All transformations begin with this…

The other day a friend asked me about the difference between intentional leadership and transformational leadership.

Done with intention, the small wins can have a compounding effect on your life. It sure has changed my life profoundly. But who has the time to give a hoot about these small wins (or “little things” as people would like to say) when all the money and excitement is in going after the big […]

Making the most of the time you have right now

If you and your loved ones aren’t affected, you could be easily saving anywhere between 1 and 3 hours every day. Bonus on the weekends! The question is what are you doing with all this time you have right now? For most, it’s family time. For some, it’s time to catchup on life and other […]

Do what you can with what you have

It literally is the antidote for all your excuses. Particularly during these unprecedented times. While I feel lucky to be alive and healthy amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been quite frustrated with my routine lately. I’m pretty sure millions around the world are facing the same issue.
