Off-late, I have restarted my age old habit of evening walks, and I couldn’t be happier!
1. Gives much needed mobility to the body.
2. Makes my intuition active, instead of seeking refute in the screen.
3. I get fresh oxygen!
4. Get to witness so many stories.
5. My eyes change their focus, and that’s awesome.
6. I have ideas for writing, just like this one.
7. I learn to forgive without being asked for.
8. I get the much needed me time without devices. (PS: I don’t carry my phone, nor do I wear my smart watch there.)
9. It is a discipline that is so much fun, that you cannot not do it! And that’s beautiful 🙂
- Sit on a computer and write multiple bad ideas.
- Do not get distracted by the internet.
- There is no way you do not get good ideas after an hour of sustained effort.
The best part? We have all been through this process, yet we expect a magic bullet to hit ourselves each time we don’t go through this. Isn’t it strange?
Having some weird ideas, don’t know when (or if) I’ll be executing on them, but let’s see:
- Be an English teacher to Class 11 and 12 students.
- Have a coaching curriculum online.
- Open a piano (read: keyboard) only Instagram account.
- Adopt a plant.
- Get on a counselling with millennials and GenZ (just like in my book Fit Doesn’t Fit)
- Do nothing for a week, other than reading and reflecting.
- Switch off the phone for a day a week. (Soon to be!)
Let’s see where things go:)
Btw, 1, 2, 6 and 7 are in progress – which may even lead to 5 getting somewhere in place. Let’s see!
It’s okay to have someone have different skill set.
It’s totally okay to have someone think differently.
However to have someone around you with different values is a stab on your own values.
Not going to help anyone, maybe going to rob you of your creativity, productivity and ultimately happiness.
