I love learning new things.
The process of discovering a new concept, idea or framework, trying to understand it deeply using analogies, applying that new understanding to the things I do and completing the circle with a feedback loop that helps strengthen the understanding.
I friggin love it.
This weekend, I caught up with my friend Apurva after planning to do so since a month. We both had tons of learnings to share with each other, but the 5 minutes of our 2 hour conversation that will stay with me long after is when she said:
"Preetam, do you know about this framework, system of record vs system of engagement?"
"Nope. Tell me all about it!"
Of course, I wrote a blog post about it.

^^ The moment I read this, I shared it with Sankalp and said "bro we gotta do this someday, perhaps Dharamshala?". The next second I shared it with Prashant from Altcampus as he's already in a great position to build this (HE IS!).
I want to roll down the hills of Tuscany.
As a child, I used to laze around in huge golf courses while my dad and his friends played. I would love rolling down small hills (thankfully, didn't smack my head anywhere, or maybe I did?). This picture took me back 22 years to that exact moment and memory.
