They sit around on their asses and do nothing… When I was a kid, my dad used to tell me to spend time thinking instead of watching TV all day. I had a puzzled look on my face. Isolate yourself from the TV and think. I looked at him blankly, didn’t know what’s this act of thinking […]

Why giving feedback is so damn hard? Not too long ago, Joe* reached out to me and asked for my feedback on his latest piece on Medium. No kidding, when I see an email like this, my heart always skips a beat. That’s how much I dread giving feedback. My fear stems from previous bad […]
