What Make You Feel Satisfy And Happy

Do you ever seen someone rich but unhappy? When you asked them why, what was their answer? Normally, they will say, “I feel empty”.

So, what do we do to make us ‘full’? Here are some tips for you based on my life experience:

1. Read at list 10 pages of book per day. This will make your brain have something to think. As I said, book. Not a paper, magazine, comic or blog. You need something serious to read that make your brain working hard to understand what you read. This will avoid an Alzheimer’s disease as you grow older. The process of learning will not end when you out of school or colleague.

2. Eat when you feel really hungry. This will make your food taste delicious than before even though it is only a slice of bread. Other than that, you will free from obesity and save your money too. For you who has a gastric, please follow your eat schedule.

3. Exercise at least 30 minutes per day. This is the hardest thing to-do-list. These include your walking, step on stairs or even running. But this depends on what type of your occupation is. Exercise will release your tension, keep your health and make yourself reborn.

4. Talk with someone. That’s why people writing blog. However, talking with someone is better because it is two way communications with fast respond. Plus you can see that person reaction and improve your communication skill. Messenger is another alternative but reality is better.

5. Help people if you can. That’s why poor and rich people exist in this people. We still rely on each other. If you’re rich, why don’t you donate a little penny for charity? You will feel happy when you saw peoples that you help happy. If you are not rich you can still help people. Why don’t working at welfare centre twice per month? You will know how lucky you are than them for having better life.

6. Always visit your parents. This is mother of happiness. Don’t forget they will always pray for you.

7. Be yourself. Nowadays, everyone try to be like someone else because they feel pathetic. You don’t need to do that. This will only make you suffer. Be humble. People like you because of who you are, not because you are someone else. Remember, you are unique. No one can be like you.

8. Wake up before sunrise. Watching the sunlight entering your house will make you feel fresh and alert yourself that new day has come. So that you will prepare yourself properly in the morning. By the way, you need to sleep early to wake up early.

9. Smile. Yes, just smile to anyone that you bumped into except for bad ass looking person. If that person smile back, then you day will be cheerful.

10. Forgive and forget. Hold a grudge doesn’t benefit you at all. This will only make you suffer.

So, why don’t you try it because there is nothing to lose.

Talk With Bill Gates

While I'm online today, one of my friends told me that he talked with Bill Gates. What? Seriously? These questions pop-up in my mind spontaneously. Of course I believed in him since he is a genius in programming, working for INTEL right now.

Then I ask him, "Dude, what reason can make you talked to him?".

"Nothing particular man. Well, just simple talk like how are you, what is your story now and etc." he answered.

"Whew.. You sure a lucky man. Say hello to him when you get in touch with him again", I said.

"I think you should say to him personally", he said (I think with cheeky smile).

With curiosity, I asked him, "Don't joke around. I know who I am. Mathematician sure not in same side of programmer, especially a genius one".

"Why not? If I can make it, you can make it too" he said.

"There you go again. Sometimes, there is something impossible for us dude", I answered.

"Just go to dude!", a reply that I never want to heard.

If he was with me at that time, then 'SMACK!'. No option. Now, all of you sure fall out too, right? So, just go to to chat with Bill Gates.

Here is a capture screen when I chat with Bill Gates. As you can see, 'he' is not a real Gates. Of course not because there is no need for real Gates to chat with anonymous, unknown or unfamous person like us. And this site was not created by Gates but the way that AI (artificial intelligence) responded is quite good. So, time for you chat with 'Gates'!

Don't Build A Cheap Traffic

Leave a comment on another blog is a good way to gain traffic to your blog or web site. But, will that visitor come again to your blog in the future? This is a question that always singing in my mind since I start writing for my friend's blog around 1 year ago.

When you read a comment on someone's blog, what is your expression if:

Topic - How To Write A Good Article

Comment 1 - Thanks dude. Love u!

Comment 2 - Actually a good article not only depend on the content. How you compress your information in short write to be easily understand by your readers can be a key too. This is what I practiced.

Your curiosity about commenter 2 is high, right? His/her comment leave a good impression on you because it is valuable.

This is what called a good comment or content addition. If you are commenter 2, the percentage of readers on that blog to go to your blog (if you leave a link) is high. People will remember your comment on that post and remember your blog (if he/she goes to your blog and you own a good one). This build your blog's reputation, thus build traffic to your blog in the future.

However, it doesn't mean readers will not visit commenter 1's blog. Just the percentage is lower since it is common comment and no information at all. Other than that, begging people to visit to your blog will only build poor reputation to your blog. So, don't ever leave a comment with 'Please visit my site'.

(1) good comment = traffic
(2) good comment + your blog is good = traffic + build reputation + loyal readers

In simple way, whose artist you like the most? I'm sure you like the one that pretty/handsome, talented, smart and nice than the one that beset with gossip only.

As a conclusion, cheap traffic will not last long. If you're new in the world of blogging, then get practice this. People's first impression will decide your blog's future.

Creativity vs Wisdom

Recently, I have been in intense debate about creativity versus wisdom. It started when my old friend, a programmer asked me, “Which one comes first, creativity or your wisdom?”.

I stacked. This is not easy. And by coincidence, my first post got a respond by some readers and they brought up the important of creativity. Thanks. This post can be considered as an extension.

So, which one? Before that, we need to make our view smaller. Let’s take a famous field today, which used to measure person’s level of IQ, which are mathematic, physic and programming.

Mathematic is part of every field in this world, except art. It is language of physic. Back to the day when we start learning math, we introduced with number and its value. Then we taught about plus, minus and so on. The symbol and operation added as we rise to higher level.

In high school, we taught physic and computer. And if you accepted to university or college after that, maybe you will learn computer programming if your course need you to know programming.

I by myself learn all of these three which have become core of my daily life. So, my answer is, it depends on what level of your life is.

As engineer and based on my life experience, creativity is a king. So, wisdom is not important? Don’t take it a wrong way.

When you learn math in high school, have you ever faced a question that you can’t answered caused by forgotten of formula? Then you will come up with a solution, which is combination of other formula. It always happens to me. And my teacher scolded me because my solution was too long. But she also praised me.

When we look into programming, it needs you to always become creative. Example:

Antivirus A – fast scanning, low system resources

Antivirus B – slow scanning, high system resources

Why antivirus A better than B? Because the programmer take into account for every possibilities that may happen, so that he come up with better solution, better plan of action for antivirus A.

If you know Thomas Edison, a man that only has 3 months of formal education, he is really creative man with limited wisdom (based on his formal education) because he created many useful things for us.

In the world today, everyone are clever and we competing against each other. What differentiates us is not our wisdom anymore. But it doesn’t mean if you are stupid but creative, you will be better than anyone else.

Your wisdom is driver and your creativity is junctions. Creativity without enough wisdom will lead a person to chaos. Wisdom here include etiquette, discipline and etc. A successful person are creative with enough wisdom.
