Your life is worth capturing, isn’t it?

I was in Grade 6 when my English teacher asked us to write a “dear diary” for the very first time. I was good at it and was instantly labeled the go-to person for “diary entries!” Who knew this could be a talent? It didn’t seem like a big deal to me. Perhaps it was […]

You don’t get to decide the hike, dummy!

If you’re employed somewhere, you need to pick up tangible skills that are valuable for both your existing and the next employer. Emphasis on “tangible” because that’s the part almost everyone misses but still would like to have a 30% hike. Which is annoying because: They’ve no freaking clue how the market and employer’s demands […]

Commitment to mastery

It’s idealistic. Pragmatists and the know-it-alls hate it. And ironically, professionals think it’s a waste of time as well since they’re busy playing either catch-up with the trends. Folks at your workplace don’t give a damn about your commitment to mastery. The loving souls at your home just don’t get (and are terribly worried) about […]

How to grow in consistency

Can’t believe I’ve been studying, teaching and coaching the 15 Laws of Invaluable Growth for almost a year now! It has been a fun and rewarding experience. And this year I look forward to engaging with both individuals and corporates for my mastermind workshops. I’m still ironing to the details and will most likely have […]

Good enough? Now, go further!

You and I know that “someone” who would waste a major chunk of our time either “getting ready” or making it (whatever that maybe) “just perfect.” Don’t you? If you’ve been listening, I’ve made it pretty clear — the perfection gap is going to make things worse for us. We have to get over it […]

The 15 laws of invaluable growth mastermind

I’m game for my third 10-week study on the 15 laws of invaluable growth mastermind. It’s based on a book by the same name by John Maxwell (I’m part of the John Maxwell Team and am licensed to teach some of his flagship courses). This is a powerful mastermind focusing on accelerating not just your […]

It’s a leap of faith

I’m a fan of animated movies. And thanks to my kids, I’ve been watching more of these than I ever have! Yesterday I decided to take sometime out with my son. Thought of watching Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse with him. Good decision — we both LOVED it! In fact, I even posted a jibe on my […]

90% of coaching is self-coaching… but someone has to help them explore!

The other day Seth Godin shared a compelling post on why all motivation is self-motivation. And he’s so damn right, as usual, to say that. Motivation is an intent to take action by own our volition. Anything else is just coercion. But here’s one great problem — the post might’ve send wrong signals despite Seth’s […]

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 […]

Getting out of your own way

It’s difficult to master. I’ve been trying to do so for the past many years with moderate success. Be it coaching, leadership, training coachees in the classroom or in the gym or even relationships, I have been responsible for some of the most significant fuck ups. And that’s putting it lightly. What got in the […]
