The most important piece of advice I’d give my younger self!

07 Apr 2021

Nearly two decades of work behind me and there are those moments where you tell yourself, “I wish I knew this ten years back.” I’ve had many such moments; Here are my top five!

  1. Fitness is not a 20’s thing. You work at it every day, it keeps you sharp, young and more importantly healthy! Trying to turn the clock at a later point in your life gets exponentially hard

  2. Cut the noise out! The world has become increasingly noisy with the pace of communication, posts & tweets. It's near impossible to focus with audible noise let alone your phone buzzing every minute with the latest news, gossip or cat videos. How you choose to use your 24hrs is usually the difference between success and mediocrity.

  3. Everyone Fails - Get over it! The best you can hope for is to fail quickly so you don’t spend too much time at it. I’ve had my share of failures at academics, sports & business. Some took a lot longer to realize than I would have liked.

  4. The difference between you now and 10 years from now are the books you read and the people you meet. What are you waiting for, get moving!

  5. Learn what you love and specialize in it. The world needs specialists not generalists! I’ve found Clifton Strengthsfinder help me understand where my strengths lay. Know what your weaknesses are and build a team around you to plug that gap.
