42 to 43: Part 5

Looking ahead to the next year, there are two primary themes that I expect will dominate my thinking and time. The first is MyToday, and building it out. The potential is large in India, and outside. But we have to do lots of things right to make a success out of it. It is a challenge – a service like that hasn’t been created, and the odds that we will succeed are also low.

I know that there are many paths which will lead us to failure. At the same time, there are also a few paths which will lead us to success – entrepreneurship is about discovering and walking down those paths.

The second is going to be on how can I help play a role in building a better India. It is a question each of us should be asking, and then working out our plan of action. For me, right now, this is an activity that up about 20-25% of my time. My hope is that in the next year, if I can make MyToday a success, then I can devote an increasing quantum of time and resources to this.

Somewhere, as India goes from 63 to 64, and I go from 43 to 44, I hope our paths will cross.
