My Recent Favorite Learning — Books, Podcasts, and Much more

This post will share the most impactful learnings that I’ve had in the last few weeks, podcasts I listened to, quotes I am pondering, etc. This is a sneak peek and not a comprehensive list.

Ultimate Books I’ve Loved — Alisa Cohn, Cara Bradley, Marc Lesser

This blog post highlight the books mentioned by Alisa Cohn, Cara Bradley, and Marc Lesser on my podcast “The Nishant Garg Show”. My goal is to tease out the habits and routines from the experts in their fields. We don’t have to reinvent the same wheel when someone else has already invented it. Take the approach, tweak it and experiment with it based on your environments, constraints and variables.

Lessons Learned From Tim Ferriss and Larry King To Interview The Best In The World [Part 1]

I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I’m going to learn, I must do it by listening. – Larry King Information is useless if it is not applied to something important or if you will forget it before you have a chance to apply it. – … Continue reading Lessons Learned From Tim Ferriss and Larry King To Interview The Best In The World [Part 1]

Tools, Techniques and Basics of Podcasting to Play a Long Game

I have been asked lately several times how I started the podcast, what tools to use to record, edit, and launch, and much more. The podcast “The Nishant Garg Show” took its birth as part of my 2020 experiment in January. I wanted to give it a try for 6 episodes only to see if I really like it and want to continue. If I had set up a big goal for myself, I know I would have given up a long time ago.

The Only Book That Showed Me The New Direction

I never shared that my story was captured in a video newsletter in 2017 by Corey Wayne, and this post reveals that secret. I read this 17 times in 3.5 months by July 2017.

Understanding Happiness: I continue to be Happy in my Awareness!

In the past, I continued to be unhappy in my unawareness. Now, I continue to be happy in my awareness. I can feel negative sometimes, but those negative emotions just come and go. They don’t define me, and I am not identified by them. I just observe myself in awareness and understand happiness. If you ask me-“what name would I give to the feeling after I achieve something?” I will be honest and blunt, and at the same time- I’d just say that “it’s a thrill, it’s an emotional high, and it shall soon pass.”

Ask Better Questions!

Asking good questions interrupts our old and natural way of thinking, and create possibilities to think differently, and perhaps in a new direction.

Embrace Silence: Silence Is Not Empty

Embrace silence. Silence is not empty. No matter how many times you cut the silence in half, you still get the silence.

Mindfulness: Mental Energy Recharge

Burned-down? I have been there! If you keep burning out the energy and don’t attempt to fill it  — you will have an empty energy tank. Let’s recharge the Energy Battery!!!

Mindfulness: Prioritize Good Sleep

Prioritize Good Sleep: You can rest even when you are not done. Or, you can rest when you are completely done(dead)

Mindfulness Meditation

Meditation: The Journey of Inner Peace

Mindfulness Matters: I have learned a lot of Patience and Kindness from Meditation. Meditation is simply closing your eyes, embracing your inner silence, observing your thoughts, listening to your emotions and inner-voice, and not being identified — by any feeling and emotion.

Consistency wins over Intensity

Over a long-term consistency ALWAYS wins over intensity.
It is always easy to measure success in the long term than in a short time.
A lot of people give up on their dreams when they don’t see results in the short term.

Gratitude is a Practice

When life sucks, do you incline towards what you don’t have in life or do you just appreciate everything in life?

Choose To Grow

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We’re not human beings having a spiritual experience. Be kind and be loving.

Create White Space

At the end of your life, you won’t say- “you would have worked more, rather you would say, you would have RESTED more.”Being busy is NOT always busy. We are constantly bombarded with new information and interruptions, leaving us very little time to think about ourselves. There is very little to the no-time left to … Continue reading Create White Space

Raise the standard of your life!

Raise the standard of your life! Some people are so poor that they only have money. If you drive a small cheap car or if you drive Mercedes, the destination and the road remain the same.

Have Patience with yourself!

How poor are they that have no Patience- Shakespeare.
Patience is really a virtue and so many people are suffering through this disease of impatience.
