Making of a Manager 8.0

Just completed a trip with my team.

Few life lessons learnt:

  1. If being a friend interferes with your ability to become a leader, helps to be the leader first.
  2. Talk about others in your mind just like you talk to them about them.
  3. Learn to value loneliness.
  4. Before loving others, have you tried to love yourself?
  5. Only broken people break people.

Also, a note to 2-3 of my teammates whom I know I wasn’t 100% present with:

I’m sorry. I can do better. I love you, no matter how much or how little we spoke during this offsite.
Also, you are an amazing kid. Let no one else make you believe otherwise.
