If you are a terrible procrastinator like me, you can do it too.

Unlike you, I procrastinate a lot. I mean A LOT.

Though I have published more than 200 articles in my one year on this platform, I am — in reality — a terrible procrastinator and a lazy writer. Yes! That’s the god honest truth.

I have so many writing ideas in my head, and most of the time, I failed to put them on the blank canvas of this digital space due to procrastination.

So, my ideas get old and sometimes face an untimely death. But enough is enough! …

I think these are my most beautiful articles on Medium.

I have been writing on this platform for around one year, and I still enjoy writing and publishing here. This is, I think, a rare case for me because I am (like many of you) a very distracted person who always fails to do things on a regular basis.

I tried many a time to follow a routine or continue something (exercise, dieting, etc.) regularly but failed every time. Somehow, writing on this platform becomes an exception. I started writing on Medium a year ago, and here I am — still writing and publishing. …


Please don’t read if you are too sensitive.

Medium-algorithm is a puzzle, but listicles are the clues to solve it.

Aristotle was a young frustrated guy in Stagira, Greece. He was suffering from thoughts-disease as he had opinions about everything in life.

His mind never rested and always gave him this-and-that to produce unique thoughtful writings.

He had a Facebook account where he used to vomit his extraordinary ideas on a regular basis, but sadly nobody gave a damn. He posted a great piece about politics a few weeks ago but found no likes or comments.

So, to satisfy his ego, he liked his own post and consoled…

A soul wandering in the wilderness

Magic happens when you dare to say goodbye to your comfort zone and hit the road. You come across things that unknown — you hear the music unheard — you discover the beauty hidden from your very city-eyes.

All you need is to find some time to start your journey to the destination undefined. Leave the brick-walls and conditioned-air just for a day and see what happens under the sun.

The Journey Begins

When you take the bus, you don’t know your destination. But you have no fear of being lost — because you want to get lost and immerse in places unexplored.

Smartness has nothing to do with your looks, money, or fame.

Well, that’s an ambitious title, isn’t it? I mean, we know who is smart and who is not. We see them all the time. Smart people are everywhere. They are in the movies, on social media, on YouTube, and in magazines. They also seem omnipresent in all fancy events that have red carpets.

They look tall, beautiful, shiny, and of course, sexy. They have money, image, fame, fan, and followers. Some of them are so smart that they have already become the influencer. Their tiny pieces of advice are the breakfasts for millions of people.

They wear clothes from Armani…

Self-trust is the single most important thing for every writer.

Have you ever entangled yourself in the shackles of self-doubt and quit writing for a few days (if not months)? Have you ever gone through sheer procrastination thinking that your writing is not good enough? Have you ever felt that what you write doesn’t matter at all?

Well, at some point in life, all writers start to doubt their works. They think they suck at writing and what they write has little or no value.

When self-doubt takes over, all writers, including you, fall into the trap called “writer’s block.” Eventually, you get frustrated and lack the motivation for writing…

My cat changed my life!

I am not exaggerating a bit. It really did change my life. Now every morning, I wake up listening to its meow, meow. And I tell you — it’s not good at all. I mean, I want to sleep a few hours more — but my cat doesn’t like that. So, I wake up and either prepare food for it or play to pacify its restlessness. My cat has become my alarm clock — but with no snooze button.

If you don’t know, my cat’s name is Mini, and it’s nearly one year old. I…

What everybody is telling you about the perfect body is a fat big lie.

Standing in front of a mirror, you think that you are an ugly piece of shit when everybody else is just hot and sexy.

If you are a man, you lack your abs, six-pack, or perfectly crafted muscles that are constantly trying to come out of your T-shirt. And if you are a woman, you curse god for doing injustice to you. All the other girls look hot in a bikini, but all you’ve got is some ugly fat. So, you die inside while exposing your body. Shame! Shame! Shame! Why me!!!???, you said to yourself.

You deserve better, right…

A solid foundation is where your heart should be.

In our childhood, we all loved to play with Legos. And now, as a grown-up, we probably buy Legos for our kids to develop their creative thinking, imagination, and problem-solving skills through fun and play.

Legos take your time, challenge you, force you to create something, and thus, develop your soft skills (well, if you’re a Simon Sinek fan, then it’s human skills, or whatever you name it). But have you ever thought that our life is, in many ways, very similar to a box of Legos?

Yes, you may have heard in Forrest Gump that life is a box…

Make an environment-conscious future generation.

Today’s children are tomorrow’s future. But sadly, the future doesn’t seem very bright. Why? Because nowadays, kids have almost no relationship with the natural world.

All they care about is their smartphones, tabs, computers, and social media profiles. And the shocking reality is we hardly encourage them to get closer to the natural world around them.

In our mad pursuit of ruining everything, we think it’s okay for kids not to have a relationship with nature. We think if they study hard, keep pace with the tech-driven world, and earn more money in the future, everything will be okay. So…
