Ishita’s Lessons from SAMBA

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.

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.)

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.)


About Bikramjit

Please read a more interesting introduction at "About Me" section. I am an abstract thinker who is fun to watch in action. I not only generate new & better ideas for how things can be improved, but I also offer empowering courage to pursue them. I am exceptionally encouraging & motivating, and sometimes help others to reach their goals & dreams. People probably see me as a good mentor due to my patience and talent for giving direction. I am more expressive than introspective, more deliberate than spontaneous, more passionate than composed – and an assertive personality who does not hesitate to challenge anything in life!
