Would you offer 80% of your net worth to a friend in need?
My #1 “secret” to success is to Close The Loop, which I learned from my father. It’s become my personal mantra and operating philosophy. I probably say it fifteen times a day to myself and others: “Did you close the loop?” It means: Get the job done. And then tell the people who need to know that you’re done, in order to boost everyone’s situational awareness. Don’t keep people guessing. Don’t keep yourself guessing. Learn more.
Read Close the Loop by Raghbir (R.K.) Sehgal and yours truly. I wrote this filial biography of my father to honor him and also to share his American Dream story. My dad left India as a teenager with little money in his pocket. He worked factory jobs in the UK and eventually moved to the US. Living in the Deep South in the 1960s, he experienced discrimination that redoubled his desire to succeed. He started as a junior engineer at a firm and rose to become Chairman & CEO. My dad also shares his five lessons for success, which you can use to optimize your life. If you want to hear his story told with an Indian accent, watch this interview that my sister and I did with him.
Listen to Pedro Giraudo’s Impulso Tanguero. This album exemplifies Giraudo’s contemporary tango style which so elegantly and seamlessly crosses over to the world of chamber music. You’ll hear virtuosic musical styles that take elements from Argentine tango, American jazz, European classical music and even some Brazilian traditions. My favorite tracks are “Ávido” and “La Poda.” It was a great honor to help produce this project.
Watch Cryptopia. This documentary helped me understand the players involved in the blockchain movement and how the evolution of cryptocurrencies will likely impact our lives. You meet and understand the people behind the headlines. And yes, despite the recent sell-off, I’m still long Cardano (ADA).
