Do share some of my success mantras.

I believe in not stressing about things/circumstances that are beyond my own control. To have clarity on the purpose/vision of doing things and maintaining consistency in the same is something I believe in. Delegate the right work to the right people and allow them to enjoy freedom in the kind of work they do. Do not take on more than you can handle.

We all make mistakes before we succeed. Do share some learning  from your mistakes?

Mistakes and failures evolve us personally and professionally. We Learn and Grow from them and move on to enjoy the benefits of this learning rather than being stuck.
