Unpredictable 2020 has ended and 2021 has brought up new hope.
On the travel front, in 2020, after I came back from Berlin last January, I did not travel out of India.
I went to Pune, Lavasa, Udaipur, Bangaluru, Delhi, Dehradun, and Mussorie though but most trips were unlike my usual trips where I spend time with locals and explore more.
This time, the trips were 5-star trips which offer great comfort but fewer exploration options.
In the light of COVID-19, less exploration, and more acceptance was the theme of my travel.
On the health front, I added some more kilos of fat to my body (as I had a good excuse of Gym being closed) but other than that, it has been good.
On the work front, despite the pandemic, I added about 30 new people to my team in the last 6 months (both, remote and in-house), my businesses grew in terms of almost everything.
This year, I am focusing more on “acceptance” and less on “creation.” The belief is this: if the creation has to happen, it can happen via the acceptance route also. Ego is the enemy, acceptance is saying “No” to my intrinsic ego!
I am going to continue consuming more green tea and hot water throughout the day.
Trying to consciously be aware of what is happening and how I am reacting to that and more to that, realizing whether I have any need to “react” to anything that is happening?
This year, I have taken “Arthshastra” as a new subject of learning. I am looking at ancient Indian text and I am going to look at the western literature on the subject as well.
