This blog reflects my angle to the various things around and beyond us.

was playing dart game at my house and something brought a great Eureka moment
for me. Wanted to share.
trying to put all three darts in the inner circle but even after numerous
attempts one or more were astray. Then during one attempt I somehow removed my
spectacles (I have a minor myopia, so basically was able to see board but not
very clear). Now again I tried hitting and surprisingly consistently all 3
darts were hitting inner circle and some were in fact going and hitting
bull's-eye. This got me thinking and then came the Eureka moment.
of my blurred vision I had to concentrate more and was trying very hard to just
see the bull's-eye and trying to aim there only (since that was the only mark
clearly visible, no other numbers were visible). I couldn`t even see where
other darts were hitting, my eye was only concentrating on bull's-eye and what
happened as a result was everything - my hand movement, grip, stance,
trajectory - were automatically getting aligned.
after the first shot, which was little off, I did not see where it hit but kept
my gaze on bull's-eye and then second shot automatically came near, I continued
my gaze and third shot hit the bull's-eye.
revelation I felt was almost like an enlightenment. When I was concentrating my
vision and mind on the bull's-eye, everything else seemed to obey an order and
automatically got aligned to achieve a common goal. It's not even that I
practiced and eventually it happened, the results were sudden. Performance
with my spectacles on, since I had more vision I could see all sectors/numbers
and was thinking that I can hit here or there etc. Later with no spectacles
with all concentration and vision on bull's-eye, there was no option and my
mind and eyes were only concentrating on the single target. Magic happened.
the parallel in startups also holds true. If one is extremely laser sharp
focused on a goal, everything will align towards that. The only condition being
the focus should be unwavering. Many a times we let our focus waver on multiple
things but I guess it should be the mission of an entrepreneur to find that ONE
thing to focus on. There will be lots of misses, but one should not break the
focus and just keep on gazing the bull's-eye…..everything will automatically
align very fast and the next attempt will be near the mark and eventually we
will hit a bull's-eye.
short all one needs is1) Identification of ONE Goaland2) Meditation like
focus on that Goal…..don't bother about anything else…..if the focus is
consistent and attempts are continuous the alignment will happen. Almost
