[ 2 min read ] Most parents assume that it’s their job to make their children’s lives better. My take, that’s a completely wrong approach. They should be solely focused on making the most of their own lives. Why? Because when they think that their job in life is to... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] All those well-meaning, experienced adults. They want to be the saviours of the young and inexperienced. They want to protect young adults from making the biggest mistake in their lives — picking impractical college education. They have a mission. To save the mankind from people with impractical...

[ 1 min read ] Our chances of surviving and thriving in this world won’t go up just because we’ll do what our parents tell us. They like to think that their children will only fare well in their lives if they follow the script they (the parents) offer them.... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] Parents gave us a lot of love, raised us, paid for summer vacation and gave us toys and stuff, but it doesn’t mean we should offer them our lives as a token of appreciation. That’s not our role here, provide our parents with a “success... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] It’s not bad that you don’t know what you want to study, or that you don’t know what you’re passionate about when you’re in your late teenage years / early 20s. Nothing bad about that. What is bad is that you dismissed your interests (maybe... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] He thinks (independently). He is creative. He doesn’t take anything at face value. He has the guts to question the authority (someone who has more perceived power, or who could be viewed as an expert on life). He wants to explore and test new things... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] I hear it right and left. That’s what we all are as parents. Proud. Never or almost never of ourselves. Always of someone else. Some other member of our family. We don’t say it to ourselves. We almost never hear from ourselves “I’m proud of... Continue reading

Before I did the unthinkable I was a “success story”. A young lawyer, in his early 30s, with over 10 years worth of experience, considered a “successful” young person by most everyone. Everyone but myself, as it turned out. I didn’t want this bullshit kind of success. This kind of... Continue reading
