Ritesh Agarwal on habits that lead to success

In a tech first world- curiosity & learning is non-negotiable ๐Ÿ“• Every weekend I spend 2-3 hours downloading all kinds of consumer apps, SaaS & other softwares just to see how they all work. I also learn a thing or two from product managers around me.

During a recent webinar, I was asked an interesting question- “What are some of your habits of success?โ€ Loved the idea of success as a series of habits to be learnt, that come from making mistakes & developing new ways of thinking & doing. So upon reflection, my answer: ๐Ÿงต
1/ Make listening into muscle memory. ๐Ÿ‘‚ From customers, partners, teammates to investor groups- I worked on listening more than I speak. It makes all the difference, giving you plenty of insights to process & then improve as a leader & person.
2/ In a tech first world- curiosity & learning is non-negotiable ๐Ÿ“• Every weekend I spend 2-3 hours downloading all kinds of consumer apps, SaaS & other softwares just to see how they all work. I also learn a thing or two from product managers around me.
3/ Always keep meeting top talent; even if youโ€™re not recruiting.๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ผ I learn from the outside in, as much as I do from the inside out. Subject matter experts enrich your professional portfolio.
4/ Learn to give trust before you ask people to earn it. ๐Ÿค When a new person joins your operation, open doors of opportunity to them, share resources & communicate your belief in them.
