Don’t be that guy


You know that one guy who wouldn’t write his first blog post because he’s waiting for that perfect topic that’s going to make him famous?

Or that guy who never shows you his amazing movie scripts because¬†they’re¬†not ready yet?

Or that one girl who won’t stop complaining to you about how un-perfect she looks?

Or that girl who wouldn’t go up to make her pitch because it’s not the right time yet?

Or that one guy who wouldn’t take a damn risk because the conditions are not right?
Or the market isn’t ready?
Or he’s waiting for a better opportunity?
Or he’s just unlucky?
Or bad things always happen to him?
Or he can’t take another rejection?

Yes. Don’t be those people.
Please.

Because there’s never any perfect, ready, right time, right conditions, right market, better opportunity, luck, or anything like that.

Especially, luck.

You’re not perfect


I’ve seen that many people allow emotions to get the best of them.

When there’s really no room for emotions in the big leagues.

Passion? Yes. That’s different.

But being clouded by the insecurities is a huge vulnerability.

That’s what I think and have seen around me.

So instead of dwelling on our shortcomings, I instinctively feel we should focus
our time and triple down on our strengths and passion.

Because we all have so many shortcomings.

No one’s perfect.

No one.

Not even you.

So stop acting like one.

It happens


Why didn’t you get that job?

Why didn’t she call you back?

Why did no one like your blog post?

Why did you fall in love?

Why did you say no when you knew you wanted to say yes?

Why did it rain when you planned everything out so perfectly?

That’s the thing. It happens.

It just happens.

Sometimes there’s no explanation to things that happen with us or around us.
Sometimes they just happen without any reason.
Sometimes there’s no logic or pattern.
And we try so hard to figure out the answer to the big WHY.
Just to see at the end of the road that there’s no answer.
There’s nothing that can tell you WHY.

Because sometimes, it just happens.

Just kiss the girl


Most of the times, I do not understand women.

They can be complicated, complex, highly intelligent, and clever sentient beings that never seem to follow the laws of nature.

This makes it hard for most of the guys to get their message across.

And thinking along these lines, many guys follow “rules” and “advice” given to them by others.

They read everything related to the subject matter they can find.

Just to be ready for when the opportunity is right.

Waiting for that perfect kiss.

And we apply the same logic to every other aspect of our lives. Our hobbies, a career change, or anything different we’d like to do.

We keep reading about it and finally when the opportunity comes, we feel like we’re not ready for it, because we don’t have the experience or skills to do it.

Think about this: why would you spend all this time and energy reading about and researching? Just so you can have the perfect kiss?

Bullshit.

Just kiss her. And you’ll learn things you won’t ever find out by reading and researching.

Things like the actual experience of doing it, trying and stumbling awkwardly, and the “chemistry”.

And that’s true for everything.

So stop preparing for it.

Just kiss the girl.
