Life is Short

via Vishal Khandelwal

Vishal has a lovely article, on the shortness of life, over at Safal Niveshak.
That is where I stole the beautiful picture above from. (you can click the pic for a larger version.)

“So you must match time’s swiftness with your speed in using it, and you must drink quickly as though from a rapid stream that will not always flow.”
—Seneca


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
—Mark Twain


“You live as if you were destined to live forever, no thought of your frailty ever enters your head, of how much time has already gone by you take no heed. You squander time as if you drew from a full and abundant supply, though all the while that day which you bestow on some person or thing is perhaps your last.”
—Seneca

Want to Write? Here’s a Simple 3 Step Process

In the vein of the old zen koan about enlightenment or Seth’s drip by drip approach to affecting change in the world, James Clear offers a simple 3 step process to becoming a writer (or painter, or programmer, or guitarist, weight loss person, or gymnast.)

  1. Publish on a schedule. Consistency develops ability.
  2. Share your writing publicly. Writing is a magnet. It attracts like-minded people.
  3. Write about what fascinates you. You don't need to be an expert. Curiosity leads to expertise.

It’s simple.
It’s not easy :)
Walking the path as I have, I can attest to both, its difficulty as well as its efficacy :)
