Fearlessness, Risk, Courage and Stupidity

On Risks Risk is much different from stupidity. Risk is not much calculated. Have courage. Fearlessness. When life gets boring take some risks. The pleasure that we get in brain in taking risks is sometimes worth the reward itself. Our brain wants to be courageous. It does not want to remain without any courage or in constant fear of every little or big thing happening around. Having courage sometimes means having the confidence in oneself to not be affected.

Joe Rogan on AI With Lex Fridman

I has been a while since I have got myself engaged into a podcast this heavy and deep and especially relevant to me. At the end of it, I was not able to believe myself that I just saw a 3 hour video with my whole mind engaged into it throughout the thing. The discussion here has been really awesome and mind opening. For we as a society, have an entirely new tech going to come which is AI.

Notes on Communication

As I was watching Ajay Banga’s interview and Ayn Rand’s interview today (videos embedded at the end of article), I realized something that should be considered very important :

The Hardest Thing Ever

The hardest thing ever is to never forget your why. the harder thing is to not get distracted. Why are you doing what you doing? And for what , for whom. This is hard. Other noises of your environment will make you move away from that. Because they don’t care for your why. There is nothing that they will gain from it. Cheers 😃

Doing Things That Matter

All of us are given approximately the same time. Then why do some people tend to deliver better results than others? Simply because they do things that matter the most to them and ignore the rest. Not everything in life matters equally. Not every decision matters equally. To-do list is often a lie. Some tasks are more important than others.

Focus: X divided by infinity is zero

A small and relatively simple concept that I have learned over the last 2 years is this. ” ( X / Infinity ) = Zero “ This is true in all the cases of real life. Effort or time divided into many different , unrelated areas of focus would result in a very small output where as concentrated efforts would lead to more and more output. If a person, puts his effort into many unrelated fields, it leads to a constant state of unhappiness and confusion.

Case Studies with the Biz Doc, Mr. Thomas Ellsworth

The whole of Valuetainment is a gold mine for any entrepreneur and would recommend anyone to watch some of their content even if they are not an entrepreneur.

Business Lesson: Employee Equity

Business Lesson : Pay equity to employees more than investor. First of all, I will start that I got to learn many things yesterday about equity. Investors are important. ( Maybe ) but they are not active in the business. Hence it makes more sense to pay equity to employees as a startup. Of-course both investors and employees and all the stakeholders ( shareholders ) must be vested. Vesting is an important contract.

HungerTorrent : Food delivery system

Introduction to HungerTorrent HungerTorrent is a social food delivery system for easy delivery especially in remote areas operating at IIT Hyderabad. We delivered food to IITH students and the food was delivered by the students of college itself who went to the city on their own. We then asked them to bring our orders from restaurants and in return they got heavily paid for the delivery. Problem The food problem at ODF, IITH is quite genuine.
