Horrible Advice

Screw that! Accept where I am in life according to whom? No one is allowed to tell me about my “position in life” because it’s nobody’s business. And where I am right now has nothing to do with where I want to be. And if I want to be somewhere else, you shouldn’t try to […]

Alexander The Great by Norman F. Cantor

Alexander The Great indeed was deserving of his name. A King of Kings, a Conquerors’ Conqueror, and a mere mortal who through acts of courage, agency, intelligence, vision, relentless persistence, and sheer force of will aspired, touched upon, and quite frankly deserved a stature of deification. It’s quite absurd how some modern onlookers of history […]

No More Mr. Nice Guy

You’re not doing yourself any favors by putting yourself at the end of the line behind everyone else in your life. The reason people say that nice guys finish last is that they do. Nice guys tend not to ask for what they want and no one will ever give you anything unless you ask […]

Creativity Merry-Go-Round

Creativity could very well be the highest-paying skill in the world. It’s narrowly defined when it’s limited to those who associate with entertainment industries like actors, singers, writers, etc. In reality, the umbrella of creativity is widely spread above most disciplines and professions. There’s an element of creativity in everything that you do. As a […]
