Happy Birthday Christopher Nolan : A Lesson to Learn From Nolan

For the past few days I have been hanging around in social media to help my friends know my blog. It is really embarrassing experience to use social media again. I have been seriously figuring out some productive and efficient ways of using these tools, since I know for sure that unless I don’t intentionally figure out a purpose for using them, It will redo my efforts for the past 8 months(those calm and focused days where It was me and myself only).

Many of you might have heard and felt true about this mantra- “follow your passion” even if you may not actually be following it.Surprisingly it is a very blind solipsism.Why I say so is that, if you really do some case studies of highly successful people around us, you find ‘following your passion’ is absolutely nonsense.

Yesterday was a Fact, Tomorrow is a Myth But Today is the Truth.

In the previous post I just conveyed the thought of why you should spend time for yourself.We found some reasons why regular doses of solitude is vital in our daily life. I also asked you the Brad Pitt’s question -How’s that working out for you? I hope you may have arrived at an answer, if not take your time to sit back and think about it in depth. The reason, why it is the first thing to do is, every sort of effective change begins with a decision. You may be thinking that I have made several decisions during different…

For the past few months I have been seriously thinking about how much our attention and the quality of our life is manipulated by our present digitally distracted age. I have seen people unable to perform meaningful, productive and valuable work during these times. I believe that…
