Learning to be more selfish

I think selfishness can be a virtue if thoughtfully applied to our lives. Check out this insightful video to get more clarity on this radical idea: I also did the suggested thought exercise, which requires us to expand on this prompt: If I dared to be more selfish, I would… It was an amazing experience […]

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 […]

A simpler approach to solving problems

I love coffee! Not just any coffee but the freshly roasted, mid-dark or darker, 100% arabica that’s sourced from the best locations in India (or abroad, if I’m traveling but I don’t believing in shelling out a fortune for coffee; trust me, I’ve gotta keep it real at times.)! Now, go ahead, call me a […]

No input, no output

I don’t know about you but off-late, I’ve been feeling a whole lot ickier when someone mentions “content creation.” And I could almost die if they ask how I create content on a daily basis! I don’t! I share my observations through writing, speaking (including my podcast), and curating topics that interest me. Period. Yes, […]

People rise or fall to meet your level of expectations of them

Leading people is quite karmic — what you give is what you get in return. And believe me, even the most confident and self-assured among us capitulate if their leaders don’t have enough faith in them or their abilities. Imagine what that means for the rest — the ones who aren’t that confident nor have […]

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 get work done in a chaotic environment?

For most people, office will be the place to get work done. And while the rest might whine and complain how unproductive it is to get anything useful done at the workplace, you really don’t have much of a choice. Unless, you’re working for a company that offers flexibility to work anytime and anywhere you […]

For best results, flatten as you go up…

Probably the most useless advise for people who make oral health a priority. And I’m convinced it’s useless because my 3-year-old daughter needn’t be told to squeeze the tube from the bottom and flatten it to extract the last ounce of paste. Her instincts knew better. Of course, toothpaste companies won’t stop sharing this age-old […]

What if politicians were to take a public services exam? (Part 2)

Alright, I’ll be honest. This post got a lot more views that I’d anticipated. Including a personal response from a friend (name withheld) that I share below. I’ve certainly thought about the idea of having a minimum qualification or exam for entering politics, I feel that might not work very well in rural areas. 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 […]
