  • Wow Jawwad your reflections are like jewels that i really look forward to getting. Our narratives are so important and what better way to keep them on a positive track! I will write my own superhero now.
    Also wanted to let you know how much your site is positively impacting on my life.. i bought the GTD book and have just discovered ‘bullet journalling’ as a fantastic way to capture and review all my tasks and notes in one place that doesnt tie me to technology..just what i was looking for.

  • Awesome and I love it. I’m on my own hero’s journey as well. Also, I feel like becoming superhuman is something we should all be striving towards. For me, our life is like a book and we can make it into an Odyssey if we only choose to act in a certain way. Those conversations and associations we have in our head definitely are so important.

  • Isn’t it like, when we call someone a ‘hero’…calling somebody a ‘hero’ is giving them that place which we can’t achieve. This entitlement of ‘hero’ is complex in its own way like we want to be like them but we know we can’t, else why wouldn’t we call ourselves a hero?

    • Good Question, Sugandha. You may have heard the famous saying “A hero can be anyone – even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulder to let him know that the world hadn’t ended” – Batman, the Dark Knight Rises.

      The reason I bring up that quote is because we have this “ideal” (http://www.jawwad.me/everyday-ideals/) that we have to be extra-ordinary to be a hero. We are all heroes in our right – if we just focus on OUR story not the media’s story.
