Professor M.S.Rao’s Principle – The 10-20-30 Rule –– Local, National and Global Leader

“Winner don’t quit because they are passionate about their work. If you are not passionate, you will quit because when things become difficult our will say this is not my kind of stuff.” ––Steve Jobs

There are a number of principles in the world including Pareto’s Principle 80/20 and Jack Welch’s 20:70:10. Here is another principle I have coined to become a local, national and global leader – Professor M.S.Rao’s Principle 10/20/30.  Here is an elaborate explanation of this principle which can be applied in any industry and sector to grow as a local, national and global leader.   

To achieve happiness and success in your life, you must pursue your passions without searching for monetary rewards. Passion leads to money, not the other way round. Hence, follow your heart where you are comfortable and enjoy doing it with loads of enthusiasm and without any stress. After identifying your passions, follow them relentlessly by investing your efforts and energies consistently. If you work hard for 10,000 hours which may take 3 years approximately, you will become an expert and authority in your area. You can become a professional and grow as a local leader.  If you continue investing your efforts and energies in your passionate area for 20,000 hours which may take around 6 years, you become an expert and authority at the national level to grow as a national leader. In a nutshell, you grow as a thought leader at the national level.  If you invest your efforts and energies in the same area for a period of 30,000 hours which may take around 9 years of your life, you become an expert and authority at the international level. You will grow as a global leader in your passionate area.  When you look at film stars, sportspersons, leaders and celebrities, they achieved amazing success by following this principle and sticking to their passionate areas without any deviation.

The entire process appears to be easy to read but it is very difficult to apply because there will be innumerable challenges on the way to reach to the tipping point.  You must have patience, and be persistent to achieve your goals.  You must work for satisfaction, not for recognition.   Above all, you must have a heart to make a difference in the lives of others to be accepted and respected as a global leader. Enjoy the journey, not the destination. Emphasize on means, not ends to provide meaning to your life. Explore and experiment this principle and I am sure you be a global leader.

Good luck to become a global leader!
