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 […]

Don’t read for show, read to be better

I don’t know what’s with people for their fascination with new year’s resolutions. It doesn’t work. And no, I’m not saying that from my experience, I don’t believe in resolutions hence don’t make them at all! But what I can say (from other people’s experience) is that resolutions are meant to be broken since the […]

So, let’s wrap 2019 up?

Quite an eventful year for a myriad of reasons I can’t even list down. All I can say is that 2019 tested my wits, physical, mental, and emotional strength to the limits. And boy, I wish I could say, “I won the battle in the end” but that’ll be a lie. I lost a lot […]

The historian, reporter, and the futurist

They’re all fine professionals. And would you believe we all have a version of each living inside of our minds? Let me explain. The historian is high on context, age-old facts, and data to help you with decisions. (Ring a bell?) It’s also the one that constantly tells you what or how to respond to […]

Structure your learning

Being a martial arts practitioner isn’t easy. Particularly if it’s a highly technical and full-contact sport like Jiu Jutsu. There’s so much to learn that people often spent their entire lives to master the art. I picked up the art again earlier this year and have been thoroughly enjoying it. So much more than the […]

The last productivity advice you’ll ever need…

Okay, not the last one but it’s definitely the most useful discovery I’ve made this year, productivity-wise. I’ll keep it simple — go to bed and awake at the same time everyday. That’s it! You don’t need a productivity system for that. Just make up your damn mind! Yes, it might get difficult (perhaps borderline […]
