talk, he explains the riddle behind how we perceive happiness and make life decisions based on that. After listening to his talk, I was intrigued by the imperceptibility of the lousiness we have in judging and guessing what makes us happy. In my understanding, this misguidance is…

Sunday Inception: Possibilities Amid The Perils

“From the zenith afar, with its vertical ray¬≠ Shines the sun in its splendor, the glory of day. Tho ‘ dark clouds should arise to bedim its clear light, They are scattered away by its power and might.“ FROM MEMORIES OF CHILDHOOD AND OTHERPOEMS, BY John M. Morse The universe is neutral and reality is neutral. How our mind interprets the reality is what makes it a limitation or a possibility. The world is going through a challenging time and is tired and anxious about the pandemic. Our present and the future are at stakes. But for the millennials, this…

How to Become Tough and Deal with Criticism

Living in a fairy tale world with no negative feedback would only happen in your imagination. There are people to push you up and there are people to pull you down. Some people admire someone and some others loathe that person. The ability to tolerate both to keep someone on track without derailing is a skill and it requires developing a tough skin. Being tough may sound cheeky but it’s crucial in life. Developing a thick skin is not to become indifferent to negative feedback but to tolerate and only filter the information from the criticism if it’s right. Whenever…

Sunday Inception: A Mind Craves Challenges

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. Helen Keller A mind always craves for something challenging to do. It could be anything that embarrasses you. We all have a vision of ourselves that may not be the exact you at this moment. But the vision is always there. The mind knows this and it often makes you remember that – by proposing a new challenge to you. Every single man ever born, at some point in their lifetime might have thought – “Oh, it could be interesting If I do that”. Some people can pay attention to…

It’s Time to Stop Chasing Dreams

Those who have watched the 2010 sci-fi thriller movie Inception would remember this scene. In the above scene, the protagonist, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is spinning a top to check whether he is still in a dream or returned to actual reality. What that scene put forward is a fundamental thing that we all are neglecting while chasing our dreams – which is the reality. Somewhere down the lane of human progress, we forgot that reality is important, and it matters. How We Insulted Reality? When humanity moved along many milestones, we used to respect and improve our reality. The…
