About

 

January 2009, I decided for the first time, to do 2 things.

1. Make a New Year’s resolution

2. Stick to it

I decided I would do 2 new things other than work this year. And both have to lead into alternate careers. I chose – Tai Chi and Writing

Tai Chi has begun. The writing begins with this blog.

There are really 2 reasons to choose a blogging platform:

1. It will help hone my writing skills

2. I have a deep desire to see India achieve greatness and for the world to be a better place. I believe this will be an outcome of well-informed and empowered citizens, who will drive change. Hence, my attempts via this blog are to inspire and provoke thought and hopefully, action. Each blogpost is written with an objective of questioning status quo or providing my thoughts about an issue.

    That’s what mindful leadership is all about. It’s about recognizing that your leadership is in service to others. It’s about creating the space in your life to cultivate self-awareness and compassion, and leading with authenticity in a way that inspires others. Doing this, we can transform our own lives, our organizations, our communities – and the world.

    Hello Sir!

    Got this blog link from Twitter and thoroughly enjoyed reading some of your blog posts. Have bookmarked for future reading. But the most interesting part was your story on the LinkedIn profile. Truly honest and extremely inspiring for some of us who tend to give up too soon. Keep writing 🙂

    Hi Gurprriet,

    Every time I start writing your name, I check back the spelling on my phone.. Actually, I keep forgetting whether it is two ‘r’s before the ‘p’ or after.. 🙂

    I guess if you allow me, Joy is so much easier and also very positive.

    My congratulations on your Blog.. I think you would never have dearth to share knowledge and wisdom, and I would be a regular there..

    These days I have been giving gyan to my new team about ‘CHANGE’ … I start of with your ‘left thumb/right thumb’ exercise… It is really cool! and makes an impact on the lowest of intellect listeners!!!

    Do let me know when you are in Delhi.. I will come and meet you wherever/whenever..

    best regards,

    Abhiram

    Welcome to the wonderful and addictive world of blogging. I liked what I read on your blog especially the one on positive thinking and possibility thinking. And hey…I didn’t know you like to cook! Have added your url on to my list of favourites 🙂 I think this is the best way of staying connected. Let me know what you think of my blog whenever you visit it.
