I'm in a different dimension listening to this song "Young Dumb & Broke" by Khalid while writing this blog. The vibe is real. In many ways, being young, dumb and broke taught me so much about humility, resilience and inexorability, until at present. Every new challenge, every single unique experience need these characteristics. It is… Continue reading Newbie’s Guide to the (Publishing) Galaxy pt1
And just like that, the unbelievably anomalous year 2020 is ending. I do not know about you, but I cannot believe that this year flew by in haste. I think that my mind is still stuck in March somewhat. Although I have accomplished and developed myself so much this year, I will bank it on… Continue reading 2020: Reemergence in a Nutshell
Things are moving so fast, regardless of the pandemic this year. Time is a funny resource of exponential changes in emotions. It brings out all the best and worst of our conquest and trepidation. When you want it to slow down, it seems to vamoose from you so fast; you pant to catch up with… Continue reading Hello, Time, My Friend.
I was looking through my notes of ideas and looking for inspiration to make sense of what I would like to write today. My friend, Karla, once said to me a year ago: "Welcome to your new journey!" during my wedding day. That celebratory life greeting is blithesome yet dreadful in a way you'd think… Continue reading Welcome to Your Journey.
2020 is, as we all know, is going down in history with a loud bang gusto in lousy reputation of some sorts. I am going through my year, and despite this callous time globally, I am grateful every day that it isn't 2019 any more because that year was majorly painful in my arse. From… Continue reading Everything is a Battlefield.
I have been mulling on how to go about writing all these valuable career experiences candidly. They were substantial turning points, testing times and reflections of how I have grown as an individual in the workplace. I gave it time, thinking that this has to be written when I am on top of my mental… Continue reading Tidbits: Working for Mansplainers
It is mind blowing for me to keep on reflecting about values and ethics and how it is being challenged in the workplace. We are advertised to do the right things, to be ethical, to live the values where we work but in reality, only the people who can sidestep the right thing are the… Continue reading The Risky Path of Doing the Right Thing.
That title is a clickbait. This has been a choir for most to talk shit about their bad bosses. This time around, I do not give the credit to a convulsion of unworthy pack of shitty people. I would like to focus on the great bosses that I have been ever so grateful and fortunate… Continue reading Bad Bosses.
I had a five-year gap of not posting anything. In today's form, that is equivalent to plethora of years beyond just five. Lots of things happened and I left the startup scene in 2017 and hopped back to the corporate scene. Looking at the relevance of my posts, they never get old. The spin is… Continue reading Revival.
In the past, I have built a great team, in my own standards- despite a mixed bag of personalities. It is not ideal as I have not hired most of them myself. You find a lot of them completely opposite of what you want to surround yourselves with, or the talents that you'd like to… Continue reading Leaders: Do You Even Deserve To Have A Team?
