E27 - Antifragile (Author- Nassim Nicholas Taleb) - with Shaloo Garg

December 8, 2021

A must listen podcast for a dose of energy, positivity and facing uncertainties! In this episode, I had a full of energy conversation with Shaloo Garg , Managing Director at Microsoft about one of her favorite books - Antifragile by Nassim Taleb. When we first met, I still recall our intense conversation about calamities in the economy and the world in general as a result of COVID-19. The author of the book defines the term antifragile this way: Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty.

In this podcast, Shaloo and I go down the path of core attributes of Anti Fragility, volatility and uncertainty as key catalyst for change, her philanthropic work in social impact space, key strategies to succeed amidst the uncertainty  and how startups prepare for the future and increase their odds of success.

Top 3 take away to pave the way for your 10x growth:

  1. Fragile breaks with stress,  antifragile becomes stronger
  2. Embrace chaos and take risks to fuel progress
  3. Skin in the game is the name of the game
