Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you want something, it is because that desire originated in the soul of the Universe. It is your mission on earth.

1. Philosophy: The Open Society and Its Enemies of Karl R. Popper. Although those are two Volumes (I and II) the topic is the same. In the first Volume Karl Popper makes a brilliant analysis of ancient philosophers (Plato and Aristotle in particular) and how they influenced our culture till those day. In the second Volume Popper focuses on Hegel and Marx and how they influenced modern times ideologies. Although Popper is the only modern philosopher with a scientific approach the open society is a harsh critique to how those philosophers’ interpretation of the world lead eventually to the birth antidemocratic ideologies. Believe me when I say that this is one of the most mind-blowing texts ever written. In addition Popper’s style is very simple and captivating.

how did it change my life? Popper is one of the first philosophers which look at other philosophers with a skeptical eye. Once you read Popper you realize that also Plato and Aristotle were men and as such they made mistakes. Therefore, you don't take anything for given anymore.

2. Neuroscience:  Soft-Wired How the New Science of Neuroplasticity can change your life – Dr. Michael Merzenich PHD. This book is going to open your mind on how our brain actually works. You will see many myths that you believed true throughout your life bust in the pages of “Soft-Wired”. The book is brilliant since it explains the new scientific findings but also how to improve your life through neuroplasticity. It is really a guide on how to live.

how did it change my life? Adter reading Soft-wired my belief system shifted. I no longer believed to be a fixed individual. In other words I realized that DNA plays a dismal role compared to life and experience. And if you are willing to put the effort you can change yourself at any time in life. Empowering!

3. Non-Fiction: The Black Swan – Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Taleb is going to open your eyes on many topics and human biases. If you read this book carefully, eventually you will understand things about yourself and society in general that you did not notice before.

how did it change my life? It made me realize how humans are biased. Join the modern skeptics!

4. Fiction – The Divine Comedy – Dante Alighieri

Absolutely the best work ever written by any account. Dante Alighieri mixes fiction (he travels through hell, purgatory before reaching heaven) with history. Indeed in this fantastic journey he encounters many historical figures. His guide throughout this spiritual journey will be the Latin author Virgil that he defines as great master.

how did it change my life? Reading Dante is like going back in time and meeting many of the greatest ancient authors and mythological characters. It makes you discover a world that you did not have idea existed. Enlightening!

5. Autobiographies: Anwar El Sadat: In Search of Identity an Autobiography.

The amazing, inspiring and heroic personality, Sadat (former Egyptian president eventually assassinated) tells his story that seems more a tale than a real story. Sometimes reality exceeds fiction and this is one of those cases.

how did it change my life? Sadat story gave me strength. We realize that our everyday challenges are nothing compared to the ones Sadat had to face throughout his life.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR LIFE ?
Simple algebraic equation of LIFE: aX + bY + c = P

Where P is what do we want in Life?C is a constant on which we do not have any controlX and Y are the variables on which we have a controlA and B are again constants on which we do not have control.Generally the most difficult thing is to find the right question, right problem, right objective that is P. We have so many forces acting on us and hence, with those generally what we chase is P+K or some other shit. For some people P keeps on changing with time, because they are never sure if its the right thing which they want in life?

Hence, to measure your life or to bring peace in your life or to become happy in your life or to get the sense of maturity in life, where no external factor creates any trouble in your life, firstly you need to find what do you want?
Second is what you need is variables of things that basically will take you to thing/situation/goal you have in mind. List down all the things.
For example: My objective in life is bring a +ve change in human's life at global/mass level. (I have introspective in terms of why I need this and at what cost and etc)
My next question is that to achieve this what do I have to do? i.e. list down your variables.
Start chasing your variablesFor few those the value of A/B will be higher and hence they might need to put a lower X/Y, but for you may be the value of A/B is lower and hence you would need to put more hard work to make sure that AX+BY becomes equal to P, even if the value of C is zero.In this time sometimes the variable B becomes negative, i.e. your family angle, your society angle, your girl friend doesnt want you to reach P, because in thr perspective, they think either it is un-achievable or they will lose you as an individual once you reach P. What do you do when something like this happen ? Increase X, the only variable truly in your hand.--------------------------------------------Few lines from some where which I like:
Because it’s all in how you choose to measure success. I don’t measure my success by displays of monetary wealth. I prefer to measure it based on social and global impact. Is that totally self-serving and biased? Absolutely. And that’s the point: You get to choose how you measure success.

Most of us are never told this. It’s not something we pick up in school or church. In fact, most of our social systems are built with their own metrics of success built into them which we are then expected and sometimes forced to follow. Get good grades. Make tons of money. Go to church. Buy nice things. Raise a nice family. Watch football.
It’s vital that we remember that they’re not absolute. We shouldn’t limit ourselves to them. Money is nice, but one can choose to see it not as the absolute measure of wealth, but as a useful tool to help achieve true wealth. Religion gives billions of people’s lives moral direction, but that doesn’t require one to believe in religion to be a good, moral person. Relationships and family are important, but lacking them doesn’t make you any less valuable as a person.
Again, we get to choose. And the beauty and the frustration is that we’re all different, so most of the time our metrics will be different.
--------------------------------------------------Happiness Hypotheticals:
The Happiness Hypotheticals are powerful tools because they can show us what metrics of success actually matter for us. Many of us think relationships will make us happy, but emotional health should be the goal and relationships the side effect. Many think popularity will make them happy, but one should do something important and noble and let the fame be the side effect.

As humans, we’re all driven by happiness and meaning, but we often get caught up in unnecessary status concerns and superficial comparisons. When we create hypothetical either/or situations between those comparisons and happiness, it can quickly sort our priorities out for us. Tools such as these show us ways in which we can measure our own success.
I’m not famous, but I improve people’s lives. That makes me successful. You’re single and alone right now, but you’re happy and proud of yourself. That makes you successful.
We must take care in choosing the way in which we measure success because the metrics we choose will determine all of our actions and beliefs.
The metrics of success which we choose lead to long-term real life consequences, and they determine everything.

Path to Success & To Not Giving Up!
We often think that the
#Path to success in Life is short, easy and if we could just complete the next step we will win.  

NO!  

The path to success in Life is: 
1. Long 
2. Difficult 
3. And multiplicative of all actions you take during the long and difficult journey. 


Success in Life is not: 
1. If we score great marks in School, Engineering, MBA, and think our future is set. 
2. If we complete a particular task, project on time - and think this will always be there. 
3. If we do marketing, get users, get funding, and think we have a business - and we can now chill. 
4. If we coax a beautiful, pretty girl into marrying us - and think that the relationship is set for life. 
5. If we get a deal, and think wow - not we don't have to deliver it. 

Success is Commitment and living it to 100%, once you commit. 

Often start is considered as the success, but it is just the first step, and if we get relaxed, we will fail with each thing - be it School, College, Work, Business, Relationship. Yes, fail Flat on the face. 

Success is like a war -  Made up of 1000s of small battles, where in you have to execute each battle, each day, each relationship, each decision, each statement right and 100%. 

The multiplicative rule of the WAR says that if you lose one step, one decision, one action - you are ZERO. 

Yes, that's how harsh it is - and so is Life. It makes things Zero, even after a lot of hardwork, if there was a single even a single fuck up in between. It doest care. 

----------------- Giving Up: 
Often in the path to success in Life, we feel like giving up, we feel to rest, we feel to relax, and we think that who's watching it? Its my Life and I will enjoy ! 

No my friend. No !

But as and when you give up or rest - You have lost that moment, which will never come back. Yes, you've lost it !


------------------Capability: 
Moreover, I've seen and met people, who think that this can't be done, because it is tough, it takes time, or I am not capable. 
To all those people I will say, the world gives "Zero Fuck", Yes "Zero Fuck". 

------------------Brutalness: 
Life is Fucking Brutal, It fucks you when you are alone, it fucks you when you do not have any resource, it fucks you when you do not have money, It fucks you when your friends do not pick up. 

Yes, that's how brutal it is.  

------------------Decrease Negativity: 
The only way to deal with it and win it is "GIVE ZERO FUCK"!
Remove Negativity. Yes, remove whatever is holding you back. Focus on the purpose. 

You can only hit the "Eye" with the Arrow, if you Focus, and lessen the burden with of all FUCK!


------------ : Keep Walking, Keep Walking - Till you win the War!

#War #Life #ThugsLife #400MilesPerHour

A LOOK AT LIFE-4
BY- SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Life
At its various stations
Offers something
Which is just unique and different
Not to be found anywhere else

Life with all its splendours
To be lived and relished
For once you miss something
Will never come back again

From early childhood
To late old age
From naughty looks of a child
To the full bloom of youth
From the agony of mid fifty
To the apathy of late eighty
Life has its own moments

From cradle to the grave
Life is a feast
Never allow duty tension and anxiety
To take the juice out of it
Or else be sure
You will make a total mess of it

1. Philosophy: The Open Society and Its Enemies of Karl R. Popper. Although those are two Volumes (I and II) the topic is the same. In the first Volume Karl Popper makes a brilliant analysis of ancient philosophers (Plato and Aristotle in particular) and how they influenced our culture till those day. In the second Volume Popper focuses on Hegel and Marx and how they influenced modern times ideologies. Although Popper is the only modern philosopher with a scientific approach the open society is a harsh critique to how those philosophers’ interpretation of the world lead eventually to the birth antidemocratic ideologies. Believe me when I say that this is one of the most mind-blowing texts ever written. In addition Popper’s style is very simple and captivating.

how did it change my life? Popper is one of the first philosophers which look at other philosophers with a skeptical eye. Once you read Popper you realize that also Plato and Aristotle were men and as such they made mistakes. Therefore, you don't take anything for given anymore.

2. Neuroscience:  Soft-Wired How the New Science of Neuroplasticity can change your life – Dr. Michael Merzenich PHD. This book is going to open your mind on how our brain actually works. You will see many myths that you believed true throughout your life bust in the pages of “Soft-Wired”. The book is brilliant since it explains the new scientific findings but also how to improve your life through neuroplasticity. It is really a guide on how to live.

how did it change my life? Adter reading Soft-wired my belief system shifted. I no longer believed to be a fixed individual. In other words I realized that DNA plays a dismal role compared to life and experience. And if you are willing to put the effort you can change yourself at any time in life. Empowering!

3. Non-Fiction: The Black Swan – Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Taleb is going to open your eyes on many topics and human biases. If you read this book carefully, eventually you will understand things about yourself and society in general that you did not notice before.

how did it change my life? It made me realize how humans are biased. Join the modern skeptics!

4. Fiction – The Divine Comedy – Dante Alighieri

Absolutely the best work ever written by any account. Dante Alighieri mixes fiction (he travels through hell, purgatory before reaching heaven) with history. Indeed in this fantastic journey he encounters many historical figures. His guide throughout this spiritual journey will be the Latin author Virgil that he defines as great master.

how did it change my life? Reading Dante is like going back in time and meeting many of the greatest ancient authors and mythological characters. It makes you discover a world that you did not have idea existed. Enlightening!

5. Autobiographies: Anwar El Sadat: In Search of Identity an Autobiography.

The amazing, inspiring and heroic personality, Sadat (former Egyptian president eventually assassinated) tells his story that seems more a tale than a real story. Sometimes reality exceeds fiction and this is one of those cases.

how did it change my life? Sadat story gave me strength. We realize that our everyday challenges are nothing compared to the ones Sadat had to face throughout his life.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR LIFE ?
Simple algebraic equation of LIFE: aX + bY + c = P

Where P is what do we want in Life?C is a constant on which we do not have any controlX and Y are the variables on which we have a controlA and B are again constants on which we do not have control.Generally the most difficult thing is to find the right question, right problem, right objective that is P. We have so many forces acting on us and hence, with those generally what we chase is P+K or some other shit. For some people P keeps on changing with time, because they are never sure if its the right thing which they want in life?

Hence, to measure your life or to bring peace in your life or to become happy in your life or to get the sense of maturity in life, where no external factor creates any trouble in your life, firstly you need to find what do you want?
Second is what you need is variables of things that basically will take you to thing/situation/goal you have in mind. List down all the things.
For example: My objective in life is bring a +ve change in human's life at global/mass level. (I have introspective in terms of why I need this and at what cost and etc)
My next question is that to achieve this what do I have to do? i.e. list down your variables.
Start chasing your variablesFor few those the value of A/B will be higher and hence they might need to put a lower X/Y, but for you may be the value of A/B is lower and hence you would need to put more hard work to make sure that AX+BY becomes equal to P, even if the value of C is zero.In this time sometimes the variable B becomes negative, i.e. your family angle, your society angle, your girl friend doesnt want you to reach P, because in thr perspective, they think either it is un-achievable or they will lose you as an individual once you reach P. What do you do when something like this happen ? Increase X, the only variable truly in your hand.--------------------------------------------Few lines from some where which I like:
Because it’s all in how you choose to measure success. I don’t measure my success by displays of monetary wealth. I prefer to measure it based on social and global impact. Is that totally self-serving and biased? Absolutely. And that’s the point: You get to choose how you measure success.

Most of us are never told this. It’s not something we pick up in school or church. In fact, most of our social systems are built with their own metrics of success built into them which we are then expected and sometimes forced to follow. Get good grades. Make tons of money. Go to church. Buy nice things. Raise a nice family. Watch football.
It’s vital that we remember that they’re not absolute. We shouldn’t limit ourselves to them. Money is nice, but one can choose to see it not as the absolute measure of wealth, but as a useful tool to help achieve true wealth. Religion gives billions of people’s lives moral direction, but that doesn’t require one to believe in religion to be a good, moral person. Relationships and family are important, but lacking them doesn’t make you any less valuable as a person.
Again, we get to choose. And the beauty and the frustration is that we’re all different, so most of the time our metrics will be different.
--------------------------------------------------Happiness Hypotheticals:
The Happiness Hypotheticals are powerful tools because they can show us what metrics of success actually matter for us. Many of us think relationships will make us happy, but emotional health should be the goal and relationships the side effect. Many think popularity will make them happy, but one should do something important and noble and let the fame be the side effect.

As humans, we’re all driven by happiness and meaning, but we often get caught up in unnecessary status concerns and superficial comparisons. When we create hypothetical either/or situations between those comparisons and happiness, it can quickly sort our priorities out for us. Tools such as these show us ways in which we can measure our own success.
I’m not famous, but I improve people’s lives. That makes me successful. You’re single and alone right now, but you’re happy and proud of yourself. That makes you successful.
We must take care in choosing the way in which we measure success because the metrics we choose will determine all of our actions and beliefs.
The metrics of success which we choose lead to long-term real life consequences, and they determine everything.

Path to Success & To Not Giving Up!
We often think that the
#Path to success in Life is short, easy and if we could just complete the next step we will win.  

NO!  

The path to success in Life is: 
1. Long 
2. Difficult 
3. And multiplicative of all actions you take during the long and difficult journey. 


Success in Life is not: 
1. If we score great marks in School, Engineering, MBA, and think our future is set. 
2. If we complete a particular task, project on time - and think this will always be there. 
3. If we do marketing, get users, get funding, and think we have a business - and we can now chill. 
4. If we coax a beautiful, pretty girl into marrying us - and think that the relationship is set for life. 
5. If we get a deal, and think wow - not we don't have to deliver it. 

Success is Commitment and living it to 100%, once you commit. 

Often start is considered as the success, but it is just the first step, and if we get relaxed, we will fail with each thing - be it School, College, Work, Business, Relationship. Yes, fail Flat on the face. 

Success is like a war -  Made up of 1000s of small battles, where in you have to execute each battle, each day, each relationship, each decision, each statement right and 100%. 

The multiplicative rule of the WAR says that if you lose one step, one decision, one action - you are ZERO. 

Yes, that's how harsh it is - and so is Life. It makes things Zero, even after a lot of hardwork, if there was a single even a single fuck up in between. It doest care. 

----------------- Giving Up: 
Often in the path to success in Life, we feel like giving up, we feel to rest, we feel to relax, and we think that who's watching it? Its my Life and I will enjoy ! 

No my friend. No !

But as and when you give up or rest - You have lost that moment, which will never come back. Yes, you've lost it !


------------------Capability: 
Moreover, I've seen and met people, who think that this can't be done, because it is tough, it takes time, or I am not capable. 
To all those people I will say, the world gives "Zero Fuck", Yes "Zero Fuck". 

------------------Brutalness: 
Life is Fucking Brutal, It fucks you when you are alone, it fucks you when you do not have any resource, it fucks you when you do not have money, It fucks you when your friends do not pick up. 

Yes, that's how brutal it is.  

------------------Decrease Negativity: 
The only way to deal with it and win it is "GIVE ZERO FUCK"!
Remove Negativity. Yes, remove whatever is holding you back. Focus on the purpose. 

You can only hit the "Eye" with the Arrow, if you Focus, and lessen the burden with of all FUCK!


------------ : Keep Walking, Keep Walking - Till you win the War!

"Thanks and gratitude to Prof Cijo Joseph Chennelil, the eminent poet and literary critc for his fabulous critical appreciation of my poem 'A LOOK AT LIFE-4'. Thank you very much, sir, for your wonderful words of appreciation Smruti Ranjaniji, Your poem titled"A Look At Life -4"is a poem that looks at life from various strands, angles and dimensions. As we go through different phases of life, we come across different circumstances and situations which teach us about various aspects of life one way or other. Whatever, it is, life should be cherished to the hilt because when it is gone, it is the endgame, so whatever good things that we can do in this life, we have to do with atmost earnestness and consideration. From childhood to old age, life teaches us many things, in early childhood we are tinged with innocence, then in the adolescent period,we are prone to the nitty grittes of life culminating in antics of various hues and colours, in the middle age,we function as people of obligations and responsibilities and finally in the old age, we wait for the chariot of death to arrive with a sense of resignation. In fact from birth to death, life is a constant struggle and a pillar to post running but we need to enjoy life imbibing its essence and real spirit, otherwise, we shall regret about it at the end. If we are bogged down by the responsibilities and high pressured jobs in our lives, then the prime period of our lives pass by us without ourselves noticing it a bit.

A LOOK AT LIFE-4
BY- SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Life
At its various stations
Offers something
Which is just unique and different
Not to be found anywhere else

Life with all its splendours
To be lived and relished
For once you miss something
Will never come back again

From early childhood
To late old age
From naughty looks of a child
To the full bloom of youth
From the agony of mid fifty
To the apathy of late eighty
Life has its own moments

From cradle to the grave
Life is a feast
Never allow duty tension and anxiety
To take the juice out of it
Or else be sure
You will make a total mess of it
