As Vikrant laced up his running shoes and stepped out into the cold morning air, a surge of determination coursed through his veins. That weekend wasn’t just about running a half marathon through the mountains; it was about pushing his limits, overcoming obstacles, and reaching new heights. The road to that moment had been anything but easy. He encountered numerous obstacles that constantly pushed him to his limits.

Breaking the Chains of Perfectionism: Embracing Imperfections for Deliberate Living

When we measure our lives by someone else’s idea of success, it’s like chasing a moving target. No matter what we achieve, there’s always someone who seems happier, more sorted, more richer, or more popular. This constant comparison makes it hard to feel good about ourselves. It just leaves us feeling unsatisfied. By getting caught in this cycle, I am seeing a more relatable and pressing issue. This chase puts us into a relentless pursuit of perfectionism, which is seriously harming our mental health and well-being. From demanding parents to pressure at school or work, and even social media, w ..read more

Let’s start by acknowledging something really important: people are living longer nowadays. We’re talking about outliving our parents and even our grandparents. And guess what? Our kids and grandkids are likely to live even longer than us. It’s a big deal, especially, when we are discussing deliberate living. This presents us with a great opportunity to plan for a longer life and to make our lives more meaningful and full of possibilities. It means we have more time to spend with our loved ones, pursue our passions, and create meaningful legacies. But here’s the thing: despite having all this ..read more

Many of us are caught in the relentless hustle of modern life, racing through days without savoring meaningful moments. From endless emails to urgent requests, it’s all too easy to lose sight of the true significance of our daily existence. At a general level, our daily agenda often boils down to this: Wake up, Survive through the day, Go back to sleep. This is especially true in January when we put a lot of pressure on ourselves with all the ‘shoulds’ and ‘have-tos’. We tend to lose out on the joy of deliberate living. We measure success against societal milestones and judge ourselves continu ..read more

Sometimes, the dreams we hold dear are not the ones we are meant to live. They are merely stepping stones to something even greater, something beyond our wildest imagination… I read this profound message in one of the weekly newsletters sent by one of my mentors. And it instantly took me back on my own journey. For two decades, I pursued a dream that wasn’t meant for me, shaping my career choices around it. Letting it go was challenging, given the substantial investment of time and money that I had put into it.  Society’s influence led me to conform to a path that was not my destiny. The ..read more

We often hear a lot about consistency. Yes, it is a critical driver for success. Yes, it means dedicating yourself to goals and pursuing them with all your resources. Yes, it means that you are required to have a long-term commitment along with some sort of sustained and regular effort. That’s all good. Yet, consistency has a more profound meaning. As I often ask my private coaching clients, let me pose this question to you – “What does consistency mean to you?” Take a moment and answer this question for yourself. What does it mean to you? On your work front, does it mean having daily and mean ..read more

Recently I was having a chat with a friend. Amongst the other things we were talking about he mentioned, “I don’t know about you, but I have always grown up believing that I have to ensure my future is secured.” And knowing his lifestyle, putting 2 and 2 together, this guy has grown up to be a workaholic. He keeps himself available to ensure that his job is safe. He invariably takes on other people’s work and keeps himself open even on weekends and vacations.  Do you have someone similar in your life you can relate to? You see, the future isn’t real. It is never is. It is always ..read more

Before you discard this post thinking that it’s not applicable to you, chances are that you are a perfectionist, at least to a degree. Social components such as academic performance, professional competition, parental expectations, and personal standards, combined with internal pressures of avoiding failure, judgments, criticism, and disapproval from others — all drive our need to be perfect — in one sense or another! From various bodies of research, there are five styles of perfectionism: #1 — Self-oriented perfectionism: Folks falling under this style have extremely high personal standards a ..read more
