A part of Navrina Singh lives in your daily life.
You see, Singh is an engineer – one whom played a part in a development team at Qualcomm that enabled sending data other than voice over wireless networks, which helps run the apps on your smart phone.
“It is truly humbling to know that my life’s work powers your life and your work,” Singh said during her talk at TEDxSanDiego.
It was this very technology – along with her nearly 2-year-old daughter and grandmother – that also transformed the way Singh lives her life today.
It was a moment in time where Singh drew upon what she knew as an engineer and applied those principals to help engineer a self transformation – to close the gap between who she was and who she inspired to be.
In the case of self transformation, how do you analyze and measure how your mind, body and soul are evolving based on the changes you are making every day?
“What helped me was to think of myself of myself like a smart phone,” Singh said. “That each and every day I had an opportunity to release a new version of myself into this world. Each and every day was an opportunity to do over.”
In the end, Singh recognized that self-transformation is a lifelong journey, a work in progress. By giving up the idea that one day she would wake up and be a new person, her life got a new meaning.
