Book Club Discussion on “Atomic Habits”

Missing once is an accident. Missing twice is the start of a new habit.
Library Book Club began as a way for like-minded employees to discuss their favorite books and to encourage the habit of reading. It has since opened its doors to all individuals who share a common love for books.

In its 6th meeting, the Club discussed “Atomic Habits,” one of the best-selling nonfiction books ever. The discussion was led by Deepti Khanvilkar, who began by noting the coincidence of James Clear’s last name(Clear) and his immense clarity in writing about building amazing habits.

Here’s a quick summary of the discussion:
– Small incremental changes compound over time. Don’t expect instant gratification or rely on fads; stick to the basics.
– Systems over goals. All Olympic athletes aim for the gold medal, but what separates the winner from the rest is their system.
– Identity over outcome. If you want to quit smoking, identify yourself as a non-smoker rather than someone trying to quit.

It was inspiring to hear some of our members share their stories on habit-building and their strategies. I have also successfully used some of the protocols mentioned in the book. Simple things like always keeping my gym bag packed or leaving a book on my work desk act as cues to remind me to follow the habits I want to build.

‘Systems Thinking: A Problem-Solving Approach’

Do you know of a methodology to solve only complex or “wicked” problems?

The Venture Center Library hosted a session on Systems Thinking by @Sukanta Bhatt, Here are the key takeaways:

— Systems Thinking vs. Linear Thinking: Emphasizes understanding whole systems, their interconnections, and feedback loops instead of isolated parts.
— Holistic Decision-Making: Encourages considering system-wide impacts for informed decisions.
— Identifying Leverage Points: Focuses on small changes that can lead to significant improvements.
— Creating a Systems Thinking Culture: Highlights the importance of fostering a mindset of interconnectedness and adaptability.

Dr. Bhatt shared compelling examples demonstrating why this approach is essential. With so many wicked problems around us, from climate change to poverty, perhaps systems thinking can help us address some of them.

Author Talk on “Funding Your Start-up: And Other Nightmares”

“Is funding really a nightmare? Prof. Prof Dhruv Nath, investor and author of ‘Funding Your Startup : And Other Nightmares’ showed us how to turn those nightmares into dreams!

During our recent author talk with Prof. Dhruv Nath, he delved deep into the PERSISTENT framework, providing invaluable insights into how startups can navigate the funding landscape and become investment-ready. One of the highlights was when he took a live example to illustrate the practical application of this framework, making it all the more relatable and actionable for our audience.

Between The Lines session

We had the privilege of hosting Advait Kurlekar’s Between The Lines session, which delved into the captivating stories from CanDid, our book spotlighting the sciencepreneurs at Venture Center.
Three out of the fifteen entrepreneurs featured in the book – Parul Ganju, Nuriel Pezarkar, and Renuka Diwan – took the stage and talked about turning their scientific ideas into business ventures. They shared their experiences, from scientific breakthroughs to corporate landscapes, offering interesting insights into the synergy between science and entrepreneurship. The book’s author Ramakrishnan N could not join us physically but had recorded a message about his journey and experience of working on this book.

Let’s demystify AI and ML

Unlocking the Mystery of AI & ML: A Journey of Discovery with Ravi Khare

The Venture Center library had the pleasure of hosting Ravi for a session on Demystifying AI/ML

From understanding the fundamentals of AI and ML to pondering who truly becomes intelligent, learns, and teaches in this digital age, we left no stone unturned. We even dove into the realm of Reinforcement Learning and how AI is trained, shedding light on the inner workings of these fascinating technologies.
But perhaps the most profound takeaway from our session was this: amidst the hype and excitement surrounding AI and ML, it’s essential to remember that the true sources of joy often lie beyond the realm of algorithms and data. As our speaker aptly emphasized, many of life’s most precious moments don’t require AI or ML—they simply require human connection and genuine experiences.
So, as we continue to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of technology, let us not forget the power of simplicity, human connection, and the joy found in the little things. Together, let’s embark on a journey of discovery—one where the wonders of AI and ML are met with a deep appreciation for the beauty of human experience.

Book club meeting on”CanDid” by N. Ramakrishnan.

‘CanDid: Inspiring human stories of resilience, perseverance & focus from sciencepreneurs at Venture Center’

Candid, a Venture Center-published book, follows the journey of 15 start-ups. To share the same trip, we have chosen the book Candid for discussion in the book club, which reveals the step-by-step success journey of entrepreneurs.

Discussant Neha enlightened the engaged audience with a very great explanation of the inspiration and desired behind this book. The journey of coming up with the idea for a start-up, the hard work and self-belief, and the realization of the start-up were discussed.  The session turned out to be really enjoyable and informal. During the event, several interesting and humorous anecdotes of young start-ups were shared, including how they came up with the idea, how they implemented it, and how they received support from their families. The reason and motivation for naming a startup was explored as well. A woman’s path as an entrepreneur reveals constraints, family opposition, and much more. Participants also shared their experiences. In such a way, the book club was extremely entertaining and enlightening.

 Talk on “How To Build Your Social Media Strategy From Scratch,”

Venture Center Library organized an enlightening talk by Mrinalini Sanchan on “How to Build Your Social Media Strategy From Scratch,” on 19th January 2024

Here are the top 3 takeaways from this talk:

1. Content is NO longer king: It’s the emperor now! Quality content is the bridge, but engagement is the destination. The journey through cyber space taught us that it’s not just about what you say; it’s about how you make your audience feel.

2. Importance of knowing your customers: The more you know, the more you grow! Tailoring content for your audience is the secret sauce. Understanding their needs, desires, and digital habits is the compass that guides you to the heart of your community.

3. Patience, Persistence, and Consistency: The Holy Trinity of Cracking Social Media! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a robust online presence. Shoutout to Mrinalini for reinforcing the power of endurance in this dynamic journey through the cyber wilderness.
