How to Evolve Exponentially

When I was 16 and taking a gap year because I was sick of the banality of academia, and nowhere near ready mentally to take on a degree course, I took whatever job I could find.

That job was driving forklifts, lugging bags of concrete and cutting timber to size for builders. Everyone at my work hated their job. It was a place that “dreams go to die”, as I was advised by a colleague when I first started working there. I was apparently making a huge mistake.

7 Reasons I am Done With Politics

If you’ve been following TruthInjected for the past year or so, you will notice that I have regularly written about ideologies and social issues.

I’ll be honest, I really enjoyed it. Robust debate about why we are how we are, and what is right or wrong, has really made me think a lot about my own world view.

But politics is the worst, and I am sick of even talking about it.

The Death of Obligation and the Birth of Purpose

No man is an island. It’s a commonly accepted truth that we all need human interaction in order to be fulfilled, but I have a confession. I avoid social occasions where I can.

I’m not an agoraphobic hermit, and I do enjoy spending time with my partner, wider family and a few close friends. You could say that I am more of a peninsula than an island, but I have never understood how people enjoy work Christmas functions or weddings.

The Way of the Monk and the Millionaire

There couldn’t be two more opposite characters to juxtapose.

You have the calm, serenity of Gautama Buddha, who would meditate peacefully under a waterfall in the knowledge that all things are one. With Donald Trump, you have a bombastic, egotistical, billionaire turned politician who is rioted against when he is elected president.

But their qualities aren’t mutually exclusive. That’s right – in this post, I am going to explain why you should enjoy the best of both mindsets.

How to Pretend Your Way To Success

It was a crisp autumn morning and I was walking to my client’s building up in the nicer end of the city to begin my first day of the job that I had studied to do for the previous three years.

I had done some menial labour for the last few months with the company that employed me, but a talent void was created within the company when one of the client technicians resigned, and I got pulled into that void.

Well, that’s the end of 2016.

I have seen the articles and Facebook posts lamenting the past twelve months as a year best forgotten and the collective sighs of relief from the majority have been almost palpable, although of course this is a subjective perspective.

Personally, I think it has been a wonderful year.

Hi everyone, my name is Tim and I am an addict.

(insert “Hello, Tim” in a monotonous, droning chorus)

It has been 2 months since I smoked my last cigarette.

That’s right. The expensive, health-sapping habit that I followed for 7 years is no more. I’d like to share what led to me quitting, and how this can be applied to quitting ANY habit.
