Every one of us wants a good life, right? I don’t think there is anyone in this world that says: “F*ck good life! I want to live as miserable as possible!” The thing is that a good life is formed of multiple areas, which has different levels of importance, depending of what you want (career, family, friends, health and so on). What strokes me the … Continue reading Losing Focus: An important problem nowadays?
Have you noticed that you feel different in different environments? I’m sure you have so you probably wondered how is that impacting your life, besides your mood, thoughts and emotions. As for everybody, this pandemic had a huge impact over my life, especially since I’m working from home since March. Because of this and the fact that I’m very comfortable in my environment, I concentrated … Continue reading Can environment kill creativity?
You and I know both know that each book, good or bad, has a beginning and an end. However, even though a book comes to an end, reading and learning never stop. This is why I’m sharing another 5 books that changed my mindset, in addition to the top 5. Here are the books, in a random order: #5 The Subtle Art of Not Giving … Continue reading Another 5 Books That Changed My Mindset
Over the years I realized how different perspectives coming from different people can change our own perspective about everything, and, therefore, our life. The most important part is that we don’t even to know those people or directly interact with them, but we can interact with their perspective through their writings. Throughout my life, whenever I was in a tough place, the only thing that … Continue reading Top 5 Books That Changed My Mindset
Two – three weeks ago I wrote about why driving brings out the worst of us. However, as always, it’s all about perspective, therefore there are some psychological benefits of driving, under some circumstances. As I mentioned in that post, “I believe the car acts like a shell, a secure place where we can feel free, especially if we’re alone in the car. When we’re … Continue reading The Up Side of Driving – Not everything is bad!
What do you miss the most in these times of crisis? PS: If my writings mean something to you and if you feel you can learn anything from me, check out my book (Fighting the Inside Dragons) on Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback format! Continue reading Question of the Day – No. 510
Today my mind wanted to wonder about the limitation a human being has. Of course, this is not about our physical limitations, but more about our mental limitations, which seem to guide our behavior. With this in mind, we might say that our behavior is limited by our mind, right? If you think that some things are put there by others (e.g. parents, society, laws … Continue reading Our own self-drawn box
In a world full of stimuli, we want everything. And with everything, frustration and regret comes. You start to double-check every decision and you keep comparing it to the endless potential. And for what? The biggest problem raises from the fact that we rarely analyze what we really need in life. We want this and that and what our neighbor has and what our friends … Continue reading Want vs Need
I know, I know! The first impulse is to throw rotten eggs in this title because we both know it’s not true (at least, most of the time). So the question now is: when doing nothing is the hardest thing to do? I think this is related to having control over the situation because that’s when fear and desperation have a say. When it seems … Continue reading Doing Nothing: The Hardest Thing To Do?
If you don’t live somewhere alone, isolated from others, then you see people and you notice them and their behavior. The question is: how often do you judge them based on their behavior and how often do you seek and try to understand the reason behind that behavior? One of my biggest beliefs is that noticing one’s behavior is not enough for drawing a conclusion, … Continue reading Reason vs Behavior: Which one is more important?
Even though I haven’t written anything about movies as I did last year, I remained a huge movies fan. Last night I watched The Two Popes, a recent movie directed by Fernando Meirelles, where I heard the quote “Small pleasures are important”. This made me think about how important they really are and why we should pay (some) attention to small pleasures. But what a … Continue reading “Small pleasures are important”
The human behavior is so unpredictable that understanding seems impossible from time to time. If you have a quick look world-wide, you’ll soon realize there are so many situations that seem SF, you’ll feel the need to double-check if you’re watching a movie or not. So today I’ll mention my two fears that rule them all (sorry for the Lord of The Rings pun, but … Continue reading The Two Fears that rule them all
This is a deep topic and I hope I’m as close to ready as I can for approaching it, so let’s jump into it. In the past three years I got very interested in self-development and I noticed a pattern across all motivational speakers: they all talk about finding your passion and following your destiny. But what if that’s not possible? What if there isn’t … Continue reading Destiny: A Myth?
As always, I’m interested about the reason behind every human behavior and there is one answer that covers everything: the inner universe. The most interesting part about our inner universe is that we barely get to know it, and when we do know parts of it, we often go in the opposite direction. I believe there are two strong forces that govern our inner universe: … Continue reading Our Mysterious Inner Universe
I should say that I’m currently working on a new book, but if I’m honest, I must admit that I’m not working on it at all. The sad part is that the most of it is done since May this year and I haven’t open any of the documents ever since. Why? That’s a great question! I don’t really know why… maybe it’s because I … Continue reading The Struggle of Writing
Today I’m going to share a story about how my own brain f*cked me hard, together with a pair of wet jeans (I promise it’s different than anything you can imagine!) Many many years ago when I was just a young boy (I think I was about 13 years old), my family and I had to move in with my grandparents because my grandmother got … Continue reading A Ghost-y Story
Pain, truth, thoughts, emotions and everything our fragile bodies carry has a place in this world. Any demon can be defeated with the proper company and with the proper weapons and that’s why this blog exists. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings with us. Thank you for spending (or investing) some of your time in reading Pointless Overthinking and thank you for letting … Continue reading The Growth
*Attention! This is going to be a brutal post!* From all the things we have in this world, there is one that rules them all (and no, it’s not the one ring). There is something that has the ability to control anything and anyone, if leveraged correctly. People tend to do anything for this, regardless if it’s moral or not, if it’s a good thing … Continue reading The World-Ruler
These three aspects seem to be so well delimited that it’s hard to believe they co-exist inside of us all the time. Even though yesterday seems to be over and that tomorrow is yet to come, we do think and behave now based on yesterday and tomorrow. Wanna hear how this got into my mind now? No? I don’t care, I’ll tell you anyways. Yesterday … Continue reading The Past, The Present and The Future
Today’s a pretty rough day because I barely slept last night. And it’s not like I did anything… I only had a constant thought-flow with things that could go bad in my life (that and the fact that one of my cats made strange noises all night long). The thoughts were so bad that I literally got sick (headaches and stomachaches). And for what? For … Continue reading Thoughts Manager
