It’s January, let’s talk gym memberships

You know you don’t really have to get one but you want to because you want to lose weight or simply adopt a healthier lifestyle. Congratulations! You’re one step away from getting started. Except that, gyms actually don’t want you to use their facility. They just want your money! Yup! You heard that right. Take […]

So, you don’t like me swearing? Well, fuck you!

And I mean it! For a few great reasons: This is who I am as a person. I swear. Yet, I’m nowhere close to some folks whom you personally know! Listen, I’ve tried to suppress my authentic self in the past (be it on stage or the socials or even here) and it hasn’t served […]

Alright, fellas. It’s time!

To party. To binge-watch on Netflix or Amazon Prime. To plan for a much needed week-long (read: expensive) vacation. To plan ahead for 2019 and set those big-hair-audacious-goals! To look back at 2018 and reflect on your wins and losses. I’ve done with goal-setting and plan to reflect on the year that just went by. […]

I interviewed a candidate recently. He was great! In fact, just the perfect fit for the role we have been looking for the past couple of months. It would’ve been ideal for us to simply hire this person. In fact, it was a no-brainer. Things took a drastic turn, however, during the final interview process. […]

A lot of things can be fixed by hard work

Was listening to David Goggins riff on how a lot of things can be fixed by simply working hard. And I agree with him, not because of his hard-earned accomplishments or my addiction to motivational junk (like most folks are these days), but from my own experience where I fixed my challenges by simply working […]

The last mile is the hardest one

And I know that to be true despite not being a marathoner (or do anything that remotely resembles running)! Some of you know that I challenged myself to blog everyday at the start of this year. And yes, I’ve done pretty well by not missing a single day. That said, December has’t been pretty. I […]

The timid me…
