To be true, I had never thought that someday I would be a blogger!
Writing my daily journals to sharing my posts has been a crazy journey. A journey which I am loving to take ahead.
I have been working since 2010, though the exposure to workspaces began when was pursuing my engineering as we used to go ahead with internships after every 6 months.
From then to today my even if have a look at my daily schedule there is a lot of difference just like C.S. Lewis had once quoted
‘Isn’t it funny that day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different.’
The journey isn’t like a sweet fairy tale though there were also many late nights (which still continue), tears to dry, walks around the block to try and clear my head, dead ends where was difficult to find ways ahead but that’s show it is. Isn’t it?
It’s these late nights, roadblocks which not only test us but also help us.
Don’t you agree?
I believe without struggle there is no strength.
The year 2016 is about to end since 2016 is the marked year when I started blogging and exploring my writing, I decided to begin the ending of the year with 5 lessons I have learned. Who knows that might help one learn from my experience!
Like we say sharing is caring!
Learning from your mistakes
Building a successful business is typically done by trial and error, with many hurdles along the way. And when you are working with startups and also yours was one too, you are used to exposed to people making mistakes and learning something new from them.
Like when I started I had done few mistakes too, and owning up to them is a part of the lesson learned.
As when you own them is when you can work to rectify them.
I strongly believe one cannot be perfect, one makes mistakes at some point or the other which can help to build character and to make themselves a better, more rounded individual. Make sure to look back on these mistakes and learn from them.
Don’t wait for the right time
Are you waiting for the right time to come in order to start what you want?
You expect the right time to come?
Haven’t we all heard a quote
‘Time & Tide wait for none’
Then too why do we have people waiting for the right time to come?
Have you ever thought what will happen if you decide to wait for the right time which may or may not never arrive?
When I changed my career direction many suggested me to take what I was been offered and then wait for the right time to do what I was aiming for. Today I can say one thing for sure I may not be where my dream is to be but each day I am taking steps ahead. So must you!
Always remember there’s huge power in taking action now.
Patience and flexibility help you survive the lean times.
Life is tough. Life as an entrepreneur is tougher.
When you start working on your plans they may not always work as you have expected them to. When things do not turn out the way expected or estimated I have seen many lose their patience and succumb.
But rather, that is the time when one must be patient and work out what went wrong finding the counter is difficult but if you really want to do it you will find it.
Like have you ever seen software engineers many times it so happens they write the code correctly as per the requirement but when the code is checked if it is working it provided an error. Then they need to find the mistake in the perfect looking code, it is like finding the needle in the stack of hay but they never give up.
Same way it must go for you!
Hard work will always outweigh talent.
The number-one lesson I’ve learned in my lifetime is that nothing beats hard work. Talent can take one ahead only till a certain limit.
Hard work outweighs talent and intelligence and is necessary if you want to succeed. If talent and hard work, go hand in hand it provides better results it is all about hard work and perseverance.
This not only means working hard when things are going well, but working harder when things are not. It means taking calculated risks and sticking to them, no matter how challenging they are.
Because just “having” talent isn’t enough. One needs to apply the right talent in a right way in whatever they do and applying our talents always require us to do work hard.
Talent may give one a head start, but hard work is what makes you finish the race.
Nothing is important as your health.
Never sacrifice your health for anything, not even success. Nothing is as important as your health and nothing ever will be.
This I can say because I have personally experienced what happens when you neglect your health.
It took 4 months of utter bed rest and wheelchair commute to realize the importance of your health, what I went through shook me off, it was a fight but patience and not losing hope is what helped me overcome and get back on my feet.
I would never want anyone to learn this lesson the hard way.
That’s why fellas take care!
