  • Pushing Past the Terrifying Dip in Motivation

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:53 pm
    By Leo Babauta My son, who is officially an adult in a matter of days, is facing a small crisis: the project he’s working on is not going well, and he’s ready to give up not only on the project but the career he was excited about not too long ago. I can feel the horrible mixture of discouragement, disappointment, difficulty, despair he must be feeling, because I’ve felt it too. I’ve felt this punch in the gut whenever projects or new ventures didn’t go well. I’ve given up, and felt the disappointment in myself. And I’ve pushed through this…
  • It’s Not Too Late to Change Bad Habits

    16 Oct 2014 | 10:22 am
    By Leo Babauta If you’re deeply in debt, or your bad health habits have overwhelmed you, it’s likely that you don’t feel you can make a big impact on those problems anymore. I know when I was an overweight, sedentary smoker, who was so far in debt that I was constantly depressed … I felt hopeless. It feels like any attempt you make to change your situation will have no real impact. It feels like it’s not worth making an effort. One reader wrote: ‘I keep feeling like I don’t know what to do that will have a significant impact and that at this point,…
  • The Smart Way to Stick to Habits

    By Leo Babauta Sticking to a new habit isn’t easy — but if you set up your habit change smartly, you can make it stick. Starting a new habit isn’t too hard — we often get excited about starting an exercise plan or diet or waking up early, for example. But a number of obstacles get in the way of sticking to the habit long enough for it to become automatic. Here are the usual obstacles: You lose enthusiasm: Probably the No. 1 reason people fail is that the enthusiasm they feel when they first start the habit, when they’re fantasizing about how great it’ll be,…
  • My Most Effective Learning Tools

    9 Oct 2014 | 9:48 am
    By Leo Babauta This blog has been a way for me to share what I’ve learned, about simplicity, mindfulness, habits, motivation, work, parenting, life. And it’s been quite a journey of learning. I look back on when I started Zen Habits, nearly eight years ago, and I’m amazed at how much I’ve changed. I’ve lost more weight, become vegan, learned a lot about meditation and mindfulness and contentedness, have experimented with going car-free and unschooling our kids and traveling, have moved to two different cities, and have grown as a person. In lots of ways,…
  • What I Do When I Fail

    zenhabits
    6 Oct 2014 | 10:17 am
    By Leo Babauta I fail at things much more than you might imagine, given that I’ve written books on forming habits and being content with yourself and being a minimalist and more. I fail at all of that stuff, and it feels just as horrible for me as it does for anyone else. I get down on myself, feel guilty, try to avoid thinking about it, would rather hide it from everyone else. Failing at things can really suck. And yet, I get back up and try again. I fail at eating healthy on a regular basis, but I keep trying again. I’m pretty good these days at sticking to an exercise plan, but…

  • Typhoon Report

    8 Oct 2014 | 2:13 pm
    Typhoon Vongfong has become a major typhoon after passing Guam and is a threat to Japan. But it passed Guam to the North, providing only 50 mph tropical storm level winds. My flights were timed perfectly to get our of Guam before the winds came there and arrive in and leave from Japan a few hours before the winds of the typhoon there stopped air traffic. I only had a little turbulence to deal with. Meanwhile, since you never know how fast a storm will intensify or what direction it will turn, Joyce helped prep PIU and our home for the high winds that were coming. The storm left only very…

  • Paluman Marianas #2: I Sihek

    18 Oct 2014 | 7:57 am
    Eight years ago on my blog, I started a series titled "Paluman Marianas," meant to feature different native birds of the Marianas and my drawings or paintings of them. I only did one, for I Tettot or the Marianas Fruit dove, and never got around to posting another one. I have plenty of drawings and paintings that feature Guam's birds, in fact with my daughter Sumahi, I've added quite a few more. Sumahi loves to draw in general, but I've tried to teach her as much as I can about the native birds of the Marianas. She can name many of them, probably more than most kids nowadays. But sharing this…

  • Nightmare in Malesso

    16 Oct 2014 | 4:51 am
    The article below comes from the Liberation Day commemorative booklet published in 1994 on the 50th anniversary of the retaking of Guam by American forces during World War II. It covers the story of the men of Merizo/Malesso' in the south, who fought and killed the Japanese in their own village, liberating themselves prior to the US return. For the past six months I've been working with one of the last survivors of this fight against the Japanese, Mr. Jose Mata Torres, featured in the article. Hopefully in the next few weeks we'll be publishing his memoirs of the war titled Massacre at Atate.

    In this picture, former Governor of Guam Manuel Guerrero is seen talking to US Navy officers during the rehabilitation period following the devastation caused by Typhoon Karen in 1962. Typhoons Karen and Pamela were not only devastating in a physical sense, in that they caused a great deal of damage, they were also devastating and transformative in a social sense, in that the island that was rebuilt after them was very different than the one that had just been obliterated. After both of these typhoons, the US Federal government assisted in rebuilding, even to the point where not only did…
