Hope you’re having a beautiful Wednesday.
Today, I want to share some mental models and life truths I find practical.
10-10-10. What are the consequences of my decision in 10 minutes? In 10 months? And in 10 years?
If it’s work, it can wait. Most of the problems solve themselves. Put people first.
Don’t take yourself too seriously. You’re dying. Sooner or later.
Practice prevention instead of solving crises. Avoiding stupidity is easier than seeking brilliance. Charlie Munger confirms, “It is remarkable how much long-term advantage people like us have gotten by trying to be consistently not stupid, instead of trying to be very intelligent.”
You see what you focus on. If I told you to look for blue around you, you would see it more than before. The same is with life, if you search for the bad, you see the nasty and the ugly, if you look for the good, you see more of it. Try it.
Surrender and accept. Suffering from ego is a wrong way to live a good life. The easiest way to improve your life is to give up expectations.
If you missed it, I wrote about self-doubt and how to overcome it.
Welcome to another edition of Life Designed where I share the knowledge and resources to help you live better.

This post isn’t me giving you career advice really – it’s a framework that I think can help you make career decisions that actually reflect who you are, what you want, and what our rapidly changing career landscape looks like today.
Find only the best parts of the internet. From websites to Instagram accounts to YouTube channels.
Purposefinder is a self-knowledge tool. Core aspects include clinical psychology, personal development, depth psychology and many great thinkers.
Darren DeMatas looked into the market for products that people are searching for and buying, and narrowed it down to 10 categories of crafts that you can make and cash in on.
P.A.R.A. stands for Projects — Areas — Resources — Archives, the four top-level categories that encompass every type of information you might encounter in your work and life.
If you’re ready to start a blog, this Friday (November 23) is an excellent time to do it. SiteGround, a hosting that I use will run a 75% off Black Friday discount of all annual shared hosting plans.
Traffic sucks. If you’re thinking about relocating, consider cities with less traffic. Mexico City, Bangkok and Jakarta are the worst.
Food for Thought
“The secret of joy in work is contained in one word: excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” – Pearl S. Buck
“Art does not reproduce what we see; rather, it makes us see.” – Paul Klee
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot
“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.” – Winston Churchill
“You can be the juiciest, ripest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be people who hate peaches.” – Dita Von Teese
