  • First four months of 2016

    Since the start of this year, I exercised 50 hours and ran 15 5ks. Most importantly, I achieved one of the two resolutions for this year. I successfully completed Chaitanya 3.0 project. More details later. I am not doing very well on the second resolution: getting the perfect abs. I am failing to eat exceptionally […]


  • There are no finish lines

    I chanced upon a great quote today. There are no finish lines. It made prefect sense. This is something I keep in my mind with everything I do. My relationships, friendships, habits, and principles are all for my life. There are no finish lines. In the other news, I tried to keep quiet in Twitter and […]


  • Master yourself. Help others.

    I recently wrote about how  what I do aligns to “Master yourself, help others” philosophy I learned from Derek Sivers.  I loved this philosophy so much that I want to make it my life motto and make sure everything I do fits into either of these buckets. This motto adds on to the four principles […]


  • Three ideas I learned from Derek Sivers

    I learned three great ideas from Derek Sivers over the last couple of months. I am very grateful to Derek for the following ideas. Hell yeah or no. /now page. Mastering self and helping others. Hell yeah or no I came across Derek’s “Hell yeah or no” idea via Leo Babauta’s tweet. I instantly liked it […]


  • Understanding GTD

    If you are keen to get better at achieving your goals in the new year, I suggest you check the free Get Stuff Done online course on YouTube. This course teaches how to apply the famous GTD philosophy to our life. It was originally offered for a small fee but the nice fella, Tiago Forte of Skillshare has made it available for […]


  • Push ups

    One of the skills I hoped to develop this year is to learn how to do push ups. I totally sucked at push ups last year despite exercising 110 hours. I just couldn’t do even a single push up on my toes. So rather than getting frustrated and angry at myself and jealous at others […]


  • Unsubscribe, Unfollow, Unread, Unfriend, Unplug.

    One thing I started appreciating after becoming a dad is the value of time. Like many dads, being the best possible hands on dad is non-negotiable to me. You don’t need a lot of money to be a good parent but you certainly need a lot of time and patience, things money can’t buy. However, […]


  • Habits and streaks

    I clearly remember that July night in 2013. I discovered Medium and was on reading spree. Just like how I used to read any and every blog in 2006 when I discovered blogging. That Medium post was titled Deliberate Practice, one of my favorite subjects. It mainly talked about two points which I can’t recall […]


  • New year resolutions

    I did not have resolutions for 2014. Instead, I decided to plant and grow few habits that are worth pursuing for years. To help me get going, I made the following three rules for myself: Base goals on Identity. Not on Performance or Appearance. Rely on Habits and Processes. Not on Willpower. Believe in Evolution. […]
