There was a super insightful fireside chat with @vkhosla and @NandanNilekani, moderated by @sharads, yesterday in Bangalore. My notes. Long thread.
@vkhosla: I have this fear that you can grow old when you retire, not retire when you grow old. So I hope I never retire. As long as you have interesting problems to work on, there's nothing more exciting to do than work on that.

1/ "If doctors and nurses #clocked out when their paid #hours were finished, the effect on patients would be calamitous. Doctors and nurses know this, which is why they don’t shirk.

The system knows it, too, and takes advantage." @danielleofri nyti.ms/31ma6Qz
2/ "Increasingly, though, I’ve come to the uncomfortable realization that this #ethic that I hold so dear is being cynically #manipulated.

With mergers and streamlining, it has pushed the #productivity numbers about as far as they can go."
3/ "By now, corporate medicine has milked just about all the 'efficiency' it can out of the system."

I often think about this from an educator perspective too. My residents often say 'I just don't know how I can be any more #efficient" #MedEd

[Day2: Failing Better Together]
Q: What does "failure" mean to you?

For me, my #sciencefails & #SciComm fails fuel my teaching & community-building values:
- Creating spaces to fail better
- Building communities to exchange learnings
- Scaffolded experiences to reframe failure KyleMarian on a microphone with her back to the camera. She's facing the audience and hosting a storytelling show.
#Failure is an important part of #Science & #Comedy, but it wasn't until I got into comedy where I started understanding the impact of being transparent & celebrating failures.

It also got me thinking: does #Academia have an integrated process & outlet for dealing w/ failure?
Do you incorporate #journaling or #reflections into your #SciComm practice?
If you work in teams, do you have regularly-scheduled de-briefs?
As professionals, are you given allotted times in your paid schedule to reflect on project learnings?

#kzoo2019 well @WestPoint_USMA were so anxious to talk, they just started on their own at 1328 sharp! Prof Rogers explains his cadets' "mission control center" or laboratory for #Military #History, working 8+ hrs/day on #medieval chronicles' paleography to #data mine 100yrs' war
Specifically looking for artillery information in skirmishes and sieges, to find what on the "laundry list" of sieges leads to #failure vs #success according to the #Database the cadets @WestPoint_USMA built collaboratively for the late #medieval & early #Renaissance. #kzoo2019
A small sample of the +90,000 #data entries - first up is Cadet Liam Kane with his findings on waging war by sieges vs by battles... taking #medieval #Military #History from generalizations to specifically-defined quantities... 47 battles to 134 sieges! #kzoo2019

#OSHO

The #mind is a #coward, for those who listen to it become utterly cowardly. The mind is not an #adventurer, it is very #cautious. It takes every step with #thinking and #calculation until it is #certain that there is no #risk.
When everything is going good the mind comes in and says "watch out!" Because you listen to the mind's #fears you stop living. The mind would keep you always the same, never taking #risks.

Newness is an #enemy to the #mind, sameness is its #friend.
To #laugh is to #risk appearing a #fool

"We all have imperfections deep down inside; some of us are just better at hiding it than others... this performance of niceness, I never trust. More healthy when we acknowledge that parts of ourselves. Maturity is knowing when it release that, when not to." @rgay #onairfest
Hilarious: @debbiemillman tells @rgay was "terrified" of her stature, twitter, etc before mtg her. "I never feel strong," says Gay. How I remember myself is diff from how other ppl remember me." Also, does surviving=strength? #onairfest
.@rgay: Why do I get uncomfortable to consider self strong, brave? I think we project bravery when others do things we can't. Resilience plays into strength. Strong=way in which you survive, endure. Boldly or not? Abt self-awareness, ability to acknowledge mistakes, failures.

In the past, I have made costly mistakes in business & personal life which you can avoid by learning from me. The path to success is littered with storms, bumps, bends, twists, potholes, blockades called #failure .
Follow the thread and see why you need a #roadmap/#businessmodel
A #businessmodel must #clearly bridge your present with the future.
This applies to every sphere of life.
Imagine going to a place you have no idea about without a roadmap?
That is why having an #EntrepreneurInResidence is important.
As an #EntrepreneurInResidence I usually help drawing up a realistic #roadmap
that will clearly pronounce your intentions,
what will enable you to get to your envisioned destination,
and which indicators you should see to know you have reached that desired destination.

Banyak banget yang nanya, ngerjain startup tu asik ya? Gw share dikit ya ilmu gw di per-startup-an selama 13 tahun terakhir. Bakal panjang ya jadi sabar-sabar ngikutinnya
Gw yakin banyak banget di sini yang ngebayangin jadi kaya Mark Zuckerberg gara-gara nonton the social network. Bikin startup tidak seindah itu, apalagi jaman sekarang, PENUH PENDERITAAN. Iya lo ga salah baca. PENUH PENDERITAAN. Tapi bukan berarti ga asik kok sob nanti lo liat
Pengalaman startup pertama gw dimulai tahun 2005. Startup pertama gw adalah sebuat software house. Jaman itu masih ngenes lah. Kenapa ngenes? Itu jamannya masih kalo lo di bidang IT harus bisa jadi superman yang bisa segala macem dan dibayar serendah mungkin
