There’s an English proverb that says “necessity is the mother of invention”. I believe it to be incredibly truthful. We often don’t give any attention to problems which not affect us, nor our friends and family. However, when we experience let’s say for example a disease or some family member is afflicted by it, we change abruptly.

Kenneth Shinozuka was just four years old when in a stroll with his grandfather, he happen to experience one of the scariest moments in his life, as he recalls. His grandfather simply got lost…

This was a presage that later the family confirmed. His grandfather had Alzheimer’s disease.

Over the course of time his condition got worse and not only that but he also started wandering often.

So how did Kenneth turn the necessity to guarantee the safety of his grandfather into an invention? Well, that’s what you’ll find out in this 5min video.

Life… for what is it worth?

Some days you just find yourself wavering in your purpose… Life…for what are you worth?

What do we seek for our lives? Is it money, love, friendship, recognition, improvement,…?
The definition of success and greatness varies from person to person. There aren’t absolute paths for everyone, each one of us has to make its own path. Some will prefer money, fame and stress. While others will prefer the joy of a modest lifestyle, with friendship, values and love. This haven’t to be divergent lifestyles, however, most of the times there are walls hindering the mixture between this two types of living.

If you are questioning what got me thinking in these deep matter, I will answer you. It was the video below.

For me the meaning of life is straightforward. You strive everyday for surpassing limitations, help everyone you can and try to change the world (sharing knowledge, ideas, and love).

  • 1st – Strive everyday for surpassing limitations

Whatever its fears, diseases or simply mindset, you have always room for improvement. Each day, you can go out of your comfort zone and modify your routine to do something new to help you surpassing those barriers you see.

  • 2ndHelp everyone you can

Compassion is a key to high self-esteem and personal joy. You help others and they will reward you. Maybe with their elation that is contagious, their gratitude or with other recompense.

  • 3rdTry to change the world

In life you have just two options, whether you accept how the world is structured or you fight for what you want it to become. If you have ideas who are worth fighting for, what are you waiting? Thoughts are the tools for the action we take, they aren’t merely a suggestion!

Good luck and don’t be afraid to make your own decisions, great leaders made them even when none believed in them (e.g. Steve Jobs).

University puts blogging on the back burner…

I love to find interesting stuff and share my ideas and what I’ve just discovered with everyone. However, I need to study for the university otherwise I won’t achieve academical success (which is my priority right now). For that reason I won’t be able to do posts everyday and I may just do them on the weekends.

What is changing…

“Week Theme!” is out! Every now and then I will do a detailed article on something I found interesting… “Daily Knowledge!” will stop being daily and become a “thrice a week knowledge”. I will use the twitter more often so be attentive to it!

Final note…

In spite of this changes I will continue fully committed to this project, I want to change the world. I want to choose the world on which I’m going to live. That world doesn’t need to be perfect but it has to be made of knowledge. A world where bigotry doesn’t exist. Where everybody has access to information and most importantly the means for understanding it. A world made by people who endeavour for becoming better everyday. In a world like this, religion wouldn’t reign our lives… Instead they would be ruled by our common sense of morals and ethics. I might be just a dreamer but if none dreamt the world would continue spinning and our lives would have no meaning whatsoever.

PERSUE YOUR DREAMS AND MAKE THEM TRUE! IMAGINE WHO YOU WANT TO BE AND START CHANGING WHO YOU ARE!
