7 Things to Remember if You Feel Like Nothing Is Happening in Your Life

To say you feel like nothing’s happening in your life does not make sense. You might say, “Well, that’s rich, smart-ass. I know nothing’s happening.” But have you considered the possibility that it’s only you who thinks that? That it isn’t an objective truth you’re making it to be? Well, that’s a good start.

That you feel that way might only be the result of a few (or many) events that seemed to have connived to lead you to believe that indeed, you’re just a piece of nothing.

Here are seven things I want you to remember if somehow you’re caught in this “unmistakable” situation.

How to Set SMART Goals: The Most Crucial Rules to Follow

One thing’s for sure: I wish I had known about SMART Goals when I was twelve. But perhaps that’s one of the reasons why SMART Goals were invented—to make up for all the lost time in which people had no idea about them.

The idea of SMART Goals has permeated almost all spheres of life: the workplace, business, education, medicine, even parenting… But the most important perhaps is its effect on our personal lives.

We shouldn’t simply go through life without any idea where we’re going. You must have a plan, especially if you’re with people who are unbelievably pessimistic about the world.

What Is Goal Setting and Why Is It Important?

From time to time you might think, “What the fart am I doing?” Or maybe you simply get bored. Or you might think there’s no point in doing that thing that’s supposed to be wonderful.

These epiphany-like moments are precisely why I decided to write this post. It’s nice to remind ourselves about the power of setting goals. It’s ever-important because sometimes there’s this weird sense of entitlement; we should be having what we deserve already. After all, we’re working hard for it, right?

Unfortunately—especially if you’re just starting out—it’s not the case. There’s simply this magical and bitter thing we call “life” that manages to get in the way.

How to Develop Self-discipline: A Guide to Freedom

Self-discipline is boring. It’s a trait that, ironically, seems to require constant change; thus, self-discipline can also be difficult. It can tire you, make you loathe yourself, and trigger some unwanted and unneeded mental gymnastics. It might not be worth any ounce of your being.

What Is Personal Leadership? An Overview of the Possibly-overlooked

We find leadership everywhere—whether we like it or not, even when it doesn’t seem necessary.

The word leadership seems to be a buzzword, too. We can’t blame it, though; a lot could be at stake just because of the leadership, whether it’s of a small business or a huge empire.

However, one thing caught my attention: personal leadership. I didn’t understand what “personal” exactly meant in this curious term.

Is it about leading yourself, as if to say it’s personal to you? Is it about leading others on a personal level? Or is it perhaps about treating things in a personal manner rather than the usual uptight/corporate/formal way of living life in the fast lane?

9 Ideas to Conquer Sleep Procrastination That’s Compromising Your Future

The problem with sleep is that everybody loves it, but many procrastinate on it.

Procrastination is about something we do not want to do.

Do that homework? Start that article? Commute to the gym? Or just take a walk? These can all be troublesome. It’s only natural to procrastinate on these until perhaps a couple of days before the deadline—if there is one.

But sleep…why not sleep? It’s an interesting phenomenon.

Importance of Knowing Your Purpose in Life: 5 Reasons Why You Need to Find It Now

Arguably too many people exist without a purpose in life. They wake up, asking the universe, What the hell is this another day for? Is this all there is? After today, what next?

Don’t get me wrong. Living without a purpose doesn’t happen only to those who seem to be suffering or in pain, or have given up because luck didn’t find their way.

It also happens to people who appear to have it all—the money, the job, the social status. Behind all the nice and fancy stuff, at the end of the day they also ask the same question: What am I here for?

The Top 5 Goal-setting Skills You’ll Ever Need

Goal setting is a skill in and of itself. There’s no doubt about that. There’s also no doubt that it is a skill only a few give some thought about. A lot of people ignore it, especially when they think they have too much on their plate as if goal setting isn’t needed at all to achieve some organization in their life.

While goal setting is a skill, there are “sub-skills” that comprise it; they make up the big picture.

How to Make Good Decisions and Improve Life Every Day

You’re clueless. Everything seems a plausible choice. Between a multitude of possible options, you think there’s only a bit of difference between them.

It’s just that there’s a lot of them.

Do you know how to make good decisions in life? Is there a guarantee that they’re going to be that good? What is a good decision, anyway?

Always Do Your Best When You’re Not Working

Think about how your typical day goes for a moment.

What are the activities you give your all to? Are you the kind who prioritizes work as if your world revolves around it? What are the other aspects of your life in which you always do your best?

You know, sometimes it’s these simple questions—which tend to be the great ones—we forget asking ourselves. Sometimes, if not most of the time, we spend our days without anymore bothering to identify what does and does not matter.
