The case of Siddharta (iconic founder of Cafe coffee day) highlights a blind spot in our culture. We overestimate achievement and underestimate fulfilment.

This isn’t a first. There have been many celebrated, revered, iconic entrepreneurs, overachievers and affluent individuals that have lost their sanity, succumbed to destructive habits or committed suicide.

Achievement is a science. Follow certain steps and you’ll reach your goals. Focus on one path until successful.

However, Fulfilment is an art. We feel fulfilled by various things, acts and events and it’s unique to each of us.

The lesson for us on the road less travelled is simple: Apply the science of achievement and practice the art of fulfilment.
