How to Get into a Habit?

11 March 2018

Getting into habits is the easiest thing to do. Choosing which habit to get into is what the fuss is all about.

The internet is flooded with proven strategies on how to get into that H-word. But the only problem with the proven strategies is that, we are promised that the result will be delivered even before we have adopted the strategy. Also, everybody is inherently attracted towards proven strategies which makes your adoption of that S-word less unique.

A little motivational image about the M-word.

And we are already two levels deep. We just want our life to be good. To do that, we first wanted to get into a good habit, the H-word. And then we looked for a good strategy to get into the good habit, the S-word. Let us scrape those complications and get to the root of the issue.

So, are you trying to be a heavenly figure? Wanna have no negative issues associated with your life? Not that we will discourage from that, but just give a little thought to the fact that, if you are all perfect, people will surely start worshipping you and paparazzi will start following you. To avoid those, you should have a little imperfection.

Being imperfect is probably the most perfect skill we all have. So I will not elaborate. Instead let us imagine how a slightly imperfect person might be. Being so, you will always come remarkably close to all your goals yet you will fail them by only a small margin of your negligible imperfection divided by the number of goals you have. That, is clearly not acceptable. So, let us concentrate our imperfection on a single goal and mess it up while going ahead with the others. And if we are certain we are gonna fail that goal, let us just be a little more imperfect, a little more, a slight amount more, That’s it!

In this way, scrape away every unimportant or relatively less important goal and you would be left with those two or three goals and habits which are probably gonna be the most important for you. So, go ahead and every time you want to complain for having to do hard work for any of those important habits, think of all those habits you had scraped away.

If you still don’t get into a habit, either you must be really big or the habit might be way too small!

Ace your Interview in 5 Easy Steps

8 February 2018

We all have given at least one interview in our life, even if you haven’t, just pretend for the moment that you have! Although with the rise of entrepreneurship, the tradition of giving self interviews, that is when both the interviewer and interviewee is the same person, is becoming increasingly popular, acing an interview still remains as an essential skill for any person, whether dead or alive.

These 5 steps have proved to be the most successful in messing up the aced interview, I mean, acing up the messed interview!

  • Start by defining a random term. Even before you are asked your name, start speaking, as this establishes your dominance in the room. Defining a random term, we suggest the word ‘Abominable’, also adds an epithet to your resumé. And try to give the exact dictionary definition.
  • Arrive in an Ambulance. This will surely earn you the sympathy of the company, you are giving the interview for.
  • Add ‘Doesn’t it’, ‘Isn’t it’ and ‘Shouldn’t it’ after every sentence. For example, if you are asked your name, reply with, “My name is Chandler Bing, isn’t it?”
  • Ask more questions than answering the questions. The previous point can help you out with this. But, to make the most of the situation and make your effort count, you should start asking existential questions, for example, “Do you think this interview is also taking place in a parallel universe? If so, then are our seats interchanged?
  • If you can’t convince, confuse them and if you can’t do that either and get caught doing so, then run for your life. We won’t elaborate but just ensure that you know that, being convincingly confusing and never confusingly convincing, is the shortest path to success.

20,000 Pigs Under the Tree

21 January 2018

Far, far away, in a village inhabited by aliens and humans, there existed a tree, so tall in its height, that you would need a telescope to see its tip, so wide in its breadth, that many people considered it to be a wall and so old in its age that, according to the legends, it had witnessed the formation of the earth!

A fear to go near the tree, made the villagers park their car far from the tree. The fear, as many might recall, was not of the ghastly creatures that called the tree their home or the supernatural paranormal activities which usually occured around it, but rather of the humongous number of the pigs which used to hang out around the great old angiosperm. These pigs, were neither harmless nor harmful, but instead preferred to exist with two legs on either boat. They normally did no harm, but abnormally had a knack for savouring and devouring human flesh, which however, was an addiction they usually kept in check. The only problem, was their number!

There were many, and by many, we mean so many, that many has to be amplified many times and would still be many times smaller than the number, which was confirmed to be 20,000 recently. These pigs spent half of their livers under the tree, and the other half above it.

Nothing else is known about that tree, village or the pigs and that’s why we will end this article right here, for if we don’t, the pigs might give us a surprise visit in our headquarters, and though we love animals, we are afraid that they might scare away our pet penguins!

Infinite Reasons to Chat with only Yourself

7 January 2018

We all have talked with ourselves, when we have been lonely. But, probably as you have realised, though talking with the self is rewarding and fulfilling, it might amplify your loneliness, if not drive you towards insaneness, with you both in the back and the driving seat.

However, psychiatrists, psychologists, psyctshiatris of psychologists and psychologists of psychiatrists have concluded that chatting with yourself, is the secret ingredient which is probably missing from your recipe of success!

So use messenger apps, take two phone numbers or make dual profiles in social media, whatever way you choose, ensure that you continue talking everyday with yourself, for at least the an hour per day! You won’t believe, but talking with yourself has countless benefits, and since they are indeed countless we are not even making the simplest of attempts to list them all here, but instead we will let you discover them yourself by indulging in the act of self chatting!
