Can You Learn How To Dream ?

Can You? The following article says that You can. And it literally says that you can dream whatever you want to dream. huh! Dream to me is what your sub-conscientious mind thinks when you are sleeping. Well, if you can teach how and what your sub-conscientious mind think, then, paradoxically, it is not your sub-conscientious mind any more. Isn't it?

I do not know how night dreams influence (except a few stories and movies), but I strongly believe in day dreaming. Day-dreams are your direct thoughts out of imagination, and hence they are the blueprints of your future if you have the courage to act on them.

What is a dream? According to Wikipedia, A dream is the experience of envisioned images, voices, or other sensations during sleep. However we are not talking about dreaming while we sleep, we are talking about dreaming while we are awake and conscious. We are talking about imagine and visualize what is our future scene looks like. Basically dreaming is the first step for whatever we want to achieve in our live.

Dream sounds like something intangible and untouchable. For example when we heard somebody saying that they had dream that they becomes a millionaire, then normally we will treat this as day dreaming. Many of us lost our courage to dream when we grown up. When we wanted to be somebody, people will tell us that it is impossible. As times goes by, We lose our ability to dream. We don’t know how to dream and even don’t know what to dream.

However we should be aware that we need to continue to dream. We need to choose to dream and dare to dream. Without dreams, life would be meaningless because we have no future. If we don’t know how to dream, then we got to learn how to dream. There are a lot of books and materials outside that teaches us how to dream. We just have to go out there, open our eyes, look for it, read it, and do it. For example Marc Allen’s book of ‘The Type Z Guide To Success with Ease’ illustrate some good techniques and examples that shows us how to dream.

Recently I relearned how to dream properly. I force myself to dream. At the beginning, it is difficult, because I don’t even know what to dream. But after sometimes, it becomes a natural things. I can dream of the same scene every morning and before sleep and whenever I am free. Basically you need practices to do this.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
