Public commitments

Are a bad idea. At least for me. And I’m quite unsure why I despise them. I know they work. For most people. Or at least the ones who seem to be making them. Countless folks make public commitments only to trail off after some time. Thanks for the public’s short-term memory, the world doesn’t […]

How far can you go?

If that’s got you thinking, great! Because it’s one of those rare questions we’ve ever considered asking ourselves. Or perhaps, we’re plainly scared to face the reality and end up actually doing the work. You know what I’m referring to. The grandiose goals that you have for yourself or your company or your team. You’re […]

There’s always that choice to make

Bosses can be pain in the ass. In a good way — they help unleash your best version. Something you may never have done it yourself. And no, I’m not saying just because my boss my read it. It’s a fact. Listen, you’re gonna spend the rest of your life (if being employed is the […]

Make a decision using the 3 R’s framework

Been studying John Maxwell’s Develop the Leaders Within 2.0 to prep-up for my next mastermind in June. One of the most profound (to me) chapters in the book is on Decision Making. It’s the hardest skill to master, yet none of us (yes, even you!) won’t admit that we suck at it! I guess that’s […]

And I thought this would be easy?

My mind’s busting with numbers, calculations, terminologies, and whatnot. So much so that I can’t seem to blurt out one comprehensive word! Right this moment, I’m thinking about the volume distribution of a preparatory phase training program for a beginner. Need to design one too! If that sounds complicated, believe me. It is! Now I […]

Dazed and confused

One of the first things I looked for after reaching Incheon (Seoul) was a Starbucks. And I found it… not just one, but many sprawled across the city. It truly is one of the most stunning places I’ve visited in recent years. I’m just inspired and awestruck each time I get to another corner of […]

Stop sowing, let the seeds reap

I’m all set to take off to South Korea. For yet another training and development program. This time in powerlifting/strength training. I’d been eager to sign up for this until I really did a couple of weeks back. Needless to say, I’m stoked! Really looking forward to learning a lot and apply to my business. […]

Everything rises and falls on leadership

That’s what John Maxwell has taught me… and a million others across the world. The sad part is that leadership has become a commodity. Every one wants to become one but nobody wants to actually be one. Most leaders would rather impose authority than influence to get things done. Where have all the leaders gone? […]

What slows down momentum?

Yesterday I spoke about one of my favorite topics — building momentum. And honestly, I didn’t think I didn’t a great job covering off all the important aspects of building, maintaining and obstacles to momentum. Let’s face it — we want to slow down in life but would always appreciate having that sense of momentum in […]

Building momentum

I googled the word “Momentum” for its literal meaning. And here’s one of them: the impetus and driving force gained by the development of a process or course of events. Having a sense of momentum gives me a high! I feel like a snowball rolling down a steep hill that just grows bigger and bigger. My […]
