7 inspiring pearls of wisdom from Ratan Tata

Here are 7 amazing pearls of wisdom from Ratan Tata which will inspire you :

  1. I admire people who are very successful. But if that success has been achieved through too much ruthlessness, then I may admire that person, but I can’t respect him.

  2. Apart from values and ethics which I have tried to live by, the legacy I would like to leave behind is a very simple one – that I have always stood up for what I consider to be the right thing, and I have tried to be as fair and equitable as I could be.

  3. Barriers to innovation are usually in the mind.

    Words of Ratan Tata

  4. What worries me is that the threshold of acceptability or the line between acceptability and non-acceptability in terms of values, business ethics, etc, is blurring

  5. The strong live and the weak die. There is some bloodshed, and out of it emerges a much leaner industry, which tends to survive.

  6. I have been constantly telling people to encourage people, to question the unquestioned and not to be ashamed to bring up new ideas, new processes to get things done.

  7.  I view risk as an ability to be where no one has been before. I view risk to be an issue of thinking big, something we did not do previously. We did everything in small increments so we always lagged behind. But the crucial question is: can we venture putting a man on the moon or risk billions of rupees on a really way-out, advanced project in, say, superconductors? Do you restrict your risk to something close to your heart?
