StartUp Advantages – Found My Solace of Split Personalities!

Startups can be almost like On-ground Battles where warriors (I hope am in this category), soldiers, Army Generals come out with their weapons & unleash their true powers, diplomacies, tactics, strategies to simply come out Winning!

Everyone has a personality, a background, a history, her/his own talents + pursuits + motivations! Its exciting hence to come out a winner in a place where everyone is not fake!

Personally for me, its extremely acceptable environment because I get to be myself & not pretend to be constrained in chains which is the case with big Corporate Houses so Thank God for Startups for coming in our lives!

I know now some things clearly about myself which I will never compromise for anything/anyone :

  • Am extremely High Energy & Enthusiasm, I thrive in it
  • Am ‘almost’ passionate about my Work – I love living for it if I see a purpose in it else I love focussing on my health, family, friends, travel, photography, shopping, movies, music, etc.
  • I love being clear headed for myself + my loved ones & having simple, clarity oriented people around me who speak well, high, progressive & modern
  • I love being around self motivated, energetic & idea oriented people
  • I love new ideas, new projects
  • I have my own ways of managing things, people & situations and I like keeping it that way – Open to learnings from People I appreciate & Like but should be careful about the latter to not do it too much as well
  • I can’t take bullshit & not very good with managing that – got to working on defining the boundaries again & ensuring both parties honour it fairly
  • I tend to get self critical about my short term goals, long term purpose, even people which at best be avoided – Just #AvoidSocialism at personal level to push a greater purpose

I have also realised post working in StartUps & Corporate world for 7+ years now that the Game is all about Managing People & Yourself Basically. Deliverables, Results & Negotiation Skills, Achievements, KPIs, Projects, Ideas, Success become very subjective & actually more of a result if You manage the former Well !

One more of my recent sure shot finding are about top B-schools in the country having such different cultures of people (and the recent batches have really diluted the value) :

  • XL + IIMC have cooler & people oriented people
  • IIMA have too hard task master oriented people
  • IIMB are too serious, thorough, professional – almost similar breed to ISB
  • Rest are almost similarly inconsequential 😉

A routine can kill you out.. till you outsmart it!

One should be smart enough… not to fall in the trap…

The indications are always there to get into the same scenario… You should learn to dodge it before you fall victim to it..

Job mundane is supposed to make you dull, boring, unexciting, think nothing new… Esp a desk job where one doesn’t meet new people, doesn’t get to travel to new places… It is most natural to feel BOXED!

However, because you are smart enough to know that this is most natural to be happening… You should be smart to dodge it before hand…
Mix things up… meet your friends… spend time doing what you Love, what inspires you, draw & re-draw your priority sheet… discuss the same with 100 people… take learnings from 1000 others… Read books…
Most importantly – become a better person, more calm, cool, focussed, in control of your emotions…

Become the best version of yourself & remove all your irritants…

In my case :
Get rid of your impatience… Worrying habit, procrastination, comparing…taking work tension home… Overthinking… Living in the past, being confused…having expectations, confrontations…Responding to negativity.. non reacting, holding on…

So best version of me is CONFIDENT, PATIENT, COOL, SMILING, POLITE, LOVING, NON EXPECTING, INTELLIGENT, SMART…GREAT@LETTING GO 🙂

That’ll be good enough things to start with!
