Slow down .. its okay

I’ve been longing to write this piece for me .. yes, you heard me right, for ME. This is a post to remind myself again and again to slow down, to breathe. Because I am one of the guy, who is obsessed with speed. And if you can resonate with it. This is for you as well. Remember I include you when I say ‘we’.

Why? why we want everything to be quicker, more efficient and more productive. We rush and cram things just to accomplish more in a day. But what happens instead is you (atleast I) lose sanity over time. Our culture of urgency needs some sedative.

If you are in the midst of losing your mind. Your work is driving you crazy. Go relax, take a chill-pill. This is not fatal. Give yourself some break. Look around. Listen to birds chirping. Reflect. Appreciate. Show gratitude. Look back, remember how strong have you been. Nothing is fatal but worry. Slow down and make mindful plan B, in the end you will be sorted. Good luck!

 

 

Things i learned … the hard way

1. Life is not fair.

Believe me, you’ll be knocked down on your face, several times. Choose to dust yourself up. keep moving. You are not the only one, life f**ks us all. Some come out strong, some choose to blame. who you want to be?

Don’t try to get mercy. Stand up. Walk to rule the world.

2. No one cares about you.

Trust me. The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. It is you, who you should depend on.

Invest in yourself. Prove it you matter.

3. Stand up for yourself.

This was hardest. Why it is that we stop loving ourself. Learn to stand up for yourself and what you believe in. It is important for your being. You are important to yourself. Don’t eat yourself away, by demeaning your Self.

Love yourself. Love should come naturally. Start with yourself.

4. Small is Great.

Does magic. Think of your next big goal – the whole thing, all at once. What happens to you sanity?. Instead Start small. Do it everyday little by little. There are no shortcuts for being awesome and sane. small will become big one day. Believe that.

The gap b/w taste and skill …

Believe me it is the most inspiring piece of work, for the people who are trying to be the Best. I watched it over and over again. If you are a hustler, you’ll fall in love with the process of building your creative genius, from novice to expert. Hustle  more, do lot of work … close the gap. Thank you Ira Glass, for telling learners, which nobody else does.

 

Power of data…

I saw this  ted talk a year back and i was amazed with the possibilities data provide us to explore. I have never seen such kind of presentation of data. I was like ‘amazing amazing amazing’.  I suppose that is why people call him statistics guru, hats off to you sir Hans Rosling, you are an inspiration.

 

 

Why, How, What…

I believe these are the most important three words which can effect our approach towards product development. If you can answer them, they can make process of building anything purposeful. This is my take on it, you can have yours.

Simon Sinek  explains it with golden circle. I simply love the idea.
