Hi there and welcome!

I’m Vishal Kataria, a writer and marketing strategist. In 2014, I quit the corporate world to explore the world instead of getting stuck in a cubicle. Since then, I learned about productivity, building new skills, and entrepreneurship, from books, movies, podcasts, and my personal experience.

So why Vishipedia? Why a blog that documents my lessons?

See, here’s the thing. I’ve met hundreds of people who are sailing in the same boat as I was during my corporate life. They feel stuck and unhappy. They want to improve the quality of their lives but don’t know what to do.

Do you struggle with this too? When you reach out to someone for help, does their advice sound wishy-washy and vague, like a doctor who says, “You’re not fit, you need to get fit.” (I know that, doctor! But how do I do that?)

To make progress in life, you don’t just need insights on what to do; you also need insights on how to do it.

That’s what Vishipedia strives to do. It presents you with simple lessons from some of the world’s most brilliant minds, lessons you can apply to build a meaningful and happy life. Vishipedia is, and will remain, a compilation of lessons I wish someone shared with me ten years ago.

Today, most people subscribe to my work via email. My work has appeared on Thrive Global, Entrepreneur, Addicted 2 Success, and went viral on LinkedIn, Quora, and Medium.

I write to teach myself. Writing forces me to structure and clarify my thoughts. And I hit publish when I think you’ll find it useful. If you allow me to send you weekly emails, that’s what I’ll send you. No spam, no BS… I promise!

As a bonus, I’ll also send you a list of 10 lessons that can help you turn a normal, boring life into a remarkable, meaningful one. Just sign up below and I look forward to chatting.
