My name is Rohan. I have been writing daily notes on this blog since May 12 2008 – doing so has changed my life in more ways than I can imagine.
I value living and working with doers and contributing to problems that matter. The simplified 2 word articulation would be – People and Contribution.
My personal cultural tenets – a.k.a how I show up – are:
Integrity: I do what I say I will do
Hunger: I approach my priorities with an obsessive attention to contribution Learning: I focus on what and how I’m learning above how I’m doing
This blog is central to those cultural tenets. The discipline of writing everyday has given me the confidence in my ability to keep my own word. It has served as an outlet for my obsessive attention to contribution and taught me to contribute by first being the change I wish to see in the world. And, most importantly, it continues to inspire a learning focused mindset that values becoming over being.
In short, it has shaped me to be me.
I currently work as a Product Manager at LinkedIn working on products that help job seekers find jobs on LinkedIn. I previously worked as a management consultant working primarily across Europe and Asia sandwiched between an MBA and B. Eng from the Kellogg School of Management and the National University of Singapore respectively. More on my Linkedin – of course. :)
My wife and I became parents in Nov 2016. And, our parenting philosophy is an attempt at living Khalil Gibran’s masterpiece – “On Children.”
