Delivered a 40 mt talk on decoding success at the Knowledge Community, Chennai. Focussed on three major themes:
1. Accepting the world is interconnected – and illustrated this with a railway ticket booking example!
2. Being mindful of the world around us is paramount to our success. Watch out for externalities (including 100 USD burgers!) and technology disruptions (like skype) which may render your job unsustainable/ obselete
3. Focus on the whole thing – like the buddha advices us to see the miracle in the flower blossom
Along the way, touched upon some insights from leaders, how designis driving success today and so on.
