Ataraxia

Sleep inertia is where your morning grogginess lasts longer and you don't feel alert or can't concentrate. It was one such Sunday morning as I got up and I had my Coffee in the Balcony to overcome it. I had shared the RICH life equation in my earlier blog 5 AM + Hot coffee + Balcony fresh...

“Play” list

I am a big fan of music. It quenches my soul and to me, music is a reverie. I have, over a period of time, built my own playlist. Different ones for different occasions. I particularly play my running and party playlist on the weekends. In fact, I was much in awe of my existing... Continue Reading →

Kon’zoomed’ with Marie

I had published my latest blog on Oct 10th 2021 and since then I was on a journey. In my last blog, I ended with this line "Your best moments won’t come from getting a reward but from expanding the possibilities for your life." So it was time to do it. The best way to... Continue Reading →

The first is being in the office with other people, 9 to 6 every day, the second option is being miserable and alone in a small apartment. The moment... Continue Reading →

Bright light moments

I am a big fan of Prakash Aiyer's books and videos. I had read " The secret of leadership", "Habit of winning". I enjoyed seeing him on stage a couple of years back.

Apart from my parents and my close relatives working in a space agency, I felt that there were other factors too. One of my childhood superheroes was Captain Kirk from... Continue Reading →

A mindful friend

What do we like about people? This was the title of an email newsletter I received a couple of days back from Ali Abdal. I went through the contents. It covered this aspect of the overall ‘gut feeling’ of a “good vibe”, or the feeling of “we get along really well” kind of feelings when... Continue Reading →

Re’Hem’membrance

He told me to listen to the song "With or without you" by U2. Initially, I didn't pay much attention to the lyrics, I was enjoying the beats. Today when I listen to that song it brings old memories of Hem. It was on this day Sept 5th that our family lost my brother-in-law Hem... Continue Reading →

Less or More, More or less

I was fascinated by what Ben Greenfield told recently said in a podcast with Tom. He said, " Every day I am trying to be less of a boy and more of a man". He was mentioning the childhood wonder, childhood curiosity and the weird ways in which children view the world. These are the... Continue Reading →

‘No-stall-age-Yeah’ Roll

My younger daughter was counting the number of days for her birthday. While we were having a conversation she said "My birthday is 12 days after yours". I said, " First let me enjoy my birthday". She didn't expect that answer from me! I usually don't make any grand plans for my birthday. This time... Continue Reading →
