Satya Nadella

Overview

You know who made their own way? Satya Nadella. In Hit Refresh: The Quest to Rediscover Microsoft's Soul and Imagine a Better Future for Everyone, he tells his story – and it can change our world.

Nadella was born in Hyderabad, India in 1967. His father tried to inspire him to become a great economist by hanging a poster of Karl Marx in his room. Similarly, his mother responded with a poster of the Indian goddess of fortune and prosperity. But the boy Nadella wasn't having any of it. His favorite poster was a blown-up image of the Indian cricket star, ML Jaisimha. Cricket proved to shape his future career as a CEO of Microsoft and taught him many life lessons that we can learn from as well.

"I learned that only through living life's ups and downs can you develop empathy; that in order not to suffer, or at least not to suffer so much, one must become comfortable with impermanence"
