With growing competition everywhere, Millennials are always under the scanners to make a difference and an identity. No one is better than to meet the person who can guide and pave the path with the real hacks of life and career. To make it easy, we have Sandeep Das enlightening us on the essential tricks to step up the ladder of success.
I often feel the need to have a mentor, a coach who could help me decide the right and the wrong, you know, especially when it comes to my professional life. Someone who could probe me ask me the right questions make me Delve upon and find the answers myself. Someone who could you know, let out a few hacks on the way while I figured out things. Do you? Do you relate to me? I feel you. Sadly, it isn't always presented on a silver platter. I think. However, our guest for today, Sandeep Das probably understood this need and wrote the book hacks for life in a career to help us make it big in life. Namaste I'm Shubham Aggarwal and you're listening to SOS, Secrets Of Storytellers, a podcast where I interview bestselling authors, we get to hear a lot of stories, concepts from the business world, and secrets about their books and their journeys. Hi, Sandeep, welcome to the secrets of storytellers. How are you?
Right the listeners would not really hear today. But yeah, Happy Diwali in advance or in whatever hindsight. So, Sandeep, tell us about your journey as an author, how did you manage it while being one of the busiest people on the earth, Consultants?
What time do you sleep, then?
That's a great discipline to have. I wish I could do that. But anyway. So why, why hacks for millennials? I mean, are they not equipped enough to find their own way? Or is it to catalyze the need for quick growth, like we call it?
Right? I see your point. I did go through a report sometime back where you know, the corporates who are the big hiring firms for fresh graduates, in particular, did complain about this fact that you know, they do not find people well equipped, or they do not have the right skills, what they need in a professional job?
So if you were to draw a parallel between the people in the age group of say, 25 to 35 of today's generation, and say, people from two decades back, How would you rate them? How would you What would be your judgment on them?
I agree when you say you know the careers are not going to be linear. They are already not I think, but then there's a flip side to it. Is it that the millennials are taking quick, unplanned decisions, which is often leaving them stranded? And therefore, you know, they're moving from one place to another? Or is it because they're bombarded with a lot of noise around them, which is distracting?
Right? So how does the book really help them in their careers in life, like you said, the book is to plug this gap to plug this concern that the millennials have?
Interesting, Sandeep I'm curious, so you said there are about 20 concepts that you think should govern your your professional life, your personal life and things like that? Could you touch upon a few of them? If you if you're comfortable?
Great. And where do these learnings come from? So are these your personal tries with learning? Or is it that you these are handed down to you? How did it take shape?
Wonderful, wonderful. What would you suggest to younger, energetic fellow who wants to make it big in life?
Perfect. Great. That's great. All right. So let's move on to the rapid-fire section. A new to our podcast. And we keep juggling with it. Keep trying if it works or not for us has been doing good till now. So I think you you would know the rules. Yeah. All right. What is one trade that you think has helped you achieve the success that you have in life today?
Great and what was the motivation behind that consistency? I mean, were there times where you were, you know, you want to lacs out or you had other things on mind and you wanted to not not wake up at 5am? Say, how did you kept coming back to it? or How did you kept at it?
So what's your most cherished book after you're in books, obviously.
Ohh wonderful great that that is indeed a beautiful book, no doubt about it. Yeah, yeah. Okay, what's what's the motto you live by in your life?
Right? I was saying I think the podcast was about your book, but it caught about you and your personal life, I guess. So we're going to go even more deeper and ask you a very personal question next, because this is something which is common across all the episodes. So as you know, we call the show secrets of storytellers, I want to ask you one secret about the book, or about your your authoring journey, which you've probably never shared or not really spoken about.
Interesting. So keep manifesting while you're writing the book, or whatever you're doing.
Right, Right. Sandeep are you working on any any book at the moment, which you can probably share with us
