Delivered a 40 mt talk on decoding success at the Knowledge Community, Chennai. Focussed on three major themes:
1. Accepting the world is interconnected – and illustrated this with a railway ticket booking example!
2. Being mindful of the world around us is paramount to our success. Watch out for externalities (including 100 USD burgers!) and technology disruptions (like skype) which may render your job unsustainable/ obselete
3. Focus on the whole thing – like the buddha advices us to see the miracle in the flower blossom
Along the way, touched upon some insights from leaders, how designis driving success today and so on.

After twenty years of playing IT leadership roles, I am taking some time off to read, reflect, and share thoughts on Leadership and Technology. I am specifically interested in how we can use these to further our success. You can find my work at https://nsubra.com and 2-minute daily posts at https://angulam.in
