Overcome microwave mentality

A life coach shares one of her personal experiences and ways to overcome it.
I recall one day standing by my microwave and thinking to myself, “Man, this sure is taking a long time!” As soon as those words entered my mind, I realized that I had been conditioned by instant-gratification ideology. I was no longer patient. I wanted instant results—results so quickly that I considered the microwave as taking too much time. This was an eye-opener for me. In order to have anything of lasting value it must be started on a strong footing. The groundwork may take time, yet it's essential for quality to be prevalent. We need to realign our thinking. Pursue your goals and dreams with a desire for quality, regardless of the time and effort it takes. After all, anything worth doing is worth doing right.

Partitions divide countries, friendships find a way

A wonderful story from Google showing how human passion and hope can overcome time and borders.

In this story, a woman in India reunites her grandfather with his childhood friend (now in Pakistan) following six decades of separation with a little help from Google. Whether you're in Pakistan or India or simply have a soft spot in your heart for stories of reunited friends. Well, then watch this. This is a reflection of the many stories of reunion. If you find it moving, do share it.


We are all incredibly fortunate to be living in today's world where technology is helping us become more human.
