The Discipline Gap.

I didn’t really plan on writing about this book, The Confidence Gap, and it’s not because the information in it wasn’t valuable, but to me, it just wasn’t anything new. This is in no way to sound snobbish, but I’ve read  (more than I can remember really) so many books that talk about confidence, motivation,…

What You Can Learn From Crime and Punishment

There’s a handful of books that will eternally go down as the “Greatest Books of All-Time”, one of them, undoubtedly being Dostoevsky’s Crime And Punishment. If you’ve not already recognized the title, I’m sure the name of the book at least sounds familiar. And if you are familiar, you’ll know there are hundreds even thousands…

Why Can’t I Keep My Room Clean?

For as long as I can remember, I am and have always been unorganized, at least, to the uninformed viewer looking in.  My desk at work is messy. My desk at home is messy. My room is messy. My living room is messy. My bathroom is messy. My kitchen is messy. It’s all messy.  And…

The Road Less Travelled isn’t always the empty one.

If you read the title of this post, and you thought to yourself, “That quote sounds familiar”, you would be right. (Bonus points if you can name the recent book that I took it from.) I’ll reveal the title at the end, but if you already know it, then you’ll probably know where I’m going…

But Which One Am I?

Similar to my last post, this topic I wanna speak about I feel as if only a handful of people will understand EXACTLY where I’m coming from. And to those of you that do understand, I hope that this serves as a reminder:You’re not alone. But what is it that I want to speak about?…

Don’t Change Too Much

If there were two little words that I’ve probably used more than any other two words, it would be these: “I’m sorry” You might already know where I’m going with this, especially because of the title, but I want speak on this topic anyway. And I’m not going to say anything mind-blowingly new here. Several…

Everyone Is Alone

I’ve just finished up the book, Island, by Aldous Huxley, and I’ve gotta say, it’s been one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time, possibly since the last Huxley book I read, A Brave New World, which I wrote a post about that here: A Brave New World. Anyway, there’s this scene towards the end…

Was the Rational Mind Inevitable?

There are quite a few number of atheists, specifically, new-atheists, who have this notion of religion in that they believe that it was an unnecessary by-product by way of what is called a “Genetic Fallacy”. Basically, it’s the idea that just because a certain trait or characteristic, even way of acting in the world, doesn’t…

Message In Your Misfortunes

I’m reading a book called The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonathan Haidt, and although I’m not too far into it, I came across a part that really struck a chord with me. It was a speech by the Chief Justice, John Roberts. You can find it here: Chief Justice, John Roberts But I’ll go ahead…

Is Pain Real?

I haven’t written in quite a while. I think it might be two weeks since, and I apologize, if anyone is actually paying attention to me. I’ll tell you that there’s been a lot going on in my life, much more than I’m comfortable or willing to share, other than simply that there really has…
