Too tired to write…

Really, I am. After a grueling (yet fun and entertaining) 8-hour long kettlebell workshop, the only thing I can think of is sleep. But I wanted to write. Though I don’t have a clue what to. I started out with a few ideas but am mentally too drained to think deeply. Which brings me to […]

How to make people instantly like you…

Google that! And Business Insider’s explanation comes out at the top… leaving out the remaining 2,18,00,000 similar results… (which aren’t as good anyway) Simple! Right? Interesting, isn’t it? Here’s an afterthought… (since I’m so sick of reading, seeing and hearing about it): why do we even have this desire to be instantly liked by someone we may […]

Less

In the past 30 days, I have given away more than 25 books that I clearly had no intention of rereading.

And how do we validate […]

Making a mountain out of a molehill

Confession: I’m not a Bollywood fan. And I don’t want to get into the details right now. I am, however, grossly amused by the mob’s reaction to the movie Padmaavat. Riots, blockades, vandalism over a movie that’s nothing more than an entertaining movie for the vast majority of Indians. There’s absolutely no logic behind Karni Sena’s actions. […]

First things first

Keeping track of finances isn’t the most exciting project in my life. But tracking where my hard earned money goes has been an astounding experience. And now that I’ve been bitten by the bug, there’s no stopping. It’s just beautiful to see your life falling into place when you prioritize and discover the hole that […]

Let’s pause

Slowing down can be scary. We’ve become so accustomed to the frenetic pace of life, going just a little slower can get stressful. But if think you don’t have time to take it slow. That’s precisely you should do. Slow down. In fact, be bold and just press pause. You need it. Work will never […]
