Indians Dominate National Geographic Bee

I was reading about the National Geographic Bee award. The picture catch my eye because all the top three winners are of Indian descent‎. This is especially amazing when you consider Indian is of a tiny minority of the population of United States. I have not watched the National Geographic Bee competition. But I believe it is really hard and really board. The contestants must have demonstrated their encyclopedic knowledge to win.

Morning High

I was out running in the morning. Mission Bay is always beautiful and the weather is always great. And I was listening to the TechNation interview of Rom Brafman and his book Succeeding When You're Supposed to Fail. He studies how people succeed despite facing adversity in life and he comes up with a list of enduring principles to achievement. To be accountable to yourself, find passion and meaning in life, stay focus to your goal, have a sense of humor and find your supporting star.

I feel so inspired and energetic from all this. To cap it off, I want to play the song Dreams of Cranberries for her exuberant spirit.
