Facing Life’s Harsh Truths…

Amigos and Amigas, this post may be depressing ( / inspirational)… :/

…but for what it is, it is the grim reality that you will realize one day, if you haven’t already.

So, this means that you can choose to live in ignorance, or carry on and read some of life’s harsh truths (and potential solutions to these truths 😀 ).

Red pill (truth), or blue pill (ignorance)?

As they say in Spain, “no seas un coño“, or “May you use them to your advantage” … Continue reading

The Game Everyone Plays: Life.

Remember the Sims?

Many atrocities against humanity were committed in 'The Sims 2' (2004).

…How can we not? So many died in our hands in ‘The Sims 2’ (2004).

The Sims… that game where you control a character (called a ‘Sim‘), and lead its life.

There’s much to learn from the Sims, as you can liken how they live, to real life…

(For instance, you can actively lead a Sim to become a highly skilled and paid professional, or just lay back and witness your Sim lead a mediocre life.)

The main message is that if you put in no effort, you will have a mediocre life.

Work Smarter – Pomodoro Technique, improved.

Working for too long in one sitting, can cause you to ‘crash‘ and ‘burnout’.

In layman terms, this means that you will lose interest in your work, lose your productivity and say, “I’m gonna do this tomorrow” (procrastination).

Burnouts cause loss of productivity.

Amigos, it’s time to work smarter, not harder…

Using Google Calendar to track and achieve your goals.

Using Google Calendars is not much different than using a physical paper Calendar… but, it is much more convenient for us in this day and age.

Google Calendar is something that I have found to be very useful in university (aka college) and in life.

  • I have made custom calendars, in relation to my goals (as recommended in the previous post, to track and achieve your goals).
  • I have set up free reminders (email and SMS… yes, that’s SMS on your phone!) to remind me about future events like exams, study periods, coming assignment due dates, and other important and fun stuff :/
  • Since Google Calendar is ‘in the cloud’, you can access it anywhere with internet connection – my house, uni library, my smartphone, at the cafe with wifi etc.

Best thing of all: it was easy… easy as pie my friends. Yum!
