Technology helps people get better, hence people should not fear it and my job is to help people get better
Stop over analyzing.. Ideas are nothing, doing something is more valuable.. do something and learn from it… so just do it
If you are going to fail, fail against something big. That way you can overcome it better
The only way you can tweak what you are doing is by failing fast and there will be many failures before you hit it big. Get insight improve and pivot if you need to… eventually you will overcome the problem not directly but in an another way that you may have not conceived it
Don’t be trapped in other peoples dogma but crave feedback after doing something
Everyone has opinions and everyone will give opinions …. that is the great thing about us humans we like to share our ideas and opinions even when they are unsolicited. But just because someone says something is the way it is for several thousands of years does not mean you have subscribe to that … try it out and yes if you fail now you know the thinking that prevailed in the age old thinking i.e. you have a data point. Remember there was a time people thought that humans were not meant to fly… look at where we are now
Everything is just a job, nobody is going to ask you how your job was when you are on your deathbed
Being a great employee or a business owner is great. But when you are dying, how is that job going to define your existence on this planet ?
Nice people may not come out top, but jerks will never come out on top in the long run
People closest to the revenue are the last to get laid off
I have survived my share of layoffs and I can assure you this one comes from experience. People that are critical to help anyone generate revenue or rewards of any kind are the last to let go.
70/30 rule: Be 70% good at what you focus on and be exceptional… be 30% good on the adjacent areas
Do what you like and like what you do… life is good
People are inherently good and trustworthy… circumstances cause them to change their priorities in life
I am not saying that I blindly trust everyone… but I believe everyone comes into this world with same credentials as everyone from a trust and goodness perspective… but circumstances calibrate our environment for us and being exposed to much of a bad thing sometimes messes up our moral compass
These are just few things that I believe in …. appreciate your thoughts and feedback on twitter
