You’ve probably seen this picture before. Same as many other thousands of pictures with nice inspiring or just wise words and quotes, social media made them easy to share and… almost useless.
“If you have something to do that is worthwhile doing, don’t talk about it, but do it. After you have done it, your friends and enemies will talk about it.”

Why is it necessary to gain weight? (all the women who are trying to get slim will cry now :P)
According to the laws of physics explaining gravitation, physical bodies attract one another with a force proportional to their mass. In simple words, light objects revolve around the heavy ones.
It happens almost the same way in our life: there is a leader and followers, a planet and satellites. Who are you? I guess many people asking themselves such a question. “Whether I am a trembling creature or whether I have the right.” Classics.
As I see it, the only difference between the HUMAN and cosmic GRAVITATION is that each person defines and gains own “mass” individually. And this is process, which is constantly going on.

When I was a teenager I didn’t like my city and especially the area I used to live in. And the most natural way of coping with unpleasant reality became creation of my own sub-reality, my own story.
I needed that environment not just to surround myself with beauty I was missing, but also to find meaning. I wanted to ask and answer big questions, I needed those people who would be interested in the same level of conversations, people whom I could not find in the outside world.
I didn’t find them – I created them. The main heroes of “my Story” appeared as characters of inner dialogues and all the mythical worlds got created as beautiful environment for meaningful conversations.
But why a fantasy story?
“There is no unemployment in the World of Warcraft”
says Jane McGonigal
Why do we prefer imaginary worlds to the real one?
“Games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we
could harness this gamer power to solve real-world problems?
Jane McGonigal says we can, and explains how.”
– says intro to that video at ted.com
But seriously, will gamers save a real world?
We should admit, ideas play a significant role in the world and our society. Way more significant than money.
Those who know me well would agree with this statement: I am passionate about ideas.
Many people look at ideas as the privilege of creative freaks or innovators who are running life-changing businesses and swim in money. That’s not true. Ideas are everywhere. Just some people develop the ability to play with ideas faster, than others.
