Before you do this, make sure you envision a plan for settling back into the routine. Many a goal has been missed, just because you went on a break and decided to just stay there.
For quite sometime, I have been considering leaving my job and starting my own startup. Admittedly, I have no idea what the startup will be about or whether I have the skills to really pull through such an endeavor. What I do know is that within a year, I will be giving it a try.… Continue reading Take the jump
Have you ever reveled in the joy of being able to solve a particularly tough math problem? Or looked forward to being able to understand exactly how your computer works? Or do you prefer to stay unaware and blissful about these things? Technology to you is ‘that other thing’ which runs in the background and isn’t… Continue reading Reconciling the classics and the romantics
You know what is a Kaibutsu? It’s the Japanese term for monster. Now when I say monster, you might picture a big furry green colored thing that runs around eating people (and you won’t be wrong), but the wikipedia definition of monster defines it as an aberrant occurrence, usually biological, that was taken as a… Continue reading Becoming a Kaibutsu
It’s boring to keep doing 10 pushups a day. OR to write 100 words a day. Motivation gets us started with these habits but more often they last only as long as our motivation does (i.e. not for long).

Today, I almost decided to leave my job. No, I am not kidding! I was sitting idly at my desktop staring at pictures of all my happy facebook friends. A couple of them were travelling around Europe, some were partying in pubs and others were voicing their opinions on topics I neither knew nor cared… Continue reading Another close shave with reality
