At ISB, in Professor Sarang Deo's class..

At ISB, in Professor Sarang Deo's class, we were on our toes during our classes since the professor was extraordinarily energetic and generated our truest curiosities on statistics.

He was and remains a rockstar professor at ISB. His classes and takeaways have remained with me so much so that applying statistics to my profession in policy and my venture has become a second passion for me.

Today, working professionals as amazing as him from BCG, Mckinsey, Tesla, Bridgespan, and other top corporates are accessible as teachers and mentors via platforms including our Global Governance Initiative.

But are most people motivated to pursue these programs ? No!

Why ?

Our logic is that we are way too occupied with our daily commitments. So occupied that platforms such as Tiktok have surpassed Youtube on watch time per user.

The harsh reality is that learning is important but not critical. And due to the evolution, human beings do a shitty job at prioritizing important over urgent. We tend to finish things on Sunday which may be due on Monday/Tuesday. We keep on procrastinating learning, knowing fully well that those things will keep us afloat in the job market.

On top of that, big corporate houses ads, youtube channels, and Netflix are eying for our attention span every minute.

You may choose to fight back by rebuilding your habits around prioritizing important over urgent. It may not be easy but what worthy things in life are easy.

If we don't do this today, then it might not be late before the shit hits the roof.
