My name did not appear in ET Power of Ideas, second list where 254 out of 1000 were selected. The sad part was that I knew it about it as soon as my qualifying telephonic interview with Ranjeet Shastri of IAN completed.
Reason - Over confidence. I did not do any mock before the disucssion and was very casual.
I also could see a patter where I easily cross initial hurdels and then loose interest and become careless in most of the deals.
Any way, this was a good lesson learned hard way. So my commitment is to be serious and remain serious and won over 90% of deals
