And each time I ask them to figure out a way nonetheless to […]

Thank you, Kobe!

I’ve never been into Basketball or NBA. But from 2000 till 2015, I’ve watched countless matches and match highlights of just one team, LA Lakers, all because of one man — Kobe Bryant. He was a legend not just to me but millions around the world! The man had insane work ethic, something that most […]

Motion over emotion

It seems the supply of motivation, inspiration, and encouragement is almost infinite. You can get it for free from the internet! Or if you prefer to pay or do it in person, countless trainers, motivational speakers, and life-coaches are your service.

It’s not about those ping-pong or foosball tables…

Each time I bring up “culture” into my conversations with my peers, friends, and industry experts, I get to hear a list of facilities and equipments on offer to the employees.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
