  • 1.Few highly creative people have messy tables, desks, rooms, wardrobes – but that does not mean all the messy people are creative
  • 2.Many high-achievers are very-focused on their big-picture and nothing distracts them – BUT – at those times when things are not challenging enough and when we are caught in routine and are trapped in our comfort-zones - we need to be distracted and feeling the feeling of missing something – so that by getting distracted we can go into thinking about more meaningful things - Both Focus and distraction are essential elements of success.
  • 3.If there we need to choose between being Selfish and being a people pleaser - being selfish is always better compared to living a life just to satisfy them – because it will only fill our lives with regrets as we won't get those things that really matter to us most.
  • 4.Being proud of yourself – that is having the Self-confidence to think highly of yourself, as long as you aren't an arrogant jerk – being Egoist or being arrogant is certainly bad for us all the time
  • 5.Shyness – if being shy makes you think deeper, explore choices and say after weighing – it is great. It is bad if it paralyzes you into inaction or asking for what you want.
  • 6.Fear – for unknown and uncertain situation – fear up-to a level that makes us prepare better is good. It is bad when it stops from taking imperative actions.
  • 7.Cynicism – being skeptical about things at first glance is a great attribute
  • 8.Balance between being Thin and Thick Skinned- very few of us like criticism so we need to be thick skinned -but not paying attention to criticism from people who are smarter than us may make our growth and success stunted – we need to learn to listen to criticisms objectively and not take it personally—only use our listening to make ourselves better
  • 9.Being Pessimistic, Being Positive and Being Pragmatic - Thinking about everything that may go wrong helps us prepare for the worst. As all the time being positive is utter foolish advice – because it is just impossible -Yes we do need to develop the ability to bounce back fast from all the upsets.
  • 10.Procrastination and Laziness – as long as you do this to think through and sleep-over important decisions it is great.
