Elon Musk – 1 Page Resume

This resume for Elon Musk proves you never, ever need to use more than one page.

Let’s say your accomplishments vary and range from creating an electronic payments industry to invigorating the solar energy market to inventing high-performance electric cars to launching a commercial space and rocket industry.

You may think that all of that would surely need a couple of pages to explain on a resume, right?

Not at all, say the experts at online resume-writing firm Novorésumé , who believe in the less-is-more concept for writing resumes.

They created a sample resume for Musk to prove ” even a highly successful career like his can be presented in a one page resume,” cofounder Andrei Kurtuy tells Business Insider

Musk is famous for his high standards, and he has a reputation as a rough guy to work for. He once described himself as a “nano-manager,” a play-on-words meaning he’s even more controlling than a micro-manager. ( “I have OCD on product-related issues. I only see what’s wrong. I never see what’s right. It’s not a recipe for happiness,” was how he explained his management style).

Still, it proves that with the right design, you never, ever, need more than one page for a resume.

Good Read: O. Henry in Hindi Cinema

OHenry

I have read O Henry’s short stories (lost the book to some “friend” – who collected the book and never showed up. Sadly, this has happened with so many of my books – and friends ). And I always felt that many of his stories could be made into movies. Just got to know that many have been!

Here is a good blog on Hindi movies based on stories written by O Henry. I knew about Lootera and Raincoat. But good to know there are several others.

The Tipping Point, Chess and My Prediction

Quotation-Anatoly-Karpov-Chess-is-everything-art-science-and-sport-60-6-0632.jpg

 

Malcolm Gladwell’s bestseller book “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference” was published in 2000. Gladwell defined a tipping point as “the moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point“. The book seeks to explain and describe the “mysterious” sociological changes that mark everyday life. The overarching theme is that there is a moment – a tipping point in life of someone or something at which things suddenly turned around. There is a paradigm shift in pre- and post- scenarios. It is hard to predict when the tipping point occurs; however, once it happens it creates huge thrust. This is somewhat like Flywheel Effect or Snowball Effect. There is a confluence of multiple factors that come together and start working in same manner/direction and the whole thing moves to a new level – new paradigm.

I think I read the book (in parts) in 2005 and it reminded me of a prediction I had made in 2000. I have been playing chess since 1988-89 and have been following growth of chess in India over the years. Between 1988-89 and 2000 I played as many local chess tournaments as I could; followed chess news, subscribed to magazines; saw many Indian chess players (many of them my peers who started with or after me) grow from strength to strength in FIDE rating.

I was seeing lots of activity on ground, and yet it was not reflecting in number of Chess Grand Masters from India. Till year 2000 India had only 3 Chess Grand Masters viz. Vishwanathan Anand (in 1988), Dibyendu Barua (in 1991), and Praveen Thipsay (in 1997).

After several misses, Vishwanathan Anand became FIDE World Chess Champion in year 2000. The same year Abhijit Kunte became the fourth Chess Grand Master from India and that is when I made a prediction. I discussed this at length with my friend who can confirm my prediction then. I predicted that “India has 4 Chess Grand Masters today (in 2002). But I won’t be surprise if India 40 Chess Grand Masters by year 2020 – 10 times as many in next 20 years

Yesterday (13th July 2017) I read news that Anurag Mhamal became India’s 48th Chess Grand Master! So, my prediction not only came true – it, in fact, was surpassed both in terms of timeline and the number of GMs. And we still have 3.5 years to go till end of 2020!

I had not read Tipping Point in 2000 (not sure if it was published then), I didn’t know about the term too. But I knew about “the concept” and saw it building up. Let me share what I thought then.

India won Cricket World Cup in 1983. Sachin Tendulkar was just 10 years old then. But he often mentions that that win was a turning point for him. He dreamt of playing for India and winning World Cup trophy for India again. Such phenomenal Sporting events or icons inspire kids, youngsters and the momentum builds up. For Example, surge in Tennis and Badminton players after Sania Mirza and Saina Nehwal’s success.

Chess had always been a very popular game in India. So, it didn’t require the kind of trigger the other sports needed (Tennis, Badminton etc). However, two independent events helped reach the “tipping point” in Chess in 2000.

First event was of course Vishwanathan Anand becoming World Chess Champion in 2000! He had always been a Chess star – but becoming World Champion meant that he was known outside the Chess world – and that attracted media, press, advertisers etc. Chess started getting some column-inch space in newspapers and chess tournaments and players started getting sponsorships.

The second effect I could sense was more technical and subtle. Chess Grandmaster title can be earned by earning 3 Grand Master norms. The norms can be earned by playing in Grand master level chess tournaments worldwide, by playing and scoring certain points against Grand masters.

Current norm requires “a total of at least 27 games in tournaments involving at least three other Grandmasters, including some from countries other than the applicant’s”. Now since India had only 3 grandmasters till 2000, not many Grandmaster level tournaments used to happen in India. So mostly the players would have to travel abroad (multiple times) and participate in tournaments and earn GM norms. India had just opened economy in 1991 and travel abroad was just becoming affordable and ubiquitous. Many strong chess players in 1970s and 80s could not travel abroad. That changes by 2000 and continues to change dramatically since then. The overall GMs in the world was also increasing. In 1972 there were only 88 GMs in the world (33 of them came from Russia!). Today we have more than 1000 Chess GMs in the world!

Another point I though was about the lead time for producing top class chess players. That time was also shrinking. Garry Kasparov and Vishwanathan Anand became Chess GMs in their teens. Since then the age when players become GM has been coming down. Many players become GM by the age of 15-17. So even players who were born in 2000 could become Chess GMs by 2020. Plus, there were huge number of talented players born in late 70s and 80s who could potentially become GMs.

I didn’t do any calculation as such, but I could sense in 2000 that India was at the cusp of Chess revolution and we would have many more chess GMs in coming years! And I am glad that I was proven right…or maybe wrong, given that my prediction was surpassed long back!

So, here’s another prediction – considering that we had 4 GMs 2000 and that we have 48 Chess Grand Masters as of today.

India will NOT have more than 100 Chess GMs (alive) by 2030.

I will explain my prediction in 2030!  But I hope I am proven wrong this time!

Hint: Think about Chess GM Inflation and possibility of changes in norms

कन्सेशन

१० वी, १२ वी च्या वर्षांमध्ये विद्यार्थी, पालक आणि आजूबाजूचे सगळेच अचानक “मार्क्सवादी” होतात. हल्ली “बेस्ट ऑफ ५” वगैरे प्रकार सुरु झाल्यावर १००% मार्क्स ही मिळायला लागले आहेत. आणि एखाद दुसरा नाही, तर ५०-१००-२०० च्या संख्येने!

 

नुकतेच १०-१२ वी चे निकाल लागले. निकाल लागल्यावर लगेच कोचिंग क्लासेस मध्ये चढाओढ सुरु होते – जास्तीत जास्त “हुशार” विद्यार्थी त्यांच्या क्लासचे मेंबर होते (शिकले असं नाही. फी भरून मेंबर होते इतकच). मग एकाच विद्यार्थी ४-५ क्लास चा मेंबर (एकाच विषयासाठी) आहे असं पण दिसतं.

 

त्यावरच आधारित एक धक्कथा अर्थात धक्का देणारी कथा –

 

 

धक्कथा : कन्सेशन

 

`अकरावी-बारावीच्या ऍडमिशनसंदर्भात खरंतर माझ्याशी बोलण्याची गरज नाही. आपली स्टँडर्ड प्रोसीजर आहे, बाहेर काउंटरवर तुम्हाला…’

 

क्लासचालक सरांनी अभ्यागतांना झटकून लावण्याचा प्रयत्न केला, पण, भेदरल्यासारख्या दिसणार्या बापाने एकदम मार्कशीट काढून पुढे केली… क्लासचालकाने अनिच्छेनेच ती हातात घेतली… `अरे वा! 98.77 टक्के मार्क. व्हेरी गुड!’

 

त्यांनी भेदरलेल्या मुलाचा हात हातात घेऊन अभिनंदन केलं आणि म्हणाले, `90 टक्क्यांच्या वर मार्क असलेल्यांना 30 टक्के सवलत आहे आपल्या क्लासच्या फीमध्ये. ओके?’

 

बापलेकांची जोडी तरीही ढिम्म हलत नाही म्हटल्यावर क्लासचालक सरांनी एक कागद ओढला आणि त्याच्यावर काहीतरी लिहून खाली फर्राटेदार सही करून तो त्यांच्यापुढे सरकवला आणि म्हणाले, `ही चिठ्ठी दाखवा काउंटरवर, 40 टक्के कन्सेशन, फक्त तुमच्यासाठी.’

`पण, सर…’ भेदरलेल्या बापाने काही बोलण्याचा प्रयत्न केला, तो अर्ध्यात तोडून क्लासचालक म्हणाले, `आता पण नाही अन् बिण नाही, यापेक्षा जास्त कन्सेशन आम्ही कोणालाच देत नाही. तुमच्यासाठी म्हणून मी हा अपवाद केला. मुलगा हुशार दिसतोय, पैशासाठी त्याचं शिक्षण…’

 

हातानेच त्यांना थांबवत भेदरलेल्या कोकरासारखा दिसणारा मुलगा नम्र पण ठाम सुरात म्हणाला, `सर, मी बोलू का? मी हे मार्क कोणताही क्लास न लावता, चाळीच्या खोलीत अभ्यास करून मिळवलेले आहेत. एवढेच मार्क मी दरवर्षी मिळवत आलेलो आहे. ते समोरचे क्लासवाले माझा फोटो त्यांचा विदय़ार्थी म्हणून छापायचे दोन लाख रुपये देतायत. तुम्ही किती देऊ शकता, ते सांगा. आकडा तीन लाखाच्या पुढे असेल, तर पुढची चर्चा करू. आत्ताच चार लाख रुपये दिलेत, तर बारावीच्या परीक्षेनंतरही माझा फोटो छापता येईल तुम्हाला. त्यात मी घसघशीत कन्सेशन देईन तुम्हाला! थिंक ओव्हर इट!’
