CashKaro’s Rohan Bhargava reveals how 'Atomic Habits' revolutionised his work life
Fiction and fantasy make it to the CashKaro co-founder's guilty, reading pleasures list.
“I usually stick to self-help, biographies and business books for knowledge and insight. Occasionally I find myself grabbing something from the fiction section just for fun,” he told ET Panache. “My guilty reading pleasure has always been the fantasy and fiction genre.”
But it is a self-help book that holds the number one spot on Bhargava’s must read list.
“One of the best books that I’ve read is ‘Atomic Habits’ by James Clear. It shows a clear-cut picture of how the effects of our habits multiply as we repeat them. It helped me understand how improvements made on daily basis multiply and help us reach our goals.”
Recalling how the book helped him take crucial decisions during product development, Bhargava said, “In a course of few days, the difference seemed to be quite small but when I applied the same effort day in and day out, it led to an enormous effect. When working on the first version of CashKaro’s Mobile App I applied this approach to the product and the way the app has transformed over the past few months has been amazingly rewarding.”
Aside from ‘Atomic Habits’, here are the other four books that round out Bhargava’s top five must-read list.
'Vedanta Treatise : The Eternities' by A. Parthasarathy
'How to Win Friends and Influence People' by Dale Carnegie
'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho
'The Harry Potter' series by J.K. Rowling
