How do you stay sane and successful in your life and career?

Through his three-step plan, Rohan Puri explains how you can "fool" yourself into success and fulfillment. Understanding subtle shifts—from the way you carry yourself to the way you pose questions—will help you immediately embody the confidence needed to succeed. As he reflects and shares his experiences with startup culture, he explains the importance of optimizing for the present instead of worrying about the future.

Rohan currently works for the Camera Culture Group in the MIT Media Lab, focusing on wearable devices and mobile apps. Through startup competitions, innovation spaces, and local accelerators, he still works with dozens of startups.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
