Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.
Ironically, personal development books, blogs, presentations, short stories, epic novels, stage shows, musicals and whatever other form personal-development comes in these days, don’t really focus on the entire spectrum of personal...

I am a kind of paranoid in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.
– J. D. Salinger
I trust that you’re familiar with the concept of paranoia.Â You know, always thinking that people are out to get you, worried about conspiricies that will end in your ultimate demise, that kind of thing.

–Henry David Thoreau
This post is secretly about gratitude, which I just wrote about not too long ago, so some of the content is going to overlap.Â You’ve been...
