Treasure Hunting...

Life's little pleasures came our way as part of a treasure hunting program Prateek and I undertook over last sunday. It was cloudy and windy and to cut a long story short... awesome weather for a drive. Prateek and me took off on six clues to cover six check points in the shortest possible distance. We made a couple of costly mistakes and predictably didn't win.

However here is the learning in case you embark upon something similar or even life in general.


1. Prepare aforehand. Two smart people went for a treasure hunt without even a map. Its a different story that we had tons of friends to come to our aid.


2. Discuss, discuss, discuss - You need to be on the same page and think through the same things before entertaining conflicting ideas.


3. Sometimes it help to not be an enthu cutlet and plan things out before we act. All in all, we had fun, some learnings and a great drive around the city.
