  • On planting a tree

    The best time to plant a tree is always twenty years ago, and the second-best time to plant the tree will always be now. This is nearly a universal truth. The analogy here is that the only way you can live your best life possible is when you get a chance to build upon the […]

  • Identify your mountain

    There is a mountain out there with your name all over it. Now, you have just got to find it. You could choose to do anything you like with your life, it is your life and your time after all, but then, you know deep down that you would never get a sense of fulfilment […]

  • Fighting battles and moving mountains

    It is fashionable to consider oneself a Watchman or shall we say a Superhero. However, we have to understand that choosing to watch over your world means you are ready to go beyond the mundane affairs of life and embrace a life of fighting battles, putting out fires and moving mountains.

  • How to build a prosperous society

    Building a prosperous society is not as simple as flooding the community with cash. If it was a money problem, a government could easily mint as much money as it considers necessary and distribute to the poor communities, but it is not a money problem.

It is not a crime in itself, but be informed that society only works when we can get that balance of givers and takers. Therefore, we would rather claim […]

  • The (secret) key to greatness

    The key to greatness is selflessness. You achieve true greatness when you understand that at the highest levels of achievements and accomplishments, life is no longer about you. Selfishness and an unhealthy obsession with one’s personal advancement is actually an impediment on the road to greatness. It will be very hard to identify anyone operating […]

  • Success, fulfilment and making money

    There is success and fulfilment and then, there is making money. Human beings are wired to seek meaning and fulfilment in life, and while hunger, lack and scarcity might prove to be a more urgent need than fulfilment, it does not actually take much to quench the hunger pangs and begin to demand for more […]

  • Your turn to watch the World

    When one looks beyond the doomsday headlines, trending topics, the urgency and the fast pace we have come to associate with daily living in this century, the future always looks bleak. However, the reality is that the quality of life actually improves over time and, for all the complaints we make about the modern world, […]
