Habits

In this episode Ankur Warikoo shares his insights on the distinction between setting goals and establishing habits for personal and professional growth. He narrates a personal experience of waking up with a sore neck, which disrupted his workout routine, leading to a broader discussion on the pressure of goals and the resilience of habits. He argues that while goals can create unnecessary pressure and disappointment when not met daily, habits naturally integrate into our lives, making progress inevitable without the added stress of daily achievement. He advocates for focusing on building habits rather than setting rigid goals, using the example of writing a book as an illustration of how consistent habits lead to achievement over time. 00:00 Welcome to Woice with Warikoo: Insights on Life and Success00:17 A Personal Anecdote: The Lesson of Flexibility and Resilience00:44 The Power of Habits Over Goals02:04 Setting Habits for Long-Term Success02:48 The Art of Writing a Book: Goals vs. Habits03:11 Closing Thoughts and Invitation to Subscribe

Tools

  In this episode Ankur Warikoo discusses the misconception that success in any field requires the best tools, using personal anecdotes about inquiries on the equipment he uses for his content. He emphasizes that the quality of work does not hinge on having the top technology or resources but on the skill and effort of the individual. He argues that relying on tools as a precondition for success is a procrastination excuse, and true improvement and success come from honing one’s craft regardless of the tools at hand. He advises listeners to focus on improving their skills and not to wait for the perfect tools to get started, highlighting that while the right tools can enhance good work, they cannot compensate for a lack of skill or quality in the work itself. 00:00 Welcome to Woice With Warikoo00:26 The Fascination with Tools01:07 The Real Value of Tools in Creativity02:27 The Essence of True Skill Over Tools03:11 Closing Thoughts and Call to Action

50 kmph

In this episode Ankur explores the analogy of driving a car at different speeds to life and investing, emphasizing the importance of a balanced approach. He contrasts the stress-free, enjoyable experience of driving at a moderate speed of 50 km/h with the chaotic, risk-laden experience of driving at 80 km/h. He extends this analogy to investing, comparing the high-stress, actively managed investments in cryptocurrencies and penny stocks to the steady, passive approach of investing in mutual funds via SIPs. Through this comparison, he advocates for a stress-free, enjoyable journey through life and investing, emphasizing the value of patience, consistency, and enjoying the journey over rushing to the destination. 00:00 Welcome to Woice With Warikoo: A Journey Through Life's Essentials00:25 The 50 kmph Life: A Metaphor for Safe and Enjoyable Living02:31 The Fast Lane: Trading, Crypto, and the High-Speed Chase03:51 Choosing Your Pace: The Philosophy of Life and Investing05:03 Closing Thoughts and Invitation to Subscribe

Machli Pyaar

In this episode of Woice with Warikoo, Ankur Warikoo explores the concept of love through the lens of 'fish love'—a metaphor illustrating how contemporary love often revolves around self-gratification rather than true affection for the other person. By recounting a story of a young man professing his love for fish, only to be challenged on the notion that his actions reflect love for himself more than the fish, Warikoo draws a parallel to human relationships. He argues that true love is unconditional and selfless, aiming for the genuine well-being of the other person, unlike 'fish love' that is centered on what one gains from the relationship. Warikoo's reflection encourages listeners to question and redefine their understanding of love, aiming for a depth that transcends mere personal satisfaction. 00:00 Welcome to Woice with Warikoo: An Introduction 00:18 A Fair Warning: The Fish Love Analogy 00:33 Exploring the Concept of Fish Love 01:30 The Real Meaning of Love: Beyond Self-Interest 02:19 Understanding True Love: A Deeper Dive 03:09 Reflections on Love and Life 03:18 Wrapping Up and How to Stay Connected

Destiny

In this episode Ankur delves into the complex question of whether destiny exists or if individuals have free will, inspired by a question asked at an event. He shares his conflicted feelings where his mind believes in destiny due to the hints in philosophy, spiritual, and religious texts suggesting everything is pre-planned. However, his heart struggles with this notion due to a strong belief in free will, the importance of choices, and the consequences that follow. He explores the troubling implications of destiny, such as escaping the repercussions of one's actions under the guise of fate. Despite his internal conflict and the lack of a definitive stance, he invites listeners to share their views on this philosophical debate. 00:00 Welcome to Woice with Warikoo: A Journey into Entrepreneurship and Life Lessons00:18 The Destiny Debate: Exploring the Existence of Fate00:30 Philosophical Musings: Destiny vs. Free Will01:48 The Moral Dilemma of Destiny02:55 Concluding Thoughts and Reflections03:22 Signing Off: Stay Tuned for More Insights
