The Leader Who Had No Title – Book Review

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

The Leader Who Had No Title by Robin Sharma is one of the handful of books which are for every single person in this world! The simple concept it teaches is that every one can be a leader in what they do.


I got introduced to Robin Sharma’s books through a good friend of mine (Prem), with The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. I loved the way Robin Sharma presents interesting facts using a story telling approach.


One Liners to Remember – One – Two – Three – Four – Five

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

This is a compilation of one liners based on my learning from various leaders who have inspired me. These leaders are Vince Dobilas, Coach Wooden, Seth Godin and Robin Sharma.


ONE THING TO REMEMBER (If you can only remember one thing, remember this)

  • Do the right thing all the time (This is attributed to Vince Dobilas)


  • Be consistently passionate about your dream
  • Consistently spend time, effort and energy towards working on making your dream a reality

THREE SIMPLE RULES IN SPORTS (This one is from Coach Wooden)

  • Be on time all the time
  • Do not say one word of profanity
  • Be a team player


  • Spend lots of time with your family and friends
  • Get fit and stay fit
  • Become a serious investor in You, Inc and focus on doing one thing extraordinary at any given point in time
  • Be positive all the time and say bye bye to all negatives


  • Find the right team, then you can decide which initiative to work with them on
  • Network is the key – Connection economy rules the world today – Invest in building your community
  • Success is the satisfaction that you get when you know you have made the best effort that you are capable of
  • Measure everything – emotions are not measurable – go by facts and data
  • Identify your economic engine – find your first paying customer – and listen carefully to their needs and fulfil it

Who Moved My Cheese – Book Review

Friday, November 1st, 2013

I had already read a book called The One Minute Manager by Dr.Spencer Johnson and hence was quite thrilled when I picked up this book called Who Moved My Cheese. I have got quite a few recommendations in the past about this book and hence was happy to read Who Moved My Cheese.


Who Moved My Cheese revolves around a simple concept – Embrace Change – explained using a story built around four characters, Sniff, Scurry, Hem and Haw.


The One Minute Manager – Book Review

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Got a chance to grab a copy of ‘The One Minute Manager’ by Kenneth Blanchard and Spencer Johnson. I feel this is one of the best books that I have read, which is written using words and terms that are easily understandable by the common man.

This book recommends three simple One Minute principles

  1. One Minute Goals
  2. One Minute Praises and
  3. One Minute Reprimands

The style of writing in this book leads you into a story telling mode where the story is around a Manager who follows the above mentioned rules and successfully runs an organization. This reminded me of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which also uses a similar style of story telling.
