Being Watchful Of Our Doings (IM 896)

What we do everyday becomes a habit and we are the reflection of what we do everyday. The way we talk to others or to ourselves reveals our character. The way we deal with different situations shows our strength and weakness. Every step we take is the reflection of our character, our mindset, our loopholes,…

Short Run and Long Run: Acting Accordingly (IM 864)

In short run, deadline is near and time is short. In long run, deadline is far and we have more time. More time means more resources. In short run, decisions seems more urgent but also unimportant while in long run, decision is important as it makes the long run sustainable and productive. In short run,…

Being a Fool in The Right Place (IM 849)

Ray Bradbury once said, “We’re all fools, all the time. It’s just we’re a different kind each day. We think, I’m not a fool today. I’ve learned my lesson. I was a fool yesterday but not this morning. Then tomorrow we find out that, yes, we were fool yesterday too.” We, humans, can’t run away…

Underestimating uncertainty (IM 836)

It is a human nature that we overestimate what we know and underestimate the uncertainty. We always tend to underestimate the uncertain events. We just can’t predict. We humans are so bad at prediction. None of us predicted the likelihood of computers 40 years ago, the internet 20 years ago, Tesla 10 years ago and…

The error of confirmation (IM 825)

In almost all of the cases, the past events and our past experiences determine our decision for the future. This could be the biggest error we are making everyday. Since the world is dynamic, the predication of future based on past events is a losing bet. Take an example of this Coronavirus, we never expected…

“shiny” objects (IM 809)

One of the biggest traps we encounter in our life is getting distracted by some “shiny” objects in our way towards greatness. These “shiny” objects can be materialistic objects or a person or any short-terms moments. We face a situation where these things come up in our way from nowhere and seem to be really…

Self and Technology (IM 776)

Self is not universal, and it changes over time and situation. For an example: Cyberneticians came to a different notion of self, accessible from the outside, identified with feedback systems—an account of the self that emerged from Norbert Wiener’s engineering work on weapons systems during World War II. Today’s world, we see a new notion…

Fear (IM 736)

Fear is more crippling than the actual consequences. We fear mostly for the future as we don’t clearly see the consequences. Fear has become one of the downgrading factors of our life and postponing our work because of fear of not getting it right has always affected most of the people. The important truth about…

Mapping the present with the future. (IM 715)

Everyone has the weakness and that weakness makes us anxious most of the time. This might take place when you are in a meeting with boss or date with your partner. This weakness might make you nervous when you are presenting in a public or expressing your ideas. There is a way to overcome this…

The result of predicting the future (IM 568)

We often spend days on predicting how our action will shape and impact our future and most of the time we are wrong. And we spend rest of the days worrying about the action and regret that our prediction didn’t go our way. We try to control our future by sitting in a small room…
