People Perspectives #Maya Angelou

'Self-Made' is a myth. There is no one who is self-made. Period. All the millionaires anecdotes and rags-to-riches stories that we come across, may make us feel like we are all powerful alone and we can conquer the world alone - but that is far from the truth. We are a social conglomerate and we need to be guided, inspired and navigated by others, people who have lived and worked in the right direction more than us. The fact is that today, we ain't got the time or the opportunities to make all the mistakes we can and then learn from them. Don't believe anyone who says otherwise.

Starting to do something in life, is so similar to when we started off as babies. We didn't know a thing, had no clue about the whats, whys and wheres of any skill whatsoever. Had we been left to teach ourselves everything, most of us would still be crawling the floors and inventing  ways to ask for a sandwich. But no.

A Procrastinator's Mind

Procrastination - For those wondering what it is - a genetic psychology journal describes it as the act of delaying a task until a point of discomfort, without any viable cause or reason.

Throughout the week I feel like I do not have time to cook, eat, do the laundry, write a post, complete my book and do the usual odd errand. And I eagerly lean towards the weekend - stacking up - to finally get some work done in the two…

Journey form Tumblr to Blogger.

Well, its simple - Tumblr is awesome but it is not the tool the world needs right now, although it totally deserves it. Somehow, at the end of this not-so-amazing weekend, I thought of trying out some of the best Desktop Clients for blogging. This change was inspired by the fact that I was getting lazier . . it was a pain to open the tumblr page and write a post in their oh-so-tiny space . . it was getting slack and the fun went missing.

Then I stumbled upon Windows Live Writer and some other tools which you can write blogs in offline mode but they all failed me in one department - None of them had support for tumblr. In a time when wordpress is the king, it seems the competition is not getting the respect it deserves.

So, here I am . . starting over at Blogger ( somehow these tools like it as a second alternatine . . huh ). Let's see how the journey from here unfolds.
