5 things to learn from Sheldon Cooper

Sheldon Cooper








Sheldon Lee Cooper is known to us all, isn’t it! One of the best fictional characters that television has ever seen. Apparently, a lion’s share of The Big Bang Theory’s success should go to the character of Sheldon Cooper. All credits to Jim Parsons for doing full justice to the role. If you observe closely, all the characters in the show are given almost equal footage but Sheldon Cooper makes it miles ahead from the rest of the characters! There is something special about the character, or rather everything about the character is special. Although, the character may seem funny and light but there is a lot to learn from it!


  • Strategize, plan and then move ahead. That’s the way Sheldon does everything in this life. There is nothing that’s not planned and there is a strategy and proper documentation for everything. May it be selecting a room-mate (The room-mate agreement) or selecting a dress for a Halloween party; everything is bestowed with a lot of logic, intelligence and planning.


  • Be specific. Often we beat around the bush, don’t we! That’s something that Sheldon never does. Being specific at times may sound harsh but in the long run that’s always a better thing to do. Also, Sheldon has this fabulous ability to concentrate for hours at a stretch.


  • Always remember your priorities and be passionate about things you like. Yes, that’s what Sheldon always does! He always remembers his priorities and pays full attention to them. At times, we get flummoxed in things and forget our priorities. Also, Sheldon’s passion for science is amazing. Actually, passion is an understatement for what Sheldon has for science!


  • Do what you like, don’t care about what the world would think! Sheldon does what he likes. He may sound blunt at times, but that’s your problem not his. May it be his favourite sitting spot (The sweet spot) or his meal preferences, he does what he likes without giving a damn.


  • Even if you care for people, don’t tell them that you do! Yes, at times we notice that Sheldon actually cares for his friends but never shows it. He has empathy for his friends. He celebrates their success and becomes concerned at their under achievements, but he hardly shows it. When you keep showing people that you care for them, the essence abates and people may start taking you for granted.
