    I have a very simple formula and I think that formula really works well everywhere: You just have to deliver. The organisation which you work for has an objective and you have to understand what that purpose is and what your organisation expects from you. And then you just have to go out there and deliver. It’s an unfailing formula. You deliver in one job and people who matter will notice it and praise you for it. And the next opportunity just arises. People are willing to take chance with you; they are willing to risk important assignments to you.”
