I do some of my best thinking on long drives.
A few years back, while I was doing a slow 4 hours drive, it suddenly hit me that the highway is so much like life. So many parallels, and so many lessons we can learn from them. The ideas hit me fast and furious until I had to stop the car and start writing them down.
Since then, many times when I’m on the road I come across a new parallel, a new lesson, a new idea. I have jotted down my thoughts over the years intending to publish them into a book one day, even had a major publishers who was interested to help me. I’m still thinking about it, everything in its time. I guess I really just want to share the ideas and lessons for the benefit of all, and the author stuff can take a backseat.
In my work, I’ve founded and exited tech startups. Some successful, some not so successful. I’m learning. In all my craziness busy-ness, this blog has become very special to me. It’s here that I take time to slow down and think about life and where it’s headed. To see transient things in their real context of co-sojourners, separation, and even death (I like to call it my MAJOR exit strategy :p).
It’s here that I am constantly reminded life is so much more than just career, business, and making money.
It’s here that I found you, a co-sojourner on the highway of life whom I hope will be around till the end of the journey, wherever that leads us.
Although some of the posts you see here are not exactly lessons of life from the highway in a direct sense, I always try to make my posts related to the highway. As this is the only personal blog I actively maintain for now, you’ll see that sometimes I come across something that grips me and I can’t help but blog about it here even though it may not be entirely related to the theme of this blog.
