Getting shit done - The art of shutting up your mouth

இதனை இதனால் இவன் முடிப்பான்என்றாய்ந்து அதனைஅவன்கண்விடல்.
Well, a lot of people in the world know about Kamasutra from India, but many don’t know about thirukural, a book with short advices for every aspect of life (not to say that Kamasutra is any less important).
The fact is that we ask too much questions instead of just doing and getting shit done. The thirukural which was quoted above says the following: Find a person, who can do the work, Leave the work to him.
Now, this reminds me of an Essay named, “A letter to Garcia”. Read the essay from somewhere in the internet, but I’ll put some excerpts from the essay, to explain the context I’m talking about.
“Summon any one and make this request: "Please look in the encyclopaedia and make a brief memorandum for me concerning the life of Correggio". Will the clerk quietly say, "Yes, sir," and go do the task? On your life, he will not. He will look at you out of a fishy eye and ask one or more of the following questions: Who was…

They never heal; the wounds of the heart - this is how you heal it

They never heal; the wounds of the heart.
In a world which is imperfect, people end up wounding each other, inevitably. The entire BS about forgiving people for what they did to you, never work. Somewhere deep in the psyche, the scar remains making a permanent damage, that's why they call it a bloody scar in the first place. What is done is indeed done. An animal resides inside, still not forgetting, still not forgiving.
So, how do you get over it? How do you get over the pain of the wounds which the people around you have given you?
The answer is so very simple, that I couldn’t believe it when I read it in a book called, "The user manual of the Human Experience".  The author calls it PESD, which stands for Practical emotional self-defence.
How do you put PESD in use? It's so simple.
Ignore, or in fact move away from these people. Distance is the key. Move away. Move to another continent if you have to.  Move to another plane…

A word on Personal Integrity - The real way to obtain integrity!

If you look up a typical dictionary, you'll find the following meaning for integrity.
Definition 1: "The state of being whole and undivided:"
Definition 2: "Moral soundness"
Now you might be wondering why I am quoting these. Well, well, a few days ago I stumbled across a webpage which claimed to advice people on the "Steps to achieving integrity". I literally "Stumbled" upon this page through stumbleupon, a great place to find new ideas (though occasionally it sucks, but sometimes, makes my day).
The webpage had usual shit which they write in self help books. It said that the following to be followed for achieving integrity: 1. Always be honest. 2. Keep up your word. 3. Don't procrastinate. 4. Be punctual. 5. Be humble all the time and let everybody else take away your opportunity. 6. More shit coming up...... stay tuned. It's gonna turn smelly.
I always find in the English language that words don’t all the time possess meanings; th…
