The Weekly Recap


As you know, I send daily emails. If you were busy and couldn’t read everything, I share this email every Sunday with quick summaries of what I have shared in the week. Time to catch up.

Dec 14 | From ₹0 to ₹1 | Learn to master the art of charging something – anything – for whatever work you do.

Dec 15 | Smart work is overrated | I have four problems with this whole "work smart, not hard" philosophy. Hard work has mattered, and continues to matter.

Dec 16 | Handling disruptive or attention-seeking participants | The standard advice on online forums to handle such people is "Don’t feed the trolls." In live sessions, the best way to handle it is to address it head on. It is to be strong and blunt. Call out their behaviour.

Dec 17 | How I approach New Year Resolutions | Unlike everyone, I don’t wait till January 1st. I make and start putting my resolutions into action at the latest by December 17th. It’s worked well for me all these days. Like they say, if it’s crazy and it works, then it’s not crazy.

Dec 18 | Is a picture really worth a thousand words | You’ve heard of the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Right? But did you know that this saying is plagiarized?

Dec19 | Good questions deserve instant answers | Instant answers benefits both the learner and the trainer by making the learning more seamless.
