Me and Minimalism

Lately, I’ve been obsessing over the concept of minimalism.The idea of eliminating life’s excesses and being happier just appealed me. I didn’t know that owning less stuff may lead to a happier life. But this concept changed my mind. It also changed me for the better.

My First Job Seeking Experience: Unilever, Pt. 2

As promised, here is the second part of the story of my first job seeking experience. In the last post, I have told you that I applied for Unilever Future Leaders Program (UFLP).

I think I belong to those 92% of failed people. In fact, can’t even remember what my new year’s resolutions were, even though I wrote them here in this blog.

Instead of doing resolutions I cannot keep, I am going to do an Epic Quest instead. This idea is built upon the idea of gamification of life. It is introduced by Steve Kamb of NerdFitness.com in his book Level Up Your Life.
