RPG Honcho Harsh Goenka is not only an industrialist but also a career guide and mentor. And what is amazing is that one can make positive changes in one’s life by joining Goenka’s mentorship for free.

The first mistake Goenka lists is – “Thinking you know everything”, followed by “No networking”. The list also advises against arriving late to meetings or not reading about your field. Goenka also said to avoid “just doing the minimum” and to always ask for help when you need it.

To confuse them all not so long ago; able to avoid most of them now. Thanks to so many people who have supported me, reported errors with solutions, and helped me reach levels I never thought I could reach. https://t.co/Lyok4ZrGKS

According to this user, his biggest career mistake was not meeting Goenka at an early age.
Goenka, being the guide that he is, also shared another tweet on January 25 that emphasized the importance of the future and advised against meditating on the past. The industrialist used a great analogy to get the message across. Looked:
I asked my guru “Why is the windshield of a car so big and the rear view mirror so small?” He replied, “Because our past is not as important as our future.” So, LOOK AHEAD and GO FORWARD. — Harsh Goenka (@hvgoenka) March 25, 2022
