13. Modern warfare – we should kill ideas not people #Syria

Dalai lama, war. Pinky and Her Brain.

Let’s say you don’t like marmite. And I say, I’m going to have to end your life unless you like marmite and eat it! (I’m reasonable like that). So perhaps we fight, because you really believe that not liking marmite is the thing for you. One or both of us might die. But there’s another … Read more13.

9. Why ‘I’m too busy’ should be eradicated from our vocabulary

I'm too busy is an excuse. Pinky and Her Brain

Have you ever had that thing where someone says to you ‘Sorry I didn’t reply to your message, I’m so busy’? BULLSH*T. I do this bullsh*t too. Sometimes ‘I’m too busy to go to the gym’.

8. The madness of the mind – would you argue with a pot plant?

Don't take yout thoughts so seriously. Pinky and Her Brain

I was walking along the street in London and this homeless guy was arguing with a pot plant. He shouted at it ‘you tw*t!’. Arguing with a pot plant – he’s got to be a little insane right?

2. Decision making made easy

Decision making made easy. If it's not a hell yeah, it's a no. James Altucher. Pinky and Her Brain

First up – I know sometimes we have to make decisions to do things that we may not jump at the prospect of doing – because we have responsibilities, people to take care of and so on. This is more about when you have a real choice. Whether that choice is about attending a social … Read more2. Decision making made easy

1. 7 rules I broke, because I wanted to choose myself

Choose yourself. James Altucher. Pinky and Her Brain

Inspired by ‘Choose Yourself’ James Altucher. In my conservative Indian upbringing, there is not really such a thing as ‘choosing yourself’. Generations of old school Hindu Punjabi tradition – although softening – are still in full swing in my life experience. As a female in this environment, my experience is that life is to be … Read more1. 7 rules I broke, because I wanted to choose myself
