PDF Editor FAQ

When people use the expression "Jesus H Christ", what does the H stand for?

Well, first, let us talk about where the name “Jesus Christ” comes from. The name Jesus is an Anglicized form of the Latin name Iesus, which is in turn a Latinized form of the ancient Greek name Ἰησοῦς (Iēsoũs), which is, in turn, a Hellenized form of Jesus’s original name in ancient Palestinian Aramaic, which was יֵשׁוּעַ (yēšūă‘), a shortened form of the earlier Hebrew name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (y'hoshuaʿ), which means “Yahweh is Salvation.”y'hoshuaʿ is the original Hebrew name of the hero Joshua, the central figure in the Book of Joshua in the Old Testament. Consequently, yēšūă‘ was one of the most common male given names in Judaea and Galilee during the early part of the first century AD when Jesus was alive. There are even multiple other people with the exact same name mentioned in the New Testament, including Jesus Barabbas in the Gospel of Mark and Jesus Justus, an apostle mentioned in the Book of Acts and in the Pauline Epistles.Although people today often treat the word Christ as though it is Jesus’s last name, it is actually not a name at all, but rather an epithet (i.e. a descriptive title). The English word Christ is an Anglicized form of the Latin word Christus, which is, in turn, a Latinized form of the ancient Greek word Χριστός (Christós), meaning “anointed one.” The word Χριστός is used in the New Testament as a Greek translation of the Hebrew title מָשִׁיחַ (māšîaḥ), which has roughly the same meaning.In antiquity, the title of māšîaḥ was not exclusively specific to any one particular person; instead, it was a generic title that could be applied to anyone who was regarded as fulfilling the role of God’s anointed. For instance, in Isaiah 45:1, the title is applied to Cyrus the Great, the shah-in-shah of the Achaemenid Empire, who freed the Jews from captivity in Babylon after he captured the city in 539 BC and allowed them to return home to rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem.Now that we have that covered, we can proceed to explain where the phrase “Jesus H. Christ” most likely comes from. Most Christians are familiar with the Chi Rho monogram. If you are not familiar with it, here it is:It is composed of the capital forms of the Greek letters chi ⟨Χ⟩ and rho ⟨Ρ⟩, the first two letters of the Greek word Χριστός, superimposed over each other. It is a sort of clever abbreviation that was used by early Christians to signify “Jesus” without having to write out his full name.There is, however, another monogram used to represent Jesus that many people are less familiar with: the IHϹ monogram. Here is one form of it:While the Chi Rho monogram is composed of the capital forms of the first two letters of the Greek word Χριστός, the IHϹ monogram is composed of the first three letters of Ἰησοῦς, which, if you recall, is the Greek spelling of the name Jesus.The first letter is the Greek letter iota ⟨I ι⟩, which looks like the Latin letter ⟨I⟩ and makes the [i] sound as in the word machine, or sometimes the consonantal [j] sound as in the word yellow. The second letter is the Greek letter eta ⟨H η⟩, which makes the long E sound, but which looks like the Latin letter ⟨H⟩. The third and final letter is the lunate sigma ⟨Ϲ ϲ⟩, a form of the Greek letter sigma which looks extremely similar to the Latin letter ⟨C⟩ and makes the [s] sound as in the word soft.These are the first three letters of the name Ἰησοῦς, the Greek spelling of the name Jesus used in the original Greek text of the New Testament. At some point, however, presumably sometime in the early nineteenth century, ignorant Americans who were accustomed to the Latin alphabet and who knew nothing of the Greek alphabet mistook the letters of the IHϹ monogram for the Latin letters J, H, and C. They concluded that the J must stand for “Jesus” and the C must stand for “Christ,” but then no one could figure out what the H stood for. Apparently, some people just concluded, “Hey, I guess H must be his middle initial!”Eventually, the phrase “Jesus H. Christ” became something of a joke and it began to be used as a mild expletive. In his autobiography, the American author Mark Twain (a.k.a. Samuel Langhorne Clemens; lived 1835–1910) observed that the phrase was already in common use when he was still a young lad. Twain tells a humorous anecdote of how, in around 1847, when he was apprenticed to a printer, the evangelical preacher Alexander Campbell, the leader of the “Restoration Movement,” ordered the printer to whom the young Samuel Clemens was apprenticed to print some pamphlets for one of his sermons.Unfortunately, the printer accidentally dropped a few words and, in order to avoid having to reset three whole pages of text, made space to fill in the missing words by abbreviating the name “Jesus Christ” to simply “J. C.” at one point in the text. The pious Reverend Campbell, however, insisted that the printer must not “diminish” the name of the Lord; he insisted that he needed to include the full name, even if it meant resetting three whole pages of already set text. The printer reset the text, but, because he was annoyed by the reverend, instead of changing the text of the pamphlet to say simply “Jesus Christ,” he changed it to say “Jesus H. Christ.”It is important to note that Mark Twain’s story is not the origin of the phrase, but it is an early piece of evidence of the phrase being used.ABOVE: Photograph of the American author Mark Twain taken in 1871 by Mathew BradyHere are the origins of some other humorous oaths:“By Jove!” Jove was a name for the Roman god Jupiter. This oath substitutes the name of a pagan god for the Christian one, the implication being that it was considered less offensive to swear by a deity perceived as being false than a deity perceived as being true.“For Pete’s sake!” The “Pete” that this oath refers to is Saint Simon Peter the Apostle. The oath substitutes Peter’s name for Christ’s to make it a lesser oath.“Gadsbud!” This seemingly nonsense phrase is most likely a contraction of either “God’s body” or “God’s blood,” referring to the body or blood of Christ respectively.“Gadzooks!” This seemingly nonsense phrase is actually a corruption of “God’s hooks,” referring to the nails used to pin Jesus to the cross during his crucifixion.“Holy mackerel!” This oath is of uncertain origin, but it may be a substitute for “Holy Mary,” referring to Mary, the mother of Jesus.“Zounds!” This seemingly nonsense phrase is actually a corruption of “God’s wounds,” referring to the wounds Jesus suffered during his crucifixion.POSTCRIPT ADDED ON 15 AUGUST 2019Since I originally published this article several months ago, several other articles have popped up on various websites, like this one, falsely claiming that the explanation I have presented here is some kind of “new theory” of my own. It is not, nor did I ever claim it was such a thing. This explanation is not “new,” nor is it rightfully mine; I read it in a book somewhere years ago. You can find plenty of older answers to this question that give basically the exact same answer I have just given. All I have done here is present the explanation in my own words.

Is cryptocurrency investing halal or haram?

I am no economist nor a financial adviser, but I do believe that I understand some basics about what money should be. Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, claim to be the new money (or something like that). But at the very essence, their value is very much tied to the FIAT monetary system.Maybe before saying things are haram or halal, it might be best to understand money, first? Then maybe we’d be able to make a more educated decision… especially on whether or not to participate in bitcoin and the rest.MONEY: Let’s start with what money is. Since five to six thousand years, based on what I know, barter, gold and silver, and other trade-able goods were accepted as a medium of exchange. Gold and silver being the ones lasting the longest (up until today, albeit market manipulation), where they still hold relatively the same value since the time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Maybe due to them holding intrinsic value, they can be used in halal trade.FIAT (Paper Money): Long story short… paper “money” was meant to make trade convenient. Based on my readings (please correct me if I’m wrong), FIAT originated as claim checks on Gold in the vault. I think in the past, 35 US dollars was backed by 1-ounce of gold. This means that, there is one ounce of gold (in the VAULT) to back that 35 number on your piece of paper. The dollar claim-check only had value because of the gold in the vault! This imposed control to the amount of claim-checks you can print (since the gold is limited, hence the claim-checks are limited as well). This also keeps things stable to avoid inflation .The Gold Standard being axed: American president Richard Nixon broke the tie between dollars and gold in 1971, which means that no X-dollars is backed by Y-ounces of gold, anymore. The agreement broken was called the Bretton Woods agreement/accord. After 1971 (I hear some say 1973), the USA could print as much claim-checks as they needed!!! This was supposed to be a temporary thing btw, but Nixon never pressed the stop button.So that’s sorta the paper money that we have now all around the world. I don’t mean we all have USDs… no. But we sure ain’t backed by anything anymore. Weird stuff can happen when u’re not backed by anything… such as the wrong people manipulating the economy based on their own whims. Anyway, back on topic. Now, let’s talk money supply. Or more accurately, currency supply. Since the paper that we have now is not actual money, but currency. Moreover, it’s a claim check on nothing!!! (no gold, silver or even a camel backing it up!)One very important feature of money is that it holds purchasing power over long periods of time. We don’t have that in paper FIAT money. In Malaysia where I’m from, a stick of Ice-Cream Malaysia used to cost 10–20 cents back in the 80s and maybe early 90s. Now its around RM0.50 but more commonly RM1.00!!! (image below - basically it’s a popsicle thinggy in a long narrow plastic casing)AIS KRIM MALAYSIAOk. Let us continue…Currency Supply from Haram (Impermissable) Sources: Now we know that governments can literally print as much currency as they want/need/are-forced-to/etc. But they can’t fire the printing press just like that (except maybe for the USA, since they own their own printing press). Where do governments get money? Ok, this is what I understand. After a party wins an election, they must’ve promised a tonna things to the people. They don’t have the $$$ to pay for all these promises. So they offer government bonds, which are actually nice pieces of paper where on them are promises to pay back the borrowed amount, plus interest (riba!). From what I understand, mostly BANKs buy up these bonds. But even if they were bought up by the public, still, when the people sell the bonds back to the governement (after maturity), it includes the element of interest (which is the yield on the bonds). In actuality, government bonds are acutally loans given by BANKs/the-public, to the government. And when the govt. buys back the bonds, they’re really repaying the loan, PLUS INTEREST! (riba’ - Allaah and His prohet decalres WAR on riba’ btw, as many Muslims already know). So in this way, if we are involved in this transaction, we are complicit in riba’… Wallaahua’lam. (I was however recently made aware that some Hanafi scholars say giving riba’ is permissible but taking it is haram. I don’t know the whole story though so don’t take my word for this)The Paper We Have is riba’-based DEBT: Ok. Now the government has the paper currency to distribute to its various agencies (from the bonds they ‘sold’ to the BANKs or the public). Some of these currencies go to government servants as monthly salary. So, as govt. servants, they are actually receiving haram paper currency (but they’re trapped in the FIAT system, so might be a case of darurah/emergency for many, Wallaahua’lam. But we’re not here to talk about this…). And this ‘money’ that they have, is also DEBT! Right? The government’s debt. Each piece of dollar/peso/ringgit/rupiah/rupee that is held, is actually debt (from the loan the govt made from the BANKs/public!). So for each of the paper currency that is held, there is interest/riba’ due on each of them! Since they originated from an interest-based loan. [BTW, the vast majority of currency flowing through society is not from govt. borrowing though. I hear its from the Fractional Reserve Banking system that we have in almost ALL countries]CRYPTOCURRENCIESWhere do the cryptos come in? Well, It’s kind of difficult to establish the link I guess. But I’ll just provide my opinion (which might be wrong… but I’ve thought about all this for quite some time. And God knows best!).1. Bitcoin was made to mimic Gold: Really, if you think about it… the coins having the B-dollar like thinggy is portrayed to look exactly like a gold coin… then you have to mine bitcoin and there is only a limited supply of 21-million coins. These features are that of gold (needs to be mined and has a limited supply). So, it seems like some conditioning is going on so that the masses perceive bitcoin (and other cryptos) as if they are gold or gold-like. All this might be to incite sentiment that cryptos actually have intrinsic value (which they don’t in my opinion - but I know, they are accepted as trade)2. Bitcoin is valued against FIAT: What value does bitcoin have? I mean, intrinsically? At the beginning, bitcoin had no value in 2009. And it’s kind of ironic that bitcoin is supposedly to replace the FIAT system… why ironic? Because today, it only has value because FIATs still have value. It can’t seem to stand on its own, for now (I have no idea if some form of economic gymnastics will be able to inject intrinsic value into bitcoin. Who knows?). Most people own bitcoin not to replace FIAT. But instead, to profit from the rise in bitcoin’s paper/FIAT price! Bitcoin IS VALUED AGAINST FIAT. So now, I still hold the opinion that the FIAT system is haram (but we use FIAT due to dharurah… ). Cryptos are valued against FIAT… So, every crypto currency is valued against an entire system that is riba’ based… Doesn’t that make it a bit, weird? And sorta like, or approaching, or in cahoots with, haram? I don’t dare to give a ruling of haram as I’m no scholar… but cryptos are valued against a haram system…. Makes you think…. FIAT use by Muslims, in most cases, is a necessity (due to dharurah/emergency since riba’ BANKERS control the world economy and monetary system). But when you then create another system on top of it… now that’s sorta a double whammy (for now at least, since cryptos are still valued against fiats)… But it still makes me wonder… If (and most say WHEN) the FIAT system dies or reset… then how will Bitcoin, Ethereum and the rest be valued? … Really makes me wonder…3. Bitcoin vs. Gold/Silver w.r.t. intrinsic value: One function of money is to hold purchasing power over long periods of time. I don’t think anyone disagrees with that. When the FIAT system fails, dollars/pesos/ringgits/rupees/renmimbis etc., will not have any value anymore. Their values will either go to zero or fall very2 low. The US Dollar is no exception (as a matter of fact, due to the explosion of the derivative markets, it’s more vulnerable nowadays). If the USD falls… now, what will bitcoin be valued against? Today 1 BTC = ~$8,000. It’s hard to imagine the value of 1 BTC when the USD has no or very little value. Compare that to GOLD and/or SILVER (dinar and/or dirham). In today’s up-side-down system, gold is valued against FIAT, which doesn’t make sense. Before Nixon axed the backing, FIAT was valued againts Gold/Silver! (What I mean is that FIAT only had value because of the gold/silver). Anywayz, in this up-side-down system, 1-Oz Gold = $1,270-$1,300 (at the time of writing). But say there is a currency reset and the USD falls flat on its face. Does it make sense that Gold also doesn’t have value just because the USD went belly up? I don’t think so… Gold will always have intrinsic value… But can we say the same about cryptos that are currently valued against failing fiats?4. The case of the fish: Ok, I don’t know why fish… but just go along with me. Say the crash happens and the USD and other FIATs die. One day, you are approached by two people, and you have a fish! They want it!!! One has 1-bitcoin whereas the other has 1-ounces of gold. Who will you sell the fish to? Will you take the bitcoin, or the gold?Of course in all, Wallaahua’lam. These are merely my thoughts…I don’t know guys and gals. If you look at it… cryptos don’t seem to exhibit any intrinsic value… except the value that they are purported to possess :’( And if you look at the trend now, especially that of bitcoin, it’s acting very much like a bubble. And when bubbles burst, normally the end result is disastrous. Compare the bitcoin bubble against the TULIP bubble (TULIP MANIA) way back in the 1600s. See any similarities?So, halal or haram…. Wallaahua’lam. Darurah though is on the way, as I believe that the central banks will be coming out with their own cryptos or some form of digital currency. It’s going to be a totally different story after this…. Like it or not, we will be going into the era of Digital Currency [some form of crypto maybe?]. But like paper money… what is any crypto valued against? What is it backed by? What is its value? Can they replace actual money, i.e. Gold or Silver or anything else with intrinsic value such as food/security/land etc., with crypto currencies? Maybe they can, but I’d really like to see how (or maye I don’t want to. Haha!)In all, the cryptocurrency world, enabled by blockchain technology is a system controlled by humans, which is claimed to be secure. The notions of decentralization and anonymity however, seem to be getting thinner as time goes by. We humans can be a greedy bunch, especially those at the top… The Quran does mention that humans are a corrupt bunch (even in the beginning of Surah Al-Baqarah when the angles talk to Allaah regarding the creation of Adam Alaihissalaam).For myself… my current view cryptos are as follows:A speculative instrument, hence… I personally see it as gambling. You can’t control much, and you don’t have a company that trades anything (bitcoin is not a company that sells bits or coins :P). So, what’s controlling its value? Supply and Demand? Of what? And based on what value? Just like the stock market in many senses.Not a valid form of money. Many things are quite unclear. If you guys/gals have read till this long, Google about ‘ACChain’ and how they wanna digitize assets and use cryptos with smart contracts. They did this already in Texas with properties :P So the thing gets a lot weirder… Many things are very very unclear at this point… However many claim its a way to do trade. True… its an alternative. BUT! Many use it as a means to get rich! :) Especially the early adopters. But in all, many things are still unclear about bitcoin. Well, to me at least :)Man this answer was long. Assalaam aleykom.

How can professionals prepare for the post Covid-19 economy?

Your attention please:This is a global economic reset.A reset of the scale that last happened after the second world war.Because of the lock-down, the travel restrictions and the general doom and gloom in sentiments - we are in a global recession.Most experts have little clue on how to tackle this, simply because no one has experienced anything like this in the living memory of this world. This is out of syllabus - a black swan - a Baba Yaga[1] that no one foresaw coming.All major economies will contract[2] - at least a third of all jobs[3][4] will go.One-third to half the value in many large economies will disappear in the short to mid-term[5] [6] .We are sure about a global recession - we can only hope this does not turn into a full fledged global economic depression.There’s a very high possibility that a gainfully employed you,reading this right now, (from anywhere but perhaps India and China[7] ),may lose your job in the coming months[8] .The only question is - how deep is this gloom and how long will it last?The only question is - How can we prepare for what comes next?Your attention please:This is a global economic reset.Remember 2008? - Forget about it!Just to refresh our collective memory - not very long ago, we saw a huge-ass recession around the year 2008 - which lasted for 517[9] days and shaved off at least 57% market value of the listed stocks in the United states.During this recession - millions of people lost their jobs, savings and homes and many ‘too large to fail’ companies, literally went down the drain.Now have a look at this[10] :This graph is a good measure of what to expect in the coming weeks and months.2008 - 56% of market value was lost in 517 days.2020 - 20% of the market value is already lost in the last 21 days[11] [12] .Brace for impact.Let’s get down to a few basic points first.While experts have differing views - Covid-19 may end up affecting as many as 100 million people around the world, claiming as many as 1 million lives[13] [14] .There are at-least 100 million households in India (about 50 million just in construction) - where the earning member is employed in the unorganized sector - the current lock-down and the subsequent slowdown in the economy means that at-least 400 million Indians become super-vulnerable economically, some having no legit means to even feed themselves in the short term. If the local governments slack in their duty - this may even lead to rioting, crime and a breakdown of our social fabric[15] [16] .We are expecting double digit drops[17] in the GDPs of the largest economies around the world. We’ve already seen this happening in the Chinese economy - the other large economies might follow.There is an 80% drop in the sales of automobiles in China[18] . Brazil is expecting a GDP growth rate of -5.5% in 2020, USA is expecting -2.8%, France and UK are expecting -5%, Germany is expecting -6.8%, Italy is expecting -7% growth and China is expecting just 1% growth - the lowest in China’s recent history[19] .The S&P 500 declined about 18%[20] , which is its worst performance since the fourth quarter of 2008. The Dow Jones has declined by 21.5%[21] , which is their worst since 1987 and the Nasdaq Composite Index has come down by 12.6% - and this is just the start.We all shouldn’t forget that covid-19 is a public health crisis and not really an economic crisis - the economic strife is the resultant effect of this global health scare.The thing that matters most right now is confidence - if people in general and institutions, organizations and small and medium sized businesses in particular do not have confidence in a better future - we’re all doomed.Please remember, this is the first of its kind pandemic, where we know both the cause and the affect - unlike the last ones like the Spanish flu or the Black Plague, where we mostly remained clueless and thus helpless. We are better equipped this time and that’s a plus.In the short term the print, travel, hospitality, tourism, real estate, and global supply chain will take a major hit - In the next 2–3 years, we will see large implications of this pandemic on the energy, export, auto, entertainment and banking sector. We can also expect changes in global taxation regimes and a major shift in manufacturing. Globalization will take a back seat.We will see a few very large movies being released direct to home this year - Would eagerly wait to finally see a Salman Khan movie, first day first show on Netflix(?).This will re-invent the lately sagging innovation scene in healthcare with greater institutional budgetary allocation - this may even help revolutionize health insurance and tele-medicine.Lending rates will come down across the board, making the post-covid-19 world, one of the best times to start up. Many individuals currently in the quarantine would finally experience the kick they were waiting for, to pursue what they always wanted to - leading to many successful professionals leaving their ‘safe’ jobs to follow their passions.The greatest hit will be absorbed by what is generally known as the gig economy and the newly enthused drop-shipment industry. Some of the people who are dependent on daily or weekly payouts to run their households will suffer the most from this lock-down and economic unrest.The government incomes across countries will get stretched - while some may finally be nudged to implement a universal basic income or temporary income support of some sorts - as the revenue of the governments get reduced - all countries (except perhaps North Korea and Pakistan) will be forced to shave their defense spending to fund the rehabilitation of their citizens.It is supremely important for us to contain the spread and defeat this virus collectively, as soon as possible - whatever be the cost. The longer it stays relevant - the greater and more long-term will be the damage to the global economy.What next?Since we have established the urgency and seriousness of the current situation - let’s move on to things that one can do.Please remember - we individuals, are the building blocks of our economy. When we apply our skills to create value - our economy churns ahead.Our ancestors struggled against elements of nature - our parents and grand parents struggled against scarcity in general and the steep learning curve of technology - we on the other hand have to fight and remain relevant despite intelligent algorithms and more capable robots.This hairpin bend in the game changing economic churn has somehow coincided with a global pandemic - which has lead to you sitting right now at home, with a lot of free time - Boss, this is your silver lining.Use it judiciously.Heroes wantedOnce the cloud of uncertainty is past us - the economy will require new leaders - new problem solvers and new story tellers. People who can innovate, find loopholes and shortcuts, enthrall a crowd and come up with better, cheaper and faster solutions more quickly.We need people who can inspire, people who can give hope, people who can deliver.We are in an urgent need of heroes.No, we don’t need each and everyone of us to become the Elon Musks or Mary Koms of their respective fields - in the short term, all we need, is to ensure that when we as professionals do one plus one - we come out with something more than two. That’s it.Over-deliver. Pliss.While one way to achieve this is to work harder, but perhaps a more sustainable way is to go ahead and acquire new skills and upgrade.Here below thus, is my personal list of 10 to-do’s which one can indulge in their free time, while they are in quarantine. Break a leg.The list:Curate taste: You must have come across a tobacco product tagline - Swad Badi Cheez Hai (Taste is a big deal) - no truer words were ever said in advertising. While you’re free, have a deeper look at some of the greatest artwork, online - it is your time to sit back and appreciate the finest in human endeavors - there is art in the circuitry of Apollo 11 - there is an art in Tesla deciding to launch a Roadster as their first product - there’s art hidden in how the keypad on your mobile phone works - This art often is the difference between unimaginable success and regular failures - please slow down and start noticing - you’ll enjoy and learn.Read: Read anything that you like. Reading is the cheapest form of time travel - the most cost effective way to have a direct one to one with the best minds of our times and history - reading is also important, because it teaches you how to put your own ideas across - to tell a story - The most important skill which is almost never taught in our schools - a skill which you’d need to convince your future employers, investors and even a spouse, in case you’re unmarried. Read more - pliss!Have a routine: Generally speaking, the difference between a successful person and an also ran, is self discipline. Countless studies like the famous Marshmallow Test have revealed that delaying pleasure, actually helps you become really good at what you pursue. Having a basic routine in your life, especially at a time when you’re practically locked in your house is not just necessary, but crucial in whatever plans you make for world domination.Develop a hobby: Many among us might look down upon hobbies, but it really helps you acquire a new perspective. If you’re not passionate about anything - what are you really doing with your life? No sane person ever succeeded in anything - without a little bit of insanity. Acquire a hobby - it will help.Learn a non-native language: Scientists believe that learning a new language may help you life longer[22] . I personally believe that learning a new language is like acquiring a new super power - If you’re an Indian looking for an easy start, my personal suggestion - try learning one of Spanish/Urdu Reading/Thai/Korean/Kannada - You can finish the basics of any of them within a week - thank me later :)Start a website: It is surprisingly super easy nowadays for anyone to set up a personal website - yours should reflect your personal creativity - be a mode for you to share some of your thoughts and ideas - display some of your personal/professional achievements and everything else that you’d like people to come across, when they search for your name on google. The process of figuring out how to set up your own website, will also help add another feather on your professional cap. Go for it.Call up old friends and acquaintances: In our regular rigmarole of life, we often get disconnected with the very people, who were very important for us at some point in our lives. That best friend from school, that favorite teacher of yours, now retired - perhaps an old neighbor you spent your growing days with - This is perhaps a great opportunity to reconnect - without expectation - to genuinely know what they are going through and help in case you can. Do try.Write: We might have read hundreds of books, but some of us might catch a cold, if someone asks us to write a paragraph about anything. We underplay this skill to our own peril. Just like Mohammad Ali Jinnah, most of us end up never writing anything (except what is required for day to day work) at all. This makes us handicapped, when it comes to expressing our wants, desires and ideas to the people at large. This also leads to a low sense of self esteem in many, which further leads to mediocrity - please stop worrying about what the world thinks and start writing - write about anything you like - you will learn as the time flies - please make it into a daily habit and do not forget to send me a cheque, in case this helps you become a billionaire.Make a list: We are nothing without the hundreds of lists dangling in our conscience. 10 things to do before I retire - 20 places to go, before she turns 30 - 100 experiences, every human must have - the lists can go on and on - right now, please make a list of 3 things you’d love to achieve, as soon as the world has defeated COVID-19. Make that list and share it with your loved ones - see how the universe conspires to help make your wishes transform into reality. Best of luck.Learn to be more thankful: Smile - say thank you and enjoy all the blessings around you. Having loved ones around is perhaps the greatest gift, not cherished by us in general. We are nothing without our family - there is no happiness in a life, not lived for the loved ones. We are social animals - the only way we feel happy is when we give.This is perhaps the best time to sit besides yourself, and have that long pending chat with the most ignored person in your life - you. It is perhaps time to count your blessings - it is perhaps time to renew some of those crazy promises, that a young you made to yourself - as our economy is going into a reset - perhaps it time you do a reset to your own life as well.Best of luck!Thanks for readingCheers and peace.Footnotes[1] Baba Yaga - Wikipedia[2] 5 charts that show the global economic impact of coronavirus[3] More than half of American jobs are at risk because of coronavirus[4] The Economic Devastation Is Going to Be Worse Than You Think[5] 6 charts show the coronavirus impact on the global economy and markets so far[6] Coronavirus outbreak has cost global value chains $50 billion in exports[7] All countries except India and China will go into recession, says UN[8] Coronavirus job losses could total 47 million, unemployment rate may hit 32%, Fed estimates[9] Coronavirus job losses could total 47 million, unemployment rate may hit 32%, Fed estimates[10][11] Stock market hit by coronavirus: Reasons for turmoil, what equity investors should do now[12] Wall Street suffers worst day since 1987 as recession fears grow - business live[13] Estimates of the severity of coronavirus disease 2019: a model-based analysis[14] Coronavirus Live Updates: Half of Humanity Under Lockdown Orders[15] Unorganised growth[16] Workforce in Organised/ Unorganised Sector[17][18] China Car Sales Drop Record 80% as Virus Empties Showrooms[19] Global Economic Prospects[20] Market And Macro Data Signal COVID-19 Economic Crisis Will Be Worse Than In 2008[21] Stocks dive on Dow’s worst day since 1987, tech crashes and Bitcoin is no haven – TechCrunch[22] Learning a Foreign Language Can Help You Live Longer
