The Deferred Life Plan

by Thiyagarajan Maruthavanan (Rajan)

Rajesh’s post on this topic of Entreprenuers ( TECH TALK: An Entrepreneur’s Early Days (Part 2) ) is something that I really love. He quotes from Randy Komisar’s book “The Monk and the Riddle” in today’s post. “The Deferred Life Plan” For the promise of full coverage under the plan, you must divide your life into two distinct paths: Step one: Do what you have to do. Then, eventually Step two Do what you want to do. I had this oppurtunity to attend a talk delivered by Randy in Hyderabad when he was in India some time back. It was organized by Hyderabad chapter of TiE. Well this one thing that he said really struck me. “Entreprenuership is a social instiution which is like a magnet. It pulls towards itself the best of resources and the best of people around it.”
