Mr. Acharya also laid stress on the fact that our surrounding and environment have huge impact on our lives, especially right people and right place. Further, he stated, “If you hang out with smart people, chances are that you will grow smarter along with them. Chances and opportunities are rare yet crucial. Whenever you get an opportunity to work with good people, grab it. Luck plays an important role in our career. Although, you can’t alter it, you can definitely increase the probability of it. Minimizing regrets would help you take wise decisions in life. It is easier to forget and move on from wrong decisions but not quite easy to live with the regrets”.
