Forge deep connections

Reflect on what your dear ones may expect out of you and the relationship.

I had a thought that my 8 year old would love to play soccer ⚽ and work on his cubing algorithms in the first hour that he’s up. So I dedicated about 30 min every morning with my son playing. He now goes to sleep with the excitement that he gets to play every morning with me.

Old friends, the ones who no longer play an active role in your life; maintenance friends, the ones you only enjoy seeing occasionally; and growth friends, the ones who make you feel great, make you laugh and always have your back.

You should see your growth friends at least once a month, and you should try to find about ten of them; they’re the ones who’ll bring your life happiness and charge.


Dedicated to my growth friends

Note to self:

Here’s something to help prioritise what’s important in life.

Think of these as the various “accounts in your book”

The Three Categories are:

  1. “Being,” which includes your intellect, spirituality, and physicality;
  2. “Relating” – or the relationships and communities you participate in;
  3. “Doing,” which covers work, finances, hobbies, and pursuits.

Name as many “accounts” relevant to you in each category, like “Python programming” could be one account under hobbies and so on…

Think about the health of all your accounts. Which are doing well, and which ones need your attention?

Note to self:

Developing a habit of doing away with self-pity and putting gratitude in it’s place makes you stronger

If you let other’s opinions influence your actions, you are authorising them, the power over your life

Don’t hold on to bitter thoughts about someone else. You are granting them more power over you and limiting your own ability. Being forgiving empowers you.


Dedicated to my nephew Rishab Gurbani and my dear friend Arun Sogathur – A very happy birthday!
