Back story: Sameer (name changed), one of our participants called me up before the start of our monthly accountability program, and told me that he won’t be able to attend the 10 minute creation and completion call since it’s in his office hours.

I said ok.

For Sameer, me and even for 99.99% of the people it’s a hard reality that we don’t have a say, a flexibility on doing something else in the timing of our workplace. That’s the occurrence that we have of how things are for most of us.

But what got me into deep thinking was…


This is quite a board question, looking from point of view of WFH

Before WFH, WFO was also not necessarily the best option for everyone, it’s not possible that you would have an office within 1km of your house, and your wife’s office, kids schools are also on the way so that you are able to drop them as shown in movies.

Iwould like to narrate an incident which happened in my life, this was when I was in my junior college and I was staying at 4-bungalow in Andheri.

It was a Dhai Handi day and since my friends from the neighborhood saw…

As per David, everyone in your house needs to have one in-tray for each member. After listening to this I really got excited, rushed to my favorite stationery store and bought 3 vertical box in-trays (see pic) one for my mom, one for my wife and one for myself. I started using the in-tray for myself diligently.

But my mom and my wife didn’t get the idea of what to do about it. In spite of me telling them twice on what was the purpose of these in-trays and what you are supposed to do with it. I.e. …

Over the years, I have been researching on the internet what’s the latest that is happening in the startup arena, my endeavor has always been to find out how I can teach students to lead a real life experience as an entrepreneur.

Dear Faculty,

On the event of Teacher`s Day, we would like to take a contribution from your end in a form of a write up to know about your philosophy and teaching pedagogy.

Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher my only job is to create curiosity in students' minds. A curious mind google, opens book, enters library, chat with professional on LinkedIn, call mentor, visit places and try out things on his own.
