Reflecting on Life

A blog on habits, books, and the art of living

Start Here!

Hi! I’m Yibo, an Emory University student. Welcome to the Reflecting on Life blog!

You are about to start on an incredible journey with me! I’m excited to talk to you about ways we can improve our lives and become happier. Happiness is the byproduct of pursuing the day to day journey to becoming our “true” selves.

To paraphrase one of my heroes Charlie Munger from the book Seeking Wisdom “this is blog is for those who love the constant search for knowledge”.

I promise to make each post a brief 5-10 minute read and hope each post will have not just knowledget but wisdom to help guide us through our daily struggles.


Every night, I try to set about 15 mins to reflect on my life and think about ways I can improve it. Making mistakes and reflecting on them is the only way I’ve ever grown as a person. I believe that by reflecting on our lives we can all learn to live a fulfilling life.

That’s me in a nutshell.
