Memory Box!

She just entered in the big white room.

It was lit like cool day light. White! But one could tell where the walls met in this white room.

She was standing in the center of the floor. She closed her eyes.

The room drifted into darkness, it wasn’t white anymore.

After a few minutes she gasped and took a deep breathe while opening her eyes. hhhhhhh!

Who is GenerationZ?

GenerationZ consists of those born in 1995 or later. As per a 2017 media research report, the GenerationZ is 26% of the total audience overall and the Millennials are now trailing behind at 22% of the total audience.

Just so it’s clear:
A “Millennial” is a person reaching young adulthood around the year 2000.
Generation Z also known as Post-Millennials is the demographic cohort following the Millennials.

Here is a graph from that report –

A few weeks back when I went for one of my long morning walks, I was passing by a bunch of kids in the joggers’ park. Kids who were in the age spectrum of 7-9 year old. One of those kids were having a cell phone, which looked like a good 10000 bucks phone to me, was talking to someone. I didn’t mean eavesdropping. But I could hear that small boy asking her girlfriend, “Hey baby, where are you? I’ve been waiting for you for half an hour, are you coming or should I go with my boys for a ride.”

My reaction to this was, “WTF” in my mind. I was standing there for a while before I could continue my walk.

New year resolutions – 2018

Making new year resolutions has now become a habit, which I want to keep on cultivating because it helps me move in the right direction throughout the year. I tend to go back each month to this resolution list and see my progress. It is an interesting and forward-moving process.

2017 is over and a new year (2018) is here. For this year’s new year resolutions list, I’m putting in a few fresh resolutions and keeping a few from the last year. Why carry on with the old ones you say? It is because now I’ve started to know myself better than before and what keeps me happy and content.

For some people, new year resolutions are some things from which they want to break out, like a bad habit. For some, it is something new which they want to learn or do. For me it has all three, break out of something which I don’t actually like, learn something new and do something which I’m carrying forward from last year’s resolution list and haven’t yet completed.

Here you go.

As Ludwig famously said –

Less is More.

We are always running behind something and someone. When we don’t really know the meaning of this philosophy, we may want everything we see.

In the past 10 years of my life, I’ve slowly started to comprehend this fact. That less is more and this eventually became a fundamental value of whatever I do.

There are many other learnings like this which shaped me as a person in past 10 years. I thought to share these with you, as some of you might be in your twenties and find them helpful. So I jotted down these 26 learnings from past 10 years of my life as A to Z below.

How did I learn them you ask? I have learned these from various books, people and experiences.

I wish I had known these 26 things when I was 20 years old but here they are for you. The 26 reminders –
