So you’re here to find out what the deal is with this blog and why it exists, or maybe even why you should spend your time reading my posts.
Whoa, whoa. Hold up. Who are you?
I’m Sanjay, and I’m just a guy with a curiosity to learn stuff. I read a lot, and I like engaging in interesting conversations. I have a background in finance and economics, but I have wide-ranging interests, and I like to write about them.
I tell people that this blog is about self-optimisation, efficiency, productivity and philosophy. That’s just so I can make it sound impressive.
That’s cool and all, but what’s it really about?
In reality, I use this blog as my platform to write about big ideas, tell stories, rant about the mundane, engage you in discussions, and when I’m feeling particularly generous, I drop nuggets of my ancient wisdom.
I do actually believe in self-optimisation, because if anything, change and adaptation are the only true constants.
I try to be as thorough as possible when it comes to providing research-based information, and I do my best to always consider multiple perspectives and acknowledge differences in opinion. I also firmly believe that anyone who doesn’t do this is a moron (and you will find tons of these people on the Internet, it’s like their breeding ground).
What got you interested in this?
It was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, possibly the most famous polymath or “Renaissance Man”. The man could do everything. Look it up, honestly. The list is as long as my forearm. Not only was he interested in multiple fields, he was also proficient. When I first discovered this about da Vinci, I was inspired to become a polymath myself.
Since then, I have dabbled in a few fields, including music, art, acting, philosophy, languages, martial arts, personal finance, and cooking, to name a few examples.
Along the way, I’ve learned that in order to do this, it’s extremely important to constantly evolve, adapt, and improve myself.
Why this blog?
I am an incredibly lazy (read: efficient) person, who wants to figure out the easiest, yet most efficient and effective way to accomplish something in the shortest amount of time. I wanted to share my worldly wisdom with you, my reader, and thus, this blog was born out of the ashes of my old laptop that is now no longer with us (bless her motherboard).
The truth is, I want to learn from you. There’s a whole lot I don’t know, so I wanted to find a way to engage with you and begin discussions and debates that revolve around some important ideas.
That’s pretty much it, so if you find that you like the blog, follow along or bookmark it and be sure to tell your friends about it.
Do you do this weird Q&A thing in all your blog posts?
Nope. Okay, maybe sometimes. But it’s very rare. I promise.
What if I want to get in touch?
I’m always happy to meet new people and strike up a conversation. Whether you want to tell me that you love/hate me and my work, give me advice, ask for advice (not recommended), or simply to say hello, you can reach me through the Contact page.
