Book Journey Update: Printing, Publishing and Pre-order

Greetings! The light is at the end of the tunnel and the book is about to emerge from print to begin its journey. After the laborious cycles of copy-editing, read-aloud and proof-reading the book was sent off to the printer a couple weeks ago! Although I don’t drink alcohol, I think I could have used a strong drink that day to relax a bit and celebrate the hard-earned milestone! Now, we wait for the books to arrive, initially in my hands, and then yours. With some delays in supply chains (no surprise there I guess!) the paperback should be in …

Making a Molehill out of a Mountain

Making a Molehill out of a Mountain Chances are that at some point in our lives, we have taken a trivial challenge and perceived it to be bigger than it is, a behavior more commonly known as making “a mountain out of a molehill”. The question is can we flip this idea on its head and make a molehill out of a mountain? The simple answer is Yes. Let’s explore this further.  Of course when we are talking trivial challenges those are easy to tackle. Even when the challenge seems insurmountable at first, I have found that there is always …

Book Journey Update: Podcasts & Talks

Greetings! Things have been much of a roller coaster for me over the last 4 weeks and hence the long silence. My sincere apologies. I had to go to India for over 2 weeks to participate in family rituals after the passing of both my parents over the last 9 months.  My mom passed away unexpectedly in March 2021 and was followed by my Dad in Jan 2022. They were inseparable in life as they were in death. Sadly, I could not visit during either of their passing due to the raging COVID epidemic in India in March 2021 and …
