Learning from The Grandmaster

Viswanathan Anand is a gem. He has proved himself and been on Top during his Peak phase. Now he is 48 and still fighting it out. Here is a small interview that I came across today - so much to learn. Here is are some key takeaways:
  • He has done all, been on top and have been #1. After falling from last few years, he still finds passion and motivation to learn new things and fight it out. 
  • Always remain focus during the tournaments. As per his statement - he was chit-chatting between the two matches and that screws his focus. Now in free time between the matches - he prepares for the next matches. Thus this reminds me of Seven Habit Book's "Sharpen the Saw" law.
  • Taking inspiration from the likes of Federer or Nadal. Interestingly legends also take inspirations then why we shy in admitting to admire others. 
  • Change and updating to the new ways. Tried and Tested methods who have given victories in past doesn't mean that they are the best. One should always be open to learn new things and upgrade themselves. I think this abilities only make them legends.  
Here are some interesting tweets:
