That's what Ravindra MK, co-founder of co-working space BHive, did last year when he decided to leave and join a real estate firm. According to reports When Walmart announced its acquisition of a majority stake in Flipkart earlier this month, cofounder Sachin Bansal decided it was time to cash out. In a Facebook post to employees before leaving the company that he founded with Binny Bansal in 2007, he wrote: "Sadly my work here is done and after 10 years, it's time to hand over the baton and move on from Flipkart.

Entrepreneurs have reportedly grown up admiring the corporate labels of 'aggression', 'hard-driven', 'fire in the belly' and 'failure is not an option'. These labels dovetail into a strong leadership competency called results orientation. Logically, it makes so much sense After all, the function of business is business!.

According to press reports exercising twice a week may improve thinking ability and memory in people with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), suggests a recent study. Researchers explained that people with MCI have milder symptoms like they struggle to complete complex tasks or have difficulty in understanding information they have read, whereas people with dementia have trouble with daily tasks, such as dressing, bathing and eating. MCI is a medical condition that is common with ageing. While it is linked to problems with thinking ability and memory, it is not the same as dementia. However, there is strong evidence that MCI can lead to dementia. Early action may keep memory problems from getting worse.
