Call them Slogans. Call them Motivation

Eternal pursuit.
Imagine this.
Bringing solutions.
Everybody needs a break.
Be the leader.
Comfort of your home.
Beauty of simplicity.
Thinking ahead.
We are one.


Open your heart by weeding out all desires and by harboring only one longing—the longing for union with the Ultimate Reality. That Ultimate Reality is not to be sought in the changing things of external environment, but in one’s own being.-

Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“Never give up, never look down and never look back. Always move forward in life. Don’t let anyone make you feel as if you don’t belong or unworthy of… ever. Those that do are just not strong enough to handle such greatness. Be proud of who you are. Always walk with your head high, you are never alone.”

Date certain

One of the most expensive things a service business or freelancer can do is promise that work will be done by a certain day. Which is something we need to do, of course, but we should charge appropriately. “It’ll be done soon,” should be way cheaper than, “It’ll be done at exactly 11 am on Tuesday.”

And one of the most important things we can do to focus our energy and commitment is be prepared to promise a date certain. It sharpens everything.

Provoke like a mentor – Quotes collected via

“Say ‘provoking’ again. Your mouth looks provocative when you do.”
— Becca Fitzpatrick (Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1))
Mother Teresa
“These are the few ways we can practice humility:

To speak as little as possible of one’s self.

To mind one’s own business.

Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.

To avoid curiosity.

To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.

To pass over the mistakes of others.

To accept insults and injuries.

To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.

To be kind and gentle even under provocation.

Never to stand on one’s dignity.

To choose always the hardest.”
— Mother Teresa (The Joy in Loving: A Guide to Daily Living)

Soren Kierkegaard
“The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly.”
— Søren Kierkegaard (Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard)
William S. Burroughs
“There is nothing more provocative than minding your own business.”
— William S. Burroughs (The Place of Dead Roads)
Soraya Chemaly
“Anger is an assertion of rights and worth. It is communication, equality, and knowledge. It is intimacy, acceptance, fearlessness, embodiment, revolt, and reconciliation. Anger is memory and rage. It is rational thought and irrational pain. Anger is freedom, independence, expansiveness, and entitlement. It is justice, passion, clarity, and motivation. Anger is instrumental, thoughtful, complicated, and resolved. In anger, whether you like it or not, there is truth.

Anger is the demand of accountability, It is evaluation, judgment, and refutation. It is reflective, visionary, and participatory. It’s a speech act, a social statement, an intention, and a purpose. It’s a risk and a threat. A confirmation and a wish. It is both powerlessness and power, palliative and a provocation. In anger, you will find both ferocity and comfort, vulnerability and hurt. Anger is the expression of hope.

How much anger is too much? Certainly not the anger that, for many of us, is a remembering of a self we learned to hide and quiet. It is willful and disobedient. It is survival, liberation, creativity, urgency, and vibrancy. It is a statement of need. An insistence of acknowledgment. Anger is a boundary. Anger is boundless. An opportunity for contemplation and self-awareness. It is commitment. Empathy. Self-love. Social responsibility. If it is poison, it is also the antidote. The anger we have as women is an act of radical imagination. Angry women burn brighter than the sun.

In the coming years, we will hear, again, that anger is a destructive force, to be controlled. Watch carefully, because not everyone is asked to do this in equal measure. Women, especially, will be told to set our anger aside in favor of a kinder, gentler approach to change. This is a false juxtaposition. Reenvisioned, anger can be the most feminine of virtues: compassionate, fierce, wise, and powerful. The women I admire most—those who have looked to themselves and the limitations and adversities that come with our bodies and the expectations that come with them—have all found ways to transform their anger into meaningful change. In them, anger has moved from debilitation to liberation.

Your anger is a gift you give to yourself and the world that is yours. In anger, I have lived more fully, freely, intensely, sensitively, and politically. If ever there was a time not to silence yourself, to channel your anger into healthy places and choices, this is it.”
— Soraya Chemaly (Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women’s Anger)

C.G. Jung
“Because we cannot discover God’s throne in the sky with a radiotelescope or establish (for certain) that a beloved father or mother is still about in a more or less corporeal form, people assume that such ideas are “not true.” I would rather say that they are not “true” enough, for these are conceptions of a kind that have accompanied human life from prehistoric times, and that still break through into consciousness at any provocation.

Modern man may assert that he can dispose with them, and he may bolster his opinion by insisting that there is no scientific evidence of their truth. Or he may even regret the loss of his convictions. But since we are dealing with invisible and unknowable things (for God is beyond human understanding, and there is no means of proving immortality), why should we bother about evidence? Even if we did not know by reason our need for salt in our food, we should nonetheless profit from its use. We might argue that the use of salt is a mere illusion of taste or a superstition; but it would still contribute to our well-being. Why, then, should we deprive ourselves of views that would prove helpful in crises and would give a meaning to our existence?

And how do we know that such ideas are not true? Many people would agree with me if I stated flatly that such ideas are probably illusions. What they fail to realize is that the denial is as impossible to “prove” as the assertion of religious belief. We are entirely free to choose which point of view we take; it will in any case be an arbitrary decision.

There is, however, a strong empirical reason why we should cultivate thoughts that can never be proved. It is that they are known to be useful. Man positively needs general ideas and convictions that will give a meaning to his life and enable him to find a place for himself in the universe. He can stand the most incredible hardships when he is convinced that they make sense; he is crushed when, on top of all his misfortunes, he has to admit that he is taking part in a “tale told by an idiot.”

It is the role of religious symbols to give a meaning to the life of man. The Pueblo Indians believe that they are the sons of Father Sun, and this belief endows their life with a perspective (and a goal) that goes far beyond their limited existence. It gives them ample space for the unfolding of personality and permits them a full life as complete persons. Their plight is infinitely more satisfactory than that of a man in our own civilization who knows that he is (and will remain) nothing more than an underdog with no inner meaning to his life.”
— C.G. Jung (Man and His Symbols)

Paul Harding
“But it’s a curse, a condemnation, like an act of provocation, to have been aroused from not being, to have been conjured up from a clot of dirt and hay and lit on fire and sent stumbling among the rocks and bones of this ruthless earth to weep and worry and wreak havoc and ponder little more than the impending return to oblivion, to invent hopes that are as elaborate as they are fraudulent and poorly constructed, and that burn off the moment they are dedicated, if not before, and are at best only true as we invent them for ourselves or tell them to others, around a fire, in a hovel, while we all freeze or starve or plot or contemplate treachery or betrayal or murder or despair of love, or make daughters and elaborately rejoice in them so that when they are cut down even more despair can be wrung from our hearts, which prove only to have been made for the purpose of being broken. And worse still, because broken hearts continue beating.”
— Paul Harding (Enon)
Nick Land
“Enigma, positive confusion (delirium), problematic, pain, whatever we want to call it; the torment of the philosophers in any case, is the stimulus to ecstatic creation, to an interminable “resolution” into the enhanced provocations of art. What the philosophers have never understood is this: it is the unintelligibility of the world alone that gives it worth. “Inertia needs unity (monism); plurality of interpretations a sign of strength. Not to desire to deprive the world of its disturbing and enigmatic character”. Not, then, to oppose pain to the absence of pain as metaphysical pessimism does, but, rather, to differentiate the ecstatic overcoming of pain from weariness and inertia, to exult in new and more terrible agonies, fears, burning perplexities as the resource of becoming, overcoming, triumph, the great libidinal oscillations that break up stabilized systems and intoxicate on intensity; that is Dionysian pessimism -“refusal to be deprived of the stimulus of the enigmatic”; “the effect of the work of art is to excite the state that creates art -intoxication”.”
— Nick Land (Fanged Noumena: Collected Writings, 1987-2007)
William Faulkner
“She turned now, facing him, as if she hand only been waiting until she became warm, the rich coat open upon the fragile glitter of her dress; there was a quality actually beautiful about her now-not of the face whose impeccable replica looks out from the covers of a thousand magazines each month, nor of the figure, the shape of deliberately epicene provocation into which the miles of celluloid film have constricted the female body of an entire race; but a quality completely female, in the old eternal fashion, primitive, assured and ruthless as she approched him … . “She said at once, now. So we can go. You see? Do you understand? We can leave now. Give her the money, let her have it all. We won’t care. …”
— William Faulkner (Collected Stories)
Nancy Jo Sales
“It’s people running around looking for anything to generate volume: Oh, teenage girls are taking their clothes off? And that’s getting a lot of hits? Then let’s turn a blind eye to the consequences. Oh, your daughter’s on Tinder? Well, she’s just meeting friends. It’s all about high-volume usage. I don’t think it’s necessarily a cynical, let’s destroy women thing – it’s how can I get my next quarter’s bonus?
And I think to the extent that the digital social media society normalizes impulses- think it, post it,” Roberts says, “we’ve also created a context for more and more provocative propositions, whatever they are: Look at my boobs. Do you want to hook up? It’s moved the bar for what’s normal and normalized extreme behavior; everything outrageous becomes normalized so rapidly. You realize how insane things are today when you think about the relative rate of change. When I was in high school, if I had gone around saying, Here’s a picture of me, like me, I would have gotten punched. If a girl went around passing out naked pictures of herself, people would have thought she needed therapy. Now that’s just Selfie Sunday.”

(— Paul Roberts quoted from the book)”

The Ancient One

I was Rama, I was Krishna, I was this One, I was that One, and now I am Meher Baba. In this form of flesh and blood I am that some Ancient One who alone is eternally worshipped and ignored, ever remembered and forgotten.

I am that Ancient One whose past is worshipped and remembered, whose present is ignored and forgotten and whose future (Advent) is anticipated with great fervour and longing.

Indian salesman – a WhatsApp friendly forward received

An Indian left his job and joined salesman’s job in a big department stores in Canada.

Boss :- Do you have any experience?

Indian : Yes a little too much…

On the first day, that Indian worked with full mind.

At 6 pm the Boss :- How many sales did you sell on the first day today?

Indian : Sir I sold 1

Boss : Only 1 sale ??? Usually every salesman working here does 20 to 30 sales daily. Well, tell me how much money did you sell ???

Indian : $93300 dollars.

Boss : What ??? But how did you do it?

Indian : 1 person came and I sold him a small fishing hook.
Then a mazola and then finally sold a big hook. Then I sold him 1 big fishing rods and some fishing gear.

Then I asked him where do you go to catch fish and he said in the coastal area….

Then I said it would need a boat. So I took him down to the boat department and sold him a 20 ft double engine scooner boat.

When he said this boat won’t come in his Volkas Wagon, I took him to the auto mobile section and sold him the new Deluxe 4 x 4 blazer to carry the boat.
And when I asked him where would be going fishing ??? He didn’t plan anything. So I took him to the camping section and sold him a six sleeper camper tent.

And then he said when he took all that he would take $ 200 groceries and 2 cases of beer.

Now the boss took 2 steps back and asked in a very rude way :- You sold all this to the man who came to buy only 1 fish hook???

Indian : “NO, SIR…” He only came to take 1 tablet for the headache…. I explained to him that fishing is the best way to get rid of headaches.

Boss : Where did you work before ??? In India???

Indian : Yes, I was a doctor in a private hospital : On a minor complaint of panic, we get the patients tested for pathology, ECO, ECG, TMT, CT scan, X-ray, MRI etc.

Boss : You sit on my chair. I am going to join a private hospital for training in India.

DhAnAnjAyA “jAy”PArkhe Quote 001

I haven’t coined any quotes of my own even in my 67 years of life.  I never felt a need.  On the contrary, I felt I should read more quotes, more wisdom and relate them to my  situation at that moment and L E  A R N.  Learning never ends.

I read a Quote

“Learn how to learn from those you disagree with, or even offend you. See if you can find the truth in what they believe.” by Kevin Kelly.


I like to be direct. I like to read, speak, write DEFINITIVE – no perhaps, may be for me and hence I liked Nik.

Nik of “Nik’s Summaries” fame whose newsletter I subscribe sent me this 5 day course, and I  am quite impressed . ”

I started a new short course on. Good english writing. “Hi!

My name is Nik. For the past six years, I have been a professional writer.

I’ve published over 1,000 pieces to date. My work reaches over 500,000 people each month. And I make a full-time income from my writing.

To me, that’s what “professional” means. You publish frequently, are read widely, and benefit financially. But right now, I only have one goal:

I want to improve your writing.

After this email, I want your writing to be slightly better than it was two minutes ago. That’s all I’m asking for.

Here are 4 tips that will make all of your future writing better – forever. No BS. Just pure, specific writing advice. These tips took me four years to collect but will take you only 2 minutes to learn.

Let’s go.

1. Refuse to use the word “thing”
Each thing we can describe in more detail. When we don’t, we’re just being lazy. It’s like hiding your screwed up cake under a pile of frosting to avoid baking a new one. Don’t.

Let a device be a device, a trait be a trait, a feeling be a feeling.

“This is the greatest thing my parents taught me.”

“This is the greatest lesson my parents taught me.”

2. Ditch the parentheses
Like “thing,” parentheses only weaken what you want to say. If you want to say it, say it. If not, don’t.

Whether it’s the brackets that are unnecessary or what’s in them is for you to decide. But one of the two is. At least 99% of the time.

Whichever one you choose to abandon, probability will always be on your side.

“You must pass a (ridiculously) hard course.”

“You must pass a hard course.”

3. Use fewer prepositions
Many of us need to free up time these days. But time doesn’t go anywhere on its own. Not up. Not down. It has no location.

Don’t free up time. Make time. Don’t move out. Just move. And if you can’t make time, don’t miss out on dinner. Just miss it.

Sometimes, we even add two unnecessary prepositions to one verb.

“He wants to meet up with Sarah in the morning.”

“He wants to meet Sarah in the morning.”

4. Eliminate redundant references
The reader arrived from your last sentence. She’ll remember it. Don’t begin the next one with a preposition or injection.

“So” doesn’t say so much, “as before” breaks my flow, “or” repeats the obvious alternative. “Well” means you’re not done thinking, well, take more time to write. We want to know what you think, not that you think.

Never reference the end of your previous sentence at the beginning of the next one.

“Writing improves your thinking. With this in mind, I suggest you write daily.”

“Writing improves your thinking. Write daily.”

We’ve known what makes good writing for almost 2,000 years. Often, it takes just a few seconds to improve a sentence. If you want to write a book, that’s still a lot of seconds.

Maya Angelou once said:

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

Whatever story you’d like to tell the world, with these tips you’ll hit the ground running. Just like we did with this free course.

Alright, that’s it for the warm-up. Tomorrow, we’ll start with your first lesson. If you want to take a sneak peek at the curriculum, you can do that here.

Talk to you then!”


I subscribe to many newsletters. One of my favorites is Seth Godin, This is what I got yesterday and liked.

“interesting article by Prof. Seth Godin ”
Your defining moment
It’s easy to wait for it. The movies have taught us that when the music swells and the chips are down, that’s when leaders arrive and when heroes are made.

It turns out, that’s not how it works.

Our work is what happens in all the moments. Leadership doesn’t simply appear when the script announces it does: it is the hard work of showing up when we’re not expected to, of seeing what’s possible when few are willing to believe.

Your defining moment is whenever you decide it is, and you get a new chance to lead every day.

Two months ago, we ran our first session of Rising Talent, a special session of the altMBA by and for emerging leaders at Fortune 500 companies.

Our month-long sprint connected senior leaders from SAP, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Brands, Citi, General Mills, Lululemon, NBA, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Adobe, Audible, Barclays, Chipotle, Delta, Trane Technologies, Frost Bank, Kellogg Company, Kraft Heinz, MetLife, Qualcomm, Shopify, Slack and Warby Parker. Even though the world was already turning upside down, this extraordinary cohort showed up and did the work, even as they were contributing at a high level at their day jobs.

The results reinforced what we’ve been saying at the altMBA for the last five years. Possibility is where you find it. We each have more to offer than the world expects. And growth is something we’re capable of, as soon as we’re committed to seeing what we can contribute.

The secret of our workshops is the level of commitment that our students bring. Even in times of turmoil. Enrollment opens the door to action instead of compliance.

Our current worldwide tragedy is a slog, but it will have another side. And the organizations that thrive will be the ones that don’t rely on top-down management to go forward. It’s peer-to-peer leadership and innovation that produces resilience, and leadership that turns any moment into a moment where we can make things better.


My Old Friend Jitendra Jog. An Avid Reader; is recovering after being donated a Kidney and in Self Quarantine in Mumbai the worst affected city in India with COVID.  He sent me this wonderful message – in the hope that the Lockdown 4.0 will end as announced on 31st May 2020.

“As we start to open up…You do You, I’ll do me. That’s what The World is all about. None of us have the same circumstances (medically high risk child/family member or a business about to go under, etc.). Let’s all stay in our own lanes and keep the judgment down as we begin to reopen. No one should feel pressured either way.
Just a thought…As the Centre & State governments are trying to figure out how to ease back into normal, please remember:
🛑 Some people don’t agree with the state opening…that’s okay. Be Kind.
🏡 Some people are still planning to stay home…that’s okay. Be Kind.
🦠 Some are still scared of getting the virus and a second wave happening…that’s okay. Be Kind.
💰 Some are sighing with relief to go back to work knowing they may not lose their business or their homes…that’s okay. Be Kind.
👩🏾‍⚕️Some are thankful they can finally have a surgery they have put off…that’s okay. Be Kind.
📝 Some will be able to attend interviews after weeks without a job…that’s okay. Be Kind.
😷 Some will wear masks for weeks…that’s okay. Be Kind.
💅🏻 Some people will rush out to get their hair or nails done…that’s okay. Be Kind.
❤️ The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay. Be Kind.
We each have a different story. If you need to stay home, stay home…But Be Kind .
If you need to go out, just respect others when in public and Be Kind!
Don’t judge fellow humans because you’re not in their story. We all are in different mental states than we were months ago. So remember, Be Kind.”


Going back to what Kevin Kelly said “Learn how to learn from those you disagree with, or even offend you. See if you can find the truth in what they believe.”

I thought, I could say as my own Quote:

“Learn from every situation, every possible means, Keep Learning,. Learn to share, fearlessly, directly, definitively to one you find is NEEDY.  When I find a different point of view from my own, I must learn to be kind. ”

Quote 1 – DhAnAnjAy “jAy”Parkhe. May 28, 2020


I am trying to limit my daily shares of links and articles, newsletters to just ONE like this.

If the regular readers and my friend commentators can share what they think about this, I shall be grateful.

Is it really #ChineseVirus as claimed? I doubt.

I am no fan of China. I see them as more capitalist than any. More imperialist and expansionist than any country in the world.  I call them the counterfeiters of the world.

The report link above makes me very suspicious of UNCLE SAM and Trump propaganda when ass many ass 600 US Billioaires #GETRICHQUICK VERY RICH indeed  while the world is languishing behind locked doors, isolations, confinement zones, red, amber, green zones, Quarantine centres and Ventilators.  The Biggest Capitalists seem to be encashing on the misery and mayhem caused by Corona. HOW IS IT?  Is it a USA smoke screen in which the US BUSINESSES joined hands with China at the Trade Deal and fooled the world.


My new subject of Study – via: NeuroHacker Collective

Let’s define neurohacking, together.
What is Neurohacking?

In the truest sense, neurohacking encompasses an integrative framework for optimizing mind, brain, and body so we can consistently experience beauty, happiness and greater well-being, from which we are able to offer our greatest contribution in life.

There are four foundational categories of neurohacking: mind care, body care, relationships and environment. Exerting energy, in equal balance, within the four quadrants is vital for well-being optimization.

Let’s start by defining each of the core essentials.

Mind Care
This quadrant involves upgrading your mental wellness through practices and interventions that consciously discipline the quality of your thinking itself. This includes things such as: meditation, gratitude practices, writing, playing a musical instrument, or for a less common example, neurolinguistic programming.
Body Care
Body care involves physical practices which primarily affect conscious experience via physiological pathways. Included are proper sleep, good nutrition and movement practices. There are also more cutting-edge body hacks such as nootropic supplements, transcranial stimulation devices, and biofeedback.
Humans are social primates. Our experiences and behaviors are affected by the company we keep more than by any other factor. The aphorism that we are “the average of the five people we spend the most time with” is borne out of fundamental truths. If you are not consciously tending to the quality of your relationships, you are not yet seriously neurohacking.
This quadrant encompasses all aspects of our daily experience beyond the care of body, mind, and relationships. Included are air quality, sleeping conditions, lighting in our homes, as well as appealing landscapes and wilderness. Click below to hear Neurohacker Collective partner, Jason Silva, speak to these very issues in addressing the subject of ontological design.

FROM THE ARCHIVE | The Wisdom of Trees: Walt Whitman on What Our Silent Friends Teach Us About Being Rather Than Seeming


“When we have learned how to listen to trees,” Hermann Hesse wrote in his lyrical love letter to our arboreal companions, “then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy.” Two generations earlier, a different titan of poetic sentiment extolled trees not only as a source of joy but as a source of unheralded moral wisdom and an improbable yet formidable model of what is noblest in the human character.

At fifty-four, a decade after his volunteer service as a nurse in the Civil War awakened him to the connection between the body and the spiritWalt Whitman (May 31, 1819–March 26, 1892) suffered a severe stroke that left him paralyzed. It took him two years to recover — convalescence aided greatly, he believed, by his immersion in nature and its healing power. “How it all nourishes, lulls me,” he exulted, “in the way most needed; the open air, the rye-fields, the apple orchards.” The transcendent record of Whitman’s communion with the natural world survives in Specimen Days (public library) — a sublime collection of prose fragments and diary entries, restoring the word “specimen” to its Latin origin in specere: “to look at.” What emerges is a jubilant celebration of the art of seeing, so native to us yet so easily unlearned, eulogized with the singular electricity that vibrates in Whitman alone.


Walt Whitman (Library of Congress)

In the years following his stroke, Whitman ventured frequently into the woods — “the best places for composition.” One late-summer day in 1876, he finds himself before one of his favorite arboreal wonders — “a fine yellow poplar,” rising ninety feet into the sky. Standing at its mighty four-foot trunk, he contemplates the unassailable authenticity of trees as a counterpoint to what Hannah Arendt would lament a century later as the human propensity for appearing rather than being. In a meditation from the late summer of 1876, Whitman writes:

2e292385-dc1c-4cfe-b95e-845f6f98c2ec.pngHow strong, vital, enduring! how dumbly eloquent! What suggestions of imperturbability and being, as against the human trait of mere seeming. Then the qualities, almost emotional, palpably artistic, heroic, of a tree; so innocent and harmless, yet so savage. It is, yet says nothing.


Illustration by Arthur Rackham for a rare 1917 edition of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales.

Nearly a century and a half before researchers uncovered the astonishing science of what trees feel and how they communicate, Whitman adds:

2e292385-dc1c-4cfe-b95e-845f6f98c2ec.pngScience (or rather half-way science) scoffs at reminiscence of dryad and hamadryad, and of trees speaking. But, if they don’t, they do as well as most speaking, writing, poetry, sermons — or rather they do a great deal better. I should say indeed that those old dryad-reminiscences are quite as true as any, and profounder than most reminiscences we get.


Art by Jacques Goldstyn from Bertolt, an uncommonly tender illustrated story about of the friendship of a tree.

Two centuries after an English gardener exulted that trees “speak to the mind, and tell us many things, and teach us many good lessons,” Whitman considers their quiet wisdom as a model for human character:

2e292385-dc1c-4cfe-b95e-845f6f98c2ec.pngGo and sit in a grove or woods, with one or more of those voiceless companions, and read the foregoing, and think.

One lesson from affiliating a tree — perhaps the greatest moral lesson anyhow from earth, rocks, animals, is that same lesson of inherency, of what is, without the least regard to what the looker on (the critic) supposes or says, or whether he likes or dislikes. What worse — what more general malady pervades each and all of us, our literature, education, attitude toward each other, (even toward ourselves,) than a morbid trouble about seems, (generally temporarily seems too,) and no trouble at all, or hardly any, about the sane, slow-growing, perennial, real parts of character, books, friendship, marriage — humanity’s invisible foundations and hold-together? (As the all-basis, the nerve, the great-sympathetic, the plenum within humanity, giving stamp to everything, is necessarily invisible.)


Art by Cécile Gambini from Strange Trees by Bernadette Pourquié, an illustrated atlas of the world’s arboreal wonders.

Specimen Days is a beautiful, healing read in its totality. Complement this particular fragment with a tender illustrated ode to our bond with trees, the story of how Marianne Moore saved a rare tree’s life with a poem, and a lyrical short film about our silent companions, then revisit Whitman on democracyidentity and the paradox of the self, and his timeless advice on living a vibrant and rewarding life.

Thanks to COVID-19, many of us are getting our first taste of telemedicine’s ease and convenience. Why take hours off work to go to the doctor’s office when you could have a video call and save the trip?
In the next 5 years, telemedicine could finally become an essential part of how we think about healthcare. But this goes beyond just having a doctor’s appointment via your laptop or phone. “[Telehealth] is going to be for everything, so that’s the corner that we’re turning right now,” says Dr. Roy Schoenberg, the founder of American Well.
That means that we’ll likely start to see the ubiquity of connected medical tools, so that you can send real-time data about your vitals directly to your doc. Right now, startups are building remote healthcare kits, where you might go to a convenient clinic at your school or workplace to take some diagnostic tests. Apps that can use sophisticated machine learning and computer vision to provide medical grade data about your health are on the way. AI will be able to automatically comb through this abundance of data and find abnormalities. It’s a bright future—as long as people have strong enough internet access to take advantage of it. Read more.

FS | BRAIN FOOD Newsletter I like


Hey Dhananjay,

Here is your weekly FS Brain Food Newsletter — a timeless signal in a world full of noise.


“We’ll be in a better position if we can face possible threats with a calm mind, alert to our internal signals but not anticipating every possible bad thing that could happen. While being told to stop panicking never helped anyone, we benefit by understanding that being overwhelmed by fear will hurt us more. Our imaginary fears harm us more than reality ever does.”

— Rethinking Fear

  • People are loving the excerpts from The Great Mental Models volumes One and Two that we’re posting on Instagram. (Click here to be notified when hardcovers are back in stock on Amazon.)


Our pop-up school aimed at kids in grades 3-6 continues to host amazing guest lectures for kids. Adults love it too. We post all the lectures on the school’s YouTube channel. This week Scott Young taught us how to learn, Biz Stanford introduced us to UX, and Brad Stulberg offered some thoughts on writing. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful speakers and I’m happy we can share them with the world.


Brian Koppelman, writer and director of the hit TV series Billions, talks about his career ups and downs, dealing with fear, and learning to live a meaningful life.

“All of us … are afraid of exposing that part of ourselves that we hold most dear for fear that it will be rejected. But the artist has a duty to risk that. And it’s a duty to risk it so that you’re able to be better.”

“In the theater, what it means to give a powerful performance is to accept and own the truth of what it means to be a human being: to be strong and weak, accomplished and fallible, powerful and powerless, all at once. This, actually, is the challenge that professional actors face every time they get in character. To play any part authentically, an actor must accept the character without judgment. And this is true for the rest of us as well. By accepting that each of us is all of these things, by learning to value all of these truths and show all of these sides of ourselves when appropriate, and by handling our mistakes with grace and equanimity, we become more resilient, less ruled by shame and self-loathing, and, ultimately, more powerful. Ironically, this is where authenticity comes from: not trying to be more yourself, but learning to accept more of yourself.”

— Deborah Gruenfeld in Acting With Power



“[M]y worry is that … you won’t put enough really excellent stuff into your brain. I’m talking about what you might call the “theory of maximum taste.” This theory is based on the idea that exposure to genius has the power to expand your consciousness. If you spend a lot of time with genius, your mind will end up bigger and broader than if you spend your time only with run-of-the-mill stuff. The theory of maximum taste says that each person’s mind is defined by its upper limit—the best that it habitually consumes and is capable of consuming. … In college, you get assigned hard things. You’re taught to look at paintings and think about science in challenging ways. After college, most of us resolve to keep doing this kind of thing, but we’re busy and our brains are tired at the end of the day. Months and years go by. We get caught up in stuff, settle for consuming Twitter and, frankly, journalism. Our maximum taste shrinks. Have you ever noticed that 70 percent of the people you know are more boring at 30 than they were at 20?.”

— A Commencement Address Too Honest to Deliver in Person


“But what I’ve seen to set apart great teams from good is a brutal focus on prioritization. This means generating an absurd amount of ideas and throwing 99% of them out of the window, to focus on the 1% that have the highest impact.”

— Erik Bernhardsson (Complement with Steve Jobs)


“One great portfolio manager I know told the story of being driven somewhere by an analyst on a rainy night when a truck swerved and almost ran them off the road. “Why is stuff like this always happening to me?” the analyst instinctively responded. But to the portfolio manager, that response reflected a terrible mindset, whether on the road or in the market: a sense that the world is acting on you as opposed to your acting on the world. It is a mindset that is hard to change. But from what I’ve seen, great investors don’t have it. Instead, they’ve come to understand which factors in the market they can control and which factors they cannot.”

— Graham Duncan (Complement with It’s All Your Fault)


Asking myself “is this helping me get what I want” is becoming one of my favorite questions.

It works on kids too. Mine are 11 and soon to be 10. Whenever they start fighting, I ask them, “Is this helping you get what you want?” and it gives them the power to remember what they are really trying to accomplish. “You can argue with your brother about whether it’s a chair or a stool, or you can get what you want.”

Don’t lose sight on what you want to achieve. Every action is a step toward or away from you what you want.

But what if it works? via Seth Godin Newsleetter.

But what if it works?

The difference between science and conspiracy theory/superstition is simple:

Good science leads to useful insights. And good science is the cure for bad science.

On the other hand, there are no good conspiracy theories, because they are attractive precisely because they’re unproven, imprecise and non-falsifiable. They’re not actually theories at all. They use confusion to create a sense of comfort and control when it’s in short supply.

It’s almost impossible to tell a good conspiracy theory from a bad one, hence they don’t work as theories.

And good conspiracy theories don’t lead to useful insights, nor do they help drive out the bad conspiracy theories. You can’t productively question someone’s superstition, because it never really thought it was an actual explanation of how the world is.

A good scientist has a theory and she’s eager to be proven wrong, so she can make better science. And delighted to be proven right, because she now has a useful insight.

Reality doesn’t care whether or not we believe in it, but it’s more useful for all of us when we understand it.

What Does WhatsApp University ? think about Novel Corona Virus.

This is a forwarded message – I do not know who wrote it.  I agree with some observations and disagree with some.  I leave it to readers’s judgement to take it or leave it.

Quote “Is the Corona Virus a deliberate Bio-warfare attack by China virtually amounting to WWIII? The speculation doing the rounds on the net Looks So Logical…Read on its a bit Lengthy but SPINE- CHILLING!

.After all Chinese Stock Market didn’t crash….American and European Markets did…. Destroy other markets and be ready to capture them in every How to dominate the world quickly?

STAGE 1. Create a virus and the antidote. 2. Spread the virus. 3. A demonstration of efficiency, building hospitals in a few days. After all, you were already prepared, with the projects, ordering the equipment, hiring the labor, the water and sewage network, the prefabricated building materials and stocked in an impressive volume. 4. Cause chaos in the world, starting with Europe. 5. Quickly plaster the economy of dozens of countries. 6. Stop production lines in factories in other countries. 7. Cause stock markets to fall and buy companies at a bargain price.

  1. Quickly control the epidemic in your country. After all, you were already prepared. 9. Lower the price of commodities, including the price of oil you buy on a large scale. 10. Get back to producing quickly while the world is at a standstill. Buy what you negotiated cheaply in the crisis and sell more expensive what is lacking in countries that have paralyzed their industries. . PS: Before laughing, read the book by Chinese colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, from 1999, “Unrestricted Warfare: China’s master plan to destroy America”,

. It’s all the Worth pondering.. Just Think about this… How come Russia & North Korea are totally free of Covid- 19? Because they are staunch ally of China. Not a single case reported from this 2 countries. On the other hand South Korea / United Kingdom / Italy / Spain and Asia are severely hit.

How come Wuhan is suddenly free from the deadly virus? China will say that their drastic initial measures they took was very stern and Wuhan was locked down to contain the spread to other areas. I am sure they are using the Anti dote of the virus. Why Beijing was not hit? Why only Wuhan? Well ..Wuhan is open for business now. America and all the above mentioned countries are devastated financially. Soon American economy will collapse as planned by China.

China knows it CANNOT defeat America militarily as USA is at present THE MOST POWERFUL country in the world. So use the virus…to cripple the economy and paralyse the nation and its Defense capabilities. Lately President Trump was always telling of how GREAT American economy was improving in all fronts. The only way to destroy his vision of making AMERICA GREAT AGAIN is to create an economic havoc. s. Wuhan,s epidemic was a showcase.

At the peak of the virus epidemic. .. China’s President Xi Jinping…just wore a simple RM1 facemask to visit those effected areas. As President he should be covered from head to toe…..but it was not the case. He was already injected to resist any harm from the virus….that means a cure was already in place before the virus was released. Some may ask….Bill Gates already predicted the outbreak in 2015…so the chinese agenda cannot be true. The answer is. ..YES…Bill Gates did predict. .but that prediction is based on a genuine virus outbreak. Now China is also telling that the virus was predicted well in advance. ….so that its agenda would play along well to match that prediction
China,s vision is to control the World economy by buying up stocks now from countries facing the brink of severe ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. Later China will announce that their Medical Researchers have found a cure to destroy the virus. Now China have other countries stocks in their arsenal and these countries will soon be slave to their master…CHINA. Just Think about it … The Doctor Who declared this virus was also Silenced by the Chinese Authorities…” End Quote.

Dark Poem by Jay Parkhe

Doing a bit of Dark Poetry
I awoke and flung the universe off discourse
Deep into that darkness tapping
I heard a planet, splendid canvassing
By then I saw the quantum mechanics
Of the Leaking? Weeping Uranus
So infamous for his Ups n down/ Uncertainties
On thisday my soul grew plutonian
Once upon a midnight universal
Much I marvelled the cosmic nebula
Read about the upcoming Quasar Tsunami
And thought of the upcoming Hanta Virus
When I thought of the universe
And Said – Wow!
I shall Go out of this world
Not with a whimper
But with BIG Bangs !
