A hacker is someone who is more concerned with achieving an objective than following a prescribed process. In other words, hackers care more about what needs to get done than how it should get done. As a result, hackers often come up with innovative ways to get things done.
Fear and Instinctive Awareness
Warning: Irrelevant facts and random rant ahead. Proceed at your own risk.
I am sure you know how it feels when you take a glimpse of the earth from the top of a very tall building. Or when you look into a valley from the top of a cliff or mountain, standing on the edge.
What the internet is doing to our brains?
Email. Tweet. Facebook. Tweet. Email. Blog posts. Email. Video. Cat photos. Facebook. Wikipedia. YouTube. Tweet.
This constant flow of information is a huge distraction and it eventually turns into a bad habit. You forget the things that are important, really really important.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat
A Classic Example Of Hypocricy
In a small town in America, a person decided to open up his bar
business, which was right opposite to a church. The church & its
congregation started a campaign to block the bar from opening with
petitions and prayed daily against his business.

Happiness And Success
Happiness and Success:
- are two different things.
- comes and goes. comes back again. stays. goes back.
- are relative in nature
- appear meaningless after a point.
- cannot be compared
- changes constantly.
- cannot be defined.
- depends on little things.
- are both a state of mind.
- doesn’t define an individual, organization or entity.
You cannot be successful and then happy. You have to be happy first, only then you will be successful.
However, the definition of success keeps evolving with time. You’re the instrument, moving the goal post of what success looks like. You’re the instrument, you move the goal post of happiness.
I have found the shortest route to being happy -
- work all the time
- learn new things.
- don’t compare.
- don’t expect.
- live for a cause.
“Being happy” is a habit, it starts and ends with you.
