Learning Life’s Lessons

I’m learning very important life’s lesson from past few months, Today I thought of sharing it with all my friends (Special thanks to Ishita Gupta)

  • Time is an illusion.
  • Don’t measure it by the amount of hours/effort you put in, measure it by goals you accomplish.
  • A lofty goal combined with serious effort gets results.
  • Doing things quickly and repetitively helps you get over anxiety about failure.
  • Making a decision is more important than doing things perfectly.
  • When in the dip (the tedious execution phase), remember the larger goal of your project and the value it provides to the world.
  • You don’t have to do everything alone.
  • Good things await when you take a risk (a smart one), no matter how afraid you are.
  • If you win, you win. If you lose, you win. (From Rocky and stepping out of your comfort zone.)
  • When you think you’ve reached your limit, do more.
  • You just might waste your life away in idleness and bullshit if you’re not careful.
  • Taking initiative matters.
  • Being who you want to be and who you think you really are is largely a decision
  • Flexibility is your biggest asset.
  • You don’t have to do things like everyone else.
  • Focus on what matters. Few things matter, but those that do need maniacal focus.
  • Getting rejected is OK. In fact, if you do it quick enough, rejection speeds up your road to success. (Similarly, rejection doesn’t matter until you stop trying. Once you stop trying, getting rejected becomes a big deal.)
  • Taking care of the things (and people) you love in your life matters everyday, no matter how busy you are.
  • Learn the language of the people you wish to speak to and communicate with (French or analytics.)
  • Don’t stay busy. Get real things done that matter (ignore what looks like your job and focus on what really is your job.)
