Views about 'Tech product Introduction is weak among Indians'
The temperament in Indian talent is very objective.
The need is to nurture own ideas in comparison to following directives from a different set of people and spend time in operational activities. If each organization allots a small portion of its employees time to work on their own ideas and provides resources to achieve that, the issue of limited product innovation will see itself through in no time.

Managing professional as well as personal life
Time management is all about prioritizing your activities. Reduce focus and energy on non value add activities and channel energy towards activities which add value, one day at a time; focusing on smaller goals rather than ambitious ones.
Goals and Ambitions
To develop as a professional and become the expert in my field; to hone my entrepreneurial skills and refine my entrepreneur skills.
