How to Pick Your Life Partner - Part 2

How to Pick Your Life Partner - Part 2
This is Part 2. Part 1 is here. Often, the key to succeeding at something big is to break it into its tiniest pieces and focus on how to succeed at just one piece. When we examined procrastination, we talked about how a great achievement is just what a long series of unremarkable tasks looks like from far away. In the pixel post, we looked at a human life up close and saw that it was just an ordinary Wednesday, again and again and again—and that achieving life happiness was all about learning to be happy on a routine weekday. I think the same idea applies to marriage. From afar, a great marriage is a sweeping love story, like a marriage in a book or a movie. But human happiness doesn’t function in sweeping strokes, because we don’t live in broad summations—we’re stuck in the tiny unglamorous folds of the fabric of life, and that’s where our happiness is determined. Marriage isn’t the honeymoon in Thailand—it’s day four of vacation #56 that you take together. 1) An Epic Friendship Sources Related:  sevWedding V&J

How to Pick Your Life Partner - Part 1 To a frustrated single person, life can often feel like this: And at first glance, research seems to back this up, suggesting that married people are on average happier than single people and much happier than divorced people.1 But a closer analysis reveals that if you split up “married people” into two groups based on marriage quality, “people in self-assessed poor marriages are fairly miserable, and much less happy than unmarried people, and people in self-assessed good marriages are even more happy than the literature reports”.2 In other words, here’s what’s happening in reality: Dissatisfied single people should actually consider themselves in a neutral, fairly hopeful position, compared to what their situation could be. All the research on how vastly happiness varies between happy and unhappy marriages makes perfect sense, of course. So how big a deal is it? Well, start by subtracting your age from 90. (Sure, people get divorced, but you don’t think you will. Intense shit.

untitled kā veiksmīgi izveidot ieradumus? | Mani Turcijas mirkļi Meklējot internetā rakstus par izdegšanas sindromu (par to vēlāk, man vēl jāizlaiž caur sevi), uzgāju kādu Psychology Today rakstu par ieradumu maiņu. Interesanta perspektīva/idejas, kuras nu izmēģinu uz sevi. Mans mērķis ir regulāras un daudzveidīgas sporta aktivitātes ikdienā. Ko gan par to saka Gregory Ciotti? 1. Viņš apgalvo, ka, ja darbība ir vienkārši paveicama, ir lielāka varbūtība, ka jūs to darīsiet regulāri. Viņš min piemēru, ka mīl skriet no rītiem, bet nemīl aukstumu. 2. Ieteikums vecs kā pasaule, vai ne? Pavisam praktisks piemērs no autora – lai lielais mērķis kalpo kā X mūsu plāna kartē. 3. Šī ideja apgalvo, ka uzdevumu X ir vieglāk izpildīt regulāri, ja tam vienmēr seko uzdevums Y. 4. Autors apgalvo, ka saskaņā ar pētījumiem, cilvēkam stiprāka par vēlmi uzvarēt, ir vēlme nezaudēt. Triks šeit ir tāds, ka, kad reiz esam pārtraukuši un pievīluši sevi, atmetam ar roku `aj, neskrēju divas dienas, trešā neskriešana jau vairs neko nemainīs, varu gulēt un lūrēt seriālus`.

untitled The 25 Books Every Traveler Needs To Read — Zachary Kyra-Derksen Quote from The Snow Leopard: “The sun is roaring, it fills to bursting each crystal of snow. I flush with feeling, moved beyond my comprehension, and once again, the warm tears freeze upon my face. These rocks and mountains, all this matter, the snow itself, the air, the earth is ringing. The Snow Leopard chronicles the 1973 journey undertaken by Peter Matthiessen and field biologist George Schaller into Nepal’s remote mountains where they study Himalayan blue sheep, and seek out the elusive snow leopard.

Paradise Lost: The Hippie Refugee Camp Let me tell you about a place called Taylor Camp, a tropical ocean-front utopia without rules, politics or bills to pay. Anti-establishment all the way, clothing was optional and decisions were made according to the “vibes”. It was the ultimate hippie fantasy. Taylor Camp began in the Spring of 1969, with thirteen hippies seeking refuge from the ongoing campus riots in America and police brutality. Having fled their homes, they headed for Kauai in Hawaii, then a very remote and unspoilt land with just a single traffic light on the island. “We were involved in the anti-war movement and Berkeley was ready to explode. Poor, homeless and uninterested in living any kind of standard lifestyle, it wasn’t long before the tribe of hippies landed themselves and their children in jail for vagrancy. These photographs were taken by Taylor Camp resident, John Wehrheim. There was no electricity or amenities of any kind and Howard pretty much left them to it. “We were naked. “Remember the mango pies?

untitled 13 lietas, kuras psiholoģiski stipri cilvēki nekad nedara Lūk, 13 lietas, kuras nekad nedara stipri cilvēki:1. Netērē laiku sevis žēlošanaiNevaino ne apstākļus, ne cilvēkus, kuri jūs nenovērtē. Viņi uzņemas atbildību par savu rīcību un dzīvi, zinot, ka pasaule ne vienmēr ir taisnīga, bet dzīve ne vienmēr ir rožu lauks 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. untitled Latvietim atgriezties Latvijā. Mans Dvēseles Kliedziens. | anninnja Man ir pārmetuši visi šie patrioti par to, cik nepareizi ir tas, ka esmu aizbraukusi uz ārzemēm, nodevu Latvijas valsti, kāpēc maksāju nodokļus ārzemju valdībām, kāpēc runāju citā valodā, mācos ārzemju skolās? Jo gribu izaugt, attīstīties un iemācīties to, ko es nevarētu iemācīties šeit. Internacionāla vide, pieredze, redzējums. Tev liekas ir viegli dzīvot ārzemes? Strādāt? Bet? Kādi man vēl ir varianti? Tāpēc, Jūs, šīs organizācijas, kuras cīnās par to, lai latvieši atgriežas. Ja māte savus bērnus visus mīl vienādi, tad Latvija drīzāk ir ļaunā pamāte. Šī nav tikai mana pieredze, ir citi, kas ir mēģinājuši atgriezties tieši tāpat, bet viņi gaidīja, kamēr dabūs darbu Latvijā, lai atgrieztos, bet protams nekādas atbildes. Tie, kas man kādreiz pārmetīs braukšanu prom, ne tikai nezin, CIK smags lēmums tas ir bijis, bet tagad esot šeit, cik PAREIZS tas ir bijis… Like this: Like Loading...
