The thing about Streaks (Part 2)

The thing about Streaks (Part 2)

(What do streaks mean and about my current streaks – mentioned in the blog post ‘The thing about Streaks Part 1)

The thing about streaks – you carry on for days and now it’s instilled as a habit too. However, a situation arises when a gap occurs or you feel like taking the weekend off.

In such a scenario, you cannot pause it and resume it.

You have to restart it.

Start again from Day 0 and build it up from there.

That’s the only way to maintain discipline and instill that habit to your lifestyle from the long-term perspective of your life.

A bend in the road.

A bend in the road.

“A bend in the road is not the end of the road… Unless you fail to make the turn.” – Helen Keller

Ultimately, it’s all about the choices you make.

These choices depend on the perspective you have.

The perspective comes from the kind of mindset you have.

If it is a positive one, then a bend in the road is not the end of the road.

However, if it is a negative one, then you will fail to make the turn.

Education is limited, learning is not.

In order to grow as a person, to evolve, to upgrade to a higher version of yourself, you need to keep learning!

Learn something
– new
– different
– and, everyday!

It could be in any form – written, audio, video – either consumption on the internet, or having conversations with like-minded people, whatever suits you best.

That’s the key – Never Stop Learning!

The thing about Streaks

The thing about Streaks

• Streaks •

The thing about streaks is that it allows you to commit to something, that you have been longing to do.

Every day is a push initially to complete it.

The streak continues and eventually you do it long enough to make it into a habit.

The definition of ‘Opinion’

The definition of ‘Opinion’

Everyone holds people’s opinions on a pedestal and base their lives around it!

However, have you ever read the definition of an ‘opinion’?

A view or a judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

The opinion is not based on facts neither does the person have the 100% knowledge of your life?

Then why are these opinions so important?

Think about it.

People are scared to post.

People are scared to post.

Scenario A// What if I post this picture and I don’t get enough likes on it?

Scenario B// What if people judge me if I post that? *deleting post*

Scenario C// *Writing caption*

This doesn’t bode well in comparison to other people’s captions.

*Writing caption the 30th time*


People are afraid to open up on social media.

They pre-judge themselves based on what other people *might* think of them.

Authenticity is going down and more than that, people are backing out of posting anything on social media!

Even though it could have been super meaningful.

It might have changed someone’s life trajectory or more importantly, their own life’s.


What should happen?

People should open up and simply say what’s on their mind.

And target the audience that the content is for.

Instead of targeting everyone and worrying about their opinions.

Listening to the Right People!

Listening to the Right People!

With the internet in its current form, everyone has a voice, some use it positively, to impact people, some people use it to sell something, some people use it negatively, to bring others down!

Earlier, in the initial social media days, or even before that, this wasn’t the case!

When a person saw a billboard or a visual/audio show or an ad, the platform was trusted enough to trust the information too.

With social media and the uprise of people on it, there are too many voices out there!

When you seek information on the internet, you need to be self-aware of who you are, what do you seek and listen to the right person.

On a number of occasions, people are in a hurry and conclude their hunt for the information, with the first person they find and base their opinions according to a single person’s point of view too.

If you’re listening to someone, be sure of the experience they have and what their intentions are.

If you’re buying something, ensure of the brand and their approach. (especially if it’s an online service)

The key is to listen to the right people.
