Secrets to Success

1. Trust yourself 
Trust yourself, dig deep down and ask yourself: ‘who do you want to be?’. Not what, but who. Not what your parents or teachers want you to be, but you! Figure out for yourself, what makes you happy, no matter how crazy it may sound to the people.

2. Break the rules
We have so many rules in life about everything, break the rules! It is impossible to be a true original if you too well behaved and not break the rules; you have to think outside the box. What is the point of being on this world if all you want is to be liked by everyone? The only way that I ever got any place was by breaking some of the rules

3. Don’t be afraid to fail
Anything that I’ve ever attempted I was always willing to fail. You can’t always win, but don’t be afraid of making decisions. You can’t be paralyzed by fear of failure or you will never push yourself. You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision and you know that it is the right thing to do, success will come.

4. Don’t listen to the naysayer
How many times have you heard: you can’t do this, you can’t do that. It has never been done before. I love it when someone says that no one has ever done that before, because that means that if I do it that means that I am the first one that has done it. Pay no attention to people that say that it can’t be done.

5. Work your butt off!
Leaving no stone unturned. Muhammad Ali, one of my greatest hero’s had a great line when he was asked: ‘how many sit ups do you do?’. He said: ‘I don’t count my sit-ups, I only start counting when it starts hurting, that is when I start counting, because then it really counts, that’s what makes you a champion’. That’s the way it is with everything, no pain, no gain!

Someone out there at the same time is working hard, someone is getting smarter, remember that! I’ve always figured out that there is 24 hours a day, you sleep 6 hours. That means you have 18 hours left. I know that some of you out there answer: ‘wait a minute I sleep 8 or 9 hours’. Well, than sleep faster I recommend.

6. Giving back
Whatever path that you take in your life, you must always find time to give something back. Give something back to your community; give something back to your state or your country. Reaching out and helping people will bring you more satisfaction than everything else you’ve ever done!

Why I don't have social media account?

Just to be clear, I do not have any social media accounts except LinkedIn. No Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. 
I used to use some of them but I dropped them all before 2013 and now I am clean for over 4 years. I kept LinkedIn because I use for business contact only.
Today, I came cross this video and found quite interesting as I agree with what he says. 

I always said, the social media website/app specially Facebook and Instagram are just a game. It's funny how some users write the fake status which they don't believe it themselves but other believe it and vice versa. 
If you are making money or adding value to your life by using these apps, then use it otherwise don't kid yourself and just get rid of them, simply. I know it's hard in the beginning but trust me, it worth it, you are not alone. 


I solved GCHQ puzzle and this is how I did it

Today, I was reading the BBC news and I stumbled upon this GCHQ puzzle:
Take the digits 1,2,3 up to 9 in numerical order and put either a plus sign or a minus sign or neither between the digits to make a sum that adds up to 100. For example, one way of achieving this is:
1 + 2 + 34 - 5 + 67 - 8 + 9 = 100, which uses six plusses and minuses. What is the fewest number of plusses and minuses you need to do this? I love to challenge myself with these kind of puzzles, so I solved this and here is how:
We have 9 numbers [1 to 9] and also we have three possible separators [+, - and nothing] which to fill the gap between numbers we have 8 combinations of separators, e.g. we have 1+2+3+4+5+6+7-89 which in this case we have six times plus, one minus and one time nothing. 
So, I need to find all possibilities of combination which total is: 6561

Then, hook the possible combinations into numbers and check the total, easy enough. Now print the solution.
I have written this algorithm in PHP but ea…

Laptop touchpad issue on Linux

I installed Linux (Ubuntu 16.4 LTS) on my new laptop, Fujitsu E series, all went well apart from touchpad which did not work at all. I spend few hours searching (AKA Googling) but could not find any hope. That was embarrassing for me who called himself professional Linux user but cannot fix touchpad issue, what about typical Linux user? there must be way, so I kept searching and reading until finally I found the fix and all is working now. Here is the fix if anyone has similar issue:

In cammed line, run:
sudo modprobe -r psmouse

It should work fine for now but only for current session, it may not work after restarting your laptop, so to add permanent fix, do:sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf

And add following, then save and exit.

options psmouse proto=imps


I used vim, you can use your favourite text editor such as gedit, vi etc. I hope this helps someone and save their time. Read more on modprobe.


Thank you for reading this, as always happy to hear from you.
