How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? – Satchel Paige

Yay! It’s my birthday today.

I don’t know why but I don’t like celebrating it today! Okay, it’s not a big deal.

Let’s get into the post.

This post is a collection of few random things I learned in 23 years of my life.

  1. The secret to online success – don’t open Internet first thing in the morning.
  2. Music heals everything (especially this and this – don’t know how many times I played them both).
  3. When you’re in trouble, keep calm and control your tongue.
  4. Never drink and drive.
  5. The surefire way to make money is – help as many people as possible.
  6. Less is always more.
  7. Don’t depend on anyone too much in this world!
  8. Learn to save money. Emergency funds are very important.
  9. If we do not feel grateful for what we already have, what makes us think we’d be happy with more?
  10. After much trail and error, I learned minimalist blog designs convert more.
  11. Some people are like clouds. When they disappear, it’s a brighter day.
  12. If possible, try to kill procrastination – it makes easy things hard, hard things harder.
  13. Work hard (really hard) and be nice to people on your way up :)
  14. The pain you feel today, will be the strength you feel tomorrow
  15. Do not call procrastination laziness, call it fear.
  16. Be the type of person you want to meet (for me, it’s Aamir khan, I love his off-screen presence).
  17. When you’re up, your friends know who you are.  When you’re down, you know who your friends are.
  18. No one can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
  19. Start with why before setting any goal (more here)
  20. Aim HIGH! (My next goal is to get 10K email subscribers on LBT, what’s yours?)
  21. Aiming high won’t work if you don’t have a plan (planning is everything)
  22. Don’t teach others what you can’t do
  23. Take time everyday to praise someone – but always be genuine.

BTW here’s my recent picture.

A special thanks to Sijo Joy for remembering me to write about my “birthday post” on LBT. I wrote a post exactly an year back (here).
