They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. -unknown

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life." John Lennon -unknown

It’s an interesting thought. But it looks like John Lennon didn’t say about this.
You can read discussion about the source in Wikipedia: Is this a real quote from John Lennon? – Wikipedia:Reference desk/Archives/Humanities/2011 October 30 – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Whoever said about it isn’t important, is it?

It’s interesting to see why people put anonymous quote in some famous person. So it feels like a bit deceiving. So I can understand people can feel uncomfortable with this quote.
But if I pursuit of my happiness, it means I’m being selfish?! You can see from people’s talk here: Did John Lennon really say this? It sounds so stupid. | IGN Boards

I told you in the previous article: “Maybe your country’s situation is better. But how much better, do you think?” –We never ask ‘why’. That’s why our(and your) education system failed. @ December 22, 2013

Don’t you have any opinion about anything?

If you are nothing to say, just don’t say it. One twitterian always saying ‘Good morning everyone!’ almost everyday in the early evening.

Just a few minutes ago, I saw one twitter account with full of quotes. And what amazes me is that twitterian have 1.4k followers.
So this is what I have in my mind.

I know motivational quotes are good. But I don’t know why someone quoted it in facebook or twitter almost all the time. I felt like they were nothing to say. That’s why they were borrowing the sentence from famous quote, right?

They don’t have any opinion about anything, do they not?
If they have something on their mind, why they don’t tweet or write it?

I really like the word ‘productivity’

better than ‘innovation’.
It sounds really nice and comfortable. I don’t know why. But I do know that it can make differences.

When I need some application for iPod Touch, I always look up at productivity categories. Actually you can’t find a lot of applications, though.
Most of them are personal managements stuff such as note or memo, todo list and checklist. Simple but, it is most productivity stuff.

Why?
If you have a idea or some thought, how you gonna keep it? Memorize it? No, right? You probably wanted to write down. That’s why small piece of paper was most powerful tool in the world. 😀
You can write down by word. Also you can draw something. Whichever you like it.

Anyway, I just found one websites called “WeFollow: A User Powered Twitter Directory” and then there has tag for productivity.
I found one interesting twitter user called “productivity501“. And I found one very good quote “If you are looking for a big opportunity, find a big problem.~Anonymous” so I follow on twitter.

So I retweet it like that.

RT @productivity501: If you are looking for a big opportunity, find a big problem.~Anonymous >> That’s exactly why I came back to Korea.

I will tell you about my first or second favourite word next time.
