Insight, by Prasanna Gunaseelan

  1. Average people are dedicated to leisure. The best people are devoted to learning.
  2. The ordinary wait for the energy to do a task. The exceptional do the task because that’s how they get the energy.
  3. A job is just a job if all you see it as is a job. (Work is a vehicle to promote Full Self Expression of Your Creativity+Ingenuity+Talen​t).
  4. The most precious asset of a businessperson isn’t time. It’s energy. Manage yours well.
  5. Love your family. What’s the point of getting to uber-Success yet arriving alone?
  6. From a participant at my recent Lead Without a Title event in Doha, Qatar: “The true measure of the greatness of a person is the length their shadow casts on the future.” Love it! Genius.
  7. Manners matter.
  8. If you’re in business, you’re in show business. And every day’s a performance.
  9. “Be yourself, everyone else is taken.” Oscar Wilde.
  10. To double your income, triple your rate of learning. The best invest in their professional and personal development.
  11. The primary purpose of business is the delivery of as much unusual value to as many people as possible.
  12. Use music to boost your motivation.
  13. Be ethical like Buffett. Rock the house like Bono. Innovate like Edison. Serve like Mandela.
  14. You dishonor yourself when you play small with your talent.
  15. Ideation without execution leads to delusion. What makes Google Google is not the idea behind Google but the culture of execution that is Google.

“On His Blindness”, by John Milton


When I consider how my light is spent

Ere half my days, in this dark world and wide,

And that one talent, which is death to hide,

Lodged with me useless, though my soul more bent

To serve therewith my Maker, and present

My true account, lest He, returning, chide

  4. “Perfect Moments” can happen in the least likely of places.
  5. Mastery Matters.
  6. If you’re not lifting others up, you’re bringing others down.

Au Clair de la Lune


Au clair de la lune

Mon ami Pierrot

Prete-moi ta plume

Pour écrire un mot.


Ma chandelle est morte

Je n’ai plus de feu

Ouvre-moi ta porte

Pour l’amour de Dieu.


“Rita and the Rifle”, by Mahmoud Darwish, (from Lamdi Hasan)


Between Rita and my eyes there is a rifle

And whoever knows Rita kneels

and prays

To the divinity in those honey-colored eyes

And I kissed Rita

When she was young

And I remember how she approached

And how my arm covered the loveliest of braids

And I remember Rita

The way a sparrow remembers its stream
