If you seek tranquility, do less

We’ve all struggled to separate the wheat from the chaff, the essential from the non-essential, and the important from the urgent. And it takes a lot of time and skill to get to this place where you know exactly what you will focus on. So much so that it takes an average person half their […]

RIP George Floyds of the world

I chose to keep quiet but it’s hard to do. I’m deeply saddened by the George Floyd incident. Its a cold blooded murder that the public chose to witness and capture on video. And now they’re protesting it. I wish people were bold enough to act (as in “do something!”) when that man was gasping […]

I woke up an hour earlier than usual this morning and felt this strong urge to make coffee. So, I made myself a cup of artisan pour over coffee using freshly roasted beans that I ground myself using the manual grinder. Believe me, it takes some effort but is deeply soul-satisfying. I settled myself into […]

Workplace advice that suck

I think our workplaces are packed with unpaid counsellors ready to dish out life-changing advice at the drop of a hat! If you can sense my sarcasm, you also know that almost 95% of all that you hear is based on the advisor’s observation. Not your context. The remaining 5% does’t even make sense. I’ll […]

The Indispensable Man

It’s quite natural to think of ourselves as “indispensable” at the workplace, in our communities, or in our relationships. We do so much for the people whom we care about after all, right? Just that the thought itself is selfish, arrogant, and implies that we feel “entitled.” Not exactly a great place to operate from. […]

Accreditation

It’s ridiculously expensive. But you don’t need one. If you’re worried about “opportunities,” believe me your attitude and aptitude matter way more than your pedigree. Of course, educational institutions and our culture would have made you believe otherwise — that not having a diploma/degree from a top-tiered institution sets you up for a life of […]

How to find anything on Google (well, almost!)

Now that you are primarily working from home, I’m cocksure you’re spending a whole lot of time on the internet. And a heck of a lot searching for things, information, and people online. I certainly am and while searching for sites similar to some of my favourite curated sites I found this infographic that was […]

One world together at home!

I got to know about Global Citizen’s One World Together At Home through a friend and was quite intrigued. I looked it up and realised that the whole fundraiser is up online! The online event has some of the most creative artists play music while sheltered at home! And I literally thought of this idea […]
