A culture of ghosting.

The millennial culture has made it as easy as a swipe to initiate conversations. As much as we focus on starting small talks, building rapport and establishing a connection. We also need to talk about proactively and promptly apologising, accommodating differing opinions, allowing others to be themselves. However, we are terrible at mending broken-relationships. The differences, friction and arguments that were trivial a generation back, are now enough to

You may find yourself shaky, scared and stressed. You are capable to see this through. You are capable to seek and reach for the light through this darkness. You are capable to start afresh.

Struggle in itself is fulfilling.

The struggle is what we don’t speak about. It gets cut from our narratives, shrugged under the rugs and mentioned sparingly. It’s rarely worn as a badge of honour. As a way to demonstrate the price that she paid for making it big, the reason why she deserves it. The struggle is only celebrated when there is a happy ending. It’s never appreciated for its own sake. The grit

Before you go live.

Going live is exhilarating. With platforms designed to appeal to the attention of your audience, they do put you on the edge. You have only one shot at it and the feedback is instantaneous. Your adrenaline does kick in! For most, it’s too much to handle. While some thrive on it, many steer away from it. Going live is a double-edged sword. It only gets complicated when multiple individuals

A negotiator eats bargain-hunters for breakfast.

Negotiation is about creativity, your ability to recognize what could be of high-value to you and low-cost to them and some convincing skills. More than anything else, It’s about creating a win-win deal. A bargainer has only 1 factor: Price. A negotiator has multiple: Price, extended warranty, insurance, additional training, fee waiver, free installation and on. The more creative you are the merrier. Our culture encourages us to save

On vs In

Most aggressively study theory as they are usually adept with memory, recalling abilities and are logical. (Like, they know where they can score!) Many students skip the theory sections and head straight to practicals. (Because of their learning style may be more hands-on, auditory or feeling driven.) The society in-general places practicality on a pedestal and tuck aside all-things -theory (Thanks to the intellectual bullying they’ve experienced) This has

Push your voice forward.

It’s hard to get someone to open up in a studio environment. The bone-chilling AC, the overwhelming headphones, the blankness of a mic. It’s difficult to forget them all and speak as if nothing existed. Their hums, breaths and ah’s are easy to capture though. It’s easy to get somebody comfortable in their homes, at their office or even at their usual cafeteria. But it’s hard to get their

Because your work matters.

I don’t have any reassurance to give. However, if you have been adding value to people that care. If you have been making a difference in their lives through your work. If you are being missed when you don’t show up. Then, your work matters. If not, now is a good time to step back and reconsider why you are doing what you are doing. Start small, stay focused
