If you want the ultimate satisfaction, teach.

An interview with Sreevatsav Rajanampalli | Everyday People #79

1. Who are you, what do you do, and what is your current side project?

I’m Sreevatsav who hails from the Temple City of Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh.

2. Tell me about teaching. You started a business in coaching, and now with a salaried income, you continue to coach. What about teaching appeals to you? Why is it important to teach others?

I don’t know why, but I’ve been interested in teaching from childhood. I always loved to take sessions for my classmates during undergrad.

3. Is teaching your ultimate passion? Is your job as a designer a means to an end, or do you derive satisfaction from it as well? Tell me about your day job and what it means to you.

Yes, no other job gave me more satisfaction then teaching. My job as a Software Designer gives me a only a paycheck at the end of the month. It is there to meet ends.

4. What 3 life lessons do you resonate with the most? From your childhood to everything you do now, what are key pieces of advice you can give to the reader?

  • Never let anyone take decisions about your career, even if it is your parents. Go against everyone and do what you like, because you are going to live with the decision for the rest of your life.
  • Never trust people blindly. In the end, everyone is selfish in their own ways.
  • A breakup is not the end of your life. There is in fact beautiful life after that. Don’t give up.
Sreevatsav is a member of Alstom Toastmasters Club and a mentee of mine.

5. Awesome. Lastly, what can you leave the audience with?

Since I hail from Tirupati, anyone who wants to visit and have darshan [pray at the temple] can contact me anytime. My family loves to host and help anyone out there. Email me at sreevatsav.r@gmail.com.

Hello friendo, you made it. THANK YOU for reading!

This is Season 3 of my interview series. I believe everybody has an interesting story to share, even if they don’t know it themselves. I try and bring that out of them, so that you can see that someone else’s life is as complex and large and beautiful as your own. I believe that is inspiring — do you?
