everyone needs some cheesy self-help from time to time

i caught up on quite a bit of my readings while i was back in sg. still wish i could have read more and wider, but there's only so much my little brain can take at a time. my reading diet also involved a little bit of self-help -- strangely i'm no longer as averse to self-help as i was as a teen, haha -- given my half-baked plans right before i left hk for the cny hols. here's an article i found quite insightful, though i really wasn't expecting much from its headline.

frankly, i'm not fond of the word "success" -- the definition of success differs from person to person and its societal definition is what has irked me from time to time and caused me a lot of cognitive dissonance over the years. but some bits of these "35 things" stood out for me. hopefully bearing in mind and applying some of these will help make me a better, calmer, more disciplined, less gripeful and generally happier being.
