1) Startups are built on the best ideas only – While ideas are very important – execution is what differentiates success in startups. There were many social networks before Facebook and many search engines before Google. Execution is what takes a startup to the next level.

2) Working 15 hours a day is the solution – Smart work and an even smarter team is the more efficient way to scale – you can’t always do everything yourself.

3) Phone calls and emails get things done – Reality (at least in India) is that follow up and in-person interactions create magic. Get out of your office and go into the market to make things happen.

4) Eventually, luck matters – While luck has some part to play, we believe the hustle and hard work create luck.

5) Other people don’t fail as much as I do, why always me? – Everyone fails – the way one deals with failure and comes back from it is what differentiates the winners from the others.
