10 Things I Learned From The Big K

Somehow, growing up & learning years never seem to come to a halt. I get to learn so many things each day. From the time I first breathed sense I have consciously thought of The Big K as a real-life super hero. I thought of listing down some points for why I feel so. Following this is a collection of feel-good thoughts I unconsciously picked up from Biggie. πŸ™‚

1. Self Belief
What my conscience tells me is always right. People bug you all the time. They tell you that you are stupid and your work is insane. It’s only self belief that gets you to the right shore.

2. Patience
If Rome was not built in a day, how can I convert my dreams into reality overnight? It takes undaunted patience to push through all the thick and thin and watch the dream unfolding before your eyes. And what a beautiful view that is.

3. Staying cool
Decisions taken in haste and in an angry state of mind will always prove fatal, whereas if I keep my head cool, most of the angry storms turn their course away.

4. Fighting fear
Easiest way to tackle fears is to just do it and then keep trying till perfection is achieved. It’s the unknown we fear, when we fear without trying.

5. No excuses
Like they say, for certain things in life, there are no second chances. The same way, there is no space for excuses. Either I nod and say yes or I shake my head and say no. There’s no point in hanging between these two giving random excuses, because even if you do it ultimately, it’s too little & too late.

6. Talking Sense
Dumbnuts who keep chattering endlessly with little or no sense in their verbose are particularly very irritating than anything else. Talking little, but talking sense is something I’ve started appreciating highly.

7. Turning a Deaf Ear
Listening to people brag and boast about things that are not even close to praiseworthy would get to my nerves. Turning a deaf ear to that and all other unpleasant tit-bits helps focusing on the more important things in life.

8. Execution of things at hand
Dwelling on the past and unending planning of the future leads to a moment when present has become past and future in not as planned. Instead, successful execution of the work at hand gets instant results and instant happiness. πŸ˜‰

9. Being Passionate
It’s the only that gets you up in the morning with an enthusiastic state of mind and keeps warm blood rushing through your veins the whole day.

10. Persistence
Being persistent with whatever I feel passionate about.

—————————————————————————–

All the points mentioned above are more or less the output of using common sense. You may not need a Big K for learning those. Everyone eventually learns them the hard way.
Guess what, I’m feeling lucky today! πŸ˜€

  1. Very interesting tribute. I may have disagreed with the exhibition of some of the points above by Big K himself. But who’d know him better than you. Some one can write 10 more points and they all will be relevant and insufficient to describe what he has achieved. πŸ™‚

    Super Like!

  2. Haven’t known much about Biggie personally but what I get to observe from his daily activities online, I too feel the same as you do. Actions speak stronger than words and everything you have mentioned has been reflected from his actions on CE. He truly is an inspirational person. Learnt a lot from him.

    One must understand that its only very few people who have the sense to understand all the points mentioned above and actually implement in real life too and Biggie is one of the few people who do them both. I honestly feel that Biggie has a lot of potential and there is a lot of things we should expect from him in future. Wishing him all the best πŸ™‚

    @Ankita,
    a very gracious article from you. Loved reading it. It very fortunate you have such a person so close at hand. All the best for your future too πŸ™‚

    P.S: for those who were unable to comprehend who this Biggie is, I have mentioned The Big K as Biggie (as he is popularly called on CrazyEngineers Forums)
