5 lies life had taught me.......
Life has taught me so many nice things about work, friendship, love and living but alas there are a few overrated sayings that should be reconsidered and revised.
These are the 5 lies life had taught me:
1. People change
I believe people do not change. An idiot will remain an idiot, sometimes a nice person can become an idiot but an idiot cannot be transformed to a nice person. A person will change under 2 conditions: if he really wants to, or if something makes him change.
2. Team results are always better than individual results
WRONG. This is a lie that has been carried on in the work place for centuries. I believe that individual work is way better than work done by a team. A person has no limits into perfecting his work. The only competition is thyself. All the great people in history are solos, composers, writers, leaders, rebels, artists, etc i could go on and on.
I want to sue those stupid HR brainwashers :P
3. What goes around comes around
Not until you make sure it does! A lot of people get away with things and nothing comes around, I know, trust me! I've been observing very carefully!
4. Faqed il shay2 la yu3teeh (you can't share what you didn't experience)
It's irrelevant. A person can be an orphan and be a great parent. Feelings like most things in life are not inhereted, they're inherent
And my favorite
5. Money cannot buy happiness
What a poor bitter person he who said that. Show me the money and I'll show you how happy i can be :D I think he meant "Money cannot ONLY buy happiness, it can buy all those other things too"!
