Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.


One day you may say something completely out of line.

You feel ashamed, but it’s done. Once you pronounce those words you can never go back.

In physics, we call this irreversibilities. There will always be irreversibilities.

In good things, you wish time would stop into everlasting joy.

In bad things, you wish time could go back to make amends.

Time never stops. It never goes back. Time unfolds only forward and once you grow such awareness, you take better care of words and how you use them.

It’s the long-lasting art of speaking with wisdom. I can never go back to remove those words, but I can use the power of positive words to keep moving forward toward a better life.
