Soman Chainani, filmmaker and the New York time bestselling author (The school of good and evil) said make sure you have something to look forward to everyday.
Maybe it's your job, or basketball game after work, voice lesson, friends gathering or a date. Have something everyday that lights you up will keep your soul hungry to create more of these moments.
This week it has been raining cats and dogs but I still have something to look forward to everyday. I also deliberately try to exclude work. My work is fun anyway so it doesn't have to be included.

You get the ideas.
Time goes pass quickly. You create your own excitement.
This is the tedtalk by Tim Urban. Probably one of the most watched Tedtalk. I have watched it long time ago.
But I didn't know Tim Urban has a very popular blog called wait but why.
It's indeed a very fascinating blog.
I like some of the points he was focus on.
1. Write as if you are writing to a lot of people like you. Whatever you are interested, people like you will be interested. So i write my blog collecting information and thoughts that lots of Susie will like.
2. Focus on single kind of topic (I probably can't do that. I like all sorts of topics)
3. Focus inward on yourself . You will write the best and most original work. In other words not to write for large audience or please anybody. This i can do .
4. Learn to be a good story teller. There are many preachers but not enough story teller. Haha. Good one.
