Importance of water conservation

For all living beings on this planet, water means life. Looking at our oceans, it is easy to be deceived that we have abundant water. Ocean water is salty water and it cannot sustain life on land. Most land species require fresh water. Fresh water is only 2 percent of the water of this planet. Most of it is frozen and in polar ice caps and rapidly melting and dissolving into the oceans. Humans, industry, crops, and wildlife (plants and animals in the wilderness) compete for the remaining fresh water.


Importance of thinking for yourself

It is important for every human being to be able to think for himself or herself. We all have a different set of tastes, beliefs, preferences, personalities, goals, and lives. This combination makes us unique. Therefore something that might work for one person might not be suitable for another. Can all of us be good at Mathematics? Do all of us want to become doctors? Of course not. We should find what interests us and then pursue it.


Common mistakes people make when adopting eco-friendly lifestyles

The moral of their experience is that it is either too expensive, too difficult, or impractical to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle. Yet increasing number of people who succeeded in reducing their environmental footprint and are living healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives. They dismiss the arguments of too expensive, too difficult, and impractical.

How to encourage innovation

I once sat in a committee whose job was to come up with great and innovative ideas for the organization. Very few ideas came to the table. Some good ones were proposed but they were shot down with criticism or died due to lack on enthusiasm. The ideas which were put forward by the committee were compromises and safe bets. Nothing revolutionary and nothing out of the ordinary.

Tackling the looming water crisis

Water is the most essential compound for life. It seems that we have a limitless quantity of water on our planet but this couldn’t be further from the truth. We need fresh water for drinking, households, agriculture, and industry. Only 2% of our water is fresh water. This includes the polar icecaps, glaciers, rivers, streams, lakes and underground water. All plants and animals living on land require fresh water for survival.
