Great Quotes

I came across some very nice quotes on the web. 

Some were really good and worth repeating.
  • Figure out what the top five most important stuff is, focus relentlessly on that and keep iterating. Less is more. -- Daniel Ek, CEO, Spotify
 My personal limit is upto 3 concurrent goals. It gets much much more complicated if it grows more than that. Have 3-4-5 (whatever suits you fine) goals that are top of the list and focus on them wholeheartedly.
  • Don’t let people tell you your ideas won’t work. If you have a hunch that something will work, go build it. Ignore the haters. -- Dennis Crowley, CEO, FourSquare
 There will always be naysayers. It's more important to believe in yourself and do what you think is right. End of the day you are only answerable to yourself, and no one else.
  • Follow your gut. it may be wrong, but you won’t regret it if you fail. You’ll regret it if you ignore your gut and fail. -- Sarah Lacy, CEO, PandoDaily
 Follow your instincts, but upto a limit. Then get some data to back your instincts. If your data and instincts are pointing the same way, then ignore everything else and just go ahead and execute.
  • Pick one thing and do that one thing — and only that one thing — better than anyone else ever could. -- Jason Goldberg, CEO, Fab.com
 This might seem to be contrary to the first point, but its not. This means that you should not multitask. Concentrate on what you are doing right now well, then when you are done with it, move on to the next thing.
  • Always be learning from others. Whenever you meet someone, you don’t want something from them, you want to learn from them. -- Brian Wong, CEO, Kiip
The secret of success is to be a perpetual learning machine. There is no alternative to learning all the time.

Review: My new ebook reader - Infibeam PI

I bought a new ebook reader. It is the Infibeam PI (www.infibeam.com/PI) . I have seen and used both the Amazon Kindle and Sony ebook reader. The main reason I selected the PI is because it was available in India. I did not have to wait for weeks to get my hands on it.

I will not go into detailed comparisons between the three readers I have used. The reason I bought the ebook is to read books. Although that sounds rather a stupid thing to say, I found some features on Kindle quite superfluous to book reading. Like the space consuming keyboard. I dont know of any book which comes with a keyboard, so why should an ebook come with one. If I have to surf the net, I will use my laptop to do it.

The whole buying process was easy and seamless. Delivery happened within 3 working days. The only regret I had was my father was not there to see this. He was pretty excited with the concept of an ebook reader and I had entrusted him with the duty of checking the condition of the parcel when it arrive…

Do something you love everyday

I keep a list of things that I like doing. At the beginning of every week, I make sure I put atleast one thing from that list into my calendar. Some of the things I have on that list are:
reading detective novels (preferably Agatha Christie!!), 

watching a detective or thriller movie, playing tennis, watching tennis!!, speaking to close friends (the good old adda), having a cup of self-made  darjeeling tea, reading investment books and reports, playing with my son, reading him storieslistening to songs from Kishore Kumar
the list goes on...
It is important to do things that you love frequently. It refreshes and recharges you.
