Hi There – I’m Parin. Thanks for stopping by.
Here’s me in 5 seconds:
- I’m a Coach at Seth Godin’s altMBA, Basketball Fan, and more than anything, an avid Student of Life.
- Here’s what I’m doing now.
- Here’s how you can get in touch with me.
Want to learn more? Here’s me in 5 minutes:
I started learning how to program in high school. Some of my favourite projects to date include those days in Info Tech class in the late 90s and early 2000s. A site about Michael Jordan’s dunk competitions, an album cover showcasing Shaq & Kobe’s “Bling Dynasty”, and a video mix covering Michael Jordan’s six championship runs.
Looking back on it now, I just enjoyed being able to create “something”, seemingly “from scratch”, and never thought it would lead me to a career in the enterprise technology industry, with roles in Technical Support, Consulting, Solution Engineering, Solution Architecture and Partnerships.
I’ve learned a lot throughout my life and career so far. Especially after I started having deeper questions about success, life and purpose.
Along the way, I collected my favourite quotes, and created a dedicated platform to share these inspiring words of wisdom.
I also started writing in a journal. A life-changing habit that has single-handedly given me so much more perspective in life. And I can’t thank Robin Sharma enough for teaching me this powerful practice.
The more answers I uncovered, the more questions I had.
The more self-aware I became, the more I wondered about the true purpose of life.
And just like the high school Info Tech classes planted the seeds for a career in technology, this constant questioning and reflecting, planted the seeds for one my most cherished experiences to date: spending three months at a monastery in India where I observed, spoke to, and learned from, the monks, volunteers, visitors and school kids there.
It’s through all these experiences that I’ve learned one of my most valuable lesson in life:
We can learn something, from anyone: no matter what age, culture or background.
And we can learn something from any situation in life: the simple, complex, mundane, scary, flashy; whatever it is, we can learn from it.
So, if there’s one thing I’d want you to remember, it’s this: always look for the hidden and extremely valuable lessons, each day, and moment, brings.
