In an interactive interview with us, she talked about her act of balancing life in every sense.
How do you define balanced life?
For me, having a balanced life means creating time for work, family and things I have to do, as well as the things I like to do. In my view, it is important to create an equivalence between our life responsibilities while finding time to participate in endeavours that bring us pleasure, personal fulfilment, and rejuvenation.
How do you balance your work-life and personal life?
The balance between work and personal life doesn’t come naturally, it can only be attained with time and experience. When I started working on it I passed and failed, and it was my failures that enabled me to evolve and strengthen the pillars of the desired balance. For striking right balance between work-life and personal life I follow a four steps regime and goes like this-
- Nurturing myself for creating an efficient mindset. It enables me to function and multitask better, deal with challenges with a great deal of ease and have a go-getter approach.
- Outlining my priorities.
- Pre-planning all micro and macro events efficiently.
- Maintaining a positive mental attitude.
Moreover, a support system (spouse/family) also plays a key role in accomplishing the same. In my case it is my husband, Sumit Gandhi, without his unconditional support I don’t think I could have made it this far.
What is your crisis management at work front?
No matter how meticulous planner we are, we can’t anticipate and plan for everything in
our lives. During any state of crisis, you will find me composed and in complete charge of the matter with critical thinking and problem-solving hats on. With my professional exposure, I have learnt that this attitude makes things easier.
Are you a risk-taker or a full proof planner in life?
I am usually a full proof planner in life but that does not stop me from taking risks.
What is your source of happiness?
My first source of happiness is family followed by peace, harmony, love, respect, chasing and accomplishing professional and personal goals in life.
What makes you feel insecure in life and why?
Diplomacy! I am a straight forward person and I like to keep things either white or black.
How do you define success and failure?
To attain success one requires perfection, uniqueness and determination, the same cannot be achieved unless one is open to learning, unlearn, criticism and most importantly accepting failures. For me, both evolve from the same origin and I strongly believe that “The Secret to Success isFailure”.
What spirituality means to you?
Spirituality is defined differently by each. The way I experience spirituality in this world need not include a specific religion. When I think of spirituality it is inclusive, without dogma, holistic and most of all grounded in love, truth, and compassion.
How do you look at fitness?
What ‘reading’ is to the ‘mind’, ‘exercise’ is to the ‘body’. To me, fitness and health is beyond passion, need and goal; for me, living healthy is not a way of leading life, but LIFE. My fitness goals provide me matchless energy which helps me push my bars like never before. A healthybody and mind not only gives me a whole new perspective but helps me function better in day-to-day life too.
What travelling means to you?
To me, travel is Freedom. Travelling not only helps one cross the geographical borders but mental borders too. Travelling across the world has been a major contributor to my learning, knowledge, inspiration and innovation.
