12 Choices to Transform Your Life Over the years I have come to believe that life is about choices. And the choices you make eventually shape your day, shape your views, shape your experiences, shape your thoughts and shape your life… There are some life choices over which you have no control or which others will make for you – like when and where you are born, the family you are born to, your life during childhood, the school you went to, etc. etc. etc. Beyond that, there are several other important choices that you make in life. 1. Learning is a choice which you make consciously or unconsciously. 2. The closeness or distances you choose to maintain with family (immediate and beyond) affects your life. 3. Your overall health is a function of many things – the key determinants being the diet you consume and the nature of exercise you ensure on a regular basis. 4. The place you live affects every dimension of your life, whether or not you acknowledge it. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. This post is dedicated to my parents.

How to Be Happier at Work: 10 Tips Happiness--in your business life and your personal life--is often a matter of subtraction, not addition. Consider, for example, what happens when you stop doing the following 10 things: 1. Blaming. People make mistakes. So you blame them for your problems. But you're also to blame. Taking responsibility when things go wrong instead of blaming others isn't masochistic, it's empowering--because then you focus on doing things better or smarter next time. And when you get better or smarter, you also get happier. 2. No one likes you for your clothes, your car, your possessions, your title, or your accomplishments.

Genuine relationships make you happier, and you'll only form genuine relationships when you stop trying to impress and start trying to just be yourself. 3. 4. Interrupting isn't just rude. Want people to like you? 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

I firmly believe that the art of ignorance should be taught in schools. Especially on Mondays, when all the previous week unprocessed stuff seems to crash on us, try to apply this. Slash out Twitter, Facebook, email. 2. Each tiny task that you finish is an achievement. Tuesdays are great for this habit, because they’re the first link after the week hast started. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
