“My name should not be made prominent. It is my ideas that I want to see realized. The disciples of all the prophets have always inextricably mixed up the ideas of the Master with person, and at last killed the ideas for the person. The disciples of Sri Ramakrishna must guard against doing the same thing. Work for the idea, not the person.”

This must be fairly familiar to people who have read India’s greatest ‘Economics Saint’ – Swami Vivekananda.

Exactly what I would want Subramoney to stand for. Ideas can come from anywhere – from the Vedas, Puranas, History, Fiction, Experience, Teachers, Colleagues, books, friends, or even from websites like subramoney.com.

YOUR SKILL SHOULD BE SEE HOW TO USE IT – instead of thinking ‘has subra done this…what status he has to say this…or such thoughts. Look at the idea, see if it is robust, something you can implement -and necessary, go and JUST DO IT.

I am seeing 2 sets of people. One who know everything, but will not implement. The second who do not know – so there is no question of implementing. END RESULT IS THE SAME, is it not?

So go and get ideas, almost ignore the person giving the idea (especially if you do not like him or her), and then implement.

Of course if I see an idea mentioned by Swami Vivekananda or Swami Jagadguru Shankaracharya or Swami Sivananda it is 90% certain that I will love the idea – a.k.a positive bias….! So in the last line you see me contradicting what I said earlier?
