Obsessions

I believe our aspirations shouldn’t be capped off by the limitations of our thoughts and belief. But missing out on experiencing the human being within us to achieve something greater (at least in your opinion) isn’t quite living, but suffering. If not for you, definitely the ones around you. So, is it worth becoming a […]

The future of cars certainly looks promising

I dig cars! But not to the point of wasting hours at end watching car reviews. But I certainly take notice when something new hits the market and makes some noise. For Indians, it’s the Nexon EV from Tata Motors in 2020. Check out some of the reviews below: Honestly, I was blown away! And […]

They may be accountable to you, but not for you

I’m in the middle of conducting a massive online survey across a wide demography and the responses so far have been quite mind-blowing*! I didn’t want to wait until the tail end of the survey (or it’s conclusion) to share a glimpse of what’s really going on. Mind you, this is an Indian audience, and […]

Perhaps you’re not cut out for it?

I think by now it’s pretty clear that being an entrepreneur is a status symbol for most people, besides being famous and rich. I said “most people” because I don’t include real entrepreneurs in that category. They’re a different breed and the sooner we (the others!) realise that the better it is for them. Particularly, […]

Managing effective leadership transitions

Building a succession plan, creating an leadership pipeline, and facilitating a leadership transition are three of the most important strategic initiatives for any established organisation. Ideally. The complexities of corporations (whatever that means) don’t allow enough room to think or act in these “ideal” terms. In my experience, barring a handful of small & medium […]

Today matters

I was listening to John Maxwell’s introduction to his book Today Matters the other day. As always, I was stunned by the simplicity of his message, which was around how we evaluate our successes on a day-to-day basis. We exaggerate yesterdays: We do this all time, don’t we? In fact, at times we also over-exaggerate […]

Hey, Google… trust me, this isn’t spam

Just like millions of its users, I love Gmail, Google and its suite of services. So much so that I used to have two paid plans up November last year when I finally had the courage to consolidate my digital accounts. (And let me tell you, it’s hard work!) Despite my affinity towards all things […]

What it means to be a professional?

I know, I know, these mere definitions and don’t quite explain what it takes for one to be a true professional. Everyone seems to have their version or a definition they use as deemed fit. Like this person who lashed out at my friend the other day. And when she started to sob uncontrollably, the […]

You never know who you bump into? Are you prepared?

Had a fantastic meeting with a prospect (soon to be client if things go well) the other day. I walked out of the meeting in high spirits and as I approached the parking lot, I saw a familiar face among a triad that was walking towards the food court adjacent to the building I came […]

For argument’s sake…

I don’t know about you but I must have heard it before. Like a thousand times or more! And the moment it comes up these days, my mind just goes berserk! Here’s why: Most arguments are essentially strong opinions, weakly held. There’s not much evidence to back anything up, just experience and anecdotal evidence, which […]
