20 Brilliant Articles You Must Read to Add Oomph to Your Life

“I poured a cup of OJ but decided to have milk instead.”
“What time is it?”
“Just listened to my fav song! #soooohappy”
“I’m boooooooored.”

Twitter is full of self-centered Gen Yers who constantly dump useless information into the Internet second after second, minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. Twitter is just a giant pit full of garbage spewed by people who don’t have anything important to say.

That was my impression of Twitter, and that’s why I avoided it from the time it started (2006) until now. I finally gave in and created a Twitter account on behalf of this website, not expecting much. Never had I been more wrong in my life. I quickly learned that Twitter is not a hub of useless information, but more like a gold mine of brilliant, eye-opening, and helpful articles written by the foward-thinking leaders I just so happened to find on Twitter.

In fact, the material I found was so thought-provoking that I’ve decided to start doing a monthly collection of articles on happiness, success, leadership, health, and wisdom. I hope you enjoy these brilliant, mind-provoking articles as much as I did!
