Have you ever come across Déjà vu situation in your real life? Something that looks familiar or resembles with something that you have experienced or thought earlier. I have gone through this experience multiple times when I see thoughts becoming a reality. I cursed myself for not allowing enough time to nurture my thoughts and possibilities of making it a reality.
Our brain is a big chatterbox. It’s working 24×7, continuously analyzing what we see, hear, smell, touch or feel – against our existing knowledge. Some thoughts vanish the moment they appear. Some thoughts linger around and some we decide to carry forward.
“Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.” —Jack Welch
Don’t worry. This is not a business blog. I took this quote to explain my dilemma. My brain continues to churn thoughts for me however I’ve not maintained a record of it. I never tried to articulate these thoughts to anyone nor I’ve done anything about them. I do share these thoughts with my close friends or with my better half. However, till date these discussions remain as a passing comment and never came across as my dreams.
Many times, I kindle my thoughts for a couple of minutes and pushed it aside in one of the cold storage in my memory cell. Only to recall after many weeks or months or possibly after many years, realizing someone else now being considered as a pioneer for the same exact thought. That ‘someone’ being considered as a pioneer because that person not only kindled similar thought but kept working on it. Kept on validating it for multiple possibilities. Or kept on nurturing it to make it a reality. That person decided not to push that specific thought aside but decided to continue to play with it.
I blamed myself multiple times for not acting on my thoughts in a timely manner. Finally, I decided to do something about it. First and foremost, I decided to keep record about my ideas. At this moment, blogging appears to be the right choice for recording my ideas.
I’m hoping to document my ideas so that I can revisit them or maybe pursue to bring it to realities. Or praise someone whose ideas may be similar to mine and have managed to execute.
Please note that I’m not a trained Archaeologist, Historian, Lawyer or acclaimed scientist or professor. I’m a simple person dealing with day to day changes in technology, business models, politics or in general changes in the world around me. I’m trying my best to interpret the signals and visualize what may be our future.
This blog is a collection of my thoughts focusing on our future, innovation and possibilities.

So let’s see if I can spoil the party 🙂
