121 useful tips for budding professionals for successful life


Bucket list


Meaning: a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.


It has always been my conscious endeavor to seek tidbits of wisdom in every experience, event, book or person that I came across. I learnt that it pays to remember the lesson from every circumstance of life. It really pays. Deriving the ‘Moral of the Story’ from all the life-lessons is a very lasting method that alters your mood, thought process, negativity, worry, anxiety, concern, despondence you name it, kiddo and you can get it covered. That’s because, the answers all lie within – not with your teachers, your parents, friends, society, gen x, government, the situations in your life, especially hard ones, or anything else. These people or events are merely sounding boards which act as platforms for you to realize your potential.

And so, 

Can you do the same with your life? Can you compile your own Bucket List and keep it close to your heart & eyes?

Meanwhile, have a serving or two…
