As we draw close to the end of the year, I wanted to write one last post on this blog reflecting some highlights.
In 2018, I made countless mistakes, several judgement errors and lost my emotions on multiple occasions. These scars helped me in my journey of self-inquiry and taught me a thing or two about how to build character and purpose. Additionally, I am extremely thankful for your readership and I appreciate your continued attention to my writing. Now, below are two key questions I wanted to reflect on today:
What am I grateful for in 2018?
The habit of building and shipping simple products (3 so far)
The habit of leading weekly founder sessions at ATV (9 so far)
Come to our next event (signup here) if you are in Atlanta
The product wisdom gained through building a B2B startup that couldn’t hit Product Market Fit
The habit of daily meditation (3551 minutes so far) — thanks to the app “Simple Habit”
Learning how to master my mind and solve my problems better through Meditation Sessions (30 sessions so far)
Understanding the most important concept of compassion
The habit of writing frequently (106 blogposts so far)

The habit of keeping in touch with key people biweekly
Applying key lessons from an insightful book into my life (Atomic Habits)
What do I want to do more of in 2019?
Cherish and serve others’ needs more than mine (It’s a lofty but a worthy goal!)
Figure out new skills I can learn
Exploit my existing skills to the maximum
Expand my knowledge on human behavior
Expand my product wisdom
Develop better habits
Replace unskillful behaviors
Be a better human
In 2019, I sincerely hope to be able to share more of my discoveries (however small or huge!) with you and continue our journey. Have a wonderful new year!
