It’s not my bank balance or the value of my stock portfolio.
It's the number of unread messages on my primary email.
A result of mindlessly signing up for random services and subscribing to marketing newsletters to get that 10% off on the online purchase.
In simple terms, my mailbox is a junk box where things land and stay there forever.
I needed a mechanism or tool to unsubscribe from all the marketing newsletters in bulk.
As I do often, I started looking for an app that can help with the above, and I found Cleanfox.
This week we will talk about an interesting exercise that every student of Stanford University’s design program has to go through.
The year has ended and now is the season of resolutions, goals, planning, and fresh starts.
Every year I make plans or resolutions at the start of the year and never follow through with them. This year I am determined to change that. So I went on a great google search on tips and tricks on new year resolution, life goals, and planning in general and found this really great exercise/plan named Odessey Plan.

This week we will talk about a website to discover what people are asking about, a blog on muscle building, and an online service to get high-quality icons & generate color schemes.
Answer the public is a great tool for anyone doing market or customer research.
It taps into google searches (approx 3 billion every day)and cranks out useful questions people are asking around a keyword.
It generates the output in a mind map type visual, which is very easy to digest. It’s a goldmine of customer insights that you can use to create your next product or service.
This week I am continuing with my YouTube recommendation series and will talk about some must-watch YouTube videos on the topic of International Affairs.
All my recommendations are from VOX and Johnny Harris. VOX is a media outlet that apart from hard-hitting journalism, makes really great content on YouTube. You might have seen their Explained series on Netflix. Johnny Harris is an independent content creator who has made some amazing videos for VOX in the past, some of which I am going to recommend here.
Remember the time when there was a major crisis in Syria and Iraq due to…
This week we are changing up a little bit. Instead of sharing interesting websites, products, or tools, I am going to talk about some really interesting YouTube channels focusing on historical events and topics.
I consider myself a bit of a history nerd. If I had to pick a new career, I would love to be a historian. I guess other than me, only YouTube knows this about me, and based on my watching habits, it recommended a video on Mongols, which had a really good-looking thumbnail. …
Thanks to Netflix’s show Drive to survive seems like everyone is an F1 fan these days. However, I define F1 fans in below three category
“Just tell me how much time and money it will take?”
Whether you are a product manager, a consultant, a freelancer, a software developer, a designer, or an artist you encounter this question now and then when you are dealing with clients.
Any type of client work requires you to estimate the time and effort it takes to get a project done.
Everyone has their own process & methods on how they come up with an estimate. It has now become more of an art than a science.
To find a solution to better estimate a project I found Dowork.ai
This week we will talk about an email client that will increase your focus and productivity.
One thing at work, that is common across industries is email.
Most of our work-related communication occurs over email. Our work lives revolve around reading, sending & responding to emails.
Although email has made communication easy, it also has eaten away creation and work time. It is by far the biggest distraction at work.
Imagine you are working on a problem, trying to find a solution, you are in a state of flow. Suddenly, you see an email notification pop up. You click on…
Like every other year, I made a promise to myself to read more. You know the typical new year resolution that only lasts a month or two.
To my surprise, this year turned out to be different, thanks to the book I read last year by James Clear called The Atomic Habits.
Yes, the book I read helped me read more books this year.
The book is not about how you can read more, but it's about forming good habits and getting rid of the bad ones. …
If you have never been camping and want to explore the great Canadian outdoors you have come to the right place.
When I moved to Canada in 2012, I learned that a lot of people go camping and there are some amazing parks in the close vicinity of Toronto that offer camping spots.
Since I had never gone camping before I didn’t know where to start.
I had many questions.
Do I just pack my stuff and go to a park and camp?
What camping gear do I need?
Where can I buy camping equipment?
Where would I go to…
