  • Ideas or Execution?

    I have always been asked this question that if I had been given a choice between being able to create brilliant ideas or being able to execute simple ideas brilliantly, what would I choose? Ideas, some say, are dime a dozen. I would disagree. Good ideas are rare, they come at a great cost. Average […]

  • StartUP!

    This word has been used and abused many a time in the recent past. While the ideas of startup culture and startup ethos might seem like a cliche, one can actually learn a lot if one gives a bit of thought to it. Startups are supposed to be a) scrappy – With a “what do […]

  • Burnout

    I have been reading a lot about stories in the past few months about some professional athletes quitting marquee events in order to focus on mental health.

  • Consistency

    Consistency is what I would define as showing up day in and day out and getting things done. It doesn’t matter that you are the best at what you do initially. What matters is that you are consistent in doing what is expected from you. Why am I talking about consistency today? I was recently […]

  • Overworked?

    It happened a couple of days back. My wife, seeing that I had been on back to back client calls(even while having lunch), asked if I could either switch off my phone or put it on flight mode, at least for the duration of the lunch? (She did take away my phone and put it […]
