30 Days Of Gratitude: The Art & Science of Leadership

I’ll start with a story on the art and science of leadership on day 11 of my gratitude project. Bear with me on this one, as I put my memories together. I am a sort of a party pooper as my husband and family would tell you. I am not necessarily the most gregarious person around….

Day 30: There’s a vast sea between bosses and mentors. Anyone who has had one would agree. Who’s a mentor, you ask? For me, it’s one of those few things that I find easy to define. It’s simply someone whose time I feel greedy for. Like Sai’s. In another lifetime, Sai had said that all these…

#30DaysofGratitude: Taking Time Out To Share Happiness

Day 25: This gratitude thing is on a roll recently :-). I’m not complaining. I am here to share happiness. After my fight with Facebook and this need to get anonymous happened in 2012, I slowly built it back. Naturally, some people were sacrificed in the transfer.
