"Because you need more in life than love. Love is great. Love is necessary. Love is beautiful. But love is not enough."

In 1967, John Lennon wrote a song called, “All You Need is Love.” He also beat both of his wives, abandoned one of his children, verbally abused his gay Jewish manager with homophobic and anti-semitic slurs, and once had a camera crew film him lying naked in his bed for an entire day.…

"Our grandparents had to learn to master their time and their energy in order to take advantage of the labor economy. Our parents had to master their minds and their problem solving in order to take advantage of the knowledge economy. We must learn to master our focus and our self-awareness to properly take advantage of the attention economy."

Last week, I logged onto Facebook to see a story about a man who got drunk, cut off his friend’s penis and then fed it to a dog. This was followed by a story of a 100-year-old woman who had never seen the ocean before. Then eight ways I can totally know I’m a 90’s kid. Then 11 steps to make me a “smarter Black Friday shopper,” an oxymoron if I ever saw one.

#newblogpost on #sousvoice - What does #creativity mean in different contexts?
http://bit.ly/creativityincontext
I happened to stumble upon Ganavya Doraiswamy's TED talk and found some interesting takeaways as follows: While only some of us are privileged and can afford to go behind creative pursuits such as arts, and music, all of us can be creative. Creativity is for everyone including the wealthy, who seeks higher needs on Maslow’s hierarchy and the poor, who are struggling to meet the lower level needs on Maslow’s hierarc...

As musicians, assuming we have been doing regular, disciplined practice for years, it is important to realize that our musical skills mature and becomes better as we age, just like a seasoned wine. Why is this realization important? Popular Indian playback singer, Gayatri Asokan in one of her interviews mentioned how a vocalist's voice matures after the age of 40. She also, mentions how Kishori Amonkar's concerts sound so carefree and ...

"Modern society multiplies our opportunities. Therefore, modern society also multiplies our opportunity costs, making it costlier and more difficult to commit all of our time and energy to any one thing without feeling some form of remorse or regret.
Enter the concept of “FOMO” or “Fear of Missing Out.” We live a life that is constantly pelted with reminders of everything we are unable to become.
Back, say, 200 years ago, people didn’t have this problem. If you were born a farmer, you likely didn’t have many opportunities beyond farming. Moreover, you likely weren’t even aware of opportunities beyond farming. Therefore, devoting everything in your life to becoming an expert farmer involved next to no opportunity costs and next to no FOMO. After all, there was nothing else to miss out on.
In a bizarre and backwards way, people back in the day could “have it all.” They had it all simply for the fact that there was nothing else for them to have.
But what if the answer isn’t to do more?

What if the answer is to want less?

What if the solution is simply accepting our bounded potential, our unfortunate tendency as humans to inhabit only one place in space and time. What if we recognize our life’s inevitable limitations and then prioritize what we care about based on those limitations?
What if it’s as simple as stating, “This is what I choose to value more than everything else,” and then living with it?
the people who struggle with the so-called “life purpose” question, always complain that they don’t know what to do. But the real problem is not that they don’t know what to do. It’s that they don’t know what to give up."

Why the idea that we can get everything we want out of life is flawed, and how we should deal with it...
