“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”—Albert Einstein (submitted by FreshWithDepth)
When you lose something extremely important to you, one goes through several stages of coping. Eventually, you realize that you were simply in a different mindset. It is still possible to find that lost item. You just have to shift your thoughts towards what is really important. One is more likely to make mistakes when one loses sight of what was important, what something meant and why you must stick to that specific mindset; because at some point in the past it held great importance in your life.
I found my favorite toy X-wing a few days ago. I keep it around because it reminds me that I should never stop imagining the possibilities. If I do have the right mindset, one day, it will become reality.
“Your ability to set goals is the master skill of success. Goals unlock your positive mind and release ideas and energy for goal attainment. Without goals, you simply drift and flow on the currents of life. With goals, you fly like an arrow, straight and true to your target.”—Brian Tracy (via jonmurphy)
One can only surmise what life is about. Eventually, you arrive at the border where you have a choice. Why worry about supposed obstacles or inner-thoughts of inability when, in reality, your only limitation is yourself. After that, life begins to happen.
“Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson (via kari-shma)
I just finished watching the TV show series Kings on Hulu. It aired 2009 on NBC.
This show demonstrated a key insight into Humanity: Change comes from within and character depends upon oneself determination to make the hard choices even if it means losing something you care about for something you love. Common sense made apparent.
Sometimes I wonder if the stress ball apple knows that I take all my frustrations of late night studying, fast food and personal inability to cope with my current mental limitations. I throw it around, squeeze it until I get tired, and toss it back into my bag. I wonder if it has existential moments.
Working out, studying, learning and eating. Actions I take everyday.
Things I want to pick up within the next 5 years:
Violincello and guitar
Either biking, basketball, something with a racket and some more jogging, volleyball and some boardgames for money like texas and mah jong 8)
I can probably think about more hobbies. I already have cooking, anime/drama/music fascinations and other stuff too I guess. This is all to achieve mastery (relatively speaking). I doubt I will have the time. But hey, that is why they are called hobbies! Of course, there are always the pile of books I can read.
Sometimes you think you’d stay an ADP. After all, it isn’t energetically favorable to become an ATP. So, why is it you think you would stay ADP if all the other ADP molecules became ATP molecules. Sure, it is easy to end up as ADP again. After all, the hydrolysis of ATP is favorable. But hey, you get to drive a reaction forward. This reaction moves life forward. That is always a good thing.
I have always thought about WAYS to achieve my desired educational level (MD/MBA). I don’t usually think about WHY. It seems that when I think about the latter, I have a more positive outlook on memorizing the different muscle group systems in the Human Body. Hoorah for Psychology techniques.
