#untitled / 04Aug19 / 1KWAD - SoGv2-47
Finally a SoGv2.
After like 10 days.
Every time I take a break, I take forever to send these letters and it sucks. You know, one day turns into two, 2 in 3 and before you know it, it's 10 days! But then, I am back. And so good to be back to writing. I may say whatever and I may cry all I wish to but the real happiness is in writing. In seeing my thoughts on paper. Ok, a computer. Whatever. You get the drift!
So, it's a Sunday and as I write this, my guts are in my throat. Because in less than 48 hours I need to stand on a stage and deliver a lecture. Of course, I have done this before (spoken to multiple people on multiple things) and I have managed with far more hostile crowds (imagine a class full of 16-year olds) but this time it is different. I am getting paid. This is a professional gig! This could be that stepping stone to the life long aspiration of being a speaker that can make a difference to the lives of people!
Of course, I will prevail and deliver a thing that adds value to the attendees. But you can still wish me luck!
The other thing that I want to share with you is this letter that I wrote to all those people that have helped me in career over the years. I plan to send an update to them every month. The idea is to hold myself accountable to more people and thus achieve more. I've had enough of poverty. Of bank balance and impact that I am making here. Here is the link to the letter. And in case you wish to be added to the list, I will be happy to! You guys are my most ardent supporters and most vocal critics :) Please do let me know.
To be honest, apart from this one tiny update (that I am gonna be speaking on a big stage) and the monthly update that I sent out, I don't really have anything else to say.
The tap I think has run dry I think. I don't know what else to write that makes it worth reading. Maybe this is what a writer's block is? But then, I am the guy who said that writer's block is a mere excuse used by people to be lazy. Maybe I am being lazy! Maybe I need to belt out some words out of me? Lemme try. Of course not in this letter. Elsewhere.
Oh, by the way, I am in Pune on Mon, Tues, and Wed. If any of you is in Pune and would want to meet, I would love to! And if you think there's someone you know in Pune, please do introduce me to them!
Till tomorrow (hopefully),
Over and out!
As always, thank you for reading.

PS: I did not send a SoGv2 for almost 10 days and even though I reach about 200 people, I hardly (apart from 2 people - you know who you are - thank you) had anyone asking me where I was. Which is ok. I am not too stuck up on people missing me. But what I am thinking is, do I add so less value that people do not miss me? I don't have an answer. Let's see when I find one!
