Title: Sachin Dev Duggal Engineer AI Secret Mantras of Life

Sachin Dev Duggal Engineer AI Secret Mantras of
Sachin Dev Duggal Serial Entrepreneur of the
Year Stands By These 7 Secrets to Life Sachin
Dev Duggal Engineer AI entrepreneurial
achievements are known worldwide, and not only
because he operates from three cities spread
around the globe. His phones field notifications
constantly whether hes working from London, Los
Angeles, or Delhi. That happens when youve been
building businesses since the age of 15.
Even before starting his first business, Sachin
Dev Duggal was on a mission to create change. At
the age of 12, he went on stage in front of 1200
people and the world media to demand something be
done about the state of the environment. He
worked for the United Nations and helped write
the Declaration of Youth Rights before he
completed his first degree. He developed a
problem-solving mindset early on at the age of 14
when he broke his mothers computer. Following
her ominous warning Fix it, or else, Sachin
Dev Duggal quickly learned to tinker with basic
programming. He restored her computer, built his
own the following year, then built and sold them
to family and friends soon after. Today Sachin
Dev Duggal Engineer AI brilliant mind is far from
unappreciated. Over the years since first fixing
his mothers computer, hes carved the way in
the world of software and cloud computing. His
insistence on finding the most efficient solution
to a problem, one problem at a time, secures his
success. To put it simply, Sachin Dev Duggal is
an innovative serial entrepreneur. His wide
range of experience, though, equips him with a
unique insight on life that many entrepreneurs
lack. He believes in projects that allow him the
opportunity to benefit the world at large.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with
Sachin Dev Duggal and asked him for a few
insights that define his work process. Our
conversation helped me uncover the ways he looks
at life to keep him motivated and moving
forward. Havent Heard of Sachin Dev
Duggal? Following his computer-building
business, he shifted into software development
and investment banking during his late teenage
years. Sachin Duggal then co-founded nivio in
August of 2004, which became a disruptor in the
computing industry. His work with nivio resulted
in his being named a technology pioneer in
January 2009 at the World Economic
Forum. Sachin Duggal left nivio in 2012 to
pursue his next idea in the cloud computing
industry. He spent the interim years on intensive
development and bootstrapping with some fellow
founders. Then, in June of 2018,
launched. The software feeds into his vision of
providing people the seemingly out of reach tools
they need to bring their ideas to life by using
human-assisted AI to build apps and custom
(The Builder team at Cannes Film Festival 2019.
Aramanya, the son of Sachin Dev Duggal, claimed
the title of the youngest person to ever walk
the red carpet). In addition to his incredible
business ventures, Sachin Dev Duggal Engineer.AI
is decorated with numerous accolades from around
the world. He was named Indian Innovator of the
Year by MIT TR35, the
Leader of Tomorrow by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and
Entrepreneur of the Year finalist by EY, just to
name a few. Even if you already know of Sachin
Duggals story, the businesses hes built, the
awards hes won, his resume is nothing short of
inspirational. But what is the mindset that
propels him around the world from day- to-day?
How does his view on business, and life in
general, keep him ahead of the curve year after
year? 1. Life is like a function. Since
Sachin Dev Duggal started out by programming his
mothers computer, it makes sense that he sees
life as a function. Functions are mathematical
equations that have only one output there is
only one solution. And life, as Sachin Duggal
explains, all sums to zero. Your life is the
sum of all that ever happens to and around you.
Its the result of everything that you do to
other people and everything that other people do
to you. All the things you do well and all the
things you do badly. Its the total of the times
you were nice and the times you were not nice.
You cant control the things that happen to and
around you, but you can control the way you
respond to them. And when you look back at the
end of your life all the variables that took
place return the value of you. What do you want
that return value to look like? When your life
comes to an end it all sums to zero. Everything
that ever took place. This gives you enormous
freedom in the way you approach life. What are
you going to do with that freedom? 2.
Short-term pain for long-term gain. The best
things in life never come easy. It takes time,
consistency, dedication, and patience to bring a
dream to life. You have two options during every
single moment in your life the easy way or the
hard way. Sachin Dev Duggal had a simple but
beautiful way he looks at these choices
You can eat a box of donuts for short-term gain
because, lets face it, donuts are delicious.
But eating the entire box of donuts results in
long- term pain, both in a stomach ache and an
impact on your health. Or you can go lift
weights at the gym, especially with it being the
time for New Years resolutions, and experience
short-term pain. But the long-term gain you
receive when you stick with an exercise regimen
is worth it. The majority of people settle for
the easy way out in life. Successful
entrepreneurs take the exact opposite of the easy
way. They spend their days pursuing short-term
pain after short-term pain in order to
experience that long-term gain of success. 3.
The most important lesson in life is tunnel
vision. Sometimes you hear people talk about
tunnel vision like its a bad thing. Sachin Dev
Duggal Engineer AI, on the other hand, believes
its one of lifes most important lessons. It
isnt hard to find yourself distracted when
building a business. There are countless factors
to consider at the beginning of any new endeavor.
This is where tunnel vision comes into play.
Sachin Dev Duggal suggests you bypass every
single obstacle standing in your way and
visualize yourself at the end. Speed past the
naysayers and through the difficult periods by
looking past them. Then focus only on that. Ask
yourself, What is the problem Im solving and
what is the smallest solution that gets me to
the resolution? One way to figure this out is
to take yourself to the point in time where your
problem is solved. Turn back around 180 degrees
and look at the shortest distance to the result
where youre standing. Then follow that path.
This exercise offers you a sense of confidence
and surety that can keep you moving through the
challenges. Once youve visualized the path that
will help you solve your problem, you can follow
through then look toward your next problem. 4.
Wisdom exists with experience. Too many people
believe that wisdom resides in those with
intellect. In reality, wisdom exists with
experience. You can spend years in school and
still not receive the in-depth education that a
year in your field will provide. The difference
between speculation during education and proof
of real-life experience is vast. Perhaps you
look to those who seem to know the most about a
particular subject. They might have a degree or
certification in that realm that makes them seem
qualified. But how often have you heard of
successful entrepreneurs who bypassed a college
Although there is nothing wrong with learning,
experience is oftentimes the best teacher of
all. Sachin Duggal pointed out that as he gets
older, he spends less time questioning himself.
Each of his experiences taught him to trust his
gut rather than the people who always have
something to say. There is nothing more
educational than trying to do something
yourself. There are things you will never learn
until you face those problems and unknown
answers head-on. But the more time you spend
solving problems, the more youll trust your own
instincts and less youll rely on the input of
others. 5. Ruthlessly edit your life. You are
the sum of the people you keep closest to you. If
you surround yourself with people who are lazy
and directionless, youll soon find yourself
lounging around with no direction. Its much
easier to find yourself dragged down by your
peers than to bring them up to your level with
you. Surround yourself with successful people
if you want to be successful. Take stock of the
people you spend the most time with. What do they
do with their time? Do they have the same goals,
passions, or hobbies that you do? Are they
lifting you up or bringing you down?
If you see there are people bringing you down,
its time to realize they arent a fit in your
life. Sachin Dev Duggal suggests the importance
of ruthlessly editing your life. There might be
situations that will bite you but the payoff is
worth it. Dont keep negativity in your
wheelhouse. Cut out the things that dismantle
your vision for your life. 6. Show people the
art of the possible. Sachin Dev Duggal looks up
to Richard Branson as a positive role model. He
holds close the idea of making the world a better
place whilst making our lives a better place.
There is a need to help others who lack the same
opportunities we have. Its incredible to see
what someone can do when you give them the
opportunity to do it. Its difficult for people
who lack resources to keep up with those who
have them. One of Sachin Dev Duggals ambitions
is to show people the art of the possible. He
aims to build software that equips people with
the ability to bring their ideas to life. When
they feel like their idea is in the palm of
their hands, there isnt anything they cant do.
7. Failure is feedback. There still seem to be
people who avoid failure at all costs. They
create stories, cover their tracks, and do
everything they can to keep from making a
mistake. If they make everything look perfect on
the outside then it means all their ventures
will succeed.
Sachin Dev Duggal finds the exact opposite to be
true. In his experience, failure is feedback.
The vulnerability in being willing to fail
provides insight on how to succeed the next time.
Its impossible not to fail and its a
disservice to yourself when you dont allow
yourself the freedom to do so. You will fail
at least once during your entrepreneurial
journey. Youll most likely fail more than once.
Its what you do with those failures that define
you as an entrepreneur and as a person. Do you
try to hide your shortcomings or do you
capitalize on them as learning experiences? Buil
d upon the times you fail and construct an even
greater outcome in the future. Set your sights
ahead to the results you dream of and dont let
any step in your way. There is nothing but
experience at your fingertips, ready for you to
reach out and take it. Source
