I get knocked out but I get up again…

Participating in ADCC India Nationals 2020 wasn’t just memorable but also quite a leap by all standards. It was one of my first sporting competitions in years and besides all that preparation certainly helped me expand my skills as a jiu-jitsu practitioners to the next level. I think I learned more about the art in […]

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 […]

Just give it some time

After every rolling session I’ve had in the past few months (since I’ve gotten back into BJJ) I get into this weird zone of self-doubt. Am I good enough? What’s the point of being so strong and yet not technically proficient? Why am I even doing this? Thankfully, I the know the answer to the […]

A global crises doesn’t have to be your crises

Can you count the times any of the previous world-wide crises’ has had a direct impact on you or your business? Notice I used the word “impact,” not just affect.

Yet I’m amazed at the value that’s placed on ‘great ideas.’ Not that anything’s wrong with it but I believe there’s a time and place for ideas, which if dragged on forever have the potential to become far-fetched dreams. Simply because everyone was busy ideating instead […]

It really is all in the mind

So a bunch of friends and I decided to do a short 2-hour hike this morning. It was sort of steep, climbing to an elevation of 8,300 feet (approximately) is simple compared to the much arduous treks in India. This wasn’t a trek as most of my friends believed it to be — there’s a […]

Sometimes taking the matters in your own hands could be your best move

I’ve been seeing a physiotherapist for over 3 months now — thankfully for different injuries. The latest is tricep tendonitis I developed, ironically, while squatting heavy instead of the usual suspects — the bench and barbell overhead press! Now, getting an appointment at the rehab center is hard and the best I manage is a […]

Here’s some feedback on feedback

I’m big on giving and receiving feedback. But only the ones that are genuine and actually helps the other person get better. Now, I know what you’re thinking — “Sunil, there’s something to gain from all or any feedback that’s shared with you.” With great love and respect, I disagree. The challenge with most “constructive” […]

You need to diversify

Not just your investments, you career too. If you’re employed somewhere. Great! Get a side-hustle. And this is particularly important if you’re slogging 14-hour-workdays and don’t see yourself working for this very firm 5 years from now. I know what you’re thinking… “how the hell am I suppose to find time for this?” I hear […]

Value isn’t a throwaway word

I interviewed a candidate recently. He was great! In fact, just the perfect fit for the role we have been looking for the past couple of months. It would’ve been ideal for us to simply hire this person. In fact, it was a no-brainer. Things took a drastic turn, however, during the final interview process. […]
