“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

The alarm rings at 6:00 AM on a Tuesday morning and I am in bed staring at the ceiling. My eyes open wide as my personal hard drive boots up. Today is Tuesday... a weekday... what time is it in Bangalore? How long do I have left to skype Beijing? What is it I do again? It's now 6:06 AM and my desktop is up and running. Welcome to the life of a global entrepreneur. What are you going to do today?

The best way to predict the future is to create it. When I look towards my future, I see a life of constant creation: the creation of business ventures, of relationships, of social good and most importantly, the creation of a family. Whatever the objective - from developing a township in India to building the most excellent enterprise - it is this passion of turning a concept into a concrete result which drives me.

As someone who cares more about the life in his years than the years in his life, I am excited for a life of windsurfing over choppy waters at break-neck speeds, thinking about the next challenge ahead. For an entrepreneur, the bar of success is constantly rising. Which is exactly why it's 6:15 AM and I'm already late for work.
