I was doing a startup a few years back and I ran out of money. I and my friends used to live in a nice flat but at that time we did not have chairs and tables to work from home.
Firstly, we were 6 people in 2 BHK, so it is tough to find a place for it, secondly, I wanted a routine of going to work and coming back so I can differentiate between work and otherwise.
I tried working from a couple of friends offices which were great because it’s a great way to interact with my…
Last few weeks, I got addicted to social media.
I would check Twitter, then Facebook, LinkedIn and get struck on Instagram stories, reels and posts for 40 mins, or even 60 mins sometimes towards the end.
I wanted to work on one at a time. I realised I am following 1100+ people on Twitter and I am being followed by 1100 + people too. But every time I post, I hardly get a response.
It is living shouting into the universe. You know there are a ton of people out there but you would hear back silence. …
In this pandemic, no one knows how to react to our new normal, because this is the first time we are facing something like this.
Staying at home, being scared of what will happen tomorrow for months together, isn’t our forte.
Few people can do well in this time and put inspiring posts. Sometimes it is others and sometimes it could be you.
People who are thriving should not be influenced by one another. People who are thriving should thrive because they found their routine for it. …
I have many friends whose mental sanity hit badly in 2020. Few lost focus on their work and day. Few stopped talking to people. Few felt helpless because they feared going out would harm them and started panicking even while at home.
For me, 2020 was fine because I am introverted and sitting in my room and working on my own things was normal. I used to run and cycle in the early morning. So never went into crowds. But still had ‘My Time’.
Early 2021 I had a lower back issue and stopped going out and two months into…
These will help you and others keep safe and sane
If you want to help yourself and others in this pandemic. Here are few things you could do.
1) Wear your mask(if you have to go out).
2) Stay home as much as possible.
3) Take your vaccine(if you are able to find a slot).
4) Eat healthy, exercise at home. If you don’t have a disability or medical restrictions, you should do it, at least a little.
5) Stop criticizing people whoever is posting any fun stuff or promoting themselves or their business. …
You will be remembered
I met Mani Kiran in 2013 in CIE, IIITH and he just re-joined CIE Team. A year or two before us he worked for few months in the team. Srinivas Kollipara was heading CIE at that time. By that time I and Raghu have already joined. Raju Garu has joined after a while.
I found Mani Kiran to be too fishy at first. Because he was too nice. He was too helpful. In fact, I found him to be boastful about how good he is at work and he said he can get anything done. If…
You are as good as how you keep yourself up, despite how deep you fall
Last month, if you had a camera secretly inserted into my room’s roof corner to watch me through your computer. You would see me sticking my back to my chair until I badly felt the need to sleep.
It was scary to sleep. I didn't want to sleep. The pain was exaggerating day by day.
A couple of months ago, I finished a Marathon (42.2km run). I got a bit of invincible feeling about how much I can run within this year and next year…
If one interest takes a back seat. You always have another to pursue.
Turning your passion into something that pays you is great. But, I am talking about something you do outside your work(even if your primary passion is what you are working on).
Your work has so many variables and always not in your control. Let’s say you are a marketeer, you cannot predict the exact outcomes until the campaign is done. If you are an artist, you cannot always sell immediately, even worse, it takes a lot of time for a few art pieces to sell.
