In this episode I’m talking to Aditya Shroff popularly known through his blog as “The 5AM Guy” who is also an author of the book “The Best Life Ever”. He is also a competitive runner and frequently gets podium positions in various running races. He leads quite a simple but interesting life at a farm in a Village of Gujarat. After doing his engineering from Mumbai, he got a high paying job in Germany but eventually dropped that job and came back to India to work on his passion which is writing.
In this conversation we cover a wide variety of topics – how he took the brave decision to drop the job and work on his passion and live on a farm, his creative process while writing the book. How he got the book published and even got a forward from a celebrity whom he didn’t directly know. How someone, who has a passion can convert it into a profession. All of this and much much more is in the episode.
So without further adieu, please enjoy this conversation with Aditya Shroff.
Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation by Parker J. Palmer – I listened to this book and it felt like I listened to this book too fast and should have at least listened to it with a very slow pace as Author Parker put out the fact of “what you can be” instead of “who you are” with such ease that it’s almost like a piece of cake. For some people, this book is the advise that they were waiting to listen from someone (anyone).
But when the book is over in almost a couple of sittings and then you wonder why it got over and then you relisten to it twice more.
Oceans by Seafret – I listened to this song almost 3 years back for the first time and it took me on a ride. A world where I found myself to be anything I want. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark from GoT) blew my mind with her expressions in this video.
