Live your life impressing yourself

I was consistent for more than 60 days. I would write first thing in the morning and it felt great finishing a piece which started out of nothing. Then I read that to be a good writer, you have to focus on quality not quantity; it didn’t resonate or sound right with me. Close peopleContinue reading “Live your life impressing yourself”

Sometimes failure, is just failure.

Yesterday I couldn’t find anyone to surround myself and have a nice conversation with, so I tuned in to an episode of Silicon Valley, E1 S3. Gavin Belson, Ceo of Hooli, made a statement which influenced me to write about in today’s post. He approached the podium, placed his arms, elbows straight, on the edge,Continue reading “Sometimes failure, is just failure.”

Don’t let the unexpected ruin your expected.

I have been following the direction of the wind of life since the beginning of time. I listened to my parents and went to school where I studied hard and got top grades. Then I joined what they have always mentioned “The best university in the region aka The American University” I failed the englishContinue reading “Don’t let the unexpected ruin your expected.”

You can not control change, you can only embrace it. 

A good friend of mine just got divorced a week ago. He called me in shock and said “I didn’t see this coming, as if she snapped her fingers out of loving me.

Approaching my 35th, one thing I learned, It doesn’t really matter after all.

I just noticed that I have less hair on my left thumb than on my right, the ratio is 6:10 to be exact. A few years ago I also noticed that my right leg is a cm or two longer. Also my right ear seems to be poking out more than the left. What’s thatContinue reading “Approaching my 35th, one thing I learned, It doesn’t really matter after all.”

Getting lots of money will not make you rich, passions will. 

10 years ago my Dad advised me to buy a house. Since my childhood I developed a spending habit that I would never put all my sweat from work in a materialistic need. My Dad’s words at the time were of a deeper impact than my outlook on the future: “Sherif, you must buy aContinue reading “Getting lots of money will not make you rich, passions will. “

It’s 8:48 am Egypt time; I am here ☝️  Both my ears hurt really bad with the left one semi deaf from pool swimming. The surrounding world is still asleep hence my favorite time of the day.

I am falling in love with my mistakes. 

I am not sure whether I should be calling them mistakes, failures, setbacks, obstacles, hiccups, challenges or wrong doings.  But I can tell you my aspiring cheerful reader that the more mistakes I do the more I look back and laugh at myself.  I feel honored with all the mistakes medals and championships I collectedContinue reading “I am falling in love with my mistakes. “

Final Score: Life 2, Sherif 0. 

The winner is life, for the time being. She beat me to the ground and defeated me yesterday when she took not only my love from me, but also my passports and laptop. On the train, my backpack got stolen by a professional thief. I was traveling to Alexandria to take a flight to ItalyContinue reading “Final Score: Life 2, Sherif 0. “
