Thanks for sharing this info and motivating me to overcome a past failure :slight_smile:

I use an iPhone 5, I have a free android phone, a pc with windows 7, access to a mac, and I’m familiarizing myself with Linux ubuntu OS.

I would like to visit Mumbai, Goa, Calcutta, Kashmir, and the Himalayas (off the top of my head) It is kind of a mission to get to India from Florida now because I am still pursuing my masters studies but when I go I would like to spend at least a month traveling and visiting there, if not three months. I have an old Indian pal from Spanish class who also would like to go and visit Kashmir. I would also like to visit the border with Pakistan, go there, and perhaps even Afghanistan to explore the Hindu Kush mountains.

You’re welcome :slight_smile:

I am on a Mac and I am using “Devanagari - QWERTY” < Input Sources < Keyboard < System Preferences.
If you want I can share 6 pics with you to find out how to type the characters in Devanagari script which is used for Sanskrit, Hindi, and over 120 languages, including Nepali.

Wow, that’s amazing, I’m literally getting chills. I also wanted to visit Kashmir… I’ve been to several places in 7 Indian states… I might never go to Mumbai and Goa… Calcutta was kinda on my list… I have like a dual citizenship by the way… I am basically Dutch… Also, my parents and grandparents were born in Suriname (former Dutch Guyana, South America) – so I can apply for like dual / triple citizenship there if I want to I believe. :slight_smile:

I failed to do any personal work this week… I only did my usual 8-5 job.
What did I learn? That it’s difficult to keep up with personal work and the 8-5 job.
I did learn a lot from reading on my commutes though.

I fail a lot! I tell my organization all the time “Fail Fast, Fail Cheap and Learn”. My man Napoleon Hill said it best:

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.

Does failure impact me? Sure, but I have to learn, get back up and keep executing; otherwise, I should just stay in bed all day. Failure is a part of learning how to win. Failure does not define my limitations, it shows me new opportunities and alternate paths!

One of my favorite quotes is ‘It is easier to act yourself into a new way of thinking, than it is to think yourself into a new way of acting.’
Often times we fall into our own heads and try to change our thinking before taking action when it woulld have been simpler to just act.

Cold calling! I’ve had thousands of phone conversations and constantly getting rejected has enabled me to build thick skin. It forced me to be concise and clear in my communication, and to ask all the right questions. Probably one of the most important skills I’ve ever learn in my life!

I’ve been starting to fail with my timeboxing lately, which has meant that I haven’t been able to get as much work done. That just means that I have to try harder and be more strict with how I plan my time, not giving up.

Learning how to fail without damaging your ego should be an early life lesson. Unfortunately something learned much later but something want to teach my child early. :pray:

I have failed at every thing I do. I’m 37 and all I really am is a parts delivery driver. I’ve got 3 AAS degrees in auto and auto management. I’m nataft certified and have ASE too. and all I am is a parts delivery driver o boy. tell me I haven’t fucked up my shit a lot. Now I’m struggling to get my business off the ground. my life of bad decisions slowed me down tremendously. but I’m fixing that slowly. I’m filling this hole I dug up. I’ve got goals now and nothing, I mean nothing is going to stop me now. I know 2 things I’m good at. classic cars and DCA into bitcoin. so I get the fuck up every day now telling my sell I will change today and make it better for tomorrow. no excuses. MY FUCK UPS END TODAY!!! I can fail but I can’t just keep fucking up.
