These are a short sample of questions our community members have been trying to figure out.
Should I take up a $200,000 loan to pursue higher studies?
Should I quit my job that pays well and provides financial security?
Should I leave my city and relocate to pursue something completely new?
I have been rejected every time I apply for this job. Should I try something different?
I am confused about what to do next? I am in my most productive years , yet I feel lost and directionless.
I have to move to a new country and am unsure how I will fit into the new culture. I am feeling nervous.
These are big, consequential decisions that will shape the trajectories of their work and personal lives. Preparing to take such decisions requires clear mental models, a tribe of mentors, a high trust environment, personalized introductions and 1:1 coaching. That’s where the “Taking Big Decisions” program curated by Network Capital comes into picture.
In this fellowship, you will learn how to allocate time and headspace to take big decisions. You will work with a series of coaches to define your goals and figure out a clear strategy to achieve them using tools like the Eisenhower Matrix. We understand that simply knowing tools and mental models isn’t enough. Applying them needs hand-holding.
We cannot tell you what to do. All we can do is to help you think things through with clarity and conviction. Join us on April 23 & 24!

We strongly believe that talent is equally distributed but opportunities are not. To help fix this divide, we are launching a talent collective that will help our members get access to curated professional opportunities.
We publish 3 long-form essays every week along with a curated job board for our subscribers. Reading these newsletters will help build your category of one.
💌 Managing work and life in a state of deep anxiety - We have observed that people often start trying to solve the core issue or make it go away before analyzing it. This leads to muddled problem solving where we jump from one aspect of a challenge to another randomly.
💌 Is finding career purpose distracting? - Mission, purpose and calling are discussed at length in management literature but not enough emphasis is placed on the nature of job - the daily activities, projects and experiences. While purpose adds meaning, the actual work needs to be considered carefully to figure how we actually feel about our job.
💌 Explore, then Exploit: Secret to Hot Career Streaks - There are periods of concentrated success and phenomenal productivity in our work lives. In just a few years, professionals seem to have accomplished way more than others. Albert Einstein in the early 1900s, Aretha Franklin in the 1960s, Steve Jobs in the 2000s, Elon Musk in the 2020s. For the longest times scientists have been trying to figure out why.
