2/21 (Tue.) What's on your mind? (host: Ken)

Session 1:

Q1. Why do people keep comparing themselves with others?
Q2. Have you ever felt jealous of your friends on Facebook?
Q3. Do people show off on Facebook? If yes, why?
Q4. Facebook can be depressing because sometimes your friends' lives seem better than yours... but are they really doing better than you?
Q5. Is vanity good or bad ? How to get rid of it?

Session 2:
http://www.businessinsider.com/delayed-gratification-is-key-to-success-2014-1

1.Are you future-focused or present-focused? Do you save for a rainy day or enjoy the present?
2. Do you resist the temptation for an immediate reward in order to achieve a long-term goal? For example, you quit unhealthy food to stay in shape. You consume less to save more.
3.. Everything in life has an opportunity cost. If you want to go to the movies with friends it means you can't stay home and read a good book. In other words, you win some and lose some. What do you value the most in your life, career, health, family, love or friendship? How do you prioritise them?
4. If you were granted a wish in exchange for ten years of your life span, what would it be?

Yeah, life and choices! my favorite topic. Time to rethink about my lousy life, again. :lol:

Googled some quotations:
1. My life, my choice; My mistake, my lesson-- Not your business
2. Every good thing that has happened in your life happened because something changed.
3. We are our choices.-- Sartre.
4. Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
My favorite one is this: "You are a ghost driving a meat covered skeleton made from stardust riding a rock floating through space. Fear nothing." Many thanks to Hans.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.

I enjoy the first topic as well.
Thanks to those social media, no matter the present or past time.
By natural, Ppl are eager to be seen.
However, they want the privacy at the mean time.
When in a downturn, this guy hungers for caring and support the most but dare not fight the demon of being look down.
Comparing with the past, without this guy seeking support process, things shall be a little bit simpler.
Life is full of more choices now.

Ken always brings his insight into the topics he selected and discussion conclusions he made in the meeting.
The two topics in this meeting can actually be linked by one thing, self-control or discipline. If you are content, you are less likely to be "bothered" by other's "showing off" on FB, and you won't spend whole lot of time in envying others or doing self-pity. And if you are content, self-controlled and disciplined, you will be more likely delaying gratification and enjoy a better financial stability in the later days.
