Why Do We Forget Most Of The Things We Read?

10 Books That I Read In 2019

Have you ever noticed what is the thing most common in the most successful people in the world?
Reading.
Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Imran Khan, Dan Pena, Jeff Bezos... all these leaders are good readers. They read several books a month. If you are already a reader that's well and good but if you are not, try to get started from now. Because a book is an extract of years of experience of its author. You can gain that giant amount of experience in a matter of hours. It is a good way to utilize free time too. 
I personally love to read. There is no specific subject I read about but apart from my subject (computer science) I prefer to read about just personal development and history. However, I am trying to add more categories per year. There are arguments in favor of reading fiction but I would rather go for reading biographies. To avoid getting bored of reading, I do not read two consecutive books on the same subject. This is my personal opinion. Of course you can make y…

'Being yourself' Can Actually Ruin Your Life

There is a time that comes in everyone's life at least once called bad time or hard time. At that time, you feel so fucked up that nothing makes any sense. You feel like some invisible evil power has blocked inflow of ideas to your mind. You have a burning desire to do something that can "change the world" or do something similar but you are doing nothing at all. You fly like a bewildered butterfly and ask some wisdom-guy:
I don't know what to do...
I don't know where to start and how start...
I don't know how to do the things that I want to do...
I don't know what to do with my life...
And they say the magical words in the most mystical way:
"Be yourself."
You roll your eyes up, go to ecstasy and feel the magic. You rush to your home and start doing the things you can do. But unfortunately that magic does not last for too long and bang. You are back to your old awful situation.
Actually, these words sounds so powerful that we start believing i…

5 Mistakes that I've Made: You Don't Repeat It.

unsplash-logo
Being human, all of us are subject to make mistakes. Mistakes which can take us down to the hell or up to the sky. No body wants to make a single mistake but it just happens. It happens without our intention. I haven't heard of anyone who intentionally make mistakes again and again.
What the word mistake means to me is if we set a goal and take actions to achieve those goals and we mis our target, we call our action a mistake. It means we failed to hit our target by taking an action with a bad timing or in a wrong way. We plan, we prepare and pursue towards our goal. If we mis, we get an unwanted reaction which nobody loves. It is up to us how do we react to the reaction. Either we repeat the same mistake, which sounds foolish, doesn't it? yes it does sound foolish. or we learn from it and change our course of action.
So I can say that there are two sides of a mistake too. Here I will share with you 5 mistakes that I have made which I don't want y…

QUESTION: How to choose a career path as a student?

If you are a student and you are confused about your study area or it is hard for you to decide a career path then congratulations, you are not alone. Almost every student is feeling the same. It is the beginning of tough time that every successful person you see today has been through. You are not any special. It is a panic for everyone but the level of intensity vary from person to person.

I will use students and people interchangeably.

Some people get good mentor-ship while some have got a good luck which reduces their pain in some way. But many students have to figure out their way by own. Sounds disheartening, isn’t it? It’s OK. Get over it.

I was sort of the latter kind of student but luckily at the end of my degree I meet with my most respected mentors. Whenever I have to make a choice, I surely contact them and request them for their advice. It does not mean that I follow 100% of the advice all the time but it makes like more than 50% of my decision.

Here, I am going to share …
