By saying, 'no’, you clear up time and headspace to do more. The more focussed you are, the lesser number of tasks you undertake, leading to higher efficiency and quality in your work," he explained.3) Take Risks Mariwala believes learning comes from failures so he asks entrepreneurs to take risks."I have undergone many failures in my journey — and each one of them has taught me something.

You always learn," one of his pictorial posts said.4) Evolve Your VisionMariwala also wrote on how businesses are built on chance and serendipity."One should remain open to new opportunities and adapt their vision accordingly for sustainable growth. A good businessman will aim to capitalise on the opportunity or environmental change," the businessman said.5) Go For Win-Win NegotiationsMariwala advised new entrepreneurs to learn to be fair, especially when in a leadership position."It is important to ensure all parties involved feel valuable and benefit from the situation," he added.6) Reinvent YourselfMariwala also explained why one should not resist change."When I stepped down as managing director of Marico, it was a huge shift for me.
