We only benefit by reading it. When our morale is down, it will bring us back to our path.
Leadership is ‘OEM-fitted’ in us, but seldom is it tapped into. Out of fear of failure or rejection, or lack of will to try out or experiment, we tend to do lead a life that's filled with thoughts of limiting forces and unfulfilled aspirations. We tend to believe that what is missed by us is more worthy than what we got, or what we are doing is less useful than what we should be actually doing.
This book relates to such thoughts, which become habits. How do you therefore break-into your vast reserves of talent and unleash them in your lifetime. In that sense, this book is ‘must-read’ for budding managers, talented individuals, who think they deserve much more out of their lives. Ancient tales and folklore are juxtaposed with situations from the corporate world, that help in understanding concepts quite easily.
In the early part of the book is a fabulous personification of tea bags. It is so graphically analysed that everytime I sip into my favourite tea, I recall a point or two from this story, or should I say, lesson. Simple yet telling in its content about how people behave during testing times. And further, what we ought to know about ourselves when confronted with difficult moments.
The foreword by the legendary Rahul Dravid is therefore, very apt. Through his game he symbolized that besides talent, we need to have skills to adapt, passion to stay on, and the courage the scale the highest mountains. The qualities that Dravid displayed in all formats of cricket, were outcomes of his Passion, Hunger and Discipline - PHD as the book refers to. Like that, the author urges us to write our purpose, scale our mountains and work towards our goals with a lot of discipline and be willing to make those crucial sacrifices. Success will then happen, as success does not come to the talented, it comes to the deserving.
