Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
– Henry Ford –

Scrolling through Instagram or Facebook only creates a negative sense of competition or the feeling of void or lack off. It’s better to quit these mundane activities that do nothing for your self-growth. We as a tribe are here to grow in terms of experiences, lessons and become better versions of ourselves.

On average, commuting time to the workplace in India could range from 30 minutes to 3 hours and this is the perhaps the most unproductive time of your day. Would you rather not use this time for self-growth, better self-awareness and just an overall sense of improvement?
