I used to be a big idiot. Now, I am just the regular version.
The one thing that was different in this project was that it was not a project.
I decided to start running a 5k everyday as a physical activity, and to learn at least one lesson using…
Let us be lovers of the heart,
Everyday is a new start.
Let us be teammates in our shared lives,
What really matter, are our burning, inner drives.
Let us be leaders and not pleasers, for our friends and our family,
Let us stand up for ourselves, firmly yet calmly.
Let us use our intelligence with more interaction,
Let us replace seeking praise, with our own treasured satisfaction.
It's powerful that we have internal discipline,
It's important to reach and learn from, places we've not yet seen.
Who we know outside, and what we have inside,
Acceleretaes our journey, after our hearts have fully cried.
Not just people but also we are wedded, to our own inner dream,
It all crashes everytime, without steady self-esteem.
You are much more than what you think you are,
My love, my dream, you are my Ultimate North Star.
People can be great actors, especially when in crisis.
They can beat Oscar awardees in disguising what they feel, and what they show to the external world.
This is disguised as passion at times. In most cases, they are simply scared to show their real feelings to someone else. …
I grew up performing under great stress — both for education and personal life. And I felt good about myself those days.
I learned how to keep up ‘high standards’, to achieve the highest possible quality of my work.
What I missed that I was feeding my ‘inner critic’.
Our inner personal cheerleader is our first friend. It is our best friend. Unconditionally.
Like our inner critic, this voice is formed from the past memories that we chose to keep.
However, this voice plays for our team.
The voice in our head that criticises us in general is not…
“No one cares
How much you know,
Until they know
How much you care”
There are times that we feel down. In general. Just down. Why?
Irrespective of how good are we with our skills and abilities, and how good our calendar management is, there are times that we feel…
Avoid the big trap of ‘I can do everything’
My biggest distraction from an important task used to be an equally important task.
In the last two decades, I have personally interacted with more than 400 founders and they all have faced the same issues with prioritising tasks.
Only a few lucky ones amongst us have really good friends.
The rest of us, have some friends. And a few, have no friends.
Let me introduce you to a new friend. He or she may become your best friend perhaps.
But before I do so, let me ask you…
I completed 99 days of consecutive 5k runs. I still continue tomorrow.
The greatest thing about this project was that it was not a project.
I had suffered enough number of ‘giving up’ moments. It usually went like this: I have a big purpose (such as this one). I make…
If you meet a founder who say s/he has never been anxious, you have just met a good actor.
Start-ups die. Start-ups face failures of all sorts. Everyday. Start-ups want to…
