The trick to a happy life is how you manage change because change is going to come whether you like it or not, whether you want it or not, and whether you're ready or not. In this episode, we talk about how we deal and cope with change. We talk about the idea of a shiver, of making systems, of the smallest possible change and more. We hope we change your perspective on change to some degree.

This is one of our most offbeat and open-ended episodes yet. In this one, we talk about wants and mimetic desire, from the ideas of René Girard, which we have been introduced to recently. In this conversation (which was interrupted thrice, actually), we talk about what we want from life, our picture of a perfect life, which parts of our lives don't come from influence and we leave you with an open-ended prompt: why do you want what you want?

Work is a doozy mainly because everyone likes working differently. A friend you start a podcast with may not be on the same page as you about communication. Your manager may not allow you enough freedom. Your company may have a lot of pencil pushers. All in all, everyone has a working style, and in this episode, we discuss precisely that: our working styles. We talk about what we enjoy and expect, what we hate, why our style works and why it may be a problem in some cases. There's lots of examples and plenty of value for the careful listener in this one. We hope you enjoy listening to it!

This very spontaneous episode starts a bit slower and speeds up along the way so bear with us! We're slowly trying to change the things we talk about on this podcast and this is a prime example of it! Let's just say we're making it more homely. Of course, with some self-improvement advice tucked in between. Speed is a dangerous drug or whatnot. If you don't jump, you remain stuck in the same place. Which one to pick, right? We've realised there's no one speed—we're always in transition. So, in this one, we talk about how (not where) we're coming from wherever we are, and how we are going forward!

Discipline, discipline, discipline. It's all we heard as kids. It's all we wish we had paid more attention to. Building habits, being more disciplined is definitely harder as an adult. Or so it seems. In this episode, we discuss our understand of living a discipline life. We also share what works for us, the tiny hacks that help us build it easily, some strong opinions included, this is an episode we did not even want to record, but recorded anyway.

To splurge or not to splurge? That is the question. In this episode, we dive into how we think about lifestyle and money. We share ideas and anecdotes, we talk about transparency with those in our lives, the upper limit of expenditure, and planning ahead of time. All that along with when it is okay to go wild with your finances. We had so much to say, the 15-minute limit had us grabbing onto so many ideas. If there's ever going to be a sequel episode, this would be the first one we talk about.

Everyone has limitations, especially two friends who sit around and talk about life every week. In this episode, we take turns to share our limitations, where we feel we can work on, bouncing ideas off each other and adding perspective for anyone who might relate. Throughout the episode, we touch upon the idea of control, urgency, collaboration, independence. We hope you find value in this joke-filled episode.

"Come on, don't bring the room down," is something all of us have heard at least once in our life when we've refused for something. If not that, then there's a different variant of the same thing—peer pressure. It sucks. All of us have felt it. All of us have done it to others. In this episode, we talk about how we've fared with this beast because it is a beast, and it makes life very very difficult for everyone. We talk about peer pressure for college, in relationships, in friendships, substances, and how no one's hands are as clean as they would like to be when it comes to it. If you like this conversation, please do give us a rating and share this with your friends. Don't force them to listen to it, though. That's not cool.

All of us aspire for better lives, and all of us have some way of measuring how close or far we are from the ideal versions of our lives. In this slightly shorter and more chill episode, we share how we rate our lives, as well as the good, the bad and the ugly of doing so. We hope we add some value to your day with the little time we take away from it.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. We make them all the time. Sometimes, they are about what we're wearing, and sometimes, they are about how our lives will look going forward. In this episode, we touch upon the latter, talking about our decision-making processes for life-changing decisions. This episode is about the crossroads-level stuff. We talk about how we quit our jobs, how staying in a bad relationship can hurt more, how fast or slow decisions can change things different. We also talk about analysis paralysis and whatnot. Overall, it's packed. We'll let you decide if you want to give it a listen. If you found value in the episode, please give us a rating and tell your friends; word of mouth always helps!

We've talked a lot about making habits; let's talk about breaking them! Breaking habits is slightly harder, especially when the habits are undesired. In this episode, we talk about some ideas which we know and which have worked for us.

All good routines are flexible. Life is serendipitous and random. We never know what we get on any day. Routines can seem stringent and tight which is why they break. In this episode, we talk about our approach to building routines, how we make them more flexible, how our routines fare with what life throws at us and how we navigate through it all. Packed with examples and echoes from noisy neighbours and their dogs, here's us talking about routines yet again! Find shownotes on letsaskmyfriends.com.

We're surrounded by information today. It is the Information Age after all. Yet, information overload is a real thing that is proving to be a huge pain point for so many people—us included. In this episode, we ironically talk about what information overload is, digital wellbeing, consumption of news, reading and countless other ways we get information today. We talk about how we manage our information consumption as well. We hope you enjoy this candid episode! As always, you can find shownotes on letsaskmyfriends.com.

We're going a bit meta with this one. Here's a podcast episode where we talk about how to talk better... or at least, the few things we've learned over the years and follow right now. Conversations are tough, and we've been on the receiving end of leaving some with a bad taste in our mouth and souls. Here's how to have better conversations, in our opinion.

Happy New Year! The last few years have been a doozy for everyone. 2021 has been a difficult year for both of us. Hence, this podcast's absence. But where there is difficulty, there is learning. In this episode, we recap on the lessons we've learned this year. We talk about control, love, hope, communication and new year's resolutions. Here's what we learned this year.

Learning is important to us, if that isn't evident with the way we approach this podcast (and our lives), but there are things we've learned about learning itself. In this episode, we discuss our approach to learning, why we do it, what are some of our hacks, how we approach the idea of learning anything overall. We really hope you take something away from this episode. We had a lot of fun with this discussion. We look forward to your messages on Anchor. Also, find shownotes on letsaskmyfriends.com.

In this episode, we get a bit personal and talk about adulthood—the good and the bad. We're both 25 now, and if there's one thing we've learned about life, it's that adulthood is a double-edged sword. We dive into what we love and hate about being 25 and how life has changed in comparison to when we were in college or even school. We hope you enjoy this conversation!
