I coach, speak and train to empower people and organizations who want to make this world a better place.   

Hey, there! Welcome to my virtual nest! And a BIG THANKS for dropping by! Seriously, you could have been on any other site… but you choose to be here and I deeply appreciate it.

My name is Sunil Nair. I am a teacher, a communicator, an entrepreneur, and a warrior of life. I deeply passionate about helping people and organizations get unstuck and unlock their next level of potential. And I’m as much passionate about learning, particularly the art and science of Communication, Psychology, Business, and Philosophy.

Some facts about me:

  • A Minimalist (work in progress)
  • A Stoic (work in progress)
  • An Ambivert (Introvert + Extrovert… more introvert, but people have a hard time believing that)

Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan’s seminal work, The ONE Thing, has had a great influence in my life and what I do. The premise is quite simple: “What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary? No matter how success is measured, personal or professional, only the ability to dismiss distractions and concentrate on your ONE Thing stands between you and your goals.” (Excerpt from their website.)

My ONE Thing is this: Use my skills as a writer and teacher to help people clarify their thought process and communicate better.

That’s it! Simple. And I like it that way.

 

“The Razor’s Edge”

Oh, Come on! What does it mean? You could do better…

As a marketer, I can’t help but come up with names that are thought provoking and/or catchy. (Frankly, this habit borders on the side of obsession… some of my friends hate it! But that is another story for another day.) I bumped into “Razor,” the Philosophy during my undergrad years (have a minor in Philosophy) and have been fascinated with it ever since. I apply it almost everyday of my life.

Occam’s Razor (I know you were thinking about it) is just another Razor. There are many more. The essence lies in the simplicity and the core purpose of the broader concept than one specific concept. All of them, however, are variation of the thought that “Entities are not to be multiplied beyond necessity.”

For simplicity’s sake, I chose to stick with Razor, the fundamental principle, which allows one to eliminate for a perception/phenomenon/circumstance. And that’s what this blog is all about—deconstruct, analyze, and clarify aspects that make us great Communicators and Strategists.

That’s all the explanation I can give right now.
