In the spirit of entrepreneurship in the startup world, there is one thing which I believe is very important, and that is to stay relevant!

It is not a thought but the most imortant thing and that word reflects a lot of parameters that makes a brand, a leader, a great product , a company.

Everyone need to stay relevant in this fast internet of thing world. Take technology as a parameter. It needs to stay relevant for both class and mass. Today’s innovation in technology is tomorrow’s life saving drug to millions. But before that it has to go through the test of relevance.

relevance is in every walks of life.

If you are a homemaker , you need to stay relevant, supper relevant. You have kids who look up to you, Your better half depends on your inputs, love, care and support. Your family count on you. You are relevant!

If you are a post man or a delivery guy or gal, you are relevant for the society. Huge responsibility. The value chain of the supply chain depends on you. You need to be that relevant. So many startups depend on you. You complete those food tech, delivery startups of the world.

If you are a student, you need to be relevant. Focused. Weather you are good in sports, labs, art or science. You are relevant to the school or college you represent. And if you thing you represent your school or college , then you better stay relevant. You don’t have to get A+ or 99.9% to stay relevant but you just need to give your best and keep contributing. If your are contributing your bit then for me , you are so relevant.

If  you are a leader then needless to say what is the degree to which you need to stay relevant. You have followers and they are what you guide them to be. It is a responsibility.

If you are a baker or a home baker then staying relevant is like making the best cup cake for your client. If you are not passionate about making cakes, then you are not doing justice to your followers and you are not relevant. If you do not have eye for details, the you cant say you are a sugar-crafter. If you are doing just to add to your portfolio then you are relevant to the community.

I can go on and on about the different types of jobs and roles in the society, but whatever you are doing and whom ever you associated with, you ought to be relevant. Software developer to flower vendor all need to stay relevant to keep it going.

We are in a open society, constantly seeking or being sought by internet. So being relevant is important.

Being relevant is no competition or certification of achievement but a way of life. And when people from all walks of life try to stay relevant, then they together make a great nation. A nation of relevant citizen. And that citizen for me is a true nationalist!
