Last week, I finally started talking about my OneLife Theory. Over the last couple of years, I have been writing at a high level about the philosophy itself here and the original post which became viral here, but had not put together a full framework around the same. Also, I didn’t have the guts to start a podcast or video series till this week.

On the 1st of May 2020, I finally broke the shackles. The following is the kind of content that you will be getting —

The plan is to spend 45 mins every night and drop episodes in the night almost daily over the month of May 2020 and at least 5 days a week over the rest of the time. The topics will cover a varied set of items across happiness, potential, living with purpose, living to your infinite potential etc. Most of these conversations are 1 on 1 and come straight from my own personal experience — so while it may at the outset look pedantic, it’s quite personal.

My background is very stereotypical Indian middle class rising up through the ranks and going through a crazy set of experiences in the last 40 years of my life. Here’s Episode 2 that summarises the same, so you can decide how well you relate to me.

If you want to get the daily updates across the different media channels, here are the relevant links

Choose your platform of choice from the above to follow the podcasts as videos / audios. Some of the links will be updated once I have them up and running.

I also write daily short posts on work, startups, etc. on LinkedIn here — http://www.linkedin.com/in/rajivsrivatsa

I will also be updating weekly summary of the last week’s podcasts / the overall material so that there’s a permanent place here on Medium.

Finally, I can be found on @telljeeves handle on most social platforms on a personal front on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
