Lessons from the Show
Sucheta talked to us about her life, livelihood, and and offered us many wonderful lessons that point us towards an authentic, happy and fulfilling life and career, and to improving the way we think, including:
- Recognizing that by allowing ourselves to focus on what we “do well” we never get to practice the things we don’t do well, which has profound consequences in our thinking, happiness, and ability to do lots of things! And maybe, with practice, we would do these things well…and by at them working harder than those to whom they come naturally, we would learn them deeper;
- Deep thinking comes from having to solve problems that are not yours and for which you are not skilled and trained;
- Traveling, meeting people “not like you”, and engaging in service and human interaction let you learn more about yourself and allow you to grow;
- Thinking about doing good for others and realizing that this is not enough, but rather that acting towards others out of a place of non-judgment allows for true compassion.
