Stop reading blogs

So, here’s the thing. After endlessly scrolling on WordPress and Medium, I realized: we read hundreds of blog posts every year. Some of us do that maybe every month. And let’s be honest for a minute.

On how many of those things you read did you ever take action? How many things did you actually execute that made your life better?

Think about it, and if you can come up with with an answer, please let me know. I’m curious.

I’m not saying all the things you read on blogs are completely useless. There is some great content out there, but most of it is just list of things for you to follow in order to make your life better in one way or the other. And even if it’s actionable, it doesn’t really create a value in your life or help anyone, except maybe the person who wrote it in the first place.

For many of us, this huge amount of content on the internet is a never ending spiral that only confuses us as readers and move our focus away from what’s truly important. It takes the focus from DOING. From taking ACTION. From figuring out what works for YOU and what doesn’t.

It’s not worth to know-it-all “in theory” but having no idea what works in the real world for you.

You need to find your own solutions, and only you can do that for yourself. Go out there, experience things, test, fail, tweak and repeat. Until it starts to make sense. Until it works out.

So do yourself a favor and stop reading blogs. Stop reading my blog. And focus on what’s truly important. Focus on DOING. Focus on getting your shit out there. Focus on getting shit done.

The simple honest fact

“Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by something you love.”

Let’s move forward

One step at a time. That’s how it’s done. That’s what I’ve been hearing all my life. Nobody told me what to do when you are stuck at one place. What are you supposed to do when you don’t know where to put the next step? I went to school for 15 years of my life. Never did anyone, and I mean not even a single person, talked about this. I still sometimes wonder why they don’t teach this stuff. I guess they themselves don’t know. Maybe they are stuck too.

But fortunately, life is a good teacher. It teaches you everything, using practical examples. Few of those still hurt. Physically and emotionally. But it goes on. Lessons are learnt. And among those lessons, I discovered something. Something Fun. Exciting. Scary. Risky. Worth it. Along my journey, I’m learning how to keep moving. Even after I’m stuck at the same place. Or with the same thing. A friend of mine told me, if you don’t get what you really want, think of it as something that happened to you which is good for you. How? Because there’s something better waiting to happen to you.

I laughed.

I asked him, what if I really want it and not the 2.0 version that’s in store for me?

Trust me, you don’t really want it. You deserve better. That’s what he replied.

Sometimes people do make sense. Not practically. But in another dimension of this mystical world. It’s hard to understand them but when you experience what they said to you a while ago, it all makes sense in a perfecto way. Same happened with me. I listened to my dear mate, and it was worth it.

We all deserve better. But we still keep on chasing things we think are best for us. If you’ve put your side of effort, and you still get nowhere, just let it go. This is not giving up. This is striving for better. As simple as that. Let it go. It might come back to you later, but the chances are that the 2.0 version is already in store for you. And when you realize it, in that exact moment, the smile on your face will say it all. You’ll be glad. And happy. Truly happy.

Different people call this by different names. Moving on. Progress. Advancement. Take off. Blah blah blah.

I like to keep it simple. Let’s keep having fun.




We are here to drink beer!

“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”

― Charles Bukowski


This person had a point.

And a good one!


Go all the way

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”


― Charles Bukowski

Uncertain romance

Well they may wear those classic polos,
With faded shorts and fake smiles,
I’m sure the sperrys don’t tell the truth,
Though you may take a while,

And there’s the truth that you can’t see,
They probably would like to throw a punch at me,
Only if you could see them like I do,
There’s a chance that you’ll agree,

You know what’s a funny thing?
Hold on, we’ll tell them tonight,
But your mind is already made up,
Let me ask are you always right?

And it doesn’t take no Sherlock Holmes,
To see a bit different around here,
How hard you make it for yourself?
Agree that there’s no certain romance going on there,

Don’t get me wrong though there’s boys in bands,
And others who’d like to hold your hands,
And just because he’s got a couple of cash,
He thinks its okay to act like an ass,

When you can be the ocean that bleeds into the sky,
You still wanna be the sand I have no idea why,
Maybe your mind is already made up,
Just tell the truth don’t you lie..
