My notes from Harsha Bhogle's IIMA address

After watching Harsha Bhogle's hour long address to IIMA students, i am so impressed that i wanted to write something about it, so here it is. These are just the notes from his famous and really helpful address. 

1) Always keep your mouth shut and ears open 
2) The real question that we should be asking our self, when we set a goal, a target is, what is more important the end result or the path?
  • End gives us the vision 
  • End becomes the driver of ambition but ambitious can create anxiety and can choke you when its time for you to perform.
  • The importance of end can create a temptation to do whatever it takes to achieve it (ethics??)
  • Always adhere to ethics 
  • Make the process of achievement supreme make results irrelevant 
  • Do the best that u can and get what u get 
  • Alan Border's advice to Australian new comers "Take care of runs, dollars will take care of itself"
  • Practice to give 100% every time, so when you have to give your 100% its not new to you. If you give 100% and you still fail, then you don't have to give any excuses, because you know you can not do anything more than 100%.
  • कर्मणे वाधिकारस्ते माँ फलेचु कदाचन 
3) Work as hard as you can.
4) You don't have any control on what others are going to do, you only have control over your self. 
6) Always surround yourself with people who are better than you, need not be in your profession, learn from experts of other professions and apply in yours 
7) Happily bat at non strikers end, don't compete, help others look, better you will automatically look better 
8) If you have ego and anger on your side you don't need an enemy. These two things will consume your energy and destroy you. 
9) Talent can open fist or may be second door of success for you, but if you want to be achieve outstanding success then you need a great attitude.
10) Even with outstanding talent you will fail, and if u bounce back from failure its attitude
