By Ajay Rai.
The amount [!] of time that we have never changes, but our perception of time always does. And whichever way we look at it, it is our best capital. This is something an entrepreneur knows better than most. It is not just a matter of how well one spends it, that is, how time wasted is minimized. The challenge lies in spending it judiciously, ensuring results that are effective and fruitful. All other resources that define a successful enterprise can take a back seat. The decisive role is always played by time.
And rightly so. If there is one lesson that entrepreneurs in and from the Silicon Valley, the place that has defined and shaped modern entrepreneurship, have disseminated, it is this unique importance of time. It is considered the most significant basic characteristic that entrepreneur must have. Each second counts.
How judiciously we spend time differs from person to person. For example, it is said that JRD Tata would spend only about two hours a day at Bombay House, taking care of Tata Group of companies. We all know how effective he was. There is no right or wrong way of using time. The only defining element is how judiciously it is used. If any of the readers have any need to learn how it can be done, I will be happy to respond to specific queries relating to the personal, professional, educational, and, possibly the most important, a career needs and how judicious use of time can bring in defining change in each. So, please feel free to write to me through email [firstname.lastname@example.org] and/or the good old letter [Dr. Ajay Rai, 153/18 Shipra Path, Mansarovar, Jaipur302020]. For those who would like to, please be assured, definite confidentiality will be maintained. From others, please mention that you have no objection to my daring [!] to use contents of your communication for sharing with other readers when you write to me.
Remember, as I said earlier, inside all of us there is an entrepreneur. And s/he is continuously trying to come out, and be counted. Let him/her..
