Are we in our senses when we talk of betterlife?

People live in a society. They have to move out of their house to go to office or on business, to meet their relatives & friends, to take part in social functions, in short to do this and that. For this they depend on the transport system. Some have their own transports. Some depend on public transport. It is natural for the people to expect a reliable, comfortable and safe public transport system. It is a part of their betterlife. But do they get it?

The answer is a very big NO. Delhi does not have a reliable, comfortable and safe public transport system. Blue line buses granted license by Delhi Govt provide a transport system totally opposite to what people need. It is not reliable, it is not comfortable, it is not safe. Rather these buses are licensed monsters killing innocent people when they run on roads. In this year 2007, 98 people have so far been killed by these monsters. With no human feelings in bus owners, bus drivers, transport minister and chief minister of Delhi, it will kill more people till this year ends. Next person to be killed may be me, you or anyone (exempted are politicians).

See some of the headlines:
Blueline mayhem continues: two more killed
Blueline bus strikes again, kills cyclist
Delhi HC anguished over Blueline bus accident
Blueline bus kills 5 in Sarita Vihar
Blueline buses: Licensed to kill, as Delhi CM hems and haws

Delhi CM is still there. Her transport minister is still there. Bus owners and drivers are still there. But unfortunate loved ones of many families are not there. No body is bothered about their loss. PM Manmohan is not loosing his sleep. He and Sonia Gandhi are expressing concern with Bhutto in Pakistan on the loss of lives in the blast.

This Govt is not capable to give betterlife to people. Let us stop wasting time on these unworthy humans. People should get together and create betterlife for each other. May God protect the common citizens of Delhi.

10 betterlife tips

I may warn you first. There is nothing new in these tips. You might be aware and might be trying to adopt them. Recently, I received a mail from gurlzgroup which included these tips. I liked the presentation. I thought, let me share the tips with other bloggers.

While I myself do not always end up managing to put each of the following tips into practice, I do make a big effort to do so each day. This is a list of many peoples' favorite tips to improving their life. All it takes is a little bit each day and you will see wondrous changes.

10. Get off to a Good Start

Betterlife Happenings

This means getting up early and eating breakfast. You will have much more energy throughout the day to follow the rest of these tips if you do! If you are so inclined, you can even include a little exercise in your morning routine. If you live with other people you can try to use this opportunity to get everyone together at the table to eat in the mornings. This is a nice way to start the day and a good way to ensure open lines of communication in a very busy household.

9. Keep a Schedule

Betterlife Happenings

It is a very good idea to write down the tasks you need to achieve in each day. As you complete them, tick them off. You should not, however, feel like you are bound to your list. If you don’t manage to do everything, it doesn’t matter - move any incomplete tasks from today on to tomorrow’s list. This is also a great help if you are a procrastinator.

8. Take a Break and have Fun

Betterlife Happenings

If you spend too much time in front of the computer, at your desk, or doing whatever it is that your occupation requires, you should take a break. This doesn’t mean you have to take time off work - it just means you should try to make better use of your non-work time to do something fun. I always have difficulty pulling myself away from the computer and as a result I don’t go out as often as I should on the weekend or in the evening. But every time I do - I wonder why I haven’t done it sooner. This is a good way to develop new interests, and friends and to break up the monotony of everyday life.

7. Be Generous

Betterlife Happenings

Generosity has a tendency to come back. By generosity I am not referring only to money. You can be generous with your smiles, your advice, and many other things. Always try to find a way to help others. One day you may be in great need and people you know will be more likely to come to your aid when they know that you would do the same for them. You might know someone that could use help around the home from time to time - not only are you doing a good thing by helping them out, but you may also make a great new friend.

6. Accept the things you can’t Change

Betterlife Happenings

When something bad happens in our lives, we try to fix them or change them. But sometimes we can’t. Often this leads us to spend hours moping and falling in to depression. If you can make yourself accept the things you cannot change - you will become a much happier person. Acceptance of these situations also allows us to start finding a way to cope much faster. For example, you may realize that you have only $10 left in your bank account that has to last the next 2 weeks. Instead of getting down about it, accept that you have no money and work out a way to survive on that amount. You can save yourself from wasting hours in a bad mood by just getting on with life. You will find much more serenity in life following this tip.

5. Learn a New Language

Betterlife Happenings

Learning another language is one of the best ways to improve your grasp on English. In my own experience, learning French at high school taught me so much more about grammar than English class ever did. In addition, when I later started studying Ancient Greek, I learnt a lot about the roots of English words - something I have found very useful in writing in the years since. As well as improving your knowledge of English, if you learn a living language you increase the number of places you might like to visit - or make those holidays much more enjoyable by being able to speak to the natives in their own tongue.

4. Break the Chain

Betterlife Happenings

If you have a lot of patterns in your life, try breaking them - do something different every day. Let’s say you always order the same meal at your regular Friday night restaurant. Why not try something else this Friday? Not only do you get to broaden your experiences of life, you open up many doors for the future. Not long ago I would never eat oriental foods or seafood. Then one day I decided that I would just try it. Seafood is now one of my favorite foods and I would hate to be without it. Because I discovered that I love Thai and Chinese food, I can eat in any restaurant I want. That first step also meant that I am now willing to try absolutely any food. My disliking for those foods had a much greater impact as well - I would only holiday in countries that had foods I felt safe with. Since then I have been to Oriental countries and loved it.

3. Face the Fear

Betterlife Happenings

Every day you should do something you don’t want to do - or feel uncomfortable doing. This varies in degrees for everyone, but we all have little things we can start out with. For example, you may not go to the gym because you fear everyone looking at you - do it anyway! In no time you will be so much more confident that you abolish the fear entirely and can move on to the next fear - maybe even something bigger. Living a fearless life gives you a confidence that is visible to others. Instead of building walls around ourselves, we should be tearing them down.

2. Forget Goals - Live for the Now

Betterlife Happenings

Lists of this nature almost always tell you to set and write goals. I am going to tell you the opposite. A very wise psychotherapist once told me that if you set a goal, and achieve it, you are often left with an empty feeling because the goal is not what you thought it would be. Not only does it not satisfy, you inevitably end up missing out on so much life by striving to reach something in the future. Having said this, I don’t think you should ignore the future - it is worth having some idea of what you might like to one day achieve - but don’t focus all of your energy on getting it. A good example of the difference is this: I have a goal to live in France. I spend 10 years trying to save up all my money so I can acheive that goal. In the meantime I am so busy scrimping and saving, that I can’t afford to go out with friends, I can’t afford to live in a nice home, and I am miserable because I am not living in France. On the other hand, if I simply decide that one day I would like to live in France, the idea is in my mind, but I continue to live and enjoy my life. In living my life, I am happy now and not focused on a distant goal. If it happens, great. If it doesn’t happen, I haven’t failed at anything. But who knows what wonderful things may happen in my life in the meantime? A very good fictitious example of this can be found in the film American Beauty.Betterlife Happenings

1. Don’t Procrastinate

Betterlife Happenings

This is one I struggle with a lot in my own life. This has been a great challenge for me as I work from home, but taking this job has really helped me to stop putting things off and take control of my life. The feeling after completing a task you would normally put off is a great high - and certainly a much healthier one than some of the other highs in our lives. When you put something off, you are putting yourself into time-debt. You have to pay that debt back and almost always you end up having to do that at the most inconvenient time. By putting off writing an article for the site, for example, I end up having to write one at 7 at night when I would rather be watching a movie and having a drink! Your life will become so much more organized if you follow this rule.

Meal cooked by an angry wife

Have you ever thought, how many meals your mother or wife has cooked for you? No, perhaps you thought that why waste time thinking about it, as cooking meals is their job? I have thought about it, and I am grateful to them for it. Cooking nice and tasty meals for me is one great favour they have done to me. In summers I can not stand in the kitchen even for few minutes, but they continuously work their for hours. When we are watching our favourite movie, they go in the kitchen to prepare tea/coffee for me and in the process miss few good scenes, but never complain about it. They like a dish prepared in a particular manner but gladly prepare it the other way as I like it. Say few good words about the meals and the entire house will be filled with their joy. God has been very kind to us males by blessing our lives with the mother and wife.

You will be surprised as to why I am talking about it. Today I received a mail from gurlzgroup containing a photo with the caption - 'Meal cooked by an angry wife'.

Betterlife Happenings

It started a thought process, and this blogpost is the result. It is not that I did not like the picture. I enjoyed it. I also felt lucky that my wife had never cooked such a meal for me. Me and my wife are having a positive relationship and never get angry with each other.

What about you guys?

I collect tips and quotes for betterlife

Many opeople collect many things. I collect tips and quotes. These tips and quotes motivate us to create a betterlife for us and others. I have subscribed to many sites to receive these tips and quotes in my mail or on my blog. Then I share these tips and quotes with others. Here are some.

Betterlife Tips -

"Reflect on your good qualities. First, start with what you do well. Are you a good friend and mother? Remember on how you affect others in your life. Remember in every detail the good acts you've done. Recall a time when you were instrumental in making someone else happy. Allow yourself to feel grateful for yourself. Allow this gratitude to grow in your heart." - Jorge Cruise

"Whenever you're being verbally assaulted, attacked, and accused, your goal must be to command respect because Tanks simply don't attack people they respect. Aggressive people require assertive responses. Your behavior must send a clear signal that you are strong and capable, since anything less is an invitation for further attacks. However, you must send this signal without becoming a Tank yourself."
- Dr. Rick Brinkman & Dr. Rick Kirschner

"We are what we eat. When we are under stress, we tend to fill ourselves with convenience food, which can be synonymous with 'junk.' Eating well must be part of any serious program to reduce stress levels. Make a start by minimizing bad habits. Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper."
- Tim Handle

Quote of the Day

The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do.

B. F. Skinner

And a poem by Nick Gordon

"Jocelyn is more than meets the eye.
On her, of course, all male eyes are glued.
Clarity and wit are on a mission,
Engaged to amplify her erudition,
Lest students wonder whether, what, or why.
Young enough to know how youth is wooed,
Nor strict nor lax, she sets her own sights high."
