Summary – More & Less
I was actually writing another post when suddenly I realized something. Most of life’s problem can be settled by the keyword “more and less”. Hopefully this list will help elaborate the idea.
How to have a a healthier body?
- Less unhealthy food, more exercise
How to get things done?
- Less idling, more systematic work done
How to be more understanding?
- Less talk, more listening
How to be a happier you?
- Less negativity, more positivity
How to become rich?
- Less expenditure, more income
How to have a meaningful life?
- Less you, more others
How to achieve dream?
- Less dreaming, more action
How to excel in exam?
- Less wasting time, more study
How to be successful?
- Less mistakes, more results
How to live longer?
- Less dying, more living
You may be saying… Duh! But seriously when you think about it, it does make sense. It all boils down to these two term, more and less.
Allow me to explain. Let’s take example 2 – How to get things done. Don’t you think that the only thing that deteriorate our productivity is procrastination and lack of system? If we can minimize procrastination and build a more systematic way of doing things, basically nothing will stop us from getting things done.
Once we know this, we must go deeper, and ask how exactly can we reduce procrastination? What other system can we apply? Unfortunately the answers to that must be researched ourself.
So, what’s the importance of knowing this?
Guess what, even in its general form, we are actually halfway from solving our problems. We already know where to start. And knowing where to start is basically a solution to every problems on earth.
Try it with other problems / questions in your life. Maybe you can try to come up with the solution for these questions
1) How to make a person likes you?
2) How to be a good man?
———– Personal Note ———–
I’m currently in Kuala Lumpur, visitting my mother and taking the mrs to her now-weekly medical checkup. She is now 8 months in her pregnancy. We had checked via ultra sound to determine the gender of our baby, but apparently the little one is quite creative in hiding that vital part of his/hers. So we are still unsure of his/her gender.
Now we had given up checking and will just wait the news once he/she is born.
But, the mrs had bought quite a lot of pink colored baby clothes
