Every year we strive to be the best version of ourselves. As we approach the end of the year 2021, I’m encouraging you to try to look back on the things you set out to achieve for the past year and see how far you’ve come. Be inspired to do more. Set new goals. Join me as I’m wrapping up 2021.

Before the year 2021 started, I listed down a few things I wanted to accomplish and improve on as a podcaster, host, and generally as an individual person. For this reason, I really strived hard to achieve such things; going the extra mile when things didn’t work out as expected initially. I read books and subscribed to YouTube channels that would help me improve my character exponentially. In this episode, let me share with you my highlights, book recommendations I would also like you to read, and YouTube channels that also ultimately helped me this year.

  • Colin and Samir – These two guys are creating content for creators. So, if you’re ever thinking of becoming a creator or you are a creator, then give these guys a watch because they interview some amazing people and some amazing creators.


The thing about diving is it’s really about learning to use all of your senses, all of your abilities. And doing nine deep-sea dives back-to-back really helped me build the muscle memory that I needed to become a good diver.” – Dhiren Bhatia
