What’s Your One Kick?


As we start a new year, we come up with things we need to achieve…goals, targets and the very popular  “New Year’s Resolution”. While it is highly recommended to have goals and resolutions, we can easily get swamped and have all our efforts diluted. That in fact, is the key to an average life. No one becomes exceptional by doing many things averagely.

What is the one thing you can be exceptional at? Find it and zero in on it. That’s the key to an exceptional life.

Growing up, one of my favourite actors was Bruce Lee. Apart from being a great actor, Bruce Lee was also an accomplished martial artist. I recently came across a quote from him that nailed this point: “I fear not the man that has practiced 1,000 different kicks one time. I fear the man who has practiced 1 kick 1,000 times.” – Bruce Lee

So the question is, what’s your one kick? …focus and practice it “1,000 times” instead of practicing so many “kicks” a few times.

What’s that one kick? Do all you can to find that one kick, then give your all to it! Practice it 1,000 times over and over…and even Bruce Lee will fear you 🙂

…and Part 2 here: 40 Things I’ve Learnt In 40 Years – Part 2

#17: Since you must think… Think BIG.

I’ve learnt that not many people think for themselves. That’s one thing we are too happy to outsource. However, if you are going to make your life count, you have to think for yourself…and while you’re at it, you can as well think BIG. As you think, so you are. Someone puts it this way: “the only difference between building a $500K dollar business vs. $10M is deciding. It’s that simple.” -@danmartell. You have to think…why not just think BIG.

40 Things I’ve Learnt In 40 Years – Part 1

40th-birthdayThis is the first part of a new blog series titled “40 Things I’ve Learnt In 40 Years”. I became 40 years old a few days ago. Thanks 🙂 . For some reason, I have been doing a lot of introspection. So I’ve come up with 40 of the things that I’ve learnt in 40 years. I’ve definitely learnt more than 40 things (hopefully) …but these are the ones I’m sharing. I’m shooting randomly, not in any particular order…so here’s the first 8:

#1: Silent Gratitude Is Of No Use To Anyone.

If you are grateful say it! I’ve learnt that people can’t read my mind. There are people I wish I could have been more grateful to but are not alive anymore. So, you appreciate that gesture? Say it! You like your wives hair? Tell her! You feel privileged to be loved by God? Tell Him! It is said that “your gratitude determines your altitude”. It’s impossible to be thankful and be grounded. So open you mouth and say it!

#2: A Good Name Is Still Better Than Silver & Gold.

With many people rushing to get ahead at all cost. Sacrificing their conscience for convenience. Telling themselves that “The end justifies the means”. I have come to realize that a good name is still better than silver and gold. Of a truth, a good name can guarantee silver and gold. Continue Reading…

Form Follows Function

The architects tell us that the shape of a building should primarily be determined by its intended purpose or function. Form – they say – follows function.

God is the greatest architect. He decides the purpose before creating anything. God made you. He decided your purpose before you showed up! He is not wondering what to do with you. He already has it planned. Form follows function. I want to share 3 insights about this statement: Continue Reading…
