LEARNING IS FUN
To me failure is important and to learn is fun. The more challenging it is, the more fun it is. There is nothing I don't want to learn. I fail to understand why people hate to learn calculus, programming or organic chemistry.
How can someone hate to learn? How can someone be satisfied with ignorance??
I'm happy as long as there is something to learn, there is an area to grow. This never ending road fascinates me. I love to challenge myself and compete with myself. I aim to break my own record everyday.
10,000 hours rule
I also follow what is called a 10,000 hour rule by Malcolm Gladwell rule. To learn more click here.
Further, I also believe the brain is like a muscle which requires exercise, and I have the ability to contribute more than Tesla, Edison or Marie Curie did in their respective fields. Intelligence is a skill that can be developed and is not static. Intelligence doesn't depend on age, power or wealth, it depends on your experience and how much you actually exercised it. I believe I can be much more, it's just a matter of time commitment. This mindset is also known as the growth mindset.
This mindset I so gladly adopted was also adopted like many others like Albert Einstein. He once quoted - "Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them".
I also follow metrics to evaluate my daily learning. These metrics help me evaluate how productive my day was. I never allow myself be thrown off rails and stick to my metrics no matter what. These metrics are based on the skills and habits I'm working on. I believe sticking to these metrics is essential for achieving bigger goals in life.
HOW I DEAL WITH SUCCESS
Most importantly, I treat and evaluate everyday individually, just because I was successful yesterday doesn't mean I can take a day off. I see my past achievements as records that I try to beat everyday. I never let my pride come in the way of my progress.
As someone rightly said-
" Past success is the biggest enemy of future success".
I'm a thinker, dreamer, doer and a strong follower of stoicism. I have a passion to learn and apply that to make the world a better place.
