2017 has been wonderful to me and I am so so so grateful for it! Here are some ‘lessons’ I think I definitely need to bring into 2018. Some of the below are things that I have been doing for a few years but still think they are important and need to be reminded of.
Not sure why, but I have a habit of writing down things I want to tweet but I don’t end up tweeting them out. I never have this urge to let the world know my thoughts right at the instant that I am experiencing them. So instead, I write them down, hoping that maybe I will remember later on to let everybody know.
I thought it would be easier to have all these one-liners here instead of bombing my twitter followers with random thoughts all in one go. Here are 12 ideas/thoughts/quotes I have collected in the past month.
Tweet #1: Invisibility is a fate much worst than failure. (source: Medium)
Tweet #2: You are not your ideas. If you identify too closely to your ideas, you’ll take offense when they are challenged. (source: Creativity, Inc).
Tweet #3: Your brain literally begins to shut down when you feel your ideology is threatened. Scientifically proven. (source: You are now less dumb)
Tweet #4: Some situations simply call for foul language. (My thought on “How often do we truly express ourselves to others?)
Tweet #5: A paradox is the truth standing on its head to attract attention. (Oscar Wilde).
Tweet #6: Stop checking your phone. Give your full attention to the person in front of you. He/she deserves it. #annoyed #bye #etiquette #airplanemode
Tweet #7: Having your shit together is a respectable quality. Where is the professionalism? (tough day at work)
Tweet #8: No one person can have a global view of who you are. Someone who doesn’t really know you can’t make it personal. (Discussion with a friend on how we make quick judgements based on first impressions).
Tweet #9: You have to listen carefully, the unconscious mind is crafty. (Sigmund Freud).
Tweet #10: Everyone has a story that can blow your f-ing mind. No Exception. (Source: Medium. Linda Rubright).
Tweet #11: A wonderful flaw about human being is that we’re incapable of making perfect copies. So start copying your heros. (Source: Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon).
Tweet #12: Never let anyone photoshop a picture of you. It creates a false sense of self-confidence. (Source: Medium. Julien Smith).
