Education is limited, learning is not.

In order to grow as a person, to evolve, to upgrade to a higher version of yourself, you need to keep learning!

Learn something
– new
– different
– and, everyday!

It could be in any form – written, audio, video – either consumption on the internet, or having conversations with like-minded people, whatever suits you best.

That’s the key – Never Stop Learning!

763 followers.

What would you rather prefer?

763 followers or 18,000 followers?

The sight of 18,000 followers is appealing, right?

Let me take it to a deeper level.

What if I told you, that you’re posting content about art and 760 out of the 763 followers are art enthusiasts who are likely to engage with you, probably buy whatever you’re selling and possibly collaborate with you for something new.

At the same time, speaking of the 18,000 followers, only 262 are interested in art and 9,732 aren’t interested at all, would you care for this audience?

That is what the social media platforms are about.

The numbers are hyped up, but when you look at the reality, you understand how the game works.

Let me ask you again, what would you rather have – 763 followers or 18,000 followers?

The thing about Streaks

The thing about Streaks

• Streaks •

The thing about streaks is that it allows you to commit to something, that you have been longing to do.

Every day is a push initially to complete it.

The streak continues and eventually you do it long enough to make it into a habit.

The definition of ‘Opinion’

The definition of ‘Opinion’

Everyone holds people’s opinions on a pedestal and base their lives around it!

However, have you ever read the definition of an ‘opinion’?

A view or a judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

The opinion is not based on facts neither does the person have the 100% knowledge of your life?

Then why are these opinions so important?

Think about it.

People are scared to post.

People are scared to post.

Scenario A// What if I post this picture and I don’t get enough likes on it?

Scenario B// What if people judge me if I post that? *deleting post*

Scenario C// *Writing caption*

This doesn’t bode well in comparison to other people’s captions.

*Writing caption the 30th time*


People are afraid to open up on social media.

They pre-judge themselves based on what other people *might* think of them.

Authenticity is going down and more than that, people are backing out of posting anything on social media!

Even though it could have been super meaningful.

It might have changed someone’s life trajectory or more importantly, their own life’s.


What should happen?

People should open up and simply say what’s on their mind.

And target the audience that the content is for.

Instead of targeting everyone and worrying about their opinions.

This is Marketing by Seth Godin (Review)

This is Marketing by Seth Godin (Review)

If you don’t know who Seth Godin is, I’d suggest you Google him and find out – the guy is a legend, so insightful and brilliant, be it his books, his keynote or his podcasts, he always stuns you with his knowledge on the subject of marketing.

This is one of the best books in this category, with so much information that it’ll definitely give you a new outlook on Marketing!

What Marketing is supposed to be, How marketers should approach the market, the pointers you should keep in mind, this book covers it all.

More importantly, the book also gives you an insight of looking at the market, if you’re a consumer.

In this age of marketing, where ads are being thrown on us with selling products and services, and hardly anyone taking care of the consumers, it is important to notice which brand do you align yourself with.

The values that the brand is providing, how do the other consumers align themselves with the brand, and is there any synergy or not.

This book is everything and I’d absolutely recommend it to be in your top 10 books to read list.

Listening to the Right People!

Listening to the Right People!

With the internet in its current form, everyone has a voice, some use it positively, to impact people, some people use it to sell something, some people use it negatively, to bring others down!

Earlier, in the initial social media days, or even before that, this wasn’t the case!

When a person saw a billboard or a visual/audio show or an ad, the platform was trusted enough to trust the information too.

With social media and the uprise of people on it, there are too many voices out there!

When you seek information on the internet, you need to be self-aware of who you are, what do you seek and listen to the right person.

On a number of occasions, people are in a hurry and conclude their hunt for the information, with the first person they find and base their opinions according to a single person’s point of view too.

If you’re listening to someone, be sure of the experience they have and what their intentions are.

If you’re buying something, ensure of the brand and their approach. (especially if it’s an online service)

The key is to listen to the right people.
