Writing a blog every day means at the end of the year, it comes down to 365 days and 365 blogs… And amongst all of those blogs, writing about life, mindset, self-improvement, point-of-view of looking at certain things, every now and then, a particular blog stands out from the rest. Through this post, I want to highlight a few of those
So, here are my top 10 blogs of 2021 –
1. The Hypocrisy of Free Content
With the internet at its current stage and with all of us having smartphones in our hands, at every moment of time, there is a ton of content available to us, just about everywhere.
But, our hypocrisy with free content is, we want free, but we don’t value free.
2. Filling the Silence (Part 1) and Embracing the Silence (Part 2)
Part 1: In order to escape the mind, we fill the silence with – talking (more than usual) – music (contextual), and/or consuming content in general – activities that you don’t want to do (or anything else that one might do to fill their silence) Why do we do it though?
Read Part 1 here.
Part 2: Having spoken about escaping silence and running away from it… What can one do to embrace that silence? That golden silence is going to unlock so many things in your life, that you didn’t want to face but now you want to… How do you embrace it now?

3. The Accountability Exercise
Humans blame. We all do. For the tiniest of things. Everything that doesn’t turn out the way we fantasized about, the blame of that goes to someone, another individual, a group of individuals, a corporation, a government, a country, religion, or something else.

4. Are you buying it for yourself?
How often do you buy something? How often do you post about it on social media? Oh, you aren’t active there? How often do you tell your friends about what you bought?
We have this feeling that we really want something, then we buy it, then we’ll share it everywhere, and more often than not, the happiness of telling everyone about it takes over the happiness of having that thing.

5. The intersection of your and others’ time
In the midst of that time management, there comes a time or many, when your time is intersected with others and their time with yours. Two scenarios, either you want their time or they want your time.
But, understanding this intersection is crucial. Because each person’s time is important.

6. Your best thinking happens when you’re not thinking
How often are you on a deadline or think of this, you have scheduled a slot in your day when you will ideate on that project or that new idea or the next thing you wanted to write about, but just during those moments, you have hit the block and you feel like your brain has stopped working?
7. 5 Questions to ask yourself at the end of the day
Every day brings with it its own set of thoughts, emotions, opportunities, ideas, problems, and much more. Every day can be the same and every day can be different, depending upon your approach.
How can you then know how did your day go? How can you evaluate each day?

8. Creating a system around your day
When you think deeper on it, usually the routine involves one particular habit, followed by another, and another. That chain of habits, which might include waking up and then working out, having your breakfast, getting on with your work, with a break in the middle, having a cup of tea in the evening, and so on, are linked to one another.
But we are all humans, not robots.

9. What the optimum scenario should be like?
As the process begins, you never know what’s going to happen, how much is in your control, and how much you’d have to adapt. That means, in reality, the outcome could go from the best possible scenario to the worst possible scenario.
10. DYOR, the new acronym we should headline
“I saw this person buy ‘x,’ so I bought it too.”
“I heard from person D that ‘y’ is the next big thing to look out for”
“Topic ‘Z’ keeps trending from time to time, so maybe it’s what I should get into”
In order to “save time”, people nowadays jump the line and just follow/ do what someone else is doing.
