IIT Memories (Part 3/5): Theme 2 — Passion Matters

March 18th, 2009 · 16 Comments

As part of my efforts to grow my involvement in cultural activities in IIT, I contested for Hostel Literary Secretary in my second semester, going up against a senior. My “infectious enthusiasm” carried the day and I won by 2 votes out of 200. As I campaigned, the only thing I had to show were ideas and a passion to engage and listen.

As an entrepreneur, whether it was selling Internet websites and advertising in the mid-1990s or selling mobile solutions now, I try and bring that same passion – because that is perhaps the only differentiator in the early stage of a venture. I have to sell a dream and get people to believe in me, since there are few case studies to go by.

    There are so many words … the taste of success, the madness, paranoidism etc., etc.,

    But i liked “infectious enthusiasm”… very positive way of defining that state of mind.
