Over his years running Hackertrail, Tushar has learned the importance of self-care. Most importantly, he has learned to prioritise time for himself each morning and ensure a good night’s sleep in order to feel refreshed and recharged. Weekends are particularly important for an entrepreneur, as Tushar points out, “the lines between the professional and personal are blurred.” He, therefore, carves out time on weekends to attend to Hackertrail matters, ensuring that he uses this window effectively to allow time for leisure.
Tushar also emphasises the importance of support from family, friends, mentors and advisers. This is of great value during times of stress, inevitable long hours, and periods of low confidence. He adds, “the more you share, the better you get. Share your journey, your pitfalls and your wins.”
Of course, there is always room to improve in this arena, especially for a single-minded entrepreneur, and Tushar is no exception. He now aims to focus on gratitude, specifically, recognizing and celebrating small wins and successes with his team.
