Gratitude - A way of living better

Humanity has come a long way in past few centuries. The quality of life that someone in lower middle classenjoys today is far better than what even wealthiest people experienced 100 years ago.

Whether it’s access to healthcare, education,transport or even just temperature control in the room, everything’s better.

But people are more dissatisfied than ever. Wants are becoming needs rapidly.

Why is that?Why do we crib about everything when everything is becoming...

Carrots and sticks

The quality of your life depends on the reasons behind the decisions you take. If they are internal reasons, for yourself, you flourish. If reasons are external, you lose control and feel frustrated.

Your happinesswill depend on the things you do when there’s no one standing behind you, when there’s no deadline, no sticks, and no short-term incentives.

If you just wait for the deadline to come near to start work, wait for your doctor to recommend you to exercise, wait for the...

The Greatest achievement of humanity

In last 50 years, humans have gradually achieved what no other individual or entity achieved in history. It’s not modern medicine. It’s not even internet.
What we have achieved is not knowing the limits of what we can accomplish as a collective race.

The greatest achievement of the human race is not knowing limits of what it can achieve. Tweet

Product ideas - Please invent this

Someone, please make this:

Computer that plugs directly into my brain Please make acomputer device which plugs directly into my brain. So instead of typing, I just think,and it does the typing for me.

Why would I want such a thing?

The Universe doesn't care about you

Many people including Shahrukh Khan quote"When you really want something, whole universe conspires to help you get it".

That’s just baloney. The universe doesn’t care about you. Tweet

So are all these people lying? Not really. It just appears as if the universe (or God) is helping.

But why does it seem that way?

It’s been true for me and many others including Shahrukh Khan - When you really want something, events coincidentally start turning in your favor in such...

Everything Corrupts, eventually

"Sikhism is the best religion," my wife commented. I wouldn’t argue with her (who would?).

Sikhism is clearly one of the best religions. Gurudwaras,place of worship for Sikhs, are very well maintained. Followers give donations generously and regularly. You would never see a Sikhbegging in the street. Most of all, Sikhs are proud to be Sikhs, as they should be.

However, just like time heals all wounds, time kills as well. Everything decomposes eventually,even plastic. Politics...

Everything is connected - Why I write about topics unrelated to learning and education

I have been counseled many times to focus on learning and education and not write about anything else. The argument is that it confuses readers and doesn’t give you atargetedaudience.

I agree.

In any MBA program or a marketing course/post/seminar,one of the very first things they teach is the importance of identifying your audience. Once you identify your audience, it’s easier to set the tone of your message, write with more focus, and spend ad money to a particular target...
