Why Today’s Men and Women Hide Their Intentions?

Very interesting article that explains pretty well how much today’s society is hiding their intentions when it comes to pursuing what they want because they don’t want to be judged by the society. Naturally how it is leading into dissatisfaction in sexual life, and so on:

Constantly to chase after what’s interesting is to miss something crucial about life.

Interestingness gives the mind something to chew on – but the best experiences come when you stop chewing.

When you’re watching a stunning sunset, Eckhart Tolle asks, “could you say, ‘This sunset is interesting’? Only if you were trying to write a PhD about sunsets… Truly look, and then what you’re looking at goes beyond interesting… There’s nothing interesting about it, and yet it’s awe-inspiring.”

What Will I Learn in My 40s?


”..When you’re wondering whether she’s his daughter or his girlfriend, she’s his girlfriend.”

A nice quote from a nice NYT article (note to self: Google what else you can say in place of “article”). Long story —which you should read in my opinion, short: you learn how not to give a shit to what people think of you.

Distraction and Procrastination

”..Every morning I tell myself, Today has to be productive — and then something happens that prevents me from writing… Something always happens. Each morning I already know I will be able to waste the whole day. There is always something to do: go to the bank, the post office, pay some bills … always some bureaucratic tangle I have to deal with..” - Italo Calvino

Why Time Slows Down When We’re Afraid, Speeds Up as We Age, and Gets Warped on Vacation

During ordinary life, time appears to pass at a normal pace, and we use markers like the start of the workday, weekends, and bedtime to assess the rhythm of things. But once we go on vacation, the stimulation of new sights, sounds, and experiences injects a disproportionate amount of novelty that causes these two types of time to misalign. The result is a warped perception of time.

What do you think you get if you add 1+2+3+4+5+… all the way on up to infinity? Probably a massively huge number, right? Nope. You get a small negative number: -1/12
