My Weekly Learnings #3 (11.04 – 17.04)

Amidst all the content I consume every week, through this weekly series of ‘My Weekly Learnings’, sharing highlights of content pieces that caught my eye and provided more value than I could imagine.

(P.S. Every Sunday, I share a list of what to read, listen, and watch, in my weekly series, The Last 7 Days. You can check out the editions here).

1. • There are no full stops in success. There are just commas. Success is not a destination. Success is a journey.

• One who seeks victory is a Man. One who spreads Victory is a ‘Maharshi’.
(Maharshi, a Telugu film)

2. More isn’t better.
    Faster isn’t further.
    Money isn’t wealth.
    Habits aren’t destiny.
    Solitude isn’t loneliness.
(Shane Parish)

3. ‘Everyone is rational’
But if that’s true, then why don’t we all agree on the right next step?
It could be because everyone has a different experience, different data and different goals.

Or, it could be that you are the only one who’s rational.

And it could be that we all like to tell ourselves we’re doing the right thing, but ultimately, all we can do is make choices based on how we see the world.

The way we see things drives our choices, and, of course, our choices change the way we see things.
(Seth Godin)

4. ⁃ Early to bed, early to rise
    ⁃ Not skipping meals and eating on time
    ⁃ Being regular with exercise

Remain the most underrated and undervalued means to boost immunity,  simply because they cannot be packed into a bottle and sold as a pill.
(Rujuta Diwekar)

RTHReviews : Maharshi

RTHReviews : Maharshi

One who seeks victory is a Man. One who spreads Victory is a ‘Maharshi’. This one line describes the film, Maharshi and the kind of impact it has on you.

The film does take its time with the multiple arcs it touches upon and its duration has been up for debate, but I felt all of those arcs were connected well and their depth doesn’t make you mind the time.

Touching upon the subjects of success, happiness, relationships, entrepreneurship, agriculture, fame, there was a perspective to learn in every phase of this film.

This was my first watch of a Mahesh Babu film and I’m already a fan, what talent. Allari Naresh was equally brilliant in the film, and so is the rest of the cast with so many of the characters playing important roles in the film, including Pooja Hegde, Prakash Raj, Jayasudha.

One word review: Meaningful

Said everything about the film, another thing that has to be touched upon are the dialogues in the film, that make a huge impact, not just in film, but also in our lives – and I wanted to touch upon a few here…

1. There are no full stops in success. There are just commas. Success is not a destination. Success is a journey.

2. In a world which remembers only the fastest runners, why would I live otherwise?

3. Do you know why so many people are left behind as failures here? Instead of identifying their strengths, they are scared of others’ strengths. They keep thinking about what others are doing, how they are and why it happens only to them and lose themselves. Here, everyone is a hero of their life. Everyone has their strengths.

4. If we step into the game with the fear of losing, we can never win.

5. One who seeks victory is a Man. One who spreads Victory is a ‘Maharshi’.
