Speaking | Less but Better

If you’re not in the business of making the world a better place, then what are you doing with your one wild and precious life?!

Hear my philosophy

I believe the best way to learn is to share our ideas with others. And, in doing so, we get to learn the most. Over the years, I’ve explored a great deal what it means to live a life worth living.

Today, I inspire others to live a less, but better life, because I’ve learned more is not the answer. I talk about mental health, simple living, and true success. I share my philosophy with young adults in schools and colleges, executives in organizations leading change initiatives, and creative communities looking to live and work better.

The talks are given in person or online. They are designed to be 20 minutes in length followed by 20 minutes of discussion. Here are some themes that have come up in the past:

  • Why you don’t need more time
  • The only decision there is
  • Why it doesn’t have to be “crazy” at work
  • Learn the art of slowing down
  • Why money isn’t true wealth
  • How to work better without working longer (or “smarter”)
  • Why you don’t need “resilience”
  • Why your work and love aren’t mutually exclusive
  • The trifecta of life
  • Why life isn’t about “achieving” (and that’s good news)

Through these insights, I invite you to:

  • Use your time and attention wisely
  • Make space for what matters most to you
  • Do things naturally (joyfully and sustainably)
  • Discover for yourself what’s it all for
  • Transform your relationship with others
  • Grow organically by moving away from “habits”
  • Embrace challenges and thrive in uncertainty
  • Make fewer and better long-term choices
  • Lead others without having to “empower” them
  • Live a happier, peaceful, and fulfilled life

What others are saying

Rishabh’s insights into the human spirit enlighten us to what the purpose of life should be.

Rishabh can present any new concept by inter-relating various dimensions from theory and practical life.

The simple and straightforward approach to sometimes complex issues is what seemed to attract me the most. Thought provoking, wisdom invoking, and multidimensional…

Rishabh can expertly break down a complicated subject and offer real-world examples that distill practical advice and knowledge.

Rishabh’s thoughts on spirituality certainly resonate with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s.

[Rishabh’s philosophy] conveys the noble cause that he lives as part of his mission — of being useful to this world.

…It’s a bit like listening to a mentor give course correction if that makes sense. I also like to slip the lessons into conversations with those still working and to see if they resonate with them…

Rishabh is a man, who is doing his own “work,” and therefore knows a great deal about what it takes to be an effective human being.

I think Rishabh’s ideas are original even though some of the topics are very popular — he has a valuable take on them.

Rishabh knows everything about productivity and personal effectiveness.
