Wow. This is so fascinating . Yes , that's the word. Thanks for putting such a variety together Abhijit.

And yes, this elephant I like .

The 4 mindsets, just started reading the article , have bookmarked it for later, it's very interesting, I also think all 4 are important mindsets and if one can have the ability to switch from one to the other or atleast any 3 of them , we are talking about a person who will be pretty effective overall ...

Glad you like the elephant!! Thanks.

To your point about the 4 mindsets, yes you are spot on. Adaptability is a big driver of success at the individual level as well as for organizations. Imagine the C Suite that all the 4 mindsets between them. After all mindset is the operating system. The behaviors are like the apps that work in one OS but not the others.

The newsletter was, undoubtedly, 'insightful.'

Just a bit more curious about your piece on insights - I was wondering whether each of the four areas mentioned in the 'Lightbulb Moments' talk will be complimentary gifts if every human on the planet gets some knowledge about social psychology and emotional intelligence. Both of these areas can teach us why people do what they do. Once we start looking around with someone else's perspective, we'll start thinking the way they do, and hence, will come up with new insights. This will, in turn, make people empathize more and learn collectively. Do you think so?

Thanks for your comment. The lightbulb moment is when any area that has been in the dark gets light shining on it. That lightbulb is lit by a better understanding of the problem the consumer is trying to solve. The challenge is often unspoken. We know how to understand words. Insight is knowing what is unarticulated
