What I learnt from The Social Network ??

Here are my take aways from The Social Network, a real life story of how facebook was created by Mark Zuckerberg:

  1. There is no right time to start. Anytime you start is a right time.
  2. No matter how difficult name you have, people will definitely learn to pronounce it and remember it.
  3. Neither every techy has to be business minded nor every business guy has to be techy.
  4. You can win the race being a rabbit too. Just that you are not allowed to sleep in the race.
  5. Work and life go hand in hand. You cannot keep one idle for the other.
  6. Every business idea is a successful idea. Just that, it needs to be executed rightly.
  7. You do need to have a vision for whatever you do. facebook had a vision of connecting people in a network and making the world a more open place.
  8. You just don’t do anything for free, because everything has a value and you time too has some value.
  9. If you don’t want to make money, never call what you do a business.
  10. Numbers are fun, use them as much as possible. 🙂
  11. When something strikes a chord in your head, and you feel its might work and makes sense. JUST DO IT!
