The speaker of the session was “Human Charger” Mr. Amit Pandey, Chief Operating Officer, Exicom Tele-Systems Ltd.
During the session, Mr. Amit Pandey highlighted the importance of different skills required to be successful in life. He suggested that people should talk positively and start thinking about life in a different way. He emphasized that the focus should not be only studies or money as we live in an environment where knowledge is not the power rather implementation of that knowledge is the real power. He also clarified that success and growth are not the same. According to him the equation for success and growth is: (Ethics + Integrity) + Growth = Progress & (Progress) + Happiness + Peace = Success. He stated that people adapt frustration as they keep moving forward without the basic ethics and values and there should be a different way to deal with such frustrated people. He also emphasized on the fact that 90 percent of life is driven by reaction and 10 percent is made by action. He shared few theories like Stone Paper Scissors Theory - which talks about positive and negative personalities, Hurrr Theory – which says if you get diverted from your destination, take a U-turn as soon as possible, 888 Theory – which talks about how to manage the 24 hours of a day (8+8+8) and stated that division of three things i.e. sound sleep, primary task and secondary task should be done equally, 7-21-90 Theory – which explains how it takes 7 days to develop a hobby, 21 days to get perfection and 90 days to make it a lifestyle and Draupadi Mindset Theory - where we have a list of things in our mind which we exactly want. He emphasized that practicing these theories will definitely help in transformation. He also showed a video which highlighted that age does not really matter to become successful, it’s important to take an initiative to bring the change and leadership qualities can’t be taught at school or home. Before concluding, he guided all to discover their own version 2.0 and emphasized to help others to develop a positive attitude towards life.
It was a detailed and thought provoking session which gave a new perspective to the students to understand various different aspects and also helped them to enhance their knowledge.
