Lessons from the Metroman

Guest lectures have been intellectually stimulating components of my Bschool life. This evening, we had a rather short talk from the Metroman of India, Dr. Sreedharan, the man behind the Delhi Metro (The Economist has done a piece on him last year). I liked his no-nonsense talk. He emphasised 4 things for a successful person.

  1. Punctuality (He says this is a courtesy to the others)
  2. Integrity (He says it is not only about honesty rather a sense of moral values)
  3. Knowledge (You guys know it…)
  4. Health (which in turn derives from 3 things – a. Balanced Diet b. Ample Sleep, Early-to-bed, early-to-rise c. Character)

    hmm… I would disagree on the early-to-bed, early-to-rise concept though…
