- Learn to Resolve Peacefully
With this, each and every one of us can relate. Every single individual in this planet faces problems like stress, anxiety, management issues, employee strikes, organizational politics etc. This is a very common thing in the corporate world.
But the main trick behind solving these problems is not only to take corrective action but to take corrective action while not losing your calm. It has been seen that some organizations faced heavy losses when their top level management dealt with serious situations like employee strikes with anger. The result was that the organization was taken to court where to lost their time, their productivity suffered, and their goodwill and profits were also hit negatively
Mr. Anand Mahindra also thinks that not only in professional life but in personal life also this principle can be applied and positive changes like better decision-making skills and increase in overall productivity of an individual can be seen.

Take Bill Gates, for example, he reads at least 1 book per day. Yes, you read that right, one book per day. Zuckerberg also tries to develop his coding skills each and every day.
So why do these people still focus on learning while they are already on the top? The answer is the fact that these people realize the fact that the world is changing at a very fast pace, getting more and more knowledge helps to cope up with these changes.
Moreover, gaining more knowledge also enhances the ability of critical thinking and hence leads to more effective and efficient work pattern. An individual also becomes more calm, intellect and wise when he continuously keeps on gathering more and more knowledge.
