Welcome to another edition of warikoo Wanderings.
In this edition, I share my new illustrated eBook, share the book that I was most looking forward to reading, my thread on money mistakes, quotes, something I am excited about. And finally a question that is one of my favorite to ask!
Let's get started!
"MISTAKES I MADE IN MY 20s" IS NOW AN ILLUSTRATED BOOK
One of my most successful twitter threads was "Mistakes I made in my 20s"
So many of those who read it wrote back saying, "this is exactly what I needed to hear today."
And frankly, nothing is more satisfying than to hear this. Thank you!
As I have done for my previous threads as well, this thread too has been converted into a wonderful illustrated eBook.
This is the best eBook that I have come up with so far.
And it needs to be shared.

Shreya Shah, who is an illustrator beyond magic, has come up with such stunning illustrations and brought life to my words. Honestly, this book is all because of her. I can stare at her art and forget what the words say.
Thank you Shreya - for your commitment and art. I truly appreciate it.
PS: Shreya and I have been working for around 4 months now, and we are yet to even speak to each other, forget meeting. I love the internet!
BOOK THAT I AM READING THIS WEEK (AND WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO)
This week, I started with the book that I was waiting for the most, this year.
Psychology of Money, by Morgan Housel.
Morgan is one of the most prolific writers on money that you will come across and I have been inspired by his thoughts, his views and his depth.
And this book couldn't have come from anyone else - except him.
He seems to understand money better than most.
But more importantly, he knows how to share it in a manner that most common people such as me get it.
This book is a classic example of how you break something complex down to something so simple, that people are left asking, how come it hadn't happened already?
Please please please - pick up this book.
It is for everyone.
And everyone needs it!
On that note, I wrote a thread on "Mistakes I made with my money" which was wonderfully received.
Once you go through these mistakes, you will realize conclusively why you need to read the book :)
PS: Amazon link to all my book recommendations
Very important PS: Last week, I recommended the book Siddhartha and incorrectly mentioned that it is the story of Gautam Buddha. It is a fictional story written at the time Buddha was living, but it isn't his story. I am sorry for my mistake - it was such a foolish one to make.
SOMETHING I AM EXCITED ABOUT
I ventured out of home and worked from an office all of last week.
After 6 months.
And it was so so much fun!
And the reason I was working from office was because I was shooting new courses.
In addition to the courses I am already running.
High production quality.
In Hindi and English.
On topics that the audiences told me I should be creating courses on.
And I loved it.
Loved working with the super smart team (who again, reached out to me through email and asked! And the next thing we know - we are working together, on a paid assignment!)
Loved preparing for the course.
I realized - I love teaching.
It gives me joy. Adds meaning to my life. Makes me feel fulfilled.
Can't wait to share it with all of you :)
QUOTES I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU
The courage to share what you know isn’t about what you know.
It is about how you feel about yourself.
We have just one life.
Why live it with just one identity?
No one is useless.
Everyone knows something you don’t.
“Now you know how it feels” is almost always the worst way to show people where they went wrong.
QUESTION FOR YOU (ONE OF MY FAVORITES)
I give you two options - which one would you chose and why?
Which option will you chose? And why?
- Option 1 gives you sure shot Rs. 500
- Option 2 gives you a spinning wheel. Where there is a 50% chance to earn Rs. 1,000 and 50% chance of getting nothing (zero).
I read ALL my emails. So please do reply - it is always so lovely to hear the responses to my questions. If I do not reply, do not feel bad. Know that I read your email. God promise! (holds skin of the neck and stretches it out, to prove the god promise!)
Until next Friday,
DO EPIC SHIT
