When I first became a parent I had no idea how it would change me. I wanted to share some things that I have learned about life through life through the eyes of my children.
How I Spend My Day

How I Spend My Day

2022-08-0410:402

I love the fact that I have routine. Most people might find having one boring, but it works for me. That's what I would like to share today.
Boredom

Boredom

2022-07-2807:002

We don't often think about boredom leads to. It's been proven that boredom is actually a great way to become creative. This episode, I want to talk about how that works.
I want to talk about the word "yes". Why do we keep saying yes every time someone asks for something? Something we don't often think about is that whenever you say yes to something, you say no to something too.
Here are some things you most certainly have said to yourself, especially if you are in your twenties. I would like you to stop saying them.
Offering Help

Offering Help

2022-07-0707:481

I often wonder about the relationship between help and expectations. I don't understand why we help. The reason human beings are the dominant species on the planet is that we cooperate at scale. Help takes many forms that I would like to examine today.
When In Doubt

When In Doubt

2022-06-3006:04

I wanted to leave you with three questions to ask yourself whenever you are in doubt. It's important to be honest with yourself when answering.
Anyway

Anyway

2022-06-2302:44

Everyone has opinion on how you should do things, but the world doesn't need you to do things the way everyone else would. It needs you to do things your way.
It's Okay to be Ordinary

It's Okay to be Ordinary

2022-06-1607:451

I often ask myself why it's not considered okay to be ordinary. Why do we convince to believe they are losers if they are ordinary? We fixate and agonize about how to be extraordinary, but why is that?
Your Company Matters

Your Company Matters

2022-06-0908:042

I wanted to talk to emphasize how much the people you spend your time with matters. We are a culmination of the ideas that we are exposed to through the people around us.
Memories

Memories

2022-06-0108:01

This episode I wanted to talk about memories. If we had a way to erase memories, would we? I would argue that most people would want to erase bad memories because we don't do enough to create good ones.
Reflections

Reflections

2022-05-2607:002

I wanted to share some reflections of mine after living for 42 years to hopefully provoke you to think harder and make you reflect as well.
We are all chasing money, but very few of us actually know how much we actually need. How much money do you actually need to live? I'd argue that you don't need a lot. If this is true, then why are we working so hard for it.
Ending Relationships

Ending Relationships

2022-05-1208:56

I want to talk about ending relationships. A large part of life is ending relationships, whether we like it or not. I'm often surprised by how hard it is to end them, that we have a hard time accepting that they might not be good for us and letting go.
If there is one episode I think it's important that people listen to in this series, it would be this one. We constantly ask ourselves what we should do in our lives. We've been raised to believe that there's a map to our lives and we should follow it to our goals. However, those who don't have to get to a destination are never lost.
This is going to be a free flowing take on the notion of time. More specifically, deadlines. Whenever we set goals, we always have a consideration of time. What happens when we remove time as an element of our targets?
I'd like to tell you about a wonderful thread my friend Shreyas Doshi had written. Very often we find ourselves in situations where find ourselves doing a lot of work, but this hard work may not be in the right direction.
7 Life Questions to Ask

7 Life Questions to Ask

2022-04-1408:532

Unfortunately most of us are raised in a biased system. When a problem is posed, we take fast problem solving as a measure of intelligence. Brilliant people don't solve problems, they ask questions. Here are 7 you should be asking.
I want to take you back top when I was 24. I was a PhD student in the US. Everything was going according to my plan, but I still did not find myself happy. Why is it that we sometimes don't feel happiness and exuberance inspite of doing exactly what we're good at.
Scarcity

Scarcity

One of my closest friends who lives in the US and I performed an interesting experiment. We decided to stay in touch through images. One picture per person everyday. Here is what we discovered.
