I recently came upon a website called secretsofadulthood.com.
The creator of the site shares a few insights & life learnt lessons.
So to kick off my 1st blog post in 2012, I thought I would take a moment to share some of the insights I personally found interesting:
– What’s fun for other people may not be fun for you – and Vice Versa. (This explains why not everyone loves Salsa)
– The days are long, but the years are short. (This is why some days just seem to drag on and on while the years just fly by)
– You can choose what you do, you can’t choose what you like to do. (Don’t waste your time doing things you don’t enjoy. Realise what you really like and stick with it)
– You don’t have to be good at everything. (Nuff said)
– Most decisions don’t require extensive research. (Just like Occam’s Razor implies – the simplest answer is usually the right one)
– You know as much as most people. (Don’t let people intimidate you)
– What you do everyday matters more than what you do once in a while. (If you really want to be good at something or achieve Greatness, you have to put in the work)
I would advise you to go onto the website and see it for yourself .
The creator – Gretchen Rubin is the author of The Happiness Project (a New York Times Best Seller) which is an account of the years she spent test-driving every principle on her path to happiness, from Aristotle to Ben Franklin to Oprah to Martin Seligman.
On her popular blog, The Happiness Project, she posts about her daily adventures in her pursuit of happiness.
Definitely worth a read.
