This morning, I was reading Innercise ( a new kind of habit, reading on Kindle) and it said that routines beat size or... Continue Reading →

I tried a couple of times to reach him. His phone was coming engaged. I dropped a message, our sincere condolences. I got to know from a whatsapp group that his mother had passed away a few hours back. Finally I could get him at 15 minutes past 10 in the night. We spoke for... Continue Reading →

Change the PACE

Yesterday we were having breakfast together and my younger daughter asked us about PACE. What does PACE mean? From the kitchen, my wife explained it is speed.
