A revelation occurred to me just yesterday (at the time I'm writing this post).  I think that many of us have been living life by just trying to live, without considering the overall picture of our lives.  Steve Jobs has been known to say he lives his life as if…
Our Need For A Redemption Narrative

Our Need For A Redemption Narrative

While I was on a plane ride to Hokkaido, I stumbled across an article on the International New York Times (Nov. 15-16, 2014) in the Editorials Opinion section titled I nearly died.  So what?  I love how the author, Meghan Daum (columnist of the Los Angeles Times), was brutally honest about…

Why Being Spoiled May Not Be That Bad

I'm one of those people that just can't help but debate with their parents.  So today my mom and I were discussing about how Jaycee Chan (Jackie Chan's son) was sentenced to imprisonment for a couple of months, and my mom thinks that going to prison for him is good since he…

Sleep, Hard Work, And Not Inversely Correlated

We grew up thinking that the hardest workers often slept the least, or at least very little.  People make it sound like by sacrificing sleep to work, that we are working hard, and by sleeping a lot, we are not.  This cannot be further than the truth. Sleeping in is completely different…
