Watch this space!

This space was created as a platform for something greater what that is I don't really know as yet. All I know is that this space should be watched. Many times in life we leave a space open and never really use the time and space properly. So i'm probably going to do the same this time although i've already used this space to try to improve my writing skills.

This space is a space where I will remember my university life and all the joys and aggrevations that went with it.

Why I have conversations

The reason people have conversations is to be heard. We all love sharing our opinion on certain issues and we love to show where we stand regarding them and why we believe that we are right and all the others are wrong. However others can argue that we there are many other reasons such as socializing and interactions and so forth. I believe that conversations are simply platforms to verbalise our thoughts and then to check the responses out!

My big fat dream!

Is to one day own my very own gaming studio. We games are distributed all across the globe. My games should establish and build a cultural phenomenon in society. I want to make games that bring joy to people as well as keeping them constantly entertained. Escapism is the key, forget about the stresses of modern life and be part of my world where you make the rules in the game and you chose how you want to live your life. Although this is only a dream and that's all it will ever be for now!

Conventional is a good fallback position isn't it?

Yes conventional is a good fallback position but at what cost, if it's creativity then forget it. Creativity is the life force of our individuality and if we rely on just being normal then we loose some of who we are in order to just do something with no real effort.

Although many of us choose this route of falling back on convention, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's the right route for development and growth in society. Let me know what you think.

You cannot chase two rabbits at the same time

Of course you can chase two rabbits at the same time however your chances of actually catching them are very slim. The aim is to strategize on what needs to be done first. Don't focus on two things just to realize that the outcome you hoping to achieve will be even harder to get because you overlooked a minor detail. By focusing on one rabbit (goal) the chances of actually achieving it is far greater. So go for the easy route in this case and chase one rabbit!

Nothing is more dangerous than an idea, when you only have one idea.

I don't understand why one idea can be so dangerous. If it's a really good one it can work. Some of the greatest businesses were founded on this one idea principles and although the business evolves and their ideas change always remember that the business started and focused on one idea and so I conclude by disagreeing with the title of this blog and instead agree that one idea is the best place to start.

Have you figured out the second head fake?

In turns of soccer the head fake is a feint used to adjust the footing or position of an opponent. The player pretends to commit in one direction only to change his mind and go the complete opposite way. The second head fake is just a way of learning from your mistake. In soccer terms if the same player should try a head fake again the opposition will be made aware, because at the back of his mind he's expecting it this time. So always be alert in life and look out for those trying to pull a second head fake on you. Get your guard up!
