Life and career[ edit ] — I began to understand that there were certain things one could expect from adults, and others that one could not expect In her autobiography, she wrote that the essay was influenced by her reading of Friedrich Nietzsche:
Envision yourself near the end of a fulfilling, lifelong career and you just published your autobiography. Share the title and introduction. Not only are they boisterous, but inspiring to me. Every day, I sit in my office on the top floor and see thousands of people walk on them; to me they are nothing but miniscule dots from this height, but still they lead me to think about myself.
How are people going to remember me after I am gone? On most days, my office and the company on the whole, is a microcosm of New York. Papers fly like jets out of the printers and a meeting can only be fun, if there are sandwiches to be had after.
I must see a hundreds of people every day but did I really remember them? My main goal was to be remembered as the engineer and CEO who appreciated meetings where dinner was involved, appreciated the occasional company picnic and appreciated the lighthearted conversations with people throughout the day.
To this day, in my corner office on the top floor, I keep a little golden-yellow sheet of paper in a drawer, with my Four Standards written on it; the morals and ethics which I came upon during school years and my college years at Purdue University, the things that prove the truth in my success.
They are the essential facets of my career and success and I cherish each and every one. They are, in no particular order, Responsibility, Respect, Ethics and Progress. This quality of my career first came to me, not in college but rather, in high school.
After going through a rigorous and fast paced curriculum at Plano Senior High School, I realized how important accepting your mistakes really is when defining your personality. From exhausting long term projects to arduous AP tests, it dawned on me that I could not just flow through high school as I did during middle school.
Things were changing as grades abruptly began to start factoring into the equation, as honor societies began to come into existence for me, and as the imminent goal of college came near, day by day, hour by hour. Everything began to mold itself into one path and one goal; college.
I labored over voluminous books and studied wholeheartedly for classes, because I knew it would pay off soon. I learned that to be successful, I had to embrace this idea quickly and I figured that I would need it someday in the future.
That day came soon, very soon, when I first started my company and I had the daunting task of finding, hiring and maintaining employees and myself at that. Respect is not just a term, but rather an ideology; unfortunately it is one which not everyone has not been able to accept.
Growing up in a strict Indian home, respect for elders and those elder in knowledge was a must and I learned it firsthand.
Furthermore, this idea evolved during school. It was clear that this was a much needed skill and my participation in class allowed me to be the socialite I am today. I credit my outgoing personality, during both home and professional situations to the word respect, as it forever teaches me to always appreciate what I had and have today.
During school and college, I witnessed malpractice on a multitude of things but I could never give in to them. My parents had always taught me to stay true to myself and even during the toughest of times, whether they were in college or today at work, never forsake the moral conduct given to me by my family and the ethics passed down to me by my ancestors.
During a normal work day, I will have numerous complaints about said employee and said executive, and by great strife, I understand that there is a reason for everything. But it is how I handle a situation by using past actions is what makes me a seasoned individual.
However, this term is quite malleable. It can be susceptible to many changes in actions, reactions and processes of thought. This idea evolves the most for me and it took me quite a while to come up with word that would fit that emotion that had built up inside me for these many years.
Success would be a very narrow term that could be measure with monetary value, but I wanted something more, something that could measure me as a person, my ambitions and my way of productivity.
My father was a symbol of progress for me, as he always reminded me of a man who had not only acquired a stable income to support us, but moreover, a stable mindset, or should I say a toolbox.
This toolbox was essential in figuring out problems that we had as a family, thoughts that he had experienced during his lifetime and the progress he had made not as a successful engineer, but as a person.
These four words mean the whole world to me, as they are key elements to my life and mind as a whole. Whenever I have come across a problem, I open that drawer and take out the crumpled, old piece of paper and realize that to be an effective leader, all you need is some determination and some excitement because experience is the ultimate reward.How to Write a Brief Description of Yourself.
