Tuesday Is The Deadline!

December 23, 2021

Just now I finished my last article for this year, for my Sunday Column in a Hindi newspaper. It's completion of the 7th year for this column. 52 articles a year, week after week, now amounting to about 350 of them.  

When I started, I had a career in advertising behind me. As a copywriter, I wrote TV commercials. Short, 30 second stories. So, the thought in mind, rather the anxiety, was, how would I write long articles with such regularity?

This column is about self-growth and a success-mindset. I share tips and approaches with my readers, connecting them to current news and events.

In the beginning, it took me 4 days to write an article. And then, as I wrote more and more, now I dash out a column in an hour. Maximum, two. 

And I write this column even in the toughest of situations: Brand launches for clients, long train journeys, camping in the internet-dark zones. 

Now, to the important point: Why do I don't write so regularly for my own blog?

It's the deadline that makes all the difference. An editorial team chases me for the article every Thursday. 

So, here I am creating a deadline for myself. Every Tuesday I will post an article here. That's a promise. To you. And to myself.

Today I came to know a new thing. Rather late. Every year Pantone announces a colour of the year. The colour that expresses the aspirations and realities of our times. And this year it is ​PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta!  Because it is an expression of our times, isn't it obvious that colour is created with the help of AI. Pantone is an industry authority and trendsetter in colour. So, if
