Curious to know more about me?

The truth is that our everyday habits shape our thinking.

The process has always excited me more than the end result. It is this curiosity to design, and measure processes and reflections over my journey that gave me an epiphany a few years back- thinking can be trained as a skill. Traditionally, thinking has not been treated as a skill to be learned. It is assumed to be picked up through other forms of learning.

The truth however is that our everyday habits shape our thinking. For example, a new word we suddenly speak could have been in our mind through previous reading or even hearing. Similarly, one can adopt habits based on mental models to create new ideas, improve decision-making, and communicate effectively. Through my course, articles and workshops, I am here to help you adopt habits. Your habits make you extraordinary.

“Vishakha has an extremely curious and creative mind. Very few people get the problem identification right and even fewer are able to come up with out of the box solutions for them. She excels in both . The precision of her approach to problem identification and her ability to step back and get a 360 approach to the solution is a rare talent.”

This course personally has been a great experience for me. Something that I would always treasure. After the lockdown had started, staying put at home had somewhere shaken my confidence and personal growth. But through your course, I have been able to attain my lost strengths and gain new ones. I am very happy that I signed up for it. And thank you for putting all this together.

The course is a great insight into the things that we know but probably have never given any importance due to ignorance and the rut of everyday life.
It is a great eyeopener and the habits have been put forth in a very practical way which can be easily understood and applicable for all walks of life from a child to a housewife to a professional.
