Any given Sunday!

Hand me a list and I’ll get to work. Today wasn’t any different. I should ideally be happy. The day was super productive… But it’s almost midnight and I miss my kids. They’re fast asleep. Of course, I’ll catch up with them tomorrow but that’s not the point. The challenge with all us hustlers is […]

Difficult Conversations

They ought to be had. And the sooner you do it, the better. Yet, we don’t do it as often as we should, which isn’t great since the opportunity cost is just too high. It may even cost your life! And it becomes even more important if you are the one needing that conversation. I […]

Fooled by randomness

I lost my trusty AirPods a couple of days back. And I’ve been cussing under my breath every minute since. For being so stupid. So careless. So inconsiderate. How the hell could I lose them? How could I possibly survive without them? I don’t exaggerate when I say that. I literally had those plugs in […]

You can’t do it all

If you’re thinking this post is about productivity, you’re probably right. Emphasis on “probably” because being able to “do it all” goes beyond making the right choices or getting things done. I would even argue that productivity isn’t about the number of hours you spend doing “useful stuff” anymore. Productivity is a mindset. It’s your […]

Why even bother with side projects

Regardless of who you’re working for (yourself or someone else), you should have a side project. Period. It’s not about hustling to make millions. If it happens, great! If not, that isn’t the point anyway. I’ve been working on numerous side-projects since 2007. And I’ll be honest, I haven’t made a nickel off any of […]

How to make it easier for others to refer you

We know asking for referrals is the most effective way to grow your business. Some organizations have thrived purely on referrals. But most organizations, especially the small ones, are hesitant when it comes to referrals. They feel its awkward and intimidating (for the obvious fears of failure or rejection). And it sure is. But if […]

Warming my way up to the gym

I had this crazy thought last evening, “I’ve had enough. I need to get moving.” I haven’t been to the gym in almost a month now and the restlessness was getting onto my nerves. My physio summoned to supervised sessions for the next couple of weeks to strengthen my injured shoulder (a grade 2 rotator […]

Life is simple…

… we intend to make it complicated, said the great Confucious. And I’ll be the first in line to back the statement up. Take a look around you. What do you see? Complicated stuff. Everywhere! Life was so much simpler a few years back (even a decade back). Now I analyze my life quite often. […]

Execution is everything!

I’ve talked in detail about hustle porn and how delusional can it get after some time (without any offense to GaryVee, of course, he wouldn’t give a shit but still…). Like it or not, the millions of fans that Gary has like him for the motivational messages he shares on a daily basis. It just feels […]
