Here we begin EBR (“Engage Beyond Range“) again.
When and how it got started ?
I am not a staunch reader, neither did like writing/creative-writing, so blogging wasn’t a choice, but a miracle. Like I usually say – “doing the impossible may take time, while miracles keep happening”.
I started EBR in 2009. Having read an article on Zen Habits (by Leo Babauta) I was inspired to have a blog. EBR was technically an activity to utilize my free time, but just so that I could fill it with interesting stuff, I got involved in doing things which brought more happiness and satisfaction.
How it got it’s name ?
Around those days Anant (my younger brother) was much into doing long cycling stretches; 90kms, 110kms. And every time he would cover a longer distance, he would also challenge time. Over a bed-time chat he told me that a human body, like human a mind is usually not utilized well, one can always train it and stay engaged in activities beyond one’s regular capacity, beyond a range. That’s it, that was it!
EBR wasn’t being much attended to since last few years, to be exact, this post is happening after exactly 2 years. 2yrs is long time in a blog’s life time. Lately, it again struck me that I should revamp the template, use my idle lying domain and try to get engaged beyond range.
I’d like to extend my special thanks to
- Anant, my brother, for all his inspiring tips & motivating talks.
- My parents, for their uninterrupted & powerful support!
- Abhishek, my colleague, for setting this blog & domain and asking me to write more on productivity.
Shall keep updating this list, every week a miracle happens, every month I meet a magician.
