Today I caught myself thinking about my intelligence, or perhaps the lack of it.
Unfortunately, I am not the kind of person who can explain the world history as if I was gossiping with a friend. Either I don’t know how to write a analysis about the world economy or debate about politics.

1+1 = DAD
Let me be honest with you, in my self-assessment it seems that I live in between knowledge and forgetfulness.
I read some articles about my ‘condition’ in magazines and figured out some of the mysteries between being smart and being a hard worker.
The smart person thinks there is a need to prove to the world that he/she knows everything. The problem is that, the harder someone tries, more frustrated they become when results are not achieved.

I may take longer than others to achieve my goals but I go for it
When I struggle with maths problems, I call my father who is a mathematician.
When I can’t remember the name of a film, I call a friend who seems to have a hard drive instead of a brain.
The important thing is to be humble.
I do not mind saying, “I do not know”, because I finish the sentence with “but I can try.”
Honesty and effort open doors.
