  1. I am coping with severe breathing,but I do not rely on convential medicines,I do lot of meditation in other words relaxation.i have slowed down my breathing and undergoing condition is very bad but I know. I will overcome.thank you for the post it really helps.

  2. Wonderful post. Enjoyed it very much. Thank you! A tangential thought – I haven’t read much by Nietzsche but I wonder why he thought there cannot be an abstract meaning to life and a specific mission for an individual. Are those antithetical ideas?

    • Thanks, Vivek. I don’t know what he means by abstract in this context. My guess is that it is harder to come up with a plan and measure progress for abstract things.

  3. Thanks Jana for this post. It is really helpful and thoughtful. I observed that , these kind of posts really refreshes us and keep going in our most coveted endeavors. Fantastic……

  4. Wow!!So well written.
    Here is the question-
    So for every new goal there will be a new S curve, a new struggling and a spike in happiness. Once you accomplish many goals (assuming you do-and you fail less, that’s why masters praise failures I guess) aren’t goals themselves become part of S curve and stop generating S curves?
    So do I aim to be in that spike zone more often or change my thinking model and get to comfort zone knowing this is expected?
