Obsessions

I believe our aspirations shouldn’t be capped off by the limitations of our thoughts and belief. But missing out on experiencing the human being within us to achieve something greater (at least in your opinion) isn’t quite living, but suffering. If not for you, definitely the ones around you. So, is it worth becoming a […]

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 […]

Perhaps you’re not cut out for it?

I think by now it’s pretty clear that being an entrepreneur is a status symbol for most people, besides being famous and rich. I said “most people” because I don’t include real entrepreneurs in that category. They’re a different breed and the sooner we (the others!) realise that the better it is for them. Particularly, […]

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 […]

What it means to be a professional?

I know, I know, these mere definitions and don’t quite explain what it takes for one to be a true professional. Everyone seems to have their version or a definition they use as deemed fit. Like this person who lashed out at my friend the other day. And when she started to sob uncontrollably, the […]

Just start playing

I believe our biggest challenge today is that we’ve got access to way too much advice, suggestions, and opinions about anything and everything under the sun. So much so that, it’s border-line paralysing! No wonder why people procrastinate, they’re waiting for that magic pill to get delivered make it alright for them. As humans, we’re […]

Why seek answers when you can ask questions?

As humans, we can’t help but seek clarity on things that matter to us or pique our curiosity. We’re constantly looking for answers to help us get from where we are to where we want to be. Could that be the cycle of life? I’m really not sure. But that’s what we often default to […]

How to screw up your day royally

I’ve thought about this hard and long and here’s what you should do: Get up late. Check your YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter feeds. Skip your “workout,” I’ve got to have some rest anyway. Hit the showers. Get ready and head to the office. While driving you remember, “Wait, what are your goals for the […]

The best investment you can make as a leader

It’s hard to argue that businesses are getting more complex with each passing day. And I’m not talking about systems, processes, AI, automation, analytics or other complexities that technology’s going to bring to the fold. (Though I honestly feel it’s only going to make our lives a lot more easier). It’s the people. They, sorry, […]

Plan your ideal day and stick with it

One of the year-end challenges that I participated involved creating an ideal day and do my best to live it out. Turns out it’s so much harder to stick with it if you’re super ambitious and have conquering the world and making everyone happy part of your plan. So, I did what appeared to be […]
