Workshop Objectives

This workshop has two objectives:

  1. To rocket propel your business or career to heights you never dreamed of, and
  2. Bring joy flooding into your life. Not just smiles but a pervasive, deep seated sense of wellbeing that is constantly with you as a radiant presence.

On Growth

Most people believe that growth happens slowly and with much effort. There is a ‘ladder of success’ and you climb it rung by rung. It takes time and hard work.

Not true.

You can leapfrog rungs on the ‘ladder of success’ and do it again. And again.

You don’t have to ‘work harder’. In fact, doing this can actually set you back.

You don’t have to ‘work smarter’. Working smarter is good, but it is overrated.

You don’t have to ‘manage your time better.’ After a point you find that the time you spend managing your time better sets you behind where you were.

You have to ‘think differently.’ Radically differently.

My friend Price Pritchett, in his wonderful book You Squared, gives the example of a fly banging against the glass of the windowpane in a futile attempt to escape. Trying harder will simply knock the fly out faster.

Ten steps away is an open door. All the fly has to do is change direction and it can be free in an instant.

Think of your life. You can get rid of stress. And achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Learn about the mental models you use that are actually prison walls locking you in.

As Mark Twain said, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”

On Serenity and Joy

If I were to ask you, “Are you happy?”, you would probably say, “Yes.”

But you set the bar too low.

What you are really saying is that there is nothing actively bothering you right now and there are some things you look forward to.

Consider this vision of life from the syllabus of my course, Creativity and Personal Mastery. It was one of the most popular and highest rated courses at many of the world’s top business schools:

“You wake up in the morning suffused with an ineffable feeling of joy, a deep sense of well being. You go to work, to a job you love so much that you would pay for the privilege of doing it. You labor intently but are so focused that time flies by unnoticed. At the end of the day you are invigorated, brimming with more energy than when you started. You have a penetrating awareness of the course you are charting, a clear knowledge of your place in the scheme of the universe. Your work feeds this, is congruent with it and brings great contentment and peace.

You face obstacles, big ones and small ones, perhaps more than your fair share of them.

You understand very clearly that their purpose is to test your mettle, to bring out the best in you even as the abrasive whetting stone serves to finely hone the knife. So, you plow on indomitably, sure of what you want to achieve and yet unconcerned about results.

At times it seems as if you are riding on the crest of a powerful tidal wave, as if the universe itself is helping you, working with you and through you. Locked doors open mysteriously.

Incredibly fortuitous coincidences occur. You accomplish prodigious feats, feats you would never have imagined yourself capable of. Yet it would have been perfectly okay if you had not accomplished them. You accept accolades gracefully but are not swayed by them because you march to the beat of your own drummer.

Your personal life is intensely fulfilling. You are active in a variety of civic, charitable and political causes and successful in all of them. Your spouse is perfectly compatible with you, a true helpmate in every sense of the word. You beget progeny and your offspring bring great satisfaction. You have a sense of trusteeship towards them – they do not belong to you but are a gift of the universe.

So it goes on year after year, each day more perfect than the one before. Your gratitude is so intense that at times it is like a physical ache. Your heart bursts as you thank the universe. What have you done to deserve such good fortune? And when the time comes for you to depart, you do so joyfully and in peace, achieving identification with the Cosmic Principle, that incredible merging which has been called many things by many peoples but is ultimately indescribable, far beyond the feeble capabilities of language.”


A life such as described above is your birthright. You have to reach out and claim it. Will you succeed? I do not know. I do know that the first step towards getting there is recognizing that you want to get there. It is very important that you desperately want to reach the goal. It is equally important that you not particularly care whether you do or do not.

If this sounds like a paradox to you, you are correct.

It is.

Remember that all paradoxes are resolved as you reach higher levels of understanding, even the ultimate paradox of all – that which we call ‘life.’

He was a desperate seeker and he banged on the door of the master. “I want to be enlightened,” he gasped, “If I stay as your disciple, how long will it take?”

The master surveyed the young man. He had a strong physique and the inner restlessness that drove him was almost palpable. A good candidate. “Ten years,” said the master.

The youth wilted as if struck with an ax. For a few minutes he stood with head bowed, then he looked up. “If I work night and day,” he asked fiercely, “If I do without sleep and do twice what your other disciples do, then how long will it take for me to become enlightened?”

“Twenty years,” said the master calmly.

 So perplexed was the youth and so earnest his demeanor that the sage relented and explained, “When you have one eye so firmly fixed on the goal, you have but one eye left to find the way.”


Your life is a creation. It is a work of art no less than the paintings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel or the giant statue of Gomateshwara at Sravanabelgola. You are the artist.

All works of art first come into being in the mind of the craftsman.

This workshop is an invitation to you to explore and define what you want to create.
