Varun Dua, CEO and Co-founder, Coverfox.com speaks of work management and fitness.
Balance Management working life
conciliation is probably one of the hardest things to achieve. From something it is hard your spouse or family, as it involves sacrificing time together. It has been a learning curve for me. Recently, I have begun to establish some rules – such as maintaining the free weekends only for my family, take a quick road trip to disconnection. Night, at home, are about to grab some comfort food with Sapna, my wife, and catch a few shows on Netflix. I envy people who manage efficiently the time, stress and schedules so that they are able to take time off and travel. It is a way of thinking. I’m trying to do that. Hopefully, I’ll get!
Being a fit man
About a year ago, I bought a core team and established a small home gym. I have a trainer who comes in the early morning, 3-4 times a week, and helps me in strength and functional training. Be disciplined about fitness is difficult, but I have done a year ago. So I’m happy about it!
high energy and happiness
My wife is a big dog lover. Two years ago, she adopted two puppies. His energy and enthusiasm, after a long, hard day is pure joy. Wake up each day to work on something that is naturally stimulating. To add to this, when work to meet a young team driven working hard to solve problems and grow as professionals, giving you a boost of adrenaline comes.
I’m not a spiritual man. Over spirituality, it is more satisfying than being able to do something for someone who does not have the means and opportunities.
Risky or a micro-planner
a person who takes risks – every business has to be one. You have to trust your gut. Once you get an address, sits with the team to plan and execute. A change in strategy or a bold move when the die is cast drives a businessman.
Fault Management / success
can not get away from the failures and work in a startup. There have been times (and I’m sure there will be more) when you feel that the walls are closing in on you. But one thing I’ve noticed is that there is always a way out.
In a crisis, I like to take control. Someone has to call the shots in such situations. Right or wrong, you have to make decisions. I think a leader of a business has to inculcate the spirit of ‘can do’ and take responsibility for that decision.
When morale is low, bringing together your team is the way to go. You can not find fault in people / processes at that point. Introspection and course correction will come later.
