We all have been there, where it took us forever to write an article. We all want to share content that would keep us connected with our readers.
Here’s my advice on how to write faster:
First let me say that everybody I know struggles with this very issue, especially when you are first starting out. Everyone had to write a lot of content sometimes that would take two to three days to get out one good article, so I totally know how you feel. …
How would you like to visit an island full of snakes whose venom is so potent, it dissolves human flesh? Or a government installation so top secret, that if caught inside without proper ID you’ll be shot on sight? What about Walt Disney’s secret club, and the only place in Disneyland where alcohol is served?
This world is full of wonderful places to visit, but there’s places so dangerous, so secret, and so exclusive, that you will never, ever be allowed to visit.

If you’ve ever visited Disneyland, you know it’s a wonderful place full of magic…
We humans are unable to experience the true nature of the universe, unfiltered. Our senses and brains can only process a fraction of the world. So we have to use concepts and tools, to learn about the true nature of reality.
Technological progress not only widened our knowledge about the universe, it also made us aware of unsettling possibilities. In the future, it might become possible to simulate entire universes.
But if this is an option, how can we know that it’s not already happened?
What if we are not creators, but creations? Is it possible that we are not…
Freud’s theory of psychosexual development claims that as we grow up, we pass through five critical phases. Our sex drive, which Freud called the libido, focuses on a different erogenous zone at each phase.
We call the phases Oral, Anal, Phallic, Latency, and Genital. If our experience during any of these phases was traumatic, we might develop fixations later in life such as neurosis, dependencies, addictions, or depression.
The Oral Phase, age zero to one. In the first year of our lives, we discover the world through our oral senses. Our supreme pleasure comes from sucking our mother’s breast or…
When you call customer service and hear this “to ensure quality service your call may be monitored or recorded”, they’re not kidding.
Over the last year, the Marchex Institute analyzed over 600,000 recorded phone conversations Americans made to businesses in the United States. Turns out, people from Ohio were the most likely to use curse words — the ‘A’ word, the ‘F’ word, and the ‘S’ word. Washington state residents were the least likely to use bad words.
But what makes a word bad? Oh, be careful because etymologically speaking even the word ‘bad’ can be considered a bad word…
You are bored of your current situation, scrolling through Facebook and seeing example after example of what seems like perfect relationships. You know you shouldn’t feel jealous, but you do. Ok, you think, time to hit Tinder and find that same true love.
You are kind of picky.
Too old — Swipe left.
Too young — Swipe left.
Too fat — Swipe left.
Too thin — Swipe left again.
And on like this until you come across someone who looks just your type. …
Yukio Mishima, a pristine figure, poet, playwright, actor, model, Shintoist, nationalist, and founder of the Tatenokai, an unarmed civilian militia. Mishima is considered one of the most important Japanese authors of the 20th century. He was considered for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968, but the award went to his countryman and benefactor, Yasunari Kawabata.
Here I am sharing some lines from some of his best works that enthralled me. The third one is my favorite.
The Google Ngram Viewer allows you to search words and phrases in 5.2 million books published between 1500 and 2008. It’s a great way to see how the words we use have changed over time,1979 was a significant year.
According to the Ngram Viewer, it was the first year we begin to use the word “delete” more often than the word erase. “Forget” is by far more pervasive in our communication, but how does a computer forget?
When Stalin decided that Trotsky was an enemy of the state, he had Trotsky removed from photos he appeared in with Lenin. Plenty…
More than a hundred kills with no remorse.
“How do you feel about killing,” asks the interviewer.
“I don’t…it doesn’t bother me at all. I don’t have a feeling one way or the other.”
He’d be asked the same question in another interview, and that time he would reply, “Nothing haunts me, no murders haunt me.”
This is the story of Richard Kuklinski, a man associated with frozen water not only for the total lack of feeling, or fear, that he was known for but also for the way in which he disposed of the many people whose last sight…
I am a big believer in the law of attraction and I think energy flowing inside you can pull or push the great things from you. There are times in life when it is really hard to stay positive and negative energies bring the worst for us.
