You put in your best efforts for months and when it receives a positive response from people it just fills you with a sense of fulfilment.

1. The job: I really love the accomplishing part of my job. You put in your best efforts for months and when it receives a positive response from people it just fills you with a sense of fulfilment. You attempt something never knowing how much it will achieve and once it finally does, there’s this awesome feeling that you’re making a small but significant difference in so many people’s lives.

While I would dare say that I don’t dislike anything about my job, what sometimes irritates me is the fact that I can’t complete detach from work. As founder and CEO, I am always connected to my work and constantly have something to worry about.

2. The weekdays: My day usually starts late at 10am and I reach office by 1pm. It involves meeting a large number of people, taking part in multiple conference calls, responding to mails and participating in brainstorming sessions at work. I finish office by 8pm and rush home for a quick dinner and spend some time with my family. Post the family session, I catch up with all the unread mails of the day. This is also the time where I reflect on things that could be done better and keep up to date with the functioning of the various teams in the organisation.

But I’m soon going to change this schedule. I’m going to try waking up early and coming to work early and going back home before dinner!

3. The weekend: The weekends are family time for me with breaks for working. I try to take my family out on weekends and spend some time in the night working.

4T.he toys: The one gadget I absolutely obsess about is my Amazon Fire TV; I would love to watch serial marathons if I had the time. I also recently bought a pair of Bose speakers. A usual day at work involves using some crazy gadgets such as Moto E, iPad, Amazon Kindle, HP laptop, HTC1. For phones I use both the Apple I-Phone 6 Plus and Micromax which makes for a nice juxtaposition between the expensive and the affordable and the Android and the iOS platform.

5.The logos: Google, Taco Bell, Zara and Infiniti G37 Porsche are brands I am absolutely loyal towards. The Coca-Cola logo feels like home to me.
