“I think it is possible for ordinary men to become extraordinary”. – Elon Musk
This maiden edition of ideas worth sharing includes everything from how to avoid living a mediocre life, living a life of no regrets, the karma of success and what could really happen when things go according to plan.
Let’s get kicking…
“We instinctively think we are above average. We don’t want to be average. Yet ironically, we want to be normal and have the same interests as most people do. We don’t want to be different and stand out. Having the same interests, routines, habits as everyone else ensures that we stay in the majority and are hence part of the ‘in-group’. But by design, we are setting up ourselves to be average”.
Habits, routines and methods are the keys that made Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Bill Gates great. And you could be great too.

“Good health affords us boundless freedom we seldom realize until we no longer have it”
Bronnie Ware, an Australian nurse and counselor who spent most of her career life caring for terminally ill people, most of whom had less than 12 weeks to live, discovered the 5 biggest regrets they had while on their death bed.
“The best way to grow is to help others grow”.
This age old story about a farmer who shares his best seeds with his neighboring farmers shows how you can benefit immensely just by offering to help.

It’s not like people planned to be secretive and deceptive. In fact, we would all like to trust someone, to share our deepest secrets and hear out our problems. But after years of getting hurt and taken advantage of for being too open, we have naturally built a wall to prevent other people from getting too close to us.
The questions here will help you figure out the personalities and capabilities of anyone.
“What happens when everything goes according to plan is that, well, everything goes according to plan. But what happens when everything always go according to plan is that you get addicted to things going according to plan”
And that could be a bad thing.
From today, you can start looking at the events of your life in a different way.
That will be all for today… Tweet
