What would you like to happen?

Like everyone, I get overwhelmed too. Lots of options, possibilities, and tactics to consider for my work, family, passion, business, training, routines, books, and sometimes even music! And it does get stressful at times, so much so that I keep wondering why do I keep making my life miserable. But that’s just another day at […]

Plan B…

… not having one is a stressful situation, particularly if Plan A doesn’t seem to be getting you anywhere. I’m not sure if this goes against or with conventional wisdom, but I firmly believe we all need a Plan B. And no, I’m not talking about those ‘just-in-case’ plans that most of us fall back […]

So, what do you do?

Every now and then I would bump into someone who would eventually ask me, “So, what do you do?” It’s one of my least favorite questions. The worst of all scenarios, however, is introducing myself in public settings. I hate it. And that’s just putting it mildly. Yet, I end up sharing a rambling of […]

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!

When you’re working on Sundays…

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” […]

Leveraging your talents to make up for the ones you don’t have

The other day I talked about how anyone takes up any skill and hone to an extent that it becomes second-nature to them. It’s quite possible and I would be an active case study should you ever need one. Though I’m pretty sure there are many around you right now! Communication is #33 among the […]

Excellence is possible, even without talent

Of all the random things I do out of sheer curiosity, taking the Clifton Strengthsfinder 2.0 wasn’t. After rereading some of Gallup’s publications I simply got curious to know my natural talents. Who wouldn’t be after all, right? You’ll be surprised! More than 20 million people from across the globe have taken the Clifton Strengthsfinder […]
