Inspired by Augustus Waters’ line from the best-selling YA book “The Fault In Our Stars” (which is now a major movie hit).

My mind is bursting with random ideas mushrooming from the depths of my brain; they’re like bacteria, multiplying their selves over time. If I can sell and trade these notions I believe I can be rich by now. But I can’t, that’s why I work.

There are a lot of things going on inside my head right now. Questions such as: “What’s the next book I should read?”, “What blog entries and blog series should I start and write?”, “What movies should I watch and TV series I should start?”, “How to make my hard-earned money work for me?”, “What things should I do to contribute in making this world a better place to live in?”, “How will I get that promotion?”, the list goes on. It’s ironic how countless my ideas are but only a few of it made its way into the materialization process; it has always been on the conceptualization part.

So how can I start turning these untapped ideas into concrete outputs? It’s easy, MULTITASK! No, I take that back, it only starts when we start it. Once we started it and continued their respective processes until its fruition, that is when MULTITASKING kicks in. Now we’re talking!

After starting the tasks I have been wanting to do, the inevitable questions eventually popped out: “How will I ever finish these and How will it be possible to simultaneously work on different tasks?” So at this point we bring MULTITASKING in the picture.

Let’s go back to the quote I used earlier:

“My thoughts are like stars I can’t fathom into constellations.”

Think of the stars as your tasks and the constellations their respective outputs. With multitasking I can organize as many stars as I can and accomplish a desirable amount of constellations afterwards. Most especially I can now see the results right before my very eyes (twinkle twinkle!).

Getting a job done is fulfilling. But finishing two or more tasks at the same time is incredibly rewarding. That is why I have always been a firm believer of Multitasking. I do it most of the time, when I am at home and during work days. 

I'd like to think that I’m good at multitasking and that my outputs are not compromised by the number of tasks I juggle daily; It’s a bit difficult but nonetheless possible. But if I were to choose between the following skills to unlock:

a. Type faster and flawlessly.
b. Never forget any detail.
c. Create awesome presentation decks.
d. Multitask at any given time.

I would still choose d. Multitask at any given time. I mean who would not like that? Yes, multitasking is already a feat, but being able to do it at any given time? Even better!

To multitask means you have to have impeccable time management skills and of course your mental focus is put to test here so that also counts. And to have the ability to multitask without the slightest mental conditioning - that is gold. In all honesty, Multitasking can achieve the remaining choices listed above. While you’re creating the awesomest presentation decks, you can search the internet about tips on how to type faster and flawlessly. You can also add to your research list ways on improving your focus on details and also your memory. See? It’s like hitting three birds with one stone!

Which brings us to this:

Did you know that taking a KIT KAT Break can unlock hidden skills in you that make it seem like you can break the impossible?

Yes, that is right! One important aspect in multitasking is switching between tasks. Unfortunately studies have shown that when done inappropriately it leads to slowing down of progress because the brain takes time in mentally focusing on the new task. That is why it is recommended that multitask addicts take breaks in between chores. And how to enjoy these breaks? This is achieved by having that sugar rush you need to continue being productive not only during work hours but also at the end of the day. Taking KIT KAT breaks will also boost your creativity and help you focus more on the task at hand. It will also push you to your limits. That means breaking the impossible and unlocking the skills you thought you can never possess. So take the KIT KAT break you truly deserve! You can thank me later.

Believe in the BREAK! Join the BREAK Movement!

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
