We are by far the most social species on Earth. Even ants have nothing on us. If I wanted to predict your happiness, and I could know only one thing about you, I wouldn’t want to know your gender, religion, health, or income. I’d want to know about your social network—about your friends and family and the strength of your bonds with them.
Nylon is real; it’s just not natural. Synthetic happiness is perfectly real; it’s just man-made. Synthetic happiness is what we produce when we don’t get what we want, and natural happiness is what we experience when we do. They have different origins, but they are not necessarily different in terms of how they feel. One is not obviously better than the other.
Jay Shetty the author of this article has nicely explained what education actually means.
A very engaging topic after politics could be the education & education system where everyone is ready to suggest their own idea. All country has a unique education system, where not only students but their parents & teachers learn & gain knowledge of various fields via a different medium.
Jay Shetty has said we do not need to change anything, we just need to start education which could be a very good move.
Take an example of startups, we can educate the young generation with the help of someone else idea, but the point is people do not accept practical solution, Right?
Share your views, maybe someone will learn something from you. If not other I'll definitely learn from you :)
We take in 23,000 breaths in a day. Breathing indicate we're alive yet. But many of you are unaware about how to breath in perfect way? The author has written it in this article. It'll be wonder while reading this article you'll become aware about how you're breathing :)
Take A Perfect Breath, Well I Do It & People Ask "Why Such Deep Breathing You Need?"
That chips can track all the records. Could be harmful & people end up there with life.
The chip doesn’t just monitor heart-rate — it analyzes brain activity, blood pressure, and makes its own conclusions on the cop’s behalf. It can’t tell you exactly what someone’s thinking, but it can tell you what they’re feeling with 95% accuracy. And when Fiona said she had no idea what happened, the app on Sean’s phone read ‘LYING’ in big red letters.
People didn’t like it at first, but ‘progress is never recognized as progress at the time.’ At first, the tracking chips were voluntary, and then it became national policy to insert them into babies’ heads at birth. This way there was no pain involved — no pain you’d remember, anyway — and the kids would be safe for the rest of their lives. Some people didn’t like this — ‘there’s always someone who doesn’t like something’ — but by the time Fiona was born, nobody thought twice.
Excellent!! So much written about S/W Engineers, Code, Programs.
What made programming so difficult was that it required you to think like a computer.
Fact that the programmer didn’t work on a problem directly, but rather spent their days writing out instructions for a machine.
People are playing computer inside their heads.” Programmers were like chess players trying to play with a blindfold on—so much of their mental energy is spent just trying to picture where the pieces are that there’s hardly any leftover to think about the game itself.
Have you ever felt distracted?
Yes, the author thought the same & when anyone faces a problem then often try to tackle it with the proper solution.
It was my bad that I found this article at the EOD, but still will help me at least for a month I guess!!
Happened with many of you & with me too-
When two people are talking, the mere presence of a smartphone resting on a table is enough to change the character of their conversation.
Some of you might have tried it-
Distraction is your brain ducking challenging feelings such as boredom, loneliness, insecurity, fatigue and uncertainty. These are the internal triggers – the root causes – that prompt you to find the comfort of distraction and open a browser tab, Twitter, or email, instead of focusing on the matter at hand. Once you identify these internal triggers, you can decide to respond in a more advantageous manner. You won’t always be able to control how you feel – but you can learn to control how you react to the way you feel. A trigger that once sent you to Twitter can perhaps lead instead to 10 deep breaths.
Your brain, however, will thank you for giving it one less distraction from whatever you’re focused on
-Software Engineers are motivated to solve epic problems with solutions that people love.
-Most smaller products are the result of hundreds of failed individual value attempts and dozens of failed group level value attempts, and large products and services are the results of tens of thousands of failed individual value attempts, and hundreds of failed group level value attempts.
-In alignment with management systems theory which postulates that management most know how to do the work, virtually all of the leading technical companies that are creating new value and transforming the world are led by people who have professionally done the work of creating new things for several years. It’s also interesting to note that many of these leaders are software engineers.
Use Google without having a Google account. Just never have a Google account. Delete all cookies on whatever machine you use and then use a browser that has lots of privacy plugins — Firefox with eight or 10 plugins is an example — ghostery, ad blockers etc. DuckDuckGo is a browser that emphasizes user privacy, but it ends up relying on Bing a lot. Bing is a fully self-sufficient search engine, the only one other than Google, that isn’t attached to as big a manipulation engine behind the scenes.
Facebook and Google are the only two big tech companies that are unable to diversify their profit centers. They’re addicted to their stupid business model in the same way that a petro state is addicted to oil. You know, once you’re hooked on oil as your national economy, you just kind of stay there. And that’s exactly what’s happened with Google.
Yes, few people reserve time for walking as a good habit. They do suggest it to others.
The author could have mentioned a lot of changes at the physical & mental level.
I'd like to read comments from you all, how you snatch time from daily routine just to walk a few steps? & how it's helping you?
We would never dream of selecting as a friend. It is in the end simply a strange, yet constant, the feature of the human condition that we are tethered emotionally for life to someone who is both an irritating stranger and the person who wept for joy when we were born.
How wonderful experience it would be of 14 hours 7 minutes.
“Everesting” is straightforward: Pick a hill, any hill, and go up and down it until you attain 29,029 feet of climbing. Friends can support you, but you must do it under your own power and in a single effort — no sleeping.
