I wake up at 8 or so. Talk to my sister. Get ready for office while gossiping with my roomie for an hour. Rush to office. Eat breakfast. Go through the tasks I have to get done for the day.
List them on a paper and breakdown by time. Work for an hour or so. Lunch time, read something which interests me or stand in lunch time convos. Again back to work. Then probably go for a walk with anyone who is interested for coffee or anything. Back to work and try to wrap up before I go for badminton. After badminton, we have our dinner. Then take a quick standup / marketing call if any. Try to think of what to do for next day. Rush to home. Talk to parents and friends. Before sleep I work on small personal projects, lectures or tv series. SLEEP at 2 or so!
The Human Factor
(something I learned recently)
Some of us (me especially) have a habit of getting into heated debates. We try to frame and keep our points as logically accurate as possible.
But in the process we tend to forget the human factor. We don't consider the way we deliver our arguments, we ignore how badly it might damage other's self-esteem.
At the end of the day, problems are to be solved by humans not the arguments. No matter how well thought out our ideas might be, but if we forget to consider that human factor, we can kill the very drive for executing those ideas.
More than logical preciseness, its the positive vibe which inspires us to do stuff.
Most of the activities, our aspirations and desires which we want to believe are authentic to us are so much driven by cults.
When I was in school, my father always used to encourage me to think big and give very rational advice about my life in general.
Whereas my friends back then used to talk about general school affairs, games and gadgets.
In my mind I always knew my father gave very well thought out advice.
But what I used to actually do was primarily driven by the cult my friends were preaching.
Similar pattern I noticed in college and in job. We prefer living in an echo chamber which validates each other.
I thought maybe being a loner might help me get away from that echo chamber.
But even then the mind needs to hold on to something to feel insane. It is in
holding that belief and becoming an advocate of it which makes cult so powerful.
Even though some might want to drive their lives by rationality, but we are very significantly shaped by the cults and let them drive us.
For most of the history rationality has always been punished, and cults have triumphed.
