Did I just contradict myself?

So, the other day I looked up stats for my blog and noticed a few clicks on a post I’d written over a year ago. Felt good. Just that I didn’t even remember writing it! And the next logical question I asked myself was — is this thing (blogging everyday) even working? There are two […]

Would this solve our problem?

If the answer to that question is a “no” or a variant thereof you should probably stop and reconsider what are doing. Yes, this sounds generic, I know but that’s intentional because I know this works for almost any challenge you’re facing right now. If you’re bold enough to answer the question honestly. This seemingly […]

Is sincerity all lost of us?

Turning 35 this past week was both satisfying and humbling. The former because I realised that I have friends and family who really care about me and want to see me succeed. Humbling because I realised that while I’m engaged in a handful of projects that are significant to my values and mission in life, […]

Ignorance won’t lead you to change

Delhi’s been under a lot of smoke (pun not intended) lately. And it’s been the topic of major discussions the past couple of weeks.

This was has been remarkable — a handful of instances where I either got stood up or didn’t hear back from the other person a pre-arranged meeting. It’s infuriating. And for the first time in life, I didn’t feel like following up. Yes, I am aware there could be a genuine crises at the other […]

Do this everyday if you aren’t a teen anymore…

In retrospect, I think I was the most ‘free’ when I was a teenager. Life in general was so much less stressful. I just didn’t have a care in the world. The pressures of school were negligible compared to what my own 9-year old goes through. I was super-active not only in sports and in […]

Checking emails isn’t doing work

I don’t know about you but I’ve had days when I’ve spent more time checking, drafting and responding to emails than actual work. Yes, I know ‘doing emails’ is a big part of your work when you move into leadership but it’s isn’t the only thing. It is what Stephen Covey might say living in […]
