We all did.
Whatever number it is, be rest assure, you will not end up with 100% success. And, if you think you will, you don’t need to read further.
Setting goals, then making efforts to find a way through them, and then finally letting go of a few of them. That’s a cycle which we all go through. That’s the only way to turn plans into accomplished goals.
Despite this being the story of everyone, we fail to let go of the failures during the course of this journey. We hitch to celebrate the accomplished goals. …
Micro habits are actions that take you less than a minute to do and are simple enough to be adopted into our lives quickly. And, when these micro habits are consistent, they help you achieve a bigger purpose.
Micro habits — a 1-minute journal, 5-minute reading, 20-second calf-raises, small sips of water throughout the day, 10-minute walk, getting up 5-minutes earlier in the morning, making your bed, etc., are the kind of actions that have helped me bring in bigger and better habits to my daily schedule.
To demonstrate the power of micro-decisions and micro habits, here is a list…
One of the fascinating aspects of our lives is to begin a new habit or shed an old habit and then keep struggling with this transition.
In the last few years, while experimenting with numerous habits and in pursuit of improving my morning and evening routine, I have realized an important aspect of this game — We don’t need many habits; we need a few “Snowball” habits that can attract or improve other habits.
Though the realization came slow and late, it was an important element to play with.
Let me introduce you to five such “Snowball” habits, which, when…
Did you know that an Apollo rocket is actually on course only two or three percent of the time? At least 97% of the time it takes to get from the earth to the moon, it’s off course. Put another way, for every half hour the ship is in flight, it is on course for less than sixty seconds.

Marriages are made in heaven. Marriages are beautiful. Marriages bring two souls together.
But, marriages and relationships consume a lot of energy. Marriages bring in stress. Marriages create confusion. Marriages are tough.
And, that’s why there are:
Marshall Goldsmith is an extraordinary writer. His books “Triggers” and now “What Get You Here, Won’t Get You There”; are helping me cast a different light on my perspectives.
Let me pull out a few paragraphs from his book — “What Get You Here, Won’t Get You There.”
Habit #13 — Clinging to the past:
“Do you ever find yourself beginning a long self-serving story with a phrase, “When I was your age…..”?
“It’s no more attractive than making excuses, but we usually require a really smart person whom we love to point it out to us.”
Marshall goes on…
How many times do you hear this advice?
The dilemma is what to do after that.
A fair question. Surrounded by a life of “likes,” “Shares,” and “Comments,” it’s a tough decision to keep ourselves out from all the action. If FOMO is for real, it has to do something with human nature. And, to act against human instincts is going to be a tough ask.
Even if you gather all the courage and wisdom to act, the actual fight begins after that.
What to do with this sudden addition of extra time in your life?
I recently experimented with…
Result = Action + Now. A simple equation to keep you in motion.
“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” — Stephen King
That’s the equation that will give you results. It doesn’t matter whether the outcome is positive or negative; what’s important is that you push the idea into the real world by taking timely action.
It looks like a long list of successes.
The list of my failures is even longer.
When a failure brushes you — There is pain. There are expectations. There is dissatisfaction. A feeling to stop. A call to go back. Mind raises several questions. Why? What if? What will they think?
But all these emotions…
Which of the lives define your “Worth” — Personal or Professional?
No right or wrong here, but still, a lot of us (including me) tend to identify ourselves by the professional work we do.
Who are you?
Ask this question to anyone, and the usual answers pop up—narratives on the current job, education details, list of clients, business card and so on.
Imagine starting instead with our hobbies, side-hustles, family values, relationships we enjoy and so on.
Isn’t that a new way of defining ourselves?
A 10–12 hour day at the office, a couple of hours of commute and we…
