My Zen Path

Dear reader,

This newsletter is getting delivered in the evening today instead of morning because I couldn't get the relevant article finished yesterday owing to the Christmas celebrations. So here it is - a small piece about trying something new - might be a good idea for the upcoming new year, and it is NOT about new year resolutions. :-)

This has been a challenging year for most of the world given the unprecedented pandemic and related woes. Personally I lost few near and dear ones, and facing some tougher challenges on several fronts. Well, life happens...

I couldn't do any MyZenPath exclusive features on the inspiring people this year due to the pandemic, but I plan do them in the upcoming year. I believe the upcoming year will turn out to be a happier & healthier one for all us sentient beings. The vaccine is almost here, so we should see waning of the pandemic in the next few months. The time & space this year allowed might offer transformation for some of us... Let's hope for the best! :-)  


subscriber, I recently took this free course Resilience Skills in a Time of Uncertainty on Coursera, and I found it quite helpful. It also includes Lucy Hone's resilience story that I had covered earlier this year. See if you find this course interesting enough to enrol. 

Also, there is wonderful take on familiar 'Hare & Tortoise' fable by Eklavya Sinha that I'd recommend you to read, I have added it in the comments of Rethinking efficiency.  

Wishing you and your dear ones a happy, healthy, and purposeful new year ahead.

In gratitude,

So let's not get there... :P Here is a tiny idea instead - try something new, something you always wanted to add to your life for …
