Some of Vivek Srinivasan’s unique accomplishments;
  • He wrote a book in 12 hours only to realise that it still took about a year to get it published and out to the press.
  • He lost over 20 Kgs over the course of 15 months. It was a lot of work and a lot of effort, but ultimately very satisfying and enriching experience. He learnt a lot about himself in the process.
  • Travelled to Europe and visited 7 cities in 8 days across 4 countries because he wanted to see everything. Turned out Vivek need a vacation after that vacation. Those 7 days were work. Also, he had to book only 2 nights in a hotel, was travelling most nights!
