The 7 stages of grieving a breakup

If you are feeling hurt and hopeless, you should know that breakups are incredibly common. In fact, nearly 50% of U.S. marriages culminate in divorce. That’s just one example of how difficult it can be to keep two people together. But regardless of the data, we understand what you’re going through, and we want to help you. Learn about the seven stages of grieving a breakup!

Breakups happen, most of the time, for the better

People can get so consumed with their relationships, and you could hold on to it so tightly that the mere thought of its ending could make you lose your mind. When dealing with breakups, our emotional responses differ on an individual basis, but most of us experience pain, withdrawal, and loss. That is such a brutal process that it takes us a long time to recover. 

Fortunately, breakups often happen for the greater good.

Tips for Those Who Are Bicurious Guys

It’s no secret that some people don’t feel comfortable with conventional sexualities. In most cases, these categories that society applies to them can’t fully explain who they are as human beings. Unfortunately, this is what happens with men and women who consider themselves to be bi-curious.

And in an overtly confusing world that we live in, these people can’t figure out how to go on about their desires and fantasies. Nevertheless, we’re willing to talk about guys who’d like to explore additional possibilities outside their traditional heterosexual relationships. Moreover, our article aims to provide dating tips for bisexuals and those who feel like they might be interested in both genders.

What Does Bicurious Mean?

Ever since the early ’90s, people began to identify themselves as bicurious. And although the term appears in Merriam-Webster dictionaries from the ’80s, most folks still don’t know what it means. But hey! There’s a time

Why Do You Need a Bucket List?

It’s not uncommon to think about leaving this world one day. You don’t have to be morbid or a downer. It’s in our nature to question our mortality. One day, we’ll all go, no matter how healthily we live our lives. But it’s not a reason to look at life as a ticking clock. You should enjoy it as much as it’s possible.

After all, what’s life about if not exploring and experiencing different things? Even if it’s sad and harsh sometimes, there’s plenty of room for the good stuff we all crave for. We set all kinds of big goals for our future when we’re young and full of hope. Unfortunately, not many succeed in making these dreams a reality.

As you know by now, we can’t control future events, and our lives have a nasty habit of turning into nightmares. For example, people find they’re gravely ill and …

Your 4 Step Guide To Taking Action

Execution is one of the most valuable skills in the world.
It’s the difference between getting that promotion you always wanted or staying at the same position. It’s the difference between having a positive life changing experience or living a lifetime of regret. It’s the difference between building the life you’ve always wanted or keeping the status quo.

“Ideas are just a multiplier of execution”
— Derek Sivers, Anything You Want

Unfortunately, a lot of people have trouble executing on their ideas.
Some spend weeks stuck in the planning phase, fantasizing about “what could be” but never actually make any progress. Overplanning often results in projects ending up in their graveyard of ideas.

Others may whip up what they believe to be a great idea and begin executing immediately. These projects usually end up the same way — in the graveyard. Without enough planning, people tend to get lost in …

Creating an Action Plan for Your Goal

We all know people who pat themselves on the back for their spontaneous approach to life. (I once overheard somebody say they never wanted to own more stuff than could fit in their car.)

They seem to think that creating an action plan for just about anything would take all the fun out of life.

But we’ve also all heard that people who fail to plan are planning to fail.

I’ve found that people who are organized about what they’re trying to accomplish are much more successful—and have just as much fun—than those who aren’t.

I saw the proof decades ago when my boss at the time, famed Yankees pitcher Bullet Bob Turley, brought a teammate of his, “Fred,” into the company during the off season.

As a player, Fred was used to sleeping late and getting to the ballpark in the afternoon for training.

So every day at around …

Get Motivated By Learning the Importance of Taking Action

There’s an enduring axiom of success that says,“The Universe rewards action, not thought.” Yet as simple as this principle seems, it’s surprising how many people get bogged down in the analyzing, planning and organizing stages when what they really need to do is to simply take action.

“What we think or what we know or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.” – John Ruskin

When you take action, not only do additional resources come your way, but you get feedback that helps you adjust your course and refine your approach.

In my seminars, I conduct a very illustrative exercise. I hold up a $100 bill and ask participants if any of them would like to have it. I stand in front of the room, and wait until they “get it.”

Usually, after several seconds, someone jumps out of their …

Finding a Win-Win in Difficult Situations

There are some extremely smart and creative people in the tech world. Surprisingly, many of them struggle with the simple concept of finding a win-win situation when adversity strikes.

I’ve observed that it’s common for developers to see a difficult circumstance as a win-lose, lose-win, or worse yet, a lose-lose proposition. These situations can seem scary, but they can also provide a great opportunity to grow a relationship. In my experience, people remember how adversity was handled, not that it occurred.

The ticket to discovering a win-win involves stepping outside of the situation, having empathy for the other party, and using the same creative problem-solving skills that make you a top developer.

Here’s the process I use.

  1. Recognize the Situation
    Many of these situations happen so quickly that we miss them. If you feel like a decision that you’re about to make will result in someone “losing,” you’ve found

Simple decisions to make 2021 better than 2020

There’s no point in telling you how bad last year was. It was simply horrendous on all accounts. And sure, there were probably some good moments on a personal level, but they were scarce and in the shadow of a global pandemic that shook the modern world to its core. Still, isn’t it time to try and change things, at least to some degree?

What went wrong with 2020

As we all know, by the beginning of the last year, a new type of virus began to spread across the world. It was late 2019 when the Chinese authorities reported that something wasn’t right with pneumonia cases in one of their southern provinces. But by the time the rest of the world got to understand the gravity of the situation, it was too late — COVID-19 was everywhere.

However, the pandemic wasn’t the only thing that made 2020 the worst
