We all seek happiness but what most of us discover is that happiness is a home-made product. If you have strong and effective relationship with family members - whether living together or apart - the resultant good vibes and mental solace tend to overflow into all other aspects of life. When your family is heading in the right direction, you are better able to perform and focus at work. On the other hand, if things aren't going well at home, it is difficult to be deeply happy anywhere else. Thus, it is supremely important that at home, with your family, you concentrate on creating a beautiful family culture. Regardless of whether we live in the US, India or anywhere else, family is the building block of any society, and our greatest fulfillment lies there. Of course, one needs to give due importance to work. But if any society works diligently in every other area but neglects the family, it would be the same as straightening deck chairs on the Titanic.

The power to make a difference in your family lies within you. The place to begin is not with other family members, but with you. You have the freedom to choose your actions and you have four unique endowments to guide your responses to people, situations and your environment.

How Much Faster Can You Learn?

Say you were to optimize everything you possibly could for a particular learning goal. You used the best time-management system, you picked exactly the right tasks that would drive learning improvement, you applied tremendous motivation and effort. How much faster could you learn something than the status quo would expect? The answer, of course, will be: it depends. But that's rather unsatisfying, if true, because the crucial question is: what does it depend on?
