Almost with a touch of philosophy, yet firmly grounded in the reality of business and national affairs, the author argues that 'there is no reality, only perceptions of reality. 'Perceptions influence our thoughts and actions and these, in turn, are influenced by the 'lenses' through which we see the world. There are six such lenses: purpose, authenticity, courage, trust, luck and fulfillment. R. Gopalakrishnan uses, as examples, the lives of 'ordinary people' to illustrate his view. By rotating the lenses, Gopal attempts to understand what success in career and life really means. While biographies of celebrities are inspiring to read, they are often read like dramatic fairy tales-out of the scope of an average person. But in six lenses, Gopalakrishnan narrates the stories of PLUs (People like us) - as he likes to call them - from business and society, whom he has known during his illustrious career. He elucidates the extraordinary lessons that can be learnt from everyday experiences and shows how, by altering our perceptions, we can better overcome the challenges we face at work and in family matters. Thought-provoking, profound and questioning, Six Lenses will make you look at your life and career in a different light.
