Not long ago, I read a book called The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. The notion of the book was simple: conquer your mornings and you will conquer the rest of the day. It was easy enough to implement and effective. It’s a small book and I finished it in a couple of hours. This is a concise version of the book. The book, at times, feels like a bit pushy to join the ‘miracle morning group’ and visit his website so he can sell his other products. Having said that though, the underlying message is great.

It doesn’t really…


Imagine this: You have set yourself an audacious goal. Goals that are really outside your comfort zone. Something like waking up at 5am everyday, running 50km or even going gym on a regular basis. It’s hard to say the least. What makes it hard and how can you make it easier? I’m about to let you in on a secret: It’s not about the goal but your identity.

Incorporating a good habit is difficult for two main reasons:

  1. We change the wrong thing about the habit.
  2. We try change the habit in the wrong way.

Understand this: there are three…


My first official job was the most fun job I had — demonstrating the use of drones and remote control helicopters in a toy shop. At 17, I wasn’t going to work on the weekends, I was going to play games. Since then I worked with a plethora of retailers, charities and also worked for myself.

In any business, you could be the person designing the product or service or you could be selling that respective product or service. You could become both. …


Life can be tricky. One minute you’re on top of the world, the next you’re fighting for your life. Life is never constant. There are challenges on the way that we as Beings need to overcome. Whether that is overcoming Coronavirus, battling your emotions or being aware of your actions.

I firmly believe that when we focus on our body, mind and spirit — living life will become much easier. Don’t get me wrong, life will still have its ups and downs like a rollercoaster ride. This time though, you’ll have your hands up, screaming your lungs out in euphoria…


I had never gone outside solely to run. I didn’t see the point. Running didn’t cross my mind. To stay active, I bought a pull up station and a skipping rope. After a month or so, I wasn’t getting out of my house. I didn’t need to. I was ordering my groceries online. Since we were in lockdown, I couldn’t really just go for a stroll. Being ‘stuck’ at home took a toll on my mental well-being. The amount I was exercising at home also took a toll. I ran out of motivation so I decided to take up running…


It’s never nice to mention death. The first time someone close to me passed away was my grandmother. I was about 8. My mum was broken. It was a strange but visceral for me. Death hadn’t affected me directly up to this point. We met for the first time and it was definitely not the last.

During Covid-19 I started to read into Philosophy. Beginning with, Meditations by Marcus Aurelius and Letters of a Stoic by Seneca. It had a profound effect on me. Essentially, Stoicism is about controlling one’s life through the things that are in your power. For…


We all have read books that we did not finish. Maybe you got bored or disinterested. Perhaps the writing style did not suit you. This is a method I use to finish and remember books. This method is mostly for non-fiction books. This is my personal version of How to read a book by Philosopher Mortimer J. Adler. There are five steps to the process.

  1. What are you trying to get out of the book? Why?

What is the reason you want to read? I read to better grasp a topic I am not knowledgable about. …


The first time I got exposed to the concept of code was in 2012. My friend Paymon pulls out a thick book titled Java for beginners. I open and stare curiously at this alien language. My brain confused yet amazed. Paymon informs me that Runescape is built on this. (Yes I used to play Runescape). I asked him what this means. He said that coding is “the language of the computer.” Baffled and more confused than ever, I moved on.

Since then I have been in contact with code during university courses, startup ventures and at work. First, learning C#


My first start-up was Texmo. It was a B2B end to end logistical management tool connecting retailers and tailors. We raised £15k of grants through various subsidiaries and pitches using our university network. Harrods and other top end stores were interested in using it. The tailors end was a different story. They were content with the archaic paper based system they were using. It was difficult for them to see our vision. Texmo team disintegrated and we went our separate ways. I was still passionate about tailoring and the idea. In life, when one door closes another one opens. …
