BOOK REVIEW: Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg

I am a strong believer in effective communication skills which are vital for success. One thing I can assure you from my experience is that loud, bitter and violent communication never leads to fulfilment.

He takes the reader through all the intricacies of working on what to say and how to say it so that one’s words lead to peace, not bitterness or violence. Another aspect of the book is that it also speaks to the essential need for developing compassionate communication with one self.

“Long-term travel isn’t about being a college student; it’s about being a student of daily life. Long-term travel isn’t an act of rebellion against society; it’s an act of common sense within society. Long-term travel doesn’t require a massive “bundle of cash”; it requires only that we walk through the world in a more deliberate way.”

Rolf Potts travelled more than 60 countries across six continents. He is the author of Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel, a book that fascinated me a for long time before I decided to finally give it a read. All that excitement was worth.

Boost Your Blogging Confidence and Write that Post

Lack of confidence is one of the reason why bloggers don’t publish their posts. Especially, in this age of information overload, we tend to gather much information without much effort about the needed topic or content interesting to us but due to lack of confidence your best post has never been published yet. We all struggle with the confidence at times when it comes to hitting the publish button. I have been blogging for more than four years and I battle the same force of struggle as you do, to feel confident. I have my doubt and worries similar to yours.

On Becoming a Morning Reader

Source: twitter

I often think about becoming a morning person. I have tried getting up early, having a cuppa of coffee (caffeine has its wonders), do my stuff. But that did not work out very well. I end up being drowsy all the time, yawning unnecessarily, and not able to do what I intend to do. Thus I have decided to, instead of trying to become a morning person, let’s give a shot to become a morning reader.

Ground rules for being a morning reader are the same as of being a morning person:
