Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most impressive and fascinating people I have read about. He came to the United States of America from Austria and then become the greatest bodybuilder of all time, revolutionizing the industry.

He then became interested in real estate and bought property. He also started an European construction company with his friend and became a millionaire way before his movie career.

He then stared in many movies and became the action film icon of Hollywood. …


Do you know what’s the richest/biggest company in Singapore today?

Today, I would like to share a parable ( a simple story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson ) that I first found out about in The 4-Hour Workweek which is written by Tim Ferris who is an entrepreneur and well known Author.

The Parable:

An American investment banker was taking a much-needed vacation in a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. The boat had several large, fresh fish in it.

The investment banker was impressed by the quality of the fish and asked the Mexican how long it took to…


Rome

Every other month, Tech Twitter finds a brand new note-taking application that is clearly better than all others. However, about once a year there is a king of Note-Taking applications. Last year it was Notion and this year it is Roam Research.

As an observer of this community, I saw my feed getting clogged with Roam Research tweets by early adopters such as Nat Eliason. I was conflicted. On one hand I was pretty excited that there was this cool new app to play around with and build my second brain.

However deep inside there was havoc. I had spent…


Sad Person

Imagine you are the person who is known for your academic achievements and you do poorly for your exam… How do you deal with this…

I recently read a blog post by Mark Mason which was titled Diversify Your Identity. I realised that this is a great way of dealing with setbacks and disappointment when I read Ali Abdaal’s of the same topic.

For example, if someone is only known for their academic achievements and success, when they do poorly for an exam, they will be absolutely devastated. It might seem like their entire world just ended.

Well, this is…

I first discovered the Distraction Free iPhone through the book Make Time by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky.

Here’s a passage from the make time blog which led Jake to use a distraction free iPhone.

In 2012, I realized I had a problem. My iPhone made me twitchy. It called to me from my pocket, the way the Ring called Bilbo Baggins. My moment of clarity happened in my living room. I was sitting on the floor one evening, building train tracks with my kids, when my older son said: “Dad why are you looking at your phone?”

He wasn’t…


Make Time is another one of those epic productivity books like Getting Things Done by David Allen or Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport.

This book was quite different from other books as it is more like a interview with the two authors with each section being labelled Jake and JZ so that we can understand which methods work for them and how they implemented these strategies in their real life.

This forms a kind of personal connection that we have with the author rather than them just writing down a step by step process on how we can MAKE TIME…


Have you ever realised that our mobile phones are like slotmachines in our pockets?

The moment you open your phone, all your apps are inviting you to click on them due to the colourful icons and bright red notifications so that you spend more time using their service.

It’s like walking along a busy street where all the shop owners are calling out your name wanting you to spend as much time as possible in their store so that buy the many products that they are selling.

‘Billions of dollars have been invested to try and figure out how to…


TikTok

YouTube has long been the go to place for video content on the internet. While there have been attempts by other companies to take over the throne, they have been unsuccessful.

Do you remember Vine, Dailymotion, Vimeo?

However there is now a “new” player on the block.

TikTok

TikTok is home to the internets short form video content. It has a billion users, of which many are younger people. While it has been successful as a platform in attracting many users with its dopamine filled short form video content of dances, memes and funny challenges, it has been under scrutiny…
