Choose how to feel after you wake up from bed

We first make our habits, then our habits make us ~ John Dryden

Have you ever noticed that how you feel in the morning often determines your actions for the rest of the day?

Most of us wake up and we simply go with the flow of our emotions.

If we feel happy, then it’s going to be a good day.

If we feel depressed then it’s going to be a grueling one.

The problem with depending on your emotions in order to do the things that truly matter in…

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Everyone loves the idea of reading a book from cover to cover. It makes us feel we’ve accomplished something very noble. Not only that, but we also feel empowered by the knowledge we’ve absorbed.

The question now becomes:

Why is it so freaking difficult to pick up a book and just read it?

Well, we’ll get to that soon. But first, let me share with you a snippet of my terrible reading habit. In the past two years, I succeeded to read only a single book from introduction to conclusion.

I didn’t even buy the…

In this era of accelerated change, overwhelming complexities, tremendous competition, only the best stand a chance of winning. If you ain’t ready, it’s going to be a rather grueling and ferocious battle.

The question becomes, how can you ensure that you are one step ahead before the war even begins?

During my four years as an undergraduate, I spent a significant amount of my time focusing only on the things that were related to my field, telecommunications engineering. It wasn't until the final semester of my degree program that reality struck me like a lightning bolt.

I suddenly realized there…

What I learned from Hal Elrod about creating a new habit and how I created four new life-transforming habits.

The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable and binds us irrevocably, thought and act — Orison Swett Marden

Remember that moment you decided to stop eating McDonald's or any fast food, or on new year’s eve when you held that last lonely cigarette and took the last deep breathe while savoring the smell emanating from the…

AI is the new Electricity _ Andrew Ng

I was first introduced to the concepts of artificial intelligence in 2017 through Udacity and it was overwhelming. I had no prior knowledge of AI-related concepts, so the terms felt like they were coming from outer space.

For two years, all I knew were just pieces of the puzzle. I had no clue how the pieces fitting together to form the complete picture of Artificial Intelligence.

Luckily, after completing the first semester of my graduate studies in computer science, and also enrolling in Andrew Ng’s machine learning course on Coursera, everything just…

Do me a favor: think back to a day you tried to read or learn something you believed was freaking challenging. What do you see?

You probably sat there, staring at the same page for hours, trying to understand what the hell you were reading. You read it over and over again until you lose count.

Frustration sets in and later, anger slowly finds its way into your mind. You angrily get up, disappointed at yourself. You look at yourself in the mirror and think you must be the dumbest individual to have ever lived.

All of this just because…

We are living in an endless nightmare where everyone is struggling to survive for as long as they possibly can.COVID19 patients gasping for oxygen while the doctors are working tirelessly round the clock to keep patients alive.

Since schools were shut down due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, a significant majority of the global population has been stuck home with limited movement around for months.

While a few people are beginning to come to a realization of how long we probably might be confined indoors, some are still under the delusion, the virus is just going to magically…

We don’t fail because we aren’t smart enough. We fail because we think we ain’t smart enough. We fail because no one ever thought us how to succeed.

To Succeed in education is a process. Some students are lucky enough to have figured it out earlier in our lives by themselves or with the help of someone else. For me, I was lucky to have been surrounded by hard-working sisters in my early years of college who held my hand and thought me how to study and succeed in my studies.

If you have been failing in your courses and…
