My Quotes

My Quotes
These are kind of quotes, which come to my mind with the passage of time. These are originally by me (of course the idea can be same as described by many).

“Always be natural as you are a part of Nature; that’s why more you deviate from nature more you create problems and complexities for yourself and ultimately get hurt”.

“Don’t stray from Nature or you will be lost in the deep ocean of darkness”.

“Be yourself; don’t pretend to be someone else, because if you pretend so you’ll never be satisfied”.

“I am Me, I am unique; I am the one who can’t be someone else and I am the one someone else can’t be”.

“Act on what you know and know what you don’t know”.

Still more to come with the passage of time. I do love poetry but I know more of it in Urdu rather than English. Maybe I have to read English poems (I did read in school but don't remember it anymore).

These were 86 points to describe me, these points are a result of brainstorming.

Atif's Brainstorming

Yesterday, I was trying to brainstorm and see how Brainstorming helps us to come up with ideas and plan ahead. And, that's what Brainstorming yielded into:
  • A little Thought comes to mind and then leads a human to a process.
  • A Process starts and spans in human mind in a cyclic manner.
  • Imagination and Intuition starts Brainstorming (Thinking Process starts).
  • Questions come to mind (What, Why, Where, When, and How?).
  • Questions lead to Curiosity.
  • Curiosity leads to Search.
  • Search for Answers, which lead to knowledge.
  • First get little knowledge but prominent and authentic.
  • Then, act on what I know and know what I don’t know.
  • Knowledge leads to Wisdom.
  • Wisdom makes us human and makes us stand out from other creatures (also from other human).
  • Search leads to clear answers, with the help of knowledge and wisdom.
  • Clear Answers lead to productive Intentions and clear Plans.
  • Curiosity, Knowledge, Wisdom with good Intentions and clear set of Plans show you a Right Path.
  • Right Path leads to a Destination.
  • But what is a Destination?
  • There are many destinations when you embark on a journey; these are little destinations which lie on the way.
  • These little destinations lead to an Ultimate Supreme Destination.
  • But what is an “Ultimate Supreme Destination”?
 Wow! that's amazing to see what Brainstorming lead to. I could never come up with all of the above points if I had not done Brainstorming. And, now I know how much does it help and I am going to brainstorm from now on no matter what task I have to do. Brainstorming does help us to come up with innovative and amazing ideas and help us to plan ahead.

I am still in process of Brainstorming and I yet have to come up with the answer to the last Bullet Point. I'll post whenever I'll have time and also I have to write about what happens when you reach you Ultimate Destination and how does it affect a person.
Cheers and happy Brainstorming!
